You may recognize this picture of this sweater. Well, I made another one this week...
...only in this lavender color. I forgot to take a picture and I've already taken it to the Crisis Nursery. It's a size 4/5 so will be good for a pre-school age child. They get donations for the babies, but not so much for the older children. I need to find a nice boys sweater pattern and make some of those.
In other news, I snapped this photo the other day when I went to walk at the mall. This is how high the snow piles, dirty as they may be, are around town. As high as the two story mall.
Here's a cleaner side. Look, almost as high as the street lights. It was still there this morning when I drove by. Winter, go away.
Obviously, some snow is melting because we've been in a flood warning for several weeks now. This is the river fairly close to us. Our first house here in Spokane is just about 1/2 a block from where I took these pictures.
Do you see the ducks in the bottom picture? So much water.
Mandy, Brad and Piper went into D.C. last weekend to look at the Cherry Blossoms. I love this photo. I think it was at the Jefferson Memorial but I could be wrong. Piper just loves her Daddy.
My girls. Oh my heart breaks from not getting to see them in person for so long. Maybe soon though as they're in the process of getting ready to move once again. Still not here in Spokane, but a bit closer.
Piper got the two Octopi that I sent her. Did I spell that right? It was a good day for her to get the package because she wasn't feeling well at all that day. She was SO happy! Which made Grandma happy of course. :-)
And I started this yesterday.
Are you wondering about my post title? Missoula or Bust! We're driving to Missoula tomorrow to see Jamie, Kyleigh and Caleb. We've reserved a hotel room and are eagerly awaiting our trip to see our babies. We'll be home on Sunday and have a good friend staying here at the house with Chloe. I sure wish all of the kids were here, but I'll take what I can get. I haven't gone anywhere for so long, I've forgotten how to pack a suitcase. Believe me, if I could I would be packing one to go to D.C. I miss my girls and really need a Piper hug.
There is absolutely nothing else remarkable happening here. It's been raining, raining, raining here so I spend a lot of time inside. No flowers are coming up. Nothing. It's spring on the calendar, but still resembles winter outside. I know it's coming though and I'm trying to be patient.
Have a lovely week my friends. I'm going to go hug three of my babies, (even though one is a grown man, he's still one of my babies!) Am I right, all of you Mom's out there? It doesn't matter how old they get, they're still our babies and we love them.
