Catching up

Boy, how time flys and gets away from you. We really haven't been doing to much more than just life. But it has kept us busy. Sara and Tessa have a dance/gymnastics class and Amber and Clara take a gymnastics class and I have scouts, so that accounts for 3 nites a week. By the way, Amber is doing amazing in her gymnastics class!!! She can almost do a cartwheel perfectly. She loves the class and Clara just loves the new guy instructor. = >
I am gearing up for the Christmas season and most all my projects lined up and will be starting up in full steam tomorrow. As we are going to open all our gifts a week before Christmas my time is short so here I go...
I also want to include a few shots we took yesterday at Doug's Grandma Grace's 85th Birthday party. We got to go to Oakley for that. It was actually a fun day. We went and got to know some distantly, sort of related, relatives. Let me tell you how that works. It is truely one of those, my sister's neighbor's aunt's dog's vet's brother's uncle, kind of things. So we spent the day with my husband's dad's father's 3rd wife's kids' from her previous marriage. Fun huh. They are all sealed together, but still, these people didn't' even meet until they were all grown up (my father-in-law and the children that held the party.)(I guess they are short of Doug's uncles and aunts.) I don't know, you tell me. But anywho, it was still fun and we got to see Grandma Grace and meet some new friends.

i am a winner!!!

Yeah me!!! I put a comment on a business blog and they selected a winner from them and they chose me!! So some where in the mail I am now the winner of the newest "Sesame Street" music CD. I can't wait. It is always so fun to win something, especially when there is no strings attached like them coming to your home and demoing a product for 2 hours that is too expensive in the first place. Just thought I would add that last remark and savor my prize that is coming in the mail with no strings attached!! Yeah me!!!!

Okay, so before I get to the purpose of this post can I just ask if it is too soon to panic??? (today was election day)

Now on topic: remember this post and this one? Well, today I sat down and finished both quilts. I am quite pleased with how they turned out. Sara and Tessa's activity days group tied them to give to two girls who lost everything in the fire that came through this area in Sept. It has taken me a while to finish them but I did. Yeah, me!!! I really like the black on the red quilt. =>

On another note, Erica is all over the place. I found her pushing up on all fours in the stink bug position. It is a little sad to see how fast she is growing up. She is also sitting herself up from laying down. I took a couple of pix of her pushing up on her feet. They are a little fuzzy because I am still learning how to work my camera and she is moving too fast.
