Backyard Visitors

I put this feeder up last year and never had a single bird come to it.  Now they are fighting over it!  My pics aren't too good because I have a simple digital camera and I had to take them from inside the house.

Birth Record Finished!

I was able to get alot of stitching done this week and got the Birth Record finished.  My camera doesn't do the colors justice.  The colors are nice and bright and I'm pleased with how it turned out.

Prom Weekend #1 

This past Saturday was my youngest daughter's Senior Prom.  Her date is from another school, so his prom is this coming Saturday.  Winds were about 40 mph all day on Saturday and all that kept going through my mind was all the girls going to get their hair done for prom.

It was a long weekend for us parents.  From 5 pm until 1 am on Friday, us parents set up for the Afterglow and set up the decorations in the gym for picture taking before the dinner & dance.  After the dance, around 11 pm, the students come back to the gym for formal introductions and then the students go into another area of the school for the Afterglow, which is a drug free, alcohol free alternative for students.  They are locked in until 3 am and there are prizes, food, music and all sorts of games.  Us parents take down the decorations in the gym and work the games for the Afterglow.  The kids really seem to like the Afterglow and we had 100% participation this year -- meaning all the couples that attended prom also attended the Afterglow.

Welcome Frog?

I like frogs when they aren't coming to interrupt my stitching progress, but I'm afraid if I had this sitting in my garden or yard, the froggies would never leave.

Happy Stitching, until next time!


  1. Sometimes it takes a while for finches to come, but once they do... they'll come in swarms. :)

    Congrats on your birth sampler finish. It's really cute.

    So does DD wear the same dress to both proms? Or, do you buy two dresses? Again, inquiring minds... lol (Never went to prom so I don't have a clue)

  2. Your daughter is beautiful!! Nice job on the birth record and I love your frog! He is adorable! So now that your birth record is finished what are you going to stitch next?

  3. Your daughter is so pretty and her dress is to die for. Hope she had a good time. The birth record is really nice and as to the birds sometimes it takes them a while to find things, they will tell all their friends and you will have even more next year.

  4. Your frog is so cute! Your daughter is very beautiful. It is so nice when parents get involve with the prom with their children, even it is an after activity. Your baby sampler came out great. Congrats on the finish

    And best of all I love the bird feeder photo. I had to stop filling mine. The feral cats were killing the birds and leaving them. No fun chasing Rory around for the dead bird. LOL
