The progress of Katie Turtle..............slow as it may be

My batteries are still charging. They boast on the package that they will charge in ten minutes! No dice! They are still charging. I was going to take some pictures of the process of this project. Instead I figured I would just scan it and that will just have to do for now. Time to turn in for the night.

Super Sunday

Today was so nice. Church was awesome, all the kids cooperated. I only had to leave class once to feed the baby and then she fell asleep. Came home and took a tiny nap with the girls. Sloan has been oh so helpful and the girls just played and played a grand game of hide and go seek. Zoe only knows how to count to three and that gave her an unfair advantage, but Sloan didn't seem to mind. The house was seriously filled with giggles almost the whole evening. When the giggles turned to joyous screams I had my fill. Mean mommy came out and stopped the fun. I know I'm terrible huh? Dean has been working all day on the cabinets for the side job he has. The lady he's making them for just asked if he could make some more cabs for her downstairs. We are so blessed to have this work coming his way. The economy is so iffy and we have a lot of friends who are out of work or taking pay cuts. Considering the state of things these days we feel very fortunate.
I am working on Katie turtle and hope to have her finished by tonight or tomorrow afternoon. Then I will be starting on the mammoth canvas that is taking up almost one whole wall of the living room. It will be for the JDRF auction. I am hoping to have that done by the weekend if I can get in a couple nights of solid painting time.
The little ones are in bed, Sloan is in the tub and Dean is cleaning up the outside work area for the day. It is time for me to get to work on the ol' art. My batteries lost juice so they are recharging at the moment. Look for some more pics tomorrow. Until then sleep well all.
