So last week Amber & I went to the Quilt Show, a yearly outing. As always, I come away from it inspired & motivated to do more craft projects. So on Friday, Zach & I made this quilt top together. Ok, so it isn't very intricate or complicated, but I was able to the whole thing, start to finish, during one of Chloe's naps. And now I feel proud of myself. I just wish my mom & sisters were close by to join in the fun with me.


Another Halloween has come & gone (thank goodness). This year Hailey dressed as a witch, a nice witch, & Zach was a skeleton. And I guess I might be a bad mother, because Chloe had no cute costume. Oh well. We went up to our Church for some Trunk or Treating. Hailey was worn out afterward, but Zach wasn't done yet, so Shad took him out in the neighborhood for a little while. We put their candy bags away, & they've hardly even asked for them. Good for them because they haven't eaten a ton of candy--bad for Shad & I because we eat it for them!

Happy Birthday Zach

Zach turned four years old last week. We can't believe how big he is getting! We celebrated with extended family the night before, but on the big day, we had a party with all of his friends here at our home. It was a dinosaur party & we had a great time. When Shad came home from work, we headed out for a surprise visit to Chuck E. Cheese for some pizza & games. And as if that wasn't enough, we topped the night off with a family party & some more presents. He was one excited boy!
