What We've Been Up to Lately...

This post is going to be all over the place, but my life is all over the place lately, so it fits.   We have been having a wonderful May.  Adam and I celebrated our 6th anniversary on the first <3 Yay! I love my husband, and I can't believe how long we have been together!  Our married years finally outweigh our dating years- we started dating ten and a half years ago :)  We celebrated by going to see Wicked- it was amazing.  I loved it! I had a great anniversary- thanks honey.
May has also brought on a whole new level of dealing with my two year old- yikes.  Two is tough! My little Ellie is so sweet, and smart, and kind, but boy oh boy is she a handful these days!  For example, the other day she came to me and told me she drew L's.  I said that was great honey, but where?  And she said, in the bathroom.... Here is a picture.  I didn't know wether or not to be proud, they were correct L's...

Right after I saw her artwork, she told me "We don't draw on walls, only paper!"  Well, yeah, if you knew that, then?????

Ellie also got her first haircut!  I just wanted to even it out, so it would grow out evenly.  She was excited, then scared, then really happy. 

This month has also been a busy month of sewing for me.  I sewed my first Renaissance dress (won't fit Ellie until at least 2011 Halloween- oh well), an Annie dress for a friend, a teepee, and some other stuff.  I have been having a lot of fun, but I have let my house get out of control- time to buckle down and get back to work for a little while. Until my next project, which is my sister Allie's nursery bedding :)

We were also fortunate enough to go to the lake with our friends the Calderwoods.  Rebecca's family has a condo out on a lake in Virginia, and a boat.  It was so fun!  It was Lily's first time on a boat- she was an angel.

We always have so much fun with our friends, and we are so excited that they are expecting another little girl this summer! Then we will both have two little girls in the same grade!  Less than a year apart :)  Ellie loved the boat of course, and really enjoyed the swimming and the intertube.  We all had so much fun- thanks Calderwoods!

We also enjoyed your company immensely! And Ella is officially off her "binkers" so it was a monumental weekend! She cried the last hour home for it and I was beginning to regret my decision but it was worth it in the end. Thanks for coming to join us. We always love your company and look forward to Thanksgiving if not sooner when we see you again:)

PS: you do nursery bedding? Oooh, I should put in a request now if we ever end up having a boy:)
