Don't Leave Mascara Out!

May I remind all you mothers out there not to leave your mascara out on the counter...where little hands can reach them. Luckily I have REALLY good eye makeup remover. Something tells me though that this is just the beginning....

Skateboarding 101

So here are a couple videos of Ben's attempts at teaching Landon how to skateboard. I seriously couldn't watch it at first, especially because he wasn't wearing a helmet or any sort of padding (don't judge!). But he's actually pretty good at balancing and I didn't even get videos of his best rides. He's getting so big. It makes me grateful that a new baby is coming soon because my baby doesn't seem like a baby anymore...he's becoming such a big boy! I love this age though cause it's so much fun to have conversations with Landon. It definitely makes our days more interesting. I haven't done an update in a while, but here are some little things that have changed for him. He LOVES apple pancakes that Ben makes for him on Saturday and Sunday mornings. He does this fake whimpery cry to make you feel sorry for him. He's pulled all his clothes off in the morning...including his diaper, which now makes it obvious that we need to go in and get him sooner. He rides Ben's skateboard pretty well. He likes to pull the wagon when he goes on a walk with dad. He tells me things like "Mommy's a gworrell (girl) and Yandon is a spiderman" and that "Baby Tessa a come soon". I love hearing the things that he says. He loves doing the song "Head Shoulders Knees and Toes" and "If you're Happy and You Know It" and "Sticky Bubblegum". I LOVE THIS KID!!!

more quiet book pages

Here are some of the recent pages that I've finished.



Recent Accomplishments

Ever since Ben got me a sewing machine for Christmas, I have been pretty much OBSESSED with sewing projects for kids and friends. I have found some great blogs and websites that give you instructions, step by step, on how to make cute little gifts, etc. Below are some of my recent accomplishments.

The crayon roll I made for Landon's little friend Maya

This is the crayon roll that I made for Landon and we call them his "Cowboy Crayons."And I found another really cute website that makes scripture covers and totes...but there are no instructions on how to make them, so I tried to figure it out on my own. This is the first one I made. And the pink one is the second one I made. The black one was pretty easy to make...but the pink one, the black flower took forever to make and figure out how to securely attach it.
