More Baby pictures!

Friday night was spent over at Tiffany's when John fixed a broken outlet in their bathroom. So that gave me time to hold Reagan again! She is so sweet, and sleeps all the time! Give her another couple of weeks and she will start being more awake!
Worked Saturday at The Stitch Store, I encouraged 2 more people to sign up and do The Button Up Birdies from The Victoria Sampler! I just love Cathy Jean Designs! So cute and they are gonna look awesome this coming Christmas on the tree!
The weather says we might have bad weather again this week? I don't think so! I'll be surprised if we do! It's been nice today, not sunny, but not raining either!
I'll have a new cross stitch pic for you tomorrow!

Finally got to hold Reagan!

Look at me! I got to get my baby fix for the day! lol Went over to see my niece Tiffany and to love on my great niece Reagan :) She is so sweet and tiny! She weighs 5lbs and 3oz now! 18.5" long. She drinks this special preemie formula, I got to feed her today. Tiffany got up and started doing some chores that needed done since I was there to hold the squeaker!
I am back to school tomorrow! Boo-hoo! I really liked having all this extra time off! At least we only have a 4 day week!
I started another ornament last night, plus I'm working on a wedding sampler for my brother and soon to be sister in law! No wedding date yet, but since this is a pretty big piece, I figured I better get started!
See ya tomorrow!

New Finish

Here's my first ornament finished for 2011! Wahoo! This is from the 2010 Just CrossStitch Ornament issue. It was a really fast piece to do! I'm loving these little birds from The Victoria Sampler.
Thank you for your prayers and concerns over my neighbors. The are fine, have found themselves another temporary home to live in. Their landlord is rebuilding the home that burned down, he has told them that they can move back when the house is rebuilt. That's a really nice landlord in my book. Karen's work has donated furniture and money to help them get back on their feet.
Our snow is melting away and we go back to school on Tuesday! I still can't believe we had a whole week off due to the snow and ice! Yikes! It's on January friends! I am feeling alittle tired today! I'm very stiff today and can't stay warm! I hate that feeling!
Hugs till I see you again!

Pray for my neighbors please!

My next door neighbor's house burned down this morning! Friends, let me tell you that is the scariest thing and I have to vent big time! When did it become a burden to help out your neighbor? At 5:30am this morning, I had huddled in my house 11 devastated friends whom I've known for 5 years. No one else even opened their doors to check to see what was going on! And please don't tell me you didn't see the blazing house on fire or you didn't hear the sirens? And instead of coming down the road to gawk, how about offering to help out your fellow man? Lord, please forgive us as we've become so uncaring and indifferent to each other.
Thank the one neighbor who graciously gave money when I know they don't have it to give, and thank you for protecting my friends. They had no insurance as renters, they lost 2 cars in the fire also. Red Cross put them up in a hotel for tonight, I've offered my home to them if they need a place to stay.
Bless the ones who lost everything in the house fire, welcome into your arms the pets that did not make it out and bless my son Jason who is so distraught over the fact that his best friends are gone, he loves that family like his own and I know he wants all of them to move in with us. Help me Lord to help him get over this tough time.
We are watching their two dogs tonight, a Boxer/Pitbull mix and a Siberian Husky. They are camped out on my back porch tonight. Snuggle close together pups, it will be cold tonight. I've fixed up a area on my enclosed back porch for them with lots of blankets and pillows.
I'm very tired tonight as I'm sure Karen and her family are exhausted too, we tried to salvage some pictures and afew clothes from the house after the fireman gave us the go ahead to go back inside. (We were told we shouldn't go in, but since we are covered in snow and ice, the rain /sleet tonight would ruin the only room left in the house that had a few things we could try to save.)
Goodnight friends!

Look at our Snow!

Georgia has snow again! Wahoo! We got a snow day, and they have closed school for tomorrow!
I was only out in it for a very short time! Too cold! lol
I've been toasty warm in the house by the fire and I have been working on a new cross stitch!
John is sick, took him to the doctor on Sunday and I know he is miserable, just hope I don't catch it!
This is what I made for my niece for Reagan! We had her baby shower this past Saturday and Tiffany got so much stuff for the baby! Reagan is still in the NICU so we are hoping to have her home by Feb.

See ya later!

First Stitch-In of the year!

As I got home today, I knew I had to hurry up and get my school things completed, I am adding to our Farm 2 School board. So I found my veggies that I needed printed and got them cut out, so I'm ready to get them up tomorrow! Whew!
Last night was our first stitch-in back in a long time. I had alot of fun with our regular crew! I also taught a little young lady how to cross stitch last night. This is Jenna and she was a very polite and willing to learn young lady! I know this will be the beginning of many hours of cross stitch that she will love! Jenna is a Girl Scout and I've volunteered to teach the troop how to cross stitch if they so desire! Great job so far Miss Jenna!
Don't forget Saturday is our anniversary sale! We will have been open for 1 year! I will only be at the shop the the morning as my niece is having her baby shower on Saturday too! So if you want to see DaisyGirl, drop by before 12:30!

Hugs y'all!
