Lots of Good Stuff!

It has been an absolutely WONDERFUL week!  On Thursday, my sister and I went to Common Threads to Party with Patrick.  If you've never been to one of these parties, I HIGHLY recommend them.  We had SO much fun!!  I can't WAIT to go back!  If your local quilt shop doesn't do this, just click on the link for information, take it to your shop, and ask them to sign up.  You won't be disappointed!   Here are some pictures from our fun afternoon:
 
I have to tell you that I absolutely hate having my picture taken, but we had to document this fun day!  Can you guess which sister is older?  LOL  I'm not going to tell you!  We could have gotten the borders put on, but we did gab a lot with everyone that day (imagine that!), so we didn't get that part all done.  I just LOVE them.  Get it?  LOL

The next great thing of the week is our sister (Amanda) moved back from Germany with her son and daughter.  Her husband is now in Iraq for the next year (please keep all the soldiers in your prayers), so she moved back to be close with family while Jay is in Iraq.  Since we couldn't be at the airport with everyone else when they arrived (because we were 'partying'...LOL), we went to see her during lunch time Friday.  And here are some pictures of Amanda and her family:

 
My niece (Haley) is the taller girl on the right.   Vinnie (my nephew) said to me after I took his picture and looked at it, "Wow, that's perfect!".  It just doesn't get any better than that!  LOL  It's so nice to have them home.

I hope you all find a lot to be grateful for today and everyday!  Until next time, keep smiling!!  Tuna burger recipe will be coming up in the next blog!!
