    YAY!! I can't believe I won. Thank you!

    Also, just a quick update... my son's surgery went so much better than we expected, and his recovery is going a lot smoother than we thought. He's still a little sore, but still not as bad as we thought. And, he's actually excited to have a "magic button" he can be fed through when he doesn't feel like eating or drinking. Hopefully, we'll get some good weight on this kid once his site heals (which will increase his life expectancy, which we are grateful for.) Thank you again for all your support.

    Thanks a 'dot' for the candies SheriR! btw Fraew took her candies seriously! (Giggle). Question for you all - how do you sort your candies for use? So far I have been doing lights and darks in the same color famly for a quilt top I am doing. Is there another way?

    Sorry Ladies that I haven't been on in a week.
    Parent stuff...let's just say when they are 91 and 86...they shouldn't be driving. Both still are!
    Michigan winters are hard enough to drive in for people with reflexes!


    anyway everyone is okay but now I have talked them in to driving in a 3 mile square radius of house...I have become the driver. Don't mind just trying to juggle a lot right now. (by the way I pray everyday for the people in the 3 mile radius)

    I will send February birthday out tonight....they are both on February 3rd so I hope you are all ready for them!

    Thanks
    Barb
    Stay warm.

    Oh Barbara, my heart goes out to you.....I had to go back to Colorado (from St. Louis) to get my parents to move them to St. Louis as they had nobody around.....when I sold their car I sat out on the porch for 5 hours because my Mother was so furious with me..... my father was legally blind and my mother was very impatient at stop signs and I too worried about the other drivers. My brother (in Arizona) ridiculed us (my husband agreed with me) but I never regretted our decision and KNOW we did the right thing.....but it was not easy! I send you many hugs

    As for the February birthdays.....gitter done!!!

    It has been a FUN journey

    Thanks Marybrace....I appreciate that....I have 7 siblings that do help out when they can. 4 of them live out of state so when they do come to town I pretty much let them take over with my parents. Everyone thinks they shouldn't drive but no one is doing anything about it but me. I have two sisters that live about 10 minutes from my parents but they both have school age kids and so they are "busy". I know that I am blessed to have my parents in my life so for now...just gonna do what I can. someday I won't have the privilege.
    Glad you enjoyed the journey...sorry to see you go MaryEllen

    I know!!! She's the mailing speedster!!! I snuck a peek to make sure it wasn't a delivery for my swap lol. Hubby said it looked like a birthday present.

    Barb, you have been such a great hostess. I can't believe the swaps been going a year! It helped to have them all cut, packaged, and ready for addresses! It has really been fun. Although I'm glad 2013 is over. Not a great year for me.

    Barb I am with you on being grateful that my parents are still with me. My dad had brain surgery last Friday and it was touch and go for a while. He is home snd recovering well but it adds to my already high stress level ( still trying to find a job!!!) . Anyway great candies and chocolate from WMUTeach and great candies from quiltingdragon. I have Darcene and SheriR birthday candies ready to go for Saturday mail!
