Busy Week!

Garrett leading us in his birthday song!

Granddaughters at Trunk or Treat

Since Garrett won't be here for Thanksgiving or his birthday, we gave him a surprise going away party!  The worse of the weather held off most of the day - which we were thankful for!

Some of the items I have for sale at Little Shoppes in Washington, NC.  My crafts are really a "HodgePodge".  Here are some of the wine glasses I have painted as well as a pillow I made.

A Christmas Quilt I made as well as lap trays and different sizes of totes that I have painted on.  Sunday, I added some ornaments that have either snowmen or elves on them.  To personalize, there is room to add names to your ornaments.

Finished this last night and put on a little hanger I had.  I am signed up to take "Starch Applique 2.0" next week.

Photos from our trip to Florida for the 12U Softball World Series

As teams were eliminated their sign would be removed.  Pitt County has won nine times so their sign kept getting moved toward the back!

Some parents had banners of their daughters made prior to the game.  These banners were hung throughout the ballpark.

"OK, I've got it!"

"I see it!"


At bat

Girls enjoyed Sunday afternoon at a natural spring.

Pitt County Girls Softball Team headed to World Series!

Happy team of girls from Pitt County!  Headed to the airport to fly to Florida.  The 12U World Series will be held in Alucha, Florida again this year.  PCGSL has won the title nine times!  One reason why Greenville, NC is known as Sports Town USA.

Rained so much that the field is a mess!  Better today than yesterday, though

Bri trying to catch a wild throw!  Softballs are hard to throw when wet.

12U 2nd Place State Champs

Happy Girl!  8U Bri standing in line to get her trophy.

Bri won the Barbara ??? trophy for the 8Us

8U State Champs!

Madison - 2nd Place Champ - 12U, Bri - 1st Place Champ - 8U and Coach (Dad) for 8Us.  Both teams went into the loser's bracket last night.  Madison's team came back today to win their first game (12U).  8U played three games today - the hotest day of the year to come in first place.  Proud of my granddaughters and son-in-law for working as hard as they did!!!

Go team!
