Updates and Nesting... Week 2

Quick August Update
Gordon and I celebrated our 5th Anniversary this year!
It was a perfect weekend... We ate dinner at The Roof, walked Temple Square, toured the Conference Center, stayed at the Anniversary Inn and shopped till we dropped in Park City. I'm so grateful to be married to my best friend.

The month of August was $2 Tuesdays at Thanksgiving Point so we took Tydon to the Dinosaur Museum. I think Gordon enjoyed it just as much as Tydon...

It is all taped and textured now...
This was a tricky spot over the closet.
Changing Pad and a matching Wipe Case
Gord's sister-in-law had her baby... can't wait to meet her this weekend.
Laurel requested Pink and Brown and she's a country girl
Matching wipe case
So soft!
This one was for Gord's niece who is due next week!
This is her diaper bag...
It's always more fun to have a matching wipe case ;)
The elastic on the back comes in handy when the babes
don't need a changing pad anymore
Nesting Update
Last week was pretty successful.
I washed all the 0-3 month clothes...
Thanks for the tip Sha
Completed the burp cloths...
It always feels good to use up some scraps ;)
Nesting... Week 2
Gord is almost done with his part of the bassinet
now it's my turn to get busy!
This is our inspiration...
We wanted something that we could break down and store since you only use the bassinet for a month or two, but we weren't about to pay $400 for it!
Once that's done-
I'm hoping to make a few of these...
Appliqued Tie Onesie Tutorial
Still trying to decide on this...
Pretty excited to mark this off my list :)

We are headed to Idaho for the long weekend then Tydon and I get to stay and play for the week!! Can't wait to see the fam ;)


Nesting... Week 1

I really have some catching up to do...
We had a busy weekend with family here. (Pics to come later)
Gordon and I made a trip to Home Depot and I'm soooo excited for him to get started on a few projects.
We went to get materials for the bassinet and left with materials for a changing table and a nightstand for Tydon too!
He's going to be busy...

While he's out in the garage making a mess, I'll be inside making a mess of my own...

Nesting Projects Week 1...
*Go through Tydon's baby stuff
*Make a list of what items we need
*Start washing
*Clean as I go

Sewing Project
I just can't decide which ones to make... maybe a couple of each :)

A week in Idaho...

Last week Tydon and I went to Idaho for the week.
We haven't been that busy in a long time!!

Of course we went to the mall to visit my grandma.
I took my cousin school clothes shopping and helped my brother get finished up too.
I've decided it might be kinda fun to work retail again :)

Tuesday night we had a pizza party at Great's house and
played games.
Wednesday morning we got up and went to the Greenbelt and fed the ducks.
One of my favorite childhood memories...
There were tons of Geese...
Wednesday afternoon we went out to my parents house.
While I cut hair Tydon played outside with Grandma.
Tydon LOVED swinging around on the horse walker. I use to do that when I was a kid.

My dad got a new kitty to hunt mice... he wouldn't leave Tydon alone.
Then we were off to Mud Lake.
Tydon loves spending time with his cousins.
I quilted for 2 days straight!!
They are at the quilter so I'll post pics in a few weeks...
I'm so excited :)

Gord's brother is building a house so we went to take a peek.
Friday night we had a girl's night... no pics, but it was fun!

Saturday morning we got up early and drove back to UT for
Braxton's wakeboard tournament.
Tydon kept pulling the footrest up and saying "ya...ya..." like he was riding a horse.
Braxton took 1st

He won another trip to Florida!! Hope I get to go again.
So proud of him ;)

Sunday was Kirk's birthday.
We celebrated at our house... yummy dinner and blueberry pie!
What a week!
Feels good to be home, but now I've got lots of catching up to do.

Great friends...

I have some of the best friends!
Some of my girl friends from West Jordan came to Lehi to celebrate my birthday.
We took the kids to the park and then went back to our house for a yummy lunch
and strawberry shortcake.

The kids had lots of fun.
Thanks girls for making me feel special!
