Sewing and the Zoo

3:12 pm by Janelle. Filed under: News

Recently my awesome mother-in-law got me a sewing machine…and though I am still trying to become a master seamstress (actually very far from it…) I have come out with a couple decent looking projects. My most recent, a baby blanket for new baby sister! Not that I am trying to show off my work…but sort of I am because it actually looks like a blanket! I surprised myself. I know, I know, sewing two squares of fabric together shouldn’t be that hard…and it wasn’t, only after the fact that I sewed the edge on wrong and had to get out the seam ripper and really had no idea what I was doing, just guessing as I went until eventually my mom came in and saved my from myself and told me how to do it…which was WAAAAY easier than what I was trying to do. Sewing two squares together can be harder than I thought. So here is the finished product:

And then some photos of our recent trip to the Folsom Zoo. It’s pretty small, but perfect for a short trip and Preston had fun!

Definitely a lot of peacocks…and they aren’t too afraid of people.

Photo Shoot

9:42 am by Janelle. Filed under: News

We attempted a photo shoot with Kelsey’s new little baby, Miller.  He is so precious!! Holding a teensy one makes me excited to have my own…though, I have to remember that it isn’t all cute clothes and snuggles…I have to keep reminding myself of that! I have to break my “equipment” into nursing again, and feed every couple hours…even through the night, change a zillion mustard poops (many of which will be up to her neck perhaps…) BUT, it is oh so worth it when I hear, “Mommy, you snuggle me?” or “Mommy, you nice girl. You priddy an you get flowers.” Kids are totally worth it.

And of course, I had to prop Preston up on the table…though I never get much from him…I still think he’s cute :)
