happy heart day!

this day last year we were taken on a wild ride.
today we celebrate 365 days of mom's new heart valve.
we love you mom!
(we sent these balloons to surprise mom at work... and wahoo for mom and dad taking pictures and emailing them to us!! im so proud. )


poor baby

cohen is 7th months old today.
and what did he get? a few things.

3 new teeth. (the 3 to left of his fang)
(he's not always this unhappy, only when we hold him down to take pictures of his 3 erupting teeth... and i think he was ready to eat too!)

and the chicken pox.

he has been surprisingly chipper, but we can tell when the medicine wears off!

well, my machine is stitching, and my sunday night TV is almost on, but i just wanted to share these pictures, as i know some of you were patiently waiting to see them :)

have a great week :) hugs to you all!


Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving from our home to yours!
I'm having a 'black' friday sale at the store... actually it's now through Saturday, check out the details here or here.

I made the BIG candy corn hat for Mr. A (the custodian) at Lilly's school. (Thanks to Daddy for being a sport in being my model!) Mr. A was wearing his hat Tuesday when I picked the kids up, so that made me smile!! The little hat was a garage sale find when Lilly was a baby...

The fang! (The pic is blurry but you get the point!) The boy now has 5 teeth (2 came in at once a few days ago)... so I had to get a picture before the other ones come in more.

Here is one of my pumpkin rolls. I think I've made about 12 this season :)

The kids... this morning!

Happy Turkey Day!


a post for me!

when cohen was born we got the most adorable burp cloth with his name embroidered on it. as soon as i saw it, i wanted to be able to make my own.

well, i did something special for myself.
i bought myself a 'little' toy.

welcome to my new hobby!
hope you enjoy :)

the princess herself.
modeling a shirt she helped design.

pillowcases for some special boys (a new big brother and a bday boy)

part of my first official 'order' (from my great neighbor lesley!)...
a fun little tote for a little lady.

then i had to try another as a bday gift for a dear friend!

burp cloths for every baby i know :)

may i just say how cute they are??

the next several pics are gifts i made for twins :)
i took lots of combination pictures, just because i think they are too darling.

ok. that's it for now, but you know i'll be sharing more :)
and of course, i'll take orders ;)
(i'm working on a 'price list' for those interested.)



deja vu

as soon as i took these pictures of cohen, i immediately remembered some i had taken of lilly.

funny, huh?!?

i showed lilly her pics, and she was actually whining and in tears saying "no mama! tell the truth. that's not me. that's cohen."

i think i finally convinced her :)



this is dave's very cool pumpkin :)
it won him 2nd prize at his office's pumpkin contest :)

our family on trick-or-treat night!

the little man loves to stand...

here cohen models a onesie embroidered by mommy :)

hope everyone enjoyed the time change!
its always intersting to see how the kids react.

what did i do with the extra hour? (that i can remember)

-went to an 'embroidery party' (i have a new toy... )

-made 2 pumpkin rolls (after making my 1st one ever on saturday with our neighbor!)
-folded 4 loads of laundry
-made pumpkin soup

-made 2 trips to meijer

now ill try to stay up to watch my normal sunday nigh TV. sleep may be more appetizing.

have a great week everyone!
