Grandson's Birthday and update on Day 4's project.

My eldest grandson will be 7 on Tuesday. I can't believe it. It seems like just yesterday he was a baby. Since his mom and dad aren't together, we had a birthday party yesterday at a skate park that he and my son like to go to.

Last year his mom and me got him good with cake and icing. This year he did it to himself with his cupcake. Love that kid!

Next weekend I'll have some more birthday stuff for him since I get paid this week. I didn't plan ahead to have his ice cream cake for after the birthday party, so we'll do it again. Lucky kid!

Day 4 of the 2012 Crazy Cross Stitch challenge was this wonderful design that totally describes my family. "Our Family Puts the Fun in Dysfunctional" by Sue Hillis Designs. I needed something that required very little thought or true counting. So decided this was the project to work on this weekend. Oh how much fun I had working on this.

I may work on this a little more tonight to help me unwind from this crazy fun weekend. As quickly as this is working up, I may just run with it for the week and see if I can't finish it up. I bought a frame for it yesterday and I think I'll not put the buttons on the actual stitching but hot glue them to the frame, just for something different.

Looking forward to a new week and lots of interesting new stuff at work. So until next time...Happy Stitching!!
