still here.

I always told myself I would only blog when I wanted to and not because I felt I had to. I would hate for it to feel like a job. So I am sorry that I have not been blogging as much as I used to. Erin and I were just talking about all of this the other day and then Megan said it perfectly yesterday on her blog. Dito to everything that she said. I have been sewing though and being busy with Penelope's birthday and Thanksgiving.

2 years old!


It was Minnie themed since that seems to be her most favorite lately. Luckily enough it was an easy cake for me to make since I try to make the girls their cake every year.

Then Thanksgiving was here and we went to my in laws for the day. Were I neglected to take any pictures. Terrible. I am getting lazy for sure. Oh wait I did take a picture of one of the pies I made on my lap on the way to my in laws. I do love homemade pies way better then store bought. Apparently all I was thinking about was Pumpkin Pie that day, can you blame me?

I sewed a couple of the great gathered clutches for a friend. One for an auction to benefit her mommy group and the other for her. Where I finally achieved perfect zipper ends thanks to this diagram. Don't sew on the ends at all!!! Who knew.

I had a good hair day. I had to take a picture to document.

I went to Disneyland to meet Jen from Mjandco! I was so excited to meet her in person finally after knowing eachother forever on flickr. We did a little fabric swap she was awesome to offer me a piece of the Mermaid fabric that I am collecting to make Gweniveve a quilt. The kids got along great and even though it was crowded we had a great time.

I have been sewing alot of the small things I have on my list since I wanted to get them out of the way before my parents get here ( on Monday!) so that my Mom and I can sew all the big things on my list. I will be back tomorrow with that post.

I hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving and you are all hanging out with your family and having fun. I love to play games and lucky for me I have a husband who plays them with me.

Ahhh, Disneyland. How fun. We spent 4 days there this summer with our kids for the first time and it was awesome! Crazy packed but we had a great time.

Sequence is a favorite game here too. :)

Happy birthday to your little one. My oldest son turns 10 today!! Eek. :)

It looks like you've been having loads of fun! I'm a tad worried Penelope's about to blow away with those balloons though, has she watched 'Up'...? ;o)
