Really Random Thursday, 9/19/13

By the time you read this, I will be at 7,000 feet elevation at a quilting retreat. And it will feel like fall there, with lows predicted at 30 degrees Saturday night. Woohoo!

While the rest of the family was celebrating a birthday at Disneyland, we had this cutie for the weekend. He kept us highly entertained.

He and I walked to the nearby high school Saturday morning where Grandpa was refereeing a football game. He enjoyed blowing the whistle.
We had lunch with his Nana and Papa (great-grandparents).
I hugged him as often as he would let me.
During naptime we would clean this up, so he could enjoy taking it all out again.
Who needed to see the "characters" at Disneyland? We had our own little character.
Oh, I did some sewing too. I made a veritable bevy of lined drawstring bags. They were each super cute.

I planned on photographing them all together once they were completed. I remembered the whole picture business as I was getting ready to pack this last one up for shipping. Cute, right? You would have enjoyed seeing the others too....

And now it's your turn.

What a cutie!! I wouldn't get anything done if he was around. Amazed you were able to sew. Sure don't miss the days of toys everywhere.

You definitely got the better end of the bargain!!!! What a cutie. Sure hope he let you get lots of hugs in. I'm so happy (and honored) that one of your bevy of bags ended up in my mailbox! Enjoy your retreat.
