First day back

A good friend of mine gave me some advice when he heard I was pregnant. He said "Enjoy it because it goes fast, the days are long but the years are short." Today is my first day back to work... it feels like they were born yesterday, where has the time gone???

I'm posting these pictures because they make me smile and I think it's exactly what I'll need when I'm sad.

Crafting Ladies

Thank you Karen and Courtney for watching the girls while I made the "keep your grubby hands off my kids" cover. It was so nice to take an afternoon and craft, I couldn't have done it without you both. Thanks!!

The "keep your grubby hands off my kids" cover

I've noticed that perfect strangers feel the need to come up and touch the girls. When it happens I always feel a little uncomfortable. Can I say, "Please don't touch my kids. I don't know where your hands have been?" Well, if you are me... no you can't say that - not even in a polite way. But what I did do is craft up a "keep your grubby hands off my kids" cover.

Here's a close up of the fabulous model, Amelia.

And I couldn't leave out the pups. Grandpa Del and the dogs are best friends. As Grandpa Del always says ""In order to have a good picture, you gotta have a good subject."

Thanks for a great day, we hope to see you guys soon!
