Then, everytime I would open my sewing hutch, there was this little baggy staring at me...it held a mini Easter egg quilt in it-all cut out, just never sewn. My cousins made them like 2 years ago and my one cousin even went to the trouble to cut mine out for me. So over the last 2 days, I finished that little bugger. I was so excited to use a scrap I got at a LQS for $.50 for the back. So exciting to see the project completed and ready for Spring! Yes, it is 2 years late, but I will just say I am early for Easter/spring this year :)
Since everything was deleted off my computer, I have to install my photo software again, so I can post pictures of all of the fun things I have made/completed the last couple of weeks.
I need to get back to putting away all of the things Santa left under our tree. I will post more about our Christmas weekend soon.

My turkey's have 2 extra feather's-doesn't seem to matter how many times I count and recount and read the directions...I always have something slightly off...oh well, I think I like it with more feathers anyway!

Of course I have to post a picture of the little one-as she insisted she was not leaving the house without her costume. Then once we made it to school she insisted not only did the costume have to be on, but mommy must take a picture of her being a butterfly...how could I refuse...she makes a pretty cute butterfly if you ask me.

Last night the big guy wasn't feeling very well, so he was very upset and unsure of what would happen today if he couldn't go to school. He doesn't do change very well, so it was very hard to reassure him that everything would be ok and we would deal with the issue, if it even was an issue, in the morning. My 5 year old princess, bless her heart, took to peeing in her pants yesterday. I don't know why...if you ask her, she'll say, "I don't know" so obviously not much help. She went on the floor right next to the toilet too, again "I don't know" was the answer I got. Today she was fine... I really think it had to do with the big guy's TSS being here and not having her attention...one can only guess with T. And the the precious wee one...she is missing her daddy desperately. She is a daddy's girl through and through. Bedtime is the worse for her...it's the time she has to really remember that daddy isn't home, nor is he coming home anytime soon. It's so hard rocking her through the screams and cries...it really breaks my heart...to be so young and to not understand. Shoot, I am 30 and have a hard time dealing with the fact that he isn't coming home tonight!
After I got the kids to school today I ran to the store, as I was doing my pumpkin yesterday I realized I had no freezer bags as well as the vegetable oil as I had mentioned yesterday. I got both this morning. When I got home I was sooo tired. The little one and I just laid around watching her favorite, Elmo. It was a nice quiet morning at home.
I had the privilege of meeting up with my sister and nephew, for lunch. It was nice to get out of the house for a little bit. My little one doesn't like me wanting to have adult chats, but none-the-less, it was still a nice time. My sister has been very busy with the local fairs, so it was nice to finally see her and not talk to her through text or on the computer!
Came home, and got the kids off the bus. While they ate, I got my pumpkin pureed and in the freezer. I didn't freeze it as I wanted to...for my pumpkin pies, I usually use 3 1/2 c pumpkin, and silly me at the store only got pint bags instead of quarts..oh well, we'll make it work! I feel good about getting that project done. Tomorrow I have a busy day, if my kids allow, to clean up the mess of a room called a kitchen. It has been worked hard over the last couple of days...it deserves a good cleaning. I have to think of a project/activity the kids can be occupied with to get it done though.
Well, the kids are watching a movie, so I better use the time wisely and get a basket of laundry folded.

Today is pumpkin day! My dad gave me a couple of pumpkins when I picked up my car after the Apple Harvest. They have been moved from one corner to the next in my kitchen...the kids think they are the neatest toys. So today I decided I must get them cooked off and in the freezer before they are unusable. I have the last one in the oven roasting now. I need to dig out the food processor here in a minute to start getting it in the freezer. I wanted to make pumpkin whoopie pies today, but realized I don't have enough veggetable oil, so I need go to the store to get that tomorrow. For today I will just get it all cooked off and ready.
I tell ya, being domestic is tiring! Ha Ha! I fell asleep early last night and still feel like I could sleep the day away! Luckily the sun came out, so the house is much brighter than it has been for the last week or so, so that helps keep me going today!
