Beth and Matt at the Prom
Mood:  bright
Topic: Family


 

My 17 year old, Beth went to her first Prom on Saturday night. Didn't she look just beautiful?  My older daughter Jackie's former college roomate, Aquila had the sari made for us last summer while she was home visiting India. Beth lived in Pakistan until she was three and we wanted to show off her Indian beauty!  Matt's (her date) mom researched the internet to find the correct type of flowers to go with her dress and they were wonderful, several types of orchids and grasses.  Beth had a fantastic time and is just now catching up on all the sleep she missed.

New Friend
Mood:  energetic
Topic: Family
I am picking up a new play mate on Sunday. We are adopting a Rescued Great Pyrenees, named Dolby. Ins't he just the cutest thing?  Great Pyrenees are wonderful


alpaca guard dogs. Dolby is going to be a family pet but it's nice to know he'll be around with the alpacas if we are gone for a few hours.

Hi to my dear friend, Melanie.  Hope your trip is going well, that you get some rest and have a safe flight home. You and Sarah have a wonderful time at Maryland Sheep and Wool!  I'll be thinking about you!

2007 Christmas Trees
Mood:  incredulous
Topic: Family

I had an opportunity to visit not only the National Tree in Washington, DC on New Year's Eve but, the Rockefeller Center Tree in Manhattan, NY the week before Christmas. I think this year was the nicest Christmas I have ever had.  Thank you, Jackie!

The girls didn't  have school yesterday. Wayne was able to take a day off so we headed to Niagara Falls. None of the girls had seen it before and had a great time.  We did the trip down below the Falls and got soaked! Right to left: Sierra, Gail, Katie, Beth, Brandi and Wayne in back.  It was a long day but good fun.

Native American Support Projects
Mood:  lazy
Topic: Family

Happy 2007 everyone! This picture is my four daughters and my granddaughter Onya giving you their "Cindy Lou Who" look. Right now I'm working on some shawls , different styles but all in the Fan and Feather pattern. I'm teaching a Prayer Shawl class at Knitter's Fantasy (a large all day knitting show in Warren, OH) on April 14th and I'm busy knitting up samples for it.

 

Just finished a Five Hour Baby Sweater set for the Cheyenne  River Indian Reservation. My yahoo group, Native American Support:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NativeAmericanSupport/  is doing a sweater drive for the reservation. I've decided to make baby outfits to send to the reservation WIC program.

Back from Disney
Mood:  bright
Topic: Family

Just got back from our long awaited trip to Disney World. Look who we ran into at the Magic Kingdom!

The girls had a fantastic time and we loved staying at the Port Orleans Hotels. Below are more pictures of our vacation. The weather was nice and sunny but, cool enough so we could enjoy running around the parks!

Hey Cathi,

I added a picture of you, Mel and Missy Michelle. This was at our good bye dinner for Dylan (he was a 4 year old foster child we had).  I love this picture of you guys!  For everyone else's info Cathi is now a beautiful red head with lovely blond and caramel highlights.
