Just a few recent pictures of the kids!

I did it...but don't look too close!!

Back Side: Edges are ragged
Front Side

For those that know me I am crafty but sewing is not one of my top things to do when I am feeling crafty! For one I don't have the patience, the littlest things get to me. I hate it when the bobbin runs out of thread or I thread the machine wrong!! Ugggg! Second, I can't sew straight to save my life so my pieces are never even and perfect. Third, I hate instructions...I would rather do it my way,but with sewing I am not that talented to do it my way like I can with scrapbooking.
But now being a stay home mom who has gotten addicted to blog searching, running across cool things made with fabric and a sewing machine...I have had this itch to make something. A square rag quilt was on the top of my list. They are so cute and after looking them up, they look easy to make. Something I could make for sure. But then I ran across this straight stitch and cut rag quilt... I was all over it.
Don't look too close or you will bust up laughing at my skills. LOL :) I love being able to put the colors and designs of fabric together and looking at all the awesome fabric that is out there. I so could get addicted to is like scrapbook want one of everything!!
It measures about 46inX36. Ashlynn says she gets one next, which should be pretty easy now that I know what the heck I am doing..or think I know what I am doing. :)

Another week gone

Now that I am a stay at home mom, my days and weeks fly by. It seems like I am rolling my eyes and letting out a sigh because tomorrow is Monday and before I know it, it is Thursday. For those that don't know, the kids go to school Monday to Thursday here and have a 3 days weekend, which I love!! Now if we could get Jay on the same schedule we would be set!! LOL
Ashlynn only has like 10 days left of school before summer break. It will be so nice not to HAVE to get up and going in the mornings, but I hope that we can stay busy enough that she does not become bored. I really want to work on math and reading this summer with her. I can't believe that she will be in 2nd grade next year...blows my mind. She tells me all the time, when I am 14 years old Greyson will be 7 like I am now. REALITY CHECK!! :)
I have been busy spring cleaning and making messes for myself to have to clean up. I just wish my house could stay organized! I have so many things I want to work on such as scrapbook and make a rag quilt for Greyson, but the thought of having to clean it up makes me pass on the idea of even getting started.
Jay is enjoying his days off with us and he is such a good daddy. Greyson just loves to smile at him! It is a wonderful sight to see. He has been busy at work and trying to fit in a few over time days, which I am very thankful for.
Greyson James is growing like a weed!! He turned 3 months yesterday and is close to 12 pounds I would guess. On top of school, Ashlynn has softball about 3 nights a week. I love to go watch her, but wish she had more drive. She enjoys it, but she doesn't ENJOY it! I have adventured out more with Greyson and her games give me the chance to get him out, but not too exposed!

she will be going to 2nd grade next
year! Wow...they grow up too fast!

Quit & Simple= Wonderful Day

I am lucky to hear "mommy" from these two beautiful children of mine.

My Mother's Day consisted of the three of us hanging out at home doing nothing on the "to do list" or having to be here or there at this time. Jay was working graves so he was sleeping but wasn't they only one who got to catch up on sleep. Greyson and I took a good nap together with Greyson on my chest as Ashlynn played barbies. It was nice to just be home and most of all together with my two children!
