Easter in UT

So Brixton, Grim and I drove to Utah on the 24th of March. The drive is getting better every time I drive it. It's just super boring when its just me!! I don't have anyone to talk to. And you can only listen to the same songs on the ipod so many times!! But we finally made it to UT on the 25th!!
We had Brixton's 1st Birthday party with the Thompson's the next day!

It was very very messy and that night he had a very upset lil tummy!! But he sure enjoyed it!!
We did an Easter Egg Hunt at my parents ward! It was good, Brix really just like watching all the kids running around he really didn't get it. Plus it was FREEZING so he had his huge coat on and it made it hard to pick things up without falling over.

Brixton is going to be very spoiled. He had gifts waiting for him when he got to Ut. My parents got him a Red Radio Flyer Wagon. Shebli and I sat down and put it together, it was awesome to watch us do that. But we finally got it together and he loves it! We pulled him all over the house because there was SNOW on the ground in UT. So while I was pulling him my sister thought she should be pulled around also....

aahahahahahhahahahaha!!!! I couldn't help myself!

Out at the bon fire!!

Cher & Brixton. She loves his him!!

Me Maddy and C.j. hunting for Easter Eggs at Granny Hatty's!!!

Back from Utah...and still craftin'

Well Brixton, Allie and I made our way back to 29 Palms on Monday!! That drive is a killer!! It's not fun but it sure it worth it! We get to see everyone and I find new things to do everywhere I go!! :)
When I was home I took a rug hooking class and it was awesome!! That is some serious work! I think my project took me about 2 1/2 days. Shelbi is still working on hers...

I went to the Corn Wagon with my grandma for more supplies and left with another rug hooking project and signed up for a bag making class!! :)

I actually use it as a diaper bag! I love it. If you are like me, you love pockets! I made extra pockets on the inside of the bag. It feels really cool to pack around something you made! :)
I also made a fat quater bag, its going to be awesome for when we go to the beach at the end of the month. It's huge and holds a ton!!

Sorry if you thought I was done!! But I'm just getting started!!! :)
Millie (hairstylist in Ut) put some of my crochet headbands in her shop, all but a few sold. Now that summer is around the corner I have started making lil flowers to put in hair or on headbands.

Those are just a few that I'm sending to Millie to see how they will do. It's really hard trying to find things to make that would be for a little boy! :) It's like girls and accessories just go together!!! I'll find something though!!
My final project I'll show you is my Easter skirt!

I found an awesome book called '101 things to make with a yard of fabric' and I love it. That's where this skirt came from. I love it, I'm still learning how to sew but practice makes perfect.
