Family Comes to Visit!

My parents and sister came to visit for a week and Elise was very excited! We stopped at Target after picking up my sister and decided to eat lunch there. They have a Pizza Hut.

Relaxing before bed with Grandpa & Grandma!

We went to The Little Gym and Elise was quite the little show off. She was running around try to show them everything! It was SO cute and Aunt Amy got quite the workout, chasing her around and trying to keep her from hurting herself. We all had lots of fun!

So if you ever come visit Colorado Springs, you need to check out the Focus on The Family Welcome Center! They have an amazing play area for children! They have a room where you can dress up like the Adventures in Odessy characters, secret passageways, 3-story spiral slide and tons more. The best thing is it's free! They do have a soda shoppe where you can buy lunch or ice cream! These pictures are in a theater type room. They were showing Veggie Tales, Wonderful Wizard of Ha's!
They have this tunnel the kids can crawl through!

My parents celebrated their 34th wedding anniversary while they were visiting! We went to Front Range BBQ where you can get the best ribs I've EVER tasted! It is fall off the bone good and you have several different sauce options! Elise really enjoyed the corn bread muffins and baked beans!

We showed them the Garden of The Gods and took some turisty pictures!
There was bad weather in TX when my sister was suppose to fly out, so she ended up staying an extra day. Eric climbed most of Pike's Peak and we drove my parents to the top. No pictures though, it was FREEZING and super windy! We had a wonderful time!

October Continued

Elise's new fetish is to wear my shirts! There are 3 of them that she loves to wear and anytime she sees them, she wants to wear them. Here is one of them.

Elise loves the park! I try to got frequently. A lady at the park this day said that she looked like a little European baby! She had a jean skirt and white leggings that you can't see in the picture.

Our little one is taking after her Daddy already! She had to check out the REI Magazine before bed!

These are new products that I have made recently. I got accepted to my first craft show in Colorado! It will also be the first craft show I've done with just stuff that I made. It is Nov. 12, 13 and 14 here in Colorado Springs! If your in the area, come check it out! Any way, ruffle pants, jeans, design, or Christmas. Sizes newborn-4T.

The Hubs designed new business cards as well as a new banner for my Etsy site!

Here is another new product I've been working on. This is a reversible skirt. It has a Christmas design on one side and an everyday design on the other, so your little one can be stylish at Christmas and beyond!

This skirt is not reversible, but there are no raw seams. All seams are french seams.

Here is another new product! Necklaces that can be used as teething jewelry or just a fun necklace!


I decided to dress up for halloween at the last minute. Here is the final product! What do you think?

Eric is beginning his photography business! He just created his website! Check it out here!

A Whole Month!

I can't believe it has been a month since I last posted! Life has been crazy! I feel like I felt just about every emotion possible this month. I'm going to have to do 2 post because of all the pictures I want to share!
There are good and bad things about my hubby being our family photographer! The good definately outweight the bad, but here goes. Good: always having someone to talk pictures, getting exactly the pictures that you want, it free, there are many more, but I'll just leave it at that for now. The bad: sometimes he forgets to give me the pictures. The next few pictures are from this summer, I can't remember when.
The Hubs decided we could participate in dressing up for Halloween this year and I got right on making Elise's costume! I decided on a Garden Gnome! I wanted it to be something girly, but not your typical fairy or princess.
Here she is trying on the hat!
Here is the full costume. We are doing a white shirt and leggings! Isn't she super cute?
Elise is loving the fall weather and so am I! I have missed having 4 distinct seasons for the past 5 years living in TX. Usually every fall, I start to miss Michigan. Although I miss my family and friends, this fall has been very different. I LOVE LOVE LOVE living in Colorado! It's the perfect place for our little outdoor family! There is a little trail right near our apartment and Elise really enjoys it! Here are a couple of pictures of a recent hike we went on!
Here is another wonderful picture from The Hubs! It's a favorite!
We went to the Eleven Mile State Park, which is about 1 1/2 or so from us! The drive is beautiful, you get to drive through the mountains! This is Elise eating lunch on the way.

Once in the park, dockey's apparently roam free and we had to stop and wait for them to get out of our way! I felt like I was in another country!

Alright, I will finish the month so far in another post. Stay tuned!
