As for sewing projects. This was more of an UPDATE project. Found these fun football costume for 2.00 clearance. Because my puppies are a bit on the chubby side, had to extend the belly strap. Added elastic and resewed the velcro. They are all ready for next halloween & the superbowl. My little butter balls! ๐Ÿ™‚

My son turned 14 near Halloween and old enough to start attending the youth church dances. His 1st dance was Country themed. He loved it and enjoyed dressing up and dancing the night away. They grow up so fast!!

Very unflattering photos of me. But this is REAL LIFE!!ย  Lost 148 lbs. Nov 20th 2012 – Nov 20 2013. I put on the same outfit. Which really doesn’t help since the clothing is so large now and that is a great problem to have. I can’t believe how fast a year went and how life changing this was for me!!!ย  Best thing I ever did!! And still on the loser’s bench where I plan to be for a bit longer ๐Ÿ™‚

Last but NOT least. Kidlets keeping my heart pumping with a scare at school.ย  Fell at school, broke her wrist, busted her knee and her head.ย  All in 1 fall at PE. Crazy!?!ย  She is so brave and such a trooper. We were transported to PICU to prepare her for surgery for her arm. However she asked them to set her broken bone for the THIRD time that day unmedicated!! And it worked. 3rd times the charm and she was able to avoid having surgery. We were discharged at 1130pm that night. 13 1/2 hours. Made for a long day. The last photo of her getting up out of bed ready to go home!ย  Was a rough day.ย  This was 1 1/2 weeks ago just before Thanksgiving. She is doing great and will be in the cast another 4 more weeks. Poor girlie but glad she is ok!!

So you can see the last month and a half has been a busy time. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Keeping it real and sharing what we do best. Families are always the top of my list and promise to get back to sharing all our fun creations very soon!!
