Momma moose and baby moose are makeing me mad ! Plus a teaser..

Ok momma moose I have had about enough of you and your baby hanging out on my front porch.. It's 6 :20 and I am driving up to my drive way when i see miss Momma moose and her baby licking the snow off Kadies truck. I Thought great how am I going to drive in my driveway and get in to the grange. So I just sat there for 15 minutes and thought Geez Momma are you going to move any time soon? I then thought I will just open the garage and it will scare them. It did scare the baby just a little bit but not Momma. I then closed the garage door so mama would not get any big ideas and go inside. Momma then started to walk up my front stairs I thought you gotta be kidding me. Nope.. There she was on the first 2 stairs liking the snow off the rails. This lasted about 10 minutes she got done and went to the edge of my yard. I thought here is my chance to quickly get in my garage. I am telling you I was scared to death. I was afraid I might spoke her and that she might charge my car. Nope she just stood there and watched me go inside. It was a 15 minutes to 7 at this point and Mylissa and Robbie where needing to start off for the bus stop. I told them they would have to go out the back if the moose are still in the yard. Yep they were still there. Then at 8:15 when baby M was dropped off They were still smack in the middle of my front yard. (Remember it's still totally dark out side.) Baby M's Dad did not even see the moose until I said are the moose still in the yard. He looked and said holly crap thats a momma and her calf and they are very close. I said yep.. It's been like this all morning. Then at 8:45 when Madie and Garrett go to school they were at the forest edge. So they were able to leave out the front door. Here it is at 9:15 and you guessed it they are still in my yard. Here it is barley dawn (I took this with the flash) and they are still hanging out in my yard..
Oh how I love Alaska...
A couple post ago I said I was going to make a fancy apron to give away. I still am so do you want a peek of the fabric?
Ok so not the best pic but you get the jest plus There are some sparkly stuff and the black sateen that I left out. So what do you think?

I love the fabric! It's going to beautiful. Can't wait to see it!

I know the moose can be really dangerous, but how fascinating they came for morning tea?! I mean where else but Alaska do you get to see that awesomeness?!

I've got chickens and the neighbors' dogs. Not even a deer. lol.

I don't believe I've ever actually seen a real live moose...none of those in the SC lowcountry.

I think it would be cool to see the moose, even if they are dangerous. I think I'd be trying to get the perfect picture and not worry about the danger. ;)

The fabric looks great. looking forward to seeing how it all turns out.
