"ooh mom, what's this?"

"maybe i should smear it all over the place to make sure it's safe?"

"seems safe, mine as well shove a fistful in my mouth!"
soccer season is here. my nephew is playing. my sister is the team mom. jarens company sponsored the team. so i thought i'd chip in somehow also. so i made water bottle slings in their team colors and ironed on their soccer numbers to the side.
and look what my wonderful, thoughtful, caring, loving, generous, kind, amazing, hardworking, cutie-patootie husband got me for my birthday!
i've been dying for a cricut for a few years and i'm VERY EXCITED i have one now! check out all it can do....


i probably won't be posting the projects i make since i have many christmas gifts in mind ;)

our front bathroom has a dr. seuss theme. my sister ordered the one fish two fish shower curtain from pottery barn kids for me and it's ADORABLE! so i've been slowly putting the whole bathroom together and will show a picture later when it's all completed.
but what i have managed to do so far is make towel hooks. i picked up these unfinished wooden stars at walmart, paint them red, and decopauged the pictures onto them.

the pictures i got from a dr. seuss calendar i found at walgreens. so i cut out a few of them and stuck them in a frame.
in other news... nathan has his 2 bottom teeth :) you can kinda sorta see them here...
and lately, this has been the only way i can sew. when one is napping and tying up the other one with food while he watches me. lol.
this past friday night jaren and i went out for dinner. we decided to order nathan something off the kids menu. HE LOVED IT!!! not much food fell out of his mouth, LOL.
and recently we've learned that this kid will sleep ANYWHERE!

to nathan's favorite grandparents :)
and speaking of nathan, he had a drs checkup yesterday. at 7 1/2 months, he now weighs 22 lbs and is 29 inches long. he's a great crawler, has his 2 bottom teeth, pulls himself up onto things, can walk around if he's hanging on to something and gets into EVERYTHING! he's just such a joy to have in our family :)
