So yesterday was my 31st birthday. I would still like to know if I am suppose to act like a grown up now that I am in my 30's. Do grown ups get vulture dolls and think they are the greatest thing ever? Well I did. And when I have my computer back I will get a picture of him. He needs a name. What is a good vulture name? I also got some new quilting supplies. And a quarter from my brother. We have had a silly birthday thing going on for the last 10 years or so. It started with a quarter to him on his birthday and then he upped it for mine and I got 2 quarters. It has gone up and up through the years. He will never be able to beat last years gift. We were still in Texas and he was here in Cali. So instead of sending me a bunch of quarters he took 30 pictures of a quarter in different places and text ed them to me all day long. The quarter on the back of a toy horse making it a quarter horse and the french guy holding the quarter making it the french quarter were my favorites. So this year we are back down to one quarter. Too fun.

This one was made for my brother. I started it maybe 2 years ago. The poor thing has sat in my ufo pile for so long. I pulled it out and tried to get it finished for his birthday. But that came and went. I finished the quilt up and gave it to him the other day. I think he liked it. But non of us are very good at showing our excitement.
This quilt was made for a friend who had a little baby girl this week. It is nice to know that some things don't take me forever to complete. This was made in 2 days. I even tried my hand at free motion quilting. It went ok. Some stitches are a bit spaced out. But I have never done one this size. Just doll size. I am not ready for a twin yet but maybe one day soon I will take that leap.

Halloween was spent at Disneyland with the kids all dresses up. Madelyn was Minnie Mouse, Wyatt was Jack Skellington and Lucas was Spiderman. They all looked too cute. Because there was no Trick-or-Treating we took them to the candy store on Main Street and let them pick a few sugar filled treats.

I am behind on all my swaps, so sorry everyone things will be in the mail soon. I was able to get most of a quilt done for my brothers birthday. I made the top long ago but had never gotten around to quilting it. So I am happy to be down to sewing on the binding. His birthday is the 14th so I have a few more days. this one was made out of the super popular gnome fabric by heather Ross. When I saw that fabric a few years back I knew it had to be a quilt for my brother. I will get a pic before I give it to him.
Wyatt went on his first school field trip Friday. they went to Johnson's farm to pick pumpkins. We had so much fun. I was a brave mommy and let my boy go on the bus with his friends and I followed behind in my car with Lucas. I could have gone on the bus with the class but I had a feeling that all the bumping around on a bus seat would cause my prego tummy to bounce and also the fear of it making me wet my pants. And as funny as that would be, it is not what i want Wyatt to remember about his first field trip.
We fed goats and chickens, went on a hay ride and the kids were able to pick pumpkins off the vine. The kids were all too cute and had so much fun.
My picture are not loading. So sad.

Baby or aka- The Blob
This scan was done at 9 weeks. I am almost at 14 weeks. We will find out if the Blob is a girl or a boy in October. Then this little one will arrive in February. I am a self proclaimed baby junky. I love love love newborns. And really it has been so long, by the time this little one comes along Lucas will be almost 5. I needed a new one before he started school next year. As it is Wyatt starts Kinder on Tuesday. Sniffle. He is so super excited about it. I hope my shy guy does well.
Our summer wasn't as fun as I would have liked. Being sick, we were not able to do as many things as we had planed. We did go to Disneyland at the end of July for Maddie's birthday. We spent 5 days down in Disneyland. We had a great time. I love Disneyland. The weather was great and the crowd's were low for summer. It is a great place for a birthday. I'll add some pics later.

Then when we were finished spending a small fortune on her we went down the street to Urban Outfitters It has got to be one of my favorite stores. Just so much fun. I found some great windup owls on sale. Had to get me one and one for a buddy. They are mystery colored. All closed up in their box. I was lucky enough to get the super awesome green one. I don't have any idea what color miss buddy's owl is. I will have to wait till she gets it. I was tempted to peek but I am being a good girl and I will wait. I also found the great and wonderful Paper Voodoo. So great, how can you go wrong. How many times have you felt the need to put a hex on somebody but you had no idea how. Welcome the paper voodoo doll. Happy me!

Second- I love fabric stores. I have always loved then, but San Antonio really didn't have my kind of store. I called them *country bumpkin* stores. All super Little House On The Prairie kinda flowery. Not my kind of thing. I love big bold prints and lots of color. So all in all shopping in the stores there was not my kinda thing. So online I would go. Fun, but not the instant gratification that going to a shop is. I still check my favorite online shop a lot http://www.fabricworm.etsy.com/ . But I love to go into this shop now that I am back home. http://www.hartsfabric.com/ I think I could live there, or at the very least spend gobs of money. When I walked in last week they had the entire line of the super wonderful Wonderland prints. I was a good girl and I didn't get the whole thing. I wanted to, but I didn't. Now I have to decide what to do with it. Other then a decoration.
Third- I got me a few new toys. A laptop. I don't have room for my desk top out in the main parts of the house. So it has been set up back in my room. When I am back there I cannot hear what shenanigans my very mischievous boys are into. And let me tell you they can make some trouble. So I have not been spending the time I like to with my virtual buddies. Makes me sad. So I got me a new toy. It has taken me a few days and one funny trip back to the store to get it so I know kinda what I am doing. But now I am here and feeling good. But I am telling you the wireless mouse thing was a stumper. The magical Geek Squad dude was wonderful with his cool firework hair and fixed it with a touch of his magical hands. Or proved that technology is not really my thing.
Last of all. I did a personal swap with the wonderful and super amazing LauraJ. She sent me this wonderful little quilt. I am so in love with it. Green being my new obsession. It is beautiful. She also sent that super cute dotty bowl and a calender that will remain photo less because it is of questionable content. Cracks is all I will say. Made me laugh. Some chocolate was also included and disappeared really fast as soon as Lucas saw it. Last of all some pencil cases for the kids. They were very quickly filled with various objects. Thank you Laura, your package will be flying your way tomorrow.
