Hippo Baby

I wanted to show off his hippo teeth before they are gone.

Michael hit 9 months last week. If you know me, you know I do not encourage crawling. They are much more dangerous when they are mobile. Nevertheless crawling is upon us. I got the babies out of the bathtub and before I could blink he was up to trouble. Look how innocent he looks.

He's got some moves going on.

He is not innocent at all! What a tease!!

Women's Conference

These wonderful friends from Irvine have been going to Women's Conference for around 5 years now. Last year was my first year.Too many of us have moved away so this was an awesome reunion of eating, laughing, staying up past 4, and all the other amazing things that happen when moms get together without kids for 3 days. They boosted me up and sent me home happy. I am sure next year we will have many more changes to the group's lives but we will meet back together again and pretend like no one moved away and life was how it was before The Split and we had Radical Valentine's Parties, Hair Birthday parties, Whobilations, and Christmas Chocolate Making Midnights Movies , Slumber Parties (see below) Hero Camp, 100s of park days (last few pics), beach trips (Last pic), baby showers and so many other fun activities that I never even blogged about. Sigh.

Michael's Quilt

This Quilt was a year in the making. I found the 1st of the fabric last year Women's Conference and finished it this year at Women's Conference. For those of you who think I whip through projects, does this convince you otherwise? At 1st, other projects took precedence. Then we moved and it was on the moving truck. Then we remodeled and settled into life. He doesn't have the same need for it as when he was nursing and such but oh well. I made the kid a quilt :)

I am very much enjoying the flowers around my house! Considering I did no work to get them here, I am loving it!! We have been working hard outside getting our garden going and moving compost and mulch around that came with house. More on the garden next week!

I was a little sad that I had no purple tulips but they have arrived! You would have to click on the picture to enlarge it to see them.

Even though I go to stores and see bulbs and flowers I would love to plant, I can't. I need to wait a whole year so I know what will come up on its own!
Currently I have 3 vases in the house with flowers and it did not make a dent. My kids love going outside to collect them for me.
