A To Do List & Drama

Posted on August 18th, by Amy in My kids, work in progress. 24 comments

Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to complete the survey – lots of great info there, and it is helping to get me even more excited for the Fall Quilt Festival! If you haven’t done it yet – I would love to have your input too!

Our weekend was a little dramatic – on Sunday our Emmalie was spinning on her foot in the kitchen, with a cup in hand, when she slipped and fell – face first. It happened so fast! She was in immediate pain, and bleeding, I was the one dressed so we scooped her up and ran to the hospital. Thankfully it is just 5 minutes away. In the end she has 4 stitches on her bottom lip and chin – but owie! That is a painful spot … Read More »

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 »
