To his dismay, Ben has learned to never know what to expect in his house when he gets home from work. He HATES my projects, which I admit seem never-ending even to me at this point. But, I had the opportunity to borrow a quilting frame, and I have had this quilt ready to be tied for over 3 years. (I bought the fabric for the back side the day before Audra was born). So, I set the frame up (it took me two hours) and got to work. It took me two days, now I just have to sew the edges. It is a t-shirt of shirts I obtained while working at Chatfield (I purposely left out my Bear Creek shirts, because I want to forget everything I can about my year in purgatory when I worked for the Spawn of Satan).
I will admit, quilting brought back memories from when I was a little girl. Both of my grandmother's quilt(ed) and gave me a quilt they each made. My Grandma Clark would set the frame up at my parents house when she came to visit and hand sew each of us girls a quilt. I remember having the quilt set up and sitting underneath it and pulling the needle through. Ahh, the memories of quilting!
But I also have to admit, the memories are better than the work I just put in to get this quilt tied by myself! The person who was supposed to help bailed, leaving me to do it all by myself! Not a fun task, my friends, not a fun task!-
And, last Saturday we went to Heritage Square:
Audra had a blast going on all the rides (but FYI, get the bracelet- you only have to buy one because parents get to ride free, so it's a way better deal than getting the tickets- I wish we had known that before we bought the tickets).
This ride, though, made me SO nauseous!!! I often get sick on amusement park rides, but I thought- "it's a kiddy ride, I'll be fine." I almost barfed right there on the ride. And it didn't help that as I am about to puke, Audra looks up at me and says-as sweetly as sweet can be- "This ride is fun!" Blasted balloon ride!
This is what Claire did:
For being so cute, I admit she doesn't look so cute in this picture. But, you can see her top tooth, and her other one coming in!
So, this is what we have really been up to. But we don't get nearly as many comments on these posts than the other ones:)
