I'm Sewing Again!!

It's been a long time but I'm back at my sewing machine again. WOOHOO!! Boy does it feel good. I forgot how soothing is for me. It really is a stress reliever. I whipped up something fast today, trying to get it done before I had to leave for class, and totally forgot about what I really wanted to do. I made some placemats with the intentions of quilting them, and forgot to do the quilting part. They still came out really nice though.

The back of the placemat is just plain brown.

Score one for me!

Winter Break!!

WooHoo!! So I'm out of school for winter break, along with the kids, and I'll be out till Jan 13th. I am too excited about that, my brain could really use a break. I've been super busy getting ready for Christmas though (as I'm sure most of you probably are as well), and then my baby celebrated her 7th birthday Friday before last. I have a project on the table for Justin, the plan is to get it finished before I go back to school. Oh, and we have a new puppy that's giving me fits, his name is Max. We're a big dog family but we rescued Max, who's a Yorkshire or Silky Terrier depending on who you ask, from my mom. This little dog is like having a little baby in the house, he's all over the place. The picture below is a bit fuzzy, and he really looks like a Chihuahua in this pic to me. He had just come from the groomer's getting his hair shaved down super low because he was matted terribly. We tried to keep the shirt on him so he wouldn't shiver too much, but he tore that thing off. It lasted about two days and I can't find anymore in his size. On to a different subject, Justin has graduated from the Bear level in the Cub Scouts onto the Webelos level. Yeah for Justin!! Anaya is a Daisy in the Girl Scouts, super exciting for her, and she'll be selling cookies soon. They start on Dec. 24th, crazy to me with the holiday and everything, but I'm told they always do it that way. And we're not allowed to sell door to door, didn't know that either. Alani is our super reader, reading a new book every couple of days. I love, reading is fundamental! Anyway, that's what's going on in our little world lately. Will be back shortly.

Oh My Goodness!! I can't believe how long it's been since I've posted. Things have been so busy in my world. I'm still taking classes to become a Special Education Teacher. I'm doing various things with the children's schools, as well as their extracurricular activities. I'm actually on my way to take a nap before we go to church this evening. Just wanted to stop by and say hello to everyone. I did manage to sew something while on break from classes. I made a cute fall wall hanging. I'll have to come by and post a pic when I get it hung up. I need to first go by Hobby Lobby and get a dowel rod for the back of it. See you all soon.

Hello everyone! As you know my husband is an Army soldier and was deployed not too long ago. Well, I've been asking him repeatedly if he'll be coming home for RandR. The children and I really miss him and really want to see him. He would reply that it's just too hard on the children and so he would just do his full tour without coming home. He called us on yesterday and of course we were happy to speak to him, it's been a few days since we last spoke to him. Again I asked him if he was coming home, and again he said he didn't think it was a good idea. He then asked me to go look in the garage closet for a book of his and he would call me back in 5 minutes. Okay. So we hang up and I head for the garage to get this book of his. I open the door, and there my husband is, in our garage! What a pleasant surprise!!!

First Day of School!!

Hey everyone, long time no blogging!! Been busy as a bee over here in my world. Something had to take a back seat, and unfortunately blogging and crafting was it. I'm sure we all go through the busy spells at times. Anyway, today is the first day of school for my babies. It feels like our summer has been cut in half, but they did get out of school the end of May so I guess it's time. My oldest will be going to middle school. I am so nervous for her so I've been praying night and day. She wants me to take her this morning and will be riding the school bus after today. Poor baby said she didn't get to sleep till almost 3 this morning. Those first day of school jitters are something else. Meanwhile, my son who is very excited to go back to school has changed his mind about walking and would like me to drive him as well. This of course will make the baby very happy because she really doesn't like walking to school. So, that's a quick note on what we're up to over here. Now I must go make sure the children keep it moving or they won't be leaving on time.
