New Earrings

I really haven't had time to create much lately..but here are some simple, cute, and trendy ear baubles!..(just click on the picture to take you to them)
It seems everything I do has to be done fast and I'm constantly finding shortcuts all the time to get daily tasks accomplished.
A crawling boy who pulls himself up on anything that will stand still long enough is a full time job..
Mothers who work at home...they must have some secret that I haven't figured out yet!
Have I mentioned I'm ready for spring? I need to sit on my front porch!

My Red Velvet Boys

When I was little I remember my mom making red velvet cakes. I think it was a challange for her to try and make the ultimate one because I recall the tweaking of the cake trying to make it more red than the last time or making a different icing..anyway it was always wonderful.
And now these days Chris' mom does the same thing with her red velvet
cake...must be a mom thing
or in my case..a husband thing!
Chris made his first red velvet cake the other night!
And with all due credit he is the cook of the house..I am the cleaner upper!
I do cook some but its just not my thing..he loves it and watches over the food with endless patience....I tend to abandon it
Anyway..he made his mom's icing recipe..it takes a long time, cooking part of it..mixing the other part forever and then mixing it all together..it was an all evening event. And little Carter was intriqued with all the clattering in the kitchen.
There he is down on the floor watching daddy in his new favorite toy..a diaper box!
(I'll have that story in a later post)
I happen to capture the dive into the icing..I think he approves of it!

hmmmm..better have a second taste just to make sure!

Back in the box..with icing to go :)

9 months old today!

And it's Friday the 13th..which I happen to be born on! When I was in labor and we missed his due date on the 11th (our lucky number) I kept saying if it can't be the 11th I wanted the 13th..and it was :)
I know..crazy to want my labor to extend a day!
His new birthday toy! Its amazing how fast they outgrow toys..and we are not frivolous buying toys all the time..but when its time..its time (for our sake as much as his)
I haven't had much time to create but here is a new earring listing:

It's time to lower the crib!

Yes the time has come that I have been excited and dreading at the same time! I can barely reach to lower him down now:)
Today Chris was putting on the closet doors (yea) and I put Carter in his crib while we worked in his room. And what a surprise to look and see little boy had pulled himself up for the first time all by himself and stood for the longest time..we were not expecting to see that this soon..he just started crawling a couple of weeks ago!

He finally got those darn things that dangle and tease!

As you can see he was really proud of himself!

Also his new thing is waving..its so cute and all boy, open hand he moves back and forth!

He finally tired out!
