Richard AKA Tank's Birthday Party

Richard had a Great day, G'ma came over and we played outside and ate way to much again.
He is crazy for John Deere Tractors so when I saw these Adorable cupcakes at the store I had to have them!
His very first bike/helmet Thomas the Train, Just like Sissies! We had a fun time showing him how to peddle all day long.

Now all 3 have their own bikes and are loving the sunshine, even if it's chilly out still! I'm being called outside again so Hope ya'll are having a Wonderful Saturday!

Easter Weekend

Easter weekend has gone by so fast, It's also Spring break here for Crystal so we are trying to keep busy. Sat. We had visitors over to take scrap metal that the previous owners had left, their truck got stuck in our muddy back yard and so we had to call a nice nieghbor and have pull him out with his tractor, this took all afternoon and the whole ordeal wasn't over till 6:00! We were tired after they left so we fixed easy Tacos and went to bed.

Easter Sunday was nice and sunny, still little chilly but nice, we were able to hunt for eggs outside. We had a nice ham dinner with my Sister and her family, my mom had a cold and so did DH mom so it was just Sis/family and us. We ate and watched "August Rush", "Enchanted", and "Mr. Woodcock" while the guys talked Computers.

Here are some cute pics of the kids hunting eggs next to the apple trees.

My surprise package and a Play

This is Crystal at her play last night, she did wonderful and only forgot some of the words. We are so proud of her!

I received a nice Package from a drawing that I entered sometime ago, it's a lovely package of fabric, needles, doileys and finished squares that I'm hoping to make into a small quilt. I had to quickly fold all of my laundry to lay it out on my bed, so excited and keep playing around with the patterns! ElectricDunce from MaryJane's Farmgirl Connection has outdid herself on her package!

I also joined Amy's new OH Farmgirl's Chapter. I'm excited about this! Since moving to this house and planning on a Gardening and canning fruit, I'm going to learn all I can. Please stop by MaryJane's Farmgirl Connection and say "HI"!

My Weekend finds

WOW, This is late but last Sat. we went to the first Craft Show of the season here in Bremen OH. It was filled with lots of Avon and Tupperware products but I did find this adorable Bunny that a nice Lady made out of her home, She even kissed the little bunny Goodbye! I love those Carrots, I need to remove that ribbon holding them together though.

I'm busy Spring cleaning and re-decorating somewhat. Will post pics later on as I have the time. We are off to a play at DD's school, She is singing tonight with her class and is scared.

My Rooster Wall Hanging

Here is another wall hanging, My Great Aunt Hazel made me this one many years ago, It has become my Fav. piece in all of my Rooster collection. In every house it has hung in the kitchen, She was a great lady who was ALWAYS busy stitchen/sewing, She gave each of my kids a quilt and I'll post pics of those later on.

So I found this site called'm now officially hooked! The items on there varies from day to day and always a nice surprise to find something that you'd love to have and display in your house, fab. old quilts! I here that Ebay is the same but I have never gotten anything from there, My DH has but not I...I wonder how come it has taken me so long to discover it, Prob. cuse the kids are getting out of the diaper phase and I have a few minutes to myself during the day to explore more online.

Well with DH out of town for Business, I have come to realize that I do appreciate his help carrying the water buckets back and forth to the barn every day, my back is aching tonight. We hope to be able to have water run into the barn by next winter but for now we have to use our mudroom's sink and fill buckets. It's hard work but I love it when Hoss nickers at me!

My Lovely Wall Hanging

Here is a Wall hanging that my Mom made for me Thanksgiving 2007, I have it hanging in my Kitchen. I think that it's adorable hanging from a twig and I love the saying "Thank God for the Gifts you were Given and Learn to Live Within Your Harvest".

So now all of this snow is melting and we are swimming in Mud! The kids/dogs don't want to go outside and my daily walks to go feed/check on Hoss is horrible, slippery and icky.

I'm spring cleaning and re-decorating and collecting lotsa books. I saw 2 Robins this morning and the cardinals are singing!

~Ohio Blizzard of 2008~

WOW, We have gotten prob. 12 to 15 inches of snow within the last 2 days and tonight it's blowing like crazy, the kids had a blast playing in it today but it was a crazy walk from my back door just to the barn. We are under a level 3 snow emergency (which means that we CAN NOT leave the house unless an emergency) and tomorrow Hubby leaves for a week to Atlanta GA for a training class and yes, he is driving...We have to watch the news tonight to see how long the Level 3 stays. I wanted to start a new stitchery but the kids wouldn't settle down today so I got to start a new book instead. All of my laundry is done and the house smells so good, chilli and chocolate cake...Tomorrow I hope to take it easy, a full week ahead with Hubby gone.

Closing Shop

I'm thinking about closing my shop inorder to focus on my Bookstore and leaving my Stitcheries as a Pure Fun Hobby so if there is anything that you'd like to purchase please do so within the next week.
I feel so Blessed with the response ppl are having with the bookstore, I have gotten more replies about donations of books this past week than I had thought I'd get. I have also received an invitation to attend a Chamber of Commerce meeting about Small Business's in the area. I'm looking forward to that but I am nervouse about meeting new ppl. I had better get over this fear fast HUH!!

A Warm Monday

Woke up this morning to Sunshine, temps in the 60s..We didn't need to wear a jacket at all today. Hubby stayed home and we worked in the barn, it was damp in there from the melting snow runoff. You know whoever thought of Stall Mats, I could kiss them..LOL..Hoss's stall was so dry and outside was a soupy mess. We had a nice relaxing weekend, my sis and her hubby watched the kids (first time ever) so that we could run and have ourselves a mini vaca. We stayed in a hotel, ate lotsa food and watched the movie "I am Legend"...Hubby really liked it but it wasn't for me, I have heard that it wasn't at all like the book. So then we came home to a messy house and happy kids and a frazzled Sis, Since she has lived out of state for so long she hasn't really been around my little guy much and boy He was pushing her buttons! I told her that we'd have to do this more often so that she can have practice when her 2nd baby is here! HAHAHAHAHAH Love ya Jenn!
So now my fingers are begging for a new stitchery and I've been so busy trying to collect books, I need something easy to do late at night. Do any of you out in Blogger Land now of an easy stitchery?
