2nd part of my 2 part post....I participated in a mini quilt swap. OH MY am I a lucky girl!!! Yesterday afternoon but what did I see in my mail box? A package! And from Switzerland!!! YAHOO! I knew it had to be something special and it is...I opened ok, ripped it open and gasped, it is lovely!!! It is AQUA my FAV color right now!! It is just so neat, I love the bird in the center, I love the wonkiness of the sqaure, I love the polka dots, I love the aqua, did I say that already? My swap partner is Sandra, and her blog is lovely...my daughter loves to listen to the music on her blog, I do too! My partner (the gal that I made a mini quilt for) is Nicole in California....like a total dork I forgot to take a picture of the mini quilt that I sent her...but I made an aqua/red log cabin sqaure for her...think I might need her to take a picture of it and send it to me...can't belived I forgot to do that! This mini quilt swap has been so fun, can't wait to do it again!

My husband and I were talking the other day, E. will be 6 in August so we have been changing diaper(s) for almost 6 years! Now I know there are other people out there that have changed diapers for a lot longer than that (how about the Dugger family!?) NO WAY! J. potty trained himself at the end of last summer for going tinkle and he has been sleeping w/o a diaper for almost 6 months. We first used going to Chuck E. Cheese as a reward for going #2 in the potty, that took a few weeks for him to finally want it that bad that he went in the potty, next day....he wanted a diaper...I gave him a diaper, he went #2 then I had the brilliant idea to get rid of the diapers (never said I was a quick learner!) The next day J. comes up to me, "diaper mamma" I said, "there are no more diapers," took him over to the diaper holder in his closet and NO diapers (cue the dramatic music) ummmm well.....he did not poop for almost 3 days! BUT when he did, it was in the training potty!!
Yesterday and this morning, came right up to me...."mamma got to go poop" GREAT!!! I had to take a picture of him though...1st picture he was not happy with me getting a shot of him on the pot....2nd picture I asked him to make his eyes real big, so that is why he has the funny face, no more diapers, yahoo!!! (cue the music of angels singing!)
Anyone notice in the 2nd picture I did some clean up? No plunger or laundry on top of the sink for the 2nd picture :)

I am done having babies, no more for me...but I love babies and I can't wait to get started on this little number. The thing I love about this...I have so much fabric and batting in my stash this will cost me NOTHING but the postage to mail it off but what do I love MOST about this? The thought of a little boy or girl having a blanket wrapped all around them, some comfort, some warmth from this momma that will probably never know them or see them...once a momma always a momma......

THEN a few weeks ago a few of my gang of gals and I were in this awesome store in Spokane that is going out of business and everything is 50% off....and what did I see? Yep several of these roosters and they were the smaller size so their price tag was smaller AND now 50% off!! I thought about it and thought about it and then went home and "talked it over/asked my husband" about it...found a few pics on flickr so I could show him an example (it is hard to describe to some one who has never seen one of these what one looks like) The only thing my husband said was "I don't care, as long as I don't have to move it to mow the lawn, string trim, etc." YAHOO!!! The next morning I put J. on the bus to pre-school then E. and I were off in my husbands pickup to pick up my big ol' rooster!!! I felt like a country girl bumping along the road home with my treasure in the back of the Chevy....yahoo! So now I have one of those "things" on my little list in my head that I always have wanted, yeah!! But of course do remember....the best things in life are not THINGS!!!

When I was a little girl I was not a pink or a purple girl it was yellow, my parents bought me a canopy bed when I was in the 1st grade with a yellow canopy and bedspread (a few years later my brothers and I broke the canopy bed by trying to hang off it, oh well)
I will be sending out emails this morning to the winners!
