Checking in to share some exciting news!
Today you are going to find me blogging over at Make it and Love it, where I am sharing a fun project you can make WITH your kids. 
This no sew project comes together with just a little bit of sheer fabric and some creativity.  I’ve given you a few ideas with how your child can customize their Elsa cape, and provided instructions for making the pattern shape to cut out your cape.
No sew Elsa cape.
My girls absolutely loved this project, and I am sure yours will too.
But, wait…..I’m not done.
I thought I would share some other exciting news from around here.
Something I’ve been working on for about 9 months.
And it’s one of my best creations yet.
I think I will keep it around for a long, long time.
Introducing . . . . . (drum roll please) . . . . . .
Our little BABY BOY!!!
It’s a whole new world over at our house.
If you follow along with me, you should know I love the color light blue.  After having loads of fun with pink for 3 kids, blue has been a welcome change!
This little guy will not be short on love.
Or cuddles.
And daddy has big plans for his one and only son.
Hunting, football, baseball . . . . . .
Guns, trucks, go-carts . . . . .
But mostly, I think we are both hoping for a little less drama.
Is that too much to ask for?
Is it worth the mud, mess, and dents in my new flawless white cupboards?
Or so I hear these things generally accompany a boy.
But I do believe it will be so worth it.
As the 9 months of misery have already proven to be.
And the blood shot eyes, headaches, sleepless nights, chaos, extra laundry, mental breakdowns . . . .
All so very, very, VERY, worth it.
