Tikatuly Designs Tiya Tunic Dress

I was given the opportunity to test another pattern.  This one is the Tiya Tunic Dress from Tikatuly Designs.  If you are looking for a simple pattern with a ton of options to personalize, then this is the pattern for you.  At first, I found all the options a bit overwhelming, but once I was able to figure out what I wanted to do, it was great.

I choose to do the back to back pleats on the front with lace neck band and tie and a lace elastic waist.  I love the vintagey look to it.


I don't know what Eleanor was doing here, but I had to share.  It reminds me of Marilyn Monroe.

This week was much of the same, except I caught this picture of my grandpa reading to my girls.  Can't get much better than that.

I only got a couple cell phone pictures this week.  Still busy and not fast enough with my camera.

I love seeing the girls playing with their aunt and uncle more.

On Valentine's Day, the six of us went grocery shopping, so this was my view for most of the day.

This safe was at one of the store we stopped at.  It was so huge, I had to get a picture of the girls in front of it.

This week has been crazy busy.  Unpacking, organizing, cleaning, remodeling...

Laurel wore her helmet any chance she got and was playing the broom as a guitar while singing and riding the fire truck.

Eleanor spent so much time looking at books.

So often a sleepy baby who refuses to nap.

Hermiston had a crazy amount of snow, which is unheard of.  Michael's aunt and uncle got the girls sleds so they had a chance to use them.  Eleanor had a blast!

I'm a little late posting today, because we loaded the rest of our belonging into a trailer and left our house for the last time.  It was a bit sad, but we know "God has a plan."

I've noticed that Eleanor tends to play with toys a lot with her feet.  She also uses them to hold books.

Laurel is such a good helper.  She loves helping me fold hand towels and wash clothes.  This week she also learned how to fold her pants.

I just had to post this picture of Michael.  Luckily, I was inside the house, taking the picture through the window.

We took this as we were leaving.  Bye, Camp!  We will miss you so much!
