Garrett's Quilt

Garrett needed a quilt for his twin bed so I whipped this one up for his birthday. Lost of scraps but it should be fun for a 4 year old to sleep under !I quilted little cars into it...
It was lots of fun to make this one for you Garrett !

Fun eats and play on the toys and then we needed some ice cream to top it off , so swirl it saw us too ! Nice break in the day for me to see such sweet smiling faces ! And a birthday boy besides ! I hope you have fun being 4 Garrett !

What a great way to start the day !

Good Morning Bode ! I had the pleasure of getting to go over to Chris and MB's early one morning, I had the wee hours free before I started on the clock at my sewing machine so I went over to spend some morning hours with Bode ! 6:30 AM I arrived and he's wide awake so he and I had a couple hours of fun time this morning while Mommy and Daddy got another hour or so of sleep ! Before I left he decided it was time to sleep, what a great way to start the day rocking little Bode Baby 4 weeks old !

Fun Evening at Amy's

Amy invited us down to enjoy an early dinner and a squirt gun war this past weekend with them. Here is Ken arriving "fully loaded"....We had a yummy dinner they made, quiche and cinnamon rolls and I brought a salad. The cinnamon rolls were to die for , she got the recipe from Best bites blog. I think we all just wanted to chow down on the cinnamon rolls, forget the salad ! Then the action begins... here's a blurry shot of all three little boys... even Ethan gets the hang of a fun squirt gun !
Just who do you think is having the most fun here, the little boys or the BIG BOYS !
Sure was a fun end to the weekend, thanks Amy and Chris for having us over !

An Evening with Bode

Bode got to come over for the evening last night to play with Papa and I ! What fun was that. What a long day at work watching the clock so I could get home ! Sorry for the sideways view, turned it twice and it still loads sideways ! Bode looks so little here with Papa's hand on his chest !
He took his first bottle like a champ ! Downed 3 oz. like nothing ! What fun to rock a baby !
Here are Chris and MB back to get their little Bode bear, they had a nice dinner out but we had more fun !
Here are 2 videos just for fun, I think in the one now at 3 1/2 months there is a bit of a coo on the way ! Bode will have alot to say pretty soon ! Thanks for coming over Bode !

Bode came for dinner

Chris and MB came over tonight to have dinner with us. It was fun to cook for them ! I made dinner, also some white chili for them to take home and the leftovers from dinner so they should be set for a few days.
Papa and Bode having a chat !
Here is MB and her little son !

More on the quarters

Several of you have commented or emailed that you'll join the hunt of the missing quarters. I thought the picture would show it better but here is a list.....
Pennsylvania mint - Iowa, Guam, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Northern Mariana Islands, Virgin Islands,Washington Obverse, fifty state obverse.
Denver Mint - Guam, Northern Marinara Islands, Virgin Islands, Washington Obverse, fifty state obverse
And on a side note the hammer was required as the "tap in place" tool. These folders hold the quarters in very tight so if you are in construction that means you use a hammer !

Sunday, July 18, 2010


We've been collecting the state quarters for a long time now and the holder we used to keep them in got ruined so for Fathers Day Ken got new holders to organize them . This weekend he started placing them in their appropriate spots.One holder is for ones struck in the Denver mint and the other has the P for the Pennsylvania mint on them. It seemed to involve a hammer too !!!! :-) Only a few are missing. It is harder for us to find the Pennsylvania mint ones here in the west. He got holders for the new "America the Beautiful" quarters that have started this year, commemorating all the National Parks. I have yet to see one tho but we are gonna keep watching !

We had fun swimming and eating strawberries by the pool !So Amy left for some errands and the real fun begins !!!! We made a fort ! actually 2 forts, see how the tube goes from one fort to the next ! Thank goodness we don't run out of quilts !
Here is Ethan in the secret entrance !!!
So we started our lunch before Mommy got back so it'd be ready....PIZZA ! Hey Jamie we tried your new crusts ! They were good !
Ethan got in on the toppings of ham and pineapple... Life is good !
Here are 2 videos of 2 fish in the water ! Anyone for pizza and a swim? We sure had fun !

What a great Grammy Day !

Unbeknownst to me I was in for a great Grammy day today. I had planned to take some bagels to Chris and MB so I could see Bode early this morning. They were off to dr. appts. but were welcoming the help with him while they got ready. I arrived and had some great time to play with him all wide eyed and ready for the day ! I even got to give him a sponge bath, how fun was that ! MB was anxious to have help and ideas on what and how to do things ! I had a blast ! He went off with Mommy and Daddy to the dr. ( later we found he'd gained 6 oz. this week...right on target ) and I went on to Walmart where I ran in to these 3 cute munchkins !
They had planned on coming over later for swim and dinner and trip pictures, but Aiden came up with the idea of coming home with me......so after they were so excited to see me after this last month of being gone how could I refuse ( I got the best hugs in fact ! Ethan just hugged me for 10 minutes ) So away we went, Mommy went on her way to do her errands and the 3 boys and I came home. We went swimming, had lunch, played, had rest time and made dinner, went swimming again when Papa and Mommy showed up and then had dinner and pictures from their trip when their Daddy got here. What fun it was to see all the great places they went. They went home exhausted and asking what day they can come swimming again. Aiden starts school again in a couple weeks so hope it's soon ! Here's a darling little video of Bode I took today of all his little sounds at 2 weeks old. hope it works ! This exhausted Grammy is heading to bed! I loved my day with all my Boys !!!! !

July Thornberrie quilt meeting

We had our July meeting today at a local store using their classroom. Not to many came but we had lots to catch up on and visit about. Lorene finished piecing her Irish chain....those are 1 inch squares ! It's still getting another border and appliques in the corners. It's so pretty, on my to do list . Sue was there, she made this cute little top, the center is embroidered. Denise came too, she was prepping some P3 applique. I worked on blocks for class samples to teach.
This amazing top was done by sue, each piece is different, it was so pretty.
what a great scrap quilt !
We missed the rest of you girls and will see you next month !

Great time with Friends !

We enjoyed a fun day this week and were able to Celebrate another birthday. Linda was the honored guest and she wanted a fun sewing day and lunch. So we had fun admiring Denise's quilt tops she'd made to donate. Judy hosted us and we had a great time. Linda had this neat block of the month that she had finished piecing the top on.
We had a wonderful lunch, I made 2 salads, Denise made these awesome sandwiches that had Brie cheese and thinly sliced apples with a bit of spicey mustard ! MMMMMM they were wonderful !
There was a bit of this ! Judy was in charge of the drinks and she made these great pull apart rolls to enjoy when we arrived.

Here's the birthday girl Linda !
Denise finished this beauty ! It was all appliqu├ęd and had great quilting in curves on it.
Denise finished this pretty table mat too, loved it !
Angel is officially a quilt dog now that she's laying on the blocks. Judy was laying out these pretty leaf blocks and of course if you are a quilt dog or cat, that is where you lay !
So here we are, my camera was not being nice for this picture. But we sure had fun. It was great to catch up as we'd had alot of excitment in each of our lives, 2 babies born, trips traveled, a daughters engagement, another home from London and school, a revamped arrangement at Judy's house. Friends are just the best !
