Good Morning My Friends!
I'm going to let you know what I've been up to these last few months.
I know I've kind of been MIA.
I've put my heart and soul into my T-Bug!
It's been a year of working through grief,
and yet finally some joy and I was determined
to make it the best I possibly could!
First it was the baby shower I put on for her...
Whipped up that baby quilt I showed you pics of the fabric for...
in less than 4 hours....
|In the works...|
Remember the before pics....
Am I the only quilter who starts a quilt the day before???
I have to say....
the shower was a ball to put on...
|Filled little baby bottles full of M&M's|
|Pulled Fabric and Quilts from my stash for tables....Good thing I have a stash in all kinds of colors....|
|Cooked all kinds of delish food....|
Above I am tearing up some of my homemade Artisan Bread for dipping in my Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip.
I couldn't figure out what to put the pulled bread in....
then I noticed my big 'Flour' jar at home with the lid.
This was the Menu:
(Jalapenos stuffed with Cream Cheese, Wrapped in Bacon and Grilled.)
Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip with Homemade Dipping Bread
Chicken Pot Stickers
Cheese Ball with Spread
(Chicken wrapped in Bacon, rolled in brown sugar and a little bit of cayenne, then grilled. They are called Crack because literally you can't stop eating them!
Note: The Wife of the Escort who was with our Lost Soldier Boy from the time his body left Afghanistan until it was in the ground brought the Crack.
Although her husband was over in Korea when the soldiers came home in July,
his wife went and picked Tory up and took her to the homecoming when she didn't think she could do it.
(I had a lot of good help from Steven's family!)
|T and her new mother-in-law|
When I met Laura above, I thanked her for being so good to Tory.
She looked at me with a look that said, "Are you kidding me?"
And actually said,
"I fell in love with Tory from the moment I met her!"
Now to think I thought I was going to be able to tell you
Thanksgiving with her new in laws in Alabama on their plantation,
The Birth of Baby Kash...
all in this post!
I like to keep my posts readable...
so I will post those later this week!
Have a wonderful Holiday'ee week!
