Today starts the marathon of cleaning the loving and dining room, because my dad and his wife are coming to Thanksgiving here!  Yipee!  I can’t believe I get t hostess.  We have been shopping already, and the turkey is thawing, cause he is a big bird and frozen solid.  All the trimmings ingredients were picked up yesterday, except of course, for those last minute things you always forget about.  The family dishes will come out of the closet and get washed to hold all the yummy stuff.  I cannot wait!  Hope you have plans for a Happy Thanksgiving also.  Whether with friends, family, or just going out – enjoy the day.

Finish and recap.

So first there was the gathering of material.100_4653

Next came cutting and then sewing together the patches by hand.piecing

Then came blocks, and rows.black block

Finally it became a flimsy or top, and now it is cuddly stadium size blanket, just right to wrap around my son, and it was done just in time for the last three games.

And of course, my favorite Veteran, my husband, John.  So proud of him.  We had the good fortune of meeting up with a couple who are still active duty, that we met at our first duty station, just last month.  Friends forever.  We miss a lot of it, and we don’t miss all of it, of course.  But thank you honey for doing your service to our Country, God, and our family.  We love you!!!!!

Papa Dencil

The man on the far right is my grandfather, Dencil Legg, with a couple of buddies, and a photo bomber, from WWII.  I was lucky to have my Papa Dink alive for most of my childhood.  I loved him and his wife Anita, my mother’s parents.

My grandfather would never talk about the war, and I wish I had some stories of his to tell.

Our family has a rich history of Veterans.  I never knew my great-grandfather, Vernon Mullins, but so dearly loved his wife Rosa.  She was blind as long as I can remember but never handicapped.  She knew everything about the Reds, could name coins by touch, and lived a very independent life.  I digress.  This is a photo of my mothers’ grandfather, from WWI.  Proud of his service and sacrifice.  I wish there was some way to know more about him.

I made a friend online and decided to send her a quick little candle mat, its a tiny quilt you sit under a plate or holder for a candle on your table.  I think its quite cute.  You could also use it for your coffee mug and a cookie.

I started it, with bronchitis.

Then our daughter got an obnoxious cold.

During which time our little man came down with an ear infection, and picked up a week long virus to boot.

And now the daddy is under the weather, fever, cough, etc.

I’d invite you over, but we don’t want to share.
