Nov. 12, 2010...visiting meme and pawpaw

Henry loved getting to "drive" the lawnmower.

Abigail, wasn't too interested, but was willing to pose for the camera!
I did get her on for a short ride and one quick picture.

Sept 16, 2010...Henry goes to mothers day out

My birthday was Henry's first day of "school." He was excited to go and didn't shed a tear and I will have to say that is was a great birthday present for me too to have a little time to do some things by myself! He is only going one day a week to Advent Presbyterian.

The last two pictures were taken his second day of school with his new Mickey backpack and lunchbox. I bought him a cute small red backpack but realized really quickly we needed the full size with all the blankets, pillow, lunchbox, etc.. he needs to take. This is a first for me because Abigail didn't go to school until she was 3 1/2 and only went 9-12 then. I felt pretty guilty at first, but after seeing how much he misses having Abigail to play with and how much he loves going to play with "the kids" it has worked out great. He even takes a nap there and hasn't been cranky at all!

New Blog

I have started a new blog to help be remember all the applique designs I have used and give me ideas for other projects. For the last year I have been taking pictures of some of the things I have made and just wanted to compile them all together for reference purposes. The blog address is

Henry's birthday, part 3

On Labor Day, we braved the crowds and went to Incredible Pizza at 10:30 in the morning to be the first ones there. We took Meme, Paw Paw, Grammy, Pop and Aunt Lynne with us!
Henry loved Cookie Monster so that was his cake this year.
He had fun opening LOTS of gifts from everybody! Thanks for everything!

Henry's B-day, Part 2

Loves his new tools!

Going to Build a Bear.
In typical Henry fashion he got this hopper ball that you are supposed to sit and hold the handle and jump, but he invents his own fun!

Abigail had her first spirit day at school. It was an exciting day, the kids got to wear jeans and a school t-shirt. They also attended a pep ralley at the high school. That night was elementary night at the football game, open house and book fair. It was crowded and very HOT but it was fun!

Henry actually wanted to be in the picture when he noticed that I was taking one of Abigail. He walked right over and stood next to her, I couldn't believe it. If I had asked him to be in it, you could forget it. I guess reverse psychology works well with him!

Sept. 2, 2010 Henry's B-day part 1

We went to eat at O'Charley's this night and came home to open the gifts from us.
We had cupcakes first, with candles again of course!
Had to have a bath after the blue icing before he was even allowed to tough his gifts. He was a mess!

The weather finally cooled off so we could bear being outside. We played outside after Abigail got home from school nearly everyday this week! Abigail liked to come home from school and pick out her own clothes, since I make her take off her uniforms as soon as she gets home.
Abigail decided to read to Henry outside.
Henry learned a new trick that he thought was pretty fun.
Having fun!

Aug. 10, 2010...First day of Kindergarten

Abigail and her teacher Mrs. Wolters on registration day.(Didn't realize abigail had her eyes closed until I downloaded the picture, but it was a great picture of her teacher so I added it anyway)
Morning work on the first day. Drawing something she did this summer.

Telling Henry goodbye before we left.

So excited to start school. After asking her how her first day was she said "I can't wait to go back tomorrow!"
