DGD2 is Miss Personality. She cracks me up. She loves her sunglasses, sometimes they are on upside down, her baby (she takes this baby everywhere, it has no clothes and no name) and she is usually carrying not 1, not 2 but multiple bags filled with all her little treasures. She spent a week with us the beginning of July. Every moment was precious. Now I'll have to remember to take my camera with me everywhere. I missed the photo of a lifetime.
Picture this......my little 2 year old DGD2 , in her nightie, hair do.......I'll just say it was a BAD HAIR MORNING........with her rain boots on the wrong feet ....... her sunglasses on upside down .....sitting in her miniature arm chair with bags/purses on both arms ..... hugging her bare baby ....... her doll stroller is parked beside her arm chair with more bags/purses hung on the stroller handles........and she has a mesmerized look on her face while she is watching Dora. She was totally focused on Dora.
I'll have to try to recreate this picture next time we go back to Canada. It was hilarious.
This is a quilt I made for a friend's SIL who came to visit us in June for the Brooklyn MI NASCAR weekend. It is a string quilt and I made a red, white and blue pillow case too. I'm short and he is tall. He is on leave until October and it is the second time the SIL has been able to come. Since 2004 we've had a NASCAR weekend with family and friends in June. They come from Canada on Friday and leave Sunday around 7 p.mish. This year 8 arrived for a weekend of NASCAR, shopping, and quilting. If the Brooklyn race is on Fathers Day weekend we have a fantastic fireworks display. Canton Michigan's Liberty Fest is always on Fathers Day and they feature the best fireworks display. We've hosted anywhere from 8 to 13 family/friends for the weekend . I really enjoy the weekend and look forward to it every year. I've never gone to the races..... I prefer the shopping and quilting. I'm so glad I was able to get the quilt done and loved how it turned out. I asked him if he would be taking it to Afganistan and he said "O yes". He was thrilled totally surprised. He immediately called his wife in New York. He is American and married a Canadian girl.
That something special I wanted to share with you will have to wait until my next post. Sorry. I'll have to wait until TAP returns from Grand Rapids. I want to link to this special someones blog and for some reason it just isn't working for me. If I get it to work before TAP returns I'll do another post before Monday. I am amazed I've completed another post, I thought it would be way way way over my head. I'm loving it but have to find a way to get 36 hours in my day.
