Knock, Knock...

...nobody's been home!  Well that is not true.  We have been home and very busy.  During the second week of December I finished sewing up some skirts for the girls first ballet recital, I started my first lap quilt, my mom came to visit, Logan was baptized.  Of course we got pictures of all these super cool events...then a glitch happened, Christmas Eve we knew we need to empty the memory card to make room for the festivities of Christmas day, food, gifts, family oh-my!  Oh, my it was when we put the card into the computer and all our pictures were gone.  Yes we have no pictures of Haylie and Hannah in their cute little ballet recital, including some short video clips.  We only took two pictures of of Logan and Jeremy all dressed in baptismal clothes.  GONE!  Jeremy and I took a twin and helped them in the classroom to build gingerbread houses, POOF!  My mom bought the kids some drawing stuff and was teaching them how to use it, cute pictures..NO MORE!  We had my mom take a family picture, you know the one we take every year at home with a timer...this year we went high class and got a good one, I think all eight of us looked good...now there is no proof!  It makes me sad, but fortunately not heart broken, well the baptism pictures I am pretty sad about, since it is irreplaceable.  Oh and the ones with my mom since we don't get to see her too often, it had been a year and a half. The rest I can get pictures that are pretty similar.

I did finish a quilt and I am impressed with my self.  As with any learning experience, I shoulda, coulda, woulda.  But none the less I am extremely pleased.  As soon as I get another opportunity I will take a picture.

For those of you who think my stories are something equal to "blah, blah, blah..."  Here is a cute photo to make up for my rambling.
This picture is adorable in color, but when I used it for the quilt I didn't download it from the camera, I just saved the edited version.  Still cute, but Color would have shown you a little more.  These kids are growing so much, personality wise, physically and mentally.  They all make me laugh at least once a day, sometimes make me cry, once a week.  And 100% of the time they make me feel like a super hero.  I am so fortunate, and don't take it for granted that I am this lucky!

BTW take a look at Lauren's angelic pose.  I'm just sayin'.

Happy New year and I hope to be catching up real soon!

So fun to catch up with your life! Reading your blog makes me feel like I'm not so far away. Super cute b&w pic of the kids! (And I love the "blah, blah, blah" comment too ;)). Good to "see" you again!
