Toot! Toot!!

This past week we were at my in-laws cabin, (which they are getting some work done on) and they just happened to have this space available to paint on. So, with a little help from eleven little girls, I managed to create this masterpiece! I must say we did good work. So toot! toot!

Now that I have a camera I can take pix of what I have been sewing. This first is a quilt I started for Sara and Tessa about 3 years ago, but never got done, until now. There is another that is in pink tones, that is almost done also. I am quite pleases with the red quilt top. Now I just have to figure out how I am going to quilt it.

This is a new diaper bag I made. I meant to have it done before Erica came, but we all know how that works. = > Anywho, it is done now and I LOVE it!!! All those colors. It is soooo ME!!!

I recently had a friend take some pictures of Clara and Erica for me, and the others came along with us and had pictures taken too. You will have to go to her web site to see them. Go to :

and we are under Smith Girls. They turned out soooo cute!! Now I have to have some done of Sara and Tessa when their hair is done. => My favorites are of Erica, she is so cute and such a cheezier!!!! Imagine that. She is now 6 months old and getting so tall. She can roll over but chooses not to becuase she hates being on her tummy and when she does roll over she just screams and screams. Which is okay with me because that only leads to crawling and walking and general mobility. Ugh!! And who wants that.
The picture on the side of my blog of all the girls together was also taken by her. If you click on it, it will take to her web site also.

we are now in the process of getting ready for a last trip this summer to Phoenix, of all places. I can only think of a few places that would be hot this time of year and I am not allowed to mention such places. I am looking forward to seeing all the fam. but not the heat, and the long drive.

We got a new camera now so I can take pictures of the girls latest sewing projects and what I have been up to now to show everyone.

since my camera is now broken and I can no longer post the pictures of Sara and Tessa's latest sewing projects, (skirts) I will just ramble about my thoughts on evolution.
Here goes:

It just can't be true, evolution, that is, because if it was true than mom's would have 3 or 4 arms, eyes on the back of our head (for real), and be able to function on just 3 or less hours of sleep a day (for all you new moms). Isn't that how it should work???
