Craft madness

wooden houses

 Prizes I won!

Finished blanket
My sister holds a craft madness event every four months. I love going. It's time away with dedication to anything I need to complete without any interruptions. The event started Friday night at 7pm and I left Saturday at 5pm. The only break I took was to sleep for 3 hours and take shower. In a 24 hour period I made: Three personalized houses, necklace, candy pouches, and Brecklyn's Elmo blanket. Also in the mean time there was "wow technique" classes, drawings every hour for prizes, midnight madness, "hoot" drawings and lots of food!!!

Whit and Brecklyn were out on a walk and found this baby bird. It was shivering and really weak. We tired to warm it up and feed it, but it wouldn't eat or let us do much for it. We debated for a bit to keep it and nurse it back to health...... no more animals in this home. Even if we tried I don't think it would have made it through the night. We wished it luck and placed it in a safe place in hopes it would survive.

Conference Weekend

Ran errands all day Saturday(going out for lunch, getting our hair done, grocery shopping) thanks to DVR we watched all of conference on Sunday. 
We watched Sophia for the weekend. B loved being "the big sister" She helped make her bottles, bed, change her, read her books, and entertained her too:)
I love to cook while listening to the talks. I made more homemade salsa, peanut butter bars, chicken enchiladas, all for Sunday dinner at the in laws.

Our new best friend

B's favorite new friend that she got on her birthday.

Monday, September 26, 2011


B had an awesome birthday!!! The theme this year was Elmo, if you couldn't tell. Elmo is her life, she askes to watch CinderElmo a million times a day. She's even got to the point to pretend she is sick so she can lay on the couch with her blanky and watch Elmo. Sneaky girl... Anyways, first off, she got breakfast in bed and then opened a new princess crown and shoes to wear all day. She was extra excited her birthday landed on a Sunday(church day). I told her she could wear her crown and shoes to church but she insisted they stay home where they would be safe.... We had a small get together, oops, with family it's never small, but that's what made it SO fun!! Whit's sister Anna made the HUGE Elmo cake. She did amazing job, super talented! Ate lots of food, opened presents, and played outside. Justin and Annie gave B a fish. Guess what she choose to name her fish? Oh.... Elmo. We now have "Elmo da fish".

Brecklyn started preschool a few weeks ago. She goes Monday and Wednesdays from 10-12. She is learning the alphabet, so when she comes home she tells me about the new letter she learned and it's sound. It's so weird to take her to school. All the other kids in her class are 3, but she fits right in. It's so good for her to have time with her friends and for me to have MY time too!
