Big Day, Big Day!

My sis
and my dad are bugging me for pictures.
I don't have too many,
that's why we hired a photographer, right? 
Here are a few from today.

His little cheeks are starting to freeze.
My little guy makes laugh in these next two.
These are all of the 'brothers'.

He did so well.
We had a little talk earlier this week about
 what would be happening and how he should act.
He was great. 
Dare I say - pretty awesome.
(Granted, his sister was in charge of him today. 
But what I saw and did NOT hear from him was pretty awesome.)
Didn't even have to bribe him. 
We'll have another talk before
 the reception comes.
Man, I love these kids.
I love my husband too.
And I love the family.
It was a wonderful day.
They are so happy.
And we're excited for them
and their new life in 2014!
Happy New Year!

Wedding Eve

Tomorrow is the big day!
My oldest daughter is getting married.
This day has been coming for months
and it's finally here.

He's a keeper.  So is she.
I think they are a perfect match
and will find much happiness
and success
A couple of months ago,
I was teary about my daughter getting married
and a friend said to me,
"Isn't it like -- wow, great you're gaining a new member of the family?"
I said, "No, Not at all. I'm losing my daughter."
But with a little time, it is all good. 
I can do this :).  I can let go.
It is time that she moves on,
and that things change.
And yes now, it is like -
"Wow!  We have a new member of the family!" 
He's adorable. 
He's been wearing his wedding ring for two weeks.

A Girl After My Own Heart.....

My daughter has always loved serving other people. 
So when it came time to put together a project for her 
FCCLA club at school....a chapter 
service project is what
appealed to her. 

It's a 3 part plan.  
The first thing she did was organize 
thank you notes to servicemen through 

She collected over 400 notes.  
They were so sweet from kids grades 5 - 12. 

She wanted to focus on teen girls for her second project.  
Teenagers are hard to buy for at Christmas time 
and often become overlooked.  
So with the help of her FCCLA 
group they made t-shirt fashion scarves
 for several different agencies to pass out in 
stockings or give to families for Christmas. 

They turned out so cute and we had the 
rewarding experience of giving them out yesterday.  
They will be used to fill Angel Tree requests and help 
Grandparents raising Grandchildren. 

I can't think of a better activity to work on with my daughter at this time of year.

to get involved and help start something in your church and/or community.

Zig Zag

I have the opportunity to work with 
four wonderful ladies at Church. 
We spend a lot of time together and 
they do so much for me to make my work load lighter. 
So what better way to say Thank you 
and Merry Christmas??
A Quilt. 

With my love of vintage sheets
 I thought this would be a great way to show them off. 

I chose to do lap quilt size.  
It's 50" x 72".
Each one is a little different as to how 
much sheet was on top and bottom. 

There are 30" of chevrons and then you 
can break up the other 42" any way you want. 

I've written up some instructions for you.  
They assume you know how to 
rotary cut and piece. 
The instructions are also written so you 
can just buy yardage that will work instead of sheets.

Merry Christmas to you and yours!!

Happy Holidays!!


I do love this time of year.
The shopping, the snow, the decorating,
the memories of each and every ornament, family
and reflecting on the birth of our Savior.
I'm trying to make all of that happen,
plus there's a wedding coming very soon.
"I'm working on it."
That's my go-to phrase.
"I'm working on it."

I hope to show you some of the wedding prep soon.
There's a 7 foot Eiffel Tower sitting right here beside me.
 My husband has a week more of being on crutches. 
Maybe he'll be kind of back to normal in a week?? :)  Right?
