fall is maybe behind us and winter is here!

enjoying my couple of hours with a quiet house!
kids both sleeping.  me watching smut like Dr. Phil and Real Housewives!
education for sure!!  and not at all a waste of my time!
i took a break from sewing today!!!  I whole day without work seems like the thing to do to get my back on track!   a perfect friday!

Halloween this year we had perfect weather and a great time!!! 
the spunky black kitty and the red power ranger got way too much candy!
it has make for many crying screaming fits and it was only about 48 hours ago!!!   we started at a friends house in town with a bunch of friends and then all went out together! 

I love scrapbooking, girlfriends, chatting, drinking wine, staying up most of the night and sleeping in until whenever i want!
last weekend we had a house full of women @ a scrap house by Brainerd MN!
such a perfect weekend!  great girlfriends make it all the better!!!   

pLum has made me very busy!
some days it is hard to keep up-but it is all worth it.
it is my creative side put to work!
lately i feel that the worst part is that people copy and pretend they have a creative business.  
copying a persons business and art is not being creative it is stealing!
i wish people would understand that they are the ones who look ridiculous when you copy someones work, booth ideas and wording too!  
the best part is that people pay for unique, well made products and it shows!
I work hard on every piece i make and sell to make sure it is exactly what my customers want.    and i will keep doing that!
Happy weekend everyone!



almost 4 months away from blogging...  wow!
not like me at all.  
but i am back.

a lot has happened in those short four months!
PJ turned 2!
she is on spunky two year old!  she sure keeps me on my toes each and everyday.
she got tubes in July!  and boy did that change her life! (and lets be honest ours too)  
i just wish i would have done it earlier!  
who would have known that she would have almost no hearing in either ear.  poor girl heard charlie browns mother for almost 2 years of her life!  
she was a jabber queen bf the tubes and now she never stops talking. 
i was overwhelmed with her with laugh after her tubes!

what else.
bike rides
ice cream afternoons
dillon skiing.
preslee tubing.
dillon learning to swim like a fish.
dillon started PRE-SCHOOL
preslee in gmnastics

time with nana and papa at the cabin.
pLum is keeping me insanely busy!

boat rides
the COLOR run in mnpls

weekend trips with the boys for drew.
a couple of weekends away with the girls for me!
(we are so lucky to have such a great group of friends)
dillon learning to ride a BIKE w.o training wheels! 


 there are so many things i do not want to forget.  things they say. things they do.  or how they make me laugh until i cry.
these two kids make me laugh.. make me crazy and remind me daily how lucky we are to have them!

this week dillon wants to be.
a power ranger.
a race car driver and to save puppies if they are in the water!
a daddy.
... and it is only tuesday!

preslee's little high voice telling me "I Poopie"

dillons love for trucks, cars, power rangers and anything less that is on a commercial.
preslees's loves for babies, PAINTING and her puppies!


long time no blog.

where have i been?  
loving summer!  loving hours on the floatie, making sand castle, playing baseball, teeball, movies, ice cream treats, playing with friends, nights with friends, bike rides, walks, finding shells, slip and slide,  play dates and of course the other stuff that i do not mention... tantrums, time outs and sick kids!!!!

tonight i am home alone!  ALONE!  all alone.  just me!  this is craziness.  i never get the house to myself.  i dropped the kids off with my mom "NANA" this am at the cabin.  they were so excited!  i came home and have been sewing all day long!  3 weeks i have a big show in fargo and i am trying to get all of my wedding orders done too!
i do not think i have ever gotten so much done in one day!  i rented a movie and was on the couch all day hand sewing rossettes all day!  ready for a little break!  back to the cabin for a couple of days in the sun!

what have we been doing?
celebrating my gramma's 85th!  happy happy birthday gramma!
 these are from easter!  but love them so much.

play play play!
ice cream, friends, beach play dates, pLum sewing, teeball, 
crafts, dunton locks bike rides and much much more!

 love this quote!  it is so so so true!

loving baseball.  and a pretty good hitter too!  catching we are for sure working on!  but hitting comes naturally when daddy pitches!  hitting the tee is a little harder!
and yes water boots are a must when playing outside when it is 80 i guess!!!

 dillon went to bible school this summer for a week!
he loved it!  he especially loved that a couple of the days i did not go and he got picked up and dropped off by friends!!!  so fun to listen to him and how much a 3 1/2 year old can learn in 4 short days! 

 my little miss messy!  
or pigpen (that was my nickname growing up on the farm)
what she loves.
to torture dillon.  to read.
ciallou.  gogurt. suckers.  swining.  swimming.  this girl has no fear.
she went tubing behind the boat and loved it!  
to laugh.  getting dirty.  noodles.  ice cream.
cuddling. dancing.  yogurt.  the middle of oreos.  babies. taking dillons toys and running.
her sun glasses.  hats.  kisses!  
and making us smile everyday!  
love this girl!!!  xoxoxoxoox

randomness.  wanted to catch up.
there you go grams and dad!!!
