Some sewing projects

I've sewn a few things over the last few months I thought I'd share.

This cute Fox Stuffy for Annie's Birthday

A Pencil Case for Lucy to take to school...she wanted woodland and undersea animals.

This disappearing nine-patch quilt for my sweeter-than-sweet niece.  I especially love the striped binding.

These Russian Nesting purses...geez I love these...I learned to paper piece on this project.

This super cute makeup bag.  The inside is lined with the mint/gold fabric from the tabs.

I can't pick a favorite, I loved them all.

Lucy's 8th Birthday

Lucy turned 8 this year, which is pretty significant in the LDS world.
It means she's old enough to be baptized.
Her day was so special
It was full of the Spirit. Hope. Family. Friends. Love.
It's a day I will never forget, even if Lucy doesn't remember the details I hope she'll remember the love she felt.

We also celebrated with breakfast in bed and a friend party at Pump-It-Up, Corned Beef at Bode's, a BB gun, and a family dinner with the Vos crew.

Lucy and Noah enjoyed another fall season of soccer.

They both had awesome coaches.
We love DACA.

Fair 2015

The kids were all about the rides this year...they humored me through the animal barns and I went alone into the 4-H barn.  We had a busy week that week and couldn't make it on a day with the demo derby, next year.  They had so much fun going on the rides, they saved their money and bought bracelets so they could ride as much as they wanted.  They must have done the obstacle course style house about 50 times.  Noah was so brave to go with Lucy on the Gravitron style ride, I don't know what they call it anymore.  When he got off, ever the optimist, I asked him if he had fun and he enthusiastically said, "I didn't like it!" with a smile on his face.

Our last fishing trip of 2015

Here are some of the pictures from our last family fishing trip of 2015.  It was pretty funny, I kept catching fish, and Tony didn't.  He's the master fisherman.  I smoked him.  I took pictures of all my fish.  He said that's why...I was catching the vain fish who were hoping to end up on Instagram.  Ha...yeah...that's why...

Leslie Science Center

 Some friends invited us to go to the Science Center last week.
It was great!  We saw hawks and owls, turtles, birds and lots of kinds of bugs.
Since we were in Ann Arbor we stopped by the Farmer's Market and the dairy.
Here's the post from the last time I went...I was shocked to see...2007.

Tango liked camping, until night, we tried to put his kennel in the vestibule of our tent.  He didn't like that.  He cried and then barked, which he very rarely does, so he slept in the tent with us...hair and all.
We didn't cook at camp, just brought sandwiches...lame but delicious.
We sang songs and actually slept pretty well.
The highlight for Lucy was breakfast and Noah's favorite thing was having a flashlight.
