My Blog List
Then got up Thursday morning and met some other moms and boys for a little going away party at Chuck E. Cheese.. one of A's school-mates is moving. :( Here they are "bear hugging". The four little musketeers. They have really bonded and become buddies, the four of them.
So now we are about to leave again tomorrow. This time to my in-laws. Just for the weekend, and on the way there, we will be stopping at a baby shower. Busy, busy so far. No time, unfortunately, for sewing yet, though. Although, it seems I'll have some baby things to make when I get a chance (a late gift for tomorrow's shower, and... ahem..Rebecca Lynne!) :o)
Teaming up with Rebecca, and in keeping with our joint resolution for a drama-free New Year, I made my first ever blog button!! Feel free to grab it over there in the sidebar and join us for a drama free 2012, and occasional posts on stress relieving things/drama busters. There is also a more blingy one a bit further down the sidebar. I couldn't have done it without the free tutorials out there and most of all, without Rebecca and her HTML smartness!!
Our new year had a couple of minor glitches but, all in all, kicked off VERY relaxed and drama free. Minus the two hour flight delay when we went to catch our flight home.. and a certain little boy suddenly doing the pee pee dance and telling me he had to go NOW, only to find five people waiting in line for the loo (I like British words).. two different times.. big thanks to a couple of sweet ladies for letting us cut the line--crises averted! And Austin throwing up upon landing. Oops, a little motion sick. But those are just minor hiccups in life.
He was a real trooper and napped most of the way home.
Remember his Christmas list?
He really was so happy to get his own toilet paper! hahaha Still mulling over ideas for a special holder for his personal paper! ;)
My Mom loved the bow-ties quilt and used it every night that we were there after opening it.
And I found some cute little crafty ornaments the day after Christmas--so fun to hit the sales with my Mom and SIL.
Looking forward to getting back into some sort of routine soon, and playing with some fabrics.. and these two beauties that came home with me. :o)
I was going to bring these home with me.. 9-patches sewn of scraps that my Mom and I have both sewn through the years. There are enough to make a queen, if not king, size quilt plus sashing fabric. I forgot them this time, though.
Oh well, I have enough to keep me busy this year! 2011 had its share of dramas, in all different forms, but my wish this year is that we all have a drama-free year. I suppose things will happen, plans will be changed, hard times may come, but I will be trying to stay focused on all things positive. Blogging has really helped me to do this, as I said before, and thank you all so much, again, for reading! And for taking a moment to comment, now and then. Wishing you love, blessings, and happiness in 2012!!
Missed you Kelli! So glad you are back home safely! Your poor little guy! Dealing with a bout of Food Poisoning while flying home from the Bahamas one time...I can relate to how he felt...it was AWFUL! I bet Buster was really glad to see you! Happy New Year!
Happy new year Kelli, I hope this year is all you hope for, I love the sunset shot, its gorgeous, as is the one of the boys hugging, thats precious! Will grab your button with both hands and plonk that on my blog, well done :) btw you look great in red tights !
My personal favorite British word/phrase is "loo roll", which seems especially appropriate given Austin's Christmas gift delight. The photo of all the boys hugging brings tears to my eyes. There are few things harder than helping your child deal with a good friend moving. Here's hoping you don't have to do it ever again!
