White Christmas

Who would have thought we would be having a white Christmas in Florida. That's right, although I'm not exactly talking about snow. Vivian is getting her first tooth. At this moment there is just a speck, or a flurry, to stay with my weather analogy, which is predicted to be a blizzard of swollen gums and crankiness until it makes it full arrival probably just in time for Santa.

Santa is Coming to Town

I went WAY beyond my weekly update deadline. Yes I try to do something blog worthy at least weekly, don't want post too much about my excitement daily, because that pretty much consist of deep conversations about where poopie goes and if anyone needs to go pee pee at any given time. Exhilarating.

Our house is official in the holiday spirit! Tree up- check, House lights up- check, cookies baked- check, Christmas cookies eaten 2 weeks before Dec 25th- check and check..

Ava is grasping the concept of Christmas. She loves all the decorations and lights and if you ask her want kind of present she wants Santa to bring her the answer is simple- "Big". I'm sure that will one day be replace with "Shinny", just like Mommy. Here that Santa!!

Long time No Project

I have been sewing here and there, nothing too exciting to share on the blog. Last week I did sew some baby gifts but since they have not been recieved and since I didn't take pictures of them before I sent them off, I can't really post them. Maybe later, if the parents send me some pictures. Which they better since they are awesome gifts!

Here is a little dress I made for Ava. I have enough fabric to make a matching one for Vivian. I have high hopes of getting a picture of them together in the matching dresses, which might be more work than actually making the dresses.

I made this dress in ONE day. I am getting faster, or parenting less. It's no secret, looking good comes with a price.
