Two More Blocks!

Today was Hunter's 6th birthday! We spent alot of SPECIAL time today. We didn't do anything major just spent time just me and the boys. I think I have done pretty good today, NO NAP! This is the third day in a row, I think, that I haven't had to take a nap. Maybe my Thyroid medication is finally the right dosage. I guess we will have to wait and see...

I have some photos of the boys! I get out of the shower and I catch them both doing something that they shouldn't be. Here is Hunter, eating ice cream....right out of the bucket, no bowl!!!

And here is Andrew, drinking Dt Pepsi right out of the 2 liter bottle. What is it about boys???

I got some good mail today!! Gina, sent me a package! Actually I needed her help on a project that I am working on. I'll tell all of the details on that when I get it finished. But in the package she added 2 quilting magazines from the UK. They have some beautiful quilts and wonderful fabrics in them. I really enjoyed looking at them.

I also got to work a little bit on my Civil War Diary Quilt today!!! I made 2 blocks. This first one is called "Alarming Conditions" It is actually the first block in the first row. I don't know what it was about this block but it took me 2 hours to finish it. I HATE Y-seams! It wasn't really a hard block but I just kept messing it up! Anyway it is done, not perfect, but done.

This second block is called "Conscript Law" First row, block 3. A very simple block! I am loving making these blocks!

These two blocks take me up to 45 blocks! 45 down and 76 more to go!!!! I may try to do a few more tomorrow!!!!

Mom and Chantal are at Virginia Beach for the week! I just talked to them and they seem to be having a great time! They will be back on Saturday. I am dog watching for them! Chantal has a teacup poodle, actually you can see her sitting on the couch in the photo with Hunter's ice cream. Her name is Zoey and she and Donkey love to play together!

Your blocks look great, and what nice gifts from Gina!

Glad Hunter had a great birthday!

It's not just boys who eat straight from the ice cream tub and drink from the bottle. Grown men do aswell. I've given up trying to train him .
The envelope got to you really quick. I only posted it late last week. Glad you like the magazines.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Glad to hear the meds seem to have helped. Although, I do love a good nap, I don't want to feel like I have to have one. The boys look happy!

I am sure they wished you took a longer shower.

See, Mike and I don't eat the same flavor so we totally eat it out of the carton when we have it. I can make a pint last forever though. I'm not a big at home ice cream eater. I had a pint of Egg Nog ice cream that I finished in about March. I can't wait to see what you're working on!! Man..I suck. I need to go to the post office but I'm so mad at the post office that I haven't gone yet. I'm sooooooo sorry. I"ll go, really I will...and soon.

But don't you love those boys...we know you have tryed to train them better.

As always the blocks take a blue ribbon. You have so much talent.

Have a fun 4th.
