bag and Veda and my mom

I made my mom this bag. It's another Super Tote. 
 Veda. Oh little Veda... so much to say and 1/3 of the time I can't understand her. Which can really tick her off...

 She loves story time at the library. She is also loving 'chapel' at Hendrix's preschool. The first 15 minutes on Thursdays is open for parents to come. And they sing songs. Veda thinks it's awesome -- Hendrix, not as much :) (although he many times says that music class was his favorite part of preschool)
 And my mom's here!!!
 Amber-fest started today!! So hopefully there will be more cake in my life.
 And more shopping trips with these cute ladies!

Saturday at the park

Saturday was a beautiful day, so we decided to head to a park!  
There is this park in Georgetown that my kids love, but after we drove there we found out that it had all been taken down! 
But we found another great park and had a great time.

Veda's new bed and quilt

Since Veda learned how to get out of her crib- it was time for a big girl bed! And a big girl bed means a new blanket for her bed. Quinn has a darling comforter from Target, but I needed one that matched that was toddler bed size. So off to Joann's to find some matching fabric. I was worried I wouldn't be able to get the colors close, but I was pleasantly surprised.
 The cutest little pike of scraps
 Thanks to my mom who helped me place these blocks. Sometimes RANDOM is so hard! I put her on FaceTime and we rearranged until it was right. My mom has a good eye :)

 Here's the back
 I am not a perfectionist when it comes to sewing, so quilts are usually my thing. This was maybe one of the easiest I've done though.
 The whole thing went pretty smoothly until I was binding... then some crazy pins stabbed me. I think I'll survive.
 And look! They kinda match!
 And she looks pretty sweet in her big girl bed.

Here's an over due update of what's been keeping us busy lately!

Lots of sisterly love!
 This little doll is perfectly cute and SOOOO naughty!!
 Climbing out of her crib all night and keeping her sister up makes her a sleepy baby! She couldn't even stay awake through lunch.
 This cool dude started preschool!! He loves it.
He also started soccer. He REALLY loves soccer
 More of this baby looking way too cute
 Lots of sewing

 Lots of silly faces. I seriously said to her "Veda! Show me your prettiest face!" And she did this:
 Veda and her darling friend Molly
 Two out of three cooperating for a picture.
 Nobody pulls off girl sunglasses and a temporary Cars tattoo quite like this guy
 More silly faces

 More sisterly love
 and PINK!!

my week

Just some stuff that's been going on.
We got this book from the library. SO FUNNY. I've never laughed out loud so much during a kids book.
 Target with my awesome friend

 A few friends met for brunch on one of the first days of school (we needed to help each other cope, right? And nothing does that like some delicious breakfast tacos)

Veda has been asking for "Cheetah shoe
s." I finally found some this week. She has been living in them.
Is she spoiled or what? I'm glad she didn't ask for anything bigger because I obviously indulge her. But look at her!! I can't help it :)
And her first time with pig tail braids!
