Dino tails!

More sewing fun! I saw these cute Dinosaur tails and had to make one for Judah. I drew everything out and sewed it up..pretty easy peasy. Judah really likes it.. so fun to be a kid and pretend! =o) You can find these at: The Blue Orange on Etsy!

Monsters in the Mailbox & Bob the Builders

I had to show a picture of these cute cute monster shorties I custom ordered from!!
I picked out the colors, gave her measurements and told her what I wanted. She got them done in record time and they are adorable! Perfect for summer! I've been wanting to Monster wool ever since I had seen Crankypants when Judah was little, now you have a hard time getting on their waiting list and a custom is sky high!

Over the weekend we went and got a desk and put up shelves in an attempt to declutter and organize the playroom/workroom/computerroom/etc. I'll have to get pics of everything, it looks a lot more organized. Joe snapped a few shots of Judah helping build the desk... our Bob the Builder.

Sewing for fun

I've finally got around to doing a little sewing just for the fun of it (not work related). LOL I did this really simple dress, and I plan to make a couple of more in different prints. So cute and perfect for summer!
I'll probably make a pair of fleece pants for underneath for the rest of the winter and a soaker for summer.

Addie's first word

I know this doesn't really count as a first word... but I'd like to think so! =o)

...more snow

More snow fell today... it managed to cover up our nicely shoveled driveway. Just a small amount compared to what went on last week. yuck.

Anyway, life goes on. Judah has been learning to recognize his letters..for the past two mornings we have been going over a pre-school curriculum, part of which he already knows. Today we learned the letter M and the number 2..and went over the color yellow. He really likes playing school and hanging his work on the refrigerator. =o)

Yesterday someone came and picked up our futon (from craigslist)..and my plan is to use that money and space to make a play/school area. I am really inspired by this mom's playroom!

Taxes have been filed! TurboTax is a wonderful thing! You can file online! We did the free version (which you have to pay to file state $25).

Tomorrow the plan is to get up early and sew, before we're off to grandma's house.
And here's what's on my laptop background. =o)

(sorry for the scattered train of thought in this post.. I think I'm losing my mind from cabin fever! lol)
