Oh what a beautiful morning!

There was a little song my mom often sang that went:
Oh what a beautiful morning,
Oh what a beautiful day.
I've got a wonderful feeling
Everything's going my way.
And that's how I feel right about now. I didn't wake up until 7:15! That means I slept through Matt's alarm going off at least 4 times. That NEVER happens! I don't know how long Dean had been awake (he's still been working on the time change and will usually wake up between 5:45-6:30. I just don't go in to him until 6:30 at the earliest.) because he was sitting up awake in his crib just hanging out!

He was not fussy at all this morning.
He had a good nursing session (20 min. after we finished nursing I was getting dressed into exercise clothes. When he saw the boobs he just had to have another "ink"! I had to laugh. Guess it's about time to wean when he can ask for it...)
He ate his 1/2 of a banana and piece of corn bread for breakfast like a champ.
We finally got the tires on the jogging stroller aired up.
We went jogging (without jackets) on this Bea-U-tiful morning of 67*.
He didn't complain once while we were out.
He played well when we got home.
He went down for his nap effortlessly.

Who knows what the rest of the day holds, but the outlook is good.

Also, I am nearly done with my count down to Christmas quilt hangings and I can't wait to post the final product. I have more projects I'm itching to start. Like fabric Christmas tree ornaments (so Dean can take them off the tree without me worrying about anything breaking), and a vintage fabric gift. I also need to make cards sometime, but I just haven't been in a paper mode recently.

Oh, and I'm going to try a new way of making a tag blanket. Instead of using two flannel pieces and batting, I'm going to use a flannel panel and fleece. That will eliminate the need for batting and "tie stitches". I'll tell you how it goes.

It's always nice to get the day off to a good start, isn't it? :)

When we were little my mom made a bunch of fabric ornaments so the tree was kid-safe. She still has some of them and they are really cute. She had some little gingerbread boys she'd made of brown corduroy trimmed with rickrack that are just adorable. I think having kid-friendly ornaments is a great idea.

I want to see those count down to christmas hangings!!!! I want you sell them? I see them in the stores, but I am picky and dont want to pay 20 bucks for something I am not in love with.

We're going for kid-friendly ornaments as well - some of them I got are home-baked gingerbread ones with fabric ties.

And the little song your mom sang came from Oklahoma the musical. Which reminds of the title song "Oooooooh-klahoma" - which always reminds of the Sesame Street skit where they went through A-klahoma, E-klahoma, and I-klahoma before getting it right. :)

I often sing that song in the morning as well. It's from Oklahoma!

Oh, and I was wondering if I may please use your blog in my Master's Thesis? I'm writing about the shift from journals to blogs in Mormon women's writings about motherhood.

I knew the song must be from a musical, but I don't think I've ever seen Oklahoma.

Danielle, thanks for commenting! Now I know where to find you. I don't/won't sell the hangings because I'd have to charge way too much. It's taken me almost a month to complete mine!

Sure Michemily. I'd feel honored.
