late nights

i haven't had time for much blogging this week.  i've been getting ready for emily's bday party on saturday.  cleaning up the house has been one of my goals.  however, david is following me around, taking toys back out, dropping and smashing gold fish, etc, etc.  therefore,  the "good cleaning" will probably come tomorrow night(after little messers are in bed)...in between making chicken parm and baking cakes.  oh, and did i mention that i haven't even finished her birthday gift yet?!  yes, her bday was monday.  i figured she is still young enough to not realize that mommy and daddy should be giving her something to open on this day.(next year, on the other hand, i will have to be finished ON TIME!)  i've been staying up way passed my bed time watching youtube videos of quilting.  i've been very nervous to make this. screwing it up is not an option!!!  i'm surprised there aren't grooves worn into the floor where i'm rolling the computer chair from the desk to my work area!  i'm happy to say that i should be finished tonight!!  just have to cut and sew the binding.  why didn't i just buy some?!  actually--there may be a trip to walmart after hubs and i go to emily's teacher confrence @ school tonight!  this particular walmart, though, has a pretty crappy crafting section...so i'm not sure i want to waste the time or the gas to drive there!   any hoo, mr. hurricane is awake and i still have lots to do! (at least my mom is coming up today, i should be able to get the bathroom cleaned!)

here is a sneak peak @ emily's *almost*finished gift:
