March Break

It had been a few days since I last blogged and have so much to catch you all up on. We are finally have some warmer weather and are finally caught up on snow shoveling.
Last week the girls had a Expo at their school for their enrichment section that they did.( It is when they out some thing they would like to join and they go to these classes once a week for six weeks. There are all different things,like pottary, animals,scrapbooking,cooking, music, crafts, and geo cashing.) Jayne was in cooking and Jill music. THey enjoyed it and both learned a few new things. They got to show me what they learned at the expo.
Jayne looks pretty neat with those Chef hats they gave all the little cooks.
She was selling Banana choc.chip muffins at the expo that they had made that morning.
Jill was setting up her program in which she learned all her keyboarding skills.
She loves music and her teacher told how much she really enjoyed this class.

We are on our annual March break this week.So it has really been a mixed up tossed up week.

We are almost done our March break, and have got a lot done this week. We spent the beginning of the week Spring cleaning the upstairs. We all worked very hard taking everything out of our drawers,and washed everything done. Washed the walls, lights,and went through our closets. We also made some changes in Justin's room and he loves it.(I will post some pics on it a little later this weekend)
Jayne and I worked at taking the border off her walls so that I can paint early next week,or maybe even on the weekend.
HB is loving his new job. He is tired as it is hard getting back into the routine of 12 hours shifts again. He is also working in training so it has been 5, 12 hour shifts for 2 weeks. Yesterday he got sent in for a meeting in the offices and they want his to take a hire posting as he is well over qualified. It will be a staff job. He is happy and will give his disision today. He is also hoping to be off tomorrow and we decided to go to the city and take the weeones to a movie. We usually do something for March break and this year well with the whole new job thing we did not get to. So it will be nice.
We are expecting more rain for the weekend. At least it is not snow. I think the only one around that is not Happy to see Spring come is our Pig.
This weekend is the time change so it will make our days longer. YEAH!!!
So have I been crafting.........
Well not to much. I have some beautiful new fabric I got from EBAY. I also ordered more and am planning a whole lot of sewing for Spring. As soon as I am done Jayne's room I am going to get at it. My sewing machine is still sitting out on the island. (The tension is off set and Hb needs to set it before I can continue anymore) It seems that every time I put my sewing machine away and take it back back out I go through the same thing. HUMMM!!!!
Well I should go and finish up my laundry. Take care and I wish you all a great day.


  1. What a great thing for them to learn. The cooking skills will come in handy.

    You have been busy with your cleaning. We don't have our Spring break until the last week of March. The girls are counting the time down until that happens. They are excited as we are staying home.

    Have a great day.


  2. I think our local schools have Spring break next week. I have some sewing I am needing to do making outside pillows for the porch. I love new fabric. I borderline having a fabric addiction...LOL. Can't wait to see what you're doing to all the kids rooms. I bet they will all look great. So glad about your hubbys job! I know he is proud. What movie are you going to see? Have you seen the advertisement for that Easter movie where the rabbit poops daughter saw it and thought that must really be where jelly beans come from at Easter..LOL. Well I've gabbed on enough for today. Hope you have a great rest of your week and weekend :)
