Weekend Projects and Updates...

This weekend I pulled together a couple of toddler outfits for my nephew's school dinner auction fund raiser. For the past few years I've made items to use in the silent auction. This year, this is what I came up with.

Boy Outfit...

Completed ensemble.

Close up of jeep on shirt - I will probably make a shirt like this for T Rex - he loves the wheels! But I used up all the material so no matching pants, but jeans will probably be cute, too!

Girl Outfit...

Completed ensemble.

In other news, there's really not much else to report.

T Rex Dad has been working long hours rolling out new work projects. T Rex's asthma is back in remission after a week of long neb breathing treatments. T Rex Baby Girl is very active performing daily acrobatics during my resting hours. And I have been busy with school - last week I submited four papers. (I knew there would be a lot of reading and writing in grad school - it's one thing thinking it, but a whole other thing actually writing all those papers and reading those articles and chapters!)

But's it's all great!

Life really is wonderful!

Four papers!! That's a ton. Glad that all is well. The outfits are adorable. You always amaze me with your creativity.

I don't know how you find the time. The outfits are really cute. Do you buy patters or have you made your own patter? I really want to try to make Thomas some cloths but I just can't decide where to start.

ADORABLE! I must admit, I am a little jealous that you get to dress a baby girl now!

So cute those little outfits. I'd be interested to know how much each cost you to make.

I really didn't know what a nurse practitioner did until I was watching something. Is a nurse practitioner someone who has more education than a registered nurse?

So glad to hear that life is good:)
