December Basic Grey Class

These are the layouts from the December Basic Grey class at the Scrapbook Oasis. Altantis is a great resort and if you ever get a chance to go to the island of Nasau, check it out. Next time we go, I am definatiely going to take advantage of the water parks!
Rebecca designed the next two layouts using the leftovers from the kits and here they are with my touches!
Don't look now but here is my Pat horseing around with the seal.
And finally pictures of my Anthony at Disney's California Advenure.

Happy Birthday Anthony

Today my baby turns 21! Where have the years gone? Here Anthony is as a wee tot still sleeping in a crib!
Where is Anthony? Oh there he is, in the middle of the all those balls.
Anthony said a poem about a hot dog in one of his elementary school assemblies.
Here is a young Anthony and a young Butter playing on the dirt mounds. This was when we were having the brick wall installed at the house.
Any clue where Anthony was this day? Disneyland - at the deadliest ride in the wilderness!
I love this picture of my Anthony. It was taken in San Francisco. Doesn't he look like a model here! He is soo handsome!
Happy Birthday Anthony!!

Introducing Kobe!

Kobe is a miniature pincher and belongs to Bree and Gino. We are babysitting until they get their place.
I have nicknamed him Barkus Lalotus. As you can guess, he is quite the barker!

His mommy purchased this outfit to go riding in the Camero. Umm . . . I don't think he is too pleased with the outfit. Could it be that it doesn't fit too well?
Here Barkus Lalotus, err I mean Kobe is next to the LB, err I mean Sarge. You can see how petite Koby is next to Sarge.

Dear Ms. McFarlane

It is not every day that a mother gets a letter from the Marine Corps. I received an envelope today from the base in San Diego where my son is station. I opened it not knowing what to expect. I had never received a letter before. It was the Marine Corps bragging on my boy!
He was awarded (for the 2nd time no less) the Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal! Congratulations son, we are proud of you!

Latest Quilt Creation

Here is Mr. Turtle. I don't really want to give him a true name as he won't be staying long. He is a gift for a girlfriend of mine. I think I can spill the beans here as I don't think the receipent reads my blog. Kari commissioned me to make her grandmother a turtle quilt. I hope she loves it!
