Earth day

We celebrated Earth day this year with our cousins Jaydee and Alexa. We filled a bird feeder with seed, made globe crayons, decorated and planted herbs for Gram, and ate dirt and worms!

Vintage Spring Dress Pattern

I made the dress Auri is wearing for Easter and thought I would share it with everyone!

Hippity Hop Easter is on its way!

Easter is almost here! I have always wanted to go all out on the kids outfits! I don't know what I was waiting for, but this year I decided to just bite the bullet!

 I wanted them to look like spring and colorful! I told the fabric lady what I was going to make with the fabric I chose and she she replied, "Well, they sure will be colorful!" with a bad undertone in her voice. I then doubted my choice in fabric. I will never let anyone else make me doubt my vision.

So I love little kids dressed in fancy attire, so I searched all over the internet (who am I kidding, I scoured pinterest. Pinterest is my life). I found some skinny slacks pattern for free (yay) and a vest that I altered (free again). I wanted Tate to have an actual blazer, so I had to buy the pattern- but good news, It is sizes 18mo- 8yrs so I will get my use out of it.

Benny loves his pants so much that he refused to take them off and asks to wear them everyday! I am so excited for Easter!!!!!!
