Co-op Graduation Video

Maddox's co-op graduation was last week. The video starts out with him practicing in the car on the way, then shows the program. Maddox is wearing a white polo and dark blue shorts.

What We've Been Up To...

We have been BUSY!

We got the house painted, laminate flooring down everywhere,
the slate tile down in the kitchen,
landings, and hearth, and got the fireplace done.

Cut back the rose bushes that didn't do very well through the winter, and planted some flowers.

Maddox fell asleep waiting for the "lumberjacks" to come cut down the trees out back.

Got Maddox's new swing set put together...

....And tested.

Got the new fence put up. Wood in the back, vinyl out front.

Got the back yard cleared and leveled.

Practiced riding a bike.

Shop got delivered.
Shawn really excited, until...
...the forklift operator hit our house with it.

Shawn and Maddox got hair cuts.

I got a wallhanging made.

Duncan has his knee replaced and is doing well.
Sophie is just Sophie.

Won Again...And Free Samples!

So I won again! I won a prize pack of outdoor products to include Sidewalk Crayons, Rainbow Rake, and 3D Jungle Safari Activity Set from Crayola and Mudpies and Mary Janes!

On a different note, I have discovered that if you go over HERE, Walmart has a list of products that you can request a free sample of. Nothing is better than free. It takes 4 weeks to get your samples, but they're free so who's complaining?! So far I have a new hearing aid battery coming for my Grandpa, pull ups, perfume, lotion, sunscreen...the list goes on. You should check it out.

Something Different

I made Apple Fritters this morning. My Dad always talks about my Great Grandma's Doughnuts so I thought I'd try to make some. I got this recipe from Rachael Ray's magazine and they turned out pretty well. I used Splenda instead of sugar so they weren't super sweet.

Caught Up!

I joined the One a Day Quilt Along over at Crazy Mom Quilts yesterday, four days behind. I'm not behind anymore, this week's blocks are DONE!
I also got my blocks done for WSQ (Washington State Quilters). These four blocks will be in the raffle quilt at the 2010 Quilt Show. They aren't due until the September meeting but I'm ahead of schedule, for once. This is what I have been doing today.
