Lots of visiting and watching the 'little ones' grow. My 'littles' are not so little anymore. They have lives, careers and little ones of their own now!
Emily is moving from talented Songwriter to Performing her music at local events!
She started college 3 weeks ago and keeps a full-time job as Administrator and Construction Estimator (she works off blueprints).
Carl started with the same company when he was 15. Between the two of them, they practically run the place!
He has a beautiful family and has brought me a daughter-in-law that I absolutely LOVE like my own. He is a complete family man..all his dreams come true.
He turned 1 yr old this summer.
The Navy life seems to suit them well and they have made good friends in Georgia.
He's not very little anymore..he has mutton chops on his face that make full-grown men jealous! School has started again and it's looking to be a good year for him.
As for Issie and me? We've enjoyed traveling to Missouri this summer and keeping up with everyone. I started selling off our pottery collection on Ebay so she has had lots of opportunity to bark at the mailman, which she thoroughly enjoys.
Issie got her first summer haircut and discovered that she LOVES 'spa day' for doggies at the 'salon'..LOL She especially loves the little bandana they give her afterwards and won't let me take it off of her for days!
We are rearranging the house a bit to make room for a 50 gallon aquarium. I've had fish since I was 10 yrs old and now my husband has taken to the hobby as well..YAY!
Speaking of best friends, her oldest daughter is ready to give birth to a new 'little' of her own! This will be her 4th and has been a high risk pregnancy so we've had a few scares and anxious moments throughout. Keeping this girl on bed rest is nearly impossible but we are trying. Here is a pic of her beautiful 'littles'
Turning to Crochet..it's time to get busy again...and that's always a happy thought.
I've got a hat and booties to get made for our newest 'little' and that needs to be soon! Grandma Cari is making her blanket on the loom so I've got 'bootie duty' LOL
My Facebook friend, Anne-Pia Hansen, is hosting a Challenge this month (September). She is Danish but don't let that slow you english-only speakers back..both Google and Bing have great translation tools.
I have never found different languages to be a problem for me because we all speak the common language of Crochet. If you doubt for one second that crochet is an official language, try reading a pattern or visit a crochet forum. Nobody understands yarn-speak like we do!
