- Mother's Day: Ben and Timmy picked out some beautiful roses online and had them delivered to me the Friday before. That was so sweet!! On Mother's Day, Ben declared it "Mama's Day" and I wasn't allowed to cook or anything. Tim thought it should be "Timmy Day." Even at our lunch time prayer, he said "Thank you that it is Timmy Day." What a goof!
- Fabric Row in Philadelphia. Check out my sister's blog for how it went. I really enjoyed spending time with my grandma, mom and sis. It was super that Ben was so willing to watch the kids all day.
- Stake Relief Society service project: We are making quilts with flags on them for the servicemen and women recovering at Walter Reed Hospital. I volunteered to piece a top (already cut out) before the Saturday activity. Then on Saturday, I volunteered to bring one home to finish. It only took me two weeks to finish it!
- We welcomed little Emma Grace home! My niece finally came home from the hospital after being there nearly six months. She was born premature at 25 weeks and only 1 pound, 10 ounces. I think that I will forever be amazed that something so tiny actually can survive with help from modern medicine and, of course, Heavenly Father. Tim declared that Emma was home finally because of all the prayers he said for her. He rarely let a prayer slip by without remembering and reminding us if we forgot. She is about 7 pounds in the picture.
- A recent Ikea trip: We had not been in a couple years and this was the first time we could drop Tim off at the play area. He had fun and we could zoom through a lot faster. I really enjoy roaming the maze they have looking at all the fun rooms, etc., but we rarely buy anything. The designs are cool, but, to me, the quality is questionable. We have a dresser from there bought when Tim was born that is broken in two places now. If we had never moved it, it would be just fine. I guess it's been moved four times now. It's not real wood, of course. This trip we bought two pieces of furniture: a small bookcase for Carolina's room and a long table for our front hall. I had been dying for these types of pieces for a long time. And I love them! Carolina now can pick out her own books to read.
