I am rather embarrassed to admit this, but my Mom bought me a new sewing machine two Christmases ago and it is still in the box. There has been a lot going on during the past two years, but the main reason for me not getting it out has been space. Realistically I'm not going to be able to sit down from start to finish and get a project completed in one day and get my mess cleaned up before mom duties start back up.
Oh well I say, it's time. I have missed sewing and I'm ready to get back to it. Maybe my messes will also get Cody into the mood for the bigger house we have been discussing.
Goal number one is to make a couple of these guys for some very dear friends of ours. The only thing I'm waiting for is to see if I need to add a little girls detail or not. Project number two is to go fabric shopping for these.
Wish me luck!

It has been a rather eventful year to say the least, and I guess I should attempt to get caught up on a few blogs!
Before our first week of kindergarten was over we ended up in the Pediatric ICU with JB. Why do you ask? Here are a few pictures for documentation.
Cody informed me later that on the ambulance ride to town JB kept telling the EMT's "Don't take my blood," so as you can expect we had two failed attempts at an IV before getting to the hospital. After a hefty dose of pain medicine in the ER this is a very drugged JB in the Pedi-ICU. Not a picture any mother or father wants to see.
The puncture wound. Who would have thought such a small little hole could produce such a life changing event.
The damage. The marks are to make hourly measurements to record swelling changes. JB ended up having 4 doses of anti-venom before his swelling started to go down.
More loot from loving neighbors. This was to hide from the nurses and doctors!
Finally out of ICU and on the road to recovery! Once again, more loot from all of our loving family and friends!
JB & Taylor in the kids wing playroom the day we got to go home!
The culprit... Four foot long rattlesnake on the playground during PE.
