It’s come to my attention

That my blogging has become non-existent. My apologies. We’ve been busy soaking up the summer. First there were fireworks at the city show (exploded straight into the crowd instead of the sky thankyouverymuch).

Then there was some merry go rounding,

some water sliding,

some kangaroo zooing,

some camping (I know, I’m still in disbelief myself),

some swim suit mini golfing,

and some baby growing (this is 16 weeks, and we’re sitting pretty at 22.5 now!).

It’s been busy on some days, slow on others, and hot all the way through. We’re looking forward to some crisp cool autumn air and some more frequent blogging for all 6 of you to read. Over and out.

The Gril at 18 months (minus a few days).

We did some photos to document Abby at 18 monthsish. I think we got some cute ones, despite the fact that it was past her bedtime and she got a face full of wood chips after a too-big-for-her slide adventure. She took it like a man and went back to playing. =]

Nothing like finding “treasures” at the park =]

Huck Finn Day.

Abby and I are (trying) to soak up these nice summer days where she’s the only kiddo the best we can. This morning we headed out to our city’s fun, totally free kid’s day as part of the city’s strawberry days celebration week. Abby was still a bit young for most of the activities, but she loved seeing all of the “puppies” that were there with their owners for the pet show. She was so so sad when I took her out of the little area with 3 little cocker spaniel puppies… she loved them so much! She was happy to see that there were a lot of other dogs to look at when we left those 3.

I think next year she will have a bit more fun when she understands how to play the games. Can’t beat free!

New family member coming soon(ish).

Abby’s got a partner in crime coming on (but hopefully more like BEFORE) December 24, 2010!

The baby seems to be doing well, and Abby knows the word “baby” so we are all set!

I’ve been away at girl’s camp.

It was such a lovely week at girl’s camp… we were at the Heber Valley Camp owned by the church, about an hour away from home.
Here are 4 of our lovely ladies getting ready for the zip line. So bummed I couldn’t go!

Meg is SO ready. It goes about 30 feet up, I believe.

Back at camp, waiting to be fed. So much delicious food at camp!

The lake day- here the girls are all headed out. I was not about to get in a canoe! I’m prone to tipping, and this was a fully clothed-no swimsuits-leech infested type deal. Pass on the canoe. I did end up hopping in a paddle boat with one of our girls though, and that was lovely.

View from the boat.

After my legs got tired (didn’t take long, especially since we had hiked a good bit the day before) I joined the girls in the sandbox. They think of everything up there!

This was attempt number 6. It was also the last.

My cute laurels! Love those girls!

This is why.

The end! (So happy to be home!)

My quilt came home.

This quilt has seen many many of my hours… somewhere in the neighborhood of 40-50 hours actually. Quilting is a labor of love. Not really profitable to make a quilt this intricate to sell. In my mind, that makes it priceless! It just came back from the machine quilter, and now it’s ready to get the binding put on and then it’s all finished. Binding is a long long process, especially with a quilt this size. Finished, the quilt measures about 6′x7′, which is just larger than the blanket that I currently use to cuddle up to watch TV with. I guess I will finish it just in time for it to get warm outside =]


Design Mom

Have you been reading Design Mom’s birth stories collected from around the blogosphere? I think they are beautiful.

The thing about having a baby is that so many people do it differently, but no one way is wrong. I read a lot of stories about women who had long long labors, and who had short ones. Everyone has a different shape and a different birth experience. Almost no use comparing them, but it’s so lovely to read about people’s experiences with such a wonderful time in life. Some of the stories will make you laugh, and some will make you cry.

My favorite part about the whole thing is that everyone gets to choose what their ideal is. You don’t always get your way, but you get to think about what is the best for you. I think that’s wonderful.

Sewing Break.

My quilt’s been put on hold, because my house looks like this, but I’m gaining a sewing room in the move, so I’m a pretty happy camper. Today’s been packing, tomorrow moving, Thursday cleaning, and Friday celebrating (graduation!!). What a crazy crazy wonderful week. =]

Prom.

All this talk (and sewing!) about prom has me thinking about dresses and hair, and pictures! Here’s a little peak of Prom 2005 (for real? 5 years??)

Yep. That’s more like it.

Giveaway.
