Thanksgiving 2013

We spent Thanksgiving at Gege and Grandaddy's this year.  It was wonderful to spend time with the newly expanded Pinkerton family! 

Ethan and Eric look so much alike!

Our family shot!

The kids had a great time with their cousins.  Always so much fun to spend time with family!

September so far

My computer is still not working, so Instagram pictures from my phone are all I can do for now. Boo hoo!

Soccer season is here!  The boys are on the same team again and this time they have even more friends on their team.  They are loving it and are playing better than ever.

My parents went to Lauren's school for Grandparents' Day.  Isn't this card she made them so cute?

 Introducing Blaze!  When the terrarium in this glass vase got spilled, I re-purposed it into a home for a new fish.  The kids were very excited to get a Beta and I like having him keep me company while I wash dishes.

September Market Days was hot!  It's always fun, but we are really looking forward to cooler weather!

If you know me, you know I love roadrunners! 

 I was so excited to see one in my backyard!  The kids were excited too!

My new obsession. 

Lauren and Madi had fun at the beauty salon. 

So love my baby girl. 


Kirby is so studious in her old age. 

Austin's old tablet bit the dust so Eric bought him another one. He's a sucker for Austin. 

Love Jack Allen's and love my neighbors!

Lauren's fashion show

I've been saving fabric to make Lauren dresses for a long time. With my job and busy family schedule, I knew I would never get around to making them myself. I asked our sweet neighbor at Market Days to sew them up for Lauren and she did a great job!

I sure love this little girl. She is so much fun!

Dear Blog,

I miss you. Hope to spend more time with you soon.

I finally got brave enough to cut up all my favorite Anna Maria fabrics.  I LOVE how this quilt turned out!  It's a small lap quilt, but the perfect size for me to cover up with on the couch.  It was relatively easy to make and a quilt as you go pattern.

The kids like it too!

I made this quilt a few months ago when Austin's 1st grade teacher was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Erica made a quilt like this one for Grace's teacher last year and loaned me all the pens and muslin to whip this up.  I made it in one week so Austin's teacher would have it with her for her first chemo treatment.

She loved it!  I hope it gave her a little comfort knowing how loved and appreciated she is!
