Does it count?

  • Does it count as alone time if a marble comes rolling under the door while you are in the bathroom?
  • Does it count as a nice bath if the little girl stands by and sings you songs, drives you to the doctor (for a shot) and fills her diaper (smelly)?
  • Does it count as having energy if I can clean up the house (rearrange) but am out of breath then I get to the top of the stairs?
  • Does it count as sleeping in if the kids get up before 6 (on a weekend when we could all sleep in and would never do that on a day when they have to go to school) if they try to be "silent like a elephant mouse" and get dressed?
  • Does it count as a good life if I have all these blessings? YES.

What a wonderful surprise

Gotta love a day when you go to pick up your kid from school and one of the dad's says he will take him for the afternoon. Ada is laying down for a nap and I am going to lay down and see if I can nap or at least read. Hope you are all having a nice afternoon.

He said She said

He said that he liked her Sunday School class better. When I asked him why he said "because she is in it and I like to be with her"

She said her 3head hurt (while rubbing her forehead) when I said you mean your forehead and she said "you call it 4head I call it 3head"

She said that she has to drive me to the doctor (every day) to get a shot. And they she always drives me to get something yummy to eat (well only if I do well with my shot;).

What a great friend.

My friend Kari made this quilt for me. It is so beautiful and I LOVE IT. I cuddled up under it last night as we watched football. And it even has a wonderful little note on the back (which I did not see until today.... sorry Kari). Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!! I LOVE IT.

Here is a close up of the wonderful free motion that she did. Man she is talented.

Here is a quilt that I got done for my friends. They had their baby a couple of months ago and I have been working on this for a LONG time, but now it is DONE.... Buran wanta meet up sometime this week so I can hand it off?

I had fun doing free motion quilting on this and am loving free motion... even when it does not go the way that I wanted it to:)

Some Knitting that I have been doing.

A hat and scarf for me. They are made from baby camel and it is SOOOO soft.

Another hat for me (I want to add a bit more on the bottom of it to make it a little longer.)

A hat for Elijah (one of the 2 I have made, but he is wearing the other one right now.)

One of the two I made for Ada (I can not find the other one right now).

A scarf for someone (can not say who) it is made of cashmere and is soft and warm.

I very late Christmas gift for my Mother-in-law.

And because it just would not be right if I did not put up some photos of the kids (smile). These are from the big snow we got before Christmas.

I am in the snow fort that we dug out (ok mostly I dug out.)

Blogging from the iPod touch

This is just a test to see if this will work. I got new toy for Christmas and I am trying to see all the things that I can do with it.

I am hoping that I will be able to write a bit more offten if I can use this.

Happy New Year!

I know it has been a long time since I have been here. I am missing my little blog (I am hopping that some of you are missing me too;) It has been a long couple of months here. I have been having tests, tests, tests and more tests and we do not know a lot but what we do know is that I has a blood clot and inflammatory arthritis. Why I have those things are still a mystery, but at least we know that much. Anyway enough about that.

We has a wonderful couple of weeks. My parents come back to help out and spend Christmas with us (it is the first time they have ever been at our house for Christmas and it was very special). My Dad brought a bunch of old coats that he has been nagging me FOREVER to make into a quilt. So we worked on it while he was here and this is how it turned out. I think it looks nice and it is done!

Well now I have to go. I will try and write again tomorrow. I have so many stories and photos to share that I will never have enough time for all that, so I may just be sneaking them in here and there:)
