22 : : Good, Clean Fun!

Posted on July 22nd, by Amy in My kids, photographs. 19 comments

I saw on a blog somewhere last week, about a feature in Family Fun of these fun bubble creations! Yesterday we put them to work inside :)

I have no mop, just a steamer for cleaning floors, our air has been out :( so I have put off cleaning the floor more than usual. The girls were enthusiastic to help, and even mop it up with cleaning towels when we were done. And yes – I was even sliding around in my shorts! Just beware to not slide too much if you try it – Ella has skinned knees today.

Somehow they all found themselves on the swings at the same time :)

The huge slide! Owen went down a few times, then froze up at the top and I had to go rescue him. The stairs are much worse on the way down!—————————————-

After basting my quilt on the floor – we got all the blankets from the other room to build a fort! Kept them busy for a little while :)

Love the look on Owen’s face – it says it all!

6 : : To Do

Posted on July 6th, by Amy in My kids, photographs. 15 comments

Last week the girls and I sat down and made a list for them to do each day before they can play outside. It works! Having them help decide the chores and then able to check them off themselves, makes them want to do it :) And helps me out too!—————————————-

Our weekend in pictures

Posted on June 29th, by Amy in My kids. 20 comments

I hope you had a good weekend! We had been promising the kids a little pool, but had to wait for it to warm up enough. They had a great time in and out of the pool – getting the water nice and dirty! Oh well :)Owen loves being in the water, I have to drag him out – even if the water is cold and making him shiver.

Lots of fun family time.

A little gardening – finally ready to start eating some of it!

A little binding, with my feet in the kiddie pool – of course!

That’s about it for our weekend! What did you do?

Also, do have a question for me? Any sort of question, I’m willing to share – just ask!

Blessings to you ~

Amy

It would seem I’ve been absent more than present here lately. . . and my creative time has been out the window, but I have good reason!

Saturday morning we packed the kids up andwent camping! Our plan was to be gone two nights, but the second night had some serious storms in the forecast. Joe and I ended up taking down the tent in the midst of a crazy hail storm – thankfully the kids were safe inside the truck :) We opted for more sleep at home, instead of the lightening/thunder night that was predicted.

We had a great time over in Dinosaur! The kids love to collect rocks, and poke sticks in holes to see who lives there. And explore the petroglyphs and scramble the mountain side.

Being in a National Monument means that all … Read More »


My Girlie Girls :)

I got my top done and haven’t touched my machine since! My mind is full of projects, but the sun has finally been shining. Today was a full day with the kiddos, running errands and gardening/weeding! It’s crazy how fast those things grow :/

Ella and I spent some time playing Scrabble while Owen napped and the little girls entertained themselves – Ella’s a great speller, and Scrabble is a great way to reinforce it!Sophia ended up watching us, she seemed to want to chat while I was trying to come up with a word :)Today Ella and Emmalie got haircuts! Both have been ready for a while, but I wanted to make sure they were certain, before heading to the salon. At 5 and 9 these things change quickly :)Aren’t they cute!?I’m hoping that Em’s … Read More »


Quilt Along Progress

Posted on June 11th, by Amy in My kids, quilt-along. 34 comments

I have to admit it – I’ve been overwhelmed by the project I took on. A queen, almost king sized quilt! What was I thinking??

To have a few less pieces to deal with I made 4-patches of my blocks. Great idea! I had decisions to make for each block but not all at the same time, and I did it while watching tv in the evening after the kids went to bed :)

Before I sewed my groups together I laid a few out to get an idea of the final results -

This is a quarter of my blocks, I’m now full of excitement and energy to get it together! For today I’m taking a little break though — I took my machine in for servicing. Thankfully the little shop in town has a 24 … Read More »


Summer Routine

Posted on June 3rd, by Amy in My kids, quilt-along. 33 comments

Our first week without school, is good, but as always working into a new routine makes for a few hiccups in schedules and productivity! I haven’t made as much progress as I had hoped for so far this week but some is better than none! I will get there :)

I’m all organized and ready to go when ever I have the chance to sit. On track to make 110 – 10.5″ blocks – I altered Dana’s design, just a bit :)

This is one of my favorites so far -

Sophia had a great Birthday! Thanks for the well wishes – I think 4 may be one of her most challenging years yet, for me. She’s been very contrary lately, wanting to do the opposite of what she should be doing, or saying. I’m praying it … Read More »
