Quite nicely, actually! In fact, when the 4th boy showed up, the other 3 started playing nicer together! They were supposed to leave at 3:00...one left at 4:30 and one left at 5:30. The other two never left! I think I've got about ten more years until that happens!
Due to MLK Day, both boys are home from school and DH is off work also! DH and I went grocery shopping and to the gym, and for the first time EVER both boys stayed home by themselves. Our oldest, 12, had just started staying home alone this year. Our youngest, 10, has never stayed home alone or with his brother. But surprisingly, they did so well, that we might actually be able to leave them alone a little bit! The problem is that the 12 year old likes to stay home ALL by himself, which would obviously not include a brother! :)
It's a long story, that I'll tell you some day, but Luke is fascinated with Canada and all things Canadian! Yesterday I stitched him up an itty bitty bear, toting a Canadian flag. I need to put it together, make some cording, stuff the thing, and hang it on his door.
Then I was reading Mylene's blog and saw that she stitched this freebie! Perfect for Valentine's day! And such a quick stitch, that I started it yesterday! Hope to finish it completely tonight. Won't cording with the green and pink together be pretty?
Last, but not least, I really want some of these cute little tags. My stitchy friend gave me some great ones that have one word on them: faith, believe, love I think! I need to look at them more closely, obviously! Sorry, stitchy friend! But I'd love to have some "made with love" ones! I can't seem to find them anywhere around here. Anybody know where I can get them?
Tomorrow, after the gym, I'm calling an "Selfish Sara day"! I'm sending DH to work, kids to school, and I'm going to sit, stitch and maybe even watch a movie! That's the plan, let's see if it works! I'll post some pictures tomorrow!
