A whole bunch of unrelated stuff!

My baby started pre-school! He loves "Ms Cindy" and he had a blast on his first day, I was all sad to leave and he is like "bye mom"

Austin and Miranda started school today they are going to a new charter school, they have to wear uniforms Austin didn't mind but Miranda wasn't to sure about the whole idea. She is going to learn the flute and she desided she wanted to cut her hair so she didn't look like all the other girls around here. She looks just like I did when I was her age except she is so much taller (I was so totally short until I hit high school)

Wade got a "Wade size sewing machine" he is so cute with it.

He is getting good too!

You are a 1960s Diva

I could have told you that!

Apron Swap block!

Aren't they fun! I am in a swap with 16 other gals to make adorable apron blocks. I am hoping to make mine into a wall hanging for my kitchen. I made 4 each of each of these designs. I usedmy 40's vintage fabric and the white rick-rac is also vintage.
I will have to show it to you when they all come. Have a great week (kids go back to school :O) )

What sort of martial arts has you wear a skirt?!?

Okay its not really a skirt but it looks like it!
My sweetheart and my older two kiddos are starting aikido classes tonight. All the pictures you see show people being thrown around but from what I understand its much less about self defence and more of a "zen" thing.
I don't get it but then I don't have to do it soooooo I will just take my baby (can you hear him screaming I am 4 I am not a baby) and go do something fun while they go play in their pj's.
I only hope that DH remembers he has a bad back and needs to be EXTRA careful or my next blog post will be embarrassing pictures of him writhing in pain while we try to get him in for back surgery.

It must be time for a give away...

So when I got on to blather on today I found that my last post was #200 WOW!!

So leave me a comment and I will put your name in the drawing, put it up on your blog and I will put your name in 5 more times. I will draw for the winner on Friday.
Best of luck :O)

Its been a busy few weeks...

Its my only excuse for being such a slacker posting to my blog.

I am almost healed from my tonsil adventure, As someone that has had more surgery than I care to count I do have to place this up there in the top 3 as one of the worst.
I am so behind not just her on my blog but I also have thank you cards to send, quilt blocks to make for swaps that will be ending soon, I need to pay bills and my toilets are dirty! SIGH!!!
Don't tell my grandma about the toilets she will want to come back to my house and clean them for me. She stayed for a week after my surgery and I thought her and DH were going to strangle each other, not to mention I have about a million stairs in my house and she is 87 I was sure she was going to drop dead one day walking up all the dang stairs, (hell I thought I was going to drop dead walking up the stairs and I'm not even 40 yet!)

So I wore myself out at Lagoon ( for those of you out of the state of Utah Lagoon is the one and only amusement park here in Utah, it has some pretty good roller coasters but its no 6 flags)
I think my poor DH thinks he is married to a 14 year old not been married 14 years LOL!!
I guess I better get my butt in gear and get those toilets clean before grandma finds out!

14 years!

I can hardly believe I have been with my sweet Mike for 14 years, Its our anniversary!
We are going to Lagoon and pretending we are 16 year olds dating. I plan to make out on the dracula castle ride and eat junk food and forget I have kids. WOOHOO!!
