We had a very fun play date/craft day with some friends! My good friend Rachel was super sweet and taught us how to make journals! It was so cool to learn how to make them from scratch! I LOVE mine! (Rachel made one for me as a gift last year and I can’t wait to […]

May: How Do You Feel?

September 6, 2011

Katelyn has always had so many facial expressions. It’s so much fun because I can ask her to show me “happy,” “grumpy,” or “silly.”     My sister-in-law’s bridal shower invite!

I wish I could take credit for this cute idea – but I actually got it from my Aunt who teaches Nursery in my parents ward! This is how they do singing time – each wood cut out has a song written on the back. They had a few and I wanted to make my […]

Hanging Out With The Aunts…and a project

September 26, 2010

Here’s a bunch of pictures of Katelyn hanging out with her aunts. She learned how to climb all sorts of things this summer. Her favorite game was to climb up on the couch and ‘pretend’ to fall (she’d always catch herself – but it sure gave us all heart-attacks!) She also liked to climb up […]
