A better day (kinda)

So the cancer scare is over. My grandma, who lives in an apartment attached to my house found a lump but it is benign. THANK heavens. The ward party is over. The baby is better. I am feeling a bit more sane today. Thanks for the love Lola, and Bonnie. I will wish you a happy last weekend of shopping today and begin cyber giving tomorrow again!!!! On a terrible note. My cousin lost her husband last night in a car accident. She has 5 small children. Keep her in your prayers.

Give, Give, Give!!!

I am about to confess something about myself. Very few people know this about me. Are you ready..........

Are you sure..........

Are you really sure...........

I love................


Its true

I have to confess. I love them all. Short socks, long socks, white ones and black ones. I don not however love nylons. Only socks. I think everyone should have some fun kind of socks. I was once in a blog sock exchange done by The Smiling Infidel. It was one of the funnest things ever. If you look at my profile picture you might have a clue as to my sock issue. I do not own a lot of crazy socks. Most of them are crazy, but there are not an over abundance of socks. I leave that to the shoes. So todays Cyber gift are some fun socks. I hope the picture is okay. These have cute little birdies all over them. I might have to save up and get some. The one thing about socks is no one ever sees them, so if you are feeling wild and crazy you can bring it out in your socks. I wore my flame ones to church on Sunday, under my knee high black boots. It was a rush.

Another Gift

So today it snowed a whole bunch. I don't know maybe 8 or 10 inches. It makes me want to eat soup. A while back I had some soup that was fabulous. It was from a resturaunt in Alpine called The Blue Lemon. I haven't been there, but I have only heard wonderful things about it. The soup I loved was Tomato Bisque, I am not sure if that is it in this picture or not, but this is from their website. So if you are cold like me then here is a bowl of soup to warm you up!!

On another note! I just want to know about these word verification things. You know, when you go to someones blog and you leave a comment and you have to type in your word for verification. Well, today I was leaving a comment and went down and my verification word was buger, Yes, buger. I had a really good laugh. In fact, I have really been enjoying those little words lately. They really used to bug me. I just hated typing them in. But, if they are going to be fun then I will be happy to type them in. I hope everyone that leaves a comment today gets a really good verification word!!

Gift #3

So todays gift is not a fun gift! I am really really sorry for that. This morning as I was wandering around, well it was more like running around (in my new cyber nikes of coarse), doing my usual morning duties. I noticed something not so nice. I happened to glance in my front room. This is my nice room. The room that is always clean, the one with the nice clean couch, and the piano. Well, one of those dogs had puked on my nice couch. RUDE, RUDE, RUDE!!!! So lucky for me I have this handy little tool. So I pulled out my Little Green Super Hero Machine. This thing is the very best thing ever. I want every one to have one. It is perfect for the dog puke on the couch, or the kid puke on the couch, or the floor, or any other spill that frequently happens at my house. The best thing is that you can just leave the cleaner in it for next time. So happy Little Green to you all today!!!

Gift #2

Today was a crazy day!!! Man am I glad it is over. We blessed our baby Ava today. I was up till 1:30 last night cleaning and cooking. It was a wonderful event. All that running around reminded me of my favorite running around shoes. I really like Nike shoes. All of them. Never met a Nike I didn't like. I thought these ones looked fun. Maybe Santa will bring them to me to add to my collection!! But, if not Happy Cyber Nike to you!

So my Internet has not been working. Bummer. But, it is fixed. I wanted to start this at the beginning of December but it didn't work out that way. I love Christmas. Yes, I love Christmas. The reason I love it is because I love to give things to people. If you came to my house and you loved something that was mine I would just give it to you. That is how much I love to give. I love the feeling you get when you give things. Well, this year I am poor. Yes, very poor. But, I love all you bloggers and you give to me every day. Sooooo, I have decided to Cyber Give. Every day from now until Christmas I am going to Cyber give you a gift on my blog. I want you to share your gifts and comment please. Every day I will take the comments and save them and at the end of the month (at random) there will be some real gifts to be had. So if you comment every day then you can have that many chances for a real gift. Mind you I have been to International Quilt Market a few times and have accumulated a few too many Fat Quarter Bundles and such things. I also have some non-quilter gifts too. Sooo share the wealth and advertise if you want to.

Todays gift is a wonderful thing that my friend Shan gave me once for my Birthday. These are the most wonderful socks I have ever owned. I do not know what I would do without them. They really do work. I can rub a little lotion on my feet at night, put on these socks and in the morning TAH DAH!!! Its like I have new feet. So todays Cyber Gift is Bath and Body Works Shea Socks

Veterans Day

Remember this cute boy! He is hilarious! I mean he says the most off the wall things. He recently had an IQ test at school. The school psychologist was amazed. IQ test are made up of several different parts. He was normal in all parts except for the section on Perceptual Reasoning. In this section he scored in the Superior rating. Now this did not suprise me in the least. He has always been very good at reasoning out of things. Not in normal ways either. His teacher told me that he can answer a math problem correctly, but that when you ask him how he got his answer his reply would be "I dont know but don't you worry the answer is right" and it always is. Well anyway, yesterday he went outside before school, came right back in and declared to me that the kids did not have school today because there was a flag in our yard.(The boy scouts put them there on National Holidays) He also told me that it was Vetratarians day! Well, I was amazed I had no idea we had a holiday for Vetranarians who were in the war and didn't eat meat!
Later on that day, he had to call my dad and see if grandpa would help him out at the pinewood derby. He asked him, and my dad said yes. Then Reese said " oh and grandpa one more thing. You know that truck with the camper on it that you have for sale. I was thinking maybe you could save it for me. Then in a few years when I can drive I could have it." I have no idea what my dad said but I almost bust out laughing. What nine year old is worried about what to drive. And would want to drive a 1970 something truck with a camper on the back. Only my Reese.
On another note, this morning my dog Diego came scampering in the Kitchen with something around him. I am always telling my daughter Kenadee to pick up her hair accesories. Well, I guess Diego has taken it upon himself to help her out. Yes, folks that is a headband wrapped around his middle. I have no idea how he managed that but Kenadee should be very happy with him!!

