Unfortunately, a friend of theirs had a death in the family and my brother's wife was helping with the food at the funeral today. My brother was supposed to take care of his three kids while she was gone. You know where this is going, right? Since he was coming here to help in Ashley's room I got volunteered to babysit the kids. Now, don't get me wrong, I love my neice and nephews but taking care of three kids under the age of 5 is HARD work!!! Especially when I'm used to a 16 year old - lol!!
I was there all day today and was feeling so stressed out on my way home. The kids were tired and didn't want to nap since "Aunt Lisa" was there. That lead to them being whiny and fighting a lot. It was just a rough day all the way around and I knew there would be a mess waiting here. Not to mention a tired and grumpy husband. Luckily, my husband isn't grumpy at all and hopefully won't be too tired to spend some time with me later tonight.
Anyway, when I walked in the house I noticed that there were some packages waiting for me. This is becoming a regular thing and I'm loving it!! It feels like Christmas every day around here! Well, today's packages were especially great and made my day brighten up considerably.
First, there was a package from Barbara in Canada. She is a fellow member of the Stashbuster email list and offered to send me a "piggy". There are 12 blocks made out of kids prints. I'm going to make it into a quilt for charity. Here is a picture of the blocks.
