Kindle cover {Foto Friday}

Today, while the kids were sleeping… well Noah was napping Abby was awake… and in between visits to the candy bowl (this is why I hate having chocolate/candy in the house!), I decided to finally sew a cover for my precious Kindle. I seriously love that thing and have been reading so much more since Ray gave it to me as an early birthday gift a few week ago. I saw a tutorial for a Kindle cover on Chica and Jo, but didn’t like how it opened to the top. I wanted to make one that opened up like a book, so I used that tutorial as inspiration and modified it to fit my needs… and I am sooooo happy with the way it turned out!

VFor the past week, almost two, we’ve been battling whatever bug has decided the infiltrate the Midwest. It started out with some coughing, then morphed to sinus pressure/runny noses (and in Noah’s case a double ear infection) and now is changing again to a deeper, more throaty cough along with the sinus pressure/runny nose crud. Throw in a few fevers here and there and we really are a hot mess of a family right now.

Yesterday (well today, since I’m writing and posting this already on Thursday) was the start of the 2010/2011 football season. To celebrate the day that my husband believes should be a holiday, I dragged my sick butt off of the couch and attempted to make something that I had never made before… something that Chicago is famous for… something that we love to eat… stuffed pizza.

This giraffe was given to us by a friend of the family… who just happens to be my former 9th grade English teacher!! She loves giraffes and bought this one for Noah… I know that I have a picture of him trying to eat it posted on here somewhere!

Anyway… Abby decided to play with it one day… which meant that I also let her play with it while she was in her swing. A few minutes later I found the two of them like this…

Over the past few weeks, Ray has spent time demolishing what used to be our guest/Noah’s bathroom. I’m glad that he has been doing it, because I would not have wanted to have to pull out every single one of these bad boys…
