"GO DARRYL"

Hello Everyone!

I pray you all have been enjoying the new year.  It is already the middle of January!  Valentines Day will be here before you know it.....got to get my tree decorated.  Will show you when it's done.  I have some little felt hearts and red bows to hang on it, along with some red beads. 

Our oldest son ran his first collegiate track meet of the year.  He did an awesome job!  He made it to the finals and he placed as well.  He has to find out what place and then I can let you know.  He is doing a great job in school as well.  We are so proud of him!!!!!!

So I made the cookies and they were delicious!  I didn't get a chane to take a picture to show you, but take my word they looked good.  Did I tell you I love my new mixer?!!!!!!!  Made some pumpkin bread the othernight too and it was delicious.  The kids LOVED it.

So are you making any Valentines Day crafts?  Do share them.  I don't have any planned at the moment, but I have moved on to Easter.:-) 

I have been sewing like crazy!  Finished the Tweety Bird backpack too.  I wasn't too happy the way it turned out, so I let Jordan take it to school to give away.  I do this a lot.  He said he knows someone who'd like it.  Feel free to tell me what you think.

Well gotta run, so you all take care and hope to blog again next week.

A New Day

So, yesterday was dear Hubby's birthday.  He just wanted a nice quiet dinner at home with family.  He and Jordan had to take the tree to the recycling place and then I had to vacuum up all the pine needles.  I didn't water the tree for a few days so there wouldn't be much water in it once they got ready to take it out.  We had a 7 ft tree!  It was beautiful though.  I just loved everytime I walked in I could smell the pine. AHHHH!

Well I cooked hubby some fried chicken (yum), so chicken fried rice and peas and carrots- peach cobbler was desert!  I must say that Aaron gave him a run for his money.... he ate 3 big legs just like daddy!  Aaron can eat.  Needless to say that Aaron and Phonso had the same amount of food. 

I cut out another little aline dress, this will be going in my shop too.  I now have 12 items listed...Yea me!  My plan is to TRY and sew something everyday, although I do have other things to do in between stitches.  Well I'm getting ready to go and get dinner ready for tonight plus I'm baking cookies with my new kitchen aid mixer!  Phonso got it for me for Christmas. He is the greatest!  See ya.


Yummy! Golden Crisp Fried Chicken

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I pray that you all had a great CHSRITmas!  We had a great time here.  Our oldest son and his girlfriend came for CHRISTmas and we enjoyed them.  Krystin enjoyed herself so much she didn't want to leave.  She was a joy to have.  While she was here we had a small earthquake on Wednesday.  It woke her up.  She said she was glad to have experienced it.  The kids enjoyed seeing thier brother.

I don't make resolutions anymore, my hubby says they are goals.  My goal for this year is to make something everyday.  I have sooooo much fabric that I need to destash.  I am going to start on some Valentines items.  I have kept my small white CHRISTmas tree down. I am going to decorate it for every holiday.  This is going to be fun!  I have white lights on it and I plan to put red bows, hearts and red beads (as garland) for Valentines Day.  Will take a picture of it once it's decorated. 

Wishing you all a new year filled with lots of happiness, prosperity, good health and much love.
