Tonight for Family Home Evening we took the kids to the pumpkin patch over by the church and they all got to pick a pumpkin. I love watching them run all over trying to one-up each others pumpkins. After we settled up with the owner we went off for the traditional celebratory hot chocolate. Fun, fun :)

A Monkey and Temple Pics

The other day I went in to get Monkey and she looked like this. We are still curious how she got her arm out but at least she was happy :)

Saturday evening we went to the Temple Visitors Center with a friend from church and her family. It was stormy when we went in and then dark when we came out. Not the best pics but these are my favorites.

I loved the reflection in this one.

More Sewing

I am having "sew" much fun making these little shoes! I really love the micro-fiber ones above. They are totally washable but they look leather.

This is my new "go to" baby gift blanket. With the patchwork 4-square on the top and then the fleece on the back with satin blanket binding. SO cozy.

Here are a few favorites. I also updated their pics on the sidebar. They are different than what is posted here. Enjoy!!

Good Morning Beautiful

Sorry the pictures are a little dark but the flash was way too much light on her. But this is the sight I see every morning. She always has the blanket in her mouth and is so happy.

It's been Sew Long

I apologize for the tardiness in posting but I have been tackling the pile of fabric pictured above as well as helping teach my friend to sew.

These new baby shoes are my new addictions. They are simple but oh-so-cute! I enlarged the pattern to make a pair for Natalie but they looked like clown shoes, I have tweaked the pattern and am now really happy with it.

Since Natalie is sitting up I wanted to get a cart cover to help keep all the icky bugs out of her mouth. This pattern too was tweaked. I am happy to report that it fits resturant highchairs, regular shopping carts, and even the Costco carts.

These are my new favorite baby blankets. They are fairly simple to make, which is the only way that I can sew lately with Natalie. So as soon as the kiddos get over the tummy bug that they seem to have then I will take and post some new pictures of them.

Side note: Natalie went in for her 6 month appointment on Tuesday and she now weighs 18lbs. 8oz., and is 26 inches long. Such a sweet temperament she has :)
