HAPPY SPRING! I made this cute little spring decor thingy while my kids played in the backyard. I am so thankful that it is warming up. Ethan sat in the swing outside for 45 mins. That was the first time in about 2 weeks that he has been content for that long. I am thankful for a great backyard and lots of little kids to play in it.
Funny story. I was using the scroll saw to cut this sign out and one of the little boys came to look at what I was doing. He was chatting away and his brain decided to say "my mom is skinny." I said, "yes she is." Because I was in a good mood I decided to bait him and ask him what that made me. He thought for a minute and said, "My mom says we shouldn't say fat." I just about wet myself I was laughing so hard. Lets call a duck a duck! I am fluffy cause I LOVE food and I don't exercise. I was not blessed with a high metabolism. I love to eat the wrong things and the wrong times. Any time that I exercise I end up wetting myself and I don't love to do it anyway. What am I supposed to think is going to happen to my body? Someday, I will lose weight. Someday, but not today!

Hey Lorie! Look what I can do!
This pettiskirt has made me loose sleep. I have wanted to make one and have it be FABULOUS for about a month now. This one doesn't have super fabulous quality to it, but hey, I know how to make them now! I used some extra material that I had in my stash of fabric. This fabric is called Tricot and if you know my family, you know that this is what defined my childhood. Carson was addicted to his tricot blanket that my grandmother made for him. I still have mine too. Anyway, it made me smile working with this fabric, it make me want to cuddle up to this skirt and take a little nap. I have some more fabric on order and will new pettiskirts in my Etsy store. soon I can't wait until spring time to take pics with these outside!

Reasons #275 & 276 that I adore Madyson..... She is always making me laugh. I NEED to get a video clip of her skipping. She is hysterical!!!!! Funny things she has said lately:
1. This one is her pulling what we like to call a "Grandma Jonesy"
This morning Carson wanted some mandrin oranges for breakfast. The brand on them is Cutie so that is what we call them. I said, "do you want 1 or 2 cuties?" He says 2 and goes to get his shoes on. A few minutes later, Mady being a little mother yells out, "Carson, your sweeties are ready." OK so my family will be the only ones to understand why that is SUPER DUPER FUNNY! With Mady's new hair cut she looks just like my mom. It is no wonder why she is acting like her too!
2. She is always asking for food, imagine that, most kids do. If she has JUST eaten, I tell her that she isn't hungry, she is just bored. She comes walking out of her room the other day and says "oh, I am thirsty, I want some water." I just look at her and she says, "Oh wait a minute, I forgot, I am just bored." OK Mad, whatever you say!
I love this little girl! She is going to be my gal pal forever and I am so thankful that she is who she is.

I am adding more things to my Etsy store! I cut these out for a friend of mine and figured since the work is done, I might as well try to sell some. Thanks to my hunk of burnin' love for working so hard for me up yesterday. He is so crafty!

I hate not posting pic with my blog entries but I love all of you WAY too much to post of pic of what happened to me today. As soon as the closing song in Sacrament meeting started, I left to get my room set up for the nursery kids. As soon as I got to the door, my skirt fell around my ankles! Let me tell you what the cultural hall of my new ward family members saw, me with NO SLIP, just my special undies! I found out from one of my friends, now one of my close friends, that THEY saw what happened, not just she, THEY. I will be collecting $5 from them cause I don't give this crap away for free!!!! I will now being joining the same group as my SIL Emma, she showed her special undies when the wind blew her skirt up at her brothers wedding. The annoying this is, this is the 2nd time this has happened to me. I thought chubby chicks were immuned from this. I need to start wearing tighter clothes!
