Last weekend we headed over 2 mountain passes to Victor, Idaho to visit Lauryn, Jordy and Whityn. We had fun hanging around and having a couple dance parties.

Happy 4th Birthday Charlotte!!
There is definitely a 4 year old in the house. She has attitude, and serious opinions. She is not afraid to stand up to her parents, or being very dramatic. We are working on humility, giving, and being thankful :)
Charlotte has grown 1 1/2 inches in 1 1/2 months! She is sleeping better than she ever has. She is into cleaning up her room during quiet time (huge bonus for me, she makes the bed and everything), picking out her own outfit, and declaring her favorite color often (which shifts between pink and gold daily). She knows how to write her name and is working on many other letters too. She is still quite the little ballerina, director, performer, storyteller, and joker. Most recently, we have been talking about death, the universe and her spirit. We love you Charlotte and hope you have a wonderful 4th year of life.

We celebrated Charlotte's birthday yesterday with a couple of friends. Charlotte was insistent that everyone wear party attire. When she woke up yesterday morning (the day of her party), she got herself dressed before she even left her room, she then walked straight up to Timothy and said "Please look handsome for my party. Do you have a tie?". She then walked up to me and said "I hope you will remember to wear a dress." She was not letting it go, she asked that I make sure all persons coming to her party were aware of the dress code. We are definitely 4 years old lately.

I am in love with pillows lately. I have made several because I was not finding what I wanted, and needed some items to tie my decor together and add some texture. Most of the pillows on my bed were made several years ago, as decor for the living room. I moved the pillows to my bedroom to go with my beautiful new quilt made by this wonderful aunt of mine.
Then, I took an old cream zippered sweater and made a new pillow with great texture. I left the zipper on the pillow and it looks really fun!
I was then inspired to make these felt flower pillows to pull together my brown, red, and gray in my living room. Mine are certainly less perfect than hers, but I am satisfied.
