Pumpkin Patch

We took Amelia to the pumpkin patch the day we flew home from FL. That Saturday we had already planned on it so after nap we went. Our neighbors/friends met us there. Their family owns the patch we went it. There wasn't a fancy cow train or pony rides but Amelia could have cared less!! She loved it! She found this swing in the store and would have sat there all day if we would have let her! They had a big dog walking around and she loved him too! She is crazy for doggies and kittens!
We got some really cute photos of the kiddos! I just adore these two cuties!! Amelia and Sawyer will be the best of friends or marry each other one day. !

Tough Week

We have had some major upsets in our house/ family this week. Not only did we all get the flu virus but we had a horrible attempt to potty training. Amelia hated it. Hated it may be a an under statement. :)
My sister suffered a loss of her own. One that I have felt before... A miscarriage. My heart breaks for her and Blake. I was and am so excited to be an auntie, this just broke my heart..

Our world continued to get worse. Our sweet Grandma went home to be with Jesus, yesterday. :( Grandma Jayne was very ill and has been for a long time. I have very few memories of her being healthy. She has suffered many strokes on top of being a sever diabetic. She slipped into a coma on Thursday and woke up Friday. The doctors thought she was doing better and were going to send her back to the rehab center. My parents were driving down to FL on friday hoping to get there to see her. However, she took a turn for the worse. Mu grandpa was called back to the hospital shortly after he left. She went back into a coma and went to be with The Lord.
My heart is at peace. I know she is in a much better place. She couldn't talk, walk, or sing(which was a passion). I know she is up in heaven rocking some great-babies that we will meet one day. :)
I am just sad I didn't make it back to see her before she got so bad. Amelia and I are flying out to be with my mom who is with my grandpa next week.
My grandpa needs our prayers. He has suffered a huge loss. He isn't a man of emotion so it is hard to read him. My mom said he is pretty shaking up. It is going to be really hard next week to see him so sad. I am hoping Amelia can bring him some much needed happiness.
I am thankful for the time I got to spend with Grandma a year ago when she was healthier and got to love on Amelia. I know in my heart Grandma
will be looking down at her everyday. :)
I love you, Grandma, you will be terribly missed.

Little Break

We are still here! My poor blog has yet again been put on the back burner. Between playing with Amelia, keeping the house somewhat clean, and sewing I haven't found much time to sit and blog. I normally use nap time to sew that is "my time" and do housework each day to keep it up. Amelia is getting pretty good at helping around the house. It is crazy how big she is getting!!
Speaking of which we are coming upon her 21 month birthday and we are going to tackle 3 day potty training this next week!! Eeekkkk!!! I am pretty positive she is ready and will succeed. She tells us right after she goes potty almost every time. My goal is to have her completely trained by Thanksgiving. :) She is a genius so I know she will rock it out! ;) I will update the blog next week when we start.
I have been asked so many times i if I would sell clothing. I usually just make adorable outfits for Amelia but I have decided to take a jab at it. I am offering 3 dresses/ruffle pants for Christmas. All dresses are $35 and pants are $ 15 . Each outfit is down right adorable. If you are interest and have a girl in size newborn- 6 let me know if want order.
Amelia is pretty much the cutest model ever! :)
