Goody Two Shoes

I've been in the market for some new shoes for Kristen that she will actually keep on, and so far all that works are the good ol' Robeez leather shoes that she's been wearing for months. She has almost grown out of the few pairs she has so I decided to try to take my shoe making ability to the next level. I checked out this awesome place called "Sas Fabric by the Pound" with my
Mother-in-law today...thanks to the suggestion of a good friend (thanks Amanda Glenn!) They had these awesome Leather scraps in some really good colors. So here is the end result. I think they turned out pretty good! I couldn't get Kristen to model them because she was having a tantrum!

Fun with the webcam

We got a new laptop this week and discovered tonight that the webcam is pretty entertaining! Good Times!

Tiny Dancers

Lauren decided to break out the tutu's and leotards tonight...then the dancing commenced!!
As you can see in one of the pictures and the video, Kristen would rather pick at the lint between her toes than dance.

So I was over at the talented Taya's the other day and she was explaining how to make some pajama pants a really easy way. So I took what I remembered and went to work. It was super simple and even appliqued some of the scrap fabric on to a couple of the girls shirts to match the pants. I also realized as I was almost done with the pants that I didn't have enough elastic for even one pair let alone two and it was Sunday night. So being the impatient girl I am I improvised and just sewed a small strip of elastic on either side of the bottoms and it worked! I was so proud of myself!
Here is the end result. They are by no means professional but I was proud to have whipped them out in about an hour!
Thanks for the wonderful ideas Taya, soon my girls will have more pajamas than they can use!

The Color Code

I took a personality test tonight to see what "color" I am. I think the results turned out pretty right on. I'd like to see if other people think it fits me!

Congratulations, you are a white.

white: 46.09%
yellow: ??? %
blue: ??? %
red: ??? %

Whites (Motive: Peace)

whites are motivated by Peace. They seek independence and require kindness. They resist confrontation at all costs. To them, feeling good is more important than being good. They are typically quiet by nature, process things very deeply and objectively with great clarity. Of all the colors, whites are the best listeners. They respect people who are direct but recoil from perceived hostility or verbal battle. Whites need their "alone time" and refuse to be controlled by others. whites want to do things their own way and in their own time. They ask little of others and resent others demanding much of them. whites are much stronger than people think, but are not often seen for their strength because they don't easily reveal their feelings. whites are even-tempered, diplomatic, and the voice of reason; but can also be indecisive, unexpressive, and silently stubborn. When you deal with a WHITE, be kind, accept and support their individuality, and look for non-verbal clues to understand their feelings.

Now go and see what color you are here!
