T-shirt Quilt

This is a quilt I made for my sister for her ex-husband. She had saved t-shirts from her son.  This quilt was the most difficult quilt ever. Nikki (my teacher) & I created a pattern as we went. There were many tears shed through out this but VERY rewarding in the end.  Yes, I would do it again.

The dogs

  Charlie all nice & comfy on the couch. He love to spread out.

Meet Charlie

This is Charlie. He is 7 wks old. Yes, he is our new baby.
He is a yellow lab.  He is a very good dog.
Jackie wasn't to sure about him at first but now they get along great.
I'm sure when he is older they will be best of friends.

Happy 20th Birthday Aron

Happy 20th Birthday Aron.

Where has the time gone? Sometimes it seems like it went by fast and other times it feels like it went by slow.

October 7th I felt just a wee little bit older knowing I have a son who is 20. Just seems strange to me.
We are very proud to have you as our son. We love you very much!

Update on life

We welcomed Eric & Emily to the world.This is my niece & nephew

Emily was 5.6

My first quilt

Our cat Liberty passed away

One happy Auntie with Eric & Emily

Diaper cakes I made for the shower

Aron came home for the 4th of July

There's so much to write I have no idea where to start. So much I should of posted. I have missed birthdays and visits home from Aron. Kind of hard to go back 7 months.


I wasn't really sure what to title this. I can't believe that it's been 7 months since I've posted anything. I've managed to miss birthdates, visits from Aron and much more.

Not sure what to blame it on. Busy life I guess. But I'm going to try and keep up on it cause I know a lot of you don't do facebook where most of my pictures are posted so I really need to keep this up for those of you who do read this.

So on that note, please forgive me for being M.I.A for so long. My goal is to post at least twice a month.

I am blessed

For some reason tonight I am feeling blessed

Blessed to be saved. To have Jesus Christ in my life.

Blessed to have a wonderful husband who loves me the way I am, for who I am. A husband who works hard to provide for his family.

Blessed to have Aron as my son. A Marine. Watching him start his life. Engaged. I could not be more blessed for the girl he has choosen.

Blessed to have Marcus as my son. A smart young man. Watching him choose his path in life.

Blessed to have Ryan as my son. A unique person. Watching him grow taller and learning new things.

Blessed to have Michael as my son. A young boy with a great personality. Watching him still being my baby for one more year.

I am blessed to have saved boys. All of them living for God. Decisions they made on their own.

Tonight I give God the glory for feeling his presence, for feeling blessed.
