I am really tempted to keep those as there are some wonderful patterns in them and if I ever got around to making the items, they would make great Christmas gifts!

Be safe and MERRY!!!
Here too! Problem is - so did the weeds!!!!!!
I think you should definitely keep them crochet magazines!!!

We told her we were all just going out to eat for her birthday, but he brought her out to the masonic lodge where the party was setup, and she started crying. LOL

We finished up around 11pm, and I was beat from jousting with the huge charcoal grill. I cooked 120 hamburgers and 140 hotdogs. Whew! But it was a blast.

I spend most of the day yesterday cleaning up the lodge and returning everything we had borrowed for the party. It was fun, but now I'm glad it's behind us.

This week, we have Vacation Bible School, so I have to get back to work.

I hope y'all have a great day!
Sounds like a perfect party! Glad she had a great time!!!

We had a great weekend at the lake! Weather was great - warm, not hot. Chilly nights = awesome bonfires.

Saturday a horrible thing happened - I took pictures for the Siren Sounder 5k - I took a great picture of 3 (guy) friends walking together - the fire truck was right behind them since they were the last of the walkers. I got the picture, they were all smiling/laughing & about 5 minutes later, 1 of the 3 guys had a heart attack & died. So horrible! He just lost his wife April 25 to cancer - they have 4 kids, the youngest is going to be a senior in high school. Just too sad!!!
