Football 2015... and some stitching

Yes, I know it's 2016, but I'm a little behind on posting. So here's a "quick" run through - 

Proud Dad, we can't believe it's over already!

  Just because he's seven minutes older, he thinks he can push him around! 

My "triplets"!

Senior pics, I was included since I'm a team mom.

Our other son, San!

Senior night with the family.

Couldn't have done it without this other wonderful team mom!

Award night.

The cheerleaders gave the football players the candy pots and I made them the football earrings. I also made some for the JV team and all the team moms.

And we made it to a professional game - the Saints vs the Redskins! At least there were other Saints fans, so I wasn't quite alone. Too bad they lost, but what a beautiful day for a game!

Finally, stitchy stuff! This is what I made for the  autumn needlebook exchange in the Friendly Stitchers. It was my first one and thankfully I had DJ to help me! I like the inside and back, but I think I could have done better with the front. There's always next time.

I finally finished Letters from Nora for Karen! I finished it just before I left to take her to the airport - she almost missed her flight! She picked out the framing and I paid for it since it was for her graduation gift... last year.

I cannot believe how much the boys have grown over the years of reading your blog. They have become handsome young men.
The needlebook looks great. You have nothing to worry about.

The framed K is such a beautiful gift and such a pretty needlebook you made for the exchange.
Great pics of your family.

Your needlebook is lovely! You did a fine job! And that is a lovely piece for Karen! I'm sure she will treasure it! Football is very important in your lives I see... what WILL you do next? Ha! You will get some more stitching done... don't know about your sons or husband! My husband will be lost! Hugs!

What a beautiful family you have!!!!

You did a great job with your first needlebook and your letter "K" turned out great!!!

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

You seem to have acquired some extra sons!
The needlebook looks lovely and K is just stunning. I'm stitching four of the letters this year. One for me and three for my godmother's grand-daughters.
