5 Thoughts
1. I have been very absent this week, but for a good reason as it is spring break!  My in-laws came in town for it and we have been having so much fun.  I used to be good about scheduling posts ahead of time, but totally dropped the ball this week.

2. Ryder's soccer game went so much better last Friday.  He was happier, totally in there and looked pretty dang good.  Another practice/game for him tonight.

3. This week Alex has helped my MIL make dinner twice.  The dinners were awesome and it is pretty nice having someone else make the meals.  I think I am going to have a hard time adjusting next week when they are gone.

4. Saw Insurgent last night with Eric and his dad.  They definitely changed some things up, as they always do in movie adaptations but it has been a while since I have read the books, so we were all sitting there trying to remember what actually happened in the books.

5.Yesterday, Lucas and Alex were both up to some sneaky project with my MIL that involved the sewing machine.  I wasn't allowed to go see what they were doing.  Thankfully I didn't have to wait too long, Alex sewed for me and Lucas for Eric a new pillow cases.  I am totally impressed with how good it looks and how straight it is.  Like I said, I am going to miss having my in-laws around.  Alex is so excited about sewing now and is going on and on about all the things she wants to try and sew; guess I had better learn how to thread the sewing machine.

  3. So fun! Seriously all of it! Glad you had such a fun week!

  4. Now I want cherry pie. I love cherry pie! I can't wait for the cherry tree to bloom! Tell alex she can come make me a pie any time :) haha! So what do the pillow cases look like?/

    1. I finally added a picture on instagram of the pillows :) She did a great job with the pie

  5. So there were numerous men at the craft conference and one male professional quilter! So there are lots of guys out there who love to sew!! That is just so awesome that Alex and Lucas were sewing!! If you need any help let me know!! I love to sew!

    1. That is cool! Yes my MIL said Lucas was a total natural and did so good. Thank you!
