Five Days : :

Oh, what an amazing and insanely busy stretch of days I have had! Beginning in the wee hours of this past Thursday, this is what the last five days have looked like!

Thursday we welcomed a new nephew to the family! Baby Liam -- born April 19, 2012 -- Just look at his tiny feet!

Little feet -- 4 hrs old

Isn't this the sweetest picture!? Here Liam is with my husband, just 4 hours old!

Friday my husband and I celebrated our first decade together as a married couple! April 20, 2012 -- 10 years!! This weekend we have a relaxing trip planned -- I can't wait!

me and mr 10 years!


Saturday was all about celebrating our little man Jacob! April 21, 2012 -- Jacob turned EIGHT!!!

EIGHT!!!

Sunday after a brunch to celebrate everything above, I came home to work on a long list of Birthday Crowns to help so many others celebrate as well. This is what my desk looked like Sunday afternoon. Please tell me this looks like a lot of work! It was!!

And, this Monday morning, after a very late night followed by an early sewing session, I am happy to have this large order finished! Well...with just eight more crown orders to go tonight!

Then, I think it's finally time to make that baby blanket!

  1. Wow ! Congratulations on the birth of your new nephew, your son's 8th birthday, your 10 year anniversary (great photos by the way) and finishing up those beautiful crowns. Awesome. They are so cute. Did you make the pattern for those or where on earth did you find the pattern for those? So very cute.
    My nephew's birthday party is coming up and I have been enlisted to help do somethings for the party and those crowns would be so cute. Love it.
    drop me an email jenniferdannielle@comcast.net regarding the pattern for the crowns.

  4. Oh, that little baby Liam is gorgeous. What a sweet face...he's a beautiful baby! Oh, that little foot. I never get to see or hold babies and I just love them! Teenagers....not so much but babies...oh yeah!
    Your husband is a kisser and he's cute too! I can say that as I'm old enough to be his Mother. Happy Anniversary and Happy Birthday to that handsome young man there! How you did it all this last weekend is a miracle! But you did! Congrats to you but don't forget to take care of yourself.
