Art From the Heart

Last evening the kid's school hosted "Art From the Heart" where all the students got to show off a selection of various art projects from the year. Sarah's selection included a clay mask and a seascape. Rachael's selections were a mask made from a mold of her face and a Picasso-style chalk. In addition, Rachael got to perform on her clarinet for 5 minutes and she included a selection of several songs. She was very nervous but she did really well. It was very noisy and there were little kids running back and forth in front of her, but Rachy held it together.

St. Patrick's Day Fun

Well yesterday was St. Patty's day and I had some fun with the girls. On the evening before, they were in the backyard and they set up a "trap" for the Lepruchan using a pot and some clover. Well in the evening I used my cricut and made one with a pot of gold and clover. Then I also made two additional clover leaves and left them by their beds. In the morning, they ran out and found the Lepruchan which Mark had placed near the trap. It was very cute. Sarah was astonished, Rachael obviously knew....

Our New Baby!!!!

I haven't been able to post anything in awhile because frankly nothing has been new. I'm working continuously on the Marie Antionette quilt and getting closer to being finished every day. However, Mark and I decided that we needed to stimulate the economy so with the impending upping of our sales tax we decided now would be a good idea to purchase a new car. We purchased the Ford Flex. I was torn between it and the Chevy Traverese but with GM in such trouble these days, I wanted to be sure I would be able to have my car serviced should GM go out of business. This car has everything I asked for including seating for 7, fold down rear seats, sun roof and moon roofs along the entire interior, leather seating, Sirus satellite radio. It really is a beautiful car. Originally I wanted a navy blue, but they didn't have the configuration on the lot and I figured they would make me a good deal if I took one off their hands. We traded in the Expedition and here it is:
