Waste Not

In an attempt to make encourage my kids to eat the 4 containers of vanilla yogurt that they deemed too sour, I decided to make yogurt pops!
I dumped the yogurt into my food processor,
added some homemade strawberry jam,
and some frozen blueberries.
After it was all mixed up, I put the mixture into paper cups with popsicle sticks inserted.
I also made some chocolate banana ones. These have mashed bananas and chocolate syrup added instead.

As soon as they were frozen,
they started disappearing!

Problem solved!

Ah-Chooo.... Snort.... Cough.....

The second week of school and my son not only caught a cold, but shared it with all of us. (I won't name any names, but he's really good at that.) Groan...
So right now, all the littles are sick,
but still smiling!
Well, most of the time....
Gotta love the snotty nose trail!

Hopefully we all will feel better soon!!

A Blankie For Baby

I fell in love with one of those pre-sewn panels at Jo-Ann's. (I love a good toile!)

So against my better judgement, I bought it!

I carefully zig-zagged the edges so as not to lose any precious inches when I washed it.

After I washed it? Well, it didn't look as good. The craftsmanship used to sew this panel was lacking some finesse! Oh well, I guess I should have expected that! All the ironing in the world wasn't going to fix the imperfections. (Believe me, I tried!)

So, I sewed the panel down to some muslin on the long seams (stitched in the ditch) down the front to give it some strength. 

Now that it's done, I think it will do!
Finished blankie!
I rounded the corners, just like I did with Josiah's blankie, learned here.

And the back is all soft, swirly minkee fabric!

Hopefully, baby will approve!

And So It Begins.... Again

Today was the first day of school for my kids. Sadly, I watched my older kids ride off on the bus this morning. I missed them all day!

At home we started school too. Well, kind of.... We are still waiting for most of the books. But Abby got to start on her reading work!
Bunny ears and all! (?) :)

I pray for a great school year for all of us!!
