this & that.

I got a sewing machine years ago when I was in high school and it has sat in a box for years. Every time I move I bring it along with me with the hopes that someday I will learn. As you know Chris has been renovating the airstream and wanted some custom curtains(for cheap)….so he bought some $12 IKEA curtains, cut them to fit the small airstream windows and then wanted to sew the edges. This past weekend my sweet mother in law came over and taught me how to use the sewing machine! There was something so peaceful & “homey” about the soft hum of the machine, the small light glowing and the quiet house. It was such a sweet memory. And the curtains look great! I couldn’t help but think, why didn’t I do this years ago?!

We have been at the pool and playing outside nonstop. I took these pictures tonight before bed and absolutely love how I can just freeze and capture their sweetness to forever have. They have the three most precious, kind, joyful personalities… and to be able to sit back and stare a little longer into a moment is so life giving for me. 

The other pics are more or less a few randoms of “life lately”… Apple is crawling, clapping, standing, laughing constantly. She is the sweetest, most easy going little angel ever. 

Aiden found out last night his pet lizard is actually a girl so he renamed her “Elfie” and told me at dinner that when he grows up he would really like to work in a jungle where he can help animals all day. But still wants to come home to this house and be with us ;). Such tender, pure, innocent sweetness. He also was a teeny bit disappointed at first to learn that “Rango” (now Elfie) was actually a girl… but then he realized she **could** have lizard babies and he was overjoyed!

Ainsleigh is just as precious as ever. I do believe she might have fins hiding somewhere…she would swim all day if she could. And then after hours of that would choose to come home and play a good two hours in the bathtub or sprinkler. Her personality is infectious and gracious and sweet. I would say a good 97% of the day is spent smiling for this one!

Just a few random thoughts on what is going on around here :)… hope everyone is having a beautiful week!

    Be careful! I took home a pet chameleon in the 4th grade, which turned into my dad buying a boa constrictor (Julius Squeezer) for my brother…then an iguana. My mom wasn't happy when the new love for reptiles moved into a huge aquarium + cage that invaded her living room! By the 7th grade we ended up opening a family pet store and my mom got her living room back! 🙂 Love Aiden's tender heart for animals and his ability to look at the bright side about his female lizard!! Such a beautiful family you have…and hooray for learning to use that sewing machine!!

    I love to sew 🙂 It's so fun to sit down and see what I can come up with using just my machine and some fabric. I just finished and posted my most favorite project yet 🙂 Keep at it, little by little, it just gets more fun and opens more artsy avenues.

    I took a sewing class not too long ago and loved it! Can't wait to learn more. It really wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I think once you get started, it's addicting. Lovely photos!! Your children are so cute 🙂
