Swimming and Embroidery

Not too much happening here, but I'm trying to blog more. Madelyn and I went swimming her Aunt Cheryl Sunday. Madelyn had a great time. She kicked and splashed for quite some time. I then held her on her stomach like she was swimming. She held her head up like the big girl she is already become.

Isn't she just the cutest ever?!?!

I've gotten some embroidery done. I have actually bought some appliqué fonts and started do that some.

A burp cloth I made for Emma. The E is appliqué and her name is just embroidered. I downloaded the name from Free Name Library . They have every name you can imagine spelt anyway you can think of. The best part, it's free!!

I made the burp cloth and appliquéd/embroidered it. Ignore the mess around it. That is my scrap table that I can't seem to find cause stuff keeps getting piled on top of it.

July so far

July's been a pretty busy month. We kicked it off at the beach. Thanks to our wonderful host, the Youngs. Company was great, food was better!! We left home early Friday morning so that we were there in time to see the fireworks show that evening. They live in just the right place so we were able to see Pensacola Beach fireworks and Santa Rosa (I think that was the second place) show. We were surrounded by fireworks! It was lots of fun.

That's Madelyn watching the fireworks show. Her Grandmother made the flag dress for her. She didn't really care about the fireworks, she actually went to sleep not long after the picture.

Saturday we headed to the beach. The water was a bit cool, so we didn't let Madelyn get in. She slept in her stroller on the beach. Rio doesn't do the beach but had to go, so he sat up with Madelyn. Blake and Chandler went with us as well. Chandler really enjoyed the water once he let go of the death grip he had on his daddy.

If you look you can see Chandler waving at Wesley.

While we were swimming Wesley and Tot saw a fin. Their first thought was shark, turned out it was dolphins. We watched for a while and saw several. Further out than the first ones we saw some jumping. It was neat to watch.

We came home Sunday and had a good relaxing trip!!

I've gotten quite a bit of embroidery done. I have to change computers to upload pictures of my stuff. If you have myspace check out the pictures there. Misty's Myspace (you have to be my friend to see my pictures, so if you arent my friend send me a request!!) I'll try to get pictures uploaded later tonight or tomorrow.

Madelyn has begun making lots of noises and responding with sounds when we talk to her. It is the cutest sound ever!! I'm going to try to remember to video it next time.

it's a long one

I've been meaning to blog for quite sometime now, but every time I thought about it I wasn't where I could upload pictures and boy do I have some pictures.

Since my last blog Brother and Gina came to visit for our class reunion. Yes my Brother and I graduated together. No we are not twins. I am only 10 months older and my birthday was late so I had to wait to start. We also graduated with 3 1st cousins. Brother and Gina got in on Thursday night. We went out to eat then hung out for a little bit. I had to work Friday so we didn't get to hang out too long. Brother and Gina, with the help of Lauren, kept Madelyn Friday.

That is Brother givin MK what I'm sure is great advice!

Friday night we ate spaghetti at Grandma's then headed back to Troy for some fun times at the Double Branch (a local bar for you whores that didn't know).

The first pictures are the girls. I'm not sure of the order cause I'm not looking at the picture, but Me, Jess, Gina and Nickie. The second is the guys, again not so sure of the order Brother, Joseph, Wesley, Geoffry and Blake.

Saturday we headed back to Opp to get ready for the reunion. I was on the planning committee and Brother was our class President. I don't have many pictures from the picnic cause I had to empty my memory card on Brother's laptop and he hasn't sent them to me yet.

The planning committee... Kerri, Amy, Me and Allison. None of which were class officers!!

Classmates that attended the evening event.

We had a great time. It was good catching up with old friends. We've mostly reconnected via mypsace or facebook so hopefully the next 10 years won't be so out of touch.

We also went to the beach/the Young's house (my cousin) for the 4th. I'll blog about it later.

I'll leave you with a picture of Madelyn Kate and her cute little smile that lights up her entire face, and mine!!
