I have been working on this quilt for the foot of my bed for a while now and I finally completed it, I am pretty happy with the way it turned out.

Doggy Quilt

One of my favorite pass times is to quilt. I love the idea of taking different patterns and textures and turning them into something fun and cuddly. I bought a book years ago to make this quilt for my son and because it was more complex than I normally do I kept putting it off.
He's getting older and I was struggling with a idea for Christmas, one thing I do know about him is he is often time wrapped up in not just one but usually two or three blankets watching TV, playing the play station or his favorite jumping on the tramp with blankets as padding. So I decided to embark on this quilt, it is a buggy barn pattern and it was more time consuming but in the end I absolutely would do it again. I love it all the different colors and shapes and who doesn't just want to fall in love with all these cute puppies.
Needless to say he was ecstatic he uses it everyday.

New Years Resolutions

I haven't been the best at keeping up with my blog this past year or two but I think perhaps I will try and do better so here's to a new year.

We were lucky enough to get the opportunity to go to sunny St. George a couple of weekends ago, oh how nice it was to get a relief from the cold winter here at home. It was so nice that we were able to spend one full day outside playing with the kiddo's.

Christmas 2010

All of us together at grandmas to make out annual ginger bread house the only difference was that it was a train this year, it is always fun to do something kind of different.

This year we had such a wonderful Christmas season, we spent a lot of time with family and friends doing all types of fun things. Jay and I also had a great time with everyone and were reminded how fortunate we are to live so close to all the people in our life's that love and support us. We are so grateful for all the blessings that we have received and for all the joy that is brought into our life's on a daily basis from our two wonderful children.
We are looking forward to a new year and are excited for what it might bring.

Puppy Love

So the day finally came that Jay was able to get another lab pup. Her name is Maggie and she is 10 weeks old. We are loving having her around, she is the most cuddly puppy we have ever been around.
Shaddy wasn't to fond of her at the beginning but is finally warming up to her, it is so cute. Maggie grabs Shaddy by the collar and leads her around the house. What a patient dog Shaddy is.

Oct. 9th was one of the most joyous occasions of our lives. We were so blessed to have the opportunity to be seal as a eternal family in the Draper temple. We were also blessed to have so many family members and close friends attend this joyous event. Thanks you all for all the love and support you have shown our family as we started this journey.
