Evelyn's Quilt

Today was MoPS, we had a great meeting, doing a mops swap and makeing overnight bags for DHR.  I got a lovely gift from a friend, and a whole bag of baby clothes from the swap!  After MoPS, James and I went down to Nana's house and he played in the back yard while I finished Evie's quilt.  I have been working on it since I knew she was a girl, I am so glad to have it done.  I just love the mermaid fabric, and I am so proud of the applique work I did.

Digging holes

Today the young men and their leaders came over to dig the giant hole that they are going to cook an entire pig in.  Our ward is having a Luau and because they wanted to roast a whole pig in the ground, and they can't on church property, Jon volunteered to host the shingdig.  So there is now a giant pighole in our backyard.   The Luau is Friday, and I hope it turns out good.

Karate pictures

Since day 2 of Hampton Cove Gymnastics was canceled because of the storms last week, today we had our makeup day.  I am glad it is the last day, because I am pooped!

Sick as a dog

Last night Elinor started feeling sick.  She woke up in the morning with a high fever, 102+.  So she stayed home and I made her a Dr. appt.  Later in the morning her temp went up to 103, so we were glad she was home for that.  Dr. did a strep test and it came back positive so we got some antibiotics, redbox movies and some sherbert and ginger ail and took her home.  She basically slept all day.  Poor girl was NOT feeling well.

Ducks and Wall art

Today we stopped by Dublin park on our way home from church.  There was a pokemon raid going on so Jon and I did that while the kids fed the ducks.  Later this afternoon, I went down to Mom's and used her cricket to cut out a wall decal I made up for Evelyn.  I LOVE the way it looks up in her room.

Baby Shower!

Today my sweet friends Janet and Julie threw me a baby shower.  They did an amazing job with everything.  The food was good, the games were fun and the decorations were so cute.  I feel so blessed to have such wonderful and generous friends.  We got lots of amazing things for our sweet baby girl.

Chick fil a

Today I needed to get out of the house, James had lots of energy and I.... didn't.  We went to chick fil a.  A friend of ours needed a little bit of kid-free time, so we kept her daughter with us and when we were done, we brought her home.
