Halloween Pumpkins!

These are our pumpkins this year!! These are the new fake pumpkins that you can carve. They are great! Of course the first one is Joey our wonderful little boy. And then I figured the "welcome" one was cute too!


First Felting Project!!!

Here it is, my first felting project. I just love it!!



Thats how things have been lately!!

Crocheting- lets see. Oh, I found out who my secret pal was....It was Becks (Becky)!!! She has been absolutely wonderful!!! Let's see if I can list everything I received off the top of my head...A wonderful afghan (I think the fading is beautiful), 2 Skeins of 100% wool with Koolaid to dye (I can't wait to do this), a wonderful book on felting (I am not determined to learn to knit as well), a baby afghan book (which is absolutely perfect since I am making a baby blanket for my bestfriend), "Herman" the turtle figurine/candle (I'm so impressed with him...he is absolutely perfect and will always be known as Herman), a wonderful very soft cat bed which my cats sleep in ALL THE TIME (they love it- we have it on top of our TV cabinet!), a perfect pumpkin hot pad (I am so interested to learn how to do this....its amazing!), a turtle keychain (which is already on my keys), a book- "Turtle Diary" (which I am starting today on my way to Traverse City), the cutest turtle handkerchief, "Quakers the Duck" ( ), and the cutest stuffed animal turtle (I think his name is going to be Stan), turtle scissors (awesome) and then most amazing scissors holder (its cross-stitched and beaded)....since I received her wonderful reveal package I have completed my first dye and felting project....a really cute bag that I will post pics of soon.

TTC- Things are overall crappy. T and I got the results of our tests back and I am "all clear", but his SA came back a little low on morphology...so needless to say things have been stressful. I wasn't able to get in with the dr. again until the 31st (so we are missing another month). Then I decided that I just didn't think this dr. could provide everything we are going to need (he is just an OB/GYN) so I called and made an appointment with a local RE (really good and well known) for 11/08. So hopefully we can get things moving. I'm thinking we will go straight to IUI, but the doctors may have other ideas ;) . T and I have been all over each other (not in a good way) about everything. Just bitching and moaning. We both think it has to do with the extra stress of TTC so we are trying to take it easy. I bought the book "The Conception Chronicles" which is really humorous and have been loving it. Trying to insert some humor into this horrible process.

Promise to be back and post a pic of my latest project soon!



Ok, I seriously need to get here more often...

Lets see...what has happened since I was last here. Apparently, a lot since it has been so long.

Crocheting- I am working on finishing up my 35 squares for the swap. I swore to myself that I would get them done early, but here I am 8 days before I have to send them and I still have 10 to finish. I have been working on some projects for my SP at crochetville. I made a Ghost Halloween decoration (link) and a turtle potholder. What else have I been crocheting?? Seems like there should be more. Oh, I have also been working on snowflake ornaments to give as gifts for Christmas. I really like how each one is different.

TTC-Trevor and I went to see my new doctor. I really like him a lot, although he won't return our calls. I had a HSG done and my tubes are clear. T had a SA done last week and we are hopefully going to get the results today. Depending on what those are, we are hopefully going to get a plan together for the coming months.

Family- Dave's soccer team is doing well. We had some heartbreakers there for awhile, but they have seemed to pull things together. He starts Conference playoffs tomorrow so that will be fun. I am really going to miss when soccer is over. There were some articles in the paper about him...so cute! I will have to post them here when I have a chance.

Friends- We went to Traverse's City last weekend for Alex's birthday (fellow resident's son). He turned 2! We stayed at the Wolf Lodge. It was a lot of fun. They have an indoor water park!!

I think thats about it :)
