Then, I stayed in the "sewing mood" and decided to make a dress for our friends 1 year birthday party...Its a pillowcase dress, complete with matching ribbons and monogram...I think it turned out pretty cute. Maybe I can sell these someday too.
Since I spent so much time sewing this weekend, I also took some time to organize my sewing room....I got a handy little rack for all my thread, and it made me super happy to put it up!!! (I know, its the little things in life!)
I have a bunch of spools of thread that I inherited from my grandmother, who was an avid seamstress. Trev and I noticed that some of her spools had prices on them....this one was 10 cents! How crazy! I wish it still only costs 10 cents for a spool....oh how times have changed! :)
We also decided to start painting the new and much improved front porch. My awesome in laws came over and we had a painting party! With all of us there it only took a couple of hours, which is pretty impressive considering all those spindles we had to paint! Thanks again fam for helping me out! Tim and Uncle Mark also finished the rails, which means that all it's lacking is one more coat of paint before its finished!!! It looks SOOOOOO much better, and I am so impressed with my father in laws abilities!
Of course we had to have some "play time" too :)
Then, our most important day of the weekend was Easter Sunday...we went to church and listened to an awesome sermon on the power of the resurrection! Then, we celebrated with family at my mom's house for lunch followed by a 2nd lunch at Trev's parents house :) Needless to say we were stuffed, but it was well worth it. All the kiddos had a great time hunting easter eggs and hitting the pinata!
One of the "money egg's" hidden by me!!!
One of the kids found a golf ball in the bushes :)
