chocake2:
I have decided that from now on I'd like to be rich enough to be irresponsible! I could be the next Paris  Hilton or Lindsey Lohan!!  Messy house? No Problem. The maid will deal with it. Car making an odd noise? Buy a new one. Boss is a jerk? Quit. Snow blocking the driveway? Fly to Burmuda.   ...Yeah. I could do that! No chores for me. No sir! Every minute of everyday is playtime!!  Anyone wanna join me??

I'm on board, CC!  Glad Sprout is feeling better and congrats on his first tooth!  CELEBRATION NOW C'MON!

Millbury, MA

Oh, the irony!! Jr came home from school today and happily announced "Guess What?! I Lost my tooth!" I told him his baby brother found it. LOL

Their big sis was majorly into fairies and unicorns when she started losing her teeth. I, on the other hand, was doing a lot of card making/rubber stamping. I had some really fine irredecent glitter in my craft stash when that very first tooth came out, so that ol' Tooth fairy sprinkled "fairy dust" on her  $ (it sticks really well with a spritz of hairspray)  an pillow. She's been leaving sparkles for  me to clean up ever since....  Yup. the boys think its cool,too.

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.

Yep!  I have a pair of those hair clippers...exclusively used for clipping hair in horses ears for horses shows.  Now a days those ears have lovely love hair and the clippers are probably rusting away in the barn or horse trailer.

Hope this post doesn't gum up the works - site has been extremely slow yesterday and today for me.  Just had to post these pictures of family.  I forgot my camera so had to get these from daughter and granddaughter-in-law's Facebook pages!  Got them yesterday.  Wish we had Rich's mother with us, but she couldn't (or we couldn't ) weather the long 125 mile trip.  With her the picture would be 5 generations.

Oldest daughter with her husband holding our greatgranddaughter, Her youngest and oldest sons - both in Airforce - holding their babies, and oldest greatgrandson saying "cheeeeese" in front of us.  I look like I was poured into the chair and I was tired enough to be a puddle on the deck!  Middle grandson was at college in Philadelphia - still in army National Guard.

Oldest greatgrandson is the blurr in the left corner!  He is always clowning during picture taking.  Little Lincoln on left is the "miracle baby" who was born a year ago in Germany - 6 weeks early with a knot in his umbilical cord and having the cord wrapped around his neck twice.  He must have been an acrobat before birth and is surely very active now - also very smart.  He weighs 18 pounds at one year and his cousin weighs 14 1/2 pounds at 3 months!  I couldn't believe how similar their weights were when I was holding them.

Taking his first steps - he quickly learned that he had to put one foot in front of the other or fall on his nose.  He was nearly running with this very quickly.  He is amazingly quick to learn something new.  I had just shown him how the green wheel spins.  Fortunately they kept me out of the picture!

 

End of a very long day.  We had 125 miles to travel while he slept!  Hope this posts now.  It has taken way too long for the pictures to show up, so maybe this won't post - but here goes - - -

MARSHA, what a lovely looking family you have, God Bless them all.  Lincoln is so sweet looking, don't worry he'll catch up in weight and height before you know it.  I love that "miracles" happen.

Thanks, Marie and everyone else, for the comments on our family.

We don't worry about Lincoln"s size.  This is normal size for most of our family - My daughter was 17 lbs at 1 year and walking at 11 months and our youngest son was 17 lbs at one and walking at 9 months.  He was so short, that he had to look UNDER toe top bar of the playpen when he was standing.  My brother was 5 feet when he graduated from highschool then grew 1 foot that summer!  Rich's grandfather was barely 5 feet his grandmother 4 feet.  Lincoln's mother is very tiny - about to my chin - and his father was very tiny until he was a senior in highschool.  Now he is nearly 6 foot.  How we ended up with a 6 foot 4 inch grandson (the one in Philadelphia) is a mystery.  My mother had a 6 foot sister, though, so maybe that is where it came from!  Our 2 youngest grandsons (16 and 17) are now over 6 feet but were tiny as youngsters.

Marsha, you have a beautiful family. I love the last one, the end of day, how precious.

Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love

Just a quick report of our QCA "party" in Spokane...LOl!  As it turned out, it pretty much was limited to a nice lunch with 2 diet pepsi's and 2 waters, with 2 (to remain nameless) still needing to get more shopping in, one needing to get on the road and me needing to get back to the workshop and then on the road.  But as promised, here are a few pictures:

First, the four of us:  myself, Gini, Jacey, and Patti  (at the Quilting Bee store in Spokane)

We had a great lunch, with lots of visiting and hugs all around!

Next, the Class Room with over 20 Bernina 830's merrily embroidering away:  (it was impressive) (usually there were more people around - don't know where everyone was when I took this pic...lol!)

 

My machine, stitching out the larger center motif for the quilt we were working on:

When I get unpacked and organized, I will post more pictures on my blog and let you know.  There are some beautiful quilts that the instructor (Claudia Dinnell) brought  and some done by her former students.  If anyone has a chance to take a machine embroidery class from her, I would highly recommend it!  She has the patience of Job! Her designs, placement methods, and tips are extremely well thought out and helpful.  Even very experienced embroiderers (machine) will learn something new from her.)
