Will work for fabric.....

Just a few minutes ago, Clint was unpacking some new fabric and I overheard Lili ask him, "Dad, if I do some chores, can I have this?"

That's my girl!!!!!

Of course I had to investigate and take a picture!

8 months!!!

Can you believe my baby is 8 months old?!?! I hardly can. Facts about him: he is the best baby! Not kidding, he is so mellow sometimes I forget he's here. He just sits there while his older brothers and sister are screaming and fighting and enjoys the show. He has two teeth - two on the way - and even with all that teething he doesn't make a fuss. Seriously, the Lord knew I need a mellow kid because He realized I couldn't handle another hyper child! (Not that I don't love the other three and I don't have a favorite - wink, wink! J/K

Noah can also scoot anywhere, especially if he is chasing a ball! It is so cute, he gets up on his hands and arms and then drags his feet. He knows how to clear his throat with his mouth closed - it's a sound I make when I am clearing my allergies and a sound that my family hates - so naturally I love that he can do it already!

He smiles so quickly and grunts so loudly when he wants food and my new favorite thing he does when he eats is to breath loud and fast and holds his arms out until each spoonful of food goes in his mouth! I love this kid!

Well, 4th child and 3rd boy, I figured it was time to have crib bedding (oh and a real crib, not a Pack n Play). Wish I could claim that I made this cute set up, but I didn't! Grandma did - I do have the best Mom - I sent her the fabric, told her just to throw it together and this is what she came up with! I love it, and I think Noah does too!

I could just munch on this kid!

Here he is making that throat noise - mouth closed and everything. It's so funny! Glad I got it on camera so I can remember it.

My mom wanted Noah to be able to look at all the different colors and she added Ric Rac for him to play with - he immediately started to play with it - too bad he's flipping off the camera though. Sorry, I couldn't resist sharing that!

Get me out of here Mom and stop taking so many dang pictures!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Okay - I totally feel guilty about not blogging lately. It's been really frustrating not being able to share what I am quilting right now. So - I have been super, super busy, but I did make time to go to my family reunion this last weekend. So - here's a few pictures from the weekend - just so you know that I am still alive and I am not abandoning my blog! :)

Since my mom will be 60 this year - we were going to have a grand celebration with all the kids and grandkids, but schedules changed and things didn't quite work out for that, so I decided to take my mom and sisters that were in town to lunch. Mom's choice was Chili's and we had a wonderful time. So, left to right - Jessie, Abby, Me, Amy, Mom - and might I say that I am so proud of my mom. She has type 2 diabetes and she is off insulin and all her medication because she has stuck to her diet - not to mention she has lost a lot of weight. So proud of you Mom! Sadly - 2 of my sisters weren't there. Wish they could have been!

Me and my sisters again - notice anything new about my hair? All gone - Abby gave me a cute A-line hair cut and touched up my roots. I love that all of our hair is not our original colors - that happens to be because we have 2 of the 6 sisters that are cosmetologists.

I can't get enough of my boys! They had so much fun at the park for the reunion.

Lili had so much fun with Maggi! They even dressed exactly alike for the reunion. My sister just moved back to Salt Lake from Missouri - so we haven't been able to be together much, but Lili and Maggi were instant friends and had a wonderful weekend.

They had so much fun sliding on the tires in the park - so they ended up with black bums! Notice their cute bows? At least my sister Jen was there through her talents!

Thanks for letting me share a little of my life with you - I am nearing the end of my stressed filled weeks and I will soon be quilting customer quilts again - and will be back to sharing all my work! Thanks for your patience!
