All Kelli. All Week

This is because of Amara.  She is the one that forces me to celebrate my birthday all week.
It started at Church when she brought me my birthday candy bar.  And thus begins the Week of Kelli.
So, here are some things about me...
I made this quilt last month.  It has quotes and well wishes on the white blocks for a family in our ward that lost their 18 year old daughter last October to a lingering illness.  

 This is the other quilt that I finally finished.
I started it last summer.  I had planned on hanging it on the wall in St. George.
But, I like it a lot.  And it looks good on Cole's bed.
So, it might not make it to St. George for a while.
No more quilting from me for a sewing machine is in the shop for cleaning and maintenance.  And will not be done for 3 weeks.  And in 3 weeks I plan on being outside doing yardwork.  Not inside sewing.

Poor kid, we totally had him convinced that we had forgotten his birthday.
He might need therapy...

Just wanted to record a few of the Cole -isms...
Cole loves to snuggle.  And I love to snuggle with Cole.  Especially when Rick is at work late at night.
One night I couldn't snuggle with him so he asked, "Is Summer available?"

A few days ago Cole asked me if I have always been the oldest in my family or if someone else was the oldest.

Said in a Mexican Restaurant in St. George in January..."It's like people walking up into your mouth."
(Maybe you had to be there to see the actions, but we couldn't stop laughing)

"I just burped out air."

"When I'm old like dad, well young, but still old."

"I just love Christmas songs. They're so jolly.  Whatever that means."

"When the zombies come I'm just gonna go up and yak at them.  Then if I don't have a gun, I'll just punch them."
