I haven't been updating this on a regular basis. Life around the holidays...what else do I need to say. Here is a picture of Bri helping cook for Thanksgiving. She's such a delight! I managed to get her carry around quilt finished over the past weekend. I found several errors in it. They all had to do with laying it out before putting it together. I need better access to my pattern board I guess. It's over my cutting table and hard to reach plus the blocks kept falling off. Oh well, Bri likes it so that's all that matters I guess. I'll take a picture and post it. See if you can find the errors too! I'm going to try to take a new picture of Mia tonight and will post it tomorrow. We'll see if she's in a cooperating mood. We think her eyes are going to stay a dark blue. She sure is a cutie!

It's been very busy for the past few days...ok weeks. Mia is settling in. Bri is settling down. She only has trouble sleeping now since she's always slept in mommy and daddy's bed and now daddy is sleeping w/her on an air mattress until mommy gets Mia on some kind of schedule.

I've done some sewing but not as much as I'd like. I finished my flannel baby blanket for Mia last night and they already used it on her. I also made her several burp cloths out of scrap flannel. These are getting alot of use. I think I'm going to make up several of the baby blankets and matching burp cloths to have on hand for baby shower gifts. I cut the fabric and drew the words for my Santa pillows this morning. I got the binding cut and ironed for the twin's quilts last night. One quilt is tied and ready to have the binding put on. I'd like to sew it on tonight or tomorrow so I can hand sew the back of the binding on over the weekend. I'm slowly getting my projects completed! I still haven't finished the other twin quilt or Bri's. I also want to get back to working on the one I'm making for Brad. Oh and then there's the Valentine's one I want to start. So many ideas...so little time! Too bad I have to sleep at night!

Mia's Here


Mia made her enterance into the world last Friday evening at 5:15 or so. She weighed 7 lbs. 9 oz. and was 20 in. long. I think she looks a lot like her mommy! She's a beautiful baby. Brianna just adores her and wants to hold her all the time. We have to really watch her right now! She's going to make a great big sister though. We have been truly blessed.
The picture above was taken yesterday and the one on the right is of me, Bri and Mia on Sunday before church. Bri went w/me and Pappa and Mia stayed home w/mommy and daddy.
It's almost Bri's 2nd birthday. She'll be 2 on Sunday. Doesn't seem possible but it is. I went to Costco yesterday to order her cake. It'll have a sun and flowers w/happy faces on them. The plates have flowers and butterflys on them. I think we're doing pizza and cake to make it easier this year. Of course she'll have a pinata too! Oh goodie...more candy!!! The party will be on this coming Saturday afternoon. I think mommy invited about 50 people. Did I mention that I'm tired???
