Snowmen & Shades

Okay, so here are the snowmen I've been working on. I'm not sure of either one. The first one needs something, the top is too plain I think, I don't know...

This one, well, have you ever seen something in your head and then when you made it, it's just not right? I don't know what to think of this guy. I think I need to taper the hat to make it a little wider on the top. That way the berries and greenery will come out better. Not just shooting straight up. Maybe a more colorful scarf?

And I just HAD to share these. Our friend Gloria stopped by last night with presents. Shades and swimming suits. We are too cool for words...

Flowers, Smiles & More

I'm finally making some headway in my craft room. This is one of the new designs I came up with for this year. This gingerbread is flat and embellished with sweet annie, bay leaves and a cinnamon stick. I have other items started that I'll post photos of later. I need some opinions on them.

I had some time to get into my flower garden the other day. I was a little too fat in the fall to cut down my flowers last year. So I got that done and some weeding. These stones are a little walk way to the hydrant. I had dug up some grape hyacinth a couple years ago and had them in a bag setting on one of these stones. I never got around to planting them and the bag busted open and they planted themselves. I think they did a good job.

Here is a shot of my flower garden. All of the bulbs I planted two years ago are coming up strong. My peonies are also coming up fast.

And of course my tulips... The ones that the bunnies let grow anyway.

Aren't these darling. These are the gifts you receive when you have talented friends.
They are baby towels wrapped up to resemble cupcakes. Her specialty is real cupcakes and cookies. Check out her blog: Sugar & Meringue

I went to a baby shower for my next door neighbor today. A great excuse to get everyone dolled up. Unfortunately, only one was awake at a time, so I didn't get a picture of all three together.

New Things!

This is our Easter picture. I tried so hard to have three happy babies, it just didn't happen. What can you do?

We had our 4 month check up. Everything looks great! Rylan weighs 12.10, Brett 13 and Brileigh 11! I was tempted to ask the doctor about cereal but I figured he would say no since they are only 2 months adjusted. Then to my surprise he told me to start them on it! Of course the video camera had to come out for this monumental moment! These videos are of their very first bites. They did amazing! I never imagined it would be this easy to spoon feed them. Since they started cereal they only get up once in the night now. Hopefully I'll get them sleeping all night before too long.

One thing I am very thankful for is their afternoon nap. After they eat at 1 they all lay down til about 4-4:30. SO I have been able to get down to my craft room! Hopefully I'll have something to show for my time down there soon. It's just nice to be in there and have a little time to myself. But now, I need to tend to a grumpy baby!
