Happy Birthday to my baby brother!

Isn't he the cutest thing you've ever seen? This was many years ago but as you can see from the 2nd picture below Steve hasn't changed much in all these years. He still has the cutest baby face... he just has a beard now. :) This is Steve with his little namesake Stevie. Happy birthday to my precious brother who I love bunches!!!

I woke up to the picture below this morning so anybody that knows me will tell you that I don't drive on these kind of roads. I worked from home today & was thankful that I brought home work yesterday. Can you tell what this mysterious object is from the picture? Yes it's my new sewing machine! I've had it for a few days & it's been staring at me from the dining room table. I haven't even opened the box until tonight. Here's a better picture of it. Isn't it pretty? I've had some serious thoughts lately about being crafty & making things & I figured a sewing machine is a good start. I had no problem threading the bobbin & putting the thread through the needle but when it came time to pull the bobbin thread up to meet the needle thread, I almost lost it! I seriously think a man made up the way to do this as some evil plot to drive us women crazy! I finally figured it out & now I'm ready to create stuff! :) If you're lucky I'll post a pic of my very first creation. Here's a shot of the needle thread & the bobbin thread playing nicely together. :)

Ethan's Birthday

We celebrated Ethan's 21st birthday today & we were honored to be a part of it. Ethan is such an amazing guy who has made some really awesome choices in his life. We are all so proud of him & wish him the best in his life! :) Of course this gave the family an opportunity to get together & have food! haha I am seriously so thankful for our family. Here are a few pics from the day. Here's Ethan & Katherine Caiden wanted to help Ethan open his presents. Caleb with his Daddy Little Jack Memaw with Jack Caiden playing his harmonica Jonah & Caiden playing the piano together.

Tonight Mom & I were invited to Linda & Melvin's for dinner. Katie made their tasty pasta shells & salad. It was delicious! And we hadn't seen them all week, so it was nice to visit with the Musgroves. :) And Bethany & Caiden were there as well. Here's cute lil Caiden Caiden acting silly with his Nana Caiden with his very own little "laptop" One more pic of Caiden with Memaw. :) Can you tell that I loooove this kid? Oh joy tomorrow is Friday!!!! And I have a three day weekend!

This is a picture of much younger days! Linda, me, Steve, & Allen all dressed up & probably going to Sunday School. Isn't Steve so cute in his little bowtie? Mom showed me this picture today & I thought it would be fun to post it for all eyes to see. :) I can sure see the resemblance between some of the children & grandchildren in the family & us when we were little. Funny how genes work. :)
