I'm back....again

We're back from Missouri...again (3rd time since Dec. 26). Tim's mom is doing a little better. We accompanied her to her doctor's appointment in St. Louis yesterday and got home late last night. We helped MY mom celebrate her 75th birthday while we were there. I'm a zombie today so I'm reaching back into my files of pictures to include a little "cheery" something here...
I made this little quilt for Calista for her birthday a couple of years ago. (Doesn't Gabe look young?)
The flamingos' bodies are actually Gabe's handprints. The legs are made of grosgrain ribbon. The faces are painted and "sunglasses" buttons make the eyes. I tried to include Timothy's handprints, too but he was only 2 at the time and it freaked him out when I tried to put his hand in the paint. Oh welll! Gabe and I had a good time and I think Calista was pleased with the results.
