Look what I've been up to! I did something else crafty, yay I'm on a roll! So I saw a tutorial for how to make this sweet baby blanket, and since I already had the supplies for it, I made one myself. The only problem is that its a girl blanket, so I guess I'll have to save it for if we have another girl (haha), or it will have to be just for decoration, OR I might have to save it for a friend when they have a little girl, we'll see how it goes! Here it is:

You know, I used to be fairly artistic; I used to draw and paint and all kinds of stuff! But four kids later, I don't always find the time to get creative anymore! So when I saw this contest from Shabby Apple Dresses (I LOOVE their stuff!), I decided I would give it a go! And you know what? It was really fun! And I may sound silly but I really want to wear these dresses!haha So here's what I came up with:

I love vintage...well, pretty much anything vintage! :) I love looking on craigslist for old furniture and things I can decorate my house with, love old looking jewelry, I love vintage looking dresses and clothes. Anyway, a lady I've known since I was a teenager and absolutely adore asked me if I wanted some baby clothes. She said she had been cleaning out some things and found some of her boy's old baby clothes. She said they made her nostalgic and wanted them to go to someone she knows, and since I have a little boy she asked me--lucky me! She brought them over yesterday and as I opened up the box and started taking clothes out, it just kept getting better and better! The clothes are seriously cute and I'm in love with them! I can't wait to keep putting him in more outfits, I'm sure I'll have to add pictures as I go through them! :) By the way, Kimball is almost FIVE MONTHS OLD! Can you believe it? The kid is a stud; he's been rolling over since he was what? Three months I think? Maybe two? He does baby "push ups" all the time and is almost crawling! Yesterday he started going from hands and knees pushed back into a sitting position, he's such a smarty! He's also the sweetest happiest little thing, I could eat his cheeks all day long!

For Labor Day Weekend we planned a trip with Dave's family to go camping. We sat down one night and thought of different places we could go and everyone agreed on going to Ocean Shores. When it came time to go we weren't sure how the weather was going to be, we kept getting different forecasts: rainy, windy, then sunny but cold, blah, blah, blah. But when it came down to it, the weather was fantastic, so so beautiful!
Labor Day weekend was hopping good fun! yuck yuck :)
Bethany LOVED the ocean, Maddie LOVED picking up shells, Sam LOVED being naughty and Kimball LOVED just being held. :) It was a lot of fun and a lot of work camping with little kids, but I'm glad we got to go and hopefully its something we can do every year (a family camping trip, not necessarily at Ocean Shores).
