money talks

Sorry about the total lack of blogging lately. I've been kind of tied in with this other blog that I started. It actually took off pretty quick and even had an article written about it. I'm kinda proud actually. But the point is that after I do all that intense blogging I'm pretty tired of the computer if you can believe that.

But anyhoo, here's what's up with the kids this week. Abby is getting over her freakish people phobias. I think we're on the upswing. That's super good. We managed to make it to church with minimal drama. That's a huge relief. I knew it would pass, but whoa, that was a rough month.

Will has discovered the joys of cash. He's getting a little allowance for doing chores around the house. My windows have never been cleaner. So he picks up laundry, washes the windows, and (get this, it's pretty sweet) gets Abby out of bed in the morning. She's pleased as punch to wake up to her big brother. It's pretty cute. This week he spent his money on french macaroons at the Farmer's Market downtown. I think he'd do it again too. He's playing with Britten this week. She's in town and came over this afternoon to play after they all went to the zoo. They had a blast. So that's what's new in the casa.

Here's the link to the other blog. There are a few more kiddy pictures on it. And here's a link to the article about it. Cool, huh?!

Working Hard at the Farm Today.

Today we expanded the farm. We doubled it's size and besides two people, we did it all Cupitts. Stephen was an excellent foreman. He kept us all busy and safe. :)

Abby got so incredibly dirty that we had to bathe her outside. We filled up the pool with soapy water and she took a long cold bath. All the dirt and, um... other organic matter is still being brushed out of her hair.

My Quilt

I said I would post this, so here it is. It's taking me forever, but I mostly like every step of it.

Sorry I don't have fascinating stories and awesome pictures of the kids lately. As you probably know, Abby has lost her bloody mind and is a whining basket case that is making me a hermit and a hostage alone in my own home. BUT, we had some progress at Jen and Greg's last night. She didn't cry the whole time and even had a touch of fun. Will had a blast with Cara and Preston. Maybe we're coming out the other side with Abs. Crossing my fingers.

Jenn and Shawn's girls

These are Jenn and Shawn's little ones. Ainsley just turned one and Skyler is a month old. They are so cute, and Ainsley just wanted to kiss her all day.
