Presidents Day fun

On Presidents day the kids and I joined my sister, her kids, my mom, my sister's friend and her two kids for a trip to the Arizona Science Center. Everyone had a good time and it was a nice way to spend a day off. Unfortunately Abbie was not feeling well after lunch and we had to leave early, but we still got to see alot.

Killing two birds with one stone

Abbie needs a new quilt to celebrate her big girl bed. Fortunately for me her big girl bed is toddler sized so that shouldn't be too huge of an undertaking. I have decided to kill two birds with one stone with this project since I have wanted to make a quilt out of my huge 30's repro stash for quite a while. I want to make this completely out of stash since I am trying to build up my emergency fund and buying anything that is not a need has pretty much been put on hold. Here are two groups of coordinates that I have pulled. I am partial to the second grouping, since I like purple and yellow together. I think that that group needs one more color to be a really nice quilt. I like the first group too, and I like that this group has a larger color palate. What do you think? I still haven't decided what pattern I am going to use.

Vallentines Day Fun

The kids and I had a great Valentines Day this last weekend. Since several on my friend's husbands were not available on Saturday and since I am newly single we decided to have a kids party instead. We went over to H's house around 10:30 where we were joined by L and B. The kids had a great time helping to cut out and decorate sugar cookies. The mommies had a great time eating sugar cookie dough! After lunch Alex, Abbie and I left for nap time and then we met H and P at church. After church we went back to H's house for dinner and cookie eating. The kids had a great time and got to use their new aprons that I made as a Valentines day gift for them.

Call me Tom Sawyer

Every time I vacuum the house the kids fight over who gets to help vacuum. So when I saw a small lightweight vacuum on sale the day after Thanksgiving for $10 I knew that I had to get one as a Christmas present. Now the kids vacuum the floors for me and they think that they are playing with a really cool toy!

Sleeping Kids

Why is it I always want to take pictures of my sleeping kids? Last week Abbie got a new (to us, Thanks L!) toddler bed. She was so happy to get her new bed, and now she doesn't have to climb out of her crib anymore when she wants to sleep in my bed in the middle of the night. Recently I put the Mickey Mouse play tent up for the kids. Alex decided that he wanted to camp out in the tent so he has been sleeping in there.
