Its finished!

I am not a quilter, but I have always wished that I was. I started this quilt back in February at my mom's house (where I could raid her fabric) and finally just finished tonight (hand stitching the binding is hard! My fingers really hurt!) This is a ragged squares quilt for beginners and its not perfect and puckers everywhere, but since I made it, I love it almost as much as a third child. I would like to dedicate this to Jenny, Chante and Angie, the stalwart members of the sewing club (may it rest in peace). I now want to make one like this but I don't think my skills are quite there yet.

I finished crocheting hats for a bit, and am now thinking of new projects for some new babies, but I haven't been inspired yet. They all live in warm climates! I will think of something.

Skate or Die!

Its mostly just funny to watch. Kids falling all over the ice. But I love it.

Good bye October

This has been a nice month adjusting to playing with two cute boys all day. Here is what we have been up to last month. We played superheroes (GJ isn't quite a fan)

Painted pumpkins (GJ is REALLY into drawing and painting, SM lasts less than 5 minutes)
Running errands and refusing to take naps (he really fell asleep the whole time at the grocery store. Looks comfy!)
Going to parks
Seeing conference and MoTab
Being silly.
Painting pumpkinsPainting rockets
Rocket launch

Preschool Halloween party, very cute!
Highlight of Halloween night might have been chasing this cat.
My cute fireman and shark.

This month is starting out warm so luckily we are able to keep our park routine (for now), looking forward to ice skating lessons and Thanksgiving! Let me know if you have any toddler/preschool craft ideas for November.
