On Saturday, we had Littlest’s birthday party. We were planning a campout in the back yard, but the weather was touch and go, so the boys slept inside instead. We still went outside for s’mores and scary stories (which is, in my opinion, the best part of a campout anyway), so the boys didn’t seem to mind. I can’t believe that my Littlest Guy turns 8 this week! Whaaaaa!
Saturday was also a big day because teacher assignments came in the mail. This is a major event in the life of a suburban mom. There were texts flying through the neighborhood of who got what teacher. We got the ones that we wanted so YAY!
My parents are currently visiting and will be with us for 10 days. It is nice to see them, but houseguests stress me out big time. Disruption to routines + people around all the time = frazzled me.
Last week, I took out my completed cross stitch projects with the intention of framing them (finally) in the frames that I’ve been collecting. I quickly realized that it was a bigger project than I wanted to take on, so off they went to the framing shop. Framing is so crazy expensive, even when you supply the frames! What a racket… but I cant wait to see the results!
How cute is this picture of Sammy?
He might just be the cutest dog in the world, especially when he snores with his eyes OPEN. He’s a little weirdo but we love him. I think that he looks like a puppy, but he is actually 12 years old! I wish that I knew his secrets for a youthful appearance.
This project is going OK.
I’ve mentally recovered from my fabric cutting snafu, but my thread is tangling A LOT on this one and it’s really annoying. Does anyone have any tips? It’s driving me crazy.
