Happy 18th Birthday to Anna!

It's hard to believe half my babies are now adults. Time sure does fly. I had fun going through my pictures for this birthday post.

Most of Anna's pictures show her hugging or snuggling someone. Here she is with darling Abigail at our family reunion two summers ago.

I remember this picture taken years ago when she comforted Ruthie to sleep.

Her bunny.

Her first baby, Ranger the cat.

Baby Khy...whom we all wanted to hold!

Anna has been busy sewing/quilting. Here are a few of her projects.











The patterns are from a magazine that comes out once a year called 100 Quilt Blocks. This is from the year 2010 issue. I love them all!

Lizzie and Maggie got up bright and early to fix a special birthday breakfast for Anna.

These are blueberry/chocolate and strawberry crepes. No, not healthy, just delicious.


I had to laugh when I saw the mess in the kitchen! There's a rule around here that says the better the food...the worse the kitchen. Fortunately it didn't take long to clean up. Ruthie is making the birthday dinner...spaghetti, garlic bread and salad. Yummy!

My children have been taking a class called Appalachian Clogging. They love it.

Last Saturday, Lizzie and Maggie joined the "Fifty and Older Class" for their demonstration on clogging. The class is sponsored by the Parks and Rec, and lasts for 6 weeks. We bought their special shoes on eBay...which is harder than it sounds. When the shoes came, some fit tight and some fit lose, so they got switched around until everyone got a pair. Whew!

Even my hubby, Mike, is getting into clogging! The teacher sent home this video...and Mike got so excited after watching it that he wants to take us to a clogging event. I'm ready!


Well, we finally got some much-needed rain in the form of some torrential downpours. We've been under tornado watch/warning for most of today.


We finally got our potatoes planted yesterday. Yes, we're late...we always are...and we always produce the best potatoes! We planted 100 lbs of Yukons, and 25 lbs of Russian Banana fingerlings. Today's rain is perfect timing!

Many blessings ~ Kathie
