CC is just a little spoiled, only a little...
He loves to swing and sleep!And I made these great bags from the link in my last post. I just have to get some buttons for them and then they will be complete! Love them, they are just too cute!
Last night Rich took me and the kids to dinner to my favorite restraunt here in our little town. Fiesta Jalapenos! They serve authentic Mexican and I love their food. Especially their queso and chips! I had Fiesta Quesidillas, which had steak, shrimp and chicken in them! Yummy and had leftovers for lunch today! I couldn't take a picture because Rich is all like no you are not doing that! He thinks its weird to take pictures of your food from your birthday dinner! I don't know why he would think that!
Tonight I am going to sew some more and then the final of the Cake Challenge is on the food network tonight! Can't wait for that and the Amazing Race!
Hope everyone had a beautiful, wonderful weekend!

This morning I attended a new church. I admit I have been lax in this area. Our old church had some issues and they sort of disinigrated. I found an ad for this one, The Connection Church, so I decided to give it a try. I really liked it and am taking the boys back next weekend. It is a younger church and very upbeat, and relaxed.
Now I am off to have some lunch, blog read and work on more of my SBS blocks! Hope everyone had a great weekend!

The Millau Viaduct is part of the new E11 expressway connectingParis and Barcelona and features the highest bridge piers ever Constructed. The tallest is 240 metres (787 feet) high; and theOverall height is an impressive 336 metres (1102 feet), making thisThe highest bridge in the world. It's taller than the Eiffel Tower. Interestingly, the Millau Viaduct is not straight. Why? It's because a straight road could induce a floating sensation as You drive across it. So, a slight curve remedies that feeling. The curve is 20km in range. Moreover, the road has a light Incline of 3% to improve the visibility and reassure the driver. An amazing engineering feat!
I would have to close my eyes!!!
I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend. We did. We didn't do too much, which was nice. We have something every night again this week so we will be busy!
Saturday we just hung around, Rich went to ride, the boys and I stayed home. Sunday the boys went to their mom's in the morning for Easter and then we went to my parents.
Here are some pictures:

Hopefully this afternoon I can get started on another project. I have several that I would also like to finish, but I do have to get some more batting. Which would require a trip to town, which I will not do unless I have several stops to make.
I have decided though that I am going to make several bags to take to the grocery store so I don't have those stupid plastic ones! I hate those! I think I have about 100 in my pantry...I don't need more!
I know this wasn't a very exciting post, and I apoligize. Its just been busy and I have been playing rummy for three days. Sorry! Hopefully my next post will have something more exciting in it!

Are you currently reading more than one book? Nope I never read more than one
If so, how many books are you currently reading? See above
Is this normal for you? Yep, I can't stand to read more than one because then I get confused!
Where do you keep your current reads? Wherever I am, usually on the coffee table by the couch, the kitchen table or on my nightstand.

The game was great. I so wish I had remembered my camera. By the end of the game all the girls were in against 5 of the boys. The boys were only allowed to shoot from the 3 point line (harder!) and they were getting "fouled" right and left. One kid got fouled "just because". They were having a great time, the girls lost 40-20 or something like that and just had fun at the end.

My Juniors hanging out!
Today, the second day of Spring Break, it is snowing. We are supposed to get one to two inches, but it is looking like we might get more! I was so hoping the kids would be able to be outside! I think its going to be a LONG week!
And I have been working on a few things. These are the bindings ready to be put on to part of my PIF gifts.
I also made this quilt top. It's a disappearing 9-patch. It just needs to be basted, quilted and have the bindig put on. My mom was given a bunch of material so I took out all the dark purple you see in the quilt to use. There was also a piece of pink that will be big enough for the backing! Woo Hoo! Whole thing made from stash!
Today, working on PIF gifts, this quilt and whatever else I find. I also want to finish reading my current book. The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. This book is not as good as I thought it would be. I am just kinda like okay whatever. I only have about 50 more pages to go so I want to finish it, but it is definately NOT a favorite!
Tomorrow Rich and T are going to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame to see the Bruce Springsteen (Rich's favorite!) exhibit that they have. It just started and I am sure they will enjoy it. I went with him 7 years ago and its just not my thing, although I would like to see the Springsteen exhibit!
Now to catch up on my blog reading!
