We've been planning to make a trip to see KB's mother since the last of December. We planned to surprise her for her birthday, which was yesterday, but KB thought he better call her yesterday because we always call on that special day. So he told her we would be there to take her to supper at the best MEXICAN FOOD RESTAURANT ever, La Espanola restaurant in Dalhart, TX. We have not eaten there in more that 8 years.
We have not been able to make it back to Dalhart much at all since we moved, so we're looking forward to the trip. We do miss our family and friends from our OLD hometown. Have a wonderful Friday and Fantastic SUPER BOWL WEEKEND !!!

I have been making these cute dish towels. It's a lot of fun to create them and I love using these type towels in my kitchen and they look really cute haning on my oven door handle. I received this picture as a card from some company. I scanned it and copied it onto fabric that I ran through my printer. I found these cute cotton colored dish towels. They are in a package of turquoise, red and blue. I love them. They are so soft....
I have made quite a few of these neclaces for family and friends. When I started I thought that stamping would be rather easy. Man was a sadly mistaken. It is very difficult and I missed up many spoons before i have finally gotten the hang of it. I love creating and making gifts for people. The large one in the center is for my mother-in-law who turns 79 tomorrow. She and my mom are the same age and they went to High School together. Both of them are in really good health for almost 80 years old. I just hope that I can be in that good of health and look that good when I am their age.
Happy Wednesday to EVERYONE!! God Bless and Hope you have a fabulous week from here on out.

TOO MUCH FUN!!
When we have the little guy for the night or the weekend, it is always so much fun, and then this is how we end up at the end of the day. Last weekend we got to keep W for the night while his mommy and daddy went out. We had a lot of fun and he kept us both really busy. We did a little bit of everything. He loves to help KB out in the shed to work on just about anything. The first thing they made was a door in the shed for the two cats to come in and out of, this way, they do not have to go under the shed in all of the mud to get into the shed, which is where they stay in the cold winter. This was great fun because he LOVES using any TOOLS. He is very good with them too. He got to hammer, and saw, drill and put screws in wood. We have a small drill and he can use it real well.
Next, we made some cookies and also strung some bead to make a bracelet for mammy and his mommy.
WES the MAN!! Upside down sunglasses and all. This pic is not recent but so cute I had to write about this. This is the first I remember of him being so very independent.
He was in CHARGE of everything, that is his horse Candyman, a minature.
