A while ago, I was able to see my cousin! She lives in Canada and I don't get to see her very often, so I do love it when she comes to visit. She really is superwoman! She has two adorable little girls who are so great. I loved spending time with them and I just can't wait to see them again. 

While they were visiting, I loved taking pictures of them...they are just too cute not to. Don't you agree? :)

This little one is quite the talker and there is never a dull moment.

The younger girl was a little more shy and took some time, but finally warmed up to us. 

We spent this day up there and were also able to go up for Halloween! Did I mention my cousin is a superwoman? I wasn't kidding...the little ones were dressed up, but she just went as herself with her ladybug and snow bunny. 

It was so much fun and I am truly grateful for them. I can't wait to see them again.

Over a MONTH!!

I can hardly believe it's been over a month since my last post! I knew it had been a while, but I didn't think it had been that long! Wow, I guess I've been kind of busy. 

But guess what? That is just about over. Woo hoo! I just have one take-home final to finish, then I am home free for over 3 weeks. This is one thing that I love about college...we get awesome breaks; at least as an undergrad. It really is the best. 

Well, since it has been so long, I just decided to show you a quick post of the outfit that I mad for my best friend's little guy. He is over 2 months old now and just a little cutie. He still doesn't quite fit into this outfit, but it is definitely one of my favorite gifts I have ever made. 

The first thing I made was the bow-tie onesie. It was pretty simple and I love the bow tie! I made the bow tie out of some navy blue cotton and found the onesie at a yard sale for 25 cents! I just attached the bow tie directly onto the onesie.

After the top was made, I worked on the bottoms. I found some boy slacks (size 12, I think) at a thrift store for a couple of dollars and just used the bottom of the legs to make these little pants. I drew out a pattern to be 6 months (the same size as the onesie), put the legs together, and made a simple elastic waist. 

The last thing I made was the shoes. I technically made them very first, but they didn't turn out quite right, so this second pair was made after the above outfit was made. They turned out just right and I adore them!

The top flap is held down by a little square piece of velcro. I sewed the button on last to cover most of the seam from the velcro underneath. 

Like I said, this little outfit is one of my favorite gifts yet!

I can't wait to see him wear it.
