having too much fun be a good blogger lately! and who can blame me with these little fellas as nephews! God has most certainly blessed me with my family. My dear hubby and kids make everyday an adventure of some sort. But recently I have been extra blessed with my sweet nephews ( and new baby lillie of course). Almost exactly three years ago I had a hysterectomy at barely 30 years old. Let me tell you, it has been hard. We really thought we were done having children, but knowing there was never another glimmer was something altogether different. Somehow feeling like less of a woman at such a young age. But then came along David. He is the funniest little man. And ever so much like my brother. He is a free spirit and such a lover. Then came Charles. My sister's babe. Man, that kid can brighten my day in an instant. They both live close (one in town and the other in Kansas City) and I can get my baby fix on when I really need to. There is something about this time of year. Maybe its the hysterectomy. Maybe its my upcoming birthday. Maybe its the chaos that comes with May (dance recitals and graduations and weddings, oh my). Regardless, I am thankful for my sweet fellas to perk me up when I am a bit blue.

There are a few more over at flickr as well!!

mama's birthday

Seldomly does a quilt turn out better than I planned.  This one surprised me.  I ordered this fabric from sew mama sew awhile back, and wasn't quite sure what i was going to do with it.  Then I realized that my mother's birthday was coming  towards me at a fierce pace!  A strippy quilt was in order!  And here it is.  I adore the colors and the  size.  And I adore my mother.  Happy birthday mom.  These bright and cheery colors remind me of you!

rock chalk jayhawk

After an embarrassing amount of time without blogging I must safe a few brief words about my beloved jayhawks!  We went onto Lawrence today to see the victory parade!  A few pics for today, with more good posts to come this week!
Above,  the team and coaches!  About 100,000 were on hand for the parade!  Below, the best pizza in Lawrence!  So yummy.
And one long day for the little man.  The past month has been crazy busy, but should slow a bit now and I may even get my creative mind back.  Wish me luck!
