Way Behind and a Quick Catch Up

I'm just a little behind on blogging, I can't seem to get back in the groove.  I also can't seem to catch up on my blog reading, I miss google reader!  I like Feedly I guess and it will have to do. 

We've got way too much going on here trying to find a place to rent.  But I believe our search is over, we just have to sign a lease and move in!  I know what I'm going to be doing this week and it won't be stitching.

Here's a shortened version of what's been going on...
 
Making cappuccino ice cream.  
 
My chosen sister, Karen, eating said ice cream!
 
Stitching with Karen.
 
Max not impressed with the Alaskan puppy!
 
Having fun at our friend's party at the lake.

Celebrating Gammy's birthday with a smoothie.
 
Celebrating DH's birthday with his sugar cookie "cake".

Enjoying a yummy frozen drink at the Old Mill Bakery CafĂ© with my gmen and nephews.
 
Seeing a mermaid in Ellicott City!
 
Disturbing display at the antique store.
  
Nathan lost his first tooth and unfortunately swallowed it!  The tooth fairy made up for it when he left a picture of a tooth for her. 

Coming up on the next post - The "Count your Blessings" travelling pattern is ready for its next stop, could it be heading your way?!

Nathan takes after his auntie for photo posing! The Gmen don't look so impressed LOL.
My son lost a tooth in the playground and the dinner lady wrote a note for the tooth fairy as proof!

Astrid,
Wow you have been busy and you got some stitching in which is more than I can say at this point.

We are finally in our new home. We are unpacking and wondering where this or that will go. Whew so glad as it took us 5 months. I wish you lots of luck on your move.

I really love your color change for Count your blessings. Nicely done!

Hugs,
Carolyn
