Sewing therapy

It's Friday afternoon and I'm FREEEEE!  I get to spend time with my sewing machine.  I didn't realize how much time I spent sewing until I got a job and can't do it except on Saturdays.  It is Halloween costume season and I have one more to make.  Rylee needs a basketball costume.  I wish I had taken pictures of the other kids costumes.  They were so much fun to make.  Oh well, hopefully we will get pictures as they wear them when they go 'trick or treating'. 

Gary is home, Thank goodness.  He came home sick, but he is home.  He had a great time and below are a few of the pictures that were taken while he was in Alaska.  Many thanks to the Call Family for showing him a good time and for having such adorable children.  Oh and thank you Heavenly Father for providing a grizzly bear for all to see.  It truly was a wonderful gift and an experience that will never be forgotten.

Gary goes to visit the Calls in Alaska

It's another Friday evening and I am sitting here all alone.  Reminds me of the days when I was a teenager and I didn't have a date for the weekend, which was most of the time.   Gary is in Alaska visiting Kerri and meeting Forrest for the first time.  He called today to fill me in on the weekend plans.  They get to go to Denali tomorrow.  I'm so glad he gets this opportunity.  I hope someday I will get to go sight seeing.  My trips usually consists of homemaking  things cause I'm the Mom.  Which is all good.  At least I'm needed once in a while.  But it would be nice to travel for fun.  Maybe when I grow up.

Thank goodness for Seminary.  I get to do something I absolutely enjoy.  Now that I have a job I can afford to buy fun treats for the kids on game day and not feel guilty about it.  It's great to learn so much about the Old Testament. 

I really don't think anyone reads this blog anymore.  But I need to keep track of my daily life so I will continue to make notes each week.  I'm feeling a bit lonely so I don't want to write anymore today because it will just sound negative. This is suppose to be my Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy time, a time to reflect on everything that is so wonderful in my life.  I did, however, have alot of fun sewing costumes for Kaci and Forrest.  This year Kaci wanted to be a Butterfly.  Forrest will be by her side as a caterpillar.  I have a blast conjuring up costumes for my grand children.  Right now I am preparing to make a dress for Lilan, She will be Repunzel (Tangled version) this year. Nate and Mason requested Optimus Prime and BumbleBee...those costumes will  be purchased this skills are limited when it comes to  Transformers.  So much fun...And with that I will close....til next time.
