Four Words Down, Eight to Go

Here are two more words to the Double Flip It Series. I didn't have much time to work on it over the weekend but did make progress. I really am enjoying this piece.

How was everyone's weekend? Sat. and Sun. were so busy for me they flew. So yesterday I just relaxed and stitched. Sat. my brother and sister-in-law arrived in from MO. Later that afternoon we all went to a Mexican Restaurant that was so good and it was so nice in there. We all enjoyed it. Johnny who is now 20 months, and an energetic bundle of fun and joy stole the show. He talks pretty good for being so young and does put small words together. If you remember, my mom lost part of her leg a few months ago, and now has a prosthesis. Johnny is so fascinated by that, he made sure everyone knew about it, by saying "See her leg? Where is it?" Then the owner of the restaurant came up and talked to us and in end thanked us for coming and Johnny turns around and says to him "Thank You" It was so cute. Not long after that, he came back with a big stuffed fish for Johnny.

Sunday afternoon more family members were able to join us at our niece Melissa's house. Johnny made sure he greeted everyone and hammed it up again. Another niece and her husband had their baby, Addie there. Addie is 4 months old now. Johnny loved her but he has this thing about biting. Fortunately he got caught and stopped as he just was about to bite her. He's getting better but still....He gave Addie his pillow to lay on and tried to share some of his toys with her. So cute. Ashton who is 5 and started school today was running around outside with his Uncle Andrew. We hardly saw Ashton. He did ask his mother for a baby brother or sister as he loves babies. He was so gentle with Addie holding her very carefully. I may be prejudiced but even Kenn and Denise said it, for their young ages, Ashton, Johnny, and Addie are all very smart. Ashton is in Advanced Kindergarten as he was too advanced for regular kindergarten so he goes to school all day 5 days a week. That sounds like a lot to me. Well enough of my boasting about our 3 little ones.
It was such a fun weekend, busy, and altogether too short.

Well, I need to run a couple of errands and then go back to stitching. Until next time Happy Stitching!
