Fun with Grandpa, Grandma AND Paint!

Posted on April 24th, by Amy in My kids. 3 comments

So it goes without saying this has been a busy week. I have so many blogs to catch up on – but find myself here for a few minutes and thought I would give you a few snipets of what has been going on!

Our girls love Grandma & Grandpa – they always bring presents! Yesterday Emmalie had to help Grandpa get something out of the trunk of his rental car. She was barely able to control herself when she saw a brand new princess bike – just what she “always wanted.”She had a blast riding her bike off and on – as adults would go outside with her. Grandpa even outfitted her with elbow and knee pads – just in case. Now once summer is in full swing (one more month of school) we … Read More »


Getting Thicker

We had haircuts the other day for the girls. Emmalie and Sophia are both working on growing lots of hair – my Owen, only boy has more hair than my girls. They were bald until 2 usually and then it takes a good 3 years to get real hair – opposed to the super fine baby hair.

Emmalie – loves posing!Ella needs a trim too, but Owen woke up from his nap before I could get to her. Soon enough!


Spring Break =)

Ella is home this week for Spring Break – unfortunately we woke up to snow falling this morning, again. (big sigh) My girls weren’t at all excited. Ella had hopes of riding her bike and scooter outside all day – it is spring break, I had thought about getting bubbles and watching them blow and blow. But once again it is too cold. In the Utah mountains, we get snow off and on through May even a bit in June if we’re lucky, but it has been a really long winter with lots of snow and we are really ready to move on.

On the bright side – I was able to complete my quilt! It was too dark all day to take pictures – I will try tomorrow. I love … Read More »


Yesterday – As Good As It Gets

Posted on April 5th, by Amy in My kids, sewing, work in progress. 4 comments

For this stay at home mom – yesterday was a great day! My mother-in-law offered to take my 4 and 21/2 year old girls for the day. I thought about taking a nap while Owen was napping, then I thought about cleaning the house more than the usual day to day. But in the end I decided to sew! Having a day to myself – with Owen – is a nice change of pace. I altered and cut out a pattern for Ella’s dress that was in the same pattern as her purse. It is Simplicity 2993. I was able to sew the bodice before it was time to go for a bike ride and pick her up at school. Also lots of fun – with Owen in a little trailer!

Baby Food

Posted on March 17th, by Amy in My kids. 2 comments

So today my creativity came out in making baby purees for my little man. Owen is nearly 9 months old and loves food! I purchased about a month ago “Top 100 Baby Purees” by Annabel Karmel, and it has great recipes. It’s also been very inspiring! To top it all off Owen loves everything I’ve made so far. Not only do I save money making his food, but I get to select the quality of foods that he is eating.

Now, my freezer is full for a few more weeks and I can get back to my quilt! If you have a young one I highly encourage you to check out the book and consider making your own purees.

My favorite puree of the day started with onion sauted in … Read More »
