Here's what happens when it snows!

I sew! With all the snow we had this winter, I had a lot of days when I didn't want to leave the house. So, I bought a sewing machine, found a cute pattern on ebay, from a very talented lady (link to her blog:, wonderfully written, easy to follow, and she e-mails you the pattern! Love it!), and sat down, and decided to give it s try. I made many phone calls to my mother (a home economics major who hasn't sewn in years), with a million questions! So, these are the results. Not to bad for a beginner! I even altered the pattern to make the red polka dot top! And now I am addicted, and we need warm weather so Ansley can wear all the clothes I have made her!

Also, wanted to thank my friend Jill for the cute background, which can be found at

Ansley is SO funny!

Ansley is always saying the funniest things. Everyone is always telling me that I need to write them down. She keeps Curtis and I laughing all the time. Here's some things from the past few days...

(While she was laying in bed with us one morning)

Ansley: "Dad, do you ever think about me being a Grandma!?"

Curtis: "Um, not really, no."

Ansley: "Oh, okay..."

(Then while driving in the car)

Ansley: "Can I get a cell phone with a keyboard?"

Me: "Why do you need a cell phone with a keyboard?"

Ansley: "So I can get online and so I can text my friends!"

(Just one of my all time favorite funny things she has said)

Ansley: "I'm a little nervous,"

Me: "What are you nervous about?"

Ansley: "When I grow up, I am going to have to marry a BOY!"

Me: "Well, that's true, but it will be okay."

Ansley: "I know, and he will be handsome, and charming, and nice, and wonderful, but, I'm still a little nervous!"

She is such a trip. Where she comes up with these things I have no idea. She is only 3! She has also started doing this lovely little thing where she poses for pictures, and it's horrible. We cannot get a good picture of her to save our lives. She is always doing all this weird things with her hands, or putting her arms in front of her face, or what not. The pictures at the top demonstrate this quite nicely. Oh, and she does have more than one dress :)

Happy Easter!

Let me just start by saying that it does not FEEL like Easter- it's COLD! Easter just doesn't seem right with coats, and yes, even scarves. Sure makes me miss Florida... At least we had a sunny day! That being said, it is Easter none the less, and some festivities were in order. Ansley and I were invited to an Easter Egg hunt and lunch at a friend's house this morning (Curtis was home sleeping, as he has been working nights). In the words of Ansley "It was a blast!" Gotta love that. She RAN from egg to egg, and filled her basket. She loved every minute. It was so fun to watch her get so exicted over finding each egg. Three is such a great age! We then were invited to an afternoon hunt, with some friends. Ansley had it down by then, and gathered eggs very quickly. Needless to say we are both on a bit of a sugar high this evening.

Our Wedding

Here we go...

Okay, I have noticed in the past month or so that EVERYONE has blogs!? I am a little behind, but I guess I will give it a try. We'll see how this goes...
