This is what Reece did the other day. Cracked me up. He insisted upon pulling the stroller in from the garage and sitting with this lamb and "watching" t.v. The funny thing is that he only sat for about 30 seconds at a time. He was so busy climbing in and out of the stroller that he didn't see much of the show. How can kids be so different? Avery would watch t.v. all day long and Reece barely notices it.

These sunflowers were in my last produce basket and I couldn't resist taking a picture when I saw the sunlight coming through the window.
What have I been doing?NOT the Laundry!

I took the Longaberger picnic basket my aunt gave me for my wedding and turned it into an embroidery/smocking organizer.

Here is the tablecloth that Meemaw gave me one year for Christmas and at the time I had no idea what to do with it. My mom showed me this summer and this is what I have finished.

I'm thinking I will get the tablecloth done in about 8 years.

The next pictures are the tote bags we made for MOPS. I am the creative arts person and had to come up with a new spin for an old idea. Hence, iron-on transfers and some embroidery stitches. If anyone else from MOPS wants the stitching done let me know.

On the back side I just put the kids handprints because there cannot be empty space! he he he!

Love all the crafting! Cannot believe how big Reece is getting!!!! What a boy! Hudson is the same way, he'll watch tv for a bit, then get up and do something, then watch tv a bit, then get up and play. Lily could watch it all day long if I let her! Boys are just so much more active!
