Something I finished

This is Cooper's quilt. Cooper is a little boy who I watch. His parents are also good friends of ours.

I really enjoyed making this quilt. It is one of the first quilts I did completely on my own. The instructions were a bit confusing at times, but overall it was great. And I just can't get over the colors. They worked perfect!

I'm trying to gear myself up to start a new project. The only problem is, I put all of my quilting stuff away. Usually it sits on my dining room table, but since we had a family birthday this weekend I had to put it all away. And it looks so nice!

I haven't done a "Not Me Monday" in a really long time, but in an effort to blog more here it goes.

Not once during the family party this weekend did I want to smack a certain annoying family memeber. Nope!

I never considering quiting my current job in search for another despite the money difference.

I would never wish for a parent to pick their child up early. I mean I am getting paid to watch their child!

I certainly didn't eat a piece of birthday cake for dinner!

And there is no way, wouldn't consider, asking my daughters team mother what exactly she does, since I'm doing one of her main jobs.

You can visit MckMama who starting the "not me" by clicking the logo up top. And read many other "Not Me's" It makes me feel better!

Fail, epic fail

If your wondering what my title refers to, don't bother. And don't read my last post; ) I don't know why I bother making promises. I can't keep them obviously! The good news is I have taken some pictures and even downloaded them, I just didn't blog.

A lot has recently happened. I was voted in as PTF President at my kids school. I signed my oldest up for Jr high. My baby turned six, and my middle one lost two teeth. I also finished another quilt. Now that I have learned to blog from my phone, hopefully I will update more.

I am horrible at taking pictures. I don't really know why. Cameras aren't the issue, I always have one. Subjects aren't the issue, with three kids, two dogs and daycare I should have a lot of opportunities.

I just never think about it. But when I do I get a little depressed knowing that I don't have tons of pictures to document the lives of my family.

So even though its been done, and it is kind of boring I'm forcing myself to take a picture and post it everyday. The hard part is going to be uploading. While I can take pictures I suck at getting them on the computer.

So here is goes. Starting tomorrow I hope to have a picture up!
