Totally Faking Sleep

 

 

Quentin really is a ham and is very good at faking sleep…Grandpa plays along anytime too!
We took Christmas to Seattle early as it was our “Off” year.  I did want to see the kids open their quilts though.  Hillary says that he sleeps with it every night.

 

This is not a fake and just look how very sweet that is…so worth all the hours of cutting, sewing and unpicking and sewing some more!

Quentin’s Quilt is DONE!

DONE!!!  This was definitely my first quilt that required time and more time!  I love how it turned out and I hope that it becomes one of Quentins favorite comforts!

 

Mother’s Day Week

Its been a wonderful week leading up to Mother’s Day and then Mother’s Day weekend…its been wonderful because I have spent it with a couple of my children!! 


To start the week off right Hillary and Quentin came to visit on Thursday…we had such a fun fun time.  Spent the weekend in Monterey at the aquarium, Q seemed very uncomfortable with most if not all of the sea creatures.

From the aquarium we went to the beach…windy, cool but sunny and the kids loved it!!
 
 
Saturday we went to San Francisco to a Giants game…AWESOME seats and perfect weather!
 
 
During the week we went to a park called Happy Hallow…Q wasn’t too happy most of the time as again, there were animals that he wasn’t really interested in getting to know better!!
 
 
 
Friday the doorbell rang and a HUGE surprise was smiling back at me….Haylie!!  What a wonderful wonderful surprise!!!  Don and Haylie planned this weeks ago and what a nice surprise for me!!!
 
We drove down to Santa Cruz on Saturday…sunny, cool and windy…but beautiful for sure!!!
Sunday was Mother’s Day Which means my missionary gets to call home!  Doesn’t he look great and he sounded just as great!  I miss him so much but I am so proud of him and he is loving being in Guatemala!!  Tomorrow are transfers, his companion is going home, so changes are in his future!
 
Mom, mother, mommy, grandma….those are my favorite words in the whole english language!!

Merry & Bright??

This photo shoot didn’t turn out quite like Hillary and I imagined…besides the fact that Q loved the lights and started swinging them…surprise, they broke, we just couldn’t get him to stop moving.  Why is it that pinterest makes it look sooooo easy??  We need to do a take two, and then use lights that won’t brake!
