Thirst 4 Thursday Blog...

I'm taking a break from working on Shawn's annual Fathers Day Scrapbook to post a blog or two, I uploaded pictures from the camera and realized I had a lot of things to show and chatter about.. LOL!!

First Up! Ashley lost yet another tooth!! That's two in almost 2 weeks time! Crazy huh? I didn't realize she would be losing them so quickly!! Her Daddy was nice and let us leave the tooth for the tooth fairy the first time at our house, So he gets the second tooth at his house, She'll go there this weekend with her tooth and her pillow :o) Here is her very- earlymorning- prettygirl- toothless look..

Second up!! We bought Abbey a walker yesterday, She absolutely LOVES it! Every time we slide her down into it, she gets a big grin and starts bouncing.. so cute! There is a mirror on one of the attached toys and she is very conceited and thinks she looks very cute.. all the time! hee! Here is our baby girl...

Third up!! I made Jake's Dad a card and we mailed him a very small care package filled with goodies from the Marietta Oklahoma Robertson's meat. They have the yummiest beef Jerky, Jake bought him a game from Amazon and had it shipped to him as well. Here is his card and goodies box.. I still need to make Jake's card and he's getting a GC from Starbucks for Father's Day. Hope he doesn't suddenly decide to read my blog.. LOL!! For those who do not know my Dad is Deceased, for 13 years now. I don't "Visit" him on this day or anything... It makes me sad for weeks to visit his Grave, not just sad from his death but sad from the time he spent living.. and not being a part of our lives. I didn't miss not having a Dad around much when I was growing up but I Miss it a lot now that I'm older and especially since I see both of my Girls with such wonderful Dad's. I wish I could make them understand how very luck they are for that.. So to me Father's Day is to celebrate for the Daddy's who are so great!! That's why Shawn gets a scrapbook every year filled with Photo's of Ashley over the past year.. and Jake will get something he loves but never buys for himself.. Starbucks and lots of love from me of course :o)

Fourth up!! Knitting!!! I'm so excited!!! I have a beautiful new Dishcloth to share and a soap bag that I made for Ashley...

This is the Meringue Dishcloth Pattern, It can be found here. This one is right up there with my Butterfly Cloth! I love it so much and it was just FUN to knit :o) I Knit it from Sugar N Cream cotton.

The soap bag I made for Ashley, I found this pattern in an older issue of Knit It! Magazine oh wait it's not so old, Spring 2007 actually :o) I'm happy to report that Ashley used it first thing this morning and it was great to not have to get soap on a rag for her, I'll be knitting her a few of these up for sure!! BTW, we don't use liquid soap for Ashley because she has sensitive skin and the only soap that doesn't break her out is the original Dial soap. knit from Peaches N Cream cotton

I think that just about covers all my pictures. I need to post to my recipe blog and get back to finishing up Shawn's book, I've done 4 pages and have like 10 more to go. I have a lot of running around I have to do tomorrow, Saturday is my Sweetheart Husbands 30Th Birthday, We're having a small get together of his friends here at the house on Saturday, We're thinking of Grilling burgers. He said he really didn't want a cake, He said he wanted his favorite Oatmeal Cookies instead made by me, So I'm going to see about turning it into an Oatmeal Cookie Cake!

Everyone have a fabulous weekend!!

Cutie girls! Congrats to Ashley!
What a sweet idea to do a care package for Jake's dad!
I don't do father's day for my father or Chris'. I should pop over to Chris' grandpa with a card=) I know that feeling of hoping the kids understand how fortunate they are...
Love the knitting!!!
