Over the past 5 days our lives have been a veritable whirlwind. Lets start with the beginning of last week. My dear dear husband suggested making a few lap quilts for my mother in law and her soon to be husband for their wedding...the wedding was yesterday. Oh and he mentioned that a baby quilt would make a nice gift for his best friend from school who had a baby last week. So three quilts in 4 days. A trip to sarah's (my favorite fabric shop), some new Amy Butler, and a bit of Heather Ross later and we had finished quilts. Totally a record for me.

Another year. 32 was pretty good to me, so I won't complain. I have three amazing healthy children who have inspired, humored, and humbled me this year. I have a husband whom I adore and who is in good health for the first time in a few years. I have family, near and far, without whom my sanity would be sketchy at best! I have an amazing church and friends that one person should really never deserve. And I have you all. What a gift. Thanks for being a part of my life in a real and meaningful way. Here's to 33. May it be as full and blessed as 32.

We added a new member to our family this week! A new car for mama! And for the first time in a decade, its not a minivan. It gets reasonable gas mileage (whatever that means these days), has a sweet little sunroof, and all of the kids can still be hauled around to this and that and the other thing. Its a crossover I think. Not a big SUV, but has a bit of room. And its not a minivan, did I mention that already? I am just thrilled that it was in the garage last night! We had 70 mph winds and hail the size of quarters. I thought we were going to blow away altogether. When the sirens went off for the tornado warning I thought my sweet oldest gal was going to come unglued! The rest of the fam, never woke up. Thunder, lightning, wind, hail, rain beating down like nails on the house. Literally, a tornado could come through the house and they wouldn't wake up! Through it all the only casualties were the plants on my front porch. The geraniums and taller flowers were nearly ripped out by their roots. This pic doesn't do it justice. They were stunning yesterday. Sigh. Hope all the rest of you local gals fared as well!
