Happy Birthday Emily

Happy Birthday to Emily! Emily is my favorite daugher-in-law and not just because she's my only daughter-in-law! She makes my son happy, she's very, very sweet. She loves my granddogs and is a great mother to them. She loves all her neices and nephews and always has time to play with them. Linden is so funny around her, he absolutely LOVES Emily! It's so cute to watch him around her. She's very smart and a very hard worker, she works full time at West Texas A & M University in the Financial Aid Dept. and also takes classes so she can learn medical transcription. She also has a busy calling in Young Womens at our Church. She likes to go camping and hiking and she's good at it! She's a good organizer. She loves animals. Dick said to add that she likes peanut butter, especially organic peanut butter and organic almond butter. She's a good cook, also. She can make delicious brownies! Oh yummy!
I love her and I'm so glad she's a member of our family!

Happy Birthday Vaughn

Happy Birthday to the happiest little (well, he's big now!) 5 year old around! Vaughn is 5 years old today! He is so special, he was born on his Aunt Emily's (Randy's wife) birthday, she said it was OK with her that she gets to share a birthday with Vaughn because since she's a twin, she's used to sharing her birthday! He is always smiling and he's so loving and so happy! He is very athletic, I got to watch him play really hard this past Christmas at Jump and Jive and he's very talented, he can jump soooooooooo far! He has played soccer and he scored points for his team! Yeah Vaughn! He also plays baseball, tennis and I'm pretty sure he has learned hockey this past year. He is learning how to speak French. He is in kindergarten and he's such a smart little boy! He just had his tonsils taken out 2 days ago! What a brave little boy! I love him so much and I'm so glad that he is in our family! He is so good with sharing his toys and he's always ready to give his family a big hug. His little cousin Brionna talks about Vaughnie ALL the time. She loves him and misses him. He's a perfect little boy!

Brionna is a Psychic

I saw the cutest little pillowcase dresses over the weekend at the Affair of the Hearts, I came so close to buying one for Brionna for her birthday dress but I decided it would be so much fun to make one for her and one for Marygrace. I looked at fabric today and found some really cute fabric with cupcakes on it, it had glitter sprinkled all through it, I decided to see if I could find a pattern and if it was even feasible for me to make the dress so I didn't buy the fabric. I found a pattern on the internet and I showed the dress to Brionna this evening on the internet, she looked at it and asked me if I was going to make a dress with glitter on it for her birthday. I really didn't even mention the glitter to anyone--------------we haven't even talked about glitter on material, weird, I know.

Barnes Update

We are just living a pretty boring life right now, Dick has a little bug right now, I think he's going to the Dr. in the morning, (I hope so) I went to Oklahoma City over the weekend with Jan, we went to the Affair of the Hearts. It was so much fun but we were both so tired I think it's going to take a week to recover! The Affair of the Hearts is HUGE! It takes up 7 large buildings on the State Fairgrounds. It took us 4 hours to go through 2 buildings, we found a lot of treasures and we left happy! We also went to 2 different malls and had a great time at them, again, we left happy.
Brayden also has a little bug also, he stayed home from school today with a bad cough and a low grade fever. I mailed Valentines Day cards and a Birthday card to Belgium today, I hope they reach them at least before Vaughn's birthday. Dick went to the post office to mail a package but we decided to repack and try to use the flat rate box, it was going to be almost $80 to mail a toy, a few pairs of pj's, popcorn and dry italian dressing. I think I can make it work. I will have to mail the toy later, it's heavy.

This quilt is NOT ugly, I love it! I'm hoping I win it, or at least find the pattern she used. I love it.
