Emmie’s New Coat

So I wish I was kidding, but I literally started this project January of 2014. (as my instagram account can attest) Thankfully I made it too big for Emmie, because it still fits her well, especially considering how much she has grown this year. I got it 80% done, but then ran out of steam…

I Can Be Denied Nothing!!!!!

  Today is my 35th birthday, which is pretty exciting 🙂 I like getting older, I sort of feel like I’ve earned it and am becoming more of a real grownup. Since it’s my 35th, I decided that I would make a list of 35 facts about myself, that maybe everyone doesn’t know, so if…

Middle School Dance

Emmie had a middle school dance to go to tonight, and it was semi formal in its dress code, so I got lucky and got to make her a new dress! (the pictures were taken at night in our apartment building lobby, so they aren’t great) Emmie was really excited about this fabric, (we got…

2014’s Resolutions, How Did I Do?

    Hello! Are you so excited about it being 2015? I am looking forward to so much of what’s ahead, but before I get too far ahead of myself, I thought I would look back at my resolutions from last year and give myself a grade for how well I did! Since there is…

Back to School

I find parenting such an interesting mix of penalty/pity, love/loss. The kids went back to school today, after a year at home with me; we had lots of reasons for home schooling them for the year, and lots of reasons went into the decision to send them back this year (by in large Isaac asking…

Emmie’s 11th Birthday {flashback post}

The other day I shared a post about Emmie’s small and understated 12th birthday party, and today I am back with her 11th birthday (I am so behind on posts….) Emmie decided that she wanted to have a circus theme for her party, and we tried really hard to thread the theme throughout within the…

Emmie Turns 12!

My baby girl is not so baby anymore, she turned 12 on the 11th of June! We went to Japan a few days before to celebrate her birthday as a family, but she still wanted to have a little get together with friends to mark the occasion. We did a huge party for her 11th,…
