Kids, kids, kids....and a few other things.

Wow!  It's been a while since I've blogged.  I've been a little busy.  We've had a couple more birthdays, went to a funeral in Missouri, decided to buy some land, and I've been keeping my grandkids while Calista went back to her job of teaching Pilates.  And all of this in the middle of record breaking heat here in Oklahoma.  Oh how we're longing for the days of snow and cold!  Just kidding...but REALLY...we'd like for these 100 plus temperatures to break.  But alas, the weathermen are making no promises for any such thing to happen any time soon.

But life goes on, even when it's hot outside.  Kids grow...

...and kids like to play in the pool--even when it feels like bath water.

Here are all three of the young monkeys on one of the days I spent at their house taking care of them--or should I say being referee!

This little guy had a birthday (which he enjoyed very much)

This one's growing so much I hardly recognize him from day to day.

This one can be hard to please at times, but other times he's just the sweetest thing ever.  One night when he spent the night (just him) at my house, he told me it was the best day of his life.  Here he's helping me design a little quilt....

...which will eventually be for this little guy.  His name is Lenox and he lives in Kenya.  We've "adopted" him through Compassion and are enjoying getting to know him through his letters and helping him with his daily needs.

In the meantime, I've made a few more of these hand appliqued blocks. 

I've also been working quite a bit at the Cotton Patch, but during down times, I get to applique.

We recently celebrated Tim's birthday.  I won't say how old he turned.  I'll just say that the candles on the cake don't really represent the age.

I got him a new raincoat in anticipation of the rain that will surely come soon.  We'll keep praying and looking forward to the day when it's cooler and wetter. 
I'll end with just one more picture of the cutest little guy around. He's learned how to walk in the last 2 weeks.  He went from barely being able to stand to practically running.  That could explain all the bruises. Anyway, he's captured our hearts!
