A trip to the doctor.....

Led to a breathing treatment. Aidan has had this cough for a couple of weeks now, and I just couldn't find anything to get rid of it. So I finally caved in this afternoon and took him to the doctor. She thinks that he has bad allergies, so I have to give him breathing treatments every 4 hours as needed. Good thing I had this machine. Jude always had troubles as a little guy, so I had got this machine, seeings how the insurance was going to pay for it. So it has really come in handy. I hope it clears up his cough! And I also hope that he doesn't catch anything else, that doctors office was PACKED! Full of kids coughing all over one another, sniffing and sneezing. Ugh, I felt like germ city when I left there! All of these poor kids. I hate seeing my kids sick. So anyway, that was my Monday. :) Sounds fun huh? hehe! Hope you all had a better day than me!

Leslie has got me HOOKED!

Oh boy, Leslie has got me hooked on making stitcheries now. :) They are so addicting...and so much FUN! I have been all over looking for sites with free stitchery patterns. So if anyone out there knows of some good ones, please leave them in my comments! I whipped up these 4 last night and got them stained and framed this morning. Whatcha think?

Thanks for looking! Have a beautiful PRIM day!

A trip to the State Park!

Oh my is it a BEAUTIFUL day here in Bourbonnais! The sun is shining and the weather is perfect. Joe and I decided to take the boys to the State Park to walk some trails. We haven't done this for a few years, and I have missed doing it. The only bad thing is right now the river is up because of all of the rain we had recently had. So we weren't able to take some of the better trails. We will have to plan another trip there again soon. I could spend the entire day there just snapping pictures of my boys! Joe and I even included ourselves in a couple. :) It was just the most perfect day to do this. I am hoping to get there a few more times before Joe has to start mowing, then he isn't home till dark. So we need to do as much together as a family before then. So I would like to add some pictures to share with you. It's ncie, we only live about 10-15 minutes from here.
Here's my crazy boys!
Joe with the boys! My 3 handsome men, hehe!!
Me and the boys! I love this picture. I don't have too many of these. :) I am not one to like my picture being taken. But I have been thinking that I better make some memories with my kids!

And here is Jude, he found himself a walking stick! :)

This picture is one of my favs too, my 3 men looking sitting on a rock looking out into the river.

And here's another of me and the boys.

I am going to MYRTLE BEACH!!

I am soooo excited! My sister in law has invited my mom, my daughter and myself to take a 5 day vacation with her and my nieces! I can not wait! A girls get-away, how fun! We will be leaving April 19th! It's a 15 hour drive for us, so we may have to stop half way and stay overnight somewhere, unless my 3.5 year old nieces cooperate and sleep through the night drive. hehe! I have NEVER been to a beach, NEVER! I am so looking forward to walking barefoot in the sand. I am ready to pack today! hehe! We will be staying in a 3 bedroom condo for the time we are there, which is nice cause it has a kitchen and laundry room. So we will not have to eat out all the time we are there, and we can cut back on some luggage. :)

Whatcha Working on Wednesday!

Ok, I wanted to join in on the fun that Lelsie has so gratiously shared with us! I have finally accomplished a couple of things this week. First I have some paper mache stars that I have painted, distressed and stained. I bought these at Hobby Lobby as ornies, and I just cut off the string. I got these for a BARGAIN! And they have been GREAT sellers for me in my booth at the Antique Mall. I painted these a cream color and used a antiquing gel stain over them. I love how they look in this bowl...guess I will be keeping this set to myself, hehe!

Then I made a new Spring/Easter pillow for my booth also. I like how my little egg turned out. I just stitched it on a muslin pillow and gave it a border. Whatcha think?
