It is Scrapbook and Quilting Season in Heber CIty!

I took this picture for my sister and anyone else who was appalled at my last shopping spree at The Thrift Store. I actually went to a trendy store and the best part is, I bought something!! Yes, don't keel over Tori. But if you look at the picture closely, you will see that I shopped on the $4.99 rack!! I can't help it, I love a bargain. Why spend $36 on a shirt when you can pay $5?? Anyway, I bought 3 shirts and spent 20 bucks, cute shirts even!! But I will be going back to The Thrift Store, I guarantee that!

Okay, it is time to get out the scrapbook paper and fabric! Snow has arrived in our little valley and I don't think I am quite ready for that yet, but I really need to get busy with inside things now. You know, cleaning behind the stove, giving the laundry room a well needed spiff job, washing walls and baseboard, all the stuff that got neglected during the summer and gardening season. I also get to catch up a little more with my scrapbooking. Since I started quilting, I am so far behind in the picture books of our lives!!
This is Kendal being pulled by Kelsey. She loved it so much, she just laid down and watched the cloudy sky go by.

Kelsey wiping the snow off of our poor freezing pumpkins!

We don't have any snow boots that fit Kendal so I didn't let her go outside with Kelsey at first. That was a mistake!! Kendal sat in front of the window watching big sis outside and just whimpered. She tried telling me all about it, but I just heard "baa baa maa ba bu bu ba buu maa maa." Which I am sure meant "Da@# it mom, let me out too!" So I did, with no snow boots. She was totally happy.
This is the cutest thing. Kelsey asked me for a carrot and 2 buttons. Doesn't her little (18") snowman look like a snow chicken? She made it all by herself!


This picture is with mom being a Clydesdale. "Go Mom go, run faster Mom!"


Now Kelsey's turn as a work horse and Kendal's turn to be dead weight.

Hey girl what size of foot is Kendal? I'm sure I have boots that would fit her! That snowman is really cute. Those mean school kids knocked ours down. So watch out for yours!

Heather, thanks but I have had an outpouring of snow boot generostiy. Let me see if these ones I was given today fit. I think they will.

Looks like fun. When my girls woke up and saw snow, they wanted to know if it was Christmas! That single comment hit me like a ton of bricks. I was trying to push that date out of my mind for another month!!!!

Rachel said...

Let not talk about Christmas!! I have a feeling it is going to be one of those years that I can't bring myself to buy or make any presents until Dec 1st. Then I will be insane the entire month!

Rach-
I am not the shopper that I used to be! I was going to call you last week and talk to you about it. I can not for the life of me justify spending money on myself right now. I really need/want a new bra--but I can't make myself go buy it. What is my problem?

Rachel said...

Motherhood is the problem, you put yourself on the backburner, that is just how it is!
