I had this old dress that I bought like 8 or 9 years ago for like $3 or $5...to say the least it does not fit anymore. But, I love the color and texture of it so I decided to make some napkins out of it! Here is a better picture of the color.
I sergered around the edges and was able to make 15 napkins. They were not all the same exact size but they were pretty close! I was really pleased with how they came out!

DH officially has a J-O-B!!! Praise God!! He is filling out the paperwork now and then he has to go for a physical...which he should have no problem passing. They offered him a $1 more an hour than they originally said..Praise God!! It is a $5 an hour pay cut (that is $800 a month) but I still am going to Praise God that he has a job now!!
Now we are on the hunt for a good used car and until we get one I will be home and he will be driving 'my' van.

Chocolate truffles!

This is DD's new pillowcase dress that I made this week. It has chocolate truffles all over it! YUM!! Then we have chocolate raspberry body pray that we put on her and she smells just like a chocolate truffle! This is some of the fabric that I got when I went to TN in March with my mom and aunt to a quilt festival.

Just because they are so darn handsome!

The boys have been enjoying the swingset!

It's a jungle out there!

Our at least it is a jungle around here! My 6 yo found this little frog yesterday....then my 3 yo let it loose! And then my 6 yo was none to happy!


DH found a frog in the boys bathroom this morning in behind the toilet!! EWW!! That has got to be the grossest place in our whole house!! And how it got in there I have no idea!

Baby bunnies!

We found some baby bunnies in the back yard. (Being that I have several bunny loving friends I will leave out the rest of the story, lets just say it has something to do with the lawnmower you see in the background.)

Water balloon launcher!

My mom bought my 6 year old a water balloon launcher last year for his birthday. If you do not have one I highly recommend it!! We can get the little water balloons to launch way over 100 feet!!

Why does it take 2 hours to fill up a bag of water balloons but only 2 minutes to break them all???
