As usual I was super duper busy!
Friday night THE hunter was going to go hunting...but then changed his mind. Then MY Hunter was going to go to sleep.....but then changed his mind....all night :(
Satuday my Mom wanted to go to Bass Pro to grab some Christmas gifts for my Dad while he was out hunting, so we braved the crowds and went shopping. Soooooo stupid! Bass Pro was PACKED!!!! We tried to have MY Hunter take his (now) annual Santa picture at Bass Pro, but we would had to wait for almost 2 hours for Santa. Now I know ya'll don't exactly know my babycakes personally, but I'm sure you can imagine trying to entertain a 14-month-old for 2 hours when he's hungry and tired. I'd rather go head to head with a lion. Truely. No fun for all concerned. So we grabbed what we needed and skeddadled back home.
MY Hunter and I spent the night at my parents house and THE hunter returned Sunday morning with a change of clothes so that he could go to the lake house with my dad to crawl under the house and fix the duct work or the heating or whatever is wrong with the lake house. Either way someone was crawling under the house. One. Two. Three....NOT IT!!!!!! I was so not volunteering for that job! For whatever reason, there is no heat so the boys figured out that there was something torn up under the house. The consensus was that it was was Phillip and Phyllis, the groundhogs (or ground pigs as we like to call them) that were under the house tearing stuff up. lol, poor THE hunter. He crawled under the house to quickly find it was not Phillip nor Phyllis......it was a HUGE rat! HUGE!!!!! Yuck! I shudder just thinking about it. Ew.
On a less icky note: my Mom and I stayed up until 1am on Sunday working on my Secret Santa quilt! What make it fabulously awesome: all the Christmas movies we watched as we sewed! Christmas in Connecticut, The Bishop's Wife and then White Christmas!!!!
Of course I forgot to take pictures for ya'll, but I'll post my Santa's soon!
Have a happy day!

Yes, I know...I need to post pictures of my Christmas log cabin quilt! It's finally got the binding on, so I'll post a pic of it soon!
They didn't have as much fabric to choose from than say a bigger store in a bigger town like Tulsa, but the fabric they did have was 1) cheaper and 2) was a lot better fabric to choose from! I even found some Elm Creek Quilt fabric! Have you read those books yet? Well....you should! Anyways, we got all our fabric for the Dragonfly quilt and we had a great time. We might just go back this weekend too!
Have a great ice cream-filled day!

Lovin the fall one!
This was the raffle quilt (that I really really wanted...but didn't win)!
It was so colorful and lovely!
So, really, a good time was had by all! After the quilt show, we took MY Hunter to Bass Pro in Broken Arrow to have his picture taken. Look how stinkin cute he is!

So I'm celebrating......... with cake!
Just wanted to share the news! All thanks should be directed to my
Workout Nazi, Krystal. It's her fault! But I thank her regardless, even if she brings me cake to celebrate (she'll make sure and sweat it out of me later)!

Remember the question I posed recently about making a baby blanket for my husband's cousin in the Pure or the Lollipop? Well, everyone picked Lollipop making it pretty unanimous, so I bought 2 charm packs, sewed them into 9 patches and then proceeded to cut them all up to make a disappearing 9 patch out of them.....not lovin' it. Not to mention the hus-beast doesn't think that his country cousin will like the Lollipop....."They're more John Deere sorta people, hunny." Great. Time to regroup.
Went to Hobby Lobby Friday and bought the most child friendly John Deere looking fabric I could find and some navy solid for the backing. Sewed the stinkin' thing Friday night, finished the blanket stitch on the yellow binding last night, and need to make a label with a tractor on it to slap on the back by Friday when we wrap it up and take it to his cousin's house for her to open at the baby shower on Saturday. I can't go because I'm going to a craft festival in Rogers, Arkansas with a friend that was planned months ago.
News on the babysitter front: I (thankfully) found one for Poo Poo Friday evening. She was the last one on the list to interview, so it's great that she passed the Poo Poo test :) She was the only one we interviewed who actually got down on the floor and played with him...or even acknowledged him for that matter! It's getting harder and harder to leave him in the morning and go to work though. Until I can stay home with him, at least he's with a great caregiver!
With all this hullabaloo goin' on, I haven't even had a change to work on my Christmas log cabin! I've decided that I am anti-UFO. I am not a half-finish, then-work-on-something-else kinda girl. Chalk it up to me being anal, I'm sure! Maybe I can work on the loggious cabinous on Sunday! I NEED this quilt to be finished! It bothers me! :)
