It was a good weekend...

...it all fell into place...doesn't it always?

The confirmation service was beautiful - The musicians were awesome....I cried through most of it....started with Amy Grant's Thy Word...gets me every time....

At one point, I looked down the pew to see my four boys, now almost grown young men, my parents, my ex husband and his wife, his parents, his brother and his family....It just touched me that after so many years of hating...we are finally able to co-enjoy our children's accomplishments....that's huge. I cried.

Here I am with my four "little" boys....Note: I am 5'8".....



Here they are, left to right Nathan, (15), Jeremy (22), Chris (17), and Andy (20)...Aren't they handsome young men?



...and Chris with the Bishop....



It was all good....

I felted the purse that I finished knitting...It turned out okay - I ran it though the wash cycle twice, hoping to get it a little thicker than how it ended up...but, no luck...again, not as excited about the yarn as I was...



I do like the colors - but am concerned that the handle is really going to stretch out with the weight of items inside...will have to see...

What cute guys. Being a mom of boys as well, I tend to be a little partial in that direction!

Glad you had a fun weekend!

couldn't help but notice there was no talk about Katie in there.... I'm going to assume you didn't like her.... :(
