Look what came!

I'm in the middle of spring cleaning Emma's room and that's an all day job in itself.  That kid is a packrat!  I don't know where she gets it from (said sarcastically, as I would let my sewing room get piled ceiling high if no one ever came in there but me!)  She's decided she's too old for most (leaving about 5) of the books on her bookshelf, but she's not too old to give away her baby dolls and stuffed animals.  So, while I usually make them keep their own rooms cleaned up, once in awhile I go in and "help" by getting rid of what I know they don't even remember they have or don't need anymore.  And once it's gone, it's gone, so there's no arguing about it!

But I had to stop and post when I opened this!  It's my swap blocks from the Mod Mosaic Swap I did last month!  I was so thrilled to see all of the different blocks I received and am already laying them out in my head as I clean!  Tomorrow is my "Kelli" day when the kids go home with Grandma after school, so I'm planning on sewing up that dress for me and playing with my new quilt blocks.  I have 12 altogether.  I had originally planned on using 20...so now I have to decide if I want to make the other 8 or do I want to use bigger sashing strips!  ;)

  I'll spread them all out tomorrow so you can see what I've got.  I don't know how Kari (the swap coordinator) knew how much I loved bright and cheery colors, but she must have, because they're all that way.  Chris might not love it when he sees how much pink and turquoise there is!  ;)

  Oh, and for the family...I spent the morning in Oren's classroom helping him make his Easter bunny.  He made the ears purple because Emma did when she was in pre-k, but the rest is all Oren!  Sorry for the fuzzy picture, it's from my phone, but how funny is this??  He named it Rivers, not sure why...  And he got up at 6 this morning so he could have breakfast with Daddy, so that's why he has big bags under his eyes.  Daddy was headed out the door, so he had to have breakfast with Momma instead!  LOVE HIM!!!
