It's the 80's...

I found some t-shirts I wore when I was a baby, so you know I had to try them on Piper. Can you say 80's anyone?
This one was from my Uncle Max and Aunt Adonna Barker in Idaho.
Do you remember this one Dad? Hard to believe I once could fit in these.

Las Vegas here she comes.



All about Piper...

Pretty Piper in the cute dress Aunt Adonna got for her, she looks very good in blue.
When Piper was a week old we had her picture taken at a studio in town, the photographer was doing a new window display and asked to use Piper's picture. I just remembered to take a picture of the display when I was in town, it is the one on the far left. She has grown so much since them. If you click on it you might be able to see it better, the hands in the picture are mine and my moms.
Snug as a bug in a rug. Miss Piper all ready to go night, night.


Taking a nap with daddy before he went back to work. She really
loves her Daddy.

Three months old and so in Love...

There is just something about a Pink Fuzzy Bunny that you got to love. Well Piper sure does love her bunny. Here are a few pictures of her loving her bunny, it is hard to think a three month old could become so attached to something. Most of the time if she is fussy you can hold bunny up to her face and she will calm down. Silly bunny for a silly little girl.

Kids, Kids, Kids...

Last night I took Piper to the circus with Shawna and her kids. This is the best picture I got of Payton riding the elephant, hard to get a good one with a sleeping baby in your arms and people getting in front of you. We had a great time. Payton said it was "Awesome"!
I finally got all three kids to sit still long enough to get a picture of them. Payton is 31/2, Piper is 3 months and Keegan is 11 months. Can you say "Busy", well that is what I am two days a week.
Miss Piper enjoying her Bumbo seat, these seats are great. Check out her "muscles."

Message from Piper...

You been farm'n long?

Piper got her first tractor ride on Thursday. She thought it was great can't you tell. The floor makes a great place to take a little nap.
Trying out the drivers seat while Dad checks the planter. I think it's pretty comfy.
Piper liked riding in the tractor so much she wanted to go out again on Friday. This time she got to "help" Dad drive, well ok, maybe she just chewed on her fingers.
Just me & my Dad. Thanks Dad for letting me farm with you, I will be helping you before you know it.

Our busy life...

Busy, Busy dreadfully busy... Well that has been the story of our lives lately. So here are just a few photo's of the last week. Miss Piper is her new orange dress, she is such a cutie (well her Mommy sure thanks so.)
She just loves this pink bunny and had become very attached to it lately. Piper is changing so fast, she is now trying to grab things and put them in her mouth. But hands are still her favorite.
I don't have a double chin, do I?
Happy belated Birthday to my wonderful husband. Monday night we celebrated Eric's 25th birthday. Love you Honey, hope to celebrate many more with you.
Saturday we went to the Quad Cities for Jordynn Dodd's 1st birthday. We had a great time being with family and friends.
Well that's just a little of what has been happening around here. Stay tuned for more later.

Piper's 1st Easter


Sorry it had been so long since I have posted but life is never dull around here anymore, I am busy all the time. Just thought I would share some pictures of Miss Piper's 1st Easter.

My Mommy loves me very much.

All dolled up for church.

I am not spoiled, just very loved.

Easter was great, I think it's a holiday I will enjoy. Well hope all of you had a wonderful Easter and I will try to do better with the blogging.

Finished Object Friday

My latest project has been hair bows, I am making them to sell in my Mother inlaws store. The first picture is of the cards that I put the bows on to sell them, I made it on Scrapblog. Sorry about the picture of the bows, I had it turned the right way but when it loaded the computer had a mind of its own. These are just a few of the ones I have done, I am sure hoping they sell. To see more great finished objects go on over to the Chari Tree and take a look. Thanks for stopping by.

A day in my life...

Here are a few pictures of a day in the life of a mother and babysitter. Poor Piper having to feed herself and to top it off she is sick with a cold.
Payton and Keegan having a great time making a big mess. Payton did clean it up though. What's a little mess when they are having such a great time and staying out of my way.
And while the kids were playing and eating Mommy Missy was making mess of her own. It was my day to make the meal for revival, of course I had to make our lunch too. So now you know what my house is like two days a week.
*Note: Please call before coming to visit, I will clean the laundry off the sofa so you will have a place to sit and wash a glass so I can offer you something to drink.
Hope everyone has a great Easter weekend.

Now I can play dress up


Look at the pretty dresses my Mommy got me at the second hand store (Vintage Baby)

Do you think I have enough shoe? Now if I could just go somewhere and get to wear them.
