The kiddos are adjusting to life at home since the school year ended. We are getting into our routine and the sitter is working out wonderfully! It is so nice when things go as planned! :)

My most recent quilt is for the director of the kids daycare. Where Jackson and Hailey both went, and where Jenna will start in the fall. She was diagnosed with a brain tumor and has started radiation in Mayo every week. The kids and teachers placed their hand prints on a two yard piece of ivory fabric. I brought home and turned it into this:

Once again, blogger rotated my photo and I don't know how to change that!
I am off to spend the day with my sister and shop, shop and shop! Whoo-oooo!!!!
Have a great weekend!!!

Amy's Birthday!!!

Happy Birthday to Amy! Yes, my much older sister celebrated her 29th birthday! :) We took the day to visit her at the lake. Here is where I would normally insert a photo of Amy fishing, but since I am such a nice sister, I won't! And because I know she would be really, really mad at me!
Jackson and Hailey had a blast fishing. Well, Jenna did too...the pontoon rocked her right to sleep! Here are some photos of the kiddos....

Jackson fishing with Grandma and Papa.
He practiced casting in the yard before we went out. He cast perfectly the first time!

Hailey and her first and only fish. She decided that one was plenty.

And Jenna. She spent the better part of her day chasing the dog around. All we heard was "My-OOO, My-OOOO." Translation in adult English: Milo.

The Graduate!

Here she is, the newest preschool Graduate! Hailey was so proud. She woke up bright and early at 6am for her big day. (Usually I am tugging her out of bed at 7:30am.) She woke me up with a hairbrush and barrette in hand so she would look nice for her big day. While I was brushing her hair, and trying to open my eyes, she let out a little whimper. On a normal day, this would have lead to a big scream and some tears. But not this time, she just said, "Oh, no more crying for me, I am a graduate now." She then proceeded to tell me how she will only cry when she gets really, really hurt. And then asked if I had finished sewing the buttons and pockets on her dress so she could wear it. So off to sew at 7am! Only a handmade dress will work for this girl on her big day!

During graduation the teachers asked, "What would you like to be when you grow up?" And Hailey's reply, "A Fabric Designer!"

That"s my girl!
