back from the dead...almost

or maybe i should say, back from arkansas, but its pretty much the same thing. (a side note: i have nothing against arkansas, its actually a pretty nice place, but after being away from my family for a month and a half and living in squalor, it is the very last place i want to be). anyway, so we are almost done. i have to go back again wednesday, but only for four days. we were super busy the last ten day, trying to wrap up, so i didnt make it to the office at all! i was having major internet/email/blog withdrawl! i have a lot to catch up on. collettes birthday party was great! it was so great to spend time with family and friends. poor collette was just catching a cold so she was feeling a little crummy. you can totally see it in the pictures.

i so missed my little girl...

the super cute and yummy palest pink of cakes

collette with her mini cake, she wasnt that impressed!

collette got all kinds of wonderful presents from everyone! so many cute clothes!!! i plan to do a fashion show when i get back. prepare yourselves... she was reallly excited about the sweet vintage books she got from gail and chris.

i managed to get to the fabric store and buy my fabric for the back-tack swap, so i will be mailing that out tomorrow (just a bit late...). i havent actaully made anything in three weeks. i feel so strange. im itching to do all kinds of things, summer skirts being at the top of the list. had a chance to spend some time with the gals saturday night since most of our husbands are on a bachelors weekend in estes park. im super excited because my wonderful friend kristen is moving to kansas city from lawrence next week!!! she and her husband john have a beautiful little girl named margot who is just a two months younger than collette. of course they are already best friends forever. it will be so great to go to the pool and hang out with another mom. a mom who is crafty nonetheless! kristen started a blog! check it out! kristen and her husband are opening a new store, mostly shoes for now, so i expect to spend quite a bit of money there. uh oh... sesame street is almost over and collette is stiring from her nap...duty calls!

So glad you're back! What a grueling travel schedule. I would really hate to be away from a sweet hubby and 2 of the cutest little ones around for that long!!
