The Wait is Over...!

For some of you, this didn't come early enough! But a picture of the rag-quilt my mom and I made for Natalie's baby (Rylie) is now for viewing! This project took longer than expected and was a little more difficult than we thought it would be. My hand is probably permanently damaged from all of the clipping I did, but it was well worth it! We are so happy about how it turned out! I also threw in some of the burp cloths I made while in Moab. (If you click on the picture, you can see in detail what the blanket looks like). Enjoy!!!

I just wanted to post a picture of Chris's haircut because I am pretty dang proud! This is only the 2nd haircut I have given him (and the 1st one wasn't nearly as good). We haven't saved any money yet, but we will soon! Maybe I could start an in home business....Just kidding! Doesn't Chris look so handsome!!! Love you all!

Well, school starts for me again on Monday and I am getting pretty nervous! I always get a little nervous at the beginning of each semester, but then I get in a routine and press onward! Chris is off-track this semester and is working for a family of farmers down in Idaho Falls. He works long hours and I don't see him very much, but he is a good, hard worker and a wonderful provider. My neighbors have offered to give me a ride up to campus since they have classes the same time I do. How I appreciate them! Also, the temperature has been cooling off. The high today was only like 70 degrees--and it's the beginning of September! (I guess I ought to let you know that the first snow last year was in September). I am still clinging to summer! Anyways, here is a picture of one of the potatoes Chris brought home last year from work.
