Kid Nation.

Ok I don't watch a lot of Television, but last night I watched this.


It was probably the most interesting thing I've seen lately. Honestly I don't want to miss a single episode. These poor kids, they are doing something so crazy! Oh and by the way what kind of parent would let their 8 year old leave home for forty days?

Look what my two little hands did!

I turned this...

Into this!!


This was one of my first projects that I have ever sewed, and I would like to say that it was so much fun!! I can't wait to get on with my next project. Check it out, it's another pattern that my friend Camille designed, she's so creative and talented. Not to mention an excellent teacher!

Wow What a Slacker!

I thought I was doing well keeping this thing updated but I've become lazy the past week or so. Mostly Matt and I are trying to fit in activities that we should have been doing all along. Jonas is movin' right along as well, he is trying so hard to crawl that I actually feel bad for him when he's laying on his belly and trying to get places, but he just can't seem to figure it out. One day though it's gonna click and I'm going to be chasing him all over the place. Here's some pics of the last few days.
Jonas havin fun with Grandpa!

Havin fun with Grandma! It kinda looks like he's crying , but Promise he was having fun!
He sleeps so funny now. Or he was crawling in his sleep.

Jonas at Matt's Company swim party!
Hmmm now what should I Order... All that swimming made me hungry!
Jonas is trying hard, like I said. He's starting to get the hang of it!

This is whats going on!

Mostly we've just been hanging out the past few days but here are some pictures to give you an idea!
We've been spending a lot of time with Jarom and Camille the past couple of weeks, Jonas has grown accustomed to sleeping on their bed while we hang out and play games, watch the Simpsons, or while Camille allows me glimpses into her amazing quilting skills! Camille took this shot of him just before he went to sleep.

On Saturday Matt and Jonas and I went to Red Rock with G & G Brandley. I tried to get a shot of Jonas in front of this neat tree but he was so intrigued by the rocks that he wouldn't look up for anything. I really like this shot of him though.
Matt got this shot of him right before he was about to get some lunch, wow what a grin.
Another evening with the Roskelleys, We hit Olive Garden, and Camille helped me start my Primary quilt! Jonas on the other hand was getting dragged so many places that he really didn't get a good nap, we had to settle for one of these cuddle naps while we waited for our food.
I learned to cut my fabric , and I cut out all my Primary Quilt squares in record time... (Well Camille said it was fast but I bet if we raced she'd kick my butt!) And after my squares, I started cutting the strips for my new table runner. These are them so far but I'm definitely going to post better pics of my fabric later. Now I'm just waiting ever so patiently to get my own mats and cutting wheel thingy and be able to do this while Jonas is sleeping. Unfortunately I wont have Camille around in Idaho to give me tips and secrets, so I'm trying to learn all I can now. I really wish I would have taken advantage of her company sooner. As she said a number of times just this weekend, "we could have been doing this all along!" Anyway, one thing I can say is how good it feels to have a project, not to mention Matt is thrilled by it also. (Maybe now I'll leave him alone!)
