why is it?

why is it that I can think all day of stuff that I would like to add to my blog and then when I can actually sit down to type - I can't think of a darn thing?

lets see - we transitioned Thomas from a toddler bed to a twin size mattress. His nightly routine of bouncing on his bed, had completely wrecked his little mattress, and it was so lumpy, I thought it was probably the culprit of why he wasn't sleeping very well any more. So tonight it goes out with the trash. Grandma was kind enough to let us store the toddler bed frame in her storage shed out behind the house, so we didn't have to haul it all the way over the mountain to our storage shed in Benson. I feel guilty for not putting Thomas's new mattress on an actual bed - it makes me feel so "getto" - we have a bed, out in storage, but I don't want to have to haul it here - especailly if we will be moving "soon". He doesn't know any better, so he doesn't mind, I guess.

I am in the process of attempting to make a mei tai - an asian style baby sling type thing, for carrying Grayson on my back. He loves to be held alot, but has gotten so big so fast, that my arms get tired fast, so I always wish I just had a baby backpack. So I started looking on line and came across many tutorials for how to make my own. I bought the fabric yesterday - $11 - much better price than the $80 it would cost to buy one. So I have the pieces cut out, and tonight after the kids go to bed, I will get it sewn together. Then tomorrow I can test it out. I hope that Grayson will like it. And I think I am going to like having my hands free.

I think I will get the photos off my camera onto the computer, and then I can post a few more recent pictures - sorry I never did post any of Bear Lake - maybe I will add a few of those too.


finally some news

after waiting over a week after e-mailing the NNHC, we called today to ask if there has been any progress.
He said yes, that finally we have 5 families approved for the Corinne building project. The last family was only approved yesterday, so there will still be at least another week or 2 before we can begin the preconstruction meetings.
Also, we decided to flip the house plan that we chose, so that the garage will be on the east side of the house, so it will take a little bit of time to get that approved as well.
so that is what is new
