My Growing Son plus the New Doghouse

Heston Weaver is learning how to roll from his tum-tum to his back and I love watching how excited he gets. I started thinking about it, and sine birth, this would be the first time he could actually move himself, how fun is that?! So here's a picture of him on the floor in his nursery. He was rolling until I pulled out the camera and he saw it and reached for it, so here's the shot.
 It also came to pass that our poor Sampson (I call him Sampsonian) needed a doggie house. Ginger already had a nice red barrel for her shelter (pictured below) and with the winter weather coming, I wanted Samps to have a house of his own. Tom found all the materials in our treasure pile on the property and he made a beautiful house! We stained it at first, but then I realized that I wanted a little pop of color on the porch. So he painted it like a little barn which I love, and now Ginger is totally jealous!

Another Craft...Done!

Here was my living room wall a couple days ago (as shown in my previous blog) and below is the wall after my project was mounted. Tom did all the handy work, he's crossing off my list of honey-dos, bless his heart, but I feel like the more he does, the more I have to add to the list, how is that even possible?

And the final picture is of Tom and Heston Weaver, just thought I'd throw it in, he's too cute to pass up.

A Day of Crafts

It's time for my little Heston to move from his bassinette to his crib. I've tried it several times, but he wakes up crying, oh fiddlesticks!

So I googled how to make your baby sleep through the transition into a crib and I found out that nurses in the NICU make these sleep sacks filled with rice that you can nuke, therefore the baby thinks it's being cradled by their warm mama. So I sewed one up, and it works!

I hadn't sewed in a while, so it was kind of a practice round, but Tom said that I did pretty good!

 I also decided to make a new table runner for our piano. It was originally a white runner from KMart, but I thought I could do better. I took a length of burlap and hot glued some lace onto the ends, so here's the end result, I thought it was pretty cute myself!

Then I realized how bored I was with my blank white wall above the tv (yes, I was watching Bravo thank heavens it didn't show the logo, people would think I was addicted!), so I bought a full length mirror from Wally World and some decals from Michaels and make this deco that I can hang on that blank, boring space. This verse was one of my favorite when Tom and I were trying so hard to get preggie, so I decided that it was perfect to put in the living room. In case you can't read it well, it's Phillipians 4:19 "All I have need of his hand will provide, great is Thy faithfulness". Once Tom puts it up, I'll post more pics.

Now onto more crafts that I want to get done, thanks Pinterest!

A Visit from the Modesto Grandparents!

Little Heston Weaver told me he missed his Modesto Grandma and Grandpa, so I gave them a jingle and down they drove for a visit (Heston knows how to work the system already!).

My dad and my mom (who now likes to be referred to as Grandma Ya Ya) love visiting with Heston. I snapped a couple of pictures.

My mom told me not to take any pictures of her because she had no makeup on, sorry Ya Ya!
