Friday Home from vacation

Well just a quick note to let everyone know what an absolutely great time I had! I spent three weeks visiting with my daughter, son in law and four wonderfull grandkids! Donald the oldest is growing by leaps and bounds, Kloe Has decided to become a writter, kendra seems to be interested in cheerleading and all those girly activities. And last but no least casey is just adorable. she is not growing very fast and is still just a little thing but she is soooooooo cute. She has the cutest personalitly. I think she has everyone in the family wrapped around her little finger including her grandma! I miss all of them already!

Today I had a chance to unpack and much too my dismay several of the things that I had bought were broken. luckily hubby is good with a glue bottle and went to repairing them for me right away. Kerrie and I hit yard sales and an auction of her father in laws so you knowwwwww that I wound up buying a third suitcase to bring home with me. I had already packed my larger suitcase with things for the kids thinking that it would be the empty one to come back with me but by the time I finished going to yard sales, (did I mention they have the neatest yard sales?) and the auction , not too mention the fabric stores and quilt shops I really haddddddd to buy the third suitcase. Now I am trying to cram everything into my little sewing room which is shrinking day by day.

After I unpacked I sat down to open the package from my dear swap partner in the friendship swap that I spoke of in an earlier post. I was abasolutlely amazed at what she sent me. she was soooooooooooo creative not only in her stitching but also in her packaging. she did the most adorable wrappings. It felt like christmas going through all of them. She came up with the cutest things to spell out friendship and she made me the most amazinggggggggg doll! I wish I had such talent! I am going to call her deliahla. she is up on my shelf where I can look at her every day. I am thinking that I may have to rearrange things so that I can have a shelf just for dolls. she is justtttttttttttt too cute!

Well it is pouring down rain here and before the lightening starts I think it might be a good idea to shut down the computer. take care untill we meet again.
