catching up...

We had the best time with my mom on her visit. Thought I would catch you guys up on what we've been doing.

Of course, our days have revolved around playing with this cutie pie.
This was after a nap one day and his hair was crazy!
We spent lots of nights in the sewing room. And Santa decided to come early and I got a new embroidery/sewing machine. It is awesome and I'm so excited about it!

It is so nice and I'm so excited about all I can do and make with it!
My mom caught these next 3 pictures last Friday afternoon.

Pretty funny, right?! Obviously we were all in need of a nap. And I'm sure Cooper was napping too -- probably under a bed somewhere!

Sawyer tried carrots for the first time.
And he loved them!
He also has his first tooth. It finally broke through last Friday but the couple of nights before that were rough. I can only imagine how it must hurt. Bless him! As soon as I can get a good picture I'll share it. But it is just barely peeking through now but I can feel it and it is sharp.

We took some pictures before heading out to eat Mexican. Our 3rd time in 2 weeks!
A couple of my favorite people!

We made some improvements to the sewing room by hanging some shelves (thanks Keith).
I had way too much stuff on the desk.
My mom made a curtain for Saw's room. She is so talented and whipped this out like it was nothing. I love it. The room finally feels complete.
I took advantage of her sewing knowledge and learned how to do a few things, including making a little outfit for Sawyer. It was really easy -- or maybe it seemed easy because she was here to help me. Either way, I'm pretty proud. It was my first go at button holes and snap tape.
And this is how we felt about her leaving! Sad! =(
As much as I hated saying goodbye, I am really thankful for the time we were able to spend with her. It was such a blessing having her. It was good for my soul!
