Happy Birthday Malia!

It's party time!

I love this middle picture!  
Malia is copying Harley by sticking out her lips

I had so much fun making this cake!  
I always cross my fingers because I really don't know what I'm doing but I always pray it turns out.
I made 3 different colors of fondant using marshmallows. 
Watched a quick youtube video on how to make zebra stripes and then went to work creating!  
It's a lot like playing with play-do but for adults :) 

Malia was so funny, she wanted to keep blowing out her candles
 before the "happy birthday" song was done.  We relite the candle several times
 before Harley put his hand in front of her mouth.
Yay!  You did it!
Super excited about blowing out her candles


Malia with her sisters and friend, Shandon

Malia got a sand table for her birthday. 
Um, she wanted to push it around like it was car or something.  
We had so much fun celebrating Malia's life!
She is such a joy! A little pistal at times but always adorable!

Stay tuned for an update on her blog,  We can rejoice together on God's faithfulness and healing power!!

Look who's 2!

A pre-birthday photo shoot with Momma.  
I needed to get a picture blown up for her little party.  

The skirt and the shoes were the inspiration to this outfit.  Malia received the skirt as a gift last year and I found these adorable shoes at Target.  Next I found zebra fabric at Hobby Lobby along with her head band and bow and then I went to work sewing the 2 on a onsie.  Super Cute!

Happy Easter!

“I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?” - Jesus

We had a great Easter day as a family.
We spent it going to church, coming home and doing Easter baskets followed by yummy brunch, a relaxing afternoon and then another yummy dinner.  

The girls had so much fun hunting for Easter eggs.  

It was fun to see Malia just as into her Easter basket as the two older girls.  It didn't take her long to figure out how to open those eggs!  

These girls are so blessed to have such a wonderful daddy! I love this picture!

Sewing Projects

I brought back mom's sewing machine this summer and I've been having lots of fun with it!
I find myself feeling so close to her when I'm working in the basement after the kids have gone to bed.  I can picture her at her sewing machine with a pin in her mouth and her hands delicately working a piece of fabric. I'm not sure if she's looking down at me laughing or proud but I'm having fun!

This blanket is for my friend Jill's baby. Sweet, little Ferne  

This blanket is on it's way to IL. for sweet, precious little Kaleb. (our newest Nephew)

It is 80 degrees on April 1st!  
The girls loved getting the little pool out and playing in the water.
