Neglected :(

My poor blog!!! I have been so horrible at keeping this thing up to date. I guess that will be a little goal for the New Year- blog more often!!
I have been playing with my yarn a ton lately and made some darling little booties for girls!
Once Upon a Dream -- Posh, Posy, Plum and Pink

I finally came up with matching booties for my Bow Hats. Check them out! I am still hunting for more ribbon and cotton colors to match all of them. I love the look of them and how the little toe curls up a bit. SO cute! I've got some boy ones coming too.

I hope you all have a lovely day!

Halloween Bits

Thought I would share some pictures from Halloween.... I took a bunch :) Ryker has been dressing up in different costumes all month so it was fun to finally go out for Halloween. Ryker was a pirate, or as he calls it par-rat. West was the cutest little chicken ever! I took Ryk around the neighborhood while Warren stayed home with the baby and passed out candy. Ryk got a ton of candy for us to eat.. ha! He keeps seeing me getting into it and he says "Hey that's mine!!" Anyway here are the pictures.......

Hope everyone had a spooky, fun Halloween. I have some sweet little pretties to show tomorrow if I get the time :)

Hello Finally!

Ahhh!! My goodness life is busy! I don't even know where to start.
We just moved into a new house about a month ago and I love it!! We have so much more room here then at our old place... on the downside there is more cleaning to get done :(

The mess... now this space is totally bare! Any ideas??

Ryker started Preschool. He goes twice a week and always brings home cute little projects to cover the fridge with. He loves it and so do I. School wears him out and he takes a nice long nap when he gets back home.

West is almost 3 months old ALREADY!! I can't believe how fast my newborn grew up! He weighs 13.5 pounds now. I think he is super strong. He always wants to stand and look around. It is super easy to get him to smile. He talks a lot and is starting to giggle. He must think I am pretty because he always wants me in his sight... that's what I tell Warren ha. He is so stinkin cute I need to get a video of him on here!

I went hunting for the my first time. I don't know if you can call sitting in the truck with the boys while Warren tried to hunt "hunting" but I spent like 10 hour doing it. He eventually killed Bambie's mommy the next day without me so now I get to try deer meat for the first time. I hope I like it!

I have been crocheting up a storm when I get the time. I am so ready to do another giveaway so stop by tomorrow and I will have a hat up for grabs!!

Quicky :)

Just thought I would post some baby deliciousness real quick… Ryker is gonna wake up from his nap any time now and I promised that he could play on when he woke up :) He is actually really good at the computer, I think it’s cute.
We are all doing perfect. West is getting huge already! He is no longer a newborn; I think he just wants to grow up already. This kiddo is strong. He hasn’t needed support holding up his head for a while now and he loves to stand! I feel so bad because he looks so bored. I think he might be starting to smile for real but I still can’t tell for certain.

I better get somethings done around here! Have a good night :)

My three year old is toooo cute!!

This week he has been saying the silliest things!
During his prayers- "Thank you for my family. Thank you for Jesus. Thank you for Spider-Man.
When it rained the other day- I'm gonna take my Transformers Cinderella (umbrella).
While I was nursing West- Baby West gonna eat your booby?!
A while ago he threw a blanket over his head and said "Look Mom, I'm Jesus!"

Ha ha, I love my little man! Hope those made you smile :)

Today I am opening up my Etsy shop again :) I am totally excited!! My little West has modeled a few things for the shop......

I also have a few more super cute hats to share, I am just waiting for my professional pictures of them. The flower hat below is one of those. My sweet niece tested this hat for me a couple months ago. This hat is awesome. It is made with white cotton yarn and features a yellow button attached to the hat that the owner can switch out different flowers with... FUN!!

Finally, I think it is about time I did a free GIVEAWAY. I will be giving away this hat (you choose size) with three flowers (pink, celery and brown). Just leave me a comment on this post about yourself or a hat you'd like to see in the shop or who you want to win this cutie for. You have until Monday night to enter and I will randomly pick a winner on Tuesday! Easy enough right :) Good luck!

Wow, I didn't mean for it to take so long to blog again! Hubby has been on vacation for 12 days so we have been out and about :) He just left for work so I have some free time to post some new pics of the family and what we have been up too.

Warren taught Ryker how to ride his little bike! He is doing so good.. I am proud of both my boys! LOTS of time and patience!!
West is growing fast! He gained over a pound and now weighs 8 p0unds 6 ounces! We are starting to see him want to be held more. It's funny he will get fussy when he is sitting alone but the second you pick him up he is fine! I can't believe he has figured that out so fast! Ha ha! He also loves to pee on his daddy almost every time he changes him.

Jordan had to go back to Colorado :( Now I am back to being the only girl in a house of 3 boys... not fair!! I will miss staying up late watching Hannah Montana and all the other Disney shows with her!

Have a good night :)

Happy first anniversary to me and my lover ;)
It has been one crazy rollercoaster of a year since we said our "I do's" and I am looking forward to many more together.

XOXO love you hunky!

The Birth Story

Little West is one week old today! His birthday was AMAZING, I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect delivery. I thought I would share a bit about it… I am very proud of myself :)

At about 1 pm we headed to the hospital so I could get some medication started before the baby came. We sat around in the hospital room for a while… I didn’t have any contractions yet so we were just relaxing, watching TV and waiting. At 5 pm my doctor came and broke my water to get things started and boy did things start! I think it only took about a half hour and contractions were coming and getting closer and stronger every time. I had planned to go drug free but had no idea what I was in for. With my first baby I had an epidural and felt nothing, this time was totally different! Things happened so fast I don’t even think I would have had time to ask for an epidural. I didn’t even have time to pull my hair back—see pictures from my first post about West, I was a mess! My hubby was awesome, he sat by my side the whole time, held my hand and counted me through each contraction (I never want to hear him count to 4 again ha ha!) My doctors and nurses were great as well; they were really laid back and just waited on me. They didn’t even make me put my legs up in those metal things!! Anyway at 7:35 or so I felt that crazy urge to push and less then 10 minutes later I heard Warren say “It’s a boy!” We didn’t even have time to pull out the camera or recorder but I am glad and lucky things went so fast :) After all that craziness we ended up with our perfect little West. The whole pregnancy and birth thing is incredible and I am so blessed to have experienced it twice now!

Here are a few more pictures from the hospital…

I have the cutest new pictures of him too, can't wait to share later. I have to go feed the little dude right now!! Have a good night!

July 14

Wow... I have been so busy... and lazy :)
The baby is due in 11 days!! We are so excited. I think we are ready, I just have a few more things to finish up before he or she comes. I still need to make a hospital hat for it.. something special just for our baby ;)

We went camping the other day. We just got a new four wheeler so we had to take that and test it out! I road on it and tried to shake this kiddo out but I didn't even get a contraction!! My hubby was jumping of cliffs , water skiing and tubing and poor me just sat and got sunburned :( It was kind of nice being prego.. it gave me an excuse to get out of jumping off that cliff--

Check out that belly :) I am praying that this baby is little but now I am getting scared!! I will have to post some more pictures of the baby bump later on. I got a few cute shots the other day that I want to share.
As for the Etsy shop, I am keeping it open for now... I just love making hats for babies!! I promise I will get to the free giveaway soon, probably after the baby is born. I have a few new hats coming out too and I am just waiting for my professional pictures of them before I get them listed. I will definitely be giving one away on this blog ASAP!!
Have a great day everyone!!
