J2 turned 8 on 9/11/04!!
We had a small birthday party for him at Pizza Hut with just his grandparents.
J1 and J2 love to play the video games here!
While J3 likes to ride the rides!
This picture was just too cute to leave out! 🙂
Today I went to a class with my sister-in-law called “Babyproofing and Beyond” – it was a last minute thing since she didn’t have anyone else with whom to attend. So, I wasn’t really sure what I was in for! The first video opened with an ER scene – ugh. I did good though – I didn’t cry in public and thankfully my SIL was agreeable to not stay for the CPR instruction I knew I could not make it through that part!!
So, we went to lunch at Olive Garden after and then hit the new Bed, Bath and Beyond store. I’ve been carrying around a coupon for them forever and I finally got to use it! I finally replaced my 17.5 yr old crock pot!! LOL Can’t wait to use it!!
I’m going to be babysitting my SIL son after Christmas – it will be odd to have a baby in the house again, but I’m looking forward to it – on most days. 🙂 Also, I found out my brother and his wife are expecting! 🙂 Next summer there will be two babies around these parts! Can’t wait! Yes, there are parts of me who wish it was my turn and then I remember swollen ankles and midnight feedings and I’m ok with just being Aunty Amy 😉
Last night was my 2nd lesson – A pinwheel square. I have not sewn them together yet – I’m not sure where I will place them when I finish my sampler quilt.
After the first lesson we had homework!! I waited too long after the class to work on it and could NOT figure it out! But I finally figured it out!! You’ll notice 1/4 of it is missing – we haven’t learned that technique yet.
To make this, I put together some 4 patchs and then put them into a nine-patch. The dark blue is the background – the yellow is part of the tree trunk – the multicolor parts are leaves or blossoms I guess. This square (when finished) is called “Blossoming Tree”
