"Popcorn Girl"

Eve is our new fashion designer.  She created this outfit all by herself and proclaimed she is "Popcorn Girl"!  

Dentist Visit

Today we went to the pediatric dentist!  It was our first time to this dentist and we loved them!!  They were so kid friendly and the kids did great for them.  We'll be going back in a week or so for some cavities to be filled.   
I was only able to get a picture of Evie, because she wanted me to stay with her.  Kaitlyn and Reuben were brave and went by themselves!!

In my guild we are doing a round robin challenge.  This is the quilt which was in the brown bag that I chose.  This month we are to add a five inch border with two of the corners having something appliqued in them.  Any ideas?

Thank You Quilt Guild Ladies!

On Thursday my quilt guild had their monthly meeting.  After the meeting Sue and Barb came up to me to tell me how much they miss "Franky" (Lincoln).  When I started going to the guild I was pregnant with Linc and have been there since.  Well, Sue and Barb made "Franky" a quilt and thought that I needed one too!  These ladies touched my heart!  Thank you so much!

Last Set of Finals, Forever!!!

One of the most exciting turns of events happened to us just a couple weeks ago.  After nearly 3 years of school with 83 hair-pulling, ulcer causing exams and countless quizzes, I finished the classwork portion of my schooling.  It is truly amazing to finally be at this point.  It seems like it has been such a long time coming.  Now I start the intense clinical training portion.  I spend my remaining time in school (14 months) in clinical rotations.  I am currently spending the month at the VA hospital here in Cleveland where we are given a great deal of experience with diabetic patients as well as a variety of other conditions.  I look forward to the coming year as I hope to be able to apply the things learned in the previous three. 

Thank you to Kristen and the kids for your support through the years.  I could not have done this without you all!

Burp cloths

These burp cloths were made from single fold cloth diapers.  I folded them in thirds and did a decorative stitch on the top and bottom and a cute ribbon to cover the edge.  I tied a bit of ribbon in a bow and sewed it on so it will not come undone.  I also fray checked the ends of the bow.


Just thought the little man needed some time on the blog!  I love this little guy!  He has the bet smile and is my little cuddle bug.

Craft Corner

To make the LUCKY blocks I took plain wood blocks from the craft store.  Painted them a bone color after the paint dried put scrapbook paper on them with Mod Podge. For the letters I cut them out on my cricut  and put them on with Mod Podge.

The New Do

Kaitlyn and I had our hair cut this morning.  It was so fun to hang out with my cutie.  She really wanted to get bangs.  They turned out cute, I think!

No Good, Very Bad Day!

It is only ten in the morning here but this morning has been awful!!  I took the kids to school today and was pulled over in front of the car line at school!  Yeah it was my fault, but still not cool!  My registration is expired which I knew it was.  I have already gotten the E-check and went to the BMV to renew but it is in Ryan's name and they said he had to do it or I had to get a power of attorney.  So after getting pulled over I came home and nursed Lincoln (I know I need to wean him).  While I was nursing Eve was playing so quietly in her room.  A little too quietly.  I put Lincoln down for a nap and checked on Eve...  She had lip gloss all over her face including eye lids.  She had also painted her fingernails and toenails hot pink.  The white rug was able to be painted pink too!  (Does anyone know tricks to getting it out??) I got some of the nail polish out with nail polish remover.  Here are her beautiful nails!

Not too bad, huh?
