St. George

So this past weekend we had the opportunity to go down to St. George for one last hooray before baby Maverick (:~) I mean Paxton comes along. Katie arranged the whole thing and we had a great time. I kept telling her thanks, but she told me to stop telling her that. So, I decided to type it. Thanks Katie!

The only lame part is that we didn't even bring our camera. I just pulled this pic off the internet for those who know what went down. :) Next time it will be huge!
p.s. A big thanks to Tyler and Kelly for their hospitality as well.

I would have to agree...we are ready for Spring and Summer!!

Prez Day

I think that was the holiday on Monday...too many Monday holidays to keep them straight! We decided to go bowling to make the day pass a little faster. Lillie has really come to love bowling and she has begged and begged to go since Grandpa Augers birthday.

I don't think I have really ever seen my sister do anything athletic so I had to get a pic of it!!

Allie was the winner! Who knew she could bowl!

Picture of the gang!

So the story goes like this!

Walking through Swiss Days back in September and I see this quilt that I LOVE! They are selling it for $80 and I think to myself I can make this and the pattern is only $8! I buy the pattern! I immediately buy all the fabric the week after Swiss Days and I am so pumped!





January....My neighbors finally said we are going to finish this quilt before the baby gets here! So, the madness begins!

7 1/2 hours of cutting it out
1 hour trying to figure out the heat on
$8.25 on 100 STRAIGHT PINS
1 hour trying to figure out the patterns dumb measurements
13 or so hours of sewing
Multiple trips to JoAnns' and Gracie Lou's
1 hour of cutting the edges

and this is what you get...............

(I can't believe I am posting this pic...sick)
Once again a sick picture of me but it just turned out so dang cute!

Thank you to all of those who helped! I think the baby will LOVE it! If he doesn't then I think I know a little 4 yr. old that will!!!
