A weekend trip, Gift Stash, A Wedding and A Baby!

Here's a bit about what going on in my world. Just a little knitting but no pictures of that because it's a gift. My hours have changed at work now so I actually get to see my DH, Terrence for more than 5 minutes per day. It's been really nice.

Here's the baby pictures! Terrence's DD, Jaide had her first baby a few weeks ago. He's such a cutie! Just look at proud Grampa holding him for the first time. Now he spends his weekends looking for toys to buy him. Already picked out a crane to put together. I think he'll have to wait a few years for that one.

My niece, Alicia got married last week. Her new hubby is a Marine so they squeezed the wedding in when they could. Don't they look so cute together? They had the wedding over looking the ocean in Palos Verdes area where we all grew up. So beautiful! And such a perfect evening. He is stationed in
San Diego so that's not too far from us. Alicia is the same age as my Rachel (20) so it really seems amazing that our babies are getting married!
This is our So Cal version of our family, except for DH, Terrence who had to work. On the far left is Rick, my nephew, who is in the Air Force. He just left a few days ago for Japan. He will be there for 2 years I think. Hopefully we can go visit him there. I know he's excited!

And finally...

I just had to show off what I ordered when I received my 50.00 gift from Cathe
y on her blog Pumpkin Patch & Co for her blogoversary. I ordered some LittleHouse Needleworks and Country Cottage charts and one Shepards Bush.

Thank you again so much Cathey!!!! I can't wait to begin stitching!!!

This is from when my friend, Carol & I went to Santa Ynez for the weekend. we visited a lavendar farm. This picture is of Carol posing, see the Statue of Liberty behind her? LOL The fragrance is just heavenly!
