Some pics and an update of sorts

See, I told you there are too many great patterns in this magazine!

Here is the free pattern that someone announced in a newsletter. You can find the design here. Look at Victoriana, then under Freebies.

Here is The Prairie Schooler, Inc. Snowy Night pattern from the JCS Christmas Ornament Magazine for 2008

Here is the Scandinavian Stitches Norweigan Reindeer from the same magazine. (Just need to finish both now!!)

It's been rather crazy around this house this last month. I was started awake yesterday by DH asking if Logan had any bread left. Logan is on the GF/CF diet and it's not always easy finding things that he will eat but bread is one thing he absolutely loves. He loves his PB toast and boy you'd better never run out of bread or PB! I jumped out of bed to go searching (very groggily I might add) for his bread. We order it from Amazon once a month and I supplement with homemade between orders. This month he hasn't really been very receptive to the store bought so we decided to skip the next shipment and wouldn't you know it was all gone! I had to think quick (still more than half asleep) and decided to make some homemade waffles for him. The whole time I'm doing this he's standing there giving me the "Logan Look".

He's standing there in his jammie bottoms, no shirt and his blanket wrapped around his neck/head fuming at me. Good thing the recipe is easy to follow or I'd have been in BIG trouble. Once his first waffles were done, he was happy again and I could make some much needed coffee. (if I weren't afraid of needles I'd have set up an I.V. and just went for the vein shot of caffeine) I then had to throw all the ingredients in the bread machine (wonderful WONDERFUL invention!!) so he could have some fresh bread later on. The boy proceeded to eat three or four waffles and snack on other stuff. Once the bread was done, he was eyeing it saying "I want peanut butter toast, please, thank you, OKAY!" He ended up eating two pieces and a piece of cinnamon toast too. He's obviously having a growing spurt. I'm just thankful he's eating as some days he just picks at his food.

I hate days like that. The good thing was I just continued from there and washed all the clothes (towels will be done today) and did dishes, mopped the dining room floor and vaccumed everything. (had to mop the floor because he let me know he wasn't happy being made to wait for his food by playing in his chocolate milk on the chair and floor) Not two hours later the playroom was demolished and the food crumbs from their snacks and lunch were all over the place. Why do I bother, I ask myself this question a lot. LOL

I was sort of complaining to a friend during our coffee break yeterday, that i feel really a 'maid' in our house by our kids.
