first "quilt"

I have not given up on my blog. Oh how time flies when you have a toddler and a baby...

Piglet came home the other day from school with a "patchwork quilt" made from construction paper squares glued together. It didn't make it to the keepers box [yes, I throw away my kid's artwork] but did give me an idea.

We made this Valentines "quilt" for daddy while he's been working out of town this week. I cut up fabric scraps into little squares with my pinking shears, stuck rows of double-sided taped on a plain paper, and then Piglet got to work. A few minutes later, her first "quilt" was done. She was so proud. So easy and pretty to look at. You can do this with other color combinations.

Oh, I'm not a Valentines day person but I'm sure there's a lot more Valentines crafts coming. Only because I do love pinks and reds and because I think it's a fun "holiday" for kids. In fact, I'm thinking about making her a real quilt based on this for V-day. A small one, of course.

Professional photos

I've been away too long. Must add some new photos of my babies.

We recently had the girls photographed by Shayne. She was pretty great. We focused mostly on baby since I had wanted to do her birth announcements. But now I feel like she's too big for that. Hmmm, I think I will use these for holiday cards.

Random bits.

Baby [I still haven't thought of a blog name for her] hanging out on the Bumbo chair ::

Her hair is a bit out of control these days. It's funny in a cute way. I almost got her this "Hair-Wolf" one-piece for Halloween. Too funny.

Piglet rockin' out with with one of her favorite friends [we won't be seeing him for a few years.. sniff sniff] ::

Baby is 100 days old [a milestone in the Korean culture] ::

We survived a trip with 2 kids!

It was hardly vacation or anything for my husband and me, but we made it back from our trip to San Francisco to attend my cousin's wedding. Piglet did a great job as a flower girl. Her mama, however, forgot to take a single photo of her. What was I thinking? She looked really beautiful.

Piglet's fave thing whenever we go on vacation? Staying in the hotel room. Whenever we get out to do anything, she says "let's go back to the hotel!" She particularly liked staying at the Westin because of their body pillows with which she made herself into a hot dog.

They get my vote too. I love their beds, truly heavenly. Did you know they have Heavenly Cribs too? Our little one didn't get to experience it but we may have to go back to try it some time. But Piglet got her "I-must-jump-on-the-hotel-bed" fix. Many times over. I really like this shot of her.

After the wedding, we drove down to Monterey and Carmel with my sister for a few days. Carmel-by-the-sea is one of my favorite towns. Everything is still as lovely as I remember it. I think one day I want to go there by myself. Piglet had fun at the aquarium and playing with her auntie at the beach.

Another first for Piglet. She's been wanting to try ice skating ever since seeing Strawberry Shortcake do it. So we went. My husband tried to take her on the ice. But we realized that he needs to stay on his feet first. Not that I'm good at it, but I managed to go around the rink twice holding Piglet up. We had fun but it felt like I had worked some new muscles in my legs.

flower girl.

Piglet is going to be a flower girl. As soon as this dress gets fixed.


I am so thankful that they will always each other ::
