The kids and I spent spring break in St. George and it was a whirlwind of so.much.driving, sunshine, so.much.gas.station.food, friends, red rock, swimming, sand, fun, and more junk food. I couldn’t wait to buy all the fruits and vegetables when we got home. But we had a blast and I’m already thinking about our next trip to St. George! The red rock is stunning, especially in the spring when they’re scattered with wildflowers and green grass. Thanks for the good times! @melpat511 @hillaryosness @tastethehappyblog @katehulet

The farther behind I get, the harder it is to catch up. But we love going through our #chatbooks all the time, so lll keep at it, even though Easter seems decades away already!neighborhood Easter egg hunt, the twins’ first birthday cake smash, family dinner, and another egg hunt in my parents’ (mid-renovation) backyard.

I was feeling ambitious and overly patient one day last week, so I taught Hailey how to sew! I had the cutest mini charm pack from @evabmakery that was just perfect for a mini quilt. Hailey laid out the squares, sewed the rows, pressed the seams, trimmed stray threads, used a rotary cutter for the border and binding, was a pro with the foot pedal and presser foot. I did the free motion quilting and binding. We did it all in one afternoon, and although that’s a lot of work for a little girl, she loves her quilt and I think she’ll have good memories of us making it together. Here’s to many more mother-daughter sewing projects!

I got to watch my cute nieces and nephews for an afternoon this week and I’m happy to report that they spent some of the time not crying at me. 🏼🏼 But I’m still pretty giddy holding them, even when they’re both crying, because IDENTICAL TWIN BABY GIRLS!!! (I promise I love their brothers and all the other cousins just as much. But seriously! Twins!)

Hailey was a school principal for Career Day – she was very specific about the cardigan, long necklace, and glasses. Her teacher sent me this cute picture with the real principal. Making Grandpa Spurlock proud!
