My Girl

I am sitting on the couch wasting time on the computer just relaxing when my kids that have been in bed since 7:45 keep coming down. Dylan is reading a book and asking me questions and my Kate is trying to make the house look nice before her friend comes over tomorrow at noon. She is totally bussling around like I do picking everything up and putting it away. There was a lot out from Christmas and she has carried all her things to her room and continued to clean everyone else's stuff up. Pushing in chairs, getting all the dinner dishes together, and I think I hear her sweeping the kitchen! Oh my what have I created?

My boy

My sweet Dylan he always wants me to make him things and after I finished his pajama bottoms he came up with the crazy idea of the eye mask. He does like it pitch black when he goes to bed so I whipped these out and he has worn them for a week straight! Crazy boy I sure love him tons! He is totally out but made the face with the flash-sorry bub I couldn't resist!

I was trying to hurry and do laundry, pack and of course finish a skirt for Kate I wanted to take to Utah with me at 10:00 at night when I was being stupid cutting fabric with my rotary cutter sideways instead of up and down when I sliced my middle finger on my left hand. I have never done anything like that before! Good thing my parents were over- we got a hold of Dr. Rollert (my boss) and he kindly met us at the office around 11:30 to give me two stitches.

Sneak peak

We all know I love birthday parties and with kates in January I feel like I need to plan a little early to accomplish everything I want to do. So my friend Anna made her girls a really cute dress and we were at the quilt store nod day and Kate found this cute rainbow chevron fabric. We had talked about a rainbow party so we had to buy it of course!
My original plan was to take the pictures at the salt flats while we were in Utah but that didn't happen...these are just a couple Tracie took on my phone so not the finished project.

Buck Up

Not a day goes by that I think...I should blog about this and you all know I have failed miserably....I have the excuse computer too slow... don't have good pictures... or have not downloaded them and don't feel like dealing with that, so into a list it goes for when I finally get around to it.  And then I feel like I can't just start because that would be weird right?!  NO IT WONT!  That's what I finally told myself tonight so here goes onto the REAL post.

We have a new pet.  Long story short we sold our house lived with my brother for 5 months bought new house did a ton of renovation and somewhere in there I promised my kids a new pet when we were settled.  So after lots of talking and research we decided on a bearded dragon.  My wonderful cousin Jon taught us all about them and hooked us up with one that is 3 1/2 years old and needed a new home.  We picked him up a couple weeks ago and he has become a wonderful addition to our family.

I had to work all day today and the new stay at home dad had the kids.  I called at 5 to say I was driving home and was informed they were outside with Rango letting him soak up some sun.  Got home 40 minutes later I could see all the people outside and asked where Rango was.  I was told they had put him back so I left it.  It is now 9:30 and we just had major drama!  Here is the timeline:
8:00 kids in bed
8:30 lights out
9:00 Dylan yelling Rango is not in his cage!  I had assumed sneaky Kate had him in bed with her so I head upstairs and Dylan goes running out the front door completely frantic!  The thoughts going through my head were not good.  Apparently Kate had taken him on the front porch swing and covered him with a pillow and forgot about him!  The poor thing is freezing, Dylan is bawling and Kate is fake crying just for effect.

Can you say Good Night!
