Checking In

Hi!!  First of all, I want to say we are all okay and doing great!  Y'all are so sweet to email and check on us since I haven't posted in months.  I have a lot of reasons for not posting but nothing really earth shattering.  Ha!  The main reason is that Reagan pulled my camera off the counter back in September so I haven't had a camera (besides my phone) since then.  I haven't done one thing to my house.  I didn't even decorate for fall!  That even shocked me. :)  I am sewing every free minute I have.  We just got really busy this fall with BSF, Mother's Day Out and Awanas.  Those are pretty much the reasons why I am not posting.  But I do post almost daily on Instagram.  My ID is "blessournest" if you would like to follow there!
The wonderful Amber Dickey took our pictures a few weeks ago and I love them!  Westin and Reagan are growing up so quickly!  I cannot believe how fast it goes. 
 This is seriously the only change I have made to our house.  I've been wanting a large window to go over the mantle and finally found one!  Here is the before:

And the after:

Cody and I talked today about re-painting our kitchen, living room and dining room.  They have been the same colors since the day we moved in.  We are ready for a change! 

We got my sewing machine and supplies out of the dining room (finally!) and set up a little corner in the guest room.  I absolutely love going in here during nap time and just sewing away.

Speaking of sewing, here are a few things I've sewn recently.  A baby doll and super hero for Reagan and Westin.  We made these in our sewing group and used a free pattern we found on pinterest.

This is a knot dress with a removable apron.  Reagan will wear it for Thanksgiving with the apron but without the apron after that.

I'm excited for Reagan to wear this outfit around Christmas!

And this dress. 

Thanksgiving shirts for a friend's daughters. 

I didn't leave Westin out.  I made him a turkey shirt.  :)  You can see it on instagram along with many more sewing projects and pictures of our day to day life!

Thanks again for checking on us!  I probably won't be posting on here again anytime soon.  My passion has just moved on to sewing and instagram.  :) 

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
