Late night "work"

With Dylan being sick and staying up late I decided to work on sanding and polishing some buttons. I really got into it and actually got a lot done.

I sanded and polished till I couldn't anymore. Really I couldn't. The battery on the Dremel died on me :P But I'm sorta glad that it did. Its almost 1 a.m. and I could really use some sleep. Only problem... Dylan's STILL awake. How can he do that? I really don't understand it. He's down to one nap during the day. And sadly Aidan is down to zero naps a day. I guess all I can do is go lay Dylan down in his bed and just cross my fingers he'll fall asleep soon on his own.

More buttons!

I sold my first set of buttons on Etsy the other day! :D I was so excited. So today I grabbed a few more buttons to take photos and list them. Of course I couldn't find the right light anywhere in the house or outside. So taking a few photos ended up taking about an hour (maybe more) ;)

So tonight I'll be sanding and polishing more buttons. I'm feeling the need to grab some clay and start playing again. To bad Dylan's sick. Makes everything that much harder to do. Runny nose and fever. Oh and lets not forget a bad bad BAD case of the whines. I've had two nights of very little sleep and I get the feeling that tonight will be the third....
Did this post make any sense? Did I write that I haven't had much sleep? What was the point of this post? Oh yeah...


(these are the ones)

One down, three to go!

I've done it! My moms blanket is finished! Woohoo!
Knit project #1 - complete! :)

Now on to knit project #2...
This lovely blanket was started... oh I don't know... maybe a year ago? Maybe longer then that. haha. Love it though. Basic cream colored baby blanket. Knit on the diagonal. I plan to finish this one in the next month. So end of February? I have no idea who I'll gift this one to, but I'm sure I can find someone with a baby who'll take it :P
I just might finish those 4 knit projects this year after all :)

The cuddle time is for me.. not you :)

Why is it when one of my children hurt themselves, and those big tears start spilling down their cheeks, I just want to cuddle them close until I think they start feeling better?
My boys on the other hand have a different idea. They let me hold them for maybe 35 seconds and then they start to slowly slide away from my lap and keep crying for maybe 5 steps and then they're happy and playing all over again. Come on! I need more cuddle time then that!

listing buttons

I finally decided to list my button sets on Etsy. Hooray :)

I had a plan to get into bed by 10 p.m. so that I could try and wake up early. I didn't decide to list my buttons until around 10 p.m. :P so that would be why I'm still awake and on the computer at 11:48 p.m. Oops.

I'm happy, and very tired, so now its time to crawl into bed and fall into a nice peaceful sleep... until Dylan wakes up screaming at around 2 a.m. hahaha Night!

Think I'll ever get a picture of him not making this face? :)

Having a not so great day

These kids drive me crazy. I need to sit down and watch a movie and work on my moms blanket and chill out!

Bath time is only 10 minutes away! Then bed time! I can't wait!

Can't the kitchen clean itself?!

I've almost let a week pass without writing on here. I couldn't really think of much to say...and even now I still can't. I'm tired. Still have a kitchen to clean. Because of these....

Yes they taste as good as they look :) Thin mint cookies. Yum.
I can't think of more to write since I'm soooo tired. So here's a few pictures of the boys from the other day. Good night!

New Years Resolution

New years resolution : FINISH 4 KNIT PROJECTS!

I never finish knit projects! Ugh! I've been working on this blanket for my mom for almost 2 years now (give or take).

I love EVERYTHING about this blanket. The colors are amazing. Its really really soft. Plus its very warm without being heavy. I really don't have that much left to do on it. I just never pull it out and work on it. This year, it will be finished!

I have two baby blankets started. Also a scarf. Tons of yarn for other projects I would like to start :P And I just said ok to a friend to try and make a sweater for her little dog. lol! Really wondering how that will turn out! Almost forgot. I started some knit place mats in red and green for Christmas. I think I started those two years ago too!

So, four projects need to be finished in 2010. I'm starting with my moms blanket. I'll give myself till the end of February. Here we go...

I think I'm going a little crazy. I also think everyone in this house should take a nap.

Afternoon in the forest

Sims 3 is going to be the end of me. I was up playing till 2:30 in the morning again. Ah! How do I do that when I only plan on playing for 20 t0 30 minutes?! Dylan woke up at 3:30 a.m. and would just not go back to sleep. So I started doing what I said I wasn't going to do with him... I put him in bed with me. He's crazy about the light coming from the alarm clock so it took a good hour to get him back to sleep. I then put him back in his crib so I could get a few hours of sleep. Up at 8:30 and with a bottle I think he slept another hour. Maybe. So thankfully with a cup of coffee and a nice shower I was able to get myself and the kids ready and out of the house. Off to the park we went. The weather was beautiful! It did us good to get out there and enjoy the day.

We didn't get to the park till around 12:30. Dylan's nap time. Poor kid slept in the car for only a few minutes then woke up to play.
Aidan decided to be nice to me and let me take a good picture of him standing still LOL Thanks Aido!
The boys took their hot wheels cars.
Aidan found some "gifts" for me. I'm not sure if they made it home with us :)

Then it was off to an adventure of walking through the "forest". Aidan really likes the idea of forests for some reason :P

Then he spotted the kids on the playground of the nearby school. He can't wait to go to school. Two more years buddy... two more years. Once again Aidan, Mommy is in no rush for you to grow up. SLOW DOWN! :)

Now lets see if I can get some crafting done!
