We will be spending the holiday in Florida this year with Rob's mom and step dad. We all know how Savannah is a "porker". Not only has she outgrown her 3-6 month clothes but she doesn't have any clothes to wear in Florida. At first I was ok with her just wearing onsies but I like her to look cute, so last night I started making her some. I found a few patterns for free on line 2 came out ok and 1 just was a no go. It said for 6-9 months but it wouldn't even fit over her shoulders. So if anyone knows of a baby girl do during summer months I have a really cute shirt, bloomers set. So today I went and bought a pattern and decided I should do 6-9 months and now these ones look hug but she can still wear them.
On Sunday Weazy came over for dinner and to play with the kids. Unfortunately Austin was in no mood. But what was nice for a change Savannah let Weazy hold her without crying. I think she really enjoyed it. If Savannah gets any bigger I am not sure Weazy will be able to hold her!!
Almost done... I need to put the faucet on, the dishwasher door, and Daddy is going to make the counter in the middle a little smaller.
The work in progressIt's a good thing Austin doesn't understand completely about Christmas otherwise I would not be able to post these projects like I do. I just get so excited about them I feel the need to share. I had posted that 2 projects were taking over me. Well the one is done...the table playhouse and the other one is under way and almost done. I am doing most of the work myself, Rob cut the hole for the sink and will be cutting down the middle a little I didn't realize it was so long. I have added a place for him to write his menu, a towel bar on the other side of the sink, there is a stove with nobs and a dishwasher and I am putting storage in the middle once it is cut down. I hope he likes it.

This was a mens shirt made to fit Austin, then added the tie
(he say's he doesn't like it)
I have always loved crafting, I usually go in spurts though. I have officially become addicted searching on the internet everyday for new things to make. I have so much I want to make my head is spinning and I don't know what to do first. Most of everything is for the kids. I am not so sure that the kids will love what I make or be happy that I must try to make everything before I buy it. Today I even had my first trip to second hand shops, not that I am against them or anything. I just like knowing I can get what I came in for without having to go to many different shops. I ended up getting some Christmas gifts for Austin that were on his list.
The finished product if you look hard you can see the tie design. We have plans for this shirt though...keep watching

Yesterday when I was cleaning up the kitchen I noticed we had way to many apples. I had bought some and then Weazy had given us some as well. So I thought Austin and I would make apple sauce he was more into than I thought he would be. It tasted pretty good but Austin still didn't want to eat it. We have video of him but I couldn't get it to upload. Kinda bumbed it was cute.
Saturday was Robs birthday. He didn't get to do much celebrating because I worked and he was on kid duty. Austin couldn't wait to tell him what his surprise was and after Austin told him his present he had to hide it and make Rob find it, he even told him what the card said before he opened it. Rob was pretty excited with the gift cards and money he got as gifts he was able to get a camcorder.
