We find out if "new baby" is a boy or girl on Monday. We are really excited to see what direction that Lord will be taking our family in. Will Lilly have a best friend in her sister, like I do? Or will we have the pleasure of navigating the uncharted waters a boy will bring? I thought it would be fun to hear what you are thinking. Please vote and we'll let you know Monday.

Lilly was soo excited to be going to the "punkin match" this weekend! We went to Irvine Regional Park. She tried to pick up the biggest pumpkins, sit on them, and kiss & hug them. We went in a hay bail maze and a spooky house. Auntie Neanee, Brian, Emy, and Quentin came too. We went on a tractor pulled hay ride and bought her one of the only pumpkins that she could carry out! We had a lot of fun. It may just be a start to a family tradition.

Well, it's been awhile. I spent another weekend free from crafting. (However, I did purchase some fabric to finish a quilt that I started a long time ago). I read another book this weekend. The much talked about:Twilight. It was a good, easy read. My sister, who never reads, is actually reading the entire series, so I thought I would see what all the buzz is all about. It seems that Lilly also has her mother's love of reading. Whenever I read in front of her, she climbs into my lap, asks me to read to her, and proceeds to take my book away from me. Go figure!

With the craft fair behind me and in the midst of a free weekend, "Sew Crafty Saturday" & Sunday were spent reading. Ah, what a luxury! I finished The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski. I enjoyed it tremendously: family drama, meets dog breeding, meets ghosts. Trust me- it all makes sense!

It's all over. The craft boutique was a lot of fun. My friends and family came to support me and I got to share a booth with my "four feathered friends," Emy, Stephanie, and Amy. Now it's on to designing a new nursery, Lilly's birthday, Christmas, and Penny's wedding.

Here are a few more items I finished this weekend for the boutique on Saturday. I made 6 yarn wreaths in all. One is hanging on my front door for Halloween. The little felt creatures are pins. They can be attached to clothing, bags, or headbands. My sewing machine is on the fritz. Hopefully, my mom can get it up and running for me...

I am not sure if I have shared this or not, but I am participating in a craft boutique next Saturday. It is from 8am to 11am at my neighbor's house across the street. I was very excited when we planned it in the summer, but I haven't done much lately because I have been a lot sicker with this pregnancy. Now I feel like it is crunch time. I have made aprons, yarn wreaths, sewing kits in a jar, button broaches, felt pins, oilcloth coasters, button bobby pins, stuffies, tissue covers, and a bit more... It sounds like a lot. But since I get bored easily, I only have a few of each item. I am looking forward to it, and I still have a lot to do. It will be a crazy week!

I am driving myself nuts this year because I don't know what Lilly should be for Halloween. I don't want to spend too much money because it's only one day, blah blah. But, I also realize that pretty soon, it won't be my decision to make. In a few years, she'll be telling me what she wants to be. Last year, she was a baby elephant and she didn't really get it, but this year will be so much fun. She's almost two and she loves lollipops. Her music class is even having a Halloween party. How cute is that? If you have any ideas or you are local and have a fun costume we can borrow, please let us know!
