Happy Birthday to My Baby!

Happy Birthday to my sweet little Chase. I can't believe you are 2!  We celebrated a few days early this year at Nana and Poppy's house and we had so much fun!  We can't wait to Grandma and Papa to come home so we can celebrate with them too!

You used to be this little!

Now you have grown so big I can hardly believe my eyes.  You like to play with you toys.

You like to open presents (when you are in the right mood).

You love your Mom and Dad.

You love your Nana and Poppy.

You love your aunties too!

You also LOVE cake!  Especially this one because Aunt Boppy made it for you!

And you really know how to bust a move!

My Little Guy Lately

I just thought I would post a few pictures that I have recently taken of Chase. I can't believe that he is going to be 2 in November! He is learning to much! He can already:

*Count to 20 (with a little help)
*Say all his alphabet letters and recognize every letter when pointed to.
*Link 3-4 words together to make sentences that we can understand.
*Sing lots of songs! (I think he's going to love music when he gets bigger).
*Brush his own teeth (with a little help sometimes)

His Favorites (at the moment):
*Show- Yo Gabba Gabba
*Food- Banana & Mac n' Cheese
*Stuffed animal- Monkey
*Toy- Balls (Any shape and size) - He likes to throw things... especially things he isn't supposed to throw.

He is such a smart boy! I love him more and more each day. We have been truly blessed :)

Some New Crafts!

I have been working on a few projects lately while the kiddos are napping :)

These are reusable, washable snack bags.

They have waterproof nylon on the inside for easy cleaning.

This is my "On the Go Organizer." It has pockets for everything!

Here is a pleated shoulder bag I just finished yesterday.

Klesick Family Farm

Last Tuesday as I was driving down my street I saw a van drive by with the name "Klesick Family Farm" on the side of it. I thought, "what a great idea to have fresh produce delivered to your doorstep!" I decided to inquire about it and went to their website, and I was so impressed with their different options to choose from! They have everything; fresh organic fruits and vegetables, bakery goods, dairy, meat and a lot of other cool grocery items. My favorite thing is their "box of good" which is a box of fresh produce that they deliver to your doorstep. You can even have a box sent to your local food bank. I chose their "small" box which is for a family of 2-4 people. It was full of so many delicious things that are in season right now.

I have to say that I was so impressed by the amount of food and the quality. Here is what I received for $24:

2 plums
3 peaches
3 starkrimson pears
an avocado
a lime
a head of garlic
a large bunch of carrots
2 large heads of broccoli
green onions
a bunch of tomatoes
and a loaf of sourdough wheat artisan bread (which they included as a thank you for trying their products)

It all came in a cardboard box that they reuse, so you just leave it on your doorstep on the next delivery day and they pick it up! Everything that I have tried so far has been delicious! I highly recommend trying them out. I will be ordering again soon!

Naptime is Craft Time

I have been having way too much fun crafting lately. As soon as the kiddos are down for a nap a break out a new project to work on. I have been making accessories of all kinds: necklaces, earrings, hair pins and purses. Check out my shop at and see if there is anything you like for yourself of a friend! You can click on my link at the right side of my page. My goal is to have a booth at the Edmonds Farmer's Market next summer to try and sell some of my crafts. Here is a headband I just made yesterday :) I used a polyester/nylon mix fabric to create the flower, and I sewed it securely to the elastic headband. Sorry for the bad picture quality, but you get the right idea :)
