Projects, Friends, and Snow!!

F is for February Fun

As you may know, I have started doing a little bit of sewing with Wade's Aunt and cousins. A couple of weeks ago, I made a Valentine's Day Table runner. We invited friends over for dinner, so I could show off my new piece of Art. The following week, I worked on making an apron. After completing that project, I was so proud of myself. I even wore it all the way home from Idaho Falls, because I loved it so much. I love creating awesome things from virtually nothing. I can't wait to find out what I will create this week!

Wade's Aunt just let me use her material for this project; and , I absolutely love how it turned out!

I even quilted the hearts and boxes so it would show through on the backside.

I bet you've never seen a more beautiful table runner.

As it is probably obvious, this is my favorite project yet. Pleated ruffles, reverse patterns, and more. I can't believe I made that.

I even was good enough to pick out and buy my own materials on this project.

I'm all ready to bake!!


I just thought this was a cute picture of Aubrey being a Mommy's girl. When I get ready in the mornings, I let Aubrey sit on the counter in front of me and help me get ready. She loves playing with all the cool makeup inside that little purple bag.
Last weekend, friends of our invited us to go spend the weekend with them and another couple up in their cabin. We had to take a snow machine up to the cabin, because the snow was so deep and no cars could get out there. That was Aubrey's first time riding on a snow mobile. She was a little concerned at first, but in the end she loved it. That night, we made some pizzas, played some ping-pong, and just hung out. The next morning, we all bundled up, including Aubrey, to go sledding. This was Aubrey's first time ever sledding and Wade and I got to go down with her! While Aubrey took a nap after the sledding fun, we found some snow drift cliffs and jumped off them. It was so much fun and we all had a blast!!!

Aubrey all bundled, ready to go sledding!

Me and Aubrey enjoying the cool, crisp air and beautiful view.

Aubrey's first time snowmobiling, she got to ride on a sled pulled behind the mobile. After sledding, she fell asleep on my should as we just cruised around the property.

Wade, jumping/rolling down a drift cliff!
...OUR JOY!...
Aubrey is getting so big now! Besides her two teeth, she is half crawling and half scooting across the floor! She now completely pulls herself up on our chairs and the couch. She loves her sippy cup, even if (especially if) most of the water gets on her. She has such a fun personality. Wade and I like to play tricks on her and pull her binky out of her mouth, and instead of crying, she smiles real big. Now we catch her all the time doing the same thing to herself. She bites down on her binky and pulls it out to make a popping noise, then she precedes to smile. I could go on and on about how awesome our baby is but, I've already have rambled on long enough. We love everyone and miss you all. I hope you all have a wonderful week!
