Brian finally got his yearly review at work (only 2 weeks late). He now has vacation time, yipee, and is eligble for his company's 401K. We are finally at a place where we can start contributing. It is quite confusing though. I am hoping that the company's financial advisors will be able to point us in the right direction of investing our money iin todays economy.
The nice thing about the vacation is that since Brian was told he couldn't take a vacation in June if he wanted to work on the job at Shell, he will be able to take a little time off when Baby Girl comes. He will also be able to use vacation time for his hunting trip. YIPEE!!!
Looking forward to not having to worry about his week long hunting trip and where the money would come from with him not working. I think we will need to plan our Disneyland trip for the summer next year. Brian won't have vacation time left around the schools spring breaks time.
............well almost. Just one more step and two years after it was started and IT is DONE!!! What is it I am talking about?? Peyton's baby quilt. IT has sat for the last year and a half because all I had left to do was the binding. I HATE hand stitching and the binding is where I get stuck. I still have the second quilt of Casey's to finish because I need to handstitch the binding.
I told myself that I would have Peyton's done before his party on Sunday and I am finished. Just have to get some yarn and tie it off. I also have enough fabric leftover that I will be able to make him a matching pillowcase. So happy to be done. Now I can work on getting the rest of little girls blanket done. The top of her quilt is sewn together. Now I just have to get the batting and pick out material for the backing and binding. Maybe this one will be done before the baby is born or shortly after.

Here is the list I got Mom!! I will have a name contest posted sometime in July running until the baby is born, for obvious reasons. Winner will receive a $5 gift card to Starbucks. I will also run a contes the beginning of August for the Date, time and weight of baby. Winner will receive a $5 gift card to somewhere else. Don't know yet. I still have time. I might pick up a cute little prize instead. Haven't decided yet. So be thinking about names that we might have picked. I can tell you that it is not a top 10 name!!!
