Semi-Wordless Wednesday

This is what Miles is up to these days :)  Playing catch with the football, while lying on the floor.
And this was a nice picture T.J. sent while we were in Iowa on St. Patrick's Day! :)

Oh, and happy one year of being engaged to me and Derrick!  It sure has gone by fast!

What I've Been Up To - Craft Edition

So lately I haven't been getting too much crafting in with it being so nice here.  Here are a few of my in-progress crafts that have yet to be finished:

First up are these calendars that my Dad's Uncle Walt made for Matt, Kaylan, and I.  Mom or Kaylan painted them these colors forever ago. 

And now Kaylan and I decided that just won't match anything we have decorated!  So...I repainted two of them, and I also had to repaint all the tiles that go in the slots.
You can clearly tell this project took up my whole craft room!! 
They are almost finished! Since this picture was taken, I have also finished the tiles that go on the nails withe all the months on them. 
The last thing I have to do is make all the holiday tiles and birthday tiles for each family.

I also have been working on Quinn's tutu for the wedding.  It's turning out really cute, but the material I chose to work with is a bit of a pain!  That's why this is as far as I've gotten :)  A little at a time!

We also finally got the herringbone art I made hung in our bedroom!

It matches the bedding we have that I made while I was in college, but we have registered for new bedding that will be even more amazing with it! 

I think that concludes this craft edition!  I have a couple other things up my sleeve, so stay tuned to see what they are :)

Uno anyone?!

Lately we have been playing a lot of UNO after Miles goes to sleep.  I think it's Derrick's favorite game.  He always seems to be the one to suggest it these days. :) 

I just found this photo on my phone.  I was dealt this hand and was dying to show everyone what I had :) 
The last time we played a game, we played Mad Gab, girls against boys.  We were killing them for the whole game and ended up losing at the end.  In our defense, they had all the easy ones! ;)  And a re-match will be had soon enough! 
Anyone have any other games they love to play?!

April Fool's!

If only this really were an April Fool's joke!!

This is exactly what I looked like when I got home from my job!!  I had put on this nice dress thinking I should "dress" it up a little since it was so nice out.  I knew I had to go watch Miles before my job for a half an hour, so I would have Kaylan finish zipping me up before she left for her job.  Well, I forgot!  And I completely forgot about it until I was driving home from my job!  At least my hair was down and could potentially have covered it up!  Hopefully no one noticed!!
