Look at this girl. She is one of the best people I know. She's probably not too happy I put this picture up on my blog. But she also put it on hers.

We were companions on a mission TWO times. That's pretty rare. We walked the town of Brusque together in the hot summer days... then again at Jardim das Acasias.

I haven't seen Courtney in over TWO YEARS! I love her and miss her. She's an amazing friend.

And she can sing so many songs from Saturday's Warrior. I love it!

forgot the picture.

This is Sam.. watching THIS video. We watch it once a day at least. we both love it. :)

Making the Bed

So sometimes Jake and I have hard time making the bed. I hate it when it comes time to go to bed and the bed is all messy. It's kind of gross...

Anyways. We came up with a way to remedy that situation.

The deal: whoever is the last one to get out of bed has ONE HOUR to make the bed. If they don't, they owe the other one a FOOT RUB that night.

Wow! The bed has been made EVERY DAY since we made the deal.

It's great.

p.s. Sam is getting his second tooth in. He's crazy and VOLATILE. Poor baby... I just hold him and hug him... hopefully it breaks through and he feels better. soon.

To start out with - what a cute little baby bum, huh?

LOL - He cracks me up. Just trying to climb into the stroller. Love that boy!

On a different note - and not to get to personal and all... and I don't even know how many people read this blog..


I need some advice. Just a quick question to all you nursing mothers out there...

How tired do you get from nursing? As soon as you stop, do you feel a burst of energy running through your veins?

And for those of you who don't "nurse" you can tell me what you think... if you did... or whatever.

Thanks :)

Newest Creations....

So swear this isn't going to turn into a craft blog... But I am SO excited about these...
as excited as staying up past 1:00 in the morning to get them done.....

Another little skirt for Bekah... (Sorry - these pictures are from the camera on my computer... so they aren't the most high quality)

Just imagine a little noggin in this! I messed up on the pattern and it's smaller than it should be. Will probably only fit a newborn or a preme... Any takers? Let me know if you want it!

And last - a picture of the hottie husband. :) What a man!

Better go take care of Mr. Sammers. He's been a sleeping champ this week! Wednesday he took a 4 1/2 hour nap! WOW. Can I say THANK YOU! :)

Owl Baby

This is what I am making for Sam for Halloween - I've been debating about his costume for about a month now. :) You would think I would be studying Criminal Procedure or something. Nope - Halloween costumes :)

I can't wait to see him in this - I'll post pictures :)

Oh - and one more thing - I MADE THIS YESTERDAY (during Sam's nap time)!
It's for Bekah - her mom watches Sam on Monday's and Tuesdays while Jake and I are in class at the same time! :)
