My first blanket!

I started thinking of things that I could do for Jayven for Christmas and one thing that came to my mind was a rag quilt. So my friends and her sisters do a craft day on Wednesdays so I started going down and they taught me how to do it! I was really excited, in the first day I got most of it done, I just needed to sew the rows together, but I ran out of time and no sewing machine. :( I was kinda scared cause I didn't know if I would be able to do it by myself and without a sewing machine, So my sweet mother in law let me use hers. She told me I could actually have it but when she wanted to use it I had to let her. But, good for me she has sewn one thing with this machine and it was when her hubby ripped his pants and she didn't know how to even do it! So I don't think i'll have to share too much... Well, I got it up and running and I got it finished last night! I am so excited.. I need to snip the edges to make them fray but other than that I am DONE!! I am actually already started on another one.. I really like this... My poor son though.. No time with mommy.. So here are a few pics..

Utah State Fair!!

Here is my cute little cowboy! He loved to see the cows, he is actually "moooing" at him.. The cow sneezed and scared him away so he isn't right next to him anymore. But we did get to pet him. It was so cute to see Jayven actually go up to him. :)
Lets move away from the cow!!! He started going to the bathroom!! Jayven pointed at him and said "cuck" and then started walking away! He is getting so big!

Socks Didn't Last Long!!

So today, I finally got rid of that dang cat! And ya wanna know why? James told me to!! I was so excited to hear those words from him. I was going to take her to the Humane Society today but James put her out side and she ran away. I was actually upset cause I didn't want a stray someplace without a home. So I watched for her and the neighbor kids across the street had her so I went over there and they wanted her so we no longer have the kitten! I will NEVER get a cat again and I think the cat changed James' mind about "cute cats". So we are all good! I hope no one has this problem, but if you do, let it live with you for a week and you'll understand... Now I just need to work on getting rid of Snuggles! :)

The unexpected New member of our family!!!

Ok so I never thought this would happen and for some of you will think the same way (Becky). We were at the Peach Days parade on friday night when this wagon went by with a sign that says "free kittens" I said NO before James could say anything!! He wined to me for like an hour, SERIOUSLY well, they were long gone down the road and so I said fine, but Im not going to get it you'll have to. So, He did!! He got to them and they had 3 left. I have to admit they were cute but not cute enough to bring home to my house. I am not a fan of the cat hair, the litter box smell, or the cat for that matter. So, we have a new kitten she is 7 1/2 weeks old and her name is Socks. We will see how long she lasts here. She has already gotten lost in the heater vent, she has snuck outside when Jayven left the door open! I am just not ready for her... James and Jayven on the other hand LOVE her. Even snuggles likes her. We'll see... But here's a picture..

Daddy's helper!!

So the other day we took down a wall in our family room downstairs and James had to sand down one of the corners cause of the drywall putty and Jayven saw him do it so when James turns around Jayven heads right for the sand paper! It was so cute! We had the radio on also and jayven has got the singing thing down!! :) here are some pictures!
