There is a great bike/walking trail by our house that we try to get to on nice days. If I am with Alexia during the day we just walk but in the evenings after dinner we try to get a bike ride through the trail. There is a cute little lake and playground for Alexia to play around in. It is great for those beautiful and sunny nights we have here. Alexia would stay out there until midnight if we let her.

These two bundles of joy have entered into my life. I was having trouble with my old sewing machine so we saw this one on sale (and the saleswoman gave me 10% off on top of the sale!!!!) and just bought it! I was a having a little bit of buyers remorse because of the price tag but once I started sewing with it...OMG like butter!!! It was amazing and I don't know how I lived without it before. Then I "had" to buy something to store my ever growing collection of threads and bobbins. I love that it is not just a plain sewing bin and I love that pattern so much. I already finished two valences and a boppy cover for my friend's daughter, an "I out did myself" pettiskirt for my goddaughter, and a blanket for my cousin's baby girl. I am in the middle of crib bumpers and a car seat canopy, which I hope to finish in a few days. I hope I remember to take pictures of these projects so show you all. The next step is building a sewing table (in the works for next month!) so I can get projects done faster and neater.

I miss my laptop so much. It has my pictures on it (even new ones I want to post but didn't get the chance), my favorite sites, and is my connection to EVERYONE!!!! After everything this past week we think we know the problem so hopefully tomorrow I will have it up and working. Why not yesterday? Nick had a midterm due. Why not today? Nick has a softball game. Tomorrow Nick is not allowed to do anything but help me get my computer working.
