a little bit of everything

So Evie and I are back home in Virginia now. We miss Preston a lot but we are so glad to be home. I was anxious to come home because I have piles of projects I am working on and need to finish so I can move on to another pile of projects. One of my new years resolutions is to make 1 craft each month for my house. Why not right?? It has been fun finding ways to be creative and even more fun making my house feel more like a home each day. I have found myself getting a little crazy though. I say 1 craft a month but it has been more like 4 a month so far. Anyway I am going to try not to get to far ahead of myself for the rest of the year. Here are my month of January and February projects.
month of January

This picture is new so for the month of February I made these orange pillows to match

The other evening I made some cookies and Evie was not going to let me get away without giving her one so I did. She LOVED that cookie! It was so funny watching just how happy that cookie made her. I laughed the whole time. She is so much fun! SO CUTE!!

The other day a friend of ours from our ward gave us a couple new toys! Evie is getting so big and a little bored of her old toys so it was so nice of her to give us some new ones. This is a bouncer. She loves it! She is a good little driver too!! Look how happy she is! Melts my heart!

Evelynn is also already a little ham. The second I pull out the camera shes all smiles! She is crawling now so whenever she hears the camera turn on she turns and crawls right towards it! She is getting so good at crawling and it is keeping me on my toes! She also loves Tonka even more now. He is her number one toy. She crawls over to him, pulls his hair, pokes his eyes and tugs on his ears, which are always sore to begin with, before she decides to take the toy he was playing with away from him. He is so good with her though and very gently gets his toy back. Unfortunately for Tonka he only keeps it for a couple mins until she can crawl back to where he is and take his toy again. They are so cute together!

Valentines Day

We had a very low key Valentines Day this year. Preston is doing some more training in Alabama right now so Evelynn and I have spent the last 3 weeks out there with him. Needless to say, our V-Day was pretty much just dinner. We went to Texas Road House, super early so we didn't have to be there through the rush. Then went back home and ate the cheese cake I made for Preston earlier that day. He loves cheese cake!! We have so much fun just hanging out with our little girl. We were saying just the other day that we know we should probably go on dates without her more often, but we both like it when she is there so much that it's hard to make the effort to find a sitter!! She is so fun to be around!

And this is just a funny picture of our silly baby! She looks so cool huh! How could you not want to spend a whole day with this!! :)
