My New Hobby.......

I am going to brag on myself for a minute... Most of you know that I have started a new hobby, sewing and that I love it. It is all that I do these days. I just want to show everyone my first 3 outfits that I have made.
I made this for dressy events and church.
This is some fabric that I just had to have so I made an outfit for the end of the winter when it starts warming up.

This was my very first outfit that I made in my beginners sewing class. It is reversible.

Side 2 of the reversible outfit.
I hope everyone had a great weekend and can't wait to see alot of you over Thanksgiving!

It C Bit C's Children's Clothing

I wanted to let everyone know of a precious monogramming and clothing business that my friend Denise, here in Birmingham owns. She has been doing Jack's stuff since he was born and I could not be happier with the outcome. I get so many complements on his stuff. She is great to work with, quick, and inexpensive. Please check out her blog. She is still working on getting everything up, so check back often. Let me know what you think or if you have any questions!

Baton Rouge

This is a long overdue post. We have been crazy around here trying to get back on schedule form our weekend in Baton Rouge. Brandon, Jack, and I headed to Mandeville on Thursday for the weekend. Friday Brandon and I headed to New Orleans to pick up our Alabama Fan friends, Joey and Andi and then were on our way to Baton Rouge. Jack stayed with Gigi on Friday and then with Maw Maw and Paw Paw on Saturday.

Despite the loss, we had a great weekend. Here are a couple of pictures from the tailgate on Saturday.

Jack learned alot while staying with Gigi. When we picked him up on Sunday he could show us with his finger how old he was and he could tell us that the kitty cat says "meow". He now knows what the dog and cat says. He has also started counting with a little assistance. I have always counted to 2 or 3 when I do things with him like rolling his sleeves or tying his shoes, so I guess he just caught on. If I say 1, he will say 2, and sometimes 3(not very often). He is soooo precious these days and is learning something new everyday.

Happy Halloween

We had a wonderful Halloween. My Dad came in town for a long weekend to hang out with us and be with Jack on his 2nd Halloween. He was precious.

My Mom was in a while ago and we were out shopping for nothing in particular. I had not even thought about Jack's Halloween costume yet. We walked into HomeGoods and there it was the most precious costume I have ever seen, a shaggy dog. We tried it on him and didn't think twice. GiGi had to buy it for him to wear this Halloween.

He acted like he had been doing it for years. He didn't understand the Trick or Treat concept but he did understand "knock knock". He would run up to each door and knock. If they didn't come right then he would try and open their door. Once they did open the door he would take a handful of candy, put it in his bag and go for another. He even tried to make himself at home in a few houses. One in particulatr he noticed the neighbors little boys toys in the living room and walked in and sat down to start playing with the toys. I was so embarrased!!

This is a picture of him on Halloween. Dad and I trid to prepare him all day, but he had no clue what was going on.
Here is our precious litle puppy. He got to Trick or Treat on his new tricycle that Cookie(my Dad) bought him this weekend as an early Christmas present. Can you say spoiled?
This isn't the best picture but I thought it was cute of the 3 boys having a blast.
Jack is impatiently waiting for them to open the door.
This is the best picture(not saying much) that I could get of him all night. He is at the age where he will not stay still and I can't seem to get any cute pictures.
I had to show the cutest part of the costume, the tail. When he runs(because he doesn't walk) it wags from side to side. He even kept the hood on all night! He was such a trooper.
I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!
