Ultra sound technician:
It looks like its a boy!
Oh wait that might have been just the cord.
We'll double check. Yep its a boy!
He is such a active little guy, he wont hold still! (her excuse why all the
ultra sound pictures are blurry!)

Taylor: Yayyyyyyy!!!
Me: We have to go shopping! Babies can be boys? Cant quite imagine it!

Winter crafts

My mom wanted to see this quilt I made for one of Kenny's bff's. He said he wanted a real "Mormon made quilt." So he sent me all the 501's and dickies he had been saving, haha. I probably wont ever offer to do that again. But anyways sewing is always a lesson on how to be detail oriented because I am not that way at all!
Purse I made out of a chair cover wedding gift we never used.
There was this family in our stake where the parents of 10 were hit by a car of someone on drugs, and the dad died and the mom was in the hospital for a month without much health insurance, and the dad didn't have life insurance, so we had a charity auction, so sad. I forgot to take a picture of the finished quilt, but if we are having a boy I want to make his bedding with these colors.
I inherited this chair from my sister in law, sold my glider I didn't like, and used the money to re finish this. There are a few issues with this chair and I haven't put a clear coat on yet. I wish I would have practiced the antiquing on a board or something first.....oh well its finally done! But I will chalk it up to a learning experience, and it will look good enough in Brynne's room.
