April Sewing

So this month has been fun. I made another skirt for Addison which she just loves and wants to wear everyday to school. I'm not that good and I don't want her to look "home made" but she doesn't seem to mind. I think if I could afford to get a serger I wouldn't be as concerned about the way it looks and I might not be as afraid to wash it. I have a fear of things coming undone in the wash:)

We also made these darling schlep bags (I think that's how it is spelled). The instructions we kinda hard to follow at first but once you make one it is a piece of cake to make more. The bag ends up being huge and can hold a ton of stuff. I can't wait to go to the pool this summer. I might try to modify it into a cool diaper bag with more pockets inside. I liked it so much, don't be suprised if you get one from me as a gift in the future:)

The bag looks small in the pictures but it expands to almost double this.

This is the inside of the bag with a big pocket.

They came, we saw, we cheered, we got on T.V.

So AMA Supercross finally came back to Utah after 5 years and of coarse my little family was soooooo excited. I really don't get all that into to competition and care who wins week after week until this series.(To me this is like one step up from being a NASCAR fan, I know WT right?) James Stewart and Chad Reed have been running a tight race and I won't lie, when we watch it on TV every week I have been really into it and excited for it to come to Salt Lake. We went to the event on Saturday. Nate and Noah went allllll day!!! They got pictures of everyone and got a few things signed. I came up later that night with the rest of the kids to watch the main event. It was so exciting. We had awesome seats (only bc Nate went opening day back in Oct. to get tickets and actually found out the track layout and went and sat in the seats to get a "feel" for the best view). They were jumping right in front of us. I felt like I could just lean forward and give the riders a High Five. It was well worth the money and the best part was that James Stewart won!!! He was behind for like the last 5 races and then pulled out ahead last week. At the end he stopped right in front of us and threw his goggles into the crowd ie: Nates Lap, but some giant fat dude next to him snatched them from Nates fingers. Crazy Fans!! All in all I hope they keep coming back to Utah. I was suprised how many people are into the sport here-Rice Eccles Stadium was full. The next day we had to watch it again on TV and good thing bc we were all on CBS-like 3 times. OK so you had to look close and play it in slow motion on the DVR but we were there for the whole world to see:)

Good Day SUNSHINE!!!!

Hello my old friend, how I have MISSED you. Does anyone else feel the same way I do? These past few days have been soooo good for me. I can't believe what a difference sunlight can make in your life. I wake up with energy. I get so much done. I want to be outside. I want my windows open. I like my kids playing outside and not watching tv or playing playstation. I have been thinking a lot lately about Light and I now understand why Jesus was considered the "Light" of the world. Everything that is good comes from Light. Life can only exist with Light. The word itself is uplifting. I know it will still be a bit before summer is here but I will take these past few days and run with it!

Is that a member of a boy band or my 5 month old?

Seriously!!! So I know this post is going to be lame but look at my little boy! He is wearing a Baby Rock vintage tee, boot cut jeans (because babies wear boots)and real VANS. Crazy that they make these grown up clothes for babies and even crazier that we buy them. I do have to say that actually this whole ensamble was given to us by way of hand-me-downs but still, how freakin rockin is WHIT?

PS I only posted this because he usually doesn't get out of pj's all day!
