New Shoes

I made my boy some shoes yesterday. I've made so many of these, I can whip them up in about half an hour now. He watched from his swing while I sewed :) They are from flannel scraps and they are warm and perfect and they stay on his feet. Maybe I'll make him another pair to go with the tag blankie I'm making him for Christmas.

We had a nice weekend in Colorado City with Casey's family. His brother is moving his auto shop to a great new location and I didn't want to stay home by myself while Casey went to help. It's always nice to have a change of scenery once in awhile. We're going back down for Thanksgiving so I'll have another whirlwind day getting ready. It takes A LOT of effort to get all of us down there. We have to take sooo much stuff just for a few nights.

Happy birthday to my dear hubby today! The big 2-8 :)

Natalie is wearing undies on her head right now. I asked her why and she said it's her Cinderella scarf so she can go feed the chickens. Silly girl.

I know my posts have been few and far between lately, but really, can ya blame me? Besides having three little ones, the few projects I have been working on are Christmas gifts and I can't share them here yet. So, if I don't post until after Thanksgiving, I hope all of you have a blessed week and are truly Thankful for the Lord's gifts to you. If you need some help being thankful, here are some great posts about giving thanks on Femina.


  1. Those shoes are adorable! Is there a tutorial for them somewhere or did you make them up? My baby NEEDS some, and I have some pirate flannel just waiting for a use!

  2. the shoesies are of the same flannel Elijah's Christmas jammies are made from :) Too cute. I think Natalie gets the undies on her head from her Papa. Ask him about that some time
