A very overdue post

Our last visitors (at the end of January) were Sary and Cal.  But, when he heard they were coming, my dad couldn't resist coming too!  It seems silly to post about something over two months late, but we had a blast, and I want the record for my sake.  So bear with me.

We spent the week . . . 

Playing at the beach

 Eating delicious frozen yogurt
Can you believe that look on his face?  "Um, why is no one feeding me that yogurt?"

Chowing down on Mexican food
Cal went nuts over the re-fried beans and rice.  He couldn't get enough of them!

Exploring Seaport Village
Meow!  That's my very own sexy sailor giving me a smooch.

Taking a harbor cruise
Sam was in heaven to be out on a boat . . . Callum was not!

Enjoying scenic Balboa Park

Gawking at exotic animals in the zoo

And snuggling!  
 Sarah will probably not be pleased with me for putting up this picture, but Cal looked so sweet that I couldn't resist!

This one's for you, Amy!

I have been way out of the blogging loop for awhile.  Amy keeps reminding me to post things for her "sew-and-tell," so I figured it was about time I got my act together.  Here you go, Amy . . . a conglomerate of sewing projects from the past month or so.

First, my nephew turned one!  I decided to make him a birthday onesie (but couldn't resist sending along a little propaganda while I was at it).

Want to see it in action?  Pretty darn cute if you ask me!

I also made this apron for my cousin's birthday.  She is a baker extraordinaire, so I thought she needed another sassy apron for her collection.
She is a good sport and let me take pictures, even though she hates them.  Doesn't she look cute?  Too bad her shirt was the same color as the tie . . . makes it kind of hard to see.  But you get the gist.
