Sorry I've been a little MIA lately. I'll sum up the last few months.
All summer long people gave us food they had grown. Luckily, I was kind of "nesting". I made grape juice, grape jelly, apple juice, dehydrated apple chips, canned pears, canned peaches, and canned tomatoes. I attempted to dehydrate potatoes, but it didn't work out. Maybe I'll try again next year. I was going to take a picture of everything to, but I never got around to it. And now all the juice, jelly, and apple chips are gone. :(
Winter has been hard. Our house has become too small for two active little boys, and there isn't much to do outside in single digit weather. We haven't had a lot of snow to play in either.
In January, our sweet baby girl was born. She weighed 8 lbs 10 oz and was 22 inches long. (Although I think they measured inaccurately and she was only 21 1/2 inches long.) (Sorry, my internet is too slow to upload a picture today. Check my facebook page for a picture.)
After baby girl was born, I refashioned a dress into a nursing top by adding part of a tank top underneath. That's all the crafting I have been doing. Well, that's it for me. Are you doing anything fun? And if you really want to see how my life is, check out my other blog: http://faithhopeandcourage.blogspot.com/ Warning: it's a long post.

I tried something new lately and made tie onesies! They are so adorable! My friend A showed me the tutorial from crapi'vemade. P.S. I love that blog name. I think it's hilarious. My onesies didn't turn out perfectly, but it's the thought that counts, right?
So, I can't figure out how to get two pictures on the same line. Here are my two oneises I have made so far, and I love them! Like I said, they aren't perfect. If you want to try making one for yourself go here somewhere. I couldn't find the exact link, but it's on her website somewhere. She has a template and easy to follow instructions. I made the pink one for my friend B, who is expecting a her first baby boy next spring, and the "hunting" type one for my friend L, who just had her second boy! I wish I'd made these for my kids...oh well. If anyone else would like one of these, I would love to make you one! They are a cinch! However, I don't have the money to keep buying onesies! So, if you'd like to send me money for a onesie, or just send me a onesie, I will make you one and mail it back to you! (and any special fabric, that you want for the tie.) Just contact me on facebook messages. See you later!
p.s. I hate that snails and puppy dog tails poem. I think it's dumb.
