Anyway, I had a fabulous Thanksgiving! I hope yall did too. My Nana came to spend Thanksgiving at our house, and since it has been almost a year since I have seen her I was thrilled! We had a family dinner and Leslie, Jason and their kids (pretty much my sister and brother and nieces) came over for an hour or so. We also got to skype with Wendy, Asher, Piper, Charis, and Toby and Andrew, Sarah, and Isaac! I am unbelievably blessed to live in a time where I can talk and SEE my family from miles away. Charis is talking now, copying what everyone else says. It sounded like Piper was saying "Katelyn" instead of "Datelyn" so... success! And she was so sweet, she says that she misses me and wants me to come to her house. Well, Piper, I miss you too and would love to visit, however - see earlier mention of sad depleted bank account. So please come visit me!
She is gonna visit me! April is the expected date that Richard, Wendy, and kids will be moving back to the States - stationed in Fort Campbell Kentucky!!!! Only 3.5 hours away!!
Also Richard may be coming back from Afghanistan in January instead of February, so prayers for safe travel would be appreciated.
Sad (but expected) note:
Andrew is deploying next week. I am gonna miss him so much! I have only spent one Christmas without him and I was with Wendy then...so this Christmas I will be sibling-less (hopefully I can convince Sarah to spend most of the day with me).
Now that the
I have not touched the flower quilt...but I have made two others and already given them away!
Now my best friend Kirie is due in January and will be having a beautiful baby girl Lilia...so I have been slaving over her quilt since I posted about the flower one :).
* the making of these two quilts could not have been possible without Harry Potter on CD, TV ears (if you don't have them you should - they rock), Casting Crowns - Come to the Well CD, and Adele - 21.
Now off to make some Christmas gifts. I hope to post next week...we shall see. LOL
