diapers & wipes

I have lots of baby showers to attend this summer... which is super fun, but can get expensive. So I decided to try to make a few home-made items. I have owned a sewing machine since I was a freshman in college, but have only used it like once until this project!! I hope to use it more and strengthen my sewing skills. (I can't tell you how many times I had to re-do the bobbin and re-tread the needle- ha ha.. practice makes perfect- right?)

Here are my projects:
a burp cloth using "tiny safari" flannel fabric

this is a little bag to keep diapers & wipes in!
I gave these to our friend Kristi Holman on Saturday
... so if you are having a baby in the near future-
one or both of these gifts might be yours - get excited! ha ha

the team!

a few weekends ago we had a retreat with some friends. We had such a great time catching up with Mark & Stacy who live in Dallas, eating great food & sharing our hearts/dreams for the future. Chase and I are so blessed with our team. God has truly been great in uniting our hearts for his glory. I am so thankful that we really care for and love each other. Here are some fun pics from the weekend!

Spoonfull... sooo good!

of course we had a bonfire with somemores included!

we are blessed...

with our mommas! Happy late Mother's Day! We love you all and are super thankful for your love, friendship & support.

Until I started nannying I never realized how much work mom's do for little ones! It is a 24/7- full time job! Thanks moms for wiping our rears & tears, for teaching us to love Jesus while praying for us daily, for teaching us not to be brats (hopefully this is true :0) ) and for keeping up with us all those years and now... We really appreciate it. I can only hope and pray that I will be a momma like you all were to us one day!
