It has been a good week so far. A long week, too.
Our Jeep was in the shop for a few days, leaving the kids and I vehicle-less. That is a little hard when you live in the middle of nowhere. Not like you can walk to the library, you know? But it has been good. I've gotten quite a few things checked off my to-do list.
I finished up my Habitat quilt top the other day. I love it. The fabrics are so unique, and I love them in the traditional bowtie pattern. I am shopping for some quilt backing now. I would like to buy some yardage for it, which I generally don't do. But I think it would look wonderful. I'm not sure what I want, but I'm learning towards the dots that are to the left of my feet in the top photo. If you've noticed any good Habitat sales, let me know!
I got this big ole box in the mail today from Walmart. It contains 600+ family photos that I finally had printed out. I used to be in the habit of printing pictures once a month, but I got completely behind since we had Finley 9 months ago. I ordered some pictures from her first two weeks, and that is all since last July! So now I have 8.5 months worth of pictures to go through. I don't scrapbook, but I do dillegently sort and store pictures in albums. We have four albums going at all times: a family one, and then one for each kids. All the pictures go in the family one, and then I print out duplicates of the special ones for the kids' albums. I always buy the photo albums that have journalling lines so that I can keep track of dates and ages.
And the last little bit from this week. I just have to share with you this picture above. This is our family and my husband's two employees, and we had it taken for our local newspaper. Steve won the "Best Chiropractor in Town" for the 6th year in a row, and I am so so proud of him. He loves what he does, and is really good at it. He is blessed with a profession that he loves. Hope it is okay to brag for a minute. :) This picture cracks me up though. Notice, none of the kids are smiling at all. Oh well, I think they look cute.
Hope you all are having a good week so far!
