A Great(Grandmother) Visit

"Over the river and through the woods to great grandmother's house we go!"

Brian's mother is a 4th generation East Texan whose mother and sister still live in her hometown, Marshall. With a 4 day weekend, we decided to make it a family affair and Brian's folks, his sister Brooke and the three of us headed up for a visit. Staying in Longview at the folks' second home we had a wonderful time together and passed around the ever talkative Wilder Scott. By the way, my mother-in-law makes a mean lasagna.

Quality time with Aunt Brooke

Grandpa Barry (BPaw) and Aunt Brooke finalize travel plans for the her upcoming wedding while Brian seeks new insight on the financial market (either that or he's reading about guns again.)

Grandma Betty (BMaw) is a great snuggler

At 93, Great Grandma Lolly is still an expert at baby loving!

Four generations

"Nice to meet you, Great Grandma Lolly," Wilder said while holding fast to her finger.

Three generations -the daughters

Aunt Brooke made Wilder giggle like crazy on the drive back to Longview.

This was the first time Wilder saw Lolly and Great Aunt Shirley. With a four (plus) hour drive, we finally felt capable of conquering the trip as Wilder turned 4 months old. Wilder was a sheer delight and entertained a room filled to the brim with relatives and visitors in Lolly's retirement apartment. Cherished memories indeed. We're looking forward to our next visit!

Hey, Wiley Likes It!

Watch the video!

Wilder had his first taste of real food yesterday. Rice cereal.
He made a mess. Breakfast, lunch and dinner -he was game for a little white mush after a full milk feeding. Here's our lunch experience.

Time With The Men

These two made it through the estrogen-fest/trunk show I hosted Friday night, so I thought I'd provide a little tribute to father and son. As you can see, they barely survived. Full recovery mode in action.

"Gee, I wish Dad would wake up so we could discuss who to vote for in the upcoming primary."

"What to you MEAN you'd rather vote for Hillary than McCain?!"

Sleeping in heavenly peace

This is getting framed.

You two are SO easy to love.

And THIS is why I love being a mother.

Sew Amazingly Fun

Darling, you'd love these sachets! They're so versatile, decorative and ooh-la-la, if you know what I mean. I made several trio sets with ribbon loops so they can be hung from door knobs, lamp switches, rear view mirrors, or -my particular favorite- closet hangers.

Ready for a sweet Valentines!

Mmmmm... I love this set!

I ADORE these blankets! I made three for Wilder and nearly use them exclusively. They are larger than typical receiving blankets -a full yard- and are perfect for swaddling and also laying out as an indoor or outdoor play mat. Soft flannel decorated with ribbon and on the reverse side, a sturdy cotton.

John Dear, oh dear.

I'm selling these at the multi-trunk show I'm having at my house this Friday and I hope the gals who attend will enjoy these sewing delights as much as I have!
