Whole Family Crafting on Super Bowl Sunday!

This picture isn't the greatest but John took this of the girls and I "crafting" while the guys watched the Super Bowl. Not very flattering for the 3 of us but we didn't even know he took it until after the fact! All the way to the left is me, in the middle is Jenny and on the right is Megan. Megan was doing her counted cross-stitch project, Jenny was asking me a question about her baby sweater she is knitting and I was answering her while trying to take out a mistake she had made. Before undoing the row Jenny had just knitted, I was working on the baby blanket for my co-worker. We are very "crafty" women! My one and half chair is always where it is in its corner by the fireplace but the guys moved the wicker chairs in front of the fireplace for the girls so we could all be together. I really think they did that so we wouldn't bother them with their game-LOL!!

Since the Super Bowl I have finally completed the co-workers baby blanket and will be giving it to him next Monday. Jenny had a snag with her baby sweater but I got it straightened out for her now and it is going along great. Megan got alot more done on her counted cross-stitch project too!

It was a "priceless" moment for me having my girls and their men with John and I enjoying some crafting, football and some good times! Of course, there was alot of good food to go around too!

Sherri, I love this photo. It reminds me of those scenes in the Victorian movies where you have the ladies enjoying their activities in the drawing rooms while the man talked business...LOL. Too cute! How could you concentrate on the game and handling needles?! :) I can't wait to hear about the co-workers baby blanket. I think you"ll have a bawling fest on your hands.

Sigh... I'm so happy for you. I wish I could get my kids home here together. It's been such a long time that we were all together.

Oh that's so funny! My husband and daughter have been crocheting flowers and I have been attempting lace - Not on SuperBowl night, but earlier!
So cool!

Megan really needed that light over her cause counted cross stitch makes my eyes cross. That is a lovely picture of all you crafty women.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
