Adam turns 3!!!

Adam turned 3 yesterday! For his birthday we all took him to Build-A-Bear. He got to stuff it and give it a bath...

then dress it in the 'dressing room' (So cute!)

The end result! I think I might ask to go there for my birthday! (Mom says that for a 20Th birthday it might seem a little odd. She might be right! But it was alot of fun!!!)
I sorta loaded these backwards, but anyways. Dad got home REALLY late so everybody got a sugar rush right before bedtime. He was so excited about his balloons and sat on the table and just watched them!

I'm not sure why Matt has this hat on. I got it as a Christmas gift from a neighbor. I guess he likes it!

Introducing Maverick

Here's our new puppy, Maverick. He is a pure bleed Beagle and is around 9 weeks old. He LOVES to chew EVERYTHING! So the past few days have consisted on buying numerous chew toys for the dog.

The Creation Museum

A couple weeks ago we were privileged to get to go to the Creation museum. It was better than we thought it would be. I enjoyed it so much! The life size people were incredible and so 'life like' and they talked to you!

More Quilts

Here are a few more quilts that we have done lately. This one was for a couples wedding at church.

This one is for Dayvid. He doesn't have a comforter for his bed so, we decided to make him one. The boy's room is patriotic, so it wasn't hard to figure out the fabric we wanted to use.

Christmas Eve

I made us all kids matching Christmas pajamas. I bought a dog, a Beagle, the Saturday before and made him something to match us all too!

I made all the pants and then Mom embroidered on the sweatshirts that we bought.

The Quilt is Done!!!!

I finally finished the quilt! It took a week, staying up till almost 4 in the morning, to finish the top and then just about 6 months to hand quilt it. It turned out beautiful but I'll NEVER do this again!!! But I'm happy to be able to tell people that I have done a Double Wedding ring quilt!

Me with it finally done!
