What a Month!!

Actually this year has been crazy full. Lots of milestones too:) A few weeks ago our daughter turned 18...
Yes, the cake is half gone:) This was our second stop for her birthday celebrations. It was weird this year because her birthday fell on Easter, so we needed to go to both sides of the family instead of having them all together. She made the cake this year, and I don't know if you can tell, but that white and pink section is a bunny booty and feet. She also had a bird's nest with eggs and there is one 'carrot' still in the cake, planted in some 'dirt'. It was so cute:)

She participated in her last 'Formal' and 'Soiree' (prom alternatives)...


My hubby and I also celebrated our 20th anniversary by taking a short family trip to visit a museum a few hours away from home.

Our daughter participated in her graduation ceremony (sorry no pictures yet. We had a photographer, but I should have taken some pictures too, and I got caught up in all of it and forgot!!). It was a really nice, small ceremony as it was just Rylie and her friend that was graduating (homeschool if you didn't already know:). Rylie still needs to finish up a couple classes before she's officially done, but she's getting close and hopefully will have those classes finished by the end of summer.

And tomorrow is my 40th birthday!?!?! How did that happen??? My mother in law always takes us out to dinner for our birthday, and I'm planning on meeting with my sister in law and a friend to do a little gabbing and stitching (oh, and the friend just had a baby, SOOO, maybe a little snuggling too:).

So it's been a busy month with lots of fun and big milestones to celebrate!! Other than a graduation celebration for a friend's daughter, and a cousin's wedding, I think the craziness is going to settle down now:) It's good, I need a bit of a rest!!

Crafting On - And It's DONE!!!

Linking up with Nicole at Frontier Dreams and Crafting On.

I have been pretty quite over here on my blog. The past few months have been busy but the past 2 weeks have just been crazy. Most of all that is done for now and I'll blog later this week to tell of it. Needless to say, when life ends up that busy it sure does cut into how much crafting time I have:)
I did get some done here and there, even setting up a time to meet with my sister in law so I would have an excuse to do a little stitching. So I don't have a lot to show off this week, but I do have this...
The 'John Deere' inspired baby blanket is done!!! I'd like to say it got done before the baby made his way into the world, but that's okay. It finally warmed up in our area, so I'm sure the baby isn't hurting to stay warm:) I'm hoping to deliver it to the family this week.

And to those that follow my blog and may be wondering how my first sock is coming along.. Well, I realized that I completely ignored a step while knitting the heel flap/shaping. I could have tinked back 16 rows, but I ended up just pulling the whole thing out. Now I'm just about done with the leg and will be starting the heel flap again. Oh well, I will get some practice at it at any rate:)

Off to see what you all have been up to this week!!
