My Husband Went Deer Hunting...

and was much more sucessful than last year.

We won't be eating him (sorry, Gauntlets) because of the way that the Great Hunter shot him and the facts that he's old and has been fighting. But there are still two and a half weekends and two full weeks of deer rifle season left for the Great Hunter to get a nice tender doe.

Because I Must Be Bored

Chasing a toddler, growing a newbie, working full time, and housewifing aren't taking up enough of my time. So I let my friends talk me into taking up quilting

Here are my Top Three choices.
We should know Ralphy's gender by the time the quilt along starts, but if not, I'll just have to make myself a quilt in a throw size out of these fabrics:
Or make this one for Ralphy (I think that I can make a crib sized quilt AND whip up some sort of bumper):
But, if Ralphy's a Ralphie, I could make her this one (I LOVE it and it would coordinate with Callie's stuff without being too matchy matchy):

oh, yeah, Halloween?

We got a Halloween Outfit instead of an actual costume. Second year running, because I'm a neglectful mom like that. :)
Haley got one, too, but her mom loves her more than I love Callie - she got to change into a nifty clown costume and go trick or treating later.
Did either girl look at the camera for documentary pictures?

Well...... not at the same time. Callie hasn't learned her "Cheese!" face yet.

My Notmykid (and His Fiancee)

Pictures taken by Moi. They make you want me to take yours, huh?
I love this kid. Actually, I love them both, but I'm particularly attached to the boy. :) I'm so proud of the sweet, considerate, caring person that he's grown up to be.
