Daddy Style

This weekend I helped my mom with flowers for a wedding and when I got back home this is how I found Ruby's little feet. Erik had dressed her and couldn't find her other shoe. He had taken her out and about like this while I was gone. I thought this was super funny and such a dad thing to do.

I feel ten pounds lighter

I decided it was time to get rid of my rats nest. A few days ago my good friend Melinda did my hair. I love it! And I love her!

Crewel- A new discovery

I found these AMAZING pieces of art in my parents cabin in Utah a little while ago. They were way up in the attic hiding in a lonely brown box. I pulled them out and asked my mom about them and she said that she used to really be into crewel sewing when she was younger and that she made these when she was in her twenties like me. Surprise... another creative thing my mom is good at doing. She was excited that I loved them and told me I could have them.

I think there is something SO special about handmade art that's made by loved ones. I think it will be really fun to pass these down. I LOVE them!!! My sisters and I asked my mom to teach us some of the stitches. We started having craft night at my mom's house. It's been so fun learning how to do something new and spending time together. I can learn a lot from my mom. She's so talented!!!!

I had a great birthday!!!

One of the Presents Erik got me for my birthday was a Pinata. And I LOVE Pinatas!!!! Ruby and I had a great time! And, just in case your wondering......I told Erik I didn't want him to take any pictures of me because I'm super camera shy in the morning. So he said, "Then put a bag over your head." Ruby wanted to do it too, Ha!
