Alot has been going on over the past few months. Finally getting around to updating my blogs and catching up on new patterns and visiting my friends!
Here is the latest picture of the twins - Colby and Clayton! They are just the cutest. They went to Duke in NC to be tested for SCID's and have to return on my birthday, the 25th, for more testing. Better safe than sorry. Chris and Trish both said the Duke is a MUCH better hospital and wished that Hayden could have went there. The boys are doing great and growing well. Clayton is just a happy boy! Colby is the serious one! I love them and miss them so much!
At one of my favorite yarn stores in Winchester, Never Enough Yarn, she had a contest. The person knitting the most drain bags for women who have surgery as a result of breast cancer, wins a $50 gift certificate. My friend, Chris, gave me the pattern and being a new knitter, I thought I would try it. I had a ball making these drain bags and couldn't wait to finish one and start on a new color! I ended up making 38 bags and won the contest! Chris came in a close 2nd, making 35, and she won a $15 gift certificate. I posted pics of the bags and what I got from my winnings on my Crafty Cupboard blog. Having fun knitting now, but I still love to crochet!!!
Matt, my youngest son, and his girlfriend, Holli, are expecting a little girl August 28th. Her name will be Abigail (Abby) Sylvia Louise. The middle names are after my Mom and her grandmother. I hope she is born on the 25th, that would be the BEST birthday present! But we will see!
Can you believe that September is just around the corner? Where has time gone? On one hand time has gone by fast. But when it comes to thinking of my Mom, I wish I could rewind time. But I can't. I miss her so much. Yes, I am having a very hard time dealing with her gone. She was the best Mom, my best friend, my support, my hugger - my everything. Just so hard here with out her. She loved seeing all the things I made. I really dread my birthday coming up. My day without my Mom. But I know she and Hayden are in Heaven having fun and making up for lost time! And I know she kept her pinky promise with me!
So...until my next post, hugs and love to everyone! I've missed you all!!!
