Trying it out!

I used my scraps for this one. I wanted to try and see if I could make this pattern. For a first shot, I think it turned out great!
I wanna make a whole quilt of these but it will take a long time!!
It took me about 2 hours to do this one.

Chris' elk skin

We skinned Chris' elk before we took it to the butcher's. And when I say we, it was mostly Chris but I did touch and help a few times.
This is the underside of her backbone. No one I have talked to knows anything about the stripes. If you know anything, please share!!
It looks like a zebra.
Chris shot this elk on the last day, at sunset of his elk tag. He was pretty lucky to get her.

This is what was on my cutting board this morning.
Mack, the truck, and his friends in the back.
I love being a mom to boys.
(Please note that the sun isn't even all the way up yet. Bee has taken to waking up at 7:early AM. YUCK!!)

Auntie Kassie

Auntie Kassie came to visit in the beginning of September!! It was fun having her here. I believe this was driving home from the White Sands in Nicci's car.

Nicci's quilt

So Nicci is living with us. One day we noticed that her quilt was starting to come apart in some parts. This was my first quilt I ever made without my mom.
So I stippled all over it to make it strong and hopefully stay together better.
Bee wanted his picture taken

Bee's kisses

Bee has been a pill lately. I guess it comes with the age. Ugh.


He is still a sweetheart. At least once a day, Bee will say, "Mommy hug."
And comes running to give me a hug.

There are times when he screams Mommy hug!!!!!! because he knows he is going to get into trouble. He thinks a hug will make it better. (It only works sometimes!)

Every day for nap, I put him to bed. I read him a book and then give him a hug. Then he kisses my cheek.

It's seriously so cute!!!

It's worth all the fighting we do during the day and the jelly slobbered cheek for that little kiss. Bee is still so stinking cute.

Daddy and boys

We went and got fish this weekend. I love the boy bonding time. Bee can help with almost everything with the fish so it's fun to watch the boys.
