My Son Has Taken A Bride!
Some of you may be wondering where I have been for several months and I wanted to fill you in!! I have been busy planning/creating a wedding for my son and his wife....what a fun time we have had. They were engaged just before Christmas and planned an August wedding on the shores of Lake Michigan where her family has a beautiful home. God gave us a perfect day and lots of fun and family!! We love our new daughter and our youngest child (Aubrey...see post below) loves having a big sister to hang out with. Madison and Sheena are living in the next little town over to ours so we are able to see them about once a week for fun! I can't believe I am old enough to have a married child but life marches on! I look forward to this next phase of my life....I hope and pray that I will be a good mother-in-law....and all I have to say is.........BRING ON THE GRANDKIDS!!!!
I have missed chatting with you and my goal is to post once a week from this day forward (oh, I still have the wedding on my brain!) I have started the dye pot and have been preparing to tear into making mittens and scarves with applique and needlefelted accents......ah, wool.....I just love that stuff! Hope you are enjoying the beautiful painting God has provided for those of us that live in "color" has been glorious!! Baked my first batches of pumpkin bread last night to ship out to my son in college and all the college age cousins......such fun!
Blessings to each one of you and thanks for your patience with me....I will try to do better in the future......%-)
