Hawaiian Dress

My parents got this dress for Alanna when she was about 3 or so. I think it shrunk in the wash when I wasn't paying attention, but I noticed that at least so now I get to put it on Lydia. And considering she doesn't hold still for shots much, these are great pictures of her.

A Different Kind Of Tree

So this last week has been windy, cold and rainy. We lost another large tree branch but the gutters are doing better since Dane cleaned them out a little.

I have been very domestically minded when I am not shivering, and I made this jewelry tree for my friend for her birthday. It turned out pretty well, and gave me an idea for one for me when I get a chance.

This might sound familiar

Remember that tape Mom made or nursery rhymes and Pooh stories? Does this sound familiar? I apologize for the camera angle, I was trying to get the sound without her seeing because I knew she would stop if she saw the camera.

So part of our tree fell off last night. it was the branch that had most of the back and about 1/3 of the tree in the middle. We are one of the last families on the street to have this problem. Evey one else has taken theirs out since this happens a lot.

Lydia and me after a bath.

I made a cake for friends last week. It's Dane's new favorite and might be mine, although I still love a good cheese cake. there was raspberry filling and cream cheese frosting along with the real raspberries on the outside. Oh so good!!

Little Jumpers

I like this shot. Trying to get both kids to jump at the same time and look like they were jumping was pretty hard. so the fact that their arms turned out the way they did was just an added bonus. They are such funny kids. They love playing in the front yard and our court is a pretty safe place to be.

Opening day - T Ball

Alanna had her opening day in T Ball on Saturday. They had their names called and they ran from third to home. I got this shot while holding a video camera, this camera, and having my knees hugged by a screaming baby. Not too bad! Sorry to the man whose rear is in this shot, but I was a little short on photo options at the time.

Oops, I passed 100 and didn't even notice

I passed over my 100th blog post and didn't even notice. My 100th post was about changing the color of Asher's room. So... Yay I made it to 100!

So, my SIL tagged me th other day... So here is the result.

A hand writing link up
The Questions:

1. What's your name and your blogs name?

2. What's your blogs URL?

3.Write, "A quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog!"

4. Favorite Quote.

5. Favorite Song?

6. Favorite band/singers?

7. Anything you want to say.

8. Tag people.

So that couch I mentioned? Here it is!

I did finally cut the tags off the couch but (I know it's silly) it was fun to leave them on for a few hours cause it PROVED it was new!!

We looked at all sorts of couches before we got this one. I loke microfiber couches but every time I sat on one, and then my kids touched me I got shocked. Lydia's hair was standing on end all the time, and I just couldn't do it. And I did not want leather because on cold mornings leather couches are cold too, what's the point of that! So my selection was limited since leather and microfiber are "in" right now, but this one seemed to fit.

And these last pictures are of Lydia. She fell asleep this way. then she would start to fall down and she would jerk awake to reposition herself. It was so cute to watch!!

Tree in the front

We have a tree in the front of the house - it's beautiful but I think it is going to smell pretty strong here in a while. But it's a pretty tree and I like it.
