WordPress and I are not getting along as of late.

It just won’t let me do what I want to do. I’ve never been able to design this blog the way I wanted to and so I’m moving back.

Back here.

I know what your thinking…I never blog anyway. But I would like to change that soon. I’ve been a little obsessed with Facebook for the past year, along with everyone else. And while I love popping in to read everyone’s quick status, I miss the stories, the photos with explainations, the personal stuff.  I miss writing down all the things my kids do so that we can remember them.

We all know I’ll still be on facebook.

You did read obsessed, right? (I’m fully aware it’s not healthy. I’m working on that.)

Alrighty then, I gotta go stop Sara from biting Jena.

No, I’m not making that up.

See you over here.

and just because…

there really are no words…

Just a warning

So I just scanned back through my blog and…well…it’s sad.

I haven’t even posted Halloween pictures!

I really thought I had.

So this is just a warning, I’m about to go back and update.

Sorry for the overload!

Ok, no one faint please!

Yes, I am posting something on my blog!

I keep meaning to blog, really I do. I have several cute things I’ve made lately and some cute kid stuff to brag about but I have a problem.

My camera has died.

I haven’t really mourned it’s lose because I want a new one. But I seriously can’t blog without pictures. Does anyone else have this problem?

This is totally not what I was going to blog about, so back on track I go.

I’m due to have this baby in 5 weeks and I’m nesting.

Like a crazy women!

I’m pretty sure it’s driving Barry insane but after 4 pregnancy’s he’s a pretty smart man and he’s just going with it.  He helped me totally rearrange Ryan’s room today and I’m doing the girls room tomorrow and then I’m on to our room and oh yes, my sewing room, I have big plans down there to go with my new sewing machine that I’m headed out to get today. Woo Hoo!

But here is my dilemma.  I can not for the life of me choose a pattern for this little boys bedding.  If you quilt much you know it’s hard to find great masculine fabric.  There is of course your basic baby fabric’s but I’m not such a big fan of those.  Plus I’m a fabric snob and pretty much refuse to buy fabric at JoAnn’s. It must be from a Quilt Shop, it’s just so much cuter and such a better quality AND the women at quilt shops can actually cut your fabric straight so you get what you paid for.  I shouldn’t even get started on the cutting skills of JoAnn employee’s.

So here is your job-

Look at the following photo’s.  Imagine them in Boy colors.   And tell me which pattern is your favorite.

They are all pretty basic patterns and the one with circles I am considering making into stars but I just can’t decide.

Pattern 1 – Made by very talented Natalie at Piece N Quilt.

Pattern 2 – I sure wish I could remember where I got this photo and give credit but I don’t.

Pattern 3 – Made by Camille over at Thimble Blossoms.  I don’t think there is anything she has done that I don’t like, right down to how she decorates her house and is addicted to her caffine. :)

Pattern 4 – This one I really don’t know who made it. I saw it on flicker and the rest of the room was so perfect I just wanted to move in.

In case you’re wondering I’m leaning toward Camille’s quilt and the bumper pads from number 4.  But I oh so love the circles and you all know how much I love me some stars! See I can’t decide.  Help!

My claim to fame

Well, not really.

This is my cousin Jasen’s newest commercial.  He’s done several and it cracks me up everytime.  He’s the first one you see, he sort of looks like Brad Pitt.

I have no clue why I’m sharing this.

I’m apparently very board.

Or just totally wasting my time on the internet.

It’s not like I don’t have at least 12 other projects to be finishing up.

It’s download the pictures on my phone day.

Which mean completely random posts.

Aren’t you excited?


Jena after eating her ice cream sandwich.

She cracks me up.


The only pictures I have of the first day of school.


I went back to Ry’s classroom and made him come out for a picture.

He was not pleased.


Just a randomly cute picture of Sara.


About a month ago Granny, Teri, Sara and I all went to lunch and had a girls day.

Sara picked up this purse from Teri’s house and insisted on taking it everywhere we went.


It was so cute but she didn’t want me taking her picture.


This one is the best, you can just see the attitude in her walk.

I just found this great coupon for Huggies so I thought I’d share it with you all.  I don’t know about you but I’m pretty much a Huggies Snob.

Anyway it’s $2 off any Huggies diapers and doesn’t expire till 12/31/09! Woo Hoo!  Best of all it, it is a pdf, meaning you can print as many as you want!

If your not familiar with printing coupons, you can print it in black and white, just don’t photo copy it because chances are it won’t scan at the store and then a lot of store won’t accept it if it’ doesn’t scan.

Yay for cheap…er diapers!

He Hates getting his haircut.

Hates it.

When he was about 2 I thought for sure he’d eventually out grow it.

I thought.


Meet Pete and Repeat.

Bet you can’t figure out which is which.

They think it’s great entertainment.


Oh, the torture!

Actually it really does look itchy.

I don’t feel bad.

It’s about the only thing I can think of that boys have to go through.

Sheesh! Try being a girl for a day!


Much happier to be doing it to someone else.

Especially when he can make him look like Bozo the Clown.


She takes the job much more seriously.

Don’t ask me about her hair however, it is a thorn in my side.

In fact it is complete chaos and if you look up synonyms of Chaos it says…

A Holy Mess

I couldn’t have said it better myself!


Would you look at that!

A Smile!

Because now he remembers that he doesn’t have to comb it and it won’t be so sweaty in his football helmet and because it looks ‘pretty cool’.


Aren’t those teeth the best!

They crack me up.

Then I remember my own pictures at this age and I shudder.

He’s gonna hate me for this picture in about 10 years.
