wooden cradle and handmade gifts

For Holly's 1st birthday my granpa made her this wonderful wooden cradle for her dolls, she already loves it! for Christmas i decided i would make her a mattress, blanket and pillow for the cradle, i think they turned out pretty cute and i cant wait until she sees it all together....Santa will also be giving her the pretty brown haired doll.

Logan - 33 months

Tue. Feb 1st
snack time -
Logan: can i have a donut please?
Me: we don't have any right now...
Logan: can you buy me some?
Me: no, i don't think we need to eat things like that too often, what about some raisins and water?
Logan: YAH! OKAY!
i'm so glad little things make him so happy!
Wed. Feb 2nd
Logan insisted on wearing his underwear backwards, as getting dressed he said he wanted Lighting Mcqueen to be on his front and not his bum. So all day he had the little slip opening on the back and they looked so uncomfortable but didn't seem to bother him at all!

Our Advent Calendar

This is the advent calendar i made for the's 4oz. metal tins with magnets on the back and number stickers on the front, i plan to resuse it every year. This year there are only things inside for Logan, since Holly is only 5 months but next year there will be stuff for both. Inside for Logan there are some glitter glues, Toy Story lip chap (since he always wants to use mine), some chocolates and lots of notes, they notes either led to treat that wouldn't fit in the tins (a puzzle, a book, coloring book, straw cup) or have activities on them for us to do that day. He really loved opening the tin today, it's also great with the number learning because i ask him to find the "1"...first he pointed to 11, so i said just one "1".

2010 Christmas ornaments

Every year i want to make my kids a Christmas ornament until they are 18, so when they leave home they have a box to start their own Christmas tree off! I made Logan a fish for his first Christmas and an "L" for his second. Here are the ones i made this year...the green argle is for Logan, the pink damask one for Holly and the other 3 are for some other gifts. It was really fun to use some of my cute fabrics and only cost me around $2 for the ribbons and buttons.

Look what i did last night...

I made a new crib skirt for Holly and a few weeks ago i made her another crib sheet...she now has 5 and i don't think you can really have too many. I remember one day when Logan was younger he went through all 3 of his because of being sick. I love the skirt fabric and decided to try out making a pleat in the middle which has a little bit of the blue fabric like the flowers on the sheet. I have some fabric left so i may even make her another changing pad cover.

29 months - Logan

Just a few things i want to remember...
- yesterday Logan was telling me all about the day Holly was born, he said he remembered coming to visit us at the hospital and then asked me "did Holly wear her pajamas when she was in your belly?"
- today he wanted to put on his own underwear, he did it great! but they where backwards. I asked him if he wanted me to help him fix them and he said that no he likes them better this i guess he's wearing backwards underwear for the whole day :)
