I was trying to think of a fun way to announce the news but I am blank. So I will show you the bedding I just ordered :)

I have some very excited children. My mom ran out first thing to baby Gap and bought one a lot like this

We are very happy to see that the baby is healthy and growing. God is good.

blog? What blog.........

Wow. I did not realize it had been so long. I had made a couple of small changes lately and have not been online as much.

I did do some clothes shopping online. WHile I have a ton of maternity clothes from past babies, by the time you have the baby you are pretty well sick of those items. Well at least I am. And the fact that I keep forgetting to have hubby go into the attic to get my boxes of maternity things. I did some shopping. Old Navy and some from Gap. Gap had the cutest skirts! and some of those nice long shorts. Got to cover these legs I tell ya.

What else have I been doing? Well 2 weeks ago I had 6 of my cousins 8 children while her almost 2 y/o had surgury. Our children all had a great time playing. I have to say I was worn out by the time they left :) Being pregnant and keeping up house and feeding not 9 but 15 children was a lot of work. The funny thing? No fights between cousins just the normal sibling wars :)

Did you see the new fabric line coming out from Heather Bailey? Yummy!

I went to a crop on Saturday with 2 friends. Had so much fun. and I even made it until 10:00 pm. :) Did 2 single page layouts and 2 double page layouts. I need to take pictures before I can share any :)

I will try to have hubby take a belly shot this week. My mom arrived a week ago and her eyes popped out of her head when she saw how big I am already. :) 20 weeks and 3 days. Count down to the ultrasound? 3 days!!!!!!!!!!1

Has anyone seen my spoons?

Please tell me I am not the only one with kids that do this. I had noticed several months back that our spoon supply was running short. Hummmmmmmm. So I bought 16 more at Target. So we roughly had those 16 + 16 more. 32 spoons seems like a good number. The other morning I went to get out the spoons for cereal. We had 7 spoons. I look in the dishwasher. Nope no spoons. Very curious. So while at Sam's Club that day we happened by the restaurant supply area. 36 sppons for 8$. I spent 16$ at Target for the 16. So we are pretty well stocked up. Of course they do not match the rest of our set. But beggars cannot be choosers. Hubby did find 4 in the backyard in the dirt. I suppose the rest of them are buried. Maybe they are being used for a treasure hunt?

Do you love pretty, frilly or funky aprons? I found the best book the other day.

I bought mine here: Barnes and Noble at my local store. But you can find it here too.

The only downside is that you have to take the pattern into a print shop to print at 400 %. But the cost at kinkos was 2.50 for each print. SO fairly cheap. I went ahead and printed up 3 patterns. I am making a smock type apron first. It will be for my 10 y/o that asked for an apron for her birthday. The book does have 2 children's patterns but they are for the little ones. I figured that the smock style would be fine for my daughter.SOme really fun aprons in this book. Now to dust off my sewing machine.
