Christmas Through the Year - May

Zoom. Did you blink too? May just got here and now we're jumping into June! I'm not going to complain though. In all honesty, I miss our boy, and he can't get back home fast enough so time can just speed up if it wants to. Please.

DH jumped out of bed this morningat 2:30. He jumps, even at 2:30 am. I am more of a crawler, but it works. He left at 3 to help the neighbors brand. I'm tellin' ya', your neighbors are pretty darn special when you get up at 2:30 to help them, but they do the same for us. :) They're going to have all kinds of fun today since the wind's already blowing like crazy - hard enough to make the house creak. Makes for a really long day when you walk back in the door at 8 pm which is about what time I got done with chores last night.

I'm still hanging in there with  Christmas Through the Year that Darlene and Cheryl are hosting. They are both cheering us on - with pom-poms! I am convinced it's the pom poms that are keeping me on track. :)

Still May was a crazy month, but I'm hearing that from a lot of people.

This month my


 project isn't fabric and thread related, but I saw these last year somewhere and printed out the instructions because I KNEW I had to make some.

 Some, being 6...as of now. I'm fairly certain I will be adding to that number.
 A new family is moving in over at North Camp this weekend and they have 2 kids, 9 and 5 - guess what they're getting. :)
I've got 2 nephews and a niece who come to visit between Christmas and New Year's, and I know our two kiddos will each get one. I know them all too well and that means that DH will have to have one so if he gets one, his brother will need one. It's kind of like if you give a mouse a cookie...

 So see, that's already 9. Guess who'll be heading back to the Farm Store next time she goes to town? :) In fact, when I went in there this time, they started asking questions and everyone got excited so I left the instructions with them. What do you wanna bet, there'll be a run on the PVC components for these?
