motivation!

nothing like a lot of this:

keeping you snowbound, to feel extra productive!  We've been getting a lot of snow this year.  It's nice when I don't feel like I have to go anywhere!  I put dinner in the crockpot and had the rest of the day to do whatever I wanted!

So I got a little cutting done:
a long lost project finished up (this had been languishing in my UFO pile for years):
Really, why do I wait so long, it took me less than 30 minutes to iron this up again and stitch up.  I forget how tricky rayon is to work with, though.

and this little guy turned 2 on Sunday!
That cake was delicious! Duncan Hines Lemon (made with milk instead of water), lemon curd filling, homemade cream cheese icing. Mmmmmm.

At the moment he's really into trucks, Elmo, Veggie Tales, cake, smarties, and well, food in general.  He's also talking up a storm, having an opinion, and has learned to crawl out of his crib.  Uh oh!   He's such a happy guy, he's always excited to start the day. Makes it easier for me to want to get up too!  He is our sweet little guy and a true snuggle bug.  We are so lucky to have him in our family!
What do you do all day when you are forced to stay at home?

happy birthday to your boy!

I have been staying home a lot lately due to family budget tightness. Things I do: read, sew, yoga, go online, talk on the phone :).

I go crazy with my 4 kids letting out all their energy around me! I shoveled the driveway, and worked on the computer. YAWN!

Happy birthday! Our 2 1/2 year old grandson stays with us every other weekend, and we have spent many happy days inside this winter reading books, playing with cars, building with Lego and drawing. When he gets bored, we open up some of my boxes with buttons or notions; that keeps him occupied for a while. He is a very happy kid too, so the days fly by.

I LOVE being able to stay home for a day (although it's never because of snow these days!). I usually dye outside for awhile, with the kids playing (or swimming in the pool when it's warm, which it SO OFTEN is!) and then we're in, I'm upstairs sewing and the boys are happy doing what they do - Wii, new adventure games, reading books, playing computer games, baking cookies....

Sigh...wish I got stuck at home more!

ANd happy day to your little one!
