Oh, What a Weekend

Where do I begin? I got my new calling on Sunday! I'm the ward chorister and so I am front and center every Sunday leading the music. That means no bad hair days for me. After the rest hymn on Sunday The Boy threw a fit and so I took him out, not realizing how close to the hour we were. So, I'm about to take him to bathroom after I got him settled down and Will comes running out, "You have to go lead the music. He's wrapping up his talk!" So I go sprinting in just in time to walk up and lead the closing hymn. Phew! I'll have to be more mindful of time during sacrament meeting. I do have to say that it was so nice to sit and really be able to contemplate during the administration of the sacrament. That hasn't happened in a LONG time! I'm sure Will was experiencing the opposite:)

I have been a bow making fool this weekend. On Saturday morning a friend from my old ward followed me to Westminster and I dropped the kids off to Aunt H for a little bit. Then I hopped in her car and we made the pilgrimage to Fabric Barn in Long Beach for some ribbon shopping. I picked up quite a bit for future projects and to sell/share with others that said they didn't want to drive to LB, but wanted ribbon.
After the pilgrimage, my friend dropped me off and headed home. I stayed in W-town and helped Aunt H start the process of cleaning in preparation for my inlaws to get home THIS WEEK! I scrubbed the bathroom to death, got some vacuuming done (before it went kaput on me), and scrubbed the kitchen sink. My SIL scrubbed the kitchen counters and stove top. I'm going back on Tuesday to do the finishing touches. I'm so freaking excited! They are probably out of Texas now and get closer by the minute.

Is DST killing you? It's killing me. On Sunday Will wakes me up and asks if I need to shower. I look at the clock and see 6:40 and say, "Yeah, in a little bit." He says, "That clock is wrong. It's 7:40." AHHHHHHHHHHHH! I jump up and start running about because there is no being late for sacrament with my new calling. I was an ornery cuss trying to get us all out the door and the poor Boy got the brunt of it. I will be better prepared next week so there doesn't have to be as much yelling and tears. LOL

Here are som pictures of the bows I've made. Sorry they are blurry. I can't get the flash/focus right and I got tired of trying. Anyone want to buy me a Nikon DSLR for my 30th birthday coming up???? Anyone?? LOL

This is how I found The Girl this morning. She had started being able to wiggle her arms out of her swaddling, so I started using these Sleep Sack Swaddle things my friend had handed down to me. They were perfect and she couldn't get her hands out. However, last night she worked her little arms out. She must have not made much noise doing it, because I didn't hear anything last night.I have to tell you that there is a HUGE giveaway going on at this website:
So hop on over and get yourself entered!

Serious Man was the one who would always wiggle out of any swaddling we did. He just had to have his hands by his face. Congrats on the new calling.
