Gracie was extremely clingy Tuesday and Wednesday. She is just having a hard time with getting her two year molars and wants mom to hold her all the time. We didn't go to church Wednesday partly due to me not wanting to be in the nursery or hallway with Gracie the whole night. But Lillie was sure to make me feel bad as she said "But Mom, I really wanted to go to church tonight." We did play church that night and she had a lot of fun.
Thursday was Gracie's first day of preschool. Actually, I was the helper and she came with me this time. I have been promising her that she could come and each time something would come up and she would not get to. She loved every minute of it. She did some of the activities and made a new friend. She also became quite attached to Ms. Bobbi (the teacher). Lillie on the other hand was a bit cranky. She had woke up too early and didn't go back to sleep. While putting Gracie down for a nap, I looked over and found Lillie on the ottoman fast asleep that afternoon. I moved her to her bed and when she got up sh was upset that I messed her bed up. She has been making it all by herself this week and is really proud of it. So am I!
Here is a picture of Gracie I took the other day. I was working on the computer and looked over to see her opening Alex's accounting book and then putting on his glasses. It was adorable.Today I woke up a bit under the weather, but needed to go to the store. The girls were very good and had to wear their bracelets and bring their bunnies (thanks Gma & Gpa). I am hoping for a nice quiet evening tonight.

This is a picture of Tallie peeking under the fence at us jumping in leaves. We would have loved to go out back and play with her, but as soon as Alex opened the door, he was swarmed by a couple of wasps. After last falls experience with wasps (Lillie was attacked by a nest) we thought we better wait until Alex could spray the nest. Don't worry about her though, we had to buy her a birthday present for this weekend. Tallie officially turns one on Saturday and she is in need of a couple of new toys, since she has chewed her others to pieces.
Alex and I have filled out our brackets for March Madness and I am looking forward to beating him again! I am not bragging (pride cometh before a fall), but since we started making the brackets out for competition, I have beat him 3 out of 3 times. But it has always been close.

I should have enough quilting stuff to keep me busy for the next several weeks (or months depending on how much free time I end up with). I am excited though. I had ordered some quilt blocks from eBay a few months back and have them sewn together, but hadn't had a chance to get backing, trim or batting. I should know have all the material I need (although I not completely sure that I have enough backing) to finish that. Plus I bought material to make a baby quilt for a good friend. I also have a pattern and material for a dress that I am going to make for Lillie. Hopefully, the dress will turn out-I have never made a dress before!
Well, I am getting antsy writing about my quilting stuff and am going to get started. Have a great weekend.

I took some really cute pictures of Gracie yesterday, but because I am not into posting half dressed little ones on line you will have to take my word for it! I walked over to the bathroom because Gracie had to take herself potty (doesn't always want Momma's help) and she was sitting on the potty chair reading a book out loud. It was really adorable.
Have a great weekend! I plan on it since we have rescheduled our date night for tomorrow. Yay!

This is the puzzle Lillie talked Daddy into buying several months back. She finally talked us into helping her work it. Although the whole time she would go "I don't know why Daddy let me buy such a hard puzzle."
