apple blossems crazy kids and getting ready to head out to san diego.

beautiful isn't it? my apple trees are all blooming! i'm so excited i can hardly stand it!!! last year we got a couple of apples that made for some good sling shots...nothing else...but i hear that around here (and everywhere else?) apple trees produce every other year, and if that's the case this is the year that i will be making some yummy stuff with apples!!! i really want to make apple butter, and can some of them for apple pie fillings, i don't even know what kind of apples they are but i don't care!!! i'm going to try!!!
julie's "it's my final baby" quilt is done...yeah i was dumb enough to stay up till 2 am watching arrested development episode after episode after episode, laughing hysterically and binding the quilt. but it's done!
now i have to get ready for my trip out of here! i'm trying to be all efficient by making sure i clean and pack today. i have a baby shower to go to tomorrow and i really want to just relax tomorrow so that i can be ready for the 10+ hours it's going to take me to drive to my mom's. but i've got my ipod all ready with new songs, and i finally got my favorite band All American Rejects albums put on there as well, so all is well.
i'll just leave you with a little "nateism" i heard the kids laughing hysterically and nate yelling "mom! QUICK!!! i don't know how much longer i can hold on! ----GET THE CAMERA!!!" i snapped the picture and then the next question was "are you going to blog it?" now there's a phrase i NEVER said to my mom...yup buddy you made the blog!!! woohooo!

I love apple blossoms too! We have a tree in our back yard that looked just like that a couple weeks ago... I guess we're a little ahead. Your quilt looks great!!!

Hey, sorry I didn't mention Kaleb has.. had the chicken pox. It only lasted about 72 hours and his fever started wednesday and ended wednesday, so I think you guys are in the clear. If you do get it while you are in CA you can loath and hate me forever. Sorry ;(
