A comparison

My mother was comparing the photos of my two smiling babies so I thought that I would post them here for all to see. The top photo is of little girl taken on October 23, 2006. The bottom photo is of silly boy taken November 18, 2004. This makes them roughly the same age in these photos.

More pictures

Here is a picture of little girl smiling. There is nothing better than a baby's first smiles.

The quilt pictures are from a Nimble Thimbles challenge called "Stars over Time". The challenge was that you got a yard of fabric and the patterns for all the stars. You had to use some of the challenge fabric in each of the stars. I have had these blocks done for a while but didn't know how to set them. I finally decided that done was better than perfect and just set them with sashing with cornerstones. I want a wider border, but don't have enough of the wizard fabric so I think I will do a second inner border of the green fabric. I have it on the design wall and am living with it for a few days before I make a final decision.

Some pictures

These are pictures of me and my friends with our kids at the Desert Botanical Garden. Twice a year they have a butterfly exhibt, the fall exhibit is the monarch butterflies. Silly boy was much more interested in playing with his car in the dirt. A car that he had smuggled in in the pocket of his pants. I didn't think about checking his pants pockets because these are the first pants that have had pockets. Didn't take him long to figure that one out!

Today we went out to Schnepf farms for their pumpkin festival. Silly boy had a great time riding the train, he didn't want to get off. I will post some more pictures in another post.
