Maggie and Lizzie made some blueberry scones that were delicious. Didn't take long for them to disappear! She took one to her therapist.
The stain did come out a lot...but the fabric gave way. I like this quilt for two reasons...it is handstitched, and it is hand embroidered. Here are the flower blocks of which there are at least 3 of each pattern:
Allen was excited to find this cocoon outside on the porch. He brought it in and placed in on the windowsill, and the next morning we had a beautiful moth! God's creation is just so beautiful and amazing. Sarah is busy directing the church youth in our annual Patch the Pirate play. This year the play is called I-Land...a play that is no longer produced by Majesty Music. Our family joke is that everything is right on schedule...no one knows their lines!
Lizzie and Ruthie came with me to take Maggie to her Occupational Therapy appt today. Lizzie loves the therapist's dog, Zeenah. What a sweet dog!
My parents have rented out their Texas house, so Mom's home is full of a bunch of stuff from that home. Mom gave us back our Longhorn plaque...which we love! Thanks, Mom.
Last Friday, my family met some friends in Washington D.C., to visit the Smithsonian museums. My children had a blast! (Ruthie and I stayed home since the warm air triggers Ruthie's respiratory problems ~ the temps were in the 90s.) Ellen treated my family to a 3-D movie about Dinosaurs (at the museum)...and that was the most talked about part of the trip! I had fun listening to everyone's account of the day. I can't believe none of my children took cameras! Thanks, Ellen and Chris for inviting us along.
Mike was sharing with me about how Ellen and Chris saw a movie where the guy had a bucket list of everything he wanted to accomplish before the end of his life...so E&C came up with their own bucket list. Visiting the Smithsonian was on Ellen's list. Now we're all putting together our own bucket lists!
Our family has just learned of the death of Simba and Natalie's niece who was their flower girl. Shelby was 16 years old and all we know is that she was killed in a car accident an hour or so ago. We saw Shelby recently at Abigail's birthday party, and enjoyed watching her taking care of her younger siblings. We're praying for you, Simba and Natalie.
Many blessings ~ Kathie
