Catching Up...

So here I am again catching up...we have had alot going on at the Book's home but you know us we always take time for a little play! Last weekend we let the boys take a friend to Kearney to the Big Apple Fun Center and to the movie Gulliver's Travel. Riley brought his friend Alex and Chandler brought Conner. They all had a wonderful time playing in the Ballocity, had Pizza and then headed to the movie. We had a great time!!

On Sunday Riley had his Pinewood Derby for Cub Scouts.
This year Ry decided he was going for speed...not something the Book's knows
much about ;) The past he has been all about the design and COOL but not
this year Riley wanted to go for the GOLD!!

and he did it!!! He won 1st Place in his den.

Riley and Trevor Linn

Ready, Set, GO!

Tristan Green (Tigers) Jovi Cervantes (Webelos)

This is how I feel today...it has been a long week going 100 mph
and 100 different directions at once. But I would not want it any
other way, I love being a mommy and all the "extras" that
comes with the calling.
A nap would really be great too!

All work, no play...

Gran and I got together to quilt while Grandpa, Joe and boys went goose hunting. I got to use the Singer Featherweight sewing machine, I truly LOVE to sew with this machine and makes me think about the days when women quilted for the need of her family not just for the hobby.
I love to quilt and right now I am working on a special project for my sweet hubby, it is good to know it will be a much used and loved quilt, just as those made back when quilting was all work and no play.
