Baby A and Baby B!!!

Trish gave me a copy of the ultrasound pictures. Baby A is 6 weeks 2 days and Baby B is 6 weeks 5 days. Amazing how they can pin it down that close! I just had to share with everyone! Especially when they are the size of a grain of rice!

Already thinking about what to crochet in doubles for my babies!!! :) I can't wait to find out what they are! 6 more weeks to wait!

I took Missy to Chris and Trish's house and buried her by Hayden's tree. That was hard for me to do. Not digging the hole, but saying goodbye to such a beloved pet. It sure is quiet in the mornings without her. Pete is so lost without her too.

Hugs and Love to all my friends!

Rest in Peace, My Dear Little Friend...

Today, at 4:30pm, my bird, Missy died. She was 9 years old. She was the prettiest blue parakeet. She couldn't get up on the perch. She wasn't acting well these past few days. I stayed with her the whole time. I saw she wasn't going to be with me much longer. I told her it was ok, go fly to Heaven and have fun with Hayden. I told her I loved her. She then spread her wings out and looked up at me, closed her wings, put her head down and went away. How much more graceful can a precious pet pass away? It really broke my heart.

Why do pets tear your heart to shreds?

I went to Michael's and found the prettiest little wooden box with a latch. I decorated it with pink stone hearts and words to go on the lid inside. I even crocheted her a pillow and blanket. Yeah, ok, call me crazy. She was a very loved little bird. She has been there thru thick and thin with me. She reminded me every morning chirping that life goes on. I will miss her alot. My Mom's bird, Pete, knew something was up. He has been so quiet tonight. He is a motor mouth, but not tonight. It's way too quiet here tonight. I'm miss my little friend. My heart is broken again.

Been a rough year of losses for me so far.... sorry to ramble, thanks for listening. Hugs and Love to all.....

Prayer for the Death of a Beloved Pet
By Rabbi Barry H. Block

O Lord our God, we come before You this day in sadness. Missy, who brought us so much joy in life, has now died. Her happy times in our family’s embrace have come to an end. We miss Missy already.

Help us, O God, to remember the good times with (Missy). Remind us to rejoice in the happy times she brought to our home. Let us be thankful for the good life we were blessed to give to her.

We are grateful to You, God, for creating Missy, for entrusting her to our care, and for sustaining her in our love for a measure of time. We understand that all that lives must die. We knew that this day would come. And yet, O God, we would have wanted one more day of play, one more evening of love with Missy.

O God, as we have taken care of Missy in life, we ask that You watch over her in death. You entrusted Missy to our care; now, we give her back to You. May Missy find a happy new home in Your loving embrace.

As we remember Missy, may we love each other more dearly. May we care for all Your creatures, for every living thing, as we protected the blessed life of Missy. May her memory bless our lives with love and caring forever. Amen.

I Have To Remember This...

A very special friend sent this to me on Facebook. It brought tears to my eyes because it is so true and it says alot about me! I just had to share this with a picture of my favorite rose color: yellow.

"She can deal with stress and carry heavy burdens. She smiles when she feels like screaming and she sings when she feels like crying. She cries when she's happy and laughs when she's afraid. Her love is unconditional. There's only one thing wrong with her - She forgets what she's worth! And Her Name is Elizabeth and I love u♥"

Catch Me If You Can!!!

September was a busy month - let me see if I can get everyone caught up! This is a froggy I made and she is sitting on my piano I got for my birthday! Isn't she the cutest little froggy?

These are a set of slippers I crocheted for kids for the Slipper Project. I love this pattern - it's my favorite one to use when making slippers.

I made this crochet Angel for Trish to put in Hayden's glass hutch. I made 2 other angels and gave them to my friends who lost her grandson and her daughter. I also made the Mom angel and have it for sale on Zibbet. (Not happy with that one, may go to Etsy!)

A friend and I went to Ocean City, MD for the AutumFest. First stop was at my favorite restaurant, Bayside Skillet. I absolutely LOVE their strawberry crepes...don't they look so delicious!!!!

From there we went to Fenwick Island Lighthouse. In the past when I was there, they were always closed. It was nice to hear the history about the lighthouse and got my book stamped. You couldn't climb to the top, but it was still wonderful to see inside!

Then we went to the beach! We finally found a place to park and just started walking! The sky was filled with beautiful and unusual kites!

We passed the Sand Art. It's so amazing how artists can make such beautiful work in the sand.

We finally made it to the Craft Tents. Alot of neat and unusual items there. I was looking for one vendor from last year, but she wasn't there. It was alot of high end crafts. Had alot of fun looking! Nothing grabbed me to say buy me! Got some boardwalk fries - so delish! Gave the crumbs to the birds - fun to watch them swoop in to get them!

I got to walk thru Salty Yarns store and look at all the yarn, cross stitch, and other items in the store. Outside the store were rocking chairs - just calling my name! So I picked one, with my name on it - hahaha, and just relaxed, rocking away, watching the kites and the ocean. So relaxing.... can't you tell by my picture?

I hated to see the day end at the beach. I love it there. Alot of memories, good memories....all gone now.

Driving back over the Bay Bridge, the sunset was so beautiful. Just had to get a picture. It was a fun day - hated to see it end!

I found a pattern on Ravelry for the crocheted Sock Monkey Hat pattern and just had to try it. What do you think? I could see Hayden running around ina blue Sock Monkey Hat! :)

Trish and Chris got another dog, McQueen. He is a mini greyhoud. So precious! I went over to their house Saturday for dinner and crocheted a sweater for him. Eva just loves her new playmate!

So...busy month - one way or another!
