Today we celebrated my MIL's 70th birthday. The event went better than I expected. I believe everyone had a good time. This is only part of the crew.

If you look closely to the family picture - the beautiful girl in the white shirt is due in about a month. She's having a another girl. Her other children are the two boys kneeling and the little girl in the blue/purple coat.

And we have a new addition to the family!

Aiden James - 8lbs 10 oz and 19.5" long. He is our step-great-nephew from my FIL's side of the family. Believe me - there isn't a post long enough to describe the family genealogy!

Well, if I am to get any stitching done this evening I better put the floss through the needle!

Have a wonderful weekend, and be sure to laugh as much as you stitch, and love more than you sew! (these words were given to me by Mary Jane - isn't she brilliant?)

Much as I'm enjoying the "brilliant" description, I must give credit where credit is due. The lovely thoughts in your sign off are actually from Jenny of Elefantz, a designer of amazing embroidery designs. I do love her wishes, thouggh!

Great finishes and family photos. New babies - God's promise that the world should go on. (Again not original, I'm afraid. Gee - I must be boring on my own, haha!)
