Anyways, my request.......
Does anyone have a worm bin that I could come and get a scoop of your yummy compost from? The school just got thier bins in this week, so there's nothing exciting going on in them. I would care for your worms and get them back to you when the day is over.

Since this one came out so big, I thought I'd try it again and this time work with the smallest size 86/92. I didn't include seam allowances, thinking it would fit better. It's still big in the chest. and the length is almost too short. Don't ask about the fabric combo. she picked it out. and being 3.5, well I guess you can wear whatchya want to wear and it doesn't matter. Just not the combo I would have choosen, ya know.

in other news.....
E got word yesterday that he got off of work early for one thing and that he had today off. Luckily he has like 7 weeks of vacation time so it's paid.
Mad and I had already made plans to go to the indoor play park at C's school with our mama friend Kathy and her son D. Her other son I, goes to the school too but he's in kg. Anyways. I got a phone call from Allison asking if I wanted to come up and help build a chicken tractor. I called E to ask if he wanted to go help, he said sure. So instead of running to the 'Couv and trying to make it back to East Gresham in time to pick C up, I made a mama decision for him to leave school early. He didn't have all of his work done, so he needs to write down 10 nouns for Monday, but woohoo, we all get to go and the mama doesn't have to be rushed. (side note, on the way to school, C out of the blue asked if we could go visit M &M (Allison's two oldest) on his next day of no school. I would have been a bad mama if I went and not taken him.
So we ate lunch, E packed the car with tools, and we headed to the 'Couv. The kids had a blast! and no major fights! Not even between Mad and the third M. And the mamas got to talk cause E did all the work!!!!!
Allison did send us home with 19 eggs. I should take the post office box and peanuts back to her so she can hand out eggs to the next person. E was happy enough to just take eggs since this mama said she'd hug a tree tonight.

it's been a long time
Since brother was Ben10, sis had to be Gwen. Farbenmix Zoe pattern made with JA fleece.
Snow storm 08. Those are rose bushes sticking out on the left. and a half burried snow man in the yard.
Another shot of the coop. We had to put a tarp over the house portion of it because the snow would find it's way in under the hinged portion of the roof. Also glad that we put cardboard up in the "upper" windows. There was also a couple of heatlamps in there and an electric tape to keep the water from freezing.
C-man's snow cave. He thought of it after it snowed a ton, guess it was a place for him to sit. very awkwardly but hey, he had fun doing it.

Save a Sack
Save a Sack
Creative name? I need a name for the little sacks/bags that I'm making. I'm in the process of making 30 for Carson's school. For his birthday snack, he wants goldfish. And instead of sending plastic baggies or paper cups to put them in, I thought I'd make little sacks for them.
They aren't as detailed as the ones that I'll have at the craft fair in Vanc. There's no "handle" on the school ones. I'll get pics up as soon as they are done. like tonight. cause well they have to be done for tomorrow!
The great thing, they can be used for other things, like collecting treasures!
