The fact that he has that particular shirt on is just priceless.

into THIS bag!?
For all my friends and family who can sew just stop reading now cause it will be painful.
As if I didn't have enough knitting project laying around I decided to sew a bag. I found these fabulous reusable shopping bags on Esty and wanted them SO bad but after showing them to different people they all assured me I could make these for a fraction of the cost. So, I decided to prove them all wrong...haha! I found fabric so yummy I could eat it with a spoon....as my friend Esther says. After MANY hours I finally figured out how to line the bag with an invisible seam AND put the handles in all at the same time.
I'm VERY excited about my bag if you couldn't tell. I just might make more....
Update/Disclaimer: After MANY hours of trying to get my head wrapped around sewing in the liner I finally went online to my fabulous friend Meagan, who has a 'HomeEc degree that really isn't a REAL degree', to ask for help. She found me a wonderful link to help me with the sewing together process. Thank you!! Just wanted to keep it real!

Bubby just basically aggravated the living daylights out of the girls. If there was a stick he had to pick it up and hit them with it. If they wanted to play with the horses so did he. If they wanted to play with dolls then he wanted the same doll. If they wanted to ride bikes he wanted their bikes. He was the perfect little brother...haha!

Friends came over last night and we had s'mores and the kids built this tent home under the big fir tree. (Translation: The men made fire and we ate sugar.) It was a nice evening.

This child LOOKS all sweet and cute but let me tell ya...she can SCREAM like nobody's business. She has reflux and about 15 minutes after she is nursed she will start screaming (and screaming and screaming and screaming....and it never stops!!). Poor little dear.
So, to keep her from screaming her mommy wraps her. It's keeps her happy about 95% of the time. It's so amazing! I wish I had known about all these different wraps when my kids were little. It ALMOST makes me want to have another....like I said...ALMOST.
Here we are at the mall. I left my kids with Grandma. We went to Starbucks (I had pumpkin bread!) and we shopped all day and then we even went to Macaroni Grill BY OURSELVES! for supper.
I wish we lived closer....think of the money we could spend together...heehee!

It felt like such an honor to hear her sing. It was amazing!! The whole day was such fun. I left the kids with their Daddy and my mom, sister, aunt and myself went shopping. I wasn't responsible for a thing all day!! It was great.
We shopped, ate out and went to the show. The only thing I bought all day long was a pair of sunglasses. I tried too. I really tried to find something but nothing.... That is so typical. I had all this luxury of time to try on clothes and REALLY look at stuff and nothing. Oh well...
My Aunt ME was also able to score me some tickets to see Merle Haggard in May but I was so sick I couldn't go. A chance of a lifetime to see Merle Haggard and I was in bed. Then she calls me from the show to tell me Merle (cause we are on first name basis) is sick also and won't be making the show but guess who filled in for him??? Gretchen Wilson, Cowboy Troy and Kid Rock!! I about died!! I just rolled over and went back to my fever induced coma. It was not a good day....

my mom and sister worked their little fingers to the bone.
Notice how I have on a fleece jacket and I'm wrapped in fleece. It was like 90 that day and everyone else is hot. I had a 102 temp and I was freezing! It was the start of my horrible illness. I think I'm about over it now...2 weeks later.
Anyway...back to the jelly. There were lot's of strawberries to be picked and lot's of jelly to be made. It is yummy!!
