The big 6th birthday party ...Ninjago style
The College graduate..
I found some time to recreate the vintage crocheted Pansy. Mine was a bit bigger as I need to find a smaller hook for the size 80 tatting thread. The woman who made the original was an amazing crafter, her crocheting is meticulous!!
The big 6th birthday party was a huge success. Tiring but a success!! The little guy was just so excited!
To top it off my son Dominic graduated from Kutztown University with a degree in Elementary education. We are so extremely proud of him and his hard work and achievements. He is truly an amazing young man. It seemed like just yesterday we dropped him off at school and I was receiving phone calls a half hour later that he was homesick ...horribly homesick for the first year and a half!!! He never gave up though and found his place and had a wonderful college career. Its good to have him home though!
And I'm a little bit (scratch that )a lot a bit tired and under the weather with my allergies...Its so bad here with pollen in NJ !! I have a remedy though ..boil some water (for about 15 minutes to cure it) in a thermos add 5-8 fennel seeds, 1 tsp ground fresh ginger and lime juice and sip on this all day. It is great for relieving congestion.
Well, I"m off to lay my head down and maybe make another pansy or two . We have another big weekend ahead. A trip to Upstate NY to be with my husband's family for our annual Memorial day get together.
Have a great holiday and enjoy, whether it be filled with Little or Big moments they fill our hearts just the same.
