wobbowee teef

Our little guy last night, 1 month from being 5 lost his first tooth. I can't believe he is losing teeth already! It just seems like yesterday those little bottom teeth were starting to poke up through his gums.....Here he is, so proud holding up his "toof".

I LOVE this picture, so excited! He called Grandma and Grandpa to tell them the news!!!

I will be registering this little guy for kindergarten (KINDERGARTEN!?!?!?) next month. I can't believe that either. I am speechless about him going to school, and believe me, I am not speechless very often. I know people tell me time flies but it really has with this little dude. He has been my little buddy all these years, me and him while daddy is at work and big sister has been in school....2 days a week it is just he and I, no pre-k for those days, just hanging with dear ol mom, or MUDDER as he calls me, or Grandmudder sometimes too....don't husband's "term of endearment" for me is family calls me do some of my friends, but really I like it. :)

A Queen sized finish

Last year (February 8th) was my parents 40th Wedding Anniversary. In 2008 I joined a block of the month club and ended up using those blocks to put together this quilt for my parents. I was at a loss of what to do to tie them all together (hmmm word to the wise, spend the money and buy the finishing kit next time, duh!) Because there were so many stars and points in the blocks I made a big ol' Ohio Star for the center, framed all the blocks, then sashed all the blocks and this is what I came up with. It still drives me crazy that after measuring, adding, subtracting, all of the things I don't like in quilting (yet another reason I don't make patterns, I buy them!) I set 2 of the rows a bit off, uhg.......

But I don't think my parents cared. :) (or noticed for that matter!)

Happy 41st Anniversary Mom and Dad, enjoy your Queen sized quilt, I am never making one that big again. :) Love your daughter :)
