What happened to July and especially August?! I thought it hadn't been that long since I posted. But it's been almost a month!
We finally had the baby shower. I got so busy that I didn't get to make everything I wanted for little Alex, so more gifts to come for him. I did get some done. But in my rush to get everything done, I forgot to take pictures of my completed work. :( I made some more chew blankets and I got to try a new baby gift I found. I made this super cute diaper changing pad. Super easy and my new machine made sewing it a dream. On my old one something that thick would have gone no where. But I was able to fly through it.
I forgot to post about Holly's big birthday gift. Holly turned 11 July 19. And the week before she was visiting my brother-in-law's family for a week. While she was gone we did a massive redo of her room. We redecorated, reorganized, hauled out a TON of trash, and turned her room into a more mature, fun, and hopefully easier to keep clean room.

Before:After:The pink does not photograph well. It is bright lighter pink. With a bit of encouragement she has added more of her own touch with posters on the wall. Obviously in the before she never was into hanging posters. She bought them, but just never got around to putting them up. I think the room looks fabulous and fits her personality well. I give myself a big pat on the back. :)
And this Monday was the start of school. Holly is in 6th grade making this her last year in intermediate. And Haylee is in 8th making it her last year in Junior High. AAAAHH! Where did my little girls go?!Obviously this year Haylee decided posing for first day of school pictures was more fun! LOL!

And a Happy Birthday today to my brother-in-law! Love you so much Chris!!
