Red, White and Blue!

Hello, Dear Readers! Are you still out there? I certainly hope so! I apologize for my absence and hope to get you caught up on the happenings from the past two months in my next posts. From our DGD Kelsey's dance recital in May, to our Mediterranean cruise, family reunion and camping in June to now, July! Wow, no wonder I'm tired!

Anyway,I hope everyone had a safe, fun and relaxing Independence Day! We had rain showers off and on all weekend which put a damper on some of the fireworks displays around here.

To catch up on the past months, I'll start with a few pictures of Kelsey and her dance recital. These are from their dress rehearsal, Kelsey is the blond in the middle in the first picture. They tapped and sang to "Take Me Out to the Ballgame", were they ever cute!

Here's pictures her grandpa took at the recital:

And afterwards, a tired little dancer!

Happy Mother's Day!!

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! I hope you are all enjoying a great day with your families.

Where did April go? And here it is almost mid-May! I'm sorry that I haven't posted in so long and I really don't have an excuse except that life got in the way.

We took our RV to the Ozarks in mid-April and I celebrated my birthday while we were gone. It was the first long trip we'd taken with the RV, and only the 3rd outing. DH got some practice in backing, as had to back down a road and into our campsite!

Last weekend we spent at The Elms in Excelsior Springs. MO. Our two daughters had given my DH a gift certificate for a stay there when he retired...what a lovely resort! It has quite a history as was where President Truman stayed when he was awaiting election results. There's a spa in the resort and I opted for a "Rejuvenating Hand Treatment"! The massage was wonderful as was the paraffin wax treatment. I have arthritis in my hands so the treatment was really a treat!

Now to the stitching: I finished another Little House ornament design..........Pear Tree. It was a fun stitch!

This next picture is of the block I received at my stitch group exchange. It's a design by primitivebetty. I want to finish it into a pincushion someday!

Until next time, I wish you Happy Stitching!
