Just What I've Been Doing

I finally finished the blanket for my Brother-in law and his wife's new (read almost 5 months old already!) baby, Charlotte. I went bright, b/c it appealed to me. The back side is a really soft red fabric, and I bound it with an orange satin blanket binding. It came out pretty, even though I didn't do so well on the machine embroidery around the edges. It was my first time machine quilting, so that's my excuse. K&D, if you are reading this, expect it in the mail soon!

We went to Chick-fil-A Friday morning for "Cow appreciation day", meaning free food if you dress like a cow "from head to toe". So we ALL did, and got over 40$ worth of the best chicken ever. I love Chick-fil-A! They have great food, great service, and they keep the Sabbath! We went early to beat the crowds, and Robert got some breakfast food (tater tots/hash browns are SOOOOO good!), and the rest of us got lunch stuff. They even gave us some free cinnamon clusters and the kids all got little stuffed cows and balloons. All b/c we are crazy enough to take our whole herd in public like this... Oh, the therapy my children will need...


Friday afternoon, we finally got to see my sister's new place and Horatio & EJ made themselves quite at home as you can see below. Angel & Oliver enjoyed playing wii for like 5 hours (I am NOT exagerrating, I swear!). We also played a bit of a board game and had some really good pizza while I did henna for my sister.



Here is my sister's tummy with henna. She's so cute, huh?


So there's a quick update. Maybe next time you'll get pics of the kids!

P.S. Mom, I did not forget your birthday! I hope it was nice, and I apologize for not calling. I'll make it up to you! I know, you can stay with us next time you're in Houston!

No, I freehand all of my henna. It's a fun talent that I am very grateful for.
