Family Update Yo!

Well, I haven't made a post in quite a long time. But, recently I decided I needed a hobby, something that would make having "me time" more possible. So, I decided I'd like to start sewing, and making things like hair clips I can sell at work. I made about 40 clips (flowers, christmas ones, and other cute stuff) for my wonderful sister in law to sell at the Christmas boutique that Wendover, NV has every year. Hopefully some of them will sell! I have yet to sew. Aside from the fact that I don't own a sewing machine, I also don't really know how to sew! I have been looking at a few blogs with tutorials on them, and it seems like sewing is something I can do. Since my dear sweet Chloe was born, I've really found it difficult to step away from being mom and wife and just be a young happy fun person! So, I think having this new hobby will help me find some time to myself!

My sweet husband Drew has been out of town a lot recently working hard for us. He was in Oregon and Northern California this week, and had the opportunity to go through Crescent City. He lived there for a bit when he was younger and now is his dream destination for our family. He stopped by the old house and explored the yard a bit. He is on his way home, and should be home tomorrow!

Sam. What a character! He is starting to talk A LOT! He is putting words in to phrases instead of just saying single words. example: "lilah no!" "juice baba" (lilah is my sister's new puppy). He is going to blessed nursery at church, and usually loves it. It makes me happy to see him interacting with other kids. He still is learning to share, and hopefully will grasp that concept sooner rather than later! He loves his sister, but still is a little rough. Boys will be boys!

My Chloe girl is growing so fast! Babies don't stay babies long. She is so fun now. She is the happiest baby, always smiling! My mom says she's the spitting image of me as a babe. I must have been SO cute! :) I'm confident she'll be rolling over soon. She gets over to her side, but not over. It's exciting, but once she starts moving she'll require much more supervision!

And Sariah. I'm so thankful to have her living with us :) I can't imagine our lives right now without her. She is the biggest help with the kids and the house, and it's great to have one of my best friends around so much!

I am looking forward to the holidays! Thanksgiving is coming, and we get to have two :) So with fun times on the way, hopefully I'll find the time to share them here! thanks for reading about our little family! If you having and sewing ideas or tips please feel free to share!!
