PHappy Monday everyone!
Two years ago today little Princess Piper burst into our lives and nothing has been the same since! She is two years old and has stolen a HUGE part of her Grandma's heart as all of you must be aware of by now! We had her party last Sunday when Brad's parents were here, but we couldn't let this day go by without acknowledging it. Mandy baked her these cupcakes last night.
This morning she had a cupcake while still her her jammies at 9:00. It's her birthday. Don't judge. :-)
My head is cut off here but look how happy she is with her new Elmo slippers that we got for her. She loves "Elmore" as she calls him.
We took her for chinese food the other night at a buffet. She charmed everyone and look at this face! The food was a hit for sure.
Saturday a friend called and asked if Dennis and I would like two free tickets to see the Gaither Vocal Band. The tickets were way up in the balcony so this picture isn't very clear but oh my! It was a wonderful concert and a blessing for sure. Hubby and I haven't done much together lately so it was sort of a date night and we had a wonderful time. I've always enjoyed the GVB and we've seen them in concert a couple of times before. It was 3 hours of soul inspiring music and we're very grateful for the gift of the tickets that allowed us to attend.
The next three photos are the view from the balcony level outside of the performing arts center where the concert was held. It is of the Spokane River and Riverfront Park where the World Expo 1974 was held.
Riverfront Park. The structure you see on the left is the last standing of five that were for the different continents during the Expo.
The Clocktower, a symbol of Spokane. Isn't our town pretty?
Mandy's Wonderful Wallaby is done.
Piper's third Wonderful Wallaby is also done! Mandy says I need to make myself one because it feels like a nice warm hug on these chilly fall mornings. I gave the smaller orange one that I made for Piper to a little girl at church and it fits her perfectly.
But...we now have a set of twins expected at church and the shower has been set for the end of October. I have two baby blankets to make and two hat/sweater/bootie sets to try to finish by then. Do you think I can do it? I have my doubts because, after all, I want to play with Piper too. The babies aren't due until February but she expects to deliver early and I think they want to have the shower early to avoid the holiday months. If I don't finish in time I can always give the gift to them after the shower. I started this blanket yesterday.
I hope you're all enjoying fall's arrival. We winterized the trailer this past weekend and the lows are dipping into the 30's F at night. I think that even if I'm not ready for the summer to march away, it's happening anyway. :-)
Hubby has been working in his new shed building a workbench/potting bench and moving shelves out there with the gardening tools and pots. The garage is looking much better with clearing things out. I'll also be making a trip to Goodwill with a trunkful too.
Have a lovely day my friends and I'll be back soon.
