NO Pictures!

Addie has decided she does not want her picture taken.

In this picture, she’s pointing her finger at Nicole and saying “NO, Mommy!”  Look at that face! She seriously does not want her picture taken these days.

She is just going to have to get over not wanting her picture taken. I couldn’t make it without my pictures of Addie!

Birthday Girl

Someone has a birthday this week. I had wanted to be there but am not brave enough to make the trip by myself til the kidney stone issue is resolved.

I cannot believe how much she’s grown since I was there last . . it’s been over 5 months. When Nicole’s mom saw this picture on Facebook, she wrote “Such a happy little fish” and that’s so true . . she’s always happy. I remember what Chad told me about Nicole when they were first dating and I had not met her yet. I said “Chad, tell me about her!” and he said “She’s always happy. You never see her without a smile on her face.”

I miss them and the very minute I’m confident that I can get there and back without a medical issue . . I’m on the road!

Treasures

There was a box in my sewing room that needed unpacking. It had some quilt related items . . the applique pressing sheet . . you know how much I use that!  :)  There were 11 chain blocks in there too. Not sure what those were for but I’ll figure out something to do with them.

Cards

Cards

This was sent to me by a great uncle.  I was 2 years old and we were living in Natchitoches, Louisiana at the time. It’s funny because almost since Vince and I have been married, I’ve begged to move back to Louisiana. Several months ago, we were in Natchitoches and Vince fell in love and I think with just a little coaxing, he could be persuaded to move to Natchitoches. I wonder what’s at Route 2, Box 386 these days.

These were the cards that were in the envelops. They were each from a different great uncle and I’m not sure if they were sent in the same envelope or not.

Also in there was this:

Driver's License

Driver’s License

My grandmother’s driver’s license from 1962. I’m so happy to have this! My mom gave me these things several years ago, probably about the time we were packing to move and they got packed in with my sewing stuff. They’re in a safe place now and I hope some day Addie will cherish them . . as I do now.
