My Baby Bump

Today I'm officially 24 weeks pregnant.
I made it past the halfway mark!
I'm feeling great and so excited about getting started on the nursery!

I've got some more searching to do for the perfect fabric for the crib bedding and I'm hoping to find it before my boys are out of school for the summer. Having to take 3 kiddos to the fabric store is not ideal for me and I'm sure they're bored out of their minds too.
Whenever my boys see Hobby Lobby they say, "Not Hobby Lobby AGAIN... please mom."

So, I've shared the picture of my baby bump now b/c I'm not so sure I'll be willing to post pictures come summer time when I won't be able to see my feet anymore. :)

I just praise God that things are going so smoothly and this baby boy is healthy and growing stronger everyday. Can't wait to meet him in August!

My couch is now complete

The two pillows on the ends are the pillows that came with the couch when we bought it about 8 years ago. I've had the fabric for the other pillows for months and months but when I got pregnant I just didn't have the energy to sew. However, there's nothing like having guests over to your home that motivates you more to tie up some loose ends.

So, along with the sewing that I did for Emelia's party I also finished up the pillows that I've been wanting to add to the comfy sofa.

My Baby Turns 3

She begged for an Ariel cake forever.. so a family friend who bakes cakes on the side made her this Ariel cake and she LOVED it!

We decorated cookies and they were the party favors.. well the ones that weren't eaten up as soon as they were decorated. I made crowns, flowers and princess shoes for the girls to decorate and I made cars, baseballs and footballs for the boys to decorate.

These are the aprons that the kids wore while decorating cookies.. I made them with their initial and they were able to take them home as party favors as well.

Having some fun decorating cookies!

Finally getting to open her presents!

One of her favorite gifts.. a pair of princess skates that she had to put on immediately.

This is her "embarrassed" face... she was a little embarrassed as we all sang Happy Birthday to her.

Blowing out the 3 candles on her Ariel cake.
She had a wonderful time with her family and friends.
