Posted by Hope at 7:14 AM 0 comments
Here are some photos from our camping trip. We had a great time. It RAINED on us all morning Saturday!!! The sun finally came out and we went fishing (caught alot of perch!) and then went Geocaching. Had brisket for dinner .. YUMMY! Made some ice cream, smores, and popcorn. It was a great time... the boys each invited a friend... Rik duck taped Shelby's friend to a tree.. it was soo funny.

Weekend Plans

So, this weekend we are going camping. We will be going to someone's deer lease, it's on 380 acres and has 3 stocked ponds ! This is a camping trip with some people from Rik's work. I let the boys each invite a friend since most of the kids that are going are more Hayley's age than their ages. We get to take Delphi also, which is great :)

The past week

Posted by Hope at 6:51 PM 0 comments
Well, the past week and weekend have been a bit preoccupied. I decided we won't be buying a house yet ... I want to wait till I have a job mostly. I also want to make sure we won't be moving again... make sure hubby is retiring!!! I have also decided to get both the boys tutoring.. which is going to cost me some big bucks .. but it's much needed as they are both really struggling !!!! I really wanted to work on my quilt this weekend, but it seems Saturday I did laundry, watched HGTV and DIY all day. Today I did get some squares sewn... but now they are not squaring up ... I decided to look at it tomorrow and maybe I will be able to figure it out !! Me and Hayley made Gorilla bread today ... it was SOOOO yummy !!!!

That was about it. I am hoping to get some real things accomplished this week ... we will see how it goes !

This is the quilt I am currently working on. There is a picture of the fabrics I am using and a sample of what it will look like. I choose fun fabrics and patterns cause I am going to give it to Hayley.

When Hayley was about a year old, I got the fabric to make this quilt. I still have not made it. I plan on making it at some point this year :)

An ADD moment ...

I sat at the table to start cutting more fabric for the quilt when I see Hayley’s easter basket and remember I have to hide it in the closet.  I take it to the closet and see all my fabric I neatly folded the other day on the floor and think I should make Hayley’s pillowcase.  I come to the computer and google pillow case pattern.  Then see my fave button for Facebook and click it... see a friends cute new baby... awwww !  Read up on friends statuses.  What was I doing ???  OH yea... working on the quilt... I go back to the table and realize what I did ... and think ... I should Blog about this ... LOL

Obvioulsy I didn’t take my medicine today ... LOL
