Embrace the Camera….

Last week River and I made homemade tortillas. They were delicious.  I took lots of photos, but then never posted any of them.  Sometimes having twins takes up ALL of my time!  Things get crazy and each day goes by so quickly.  They are almost ten months old…that is crazy!

Three years ago today….my mother died.  I was looking for a nice photo of she and I…..and I can’t find one..at least one that is recent at all.  Another reason why I love the idea of embracing the camera!  I found one from my wedding….but I really wish I had one from my wedding…that was just she and I!!

This Moment….

This moment – A Friday ritual.  A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week.  A simple, special, extraordinary moment.  A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.***

Happy Friday……

***I know I’m not supposed to use words..but I just have to….on the way to the babies 9 month check up….River informed me that she wasn’t feeling too well….once we arrived….got into the waiting room..she promptly threw up all over!!  Then all over the bathroom!!  Poor thing.  This was her in the room.  Well, at least the babies stayed healthy and had a great checkup!!

Summer stuff from winter stuff….

I have so many winter pajamas for the babies…..pajamas that still fit them.  And I had no summer pajamas.  And have I ever mentioned that I got a serger for Christmas??!!  I love it..but haven’t had a chance to use it much.  It is a Husqvarna Viking Huskylock s25 and I feel like I need a degree to use the thing!!  It has a million stitches and it takes forever to learn how to thread the thing.  I just haven’t had tons of time to learn everything on it.  It was purchased at a local sewing shop and the men who work there are useless.  The guy has never used this machine and when I went for a lesson..he was learning right along with me.  So, I don’t think it is worth going for another lesson.  I just need to slowly learn how to use all the bells and whistles.  The can can skirt that I made a couple of weeks ago was my first major project on it!  So, far, all I’ve done is small little things.

So, I had all these winter pajamas…with feet….and I knew the babies wouldn’t fit into them next winter..so I thought..why not cut the feet off and serge the edges!  So, I did just that to all of them…half of them I left long sleeve and the other half I made into short sleeves.

So, now the babies have lots of summer pajamas…for free and I got to use my serger!!  I forgot to take photos of them in their new pajamas..I need to do that for a future post!  Have a great Thursday!
