Today is my middle nephew's 11th birthday ... Happy Birthday Matthew!

Here are a few great pictures of him....

I wish I had a better picture of Matty, but when he was little, his hair was AWESOME! It was so fuzzy and just stood up and it was adorable!

See ... Matthew was a cool dude before he was even a year old!!!
Love your eyes Matthew! Matty had the best hair, the biggest brown eyes and the chubbiest cheeks!
Oh yeah, ready for a fun-filled day!
Matthew and Murphy ... what a great combination :O)
This is Matthew in training ... he is getting ready so when he's much bigger he can learn to ride Uncle Dave's Harley ...
Bubbles ... bubbles ... bubbles ... Matthew having a great time in Nene's bathtub
Off to school ...
Matthew and Uncle Dave ... see, that's the Harley he's gonna teach you on :O)
Matthew and puppy Shortstop
Trick - or - Treat ...
Matthew is a funny funny boy and can always make you laugh :O) He's smart, on the chess club at school and excellent in Soccer!

Goodies In The Mail

Happy Holidays ... Happy Holidays ... look at the goodies I received in the mail yesterday from one of my schools. It was a basket filled with cookies and candy and chocolate covered pretzels ... it is delicious!

It's from a shop in New York called Perfect Endings Bakery.

I hope everyone is getting their Christmas projects finished and all ready for the big day! I know I have one thing to complete and i don't think that's gonna happen ... however, my shopping and wrapping is done, cookies are baked and all is well in Ohio ... now if it would just SNOW!

Have a great week-end everyone!

Brrrrr . . . . .

Hi Everyone! Happy Thursday! I have nothing new to post, but it sure is COLD here in Northwest Ohio! At noon today it was 13 degrees and the wind chill is 8 below! I am so staying inside in my jammies today! When hubby leaves for work i am going to pound out some cleaning, get some laundry going and then while i watch Survivor i'm going to wrap Christmas presents!

Hope you are having a warm and toasty day :O)

Betsy's Runner

Hi Everyone! Happy Sunday! Here in my part of Ohio it is a very mild and sunny day. High in the upper 30's but lots of sunshine!

I haven't done a whole lot of sewing that i can show because the holidays are upon us, but here is a picture of the table runner I made for my SIL. It turned out so cute and i think it looks much better in person!

And here's a picture of the boys' dog ... Shortstop ... isn't he just a ham :O)
Probably won't have much to post this week unless i get working on my December Schnibble, so until then, have a wonderful week!
