How to have fun at Wal-Mart

As a general rule I typically try to avoid Wal-mart. However, when we are in Sierra Vista, with my Mom, we have to make an appearance there, kind of as a general rule. Our trip last week to see Spencer and Marlee was no exception! But Carter taught us a few ways to have lots of fun in Wal-Mart.

Step 1: Get in the cart and pile all of the bolts of material on top of the cart. Then insist that everyone call you "Jack" (the hamster) and feed you crackers through the "cage."

Step 2: Lay all the bolts of material across the cart and then lay on top of them. Make whoever is with you pull you around making the sound "whoooo wooo" as you take your patient to the hospital, while the patient lays on the ambulance bed.
Follow these steps and you are sure to have a fun time at your local Wal-mart.

knitting with paige

My sister Amy and I went to a knitting class tonight. Paige, came over to fix my row for me. I borrowed Amy's tide stick, to remove a stain. Paige was not happy about this.

Thanks for teaching me how to knit Paige, I believe I will knit a scarf that will make you proud. Sorry for being off task. But I'm more sorry that I didn't look in a mirror after 1pm today.

I know what I will make you...

Baby gifts?
Wedding gifts?

Embroidered, embroidered, embroidered!

Yep, that will be my staple gift from here on out, just tellin' you now.

I got an embroidery sewing machine for Christmas. I am LOVING the possibilities with this thing. Think of all I can do with the quilts I have been making for my nieces and nephews. I have two to complete in the next 2 months! I can't wait to get started on them. I went to the class yesterday to learn how to use the machine and here is my first project I made today! Carter wanted his own towel, so we embroidered a snail on one and a fish on another for him. So fun!

A New Day

Happy New Year! We met up with friends on New Year's Eve at the Tempe Block Party. Sean has been wanting to go to this literally since the day I met him. We finally made it there and I finally heard the sweet words, "you were right!!" The highlight of the block party is a toss up between the magician who had to try 3 different times to get his assistant to lay on the sword correctly so it could go through her stomach or the guy at the ferris wheel asking if I was over 18, otherwise I couldn't take Carter on the ride!
After the block party we went to the Anselmo's house for fun and games.

Right after midnight, we left for the cabin up north. We spent the New Year's Day sledding. Carter was in heaven. He has spent the whole last year asking every couple of weeks when we get to go to the snow again. Glad we can quickly visit it and then quickly come home!
