And so it Begins...

Where we live in Denver, we received over 2 feet of snow! I am very excited (because I don't have to be driving in it!!) and Emmory just squeals with delight when she plays in it! It is so fun to see her face light up. More pics of her in the snow to follow.

Car Seat Blanket

Have you heard of this before?! They are so adorable! It is a blanket that you put into the car seat, pull the straps through and snuggle your bundle! It was so easy to make, and quick too. I just made the pattern up so if you are interested, email me and I can tell you the dimensions that I used for this.
*Yes, I realize that all of my posts are about babies and food lately, but that's was happens when you have babies and are pregnant. Bear with me, I am sure there will be an interesting post to come along before too long...
