My STAY-cation!

Good morning [[[[YAWN]]]] Blogging Friends!I can't seem to wake up this a.m.!
So much going on around here and I'm exhausted from what is supposed to be my Stay-cation!
Looks like my 'Peace and Quiet' is going to be elusive this summer.
Anna Belle had a mishap with Superman, aka her twin brother, Tate.
They were jumping on the furniture after being told numerous times to 'cut it out'. I've been teaching them about 'choices and consequences'. My kids are VERY stubborn and sometimes it takes a literal example to teach them. This was one of those examples, I guess. He jumped on her and she flung her arm out and caught the back of the loveseat at the corner where the wood joins together. She broke both her Ulna and Radius at the wrist. they were clean breaks and didn't have to be set, for which we are all so THANKFUL for. She was cast on Friday (5th). Our summer beach plans are on hold.
I've bought a few more patterns. This one I couldn't resist from Kim @ ORP.
 These are from Chestnut Junction and I can't WAIT to make them!
My sewing machine has been put away for a bit. I'm going into town this morning to pick up a new sander so I can cut out some Halloween items. I've actually listed my Halloween inventory in my Etsy shop. You can see my Etsy Mini on my right side bar.
I've got to take my little girl to the Heart doctor tomorrow along with her broken wrist. When she was born, they thought she might have Mitral Valve Prolapse (a floppy valve). It runs in my family on my mother's side and I have 2 kids with it already so I'm sure she does, too. If it isn't "one thing, it's another" right?!
Hope your summer Vacations and Stay-cations are proving to be a bit more positive than mine. At least it's beautiful here and we're getting some much needed rain. Looks like there is some kind of Tropical system out in the Carribean that we'll have to watch for. Sure wouldn't mind the rain it can bring.
I've got something FUN up my sleeve so.....
Stay tuned!

WOW a fun staycation!
My family went camping without me--YEAH!! Then I ended up with the stomach flu. So my staycation ended up staying close to the restroom.

Hope we both end up with a better staycation here in the new future.

Hoping her heart is OK and arm is healed quickly and soon good to go.

Try not to take in out on your new sander!

I can't keep my nine year old off the couch either. Head stands and jumping off the arms. One day she's going to get her head in the fan. Both my girls broke thier elbows and it's such a sad thing to deal with in the summer. I am sorry. Hopefully this will stop the rough housing though!! Never to early to start thinking of the fall decor. My machine has been in the box since Mother's Day. Gasp!!

Bless her heart. She looks so sad. Hope its not to painful. Sure hope Anna Belle doesn't have the heart problems.

Hope you get some rain and some sleep too.



Nothing like being home!! Hope everyone stays out of trouble and gets well. Just what we need, MORE RAIN, we have had so much rain up here, that we can't keep the grass mowed.

Aww, poor baby girl. You could wrap her cast in saran wrap and go to the beach :)
I've got one that won't listen either even though she's old enough to know I'm right... ha ha!

Oh poor Anna Belle. I also broke my ulna and radius (left arm) on Father's Day and am still in a cast. No surgery needed for me, either. Praying for Anna Belle to heal soon. 'Love your new patterns. Prim blessings :)
