Holy moly

Today I'm being featured on Moda Bake Shop!!!!

This is like a personal crafting dream of mine.  I love checking out MBS and all the cool projects is a big deal for me and a big deal for our blog!! (At least I think it is)

Moda Bake Shop: it is mostly sewing tutorials.  A lot of quilt tutes, but not exclusively.  They have tutorials on kids clothing, home decor, you name it.  Moda is a fabric distributor and manufacturer.  It is called a bake shop because Moda offers pre-cut fabrics, ie Layer Cakes, Jelly Rolls, Charm Packs, Dessert Rolls...fabrics that are already cut to a certain size for you.

Anyway you can go over and check out my tutorial, maybe even comment? :)

My brothers and their families came over Easter weekend to visit.  It was a blast.  Sawyer and Ollie had 8 cousins playing with them non-stop, we went bowling, ate out, saw a movie, celebrated Easter, went swimming, swimming and more swimming.  Apparently it is STILL SNOWING in Utah!!  My brother Dan and his family kept extending their trip because they couldn't stand the thought of going back to the snow!!

I didn't get very many pictures this weekend.  I'm in a bit of a media crisis right now.  There's some kind of issue with each of our cameras and video camera.  Boo.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how excited do you think Sawyer is about his Easter candy?

For your general viewing pleasure, blue bunny shaped pancakes for breakfast:

And the Easter bunny was quite thoughtful and got the boys super hero jams.

Just a little more than 2 weeks until quilt market...EEEK!!!!!

Just keep swimming! Just keep swimming!

Mr. Sawyer is growing up!!  It's exciting that he's old enough to be able to do classes and things, but at the same time it makes me a little sad.  Is that bad?  Because I know that Ollie is just around the corner from being able to do all the same things too.

Well it's pretty much illegal in AZ for your kids to not know how to swim.  Not really, but as much as we're at the pool, I would  love for him to be a great swimmer.  I never learned how to really swim, but daddy and grandpa are great swimmers, so it must be in him, right?

His first class he got nervous half way through and wanted his life jacket back on and to swim with me and Ollie.  But after a pep talk with daddy, he did great the second time.  He's really proud of himself actually. Here are some pics I got with my camera phone.

In other news...he totally bites his nails!!!  And has for several months.  I had no idea a 3 year old could develop such bad habits.  What do you do?  We tell him to stop whenever we see it, but of course he finds plenty of time to do it.  He says he doesn't want any white on his nails...great.

Maybe taking pictures of it isn't the best idea?  Oops. :)
