Friday Pictures - Hold on, I have a lot to talk about today!

I WON! IWONIWONIWONIWONIWONIWONIWON! Yea for me I finally won something!

Thanks to the ladies at Pinks and Blues...I won their Hanes giveaway contest.

Also, for all my Wordpress friends...I tried all day yesterday to leave comments on your blogs...(you and you and you and you....) but I was denied. I have no idea why. But I was there, I promise! And I tried again this morning, and I still can't. Maybe something is up at work...

Crazy Hip Blog Mamas is giving away a stroller. To enter, you have to nominate someone who needs a stroller. And this woman is really, really pregnant. I think she really needs a stroller, what about you?

Okay, now some pics....

Remember when I told everyone about 6 months ago I was making some curtains and this fabulous blogger (who also happens to be my neighbor and her daughter and Ashley are best friends) was helping me (really she did more than help, who knows what they would have looked like without her help) (nevermind, I know what they would have look liked, some fabric in a shopping bag). Anyways, they are done. Well, almost. I have to glue gun some buttons on, but here they are! Aren't they cool? And I didn't pay the $800 not including installation for them that the custom curtain lady wanted to charge me. I think I paid around $250 for the fabric and supplies...


They really complete the room...

Close up (remember, I am not the best picture taker...these pictures don't do them justice!)

Hayden (Ashley's best friend), Ashley and Catalina, another neighbors daughter who goes to school with Ashley also. Silly face time.

I finally put batteries in Ashley's Fisher Price MP3 player...

So then Audrey wanted to listen to some tunes, and since she doesn't have one of those Fisher Price things, she took my Ipod.

"Mommy, the Backyardigans! I hear Pablo!"

My Mom ordered the girls their Halloween costumes, here is Tinker Belle and Tinker Bee. And if you want to order some Disney costumes, go to Disney Shopping.com and use the code PUMPKIN. You get 10% off select items.

How cute are these wings???

Lately, Audrey has become extremely animated. And she has many different faces she likes to show us. This is her mad face....

And this is her attempt at a sad face...

Ashley had to get in on the action. This is her mad face, but honestly I think she looks constipated.

Okay, I think I have covered enough ground for one post...have a great weekend...

Wow. Audrey is getting so big! I love ashley's mad face. I'm afraid to order costumes already. Ally changes her mind 50 times before Halloween, so we always end up shopping late. I love your costumes.

Kellie said...

LOVE the curtains. They're gorgeous!!

The girls' costumes are adoreable...I have no clue what Morgan will be.

Morgan and Audrey would be great friends :)

Congratulations personally from Pinks & Blues! My granddaughters LOVE the Hanes!

And I LOVE, obviously, the name Audrey. My Audrey is 29 years old and has loved her name since she was old enough to say it (of course I love "Ashley" and "Jane" too!).

Wonderful, happy photos!

The level of detail in your valence is PHENOMENAL! I made curtains once, they were giant rectangles. Luckily, that's what I set out to do. What's your next project?
