Family Time

I hope you are all enjoying your Sunday. Today is a very special day as it is my dear Son's Birthday and as he is my 'baby' it makes me feel a tad ancient. We are very proud of the man he has become and wish him many, many more.
Last night we had a little family celebration at Hogs Breath which the little and big boys love. Here is the Birthday boy with Number 1 son and my lovely Daughter-in-law.
Our youngest Grandson very excited it's Daddy's birthday.
Dear Daughter and Son in law...lovely smiles.
Mr R. and our oldest Grandson...

Then we have the yummy cake complete with a little golf buggy and golf ball...(DS plays golf which is perhaps obvious now)
Now where are the two newest members of our family you may well ask....
Miss Charlotte is snoozing while Miss Erin kept an eye on the proceedings.
Family time is so special.
Big Birthday Hugs Lucas xxxx
The reason that I often subject you all to my Family snaps is because my blog is like a Journal for me and I like to get my blog printed like this..

The latest version (above) arrived on Friday. I get my blog printed every 6 months. I love reading them in a quiet moment and remembering where I had been and with whom and documenting special things in my life like family and my stitching. Maybe those little people will get a kick out of reading about themselves one day too.
On the sewing front another little Dresden plate is almost done...
They are definitely not quick to do but I am really enjoying the process.....and....still quilting!!!
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
Blessings Michelle xxx

    love your friends goldilocks cushion, I made one about 15 years ago from a kit my niece had been given. Haven't seen it since so it was lovely to see your friend's one. So wish I had kept the one I did myself.
