My Little Girls

This is such a cute picture! Sophie fell asleep playing. Awwwww.

Me and Viv decorating eggs for Easter. She was so cute. She told us the Easter Bunny hopped away and then asked if we could go look for Him up the street. She is so funny!!!
Look at that smile! Sophie is the happiest baby ever. She's always smiling and so sweet.

Do Blondes have more fun?

Well, I got the itch to drastically change my hair, and this is the result. . .like my "myspace face"? After 4 rounds of bleach spread out over 2 days and numerous trial and error involving toners, I am blonde. Luckily, I didn't upload the pics of the in-between stuff. It will suffice to say that I had orange and yellow hair. It's not a pleasant look. In other news, I am almost finished with my second quilt, although I am on hold for at least a day to finish it. I just busted a needle on my machine and I can't find the new package of replacement needles. I think Vivian might have something to do with that. The girls are doing well, Sophie is crawling all over the place and she's just so happy and cute! Smiling all the time and sleeping wonderfully. Vivian is of course, cute and TROUBLE! But mostly cute. She sings all of the songs from her Disney movies, but probably the funniest is when she walks around the house singing "Savages! Savages!" from Pocahontas. It's quite comical.

Well, I did get my quilt top finished before my trip to Vegas. I still have to back, quilt and bind, but that can be finished in a matter of days, which is a good thing considering I only have a matter of days and another quilt to finish in that time. When I finish this quilt, it will be #7 since May '07. I think that officially makes me a quilt maker, instead of someone who has made quilts. I'll be making at least 3 more in the months to come, which I am excited about. They're wonderful to make as gifts for new babies and brides! Speaking of which, the trip to Vegas was to help my little sister find a wedding dress. You can see it here. She got the matching veil too. The picture looks not as good as it did on her. People who are 5'11 and a size 6 though look better in everything!
