My NeW ObSeSsIoN

I cleaned out my kids toy room and
turned it into my sewing/craft room and...
My cute girlies
wearing there new dresses
A dress I made Hannah and an Apron for Miley (not done with the apron yet)
I LOVE sewing!
I've had all these ideas running threw my head latley of what I can sew next. I couldn't sleep last night so I got up and started sketching picture of things I want to make.

I've been making pillows and aprons and bow and outfits and dresses and skirts and blankets
I am loving this, I think having it all in a room that I can have my stuff organized and left out so I can come and go when needed ( I DO still have a house full of kids LOL)
It's been a fun little hobby and MOST of the material I get are scrapes from the craft stores or walmart that is the clearensed "end of the bolt" peices, or at... yes my friends, YARD SALES!!!

My big 4th grader Zac man!

Hannah was so happy to be going to school. When she got home she just kept saying

"It was such a fun day at school mom."

This is the part that was a little hard for me, Hannah looks so little with all those big kids, but look at Zac with his arm around his little sis! so cute.

My poor Gray Gray tripped while heading outside and split his forehead right open. I took him to the urgent care and because it was so deep they didn't think the glue and butterfly would hold so the stitched it up.

He is so dang tuff and didn't cry at all, he was running around the waiting room with a big gash in his head... then they had to stitch it. He freaked out! Kicking and screaming. I hated it so bad, nothing like breaking a moms heart.

After getting home he once again acted like nothing had happened to him and he began climbing on chairs and tables and riding his scooter and trike. Now I'm paranoid!

Easter Saturday

BRRR, we braved the cold and snow to go to an egg hunt.
Hannah was all over getting as many eggs as she could

Miley was freezing. To cold to care about the eggs.

Grady was Happy as ever.
Later that day we had a family get-together and egg hunt.
It was fun/ CrAzY!
(For some reason the kids all seemed to be on one that day.)
It was fun to see everyone and luckly the weather was nicer by the afternoon.

Everyone haven fun and being goofy!

Spring break in Poky

I used to want to get away from Poky come spring break,
this year that's where I went.
I stayed with Lacey and it was so much fun.
As u can see we did just about what we'd do if we weren't together,
only we had someone to do it with and
twice as many kids to take care of and clean up after. LOL
I think cause they had each other they didn't make as many messes
and because there was two of us to clean and cleaned up twice as fast.
This is what most of our time consisted of... KIDS!
I didn't get any pictures of Jax and Zac
cause they were on the computer most the time frying there brains!

All the little ones had so much fun.
The played so hard and all got along perfect.

Miley and Alex get along SO SO great
it made it so nice to have them entertain each other.

My awesome friend Riley had me bring my girls to there old preschool class
they had so much fun seeing all there school/church friends.
Then we went to our old playgroup to catch up with friends.
I went out with my family one night and went to lunch with sisters and friends one day.
It was a fast week with all the things we fit in. It really made me miss home and everyone there.

A week before Easter the Bunny went to visit the Zoo and to my suprise ALL of my kids liked the bunny... I was sure Miley and Gray would be scared, NOPE!
The weather was perfect!

They all thought EVERY animal was the best one!
They were so much fun to watch.

It was so nice to get out and do something fun with our little family!

An update on my little family

So I can't find the cord to download pictures since we moved so heres a verbal update...

January 8th we took a huge leap of faith and moved our little family to the town of Meridian. It has been a great move so far. Zac really loves school and Church and is making friends quickly. Mark pretty much knew averyone at his work before and it he is also doing well with the change, he is still getting used to a 25 min commute each way but he says it don't bother him. The three little ones all seem to be doing well with the change also. ME... I am very blessed that I know some people that live here, this has helped me TUNS. I live about a mile away from my cousin Tina that has been a great friend to me, I see or talk to her just about every day. My awsome friend that grew up down the street from me Shari lives here and I love her to death and we've been able to see each other a few times and one of my good friends Jen, I meet 7+ years back live here too, we got together and it was so great to see her and her little fam, and our oldest boys that played together forever ago hit it off like they hadn't been away from each other for years.

The week I moved here my favorite JoDee can to see me and help me get things put up and put away, I loved having her here and her cute boys that my kids love so much... and of course i loved the help too :-).

...That same weekend my mother-in-law took our family and all the rest of marks family on a fun quick trip to yellowstone. we went through the park played in the water and got to catch up with marks family.

Next my Dad and my awsome sister and her kidos come to see me and it was SO much fun, my mother-in-law can up too and it was so great to hang out eat LOTS of yummy food and show them all where i live now. that same weekend on Sunday my brother Todd came up with his family and we had a great sunday visiting and playing games.

This last weekend my dad had work here and so I got to see him again and he droped my cute little sister off to play with me. It was so much fun cause I had a babysitter and we got to go shop play hang, my cousin tina came with and we all had lots of fun.

With all the excitment going on we've only had a chance to go to church 2x, but everyone seems so great and friendly. I really look forward to getting to know people more and hopefully makeing some new friends.

OH YA... and mixed in with all that we had our little Hannah Jo turn 5! she is such a cute little girl. I can't believe shes five, I love her so dang much and with as many time as she was in the hospital last year (for one thing or another) so far so good. She really seems to be doing good, it makes me so happy to see her healthy.

... and my sweet baby Grady turned 2. I can NOT even believe that he's two. he is such a sweet little boy that I can't get enuf of. He LOVES his big sisters and big brother and lights up if any of them give him attention.

WOW!!! thats an earfull. hopefull i can find my cord soon so you don't have to read so much next time and you can just look at pics...LOL
