Taylor got a new bike for Christmas. She loves going for bike rides around the block. We still have to push her up the hills, but she said, "Mom, I think I am starting to build muscles, so I won't need you to push me anymore!" She says some pretty random but funny things. Hopefully she will soon learn how to ride it without the training wheels!

Meet our pet Cinderella ( I bet you can guess who named her!) Cinderella was adopted on January 25, 2011. We just adore her, she is a tri-color Guinea pig. Her face is black, her belly is white and the end half of her body is a carmel color. I would say she is kind of cute! She loves it when Taylor holds her and plays with her in the hall way.
Cinderella even loves to eat Cucumber right out of your hand. When we let her run around she always seems to end up finding Taylor's lap. We are glad to have her in our family!

For Mother's Day I had asked Mark for a sewing machine, why on Earth would you want a sewing machine.. You have never used one, your right I have never used one, it is time to start! So on my birthday I decided I was going to make my first quilt. I love the color GREEN! It is such a bright and cheerful color. I went to a local fabric store in town and found a quilt they had hanging up. I fell in love with it. It was lime green, black and white. I had to have it, so I bought the material and was on my merry way. Little did I know all the work that was involved in making a quilt. It took me awhile to find how I wanted my pattern to look, after I had it all sewed together I took it back to the local fabric store where I had them QUILT the quilt! I then bought a bright green fabric fro the binding. I hand stiched the binding, so don't look to close or you will see my flaw! I think mine turned out better than the actual one I found in the store!
Now, I want to make another one a king size quilt! We will see what happens!

We had a wonderful Christmas this year! My dear sweet husband gave me and Ipad fro Christmas, I must admit that I am addicted to this wonderful toy! I am sorry to my family for neglecting them while I spend hours of time reading, playing words with friends and running my bakery and my smurf village!
Mark was lucky enough to get a new xbox and a new recliner ( Oh, when I am not sitting in it playing with my IPAD!)
Taylor was super suprised to see she had recieved a bike and a kitchen. Not one but 2 kitchens. Santa brought her one and Grandma Karen gave her a Tinkerbelle Talking Cafe, which she loves. I still have to take a picture of her all dressed up for Tea Time with Tinkerbelle! I promise to have a picture soon!
We are Thankful for all the wonderful family that we were able to spend Christmas with and are hoping next year we might be able to spend it with Mark's family! We will see what happens.
