I have finished 3 of the 5 quilts needed for the girl's room. For each girl I bought a 2 yd. piece of fabric, then did the edges in coordinating fabrics. I will be buying them new sheets to match also. I plan on using the scraps from these quilts to make the crib quilt for Bethany.

Relatively simple, and really cute!

Great Quote

I found this quote this morning and wanted to have it for my own records... figured I'd share it with you too!

"Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.

Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks.

Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you shall be the miracle."

–Phillips Brooks

I suppose that says it all.

Birthday Skirts

For Anna's birthday she received some fabric and the promise I would make her some skirts. It is really hard to find modest skirts in her size, so I resorted to making our own. I think they turned out really cute, and were so easy!

A wonderfully "Twirly" girly skirt...

Skirt 2... less full, but I love the material.

And just 'cause... the leaves on "our" hill are starting to turn colors...

Sam... 1 month old!

I cannot believe he's a month old already, but it's really true... Sam is already growing up. I guess I blinked! Here are some photos... nothing professional, just snapshots, but he is so cute...
