The Weekend

We had another great weekend here in Lawrence.  The boys played in their second soccer game and Steve played in his 3,452 soccer game.

Hudson going in for a goal.

Airplane arms after scoring the first goal of the game.

H & L each scored 4 goals in the game.  It was a proud moment for this mama.    

That's Steve in the middle with the ball at his game.  He scored a goal too. 

Steve I went to an event Saturday night and the boys favorite babysitter watched them.  She works for a scrapbook company and brought all of these for them to play with.  There were so many squeals of joy when she dumped them out on the table.  Not just from the boys ... I squealed too.

This is one of my latest projects.  I found something similar on Pinterest and copied it.  It's just fabric glued to the picture frame and a white letter glued on top of the fabric.  So easy and so cheap!

These are my last set of drapes to sew for this house.  You might recognize the pattern from the ones in the Bachelor Pad.  Or you might have a life and not know what I'm talking about.  

Finally, one of my best childhood friends is having brain surgery to remove a tumor today.  She's 34 and has a newborn baby.  Life is not fair.  But, she's one of the strongest girls I know.  She will pull through and be stronger than ever after this.  If you have room in your prayers, please say one for her.

I have been extremely distracted by the following three things:

1. The weather
2. Sewing
3. Halloween candy (why do they put it out so early?!)

It's beautiful in Kansas right now.  Our high is in the 70's and it gets down into the 50's in the morning and at night.  We met our friends Kimberly and Jackson at the zoo today for a play date to enjoy this beautiful weather while we can.

On a separate note, we welcomed a new little girl to our family yesterday!  My brother's wife gave birth to a little girl that does not yet have a name.  I cannot wait to meet her!!
