I made these two dresses: the little one for Molly and the big one for her cousin Felicity. I got the pattern for Mother's Day and couldn't wait to try it. I haven't sewn any clothes in at least 5 years so don't look too closely. But I thought they turned out pretty good and I have a few improvements to try next time. Kelli (my sis and Felicity's mom) bought the blue fabric for me while she was going to school in BYU-Hawaii. I thought it would be great to make something for both of our girls.
The inspiration comes from Elizabeth who makes the cutest dresses for her super cute daughter. Hopefully next time my dress will look as good as one of hers. Thanks Elizabeth!

I think the girl wearing the dress is pretty cute too! It looks cute with jeans or leggings underneath too.

Mother's Day

Mother's Day was great! Our church is at 2 pm (GAG!) but we made the best of it and just had a real leisurely day. It actually started the night before with a 30 minute massage for me and then I came home, put on some pjs, and read magazines in bed. Heaven!
On Sunday we had Elaine, Devin's Mom, over for a huge breakfast. Then we went to church and then over to my Grandma's for some more wonderful food.
I really loved the Orchid Lei that Devin got me. I wore it all day and felt beautiful and special. Plus I smelled great!
The dress Molly is wearing was the dress that my cousin, Grace, wore to our wedding. She was 1 year old at the time. My Aunt Cheri saved it for 7 years until I had a girl and then gave it back to me. Isn't that so sweet?!
It only took Molly 10 minutes to rip the big flower off the front. Oh well. Nothing a little hot glue can't fix.

Pictures by Sam

Sometimes I let Sam take pictures of Molly. Then I make him delete all the ones without her "cute face". He loves to chase her around and she loves to be chased around. Win Win. He's not too bad either.My two trouble makersThe best Daddy ever!

Still Here

We're still here. We're just trying to survive the winter. Sam is really close to being potty trained (working on #2), and Molly is super mobile. It's busy, sometimes crazy, but also pretty fun.
