    !!!Happy Birthday Babies!!!

    Honchey! your absence has been noted! GLAD to see you back

    POOR Dh yesterday he had to go to meditation for his fathers guardianship. he was in the meeting for five hours! Dh and siblings found out that one brother and wife that has been caring for dad for the last 5 years has made off with dads ENTIRE assets! it is a sad sad thing that such an incredible man that has WORKED for every penny, fought 4 wars, has countless accomplishments has been reduced down to nothing but a burden, WHY? because of dementia? so now Dh and siblings have to decide if they are going to file for elderly abuse and see where it all goes.

    happy Superbowl everyone! the BEST sewing day of the year! LOL

    CarrieM and JeanieG ... a lot of Robin Hoods in the making! Not sure what you call it, but a friend did the bow and arrow thing where it was kind of like a adventure/scavenger hunt thru the forest where they went off for the day. Always wondered how safe they were with others out doing the same thing.

    CarrieM ... do the kids all get to go to State/National if they wish? or do they have to win at each lower level to proceed? Where might you be going to for Nationals? Somewhere exciting I hope!

    OKSGlad ... what a nice sewing cabinet. Look forward to hearing more about your new machine!

    MiraB ... yes, get that camera clicking and show us hwt you're up to now! So many different interpretations ... to me Grill is American for a BBQ! Count me in on the pork supper!

    Anael ... No news is indeed good news and even better news with your morning update!!! Did you hear us all *sigh* with happiness! Looking to see your collection of little hats! What are you using? fleece? flannel?

    QNSue ... we never had a pastry blender as a kid, and were taught how to use two knives cutting together to do that job.

    JeanieG ... never heard of using the pastry blender as a hand mixer! Good idea and must try it. Should have asked you ... is the cake any good without all the topping on it? I like my sweets, but that looks like it could be overload.

    Honchey ... Welcome baaaaaaaaaack! I was about ready to send out a search party. Good to know you have your BBs done! I think the next challenge will be for us to get our BBs made into something and not let them become an UFO. It's going to be interesting to see all the different spins each of the 13 make to their BBs. SO good to have you back and hope that your internet/computer cooperate to keep you here!

    CarrieM ... You'll surely be the first with your BBs assembled! A reward for your extra work in coordinating!!!

    DublB ... rest today and get better!

    DDamsel ... oh so sad about your FIL. I'm sure it is hard on your DH, and his siblings to know about the brother and his actions. Pathetic. You go and enjoy that Super Bowl Sewing!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    And like DDamsel .... I am off to sew for teh rest of the day!

    Rest and Relaxation here all day; will be going to get the FWSQ Tomorrow! I can hang it there and take a picture or two to post when I get home. Will update everyone then.

    DD., I feel for your dh; so much we have gone through with my DGM and DM and FIL and MIL...no doubt about it, we are equally matched in families on both sides. We have warned the lawyer with the wills to notify the sheriff on our deaths 'cause they will come in and grab all that they can without our children's knowledge. When MIL died, the one daughter did not share with my dh (money $80,000. or things)...in fact, she was storing a lot of my Mother's things which also disappeared without my knowledge. Life goes on. They cannot escape judgment day that will come to them.

    Yes, Honchey, I was glad to see your post. Welcome back!! Life can really get busy at times...and builds up like there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done!!

    OMG Deranged - that is so sad about your FIL's assets. You hear of this going on all the time, and it always amazes me how greedy some people are! Perhaps with the dementia, your dear FIL will not be aware of what has happened to him. Of course, that leaves the rest of the siblings in a bind.

    QuiltE - yes the cake is good without the frosting, but the broiled frosting layer is not thick (but very yummy)!

    Honchey - we have missed you! Glad to see you are back with us again! You have pages of reading ahead of you, we are a very chatty group, as you know!!!!

    OK - I missed congratulating you on your new cabinet. It is a beauty!!!

    Anael - great news on Bram! Now for Isa to get there too!

    dublb - wow, that is beautiful! How fun to have a new vehicle! We have a 4-wheel drive Jeep Liberty that we tow behind the motorhome, and that is what I drive. It looks about the size of your new Toyota, I love it!

    DD, sorry about your FIL.

    Bev, nice car

    QuiltE, no I'm using jersey. It has to be washed on 140F and flannel doesn't stretch. They told me to make the hats a bit bigger So I did! I forgot to take pictures, my DDIL will do that as soon as they're dry. They're in the washing machine right now.

    Latest news: they're both farting LOL LOL. With a little help though. Bram has some bowel movement, that was a problem too. He's doing # 1 and # 2 on his own today, that's a big achievement! Isa could pee without any help. We never knew we could be so happy with full diapers

    QNS I rub rock salt into the skin of the pork, cause everyone loves crackling, lay the pork on a layer of apples and fennel and roast until yummy. I also make an apple sauce to go with it and lots and lots of vegetables.

