A short absence

Hello my friends.

Due to a very unexpected death in the family, I'll be away from my blog for a while. Don't worry though, I'll be back soon.

Something New

We bought something new last night.

It's red.

It came on a delivery truck this morning.

Nathan was this excited when the truck arrived.....

with this little cutie on it!

A red lawn tractor. The one that Nathan picked out.

SO excited!

And me, being all too serious, giving it a test drive around the yard.

Good Mail

I am terribly behind in so many things, one of which is posting photos and thank yous for some Good Mail that I received recently.

Cindy sent me a little package with a vintage, space-themed pillow kit and a pattern for some baby things. She also sent a box of gummy Centipedes for Nathan. Those seem to have disappearted before I could get around to taking a photo.

Le Anne emailed me a while ago to tell me there was a package on it's way. Then, she asked me if I like fabric scraps. I had no idea that she was sending me an 11 pound box of fabrics!

I had a great time going through all the different fabrics and thinking of what I might use them for. They're all good size pieces, so they'll be useful in a lot of projects.

Thank you Cindy and Le Anne! It's always nice to get Good Mail from friends. :)

Little Girly Birthday Gifls

Nathan was invited to a birthday party for one of the girls in his class yesterday. I suggested we go pick out a present together.

He had other ideas.

"Mommy, you need to make her a crayon roll and a tote bag. And I can help!"

Well, of course I have to. What was I thinking?

Did I mention that we had this conversation the night before the party?

What to do, what to do......better toss on the Super Mom cape!

Finished bag and crayon roll. (Minutes before rushing out the door to the party!)

I made the crayon roll with a flap this time, to hold the crayons in when the roll is tossed around.

When present time rolled around, the mom picked up the (rolled up) crayon roll and asked what it was. Nathan very proudly said, "It's a crayon roll. My mom made it.".

Awww. :)
