Sports Jacket
I decided to make myself a sports jacket for the kids sporting events. I was going to make individual ones to wear to support their sport at that time but decided one would work just fine!!

Victoria wants me to cross stitch a picture of Mocha for her. I have already stitched Storm, our first Husky that we had for 15 years, Ive done Echo so now I guess I have to do Mocha!! Which picture??

Jacob had a great football game Saturday! He played the best I have ever seen him play! Of course, it always helps when you have a group of "fans" there to watch you!! We had all of our family up that day to watch Jacobs game & then back to our house for Victoria's 14th birthday party!!

Almost a drum roll please!!!
I am almost done!! All I have to do is fill in the background!!! I am so happy!! Doing the happy dance!!!!!!!!!!!

Volleyballs, volleyballs & more volleyballs!!!!
Victoria asked me to make 28 volleyballs for her "Goodie Bag" for this Thursdays match. She just asked me Saturday! She wants me to make them double sided volleyballs & then turn them into keychains. I swear I just made a bunch of these for her spring volleyball team!! How could I say "No". So yesterday I sat in the car (since it was windy & rainy & freezing) while she played her double header & worked on her volleyballs. I have 4 more to make!!

Jacob made the front page of the paper! He was so excited to see himself! They were learning about nutrition! To bad he hasn't practiced what he learned!! He loves his sweets!!
Jacob is the guy on the left in the Bengals jersey!!

Our little bookworm!!
Victoria has finally decided to read the Twilight series. She has tried for a year now but never got into them. Now all of a sudden she can't put them down! She is on the final book!!

We got new carpet!!! I love it!! It is so soft & clean looking! I said I would never be one of those people that made you take your shoes off but I think I am going to be that person...for a little while anyway!!!

Victoria had a GREAT night of volleyball last night!! Her team still hasn't lost! 9-0 We were a little worried last night but they pulled off another win! Awesome job last night Victoria!! Way to kick butt!!

A friend & I went to a wool gathering this past weekend. It was a lot of fun! Lots of wool. I took these pictures & sent them to my kids & Jacob asked "what the heck are they??" & then of course he said, "Can you bring one home??" They were so cute! I wish I could have brought one home!!
