PUMPKINS for Cathey!

This post is to celebrate Cathey's blogoversary and her love of pumpkins - my kind of gal!  What better way is there to get into the pumpkin spirit by checking out all the posts dedicated to her via Daffycat.

Wishing you all the best, Cathey, I hope you have a very special day today enjoying all the pumpkins.  Continued prayers to your health and strength for each day.
Pink Pumpkins for the cure

I knew this was missing something... a little pumpkin!

Hugs and stitches, Astrid

Finally, a Finish!!!

It only took me all summer, but I finally finished March... with a little help from my friends!
Of course I had to change some of the colours, I didn't like the brown and green lettering so I chose the purple and blue, more spring like.  I also had to include the Welsh Dragon since St. David's Day is March 1st.
Later today I need to ransack look through my stash to start April's garden.  I hope I can find it in all these boxes, wish me luck!

The boys have been keeping us busy with the gmen playing football and Nathan starting Cub Scouts.  The gmen's team have won two out of three games, big improvement from last year!

 DH and Nathan got to go camping in the rain on Saturday and Nathan loved it!  When they came back home on Sunday, he wanted to set up the tent so he could sleep in it again.  Darn, too bad it was a school night!

Zipline Footage and Moving Fun

Finally, here it is, the Travel Channel Ziprider at Icy Strait Point
Check us out at 00:15 minutes, we're the ones going down into the clouds!
Then check us out at 1:22 minutes, we're standing at the back of the line, I'm wearing my pink hooded jacket and the gmen are in front of me.  Not sure why this one came later, we were in line waiting to go down!

Pic of us going downnnnnn
The reason I haven't been reading blogs, writing blogs or stitching?  We FINALLY moved!
Nothing like having friends come over to help pack and move us out.  I think these two were having way too much fun, all I heard was laughing!

Two of the gmen's friends helped us too, doesn't hurt to have four football players moving furniture and boxes! 

Caravan of vehicles full of our goodies.

Now the rest of the fun begins, unloading.

We've settled in, but still have lots some boxes to go through.  We've even had a visitor come say hello.

Ming wishing she could go out and play.
I've actually been able to stitch in the evening while watching Army Wives on Netflix on my phone.  We moved in on the 1st and Comcast was scheduled to come that afternoon.  They actually came early and ready to set us up, only to find out that the house wasn't wired for Comcast, only Verizon.  Bummer!  To make a long story short, Comcast came and put the wires in and then didn't come back when they told me they were coming.  I found out we were never scheduled and someone would call me back ASAP.  That was Thursday early afternoon and I'm still waiting.  In the meantime, Verizon came today and set us up which was great, but then found out we don't get BBC America.  WHAT?!  We would get it only if we downgrade and lose channels or upgrade and pay more.  Not a happy camper at the moment.  Really wish there was a third option, both of their customer service sucks!  And that was the shortened version!
