I can almost feel fall

August 21, 2008

Though the days are still reaching blood boiling temperatures of 108 degrees almost every day, I am starting to get the feeling fall is around the corner. The sun is shining in a different way. And most of all, I am getting the craft bug again. Last week I finished 2 bleach stencil shirts for Simon.

He loved the robot shirt so much that he didn't even want to wait for it to dry to wear it. And he has been asking to wear "robot shirt" almost every day since. If you can't see it very well, the bottom of the shirt says "Do the Robot"

I am so glad that Melesa and I learned how to do bleach stencilling. It is so easy and fun!

Most of my other projects have been for the baby (who is due in 3 1/2 weeks!) I made 2 nursing covers, a baby sling, a cover for my boppy pillow, a crocheted blanket and a quilt. The 2 blankets I finished last month. I also just completed an over-the-door organizer for Simon's room. I made it completely out of placemats I found on clearance.
In other news, we finally have our home to ourselves. We love having company but it sure is nice to have the house semi-quiet again. We do miss the occasional guitar hero wars.
Yep that's Jesse. He is the ultimate Guitar Hero!! We don't even stand a chance against the champ. He is off at EAC meeting girls and feeding his brain.

Marie has been out of the house for a while. She and Aimee will be moving into a house at the beginning of September. Until then, Marie is staying at her apartment until the month is over.

Not much else has happened the last month. We are still anticipating our baby coming soon. We got a few 3D ultrasound pics of the little guy at our last appointment. That was a pleasant surprise since normally they charge about $100 for the 3D ultrasounds and she gave them to us at no charge! Woo hoo! Look at those chubby cheeks.

Simon has been so much fun these days. He is getting pretty good at counting to 10. He also has been singing his favorite songs non-stop. Some of them I didn't know that he knew. He was singing "eat, eat, eat, apples, nanas" yesterday. What a smarty.
Jeremiah has been staying busy at work. They just made him the dispatcher for his office. He has held so many titles at this company he could probably run the whole thing on his own ;o). They love him over there and he works very hard for the company.
That's it for now. Hopefully the next post will have pics of our new baby.
