It’s the worst snow storm in over 100 years in our area. They have been playing in the snow like crazy.

I’m definitely not a fabulous seamstress, but thanks to my Mom and my Home Economics teacher in middle school, I can whip out a sewing project here and there. My best friend Jo had a baby boy {his name is Holden…I LOVE THAT NAME!}.  Maybe it’s because I grew up in a tiny town called Holden, so I’m a little biased.  I’m quite proud of the baby boy car seat canopy that I made for her.
