Hi all!!!

Let me start off by sharing these two photos of Moose. This was shortly after we made nice again the day he ate my tasty treats mentioned here. Notice how he is still not making eye contact with me because of his guilty conscious.

Madison is the fine bearer of a first tooth today! It poked through midday.

I can't believe how many new things they do all the time now.

Blake is so close to crawling. He is also starting to get the moving of his feet when I balance his hands with him standing.

This house is a little tutu crazy right now! Below are some pictures of my wedding dress before and after the lower skirt was made into a tutu. I've presented the fine business idea of making tutu's to sell to Judy (great step mama). She loves crafty stuff and could use the extra income. If she doesn't do it, I am so going to do it myself. They are quite fun and relaxing to make. If you want one let me know. We are supposed to take some photos of some different age girls/babies wearing the ones we made this weekend to illustrate our super cute creations. Those will be posted soon. If nothing else I have some cute tutu's to use in my photography business and when Madison gets older to play in.

My pretty and pretty beat up dress. This one is from the front. Boy does it look large the way I am holding it. It is a size 10 for a 5' 10" girl so it really is nice and slim... Really...

Here is the whole front view. I so am two sizes too big for the dress right now or I would have thrown it on for one last hurrah. Like wearing it four times wasn't enough!

The back view with the lovely buttons and long skirt. The train had such a nice 'lie' (can't figure out how to spell it) to it I was actually able to pose it myself for our photos.

My dad holding up the new dress up dress for a photo. I still have to pick out the cap sleeves since a tank style will work better for a little girl to dress up in.

Now for the big tutu made from my wedding dress reveal.

These shots of Madison where we just stripped off her pants & socks during a diaper change to take some photos. It was only 56 degrees or so. Such a mean mommy.

I like the old worn look of this photo.

My cute girl. Not only a cute smile, but the well positioned hands and feet too.

The funky color on this is too funky to be cool, but I still like her in it.

She is checking out a car driving by. Maybe she knew we were waiting for grandpa, grammy and aunt Gracie to drive up anytime.

I would love to know what is going through her mind here. What do you think of her new tutu made out of my wedding dress? It was made big both in length and around the waist so she will be able to wear it for quite a while.

Moose decided to come get in on the action when we moved to the dead grass.

I love this and it's dreamy quality.

Is Moose thinking of eating her next? ha ha

Now for something truly funny.... Check out my boy's big honking side burn! That is quite the side burn for a non dark haired baby.

Dude, did someone forget to tell the other side of his head there should be a side burn there?
I think it is so funny.

I love the pictures! Tutus are so cute on a little girl! I'm impressed with your skills. :) I like the idea of it coming from your wedding dress. My Grandma made my wedding dress and out of the leftover fabric we made a little girls dress and a blessing outfit for a boy. You get some double sentimental value that way. :) Beautiful pictures, as always...

The tutu is so cute!! I kinda want to make one for myself now! Maddy & Blake are getting so big and they are adorable as well. I can't wait to see them next month in Utah!!!

love the tutu and dress! i don't think i'm brave enough yet to cut my dress up i love it so so much! i keep hoping that CJ will be petite like me and can wear it someday. :)

How creative! Your daughter is the perfect model! I once thought I'd use my own wedding dress to make a blessing outfit for my baby, but when I ended up with three, that didn't work out.

Those pictures are so so cute! I loved your dress and am glad to see it will be put to good use! still being a newly wed i couldn't even dream of cutting up my dress, but ask me in a few years!
