Busy in May

In May, Nathan and I went to a balloon festival nearby. We met friends there and had a great time.

Love the crab!

The moon was amazing that night.

Only one gman went to prom, and he went with his friend way back from PreK. 

They looked so good together in blue.

Look at that rainbow of colours!

Next event was the boys last indoor football game. They won every game but one, and they missed that one!

Then came the trip to the Baltimore Zoo with Nathan's class.
These little guys are adorable.

At least he's taller than a penguin!

I have a love/hate feeling towards the zoo - love seeing the animals, but hate to see them caged. This precious boy looks like he really doesn't want to be there.

The giraffe seemed happy though.

And OMGoodness, these guys were too cute!

Beautiful Caribbean Flamingos.

Here's Joyful World for May - trying to match Max, not the best but it will do. 

I used beads for his eyes, but not quite sure about them. Looks kind of spooky... thoughts?

That's it for May - next time, Graduation!

WOW, it's a PEEP show!

Nathan and I spent one afternoon following the peeps...
 And this is where it led us!

So many creative peeps, but I really liked this one. Although I think they should be stitching, not knitting!

This wasn't all the displays, but there was plenty to see.

Saved the best for last...

Maybe I should submit these two next year?

Time flies when you're having fun!

Guess I've had fun, it's been a while since I've posted!

In April, the gmen celebrated their 18th birthday. When did that happen?!
My mil signed up to have their birthday announced at school, I had to "threaten" them to pose for me!

Then I met Karen in North Carolina to celebrate her birthday. Our mid-way meet was in Elm City, at a sweet bed and breakfast.

We stitched and stitched, 
and had a Miranda marathon! Such fun, such fun!

May brought the annual stitching weekend at St. Michaels with DJ and friends. A storm rolled in while we were there, awesome to see close up!
 We did an ornament exchange - lucky me, I received DJ's, the one on the lower left, love it! I made the tiny ones, the Rudolph sweater that I didn't think would be so small, and the hanging wish list.
Already looking forward to next year with this group.
How cool, I found the ducks to match the Sunflower Diaries: Joyful World!
And on that note, I'll catch you later!

A Hodgepodge of fun and even some stitching!

DH had a guys night, fraternity brothers from Georgia Tech days,

So I had a girls night!
Cori and family came over for dinner and we had a great night.
Quick, goofy pose!

I knew this kid was trouble! 
Thank goodness were were only visiting with the cub scouts.

I did have a lovely girls day at the Woodlawn Needlework Exhibit, too bad we weren't allowed to take pictures inside.
This is actually the front of the house, although you enter from the back.

And we got to go to In Stitches!

With Elizabeth and DJ!

The Easter egg hunt with the cousins. 245 eggs hidden, they each had their own colour. My nephew turned 18 in December so he had to find the camo green eggs!
And this sneaky chick? She was a former CSI officer, she knew how to hide eggs!

I did get some stitching done... 
Maja's Joyful World
I changed some of the colours and added beads and sparkle. I think April is my favourite so far.

I decided to make these for my Mother (who's German), for Christmas.

And here's May, I was trying to figure out Ming's colouring so I could make the cat like her!

That's it for now, more to come after I catch up reading your blogs!
