Weekend Wrap Up

Another birthday celebration for Miss Em - but with family this time. Had a nice cookout and more CAKE!! YUM!!

Looks like someone is tuckered out!

However, this was Malek this morning - ready and raring to go to daycare. He turned 18 months old today!!

So today's post isn't all about gratuitous kid photos....here's a little quilty goodness that I whipped up a week or so ago for my grandad's 86th birthday!

Promise of more quilting fun to come. Working on an I Spy Hexagon quilt for a co-worker's grandson, a disappearing 9 patch Mary Engelbreit quilt for a former co-worker that is having another brain tumor removed tomorrow and pics of a sweet little quilt I won from Rachel over at p.s. i quilt via her sponsor Quilter Girl! OMG is it more adorable in person!!!

Cheryl & Jason 07-17-10

As promised....pics from my cousin's wedding this past weekend. Miss Emma was asked to stand at the guest sign-in book. She was thrilled! And I finished the dress in plenty of time!! Unfortunately, I didn't get a single picture of the back of it. The wedding was held in Rusk, TX at a beautiful old home called Grace Manor.

My aunt, the mother of the bride, made the wedding cake and the groom's cake. And boy were they delicious!!!

This was the sand pouring ceremony that joined them all together into a Family of 5!

This is Cheryl with her boys Kaden and Ethan. We were even able to bust my grandmother from her nursing home for a few days. She wouldn't have missed it for the world!

Has it really been 3 wks???

Talk about a slacker! I just realized that it's been 3 weeks since my last post. So here's a little of what we've up to in our household.....
1 - Emma's 9th Birthday / Sleepover - we were supposed to go the a local play pool, but with all the rain we've been having here in TX, we decided to go to the movies instead and saw Karate Kid.

But not before hours of karaoke. Notice the time on the clock. That's PM folks and it's only started....

2 - Swimmin' fun at the local kiddie pool. How precious is this kid I ask ya? Knock kneed just like his mother. Poor baby.

3 - Finished up BOTH of the following quilts! Yeah me! Finally - I know my mom and Zack are both proud of that!

And 4 - Not much else. Currently working on a dress for Emma to wear to my cousin's wedding on Saturday. Talk about workin' under pressure! I may be sewing til the wee hours of the night tomorrow. I'll post pics next week. It's been a long time since I've had to make ANYTHING using a pattern and even though I have a Home Ec degree, I am having a hard time with this pattern. Hopefully, between me, my mother, my aunt and my grandmother, it will be finished in time for the wedding.

I'll leave you with a couple of funny pictures of Malek. This one reminds me of the one I posted here of Emma. Almost identical! No denying they're my kids or at least that they are related.

Hope this isn't how he's going to treat his kids!
See ya later! Just hope not in 3 more weeks!
