My parents just got back from Hawaii a couple of weeks ago. They sent these clothes to my kids who had to pose for a picture. (o.k. maybe I made them pose for a picture...but at least they smiled.) Tyler thought he was cool and kept putting up the colar and saying he was Elvis Presley. I asked how he knew about Elvis Presley. He rolled his eyes at me and said " Mom, out techer at school told us about him". Funny story..but I am still tryingto figure out how Elvis Presley fits into the kindergarten curriculum

Happy Birthday to me!

My big 27th birthday was on Sunday. It was a great day. Kevin got me a watch, which I have to exchange.(It was too big) He also got me a PED EGG, which I wanted, so that I can scrub all the nasty calouses off my feet. Gross, but true. There were a few other things as well. But my favorite was this cool bowl that the boys gave me. Tyler told me I could use it to put my pumpkins (gourds) in when I decorate this fall. How nice is that?

Tyler Goes to School!!!!

Tyler started Kindergarten today. I can't believe that he is old enough to go to school. Does that mean I am old,too? I hope not. He was so excited this morning to get out of bed and put on his new school clothes. I remember those days. He picked out his clothes like three days ago and they have been sitting in front of his dresser. I think Jay must be bored already without him home because his is so mopey and driving me nuts. Oh, well-he'll have to adjust.

Jay wanted to be in a picture too. Apparently this is a monumental occasion for him as well.

So we just got home from another little trip to Bonners Ferry and I realized that Fall is just around the corner. That means shorter days and cold evenings. It also means lots of time indoors. So I have come to realize that I need a project to keep me busy. Any ideas? I am thinking of a baby quilt, I have a pattern that would make a cut girl quilt, but I don't want to jinx myself. So if you know of any great sewing or crafting ideas, let me know, I would be thrilled with any suggestions.
