Weekend in Review

Absolutely Beautiful Weekend!

On Saturday, we went to my cousin Mandy's wedding. Her ceremony was outside at Candlewood overlooking the lake. This is the gated community we lived in before we built our current house. As we drove past our old home, we asked Grace is she remember living there. She didn't! It's sad to think that the home she was born in and lived for the first 3 years of her life...she'll never remember. It was a cute little starter home, but I'm so glad that we made the leap of faith and sold when we did. We got out right before the housing market started to get really bad. As we drove around Candlewood on our way to the lodge we were amazed at how many houses are for sale...the same houses that were for sale when we moved out 15 months ago! We're in love with our current home and so thankful for it!!

The weather was absolutely beautiful! Here is Gauge being happy before the goldfish crackers ran out half way through the ceremony...and before he let out a really loud burp during a very quiet moment *grin*

Smile :-)

My new bloggie friend Shelly made an adorable sling for herself and told me that she would make me one too! How awesome is she! She's on vacation right now and won't be able to get to it for a few weeks. So... I thought...."what can I do in the mean time?" Some where in the dark recesses of my mind, I remember seeing somewhere that you can make a baby sling out of a bed sheet. So, I did what I always do when I need to find the answer to something. I Googled it of course! I found a video on YouTube of a lady demonstrating how to do it. And here is my finished product.

With sling in place and beautiful fall temperatures outside, we decided to take the kids on a hike at the State Park.

Time out for mommy to rest and a quick family pic. Grace has a worried look on her face, because she is sitting on moss :)


We found our way out of the woods! Let's go up town and get some ice-cream!!

  4. Wow! What a great idea for a sling! Did Gauge just LOVE it? Mylo LOVES to be "worn"...unfortunately I just can't do it right now. I'm so glad Shelly's making you a pouch sling. She is THE BEST. She's SO talented and creative. I've been sewing up a storm myself...those pouch slings are SO easy to make, and are a wonderful shower gift! Half my friends are pregnant right now, so they're all getting one! :)