Fall Fabric Clean up

So I decided that my sewing room needed a little pick me up. I don't know what got into me. Maybe it was the giant piles everywhere. Who knows. So I attacked the cupboard. I decided that maybe I could get rid of some fabric. If you are a hoarder you may not want to look.

Before and After

So you see I got rid of a lot of fabric and hauled it right down to the humanitarian person in my ward. Man did I have some ugly fabric. I should have took some pics, but I was in a hurry to get rid of it. My cupboard looks so nice now and there is room for more fabric!!

On with Life

In my little world sometimes life changes. I am sure everyones does this. It seems like I am always looking forward to the next thing in line. For Example: I just had a baby. It seems like I waited for ever for her to get here. Then she got here and I had a break from regular life for a few weeks. Well, the break is over. Real life has started again. It is a little bit difficult finding my groove again. I hate that part. I like my groove and I don't like to figure out all the ins and outs of getting my kids where they need to go, when to go to work, and everything else that comes with being a mom. Hopefully, I will figure out all of this soon. My messy house is driving me nuts!

Here she is!!!
Ava Angela Limb
We are so excited and she is darling. She is a really good baby too. Especially considering that I have the flu. They even think it may be the swine flu. How sucky is that.
Everything went really well with her. Except for that 15 minutes when my epidural decided not to work on one side!
My other children love her. The first thing out of Coopers mouth is always where's Ava. Then he goes and checks on her. I thought he would not be happy about her, but he sure is. Hopefully I will be able to get a pic of her cute dimples soon.

Thanks to all the people that have helped so far!! I have really needed it this time.

Hooray for school!!

My oldest daughter went to Jr. High today. I can't believe she is old enough for that. Or maybe I don't want to believe that I am old enough for that. I cannot wait for Thursday when they are all in school. Its coming fast. Thank goodness. I love the structure it creates. I think my kids are wanting a schedule also. All of my kids will be gone, for at least part of the week anyway. Maybe I will have time to blog then. At least until our little #5 gets here at the first part of October.

You should never have to go be a soccer mom in this crappy weather. You should especially not have to coach soccer in this crappy weather. I just needed to complain to someone thought you all could use a little whine with your dinner.

So today I had to run to 2 different beauty supply stores. These stores are not for children. There are signs even. So in my desperation to keep my three monkeys happy I stopped by the Dairy Queen. I know what you are thinking. (She is Crazy) You are right. As the nice Dairy Queen lady was handing me out 3 of the giantist Small vanilla cones I had ever seen. I said "Oh my gosh I am nuts" the Dairy Queen lady must have thought so to as she handed me a giant stack of napkins. As I handed Monkey #3 his ice cream he totally freaked out. It was just too big for him. WHAT! An ice cream cone that is to big. Are you kidding me! I had to have the lady scoop half of it off before he would accept it. Sometimes I wonder what the heck is up with those kids.
So as I am driving I am trying really hard to not look into the back seat. I just knew what was going to happen. But after a few minutes I couldn't help it, I just had to look.
So who can tell me WHY oh WHY little children cannot eat their ice cream cone in a symmetrical way. Why oh Why do they only eat one side? This is one of those questions we mothers ask and I don't think we will ever know the answer.
Anyway the only one doing that was little monkey #3 and once I pointed out that he needed to eat the other side too he was fine. I am a proud mother to tell you that I only had a few little drops of ice cream in my car and Monkey #1 cleaned them right up. It was a historic day in the history of Ice Cream Eating.

For those of you that don't know. I have to darling little shih-tzu dogs. Oscar and Jersey. Well on Saturday night Jersey had her first batch of puppies!!!! Of coarse she had to start having them at about 11:30 p.m. So I stayed up all night with her. The last one came about 4:30 a.m. They are so cute!! 3 boys and 1 girl.

Now hopefully in about 2 months we can sell them. All though my kids are already trying to persuade me to keep them!

The many faces of Monkey #3

So my youngest little monkey is spoiled rotten. No really, spoiled rotten. I know I shouldn't have done it but now it is too late. Mind you he is almost 4 and he is home with me all day by himself, so he gets to do pretty much whatever he wants all day. But just look at him. He is so cute.

Don't get me wrong I think he is adorable. One day I found him like this.......
I guess he couldn't find a blanket so he climbed under my bed. The brown is my bedskirt and the teal is the duvet. It was so funny.

It is not so funny though when he changes his attitude at the blink of an eye!!!!

This happens more often than i would care to admit!!!

The things you can do with a Cracker!

Have you ever wondered what you could do with a cracker? I was thinking about saltines today as I was watching monkey #3 pack his package around the house with him. Its funny to me that I can buy all the different kinds of crackers in the world and my kids always go for the plain old saltine. I remembered that when I was a little girl I would eat these with butter on them. It was just so good. So next thing I know out comes the butter and guess what it is as good as I remember. Of course I am of the opinion anything is probably good as long as it has butter on it. But I was just wondering what else people like to eat on these crackers? That is if anyone ever checks my blog anymore since I haven't posted for what 2 months.
