First - Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends out there!  I hope you enjoy your day/days/weekend with your family and friends!

Why ‘Quickly’ you may wonder…

Well it’s because the little boy (16 mo. old grandson) may just wake up from his nap… which is what he does every time I try to do something… anything… everything… which is why my house is a wreck… LOL

But he has redeeming qualities… after he woke at 4:30 this morning for a dry diaper – he didn’t want to go back to his bed so I scooped him up and he snuggled in with me and fell back to sleep.  I felt him stir about 6:30 am – he raised himself up and looked around and then leaned over and kissed my head… LOL!  He’s just too sweet!

His Momma is in Hawaii with the other 2 kids (far left in picture below) to meet Daddy’s ship returning from a 9 month deployment.  She has had their belongings shipped to SC where they will be moving.  Shortly they will return here to spend the holidays with us.  Please keep our military families in your thoughts and prayers.  Several ships that were just days away from returning to their home ports were sent back out to the Middle East because of the Israeli – Palestinian goings on. 

Coming Home

The days/weeks/months have flown by… I enjoyed my two visits up north in MA for the shop hop and in NH for the Quilt Show.  I’ll have to do a post at some point about the show… it’s always fun!

I returned from the show on Sunday and my daughter left on Monday for Hawaii… and it’s been a whirlwind of days here keeping up with this child. 

I’ve had a couple PT and Orthopedic appointments to contend with for my sprained knee… always fun with a little one tied up belted into his stroller.  My knee is much, much better and will certainly be at it’s best again when I can get back to the gym on a regular basis.

I hear some stirrings in the other room…. not sure when I’ll return… but I do so hope everyone enjoys their Holidays!

God bless our men and women in the military and ALSO the families and extended families of those sailors and soldiers who sacrifice so much as well. You get my vote for Granny of the Year.....have you tried Velcro on the little guy???!! ;-)
