VBS Week Now Complete

We attend a smaller church that my husband's family has attended for oh...

about half a century.

We finished with VBS a few weeks ago and it is always so cool to see such a large group of kids having fun.

Everybody (adults to the pre-K classes) sported staches one night.  

All the giggles coming from the young children's classes was just precious.

We had 9 professions of faith and that included one adult.


And that is what the congregation shouts when they are presented to the church.

And...who knows...maybe that's what God's sayin' too.

It's Almost Time & I'm Ready!

We are heading to Holden Beach, NC soon. Very soon.

I've never seen the ocean and neither has my Hunny or kids.

It's going to be an adventure to get there.

An 18 hour adventure.

But we're ready!

Scrappy Camera Case

This is my scrappy camera case I threw together last weekend.

It needed some personalization so then I appliqued my initial on it and made it mine. All mine.

No pattern was used.  I just "winged" it. 

Just...uh....don't pay any attention to the weeds around our okra plants.

I'm not.


Friday Night Sew-In

It's time for Friday Night Sew-In on the 18th.

This will be my first and I'm so excited!

And it's just what I needed to get my table topper ready to take with me on vacation.

I'm going to practice hand quilting it while I'm gone.

My Baby's 17th Birthday

Today is my baby's 17th birthday.

He was born 17 years ago today and it was Memorial Day the day he was born too.

My husband's aunt and cousins, from Oklahoma, were down the street staying with my husband's grandma for the three day weekend.

I woke in the morning thinking that I was in labor but didn't have the tell tale signs.

Just a little dribbling and no contractions.

Later that morning my husband was outside mowing grass.

And his grandma called wanting to know when we would be down.

I told her during the conversation that I thought my water had broke.

She told the rest of the family that was there.

Mike, my husband's cousin, was willing to come over and help...


Needless to say, we did go to the hospital and at 12:05 a.m. May 31, 1993, we had a beautiful 8 lb. 10 oz. baby boy,  Ryan Christopher.

I love, love, love my baby.

And he loves his Mommy.
