Call Me Suzy Seamstress

For some reason I thought it might be fun to sew Madeline a few new dresses. I kinda have a love/hate relationship with sewing. I love creating things, but sometimes Mr. Singer is not my best friend. I found a cute dress tutorial from a blog I follow for the basics and inspiration. I think they are versatile. She can wear them with or without shirt, can easily be worn as a shirt as she gets taller and I might even remove the straps later and turn them into a skirt. I think they turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself. :)

Weekend Fun

Enjoyed the nice weather before heading to Arlington.

Ate some pudding cake in celebration of Mommy and Uncle Rice's birthdays.

Encouraged by Uncle Rice to put it all over my face.

Took a bath and hung out with my Aunt Ally and Ella. I think I need a small dog now!

Played some piano for my family.

Sweet and Innocent

Don't worry....I am not up to anything. I am just hanging out with Asia. Go ahead and put up my laundry in the other room. I will stay here.

I think they are gone. Woohoo!

Man this is sooo much fun!

I am going to see how much I can get off of this roll.

Maybe I will even wrap myself in it.

Ok I think I got enough for now.

I am going to take it out in the hall and maybe into my room if it will reach.
Uh oh! It is stuck on my arm.

I am pretty proud of myself and I didn't get caught!

I think I will play in it a little more.
Okay I guess it is bath time. The fun is all over.

Besides that roll is gone! hahaha
Good thing we buy toilet paper in bulk!! haha

A Day in the Life of A 16 Month Old

Playing with a noodle and harassing the cat = cheap entertainment

Looking outside and checking things out while interrupting the cat's sunbathing time.

Sleeping in weird positions...not sure how this is possible.

Waking up with this A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E hair!!!

Eating dinner and feeding herself with a fork. (a new accomplishment)

Don't judge us....sometimes you have to "trick" the picky eater into eating fruits and veggies.
She loved her blueberry pancakes and fruit smoothie!

Weekend Visitors

We enjoyed a weekend with my my sister, her hubby and my niece. They drove in Friday evening and stayed with us until Sunday afternoon. They decided to drop in last minute and our house looked like a bomb had gone off, so no one was exempt from cleaning. Not even this little sweetie. ha!

Madeline loves her cousin Megan. As you can tell they enjoyed watching a movie together.
The Malone family picked a good weekend to visit. Mike was able to find a good deal on dirt and brought some home for the backyard. If you read this blog very often you would think we work our
families like dogs....and you would be correct. However this time, they offered to help and we didn't say no! We still have one more load waiting in the backyard, but the backyard is almost ready for grass!! HALLELUJAH!!!

Megan was even sweet enough to help out!

After a hard days work, we planned on taking the girls to the Abilene Zoo. Sadly we arrived right before closing time. Who knew they closed at 5 on the Saturday? Not us! Instead we walked down to the park down from the zoo.
This kid had a B.A.L.L
But for some reason she doesn't like the swings. I guess she is scared of them
Megan on the other hand, enjoyed every minute on the swings....they might even be her favorite thing!

Madeline going down the slides with daddy.

Megan tried out the fire woman pole
Even the adults enjoyed the park.....Chad was pretending to be King of the Fort!!

My little red faced sweet pea

Multi-tasking early on...going through the tunnel and drinking some juice.

All smiles and giggles in the tunnel.

After a long day of playing this little girl was pooped

and in need of a bath!

Megan of course was still F.U.L.L. of energy!!!
