Random Mish-Mash of Pictures

Adam and I recently became owners of iphones...and one of my favorite things was the colorful (and girly) cover I chose. (ha!...I am so easily pleased!)
I bought Taylor a dry erasable table & chair set for her birthday...and these were some pictures Tori drew on it...
Oh what was that you said? You want to see pictures of my adorable nephew? Well...

...okay! That is a request I can grant!
Happy Monday! Amber

Because of You Wedding Two-Page Layout

Just a quick post (sorry for the less than stellar photos) with a page I made a year ago about how thankful I am that both sets of our parents have Godly marriages and have stayed together in a world that is so full of divorce. It is such a testimony to the sustaining power of God!
Have a great day! :) Amber

How to Make a Baby Football Onesie

This was the post I hinted at a few days ago...I made baby Barrett a little football onesie.

Here's what you'll need:
1. Paint (I used Martha Stewart's AMAAAZING paint that can be used on literally any needs a whole post of it's own!...anyways, I used a white colored paint...I think it was high gloss variety)
2. A foam brush (I get mine on Michaels super sales - 20 brushes/$1 and keep them on hand for projects such as this!)3. Masking Tape - mine was about 1" wide.4. A plain brown onesie - I used a Rabbit Skins brand onesie from Hobby Lobby @ 40% cost about $2.50.
I don't have the inbetween pictures (well, I have some but they're in RAW format and not easily accessible to me right at the moment)...but basically, I masked off the long strip first and painted and let it get semi-dry, then CAREFULLY peeled off the masking tape and then masked off the little strips (taking the masking tape just up to the painted part - not covering any of the painted parts) and painted the little strips.

And let it dry! And then you have something like this...
Awwww! It's a little football Barrett...
And a Nebraska picture!
And this unrelated one...just because it's so cute....!!!
The End! Email/comment with any questions...I will try to post better inbetween shots in the futures! Amber

Princesses on the Playground

A few weeks ago, I took Taylor & Tori to a playground near their house...they were in their princess dress-up costumes...and it was too adorable to NOT take a million pictures of it...!!
Can you see Tori & Taylor??
Please...let me go play again....
I love these two cuties!
Happy Monday! Amber

Blast from the Past

A few vacation pictures from May 2009...this was a FUN vacation. Super laid back & relaxed @ Callaway Gardens...
A family of ducks...
We were like the duck paparazzi. They were so cute...although they FIERCELY did not like us getting too close!
On the way home...why, yes, that is Adam fishing on the dock...!!!
Also, I remember it was a trip with good hair days. Haha! :)
How I love looking back through old pictures! Especially of vacations!

Florida State Footbal...

Adam & I are Florida State fans...obviously, that's not really anything to be proud of this season...ha?...but I took these pictures before we lost three games, and they're too cute not to post.

Mr. B & Uncle Adam:
Uncle Adam is a little exciteable when it comes to football games:
Barrett doesn't know how to react to all the excitement...
But he figures it out with a little help from Uncle Adam:
With Auntie Amber too!
He decides he's not too keen on having crazy pom-pom hair...get it off...please.
And, really, even after Uncle Adam teaching him how to cheer for the Noles, he's still not sure what all the yelling is about...
But don't worry, we are sure he will learn soon enough!!

With Mommy...
I bought him a cute little Florida State onesie AND a Nebraska onesie at the collegiate store in our local mall. Because Barrett's Daddy is a Nebraska fan, and in spite of Auntie Amber posting looooots of Florida State pictures about Barrett, she is actually trying to remain sortof unbiased about Barrett's football fanhood and buys Nebraska AND Florida State attire evenly for baby Barrett.

If Auntie Amber had pictures of Barrett decked out in Nebraska gear, she would post them know, for the sake of being unbiased...and because Barrett is so cute in whatever he wears. But she doesn't have any...yet. To be continued?

The end.

Handmade Birthday Cards

Some birthday cards I've made recently for two co-workers!
I always try to make matching envelopes!
I love the colors on this one...
Number three...
And, finally:
I probably should make these cards into four posts considering my lack of posts, but alas...I'm doing them all together! :)

Hope you have a great day today!! Amber
