I have been working all year on a stitchery pattern found on Prarie Flower Farm blog and I have enjoyed it so much. Now it's time to put it all together and Linda out did her self in creating as well as sharing this project with so many! If you would like to check it out and download the patterns your self as well as join the party then feel free to head on over. http://prairieflowerfarm.blogspot.com/2010/11/my-thank-you-and-it-is-time-for-party.html

Yesterday we took a trip down to Madison that was unplanned. While Rodney was taking care of things, the kids and I headed down the the Ohio river to play at the park. The kids as you will see weren't too upset about missing school.
After getting her to explain the story to me, I look as hard as I can and sure enough about 12-15 feet out is Madi's blue beaded bracelet. As I claim to her that they are gone and we will have to find her a new bracelet Colby pleads with me to let him rescue the bracelet. I told him to find a long stick first which he couldn't and he continued to plead with me to just let him rescue it. I gave in, who am I to stop a boy from being a gentleman?! We hiked up his pant legs, took off his socks and shoes and off he went.
He didn't realize you are supposed to hold onto your pant legs as well as push your sleeves up before putting your hand in the water. OOPS!
Halloween seems to always be loads of fun for the kids and I. We have maybe only bought 1 costume which was for Dakotah, ever! We pretty much make up our costumes based off what we have at home. I did however hit up the 75% off carts this year for a few things that can become new items to pull with other things to make up next years costumes.
I love making quilts and mostly for my kids! I think by the time they are old enough to venture off on their own they will have a nice stock pile of quilts. They wont all be big, mostly lap quilts but if they have something cozy to cuddle up under when they are no longer in the comforts of their parents home, that will make my mommy heart more content. This quilt I've been working on for about a year and finished it literally the day of Colby's party. I unfortunately got pneumonia so it was a push to get it finished. I have since only managed to get one quilt made from start to finish. I just haven't had it in me. I will post pics of that one after Christmas since it's a gift for someone.
