M.I.A......

Okay - I totally feel guilty about not blogging lately. It's been really frustrating not being able to share what I am quilting right now. So - I have been super, super busy, but I did make time to go to my family reunion this last weekend. So - here's a few pictures from the weekend - just so you know that I am still alive and I am not abandoning my blog! :)


Since my mom will be 60 this year - we were going to have a grand celebration with all the kids and grandkids, but schedules changed and things didn't quite work out for that, so I decided to take my mom and sisters that were in town to lunch. Mom's choice was Chili's and we had a wonderful time. So, left to right - Jessie, Abby, Me, Amy, Mom - and might I say that I am so proud of my mom. She has type 2 diabetes and she is off insulin and all her medication because she has stuck to her diet - not to mention she has lost a lot of weight. So proud of you Mom! Sadly - 2 of my sisters weren't there. Wish they could have been!


Me and my sisters again - notice anything new about my hair? All gone - Abby gave me a cute A-line hair cut and touched up my roots. I love that all of our hair is not our original colors - that happens to be because we have 2 of the 6 sisters that are cosmetologists.


I can't get enough of my boys! They had so much fun at the park for the reunion.


Lili had so much fun with Maggi! They even dressed exactly alike for the reunion. My sister just moved back to Salt Lake from Missouri - so we haven't been able to be together much, but Lili and Maggi were instant friends and had a wonderful weekend.


They had so much fun sliding on the tires in the park - so they ended up with black bums! Notice their cute bows? At least my sister Jen was there through her talents!

Thanks for letting me share a little of my life with you - I am nearing the end of my stressed filled weeks and I will soon be quilting customer quilts again - and will be back to sharing all my work! Thanks for your patience!

Lovely mom, lovely daughters! Tell your mom that we do the same; we manage our diabetes with our diet! Tell her "bravo"! Good job! It can be done.
So glad that you had a joyful family time, even tho not all could be there.
