“In remembrance of Me” Of course that is what the communion
table had carved into it!!! I feel so
silly that I couldn’t remember last week what written. Yes, the Family went to the Presbyterian
church yesterday. The kids had been
looking forward to it all week and ran to the church to say hello again to our
I brought lifesavers, colored pencils with paper, and two Pixie books. When I saw the Pixie books in the store it warmed my heart because they are very similar to the books that Robbie and I used to bring to church in our purses when we were little. One of our new friends had also brought some gummy babies to give the kids.
They really had fun scavenging around the yard for just the perfect items to use to make a fairy house complete with TV and exercise room.
At any rate, I needed a break after so much computer work. So I attacked Sam’s quilt. James kept busy measuring...until he discovered a small button stash. Gotta love the magic of Mom's forbidden sewing box. ;)
I only needed to sew seven more squares before working on the specific layout. I’ve found that after the first couple are complete it goes fairly quickly as I can then figure out how to assembly line them. The final ones went together without a hitch, only a bobbin refill.
Sam got up a couple of times to check on me and give hugs and kisses. She then asked when she’d get a chance to sew on her quilt. I suggested that we use the fabric remnants for her to sew a quilt for her dolls. She smiled sweetly and excitedly nodded before heading back to bed.
It was in three pieces when I had to call it quits and head to bed.
She had butterflies in her stomach. I’ve got to go and pick her up now. I hope she had a great day.

Today we headed back to the Apple store to return the iPad dud we had gotten. Personally, I enjoy riding the train. There's a constant hum and the swaying will put me to sleep in spite of the frequent stops. However, it is a completely different experience with children.
