Anthony's newest word is "pit TOURS!!"
He means "pictures," and opens my computer, clicks to the desktop screen, then clicks on the webcam icon.
...then proceeds to take dozens of selfies.
It's actually really fun. And cute. :)
Our school board has some ideas that the public hasn't had much input on.
Our family went to the school board meeting, and Kelly spoke her opinion on the matter, and so did I!
I'm impressed with Kelly.
It takes guts to give your say, and in such an influential meeting, and without previous preparation.
It was such a fun night!
All the children enjoyed seeing how a board meeting goes, and we were all having fun in the car on the way to our refreshments (it was Family Home Evening).
Next meeting we need to go to is city council again.
Haven't been there in a while.
We went to Blue Spoon Yogurt to celebrate.
Even Anthony got a cup of goodies!
He chose gummy bears over m&ms.
My friend had a baby recently, and her shower was last week.
I had some squares made already, but thought they'd be neater if I made them into the triangle squares again (like the blue one I made a bit ago).
So, about 3 hours before the shower, I had the blocks all lined up, and I was hoping I could finish the quilt within that time.
Almost! The only thing I didn't get done was tying or quilting it.
So, I showed her the quilt at the shower, then took it back for a couple days until I had it finished.
The same night as the shower, Maggie was at a birthday party, and Josh and Lilly went to a school dance with friends.
Our church had a nativity display with hundreds of nativities from all over the world.
In the kids room, Anthony wouldn't let the baby Jesus down.
Letting Kelly admire Jesus.
...annnnd snatching him back!
My Baby Jesus!
A few minutes as a shepherd
I had some fun fabrics and decided to make a few aprons and see if they'd sell on etsy.
I've been working on selling things that we don't use, or making things and selling them, to save more money for a trip we're taking next summer.
So, Kelly got to model a couple aprons, and Anthony modeled a couple, too.
Yes, they're girlie aprons, but he's the child who could fit the children ones.
I decided that if I was going to sell stuff, it'd be good to donate 20% of each sale to Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Check it out here!
*I still have a lot to learn with etsy*
My friend's finished baby quilt!
Isn't it pretty?!
My friend and her husband have a history with Hawaii, and so I was able to legitimately put in a real Hawaiian fabric that is actually straight from a Hawaiian fabric store!
I've been waiting a long time for a real project for this fabric.
My friend nominated me for a contest Cafe Rio was having to recognize people who do good in their community.
They chose our story!
I had no idea she did this, and when she called to tell me I won, I was in shock.
We won 10 meals at Cafe Rio, and a bunch of bumper stickers. :)
Cafe Rio is really good Mexican food that everyone seems to love.
Since Anthony's been going to preschool, he's been looking for letters at the different places we go.
So when we were reading one day, I helped him point to "I" and he read it!
By the end of the book, he'd had enough of that kind of work.
