- End of Rant -
So I haven't been keeping up with the ol' blog like I should have. This blog actually is very important to me - it's my journal of my day to day life. So one day when I'm super old and don't know where I am, I can look through this blog and at least read about all the stuff I don't remember. Hopefully I'll know I'm reading about MY life and not someone else's:) (BLURB.COM - you can make your blog entries a book!)
So Thanksgiving! It was great. Like I've said before, one of the best perks about marrying my husband is his family. I totally love them and the best part is that they are all in driving distance. So that means I see most of them on holidays :)
Let's take a look at the delicious food one more time...Mmmmm...Grandma Solomon can probably make garbage taste good, so you can imagine what she can do with ingredients. She makes everything from scratch. Grandma Bush and Aunt Sam also put together a nice spread. YUM. They make this coconut pecan pie - O-M-G. Deliciousness.
Christian had a great time out at Aunt Sam's. He played ball, (reluctantly) rode on a 4-wheeler with dad, ran around, and yes,he put leaves in his mouth...great grandma quickly removed them.
Christian was obsessed with their German Shepard Bruno. Honestly, I would kidnap that dog in a heartbeat. Bruno was walking away from Christian, so he felt the need to chase him all around the house.
Bruno's not the only dog he tried smothering with his love. Later that evening, we went to my parents and he tried pulling that stuff with Rocky. Shi zsu's aren't known for being fond of children, but Rocky knows if he tries anything he'll get spanked, so he just sits there and looks REALLY uncomfortable.
On another note - My Next Quilting Project!
My friend Sammi mentioned I should make her a t-shirt quilt, so I thought I should try it on mine first. I found out you have to use fusible interfacing to stabilize it...now I just have to find all my high school and college shirts....I really think I only have 2 high school t-shirts and 1 is a French Club t-shirt....wow, way to have school spirit Cristal. I might have to start adding other shirts since I don't think I have enough school shirts...maybe my bachelorette party night shirt...race for the cure shirt? We'll see :)
Here are a couple of photos of my newest little model from the Carter Family Photo Shoot :)
