The weather is warming up and I have begun thinking about the beach. Well, swimming. Okay swim suits. I want to make one. I have never done it before but there are such cute ideas out there I feel as if I gotta jump in. I am gonna say right now that after two babies I am not comfortable showing skin so I am on the look out for a cool tankini or retro one piece... let's see what the interwebs have to say... Here is a good one Perhaps this top with these bottoms Or I could just go and pay for it.... you know like this which I love. Ok maybe buying a first time pattern is the way to go.
There is the plan people. Thank you to the nice people of Buttrick whom I borrowed this picture from. Let's see this summer through!

Pie day

This morning I was craving pie. Oh yes. the most glorious and yummy home made blueberry pie. So what is a girl to do but make it herself. I was convinced, by my loving husband that it should not just be a blueberry pie...but a 3 berry pie! So we got blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries!
Then I dumped in a cup of sugar and 3 Tablespoons of Corn starch and let those babies macerate!
Then I made my favorite Joy of Cooking crust ( I love the one with cream cheese and butter!) And popped the whole mess in the oven at 425 for the first 30 minutes and then 25 at 350. Notice the pan for keeping the juice from setting the oven on fire. I am so smart!
And what do I get???
Dinner! I need some ice cream....

Well it's 2014 where have you been?

I have been meaning to update this. Really I have. But updating is hard when you are working and volunteering, and all that other crazy stuff do. However....I am back and will be back from now on. Promise. And here is a picture to prove my return shall not be short lived!
Yes! That is the same little boy that was so small last time. They years are being very sweet to that little face.

Tu-tu cute

After the great success of our first dance lesson, Melly needed a dancing outfit.
So, we went to the fabric store yesterday and got a lot of tulle.

And with the help of the new kitten, we managed to make a tu-tu that was quite beautiful and just perfect for a little dancer.

Ribbon Dancing

Last night Melly had her first ever dance class. It was a ribbon dancing class and she loved it! Here are some pictures from that class for everyone to enjoy.

I am currently working on a tu-tu and slippers so she can be dressed appropriately next week.

Mr. Meowgi

Please help us welcome our newest family member. Adopted on the 4th of July...

He is a rescue kitty from the SPCA. And he is 13 weeks old.

Swimming lessons

Mr. Ian had his very first swimming lesson yesterday. He had the best time ever! He spent the whole time laughing, smiling, and splashing. The instructors were very impressed with him. Hopefully this eagerness will continue!
