Miss Me....I do too!

So I've been absolutely terrible in keeping up with posting the last little bit.
Yep I admit it, I have a problem.
Well in order to rectify this problem and to keep you all up on life here in our household, I'm going to try and do a weekly post update on everything.
I've just not been feeling the computer lately.
Really just have no desire to even turn it on, so it stays off.
But I don't want to keep all my dedicated readers to get discouraged by me.
And I need to keep a family journal so when the end of the year comes, I have an easy reference to head to for the family album.

*Life this week*
My favorite holiday ever!!!
Great yummy food!
This was a weird year though, I've never not seen my family on Thanksgiving.
Well they all deserted me and my brood for North Dakota, for my sister's and brother in laws reception.
That's ok though, it was a good reason.
I guess I have to grow up some time and strike out on my own someday right?
I also had another first.
Black Friday.
Very entertaining....very....
And yes I did score what I was after.
What else have we been doing?
Selling calves, hauling steers to the butcher, 5 glorious days of Koda having days off, craft fairs, and the state Farm Bureau convention.
Yep its been a lot of fun.

Well Melody is quite the girl.
She wants to crawl, but can only do the superman posture, hasn't figured out the ladybug posture yet.
So to get to something she wants she does a back scoot.
I hope it doesn't wear all her hair off her head!
But it is so cute!!
Random note--None of my girls have been big rollers.
Daisy did it one time and then started crawling.
Page and Melody did/do it a little bit, but not very much.

Page is Daisy's little shadow still.
They are seriously the dynamic duo.
They are fighting like banshee's.
Someday's it is exhausting!
Page's hand is doing very welll, and is healing just like it is suppose too.

Daisy is talking more and more in sentences.
It's so fun to hear.
She knows most of the letter sounds, but their names she refuses to divulge.
And the ABC's song....haha...not a chance.
She also is counting everything in sight, (which Page copycats).
OH and in case you didn't know, She's three!

*Sewing Projects*
I've been doing a few projects lately.
Here is a custom apron for a friend of mine.
Darling right???
I'm also making a Christmas stocking for a friend of mine's baby girl.
It's all hand work and has sequins.
It is going to be way cute when I get it done.
Here is what I have accomplished so far.
Two trees.
:) I get to do the third tree tonight.
Guess how many hours already spent on this?
Six and a half.
I've got a long ways to go.

*Current Book*
This is the book I'm currently reading.
I like it so far.

Entertaining, but a light read.
Great for the busy months.

Well hope all is well your way!
And I'll catch back up next Sunday!

T & T's Quilt

The day Trevor married my sis-in-law Teagan.
Oh man does he have his hands full!!!

So in true loving fashion I sewed them up a snuggle quilt.
I toyed with the idea of doing two smaller snuggle quilts.
But then I remembered....
-They were young
-Didn't have children yet
....therefore, 2 quilts was just going to turn into 1.

See for an ole lady like me, with three children, I would definitely take the two quilts and put the husband on the couch and me on the recliner.
I know what happens when the weather is cold outside and there is only one quilt in the house.

Anyways, back to T & T.
They like camo.
They like hunting.
They like green.
They like orange.
So here is their awesome quilt!!

OH and yes there is elk on the back.
Did I get a picture of that.
hahaha no way.

This is also the first quilt I've ever had someone else quilt.
I thought I would feel terrible and guilty about it since I didn't do it all.
But with sewing all the girls dresses too (7 total!)
I sent it out.
And guess what????

I LOVE IT!!!!!

OH ya.....may just do that more often, so much less stressful, and the quilter I used, knows her stuff!!!

Well T & T are now freshly back from their honeymoon.
And Teagan didn't get sequestered in a Mexican Jail (believe me AMAZING!)
But she did get chased by an iguana....I have no idea....frankly I don't think I want to know.....

I was going to write an awesome post.
I can't remember what it was.
I'll try again later.

T is for Turtle

T is for Turtle!!
We did this over the past two weeks.
Mostly because I was lazy. 
Here the girls (22 mnths & 3.5yrs) are coloring T is for turtle pages.

Here Daisy is doing turtle pre-writing.
This was probably her favorite this week.

Size Sorting.
Getting much better at this one.
I still have to do a lot of talking through it for them though.

Tt sorting.
She knows how to do this very well.
So she thinks she should trick me up and act like she doesn't and always puts the big T on the little t spot and visa versa.
Here in the picture I think she is telling me she needs the camera, not me.

This is my favorite this week.
Here is Daisy's first actual drawing!!!
If you can't tell it's a mermaid and a fish.
The straight lines at the bottom are her fin and then the lines on top are her hair. 

 Here is her other two mermaids she drew for me.
I think she did quite well. :)

In other news, the girls have discovered the joy of coloring. 
And they now think they should color all over EVERYTHING!!!
I've never had this problem.
But I suppose that is because Daisy never wanted to color until recently.
She was to busy jumping off of everything.
So I want to know....what's the best thing to take crayon off?
Oh and yes they help clean up the mess....they think its fun.....

I'm linking up to Tot School!
See what others have been up too!!

Eye Candy

I just love new fabric.
Really I walk into a fabric store and all my worries are forgotten.
Future Apron
Well until I go to pay for my fabric, and realize I'm once again poor.
Ahh, but the beautful fabric makes me smile.
Diaper Bag
If only I had all the time in the world.
Look at my some projects I need to get done in the next few months.
Nursing Cover
 If I only had a ton of money to waste in the store.
For now I'll just drool in the store.
And limit myself to somewhat realistic measures.

P is for Pumpkins

I'm apologizing in advance for the less then steller pictures.
I don't know what the deal was.
The week before Halloween we did a P is for Pumpkin week!
It was fun.
Daisy is 3.5 years, Page is 23 Months.
We did coloring pages.
Look at how well Daisy is tracing letters.
This is a VERY recent development.
How exciting!!
I helped Page with her tracing, But she does great too!
Daisy also did the tracing pages great! 
She loved doing them and would write, wipe, write, wipe, and on and on.
We also did pumpkin color matching. 
I'm working with Page to learn her colors.
It's pretty easy, especially with older sister giving her the answer. :)
We also made a pumpkin craft.
In other words, we drew some circles, cut them out, glued them down, cut the stems, glued them down and wrote P is for Pumpkins.
Lot of work for mom. 
But they enjoyed it!
Daisy also did all of her own circles and cut most of them out.
Truly I'm amazed, for a month ago, no way.

They also had lots of fun with Do-A-Dot pages.
They really enjoy making the letters.
They also like to just have free form dot painting.
Go figure.
They also got out the cupcake felt activity bag that we got from a swap hosted here.
Didn't they do really good at making their own cupcakes? Especially with no help from me!!
We are linking up to TotSchool! Check out what others have been up to!

We had such a fun Halloween this year.
The girls got to be dressed up all day long!
They were the three little ladybugs.
Adorable right??
We went grocery shopping & Daisy's dance class.
And then the main event trick-or-treating!!
We visited Grandma L in the care center.
Nama at work, Grandma S at her house.
Came home, unloaded the groceries, made some scones, and headed to our wards trunk-or-treat.
Which was a total BLAST!!!
We then went and seen Grandma Teresa and Grandpa Scott.
And on the way home they fell asleep.
Koda and I had a wonderful long conversation about everything!
Seriously one of the best nights ever!!!
Next morning I woke up cleaned the house, did the laundry, and finished the flower girl dress I was making for my SIL's wedding!

I know I'm late and everyone is onto gratitude thoughts, but
