Oliver + S

Oliver + S sells super cute sewing patterns. This last month they gave this pattern away for free. You just download it from their sight www.oliverands.com 

I made two pairs of these "sunny days shorts" and added a ruffle at the bottom. I love how they turned out. They were so easy too!
I added a pocket on Marian's shorts to help me know front from back. I guessed at its placement so it looks a little off. But still cute :)

2014 will be my summer of sewing !!!

Freezer Meal Clubs

So I wanted to try out freezer meal club with my ward. Now that I'm no longer sick and pregnant or sleep deprived, I would like to do things that create balanced friendships. Time to be proactive about relationships rather than just grateful for those who are willing to give and give and help and help.
My first mass email had 15 responses.Two days later we are at 10 ladies. After our first orientation meeting I'll be happy with 6.

Baby Josephine is Here

I love this photo that Stacey Peterson took. She did our birth video too. She was great!

More importantly, I love this new baby. She is adorable. She is so happy and makes me smile when ever I catch her eye. I cannot be happier. I love all my babies but let's face it, some are easier than others. I've been telling everyone I have "post-partom euphoria." Baby Jo Jo is so easy going and is loved by her sisters. She sleeps 8-10 hours in a row, at night. I was very sick with her pregnancy and now I think I'm getting some pay back. I feel so very blessed!

The Annual Gingerbread/Grahm Cracker House Contest

Abbey's, notice the care she took in placing the licorice tape as shingles.

Notice the frosting on her cute face. Amelia really enjoyed making hers all by herself this year.

Marian didn't really help me make hers, she played wiht this at the Manwaring's instead. It is a house so, it counts

And for Ben, he made a whole town. It is in rememberance of the rooftops he hopped in Calistle as a youth.

The winner of the night can be seen in the background. Becky used a hot glue gun to make a princess castle. So we disqualified her. It was spectacular.
