Busted Lip

Before (Earlier this morning) :

After (after her bath, after I could get the ice away from her mouth) :

At first I did not realize she had busted her lip. She fell facing away from me. I thought maybe she hit her head a little, but it did not look like it hurt that bad. I thought, "oh tired girl, maybe a little shook up from the fall." I picked her up, calmed her down and then realized her lip was bleeding. Poor girl. She liked carrying around her ice. When she saw the blood on the wet paper towel, she called it "strawberries." Funny.

Naturally she also did a lot of this.. She is a snuggle girl. (phone picture)

She found a pacifier... and decided she liked it... She called it "mouth." 
So cute to me! Oh, how I love her! :)

'Weekend' Project

Here is what we worked on this weekend. :) It was really just a 2 afternoon project. We do not have the frames filled with our pictures yet, at least not all of them. But I am pretty proud of our work, so I wanted to go ahead and show it off. 
This is something we have wanted to do for a while. We have collected these frames over the past year or so. While watching HGTV, I saw a tip about hanging multiple frames or artwork. 
Here is the tip. (In my opinion, it worked beautifully.) 
1. Lay paper on the ground, and arrange the frames/artwork on the paper like you want them. 
2. Then make marks on the paper where you want the nails. 
3. Tape the paper to the wall. 
4. Hammer the nails through the paper. 
5. Take the paper down, tearing around the nails. 
6. Hang up the frames. 
7. Voila! Step back and admire. 
This may not be revolutionary for you, but it sure made my life easier today! This project still took a lot of measurements and time. It was a lot easier to make those measurements on the paper than trying to do that on the wall. 
I used craft paper that is about the size of wrapping paper. I needed two strips of paper for the height of the arrangement of frames. I taped the two pieces together, and I used the bottom of the lower paper as the level part. Can you tell I am impressed with Ryan and myself?

I'm back.. hoping to be at least! I am pregnant and have had some seriously not fun nausea going on since JANUARY! ugh..  Anyway that is my excuse for taking a break from posting. So to this post. - We took a family trip out to Phoenix, AZ to see my in-laws at the beginning of April. It was a really fun trip. Adley is in love with her Grammy and Papa. She had a blast with them and so did we! We do not see them enough! 
The first day we were there, we went to the Phoenix Zoo. It is a really nice zoo. 
Here are a few pics: 

The last day we were there, we went on a scenic drive to Tortilla Flat. Tiny little town with population: 6. 

Notice the cute little dog purse that her Grammy bought her. :) Fun stuff! Fun time!
