Hoppy Easter (cheesey, I know)

Sophie helping to sweep the living room- making everything look good for the Easter Bunny.

Vivian in her "Easter shirt, that she insisted on sleeping in.  What a silly girl!

Nathan LOVES his chocolate bunny :)

The Silly picture.  Unfortunately, that's the only kind of picture we got of all three kids together this year.  Oh well.  I think it represents our lives fairly accurately.

I made the girls' dresses using THIS free pattern from Burda style.  I had a couple of friends make some too.  Its a really easy pattern, and the thing I like most about it is the attention to interior detail.  It is constructed so that there are no raw edges visible inside.  The bodice is lined too- which I always think is a nice touch.  One minor note, I had to add a button closure to back.  Maybe my kids have really big heads, but these puppies were not going on without it!

12,000 Hits!!! (and a giveaway)

A few months ago, my count hitter stopped working.  I was so bummed because I had just passed the 10,000 mark and I had to start over at zero.  Today I was looking at my lowly little blog and noticed I've had 12,000 hits!  Wow, that's humbling that people want to read about my mostly boring life.  It also makes me feel bad for not posting more often.  I planned to do a post this weekend, but I've been spending a lot of time cleaning up puke and snuggling sick kiddies.  Now though    12,000.  I know, how many times am I going to say this?  But, I'm seriously so excited.  I think a giveaway is in order!  I've got a copy of Weekend Sewing that is in (almost) perfect condition.  My kids tore the book jacket a bit, but I feel like a giveaway.

 Here's all you have to do:

1. Follow the blog
2. Leave a comment telling me about your favorite post that I've done
3. A post you'd like to see in the future

I'll announce the winner next Monday (4/25).  Happy Winning!
