We managed to get to the Dia de Los Muertos altars in the Mission. We stayed until it got dark and then I made a special feather for Sadie for this amazing sculpture. The pastels glowed gorgeously on the matte black paper. There were hundreds of people creating so many beautiful feathers to add to the bird. We didn't get a chance to go back and see the sculpture after it was filled with feathers but it was getting there quickly. The pictures don't do it justice because you can't really tell the scale but it was a lot bigger than it looks in the photo. This was definitely my favorite altar; what a brilliant idea!
I have a few small updates from the past month coming up in the next few posts. Then I will hopefully have their six month post ready! I can't believe they are already six months old! Here are a few from their first Halloween. I sewed them some little garden gnome costumes the night before (since that's all the time I had). I used a little onesie for measurement. Oops, they came out a little small since I didn't account for the stretching of said onesie once it's on baby.....

It has been exactly one year since my beautiful Sadie passed away. Although the house is no longer quiet her presence is deeply missed. I have slowly been working on a video of my own but it is very emotionally challenging so until then I hope you will enjoy this beautiful little video that my sister made for me last year in honor of Sadie. I miss you so much beautiful girl it seems like an eternity since I have seen you.... my heart is with you always.

I have been around the sun one more time and this time we celebrated with a little afternoon party. Drinks, food, and laughs were had. I always love the day after when the house is still, in the early morning, and I can take some time to quietly remember the day.

Wow, how time flies. I am trying to keep up with this blog regularly but it is quite hard to find the time! I am realizing if I want to get any posts done it is going to have to be late at night. Posting might be a bit sporadic until I get back in to the swing of things but I will do my best! Here's a sneak peak of Arrow and Jasper from yesterday. I'm working on some photos of their first three months that I will be posting soon. Plus I might fit in peeks of their nursery and a before/after of our bathroom redo....stay tuned!
