Tomatoes and Quilts

First big tomato of the year from the garden!!!!  It has been raining on and off for the last couple of days.... can you hear my garden cheering? :)

This is the next quilt that I am working on... bright right?  They are big and bigger rectangles surrounded by different black and white fabrics.  I have all the colored stuff cut and now working on the black and white ones (OK will be working on).  This quilt is for my mom and dad.... one day they may even get it;)

Well that is all I got in me today.  I am feeling slow today so that is all I can come up with.  Have a great day.

Proud Wife

Look what my husband did this weekend:

At the beginning of the weekend this was just a drawing that he made up and now it is a real thing!!!!  We eat dinner on it last night and it was WONDERFUL!

Me on the other hand did very little this weekend (I guess only one of us can be productive at a time;)

Little girl

My little girl turned 4 this week.  How could it be 4 years already?  Does every ones birthday blogs of their kids start that way?  I am kinda sure they must!

I could have put a million photos up of the past 4 years, but I managed to stop myself (I should do some parenting today right?:)  So here are 3 that I found (the photos almost dragged me into the past I almost spent hours looking at them I had to stop or none of us would have had lunch.)

Tiny tiny Ada (as we called her back then.... man I was sad the day Elijah told me that we could not call her that anymore because she was not tiny anymore (that might have been yesterday.... just saying)

One of her little wonderful smiles.

Just cause.

Now some photos from the party it was a cowgirl/princess party, we had a joint party with a friend of Ada's (Ada was the Princess).

Our 4 year old.

The birthday girls (with the shirts I made for them).

Large group of kids.

Hunt for money in the hay.

Baseball is not going to be her strong point, but she does seem happy:)

OK I might have been a little beat by this point in the party, but I was still loving it.

cupcakes with the best easy frosting the world has ever seen.

Gift opening (note that she does not have that cute 4 shirt on..... see last photo for reason.)

Do not think she is happy.... must do better next year:)

Couple of days later on her real b-day (one of the first things she did with that magical wand was wish mommies hurts away (Man I love that girl).

This doll came from her cousin, he had a hard time picking out a good gift for a little girl (I think he did great).

My princess

Both kids come screaming/yelling up to me today and this is what followed:

Z: Each of you gets to tell me your side of it.  Elijah you can go first.

E: Ada was trying to pull the blanket out from under me and I asked her to stop nicely many times and she would not! Then she said that she was going to tell on me, so I had to come and tell on her first!.

Z: (keeping a straight face) Ada what is your side?

A: Brother (this by the way is what she always calls Elijah and I think it is SOOO cute, Mark thinks she should call him Elijah) was using a mean voice with me and I did not like it.

Z:  (me to Ada) Did you pull the blanket out from under your brother?

A: No.

(I look at Elijah)

E: But she tried to.

Z: Ada did you try and pull the blanket out from under your brother?

A: Yes.

Man we are in trouble in the teen years.

Oh well I will check back in later.....maybe or not.

Shhhhh Do not tell my sister:)

I got her quilt done.  I hand quilted it and LOVED it.  Also I hand did the binding and I will never and I mean NEVER go back to doing on the machine (it just looks SOOOO much nicer done by hand.)

Anywho here are the photos:

Now all I have to do it mail it..... that might take some time:)
