Time Flies!

My Daughter Jess sent me a text today that said "Mom, you really need to update your blog" and she was right! Courtney and Kileigh are still staying with us, my Mom has been in and out of the hospital, and I am finding less time for tending to my blog. I have been busy planning for Jessica's baby shower and worrying about her too! The shower went well last Sunday. We had such a nice turn-out. People were very generous to Jess, Mike and Bun. So far, Jess is 32 weeks and still on bed rest. Looks like every ones prayers are working and Bun is staying put like a good boy! His kidneys still don't look normal, but we will deal with that after he is born.

I just sat down and submitted my 8 finished Bead Journal Pages to be posted on the 2008 BJP Members Gallery Page. I still plan to finish the other 4 pages over the next few months. I am excited to tell you that there will be a 2010 Bead Journal project! Registration starts tomorrow go here if you are interested. I know I am going to give it another go! This years BJP doesn't start until January 2010, so please consider joining us! You will get far more out of it that you can believe! I know I sure did.

Life is hectic!

I have no pictures to show today, just a brief update. I am happy to tell you that Jess has reached the 30 week mark without delivering Bun! She is still on bed rest, but her contractions have slowed. If this continues, Bun may make it closer to his due date. All of our fingers are crossed for that. We would really like him to stay put until the 34 week mark for his start in life to be the best possible one.
I have had the unexpected pleasure of having my daughter Courtney and little Kileigh staying with us for the last 2 weeks. It is so sweet having a little one around again. It really makes me miss being the Mother of little ones, but its a close second to that. She is my little buddy and likes to help with everything from cooking to taking care of the dogs. So fun! I am so blessed to have the family I have. I wouldn't trade them for anything. Tomorrow Jess and I are working on Buns quilt. We are making him a Peter Rabbit quilt to match his nursery. I will post a picture when its done. We aren't the most experienced quilters, but it is turning out cute and such a bonding experience for Jess and I. Not that we aren't bonded already, but its so fun to be making the quilt in anticipation of the arrival of Grandchild #2, my first little grandson! Hugs to everyone! I have started my 9th BJP and will post a picture when I get a little further along.
