Okay!! So, it's been FOREVER since I last posted. But, all for a few good reasons :) First off, we spent the weekend with Keith's family, which was wonderful as usual! We spent most of Saturday outside, and Rowan loved to be able to run on their huge yard. He also spent a lot of time in the swing that they bought for him. And of course, he visited the cows at least 3 times! Funny guy. About 1/2 hour before we even got to their house, he started mooing!! He was so excited he hardly ate any supper.
The girls and I also recorded a few songs, which I will post once I have them all formatted and stuff. It was a lot of fun! We had some good laughs too, listening to what we had done!
Our yummy barbecue/picnic on Saturday.
Rowan had tons of fun playing guitar with auntie Alyssa. She did the chords, and he strummed for her!
We came home on Sunday night, and first thing Monday morning, Liane, Heather and I went to the fabric store, since everything is 50% off this week! Heather bought all the flannel for her diapers, plus some extra for a blanket and some burp cloths, for only $80! Impressive. So, now can you guess what I've been up to for the past three days? Here's a clue:
Cutting flannel for hours on end!! We spent all three afternoons, plus one evening working on this, tracing and cutting. It was pretty fun working together. I can see why people charge so much for their diapers though, it's a lot of time put in! We haven't even started sewing yet! She's making 40 diapers by the way. Should be plenty!
In other news, I finally went to get my hair cut today. I've been putting it off for far too long! My hair is really soft and fine, resulting in NO body whatsoever when it gets longer! Nothing could help me but a good cut! Thanks to my friend Jaclyn who works at a local Salon, for cutting my hair, and then offering to do Rowan's for free!! It's such a blessing to have friends with talent! Now we're both so cute!
I was trying to take some not-so-serious pictues to send to Keith at work.
Hmmm.... I also bought some Crocs the other day, which I still need to show to Keith before I decide whether I'm keeping them or not! They are the Mary Jane style, very cute. I bought black, so I can wear them with almost anything, including to Church, since most Sundays now I have to take off my shoes or sandals because my feet hurt and are swelling! The Crocs should be much better for that.
Yup, those are sock lines on my ankles!! You can tell that my feet are starting to swell again.
Rowan has been tons of fun lately, learning lots of new words, and he now knows the colour blue! I have no idea where he picked that up, but he just started saying it the other day, and he really does know what blue is! He's also been 'singing' a lot lately, at the top of his lungs!! It's so funny and cute and annoying all at the same time! Yesterday he was trying to sing along to American Idol, so I wasn't too impressed, but it WAS cute!!
This is turing out to be a really long post, and there are more things that I could post about, but we'll save that for another day!!
