July BOM

I'm doing a BOM with my local quilt shop - and here is July's blocks.  Made with Thangles, I love the fabric they chose.  I just picked up my August block, so hopefully in a couple days I can show you that one too.  My first BOM quilt, and I'm enjoying myself :D

The King of Zucchinis

This monster zucchini came out of our garden - the only giant one we've got.  The rest of our zucchinis are predictably normal size.   I've got 4 batches of zucchini bread out of it, plus some leftover.  Think I'll try making some zucchini cheddar muffins! :D (btw, those are full size cucumbers in the picture.)

CSN stores Review time!

Sorry about the long wait for the review! First off, I’m 10 weeks pregnant. Soon I will be over the morning sickeness hump. Until then, I am a bit grumpy. Second, I had taken pictures with my mom’s camera and then forgot to ask for them, so I took my camera over to her house to take pictures (the toy is stored at Grandma and Grandpa’s house) and left my camera there for a week.  So, now I have pictures and a free moment and enough energy to write up this post.

I ordered from the MY First Choo Choo Train. It is part of the NKOK My First RC Series. 

I ordered it on a Thursday. The expected delivery date was one week. I received it two days early. How exciting to come home from work and have a big package with my name on it. Jesse and I opened up the box and his eyes lit up.  The first thing he did when I pulled it out of the box was say “Mine!” (We are working on manners, but he is still learning to talk :)

The first thing I noticed about the train is that it requires 1 9v and 4 aa batteries and it only included 2 aa.  I figured if you were going to include batteries, include them all.  So, off I ventured to target’s dollar section for some batteries.

Once we took it, with batteries, to my parent’s hard wood living room floor, Jesse fell in love.  He learned how to use, passed it around so others could use it and he could chase it, and of course laughed and enjoyed himself.  He had hours of fun chasing this toy around and now when we go over to Grandma and Grandpa’s house for Sunday dinners, that is the toy he wants me to bring out.  He is pretty rough with his toys right now, and this one has stood up to some abuse from him, but also from his two uncles that are 12 and 17.

Jesse loves his choo choo train.  Overall, it is a great toy. I think that it is funny that if you don’t turn it off, it reminds you every so often that it is still there and wants to be played with by making choo choo noises. We have to make sure it is turned off before leaving so it doesn’t drive my parents bonkers. :D

Thanks for a great quality product, great customer service, and a wonderful delivery time.
