Catching Up

Hello out there!! Long time no post. Like that's unusual. :) Anywhooo, it's Sunday afternoon and Nathan is fast asleep, so I finally have time for a catch-up post. Last weekend Mom and Chuck and Nathan and I went to Oklahoma to visit my brother, Shawn, and his family. I couldn't believe how much his kids have grown!! It really has been a long time since I've seen them. This was the first time they've gotten to meet Nathan, too. Sadly, I have very few photos due to some mostly-dead camera batteries. I have to get some from Mom's camera to post and/or scrap. I do have one cute one of Nathan and Uncle Shawn, though.

Last night the family all met at my Aunt's for dinner to celebrate Granny Ruth's birthday. I had to work, so Mom took Nathan with her. I got there just after he fell asleep. Apparently he'd fought it long and hard. He wouldn't let anyone hold him, because that might make him fall asleep, but he was too sleepy to let them put him down, either. This led to the very peculiar sleeping position he was in when I arrived. I just had to document this:

He stayed like that until his Grandma's feet got too tired to hold him. What a goofy kid! (Disclaimer: Please forgive the little chocolate mustache. Granny Ruth shared a little devil's food icing with him before he konked out.)

Today after church we had our monthly potluck dinner, and after that, we tied fleece blankets for Project Linus. It's a really great charity that provides handmade blankets to children who are ill or have been traumatized in some way. It's the second time we've participated in this mission project. Today we made 20 blankets in an hour. Project Linus takes any kind of handmade blankets including knitted, crocheted, quilted, or whatever. We made the very simple no-sew tied fleece blankets like the one Nathan is enjoying here:

I've actually gotten partially caught up with my scrapping, too. I fell way way way behind while I was working on Mom's birthday party. Here are a couple of pages I've done recently. As always, you can click the photos for larger images, or visit my gallery link in the sidebar to see them at Designs In Digital.

Well, I believe I've covered all of the major happenings in our lives of late. I'm sure you all feel fascinated and enriched now for having read it. Glad I could be of service. lol

See ya next time!
