It's like a weight was lifted

So this weekend I worked really hard and had tons of help from Colby and finished more of my "inventory". I'm super happy because I feel a little relieved! I'm feel better about selling and I even have another boutique I'm going to be selling in the end of October. YAHOO!!!
So one of my projects I finished is the little girl capes...
Displayed so you can see both sides.
Now displayed like "cup-capes"
Haha I was pretty proud when I came up with that. :) 
Also made these cute winter flowers. 

Last but not least Colby made a few things... he is getting really good. I might just have to have him work with me!
Yes Colby did make both of the little pin cushions in the picture. He is so creative and very good at making these pin cushions. :) I know he'll be happy that I'm sharing with everyone that he is making crafts on the side but I had to!

Base Carnival

Colby, Brixton and I went to the base carnival on Saturday for some fun in the hot hot sun! It was really nice, you can't beat free food, and free games for the kids. They had bounce houses and pony rides, I felt really bad for the poor little ponies it was hot out there. I wouldn't want screaming little kids trying to kick my in the sides. Brixton just liked looking at the ponies so we just got pictures.

We also rode on the Ferris wheel. Brixton really liked that, it wasn't a very big one but it was pretty fun.

We had lots of fun, but it was during Brixton's nap time and he had-had it after the Ferris Wheel so we headed home.
Of course on the ride home Brix passed out! It was a good family day!

beautiful morning

Lately the weather in the morning has been awesome! We can get out of the house and play at the park. So Brix and I walked around Luckie Park, and played at the playground.
things we saw/did at the park
*Brix said "hi" to everyone we passed.
*went down the "big boy" slide by himself.
*saw a humming bird. 
*tried to chase down a little girl to give her a hug.

We both really enjoyed the park today. I wish everyday was this nice. Hopefully by November 29 will be cooled down.

My little stud is still have asleep. Look at his hair!!

I'm losing track of time...

Man, I have never use to lose track of time like this. It must be because I'm a mom. Weekdays and weekends don't mean anything to me, they are all the same days. Don't get me wrong, I love being a mommy and being with Brix, I'm just saying that the days just mesh together sometimes.
I've been working hard on trying to get my "inventory" ready for the Barn Boutique, it doesn't work well when Brix is awake. He likes to have someone to play with, maybe I need to do more play dates?? He loves my sewing machine too, none of his toys mean anything to him when I get it out. So I try to work during his 1-1.5 hours of nap time. Lol needless to say I don't get much done. :)
Last week for Labor Day we had Grandma & Grandpa Thompson out! I know they love seeing us and of course baby Brix but I just feel for them when they have to drive that far! It was a good weekend, Colby had a 96, he went golfing with his dad and Chris and Brix and I went shopping in Rancho Mirage. For Brix of course! Grandma and mommy love to spoil Brix!! I got essentials this time though, no toys, just new shoes and a very small portion of chilly clothes. Right now it's still 90 and sunny so we don't need winter clothes just yet. While we were down the hill, Colby and his dad put the "big boy" side rail for Brixton's bed. Transforming it from a crib to a toddler bed, we modified it though. We didn't use the typical white mesh side rail for Wal-Mart, we went vintage. With a 1/2 rod iron railing that matches his bed perfectly, Colby and his dad just painted some wood to match and help attach it to the bed.
I'm really proud of Colby because he came up with the idea, he brought the railing home and put it all together with his dad! Yahoo for Daddy's!!
