Rose colored afghan

I haven't added many sewing projects to this blog and that's odd since I do have so many pictures. It's a rose colored afghan and I won 1st place in the county fair the year I entered it. That's one of those things I decided not to save for a special day and have started giving stuff to the kids. My DD has this and as you can tell, it was made sometime before 2007. The lil angel was born Nov 2007.

Busy, busy weekend

Miss K and her older sister, the singer.
This past weekend was extremely busy. The weather was just gorgeous (70 degrees) on Saturday so we worked in the yard - cleaning, getting up a tree that was cut down, and spreading pine straw on the flower beds. The yard always looks much nicer with fresh pinestraw.

Sunday was nice. We had "Pac the Pew" at church. DH's parents came from out of town so we all had lunch at our house after the service. (Our only buffet restaurant, Ryans, has closed). My parents, DH's parents and 1 grandchild. Before we got finished with the meal, the other grown GC, came by to see us. Miss K spent Sat night with us, went to church and helped with lunch. She is 9 yrs old - she set the table, prepared drinks, and helped with "greeting our guests". If I'm cooking for a small group and we all are able to sit at the same table, I enjoy setting a pretty table. She got a chance to offer tea in a "fancy" pitcher instead of the old family tea jug. You know, we Southerners love our sweet tea. She's quite a helper and loves to watch the cooking shows. Maybe she'll learn gourmet cooking and I won't have to cook!! We had ham, mashed potatoes, (with gravy, of course) black eyed peas, biscuits, berry cobbler and ice cream for dessert. Lil Princess and her parents came in after lunch, just in time for ice cream.

Motorsports Complex Update

Since we're a "racing" family, we're all interested in the new Motorsports Complex.
All of the above cars belong to my DH and DS..they don't drive, one of the GS does.

The old irrigation in the fields are being removed. They should be breaking ground soon, lots of digging to do - banking the roadcourse, traffic lanes, dragstrip lanes and garages. I still think it would be nice to have one of the new condos being built. Just think, with a pair of binoculars, I could see Tont Stewart as much as I wanted !!! (An old lady being silly.)

Sunshiny Days

My DH with DD as she played the Easter Bunny at church. These were taken about 4 years ago and DH and I still pretty much look the same -- OLD.!!

I'm probably pushing the Easter season a little but looking at all the piccies, these are among my favorites, of the thousands that are on the computer or in boxes and totes. (My children are going to have so much fun looking and sorting through my "stuff" when my "time" comes).

My children for putting up with this old lady