    What precious photos of Bram and Isa, so happy to hear Bram is doing better, such a roller coaster ride for you all.

    I was just handed a cup of coffee so will drink it then I am off to the Post Office to post a few parcels.

    Glad to have you back with us Honchey you have a lot of catching up to do, best make a cup of tea and settle in to read all the posts

    Nice truck Bev I love the smell of a new car

    Anael, they look like they have gained a little weight too! Hats are soooo cute on them! Are they strong enough to suck, or are they fed through a tube?

    Back again from archery, picked up chicken for supper so that is out of the way, laundry is changed out...just checking in here again.

    For State/Nationals they have to qualify either by team or individually. Their teams have already qualified for State. They do "all-state scores" to figure out if they qualify for Nationals which means they have to have a certain amount of combined points in 2 regular tournaments plus their state points. Nationals are held in Louisville, KY every year.

    DD--I am sorry to hear about your FIL. It is sad that happens in families.

    Anael--Great current pictures of Isa and Bram!

    Dublb--Hope the "smell" can be improved! We left potatoes in our van one winter which was fine until spring when they thawed...yuck! We never could get that smell out of the carpet no matter what I did.

    I spent a couple hours in the clubhouse..I have 5 parts ready to put together on my first PC quilt. After looking at my "before and after" pictures I realized I mixed up my blocks so fixed that then added the rest of the sashing. Now I am ready to start my quilting...tomorrow I will cut the batting and backing and maybe start the quilting in the middle section.

    JeanieG ... thanks ... will have to find an occasion to make the cake! And will probably give into the topping, even though I don't need those gazillion calories. I'll just rationalize it because of the health in all the oatmeal!!

    Anael ... of course, what was I thinking? They'd need to stretch and flannel would not do that! Cute cute pics of the two and great Oma made hats! And did you ever think you'd be celebrating for the bodily functions? In all our worry and fuss over the babies, we haven't been asking about your DS/DDIL? Of course, they are worried, but how are they coping? And DDIL is she staying healthy, post-partum? Hope that with all their worries, they are not forgetting to take care of themselves too.

    MiraB ... ooooh pork crackling! haven't had that in years despite all the pork that I eat! Nice that you have a man-servant to pass you your morning waker-upper!!!! As for Honchey needing a pot of tea/coffee, heck she may need a bottle of vino for her marathon catch-up!

    DublB ... yes, get that smell dealt with before you complete the deal. Consider what it will be like once you get the heat of your summers!! ick!!!!!!!!!

    CarrieM ... better start mapping LQS' en route to Louisville! How exciting to have your PC quilt so far along!

    QE--I might be able to sneak in one or two quilt shops, but with my dad and 3 kids can't get away with too many! I know we go nearby the one that Ggal frequents (also where I retreated last fall) so might have to see if I can meet her there for a hello and hug, but otherwise not sure which shops we will stop at.

    DD so sorry to hear of your FIL's situation, that happens so often in families, it happened in mine also. When my grandmother passed away my M***** gained power of attorney over my grandfather. (sorry I can't say that word in her regard) she then went on a shopping spree spending over $10,000 in 3 months and said she couldn't afford to buy her own father orange juice so he would have to drink water. My brother and I had the power of attorney taken off her through the courts but I don't think my grandfather ever recovered from her treachory.

    Anael I posted a parcel to you today, hope it arrives safely and doesn't take too long to cross the ocean. Hope the flannel is ok..

    Back to the drawing board on uploading photos, it just failed, maybe the file is too big. Will have to sit down and read the instruction book

    CarrieM ... I'm sure your trip will be busy enough and a direct to/from drive, but one or two would better than none ... and could be the planned "pit stops" for driver breaks and kid stretches. Of course, they may have thought as to McDs etc being better choices!

    DDamsel ... it may seem as though there is nothing you can do for your DH. Being there and showing your concern and support is the best you can do and I'm sure he appreciates it. Too funny about your kids wanting to get their smells into the new 'Burb! How are the puppies doing? .... time for more pics!

    Jeanie, yes they have gained a little weight. They still are fed through a tube but they're going to try a bottle this week. Yesterday one of the nurses was busy sucking mucus out of Bram's mouth, he thought it was his pacifier. He got fed up with what she was doing, SNAP closed his mouth and started sucking So the nurse said: it's time for a bottle LOL.

    QuiltE, my DS and DDIL are doing OK considering. My DS has to start work again today. He hopes he can work out a scedule having 2 afternoons off every week. My DDIL decided to stay at home every other day because of Mick and to get some rest.

    Mirabelle, thanks so much! I'm sure the flannel is ok!

    Latest update: they're both doing ok. Last time I looked (about 1 hour ago) Bram was sleeping and Isa was awake. Tomorrow Isa will have an ultrasound to look if the Ductus is closed and if so she might come off of the ventilator too.
    I'm going to sleep now, hopefully this night will be as quiet as the nights before!
    CU all tomorrow.
