Jackson is always delighted when we pay an extended visit and is known to climb into bed with us early morning and go right back to sleep. We just love his slow wake ups and giant hugs.
Hunter has finally clicked in to who we are. Because we are gone for the winter it has taken him a little longer to figure it out. He can now say Gamma and Poppa - I think he is trying to wear it out. He is talking a blue streak and is quite clever. This morning, I told him he was a cute boy and his answer - I no cute boy, I Hunter. Cracked me right up.
You have seen photos of the other two grandchildren so this time we feature Hunter getting his second haircut. Please excuse the runny nose - he has a summer cold. I mentioned that I had finished a lovely bookmark that Clare from Fair and Square had sent me. Here it is:
I reached the halfway point with PS Autumn Leaves - the frogs have obviously moved on to someone's else's house as I was able to accomplish quite a bit. Again, blogger has rotated this photo for it's own reasons. I'm beginning to think it wouldn't be my regular post without at least one sideways photo.
I evened pulled Noddy and Friends from the bottom of my bag and now you can see Noddy's yellow car taking shape. It is colorful and a quick stitch on 14 count aida so I get a lot done when I pull it out.
And my last piece of stitching - the 3rd part of Lady Periphaeria's Mystery Sampler. I had lots of trouble getting this one going again. Even after all mine and Dani's careful counting - it was still off. After three starts, you can see my meager progress. Ah well, onwards and upwards.
Well, that's all the stitching for this week. I did take the opportunity while at my son's and use his wireless to visit all over the stitching blogs. It was such a treat to view everyone's wonderful stitching and catch up on everyone's news. There seems to be a lot of pregnancies popping up all over. Wow, congrats everyone. After this past week, I am indeed glad it is you and not me.
And one final thank you to Dani for joining me for a little shopping and dinner one evening. She and I frequented my favorite restaurant anywhere "The Lone Star Cafe" in Ottawa. They make the BEST fajitas. Their shells are made fresh on site. I can still taste those fajitas and smell the mesquite. It was nice to have an adult conversation and to have a break from the children and grandchildren.
