Ok first of all...have any of you seen these guys? They are hilarious! I can't remember where I first saw this one but it was on someone's blog...then I saw this link today here...and it all came back. Hubby and I watched about 5 different ones - we were laughing so hard.
So today we officially started school. And it went great! Little Brother actually seemed to learn something(yeah!) and we got in some good reading. Baby girl threw a tantrum and had to be put to bed and actually took a long nap. I'm not kidding myself into thinking she'll do that everyday.
We have our big soccer opening day on Sat. and so I made a banner for little Brother's team since Daddy is the coach. They are the Blue Snakes and I just sewed it up really quick. I think they'll like it and figured they can decorate it with their names and hand-drawn snakes.
There was yet another baby shower this past weekend...yes, everyone I know is pregnant or has just had a baby. I made these little goodies for the little guy...
My mother-in-law comes on Wed. I am actually excited and am hoping she can teach me some yummy Costa Rican dishes as she is an excellent cook.
Bela's b-day is on Thursday so Tita (that's what we call her and also my mom too) is arriving just in time. My mom is going to take her out to lunch and a little shopping for her birthday (she has a little tradition that she does with all the kids) so Bela is excited. I am not sure what to get her and don't want to get more plastic junk that will just end up at the bottom of the toy box. She is really into crafting so I think I'll get her her own little supply of craft stuff and things she can make on her own.
I did get in some sewing this weekend and made some new cushions for the couches. I still have one more to go because on Sat. morning I was humming along with my Brother when it just totally freaked out and jammed, bending the needle radically. There was lots of muttered words under my breath as I worked the needle out and put in a new one. Imagine my surprise when it wouldn't sew...it won't catch the thread at all!! Of course Brother is closed on the weekends and so I took it to the repair shop only to have them tell me they wanted $119.00 to fix it...the machine only cost $180!!! So I did what any normal person would do...I bought this instead...I know, I'm crazy. And now I am crazy in love. It is the most amazing machine I have owned. Granted up til now I have only owned Brothers so not much of a comparison. I did not know what I had been missing. I still need to call Brother since I just bought that machine in July!!! Ok don't want to talk about it too much - it will make me upset and I will forget about my little beauty sitting in my sewing room now...sigh....
