Griffin and his baby brother or girl gifts

I made a flannel blanket and the crochet blanket for a friend who had a baby in October... I did not know the sex of the baby.... So everything I made is for either a boy or a girl... :)

The coloring book bag was made by Katy, she made a bunch of them to sell at our quilt show... She gave me this one to give to the baby's brother (Griffin) .... I added the book for him and he will get it when I give the baby's gift to them.... If you click on the pictures you can get a better at the gifts... Hugs :)

Coneflower Garden Quilt

This quilt is called "Cornflower Garden"... I made this quilt for my cousin Donna... Her Mom told me her favorite colors were green and purple, also that she love Daises.... will after a long search I settled on the Cornflowers.. This is because I could not find purple daises.... I machine quilted it and delivered it to her Mom's house so Donna could get it Christmas Day... She just love it.... The quilt kit came from Keepsake Quilting.... Hugs :)

Christmas with Jacob and Family

Everyone opening gifts... Jacob was watching his dad open a special gift from him.... :)

Jacob got a new hat for Christmas...It has a beaver on it... He loves it :)
Jacob kept his hat on while he opened his gifts.... He was so silly and loved his new hat...:)
Jacob sister (Kaycee) was showing me her new game "Clue".... :)
Kaylee was taking a nap before all the excitement in opening the gifts... This is their dog... :)
There was sooooo many gifts to open... Like they are not spoiled... Santa was very good to these two children... :)
Here is Jacob posing with his new hat... Christmas was wonderful and this was the first year that I was able to spend with my son and Jacob's family since Jacob was born.... We had a wonderful breakfast after the opening of the gifts... we played games after all the boxes were open and batteries were installed.... Later in the day we had a wonderful dinner... It was a joy for me to be able to spend the whole weekend with my boys, and Jacob's family....I hope everyone had a great time as I did... Hugs :)

Jacob's 9th Birthday

Last weekend I went to CT to celebrate Jacob (my grandson) 9th Birthday... After pizza and grinders Jacob opened his gifts... I also added a picture of his dog (Kyle) who was excited to see so many people in his house.... Jacob's birthday is the 5th of November, but because of the snow storm they had to delay til last weekend... Yes, that is a picture of me and Jacob than one of my son (Keith), Jacob and me... I just take awful pictures... The last picture is Jacob in his Halloween costume... He wanted to show what he would be if there was a Halloween... Halloween was canceled because of the storm and no power for 9 days.. So, Keith, Jacob and Jacob's mom got together with another family.... They had their kids get in there costumes and then the parents hid in the bedrooms with candles by the door and in the room... Each child knocked on the bedroom door and said "Trick or Treat" and they would get candy from each parent... Not bad thinking because of no power and a snow storm outside.... All had a great time at the party and on Halloween... Hugs :)
