Mid America RV Show

My husband & I were up at 5:20AM to head to Kansas City to the RV show. We went with our friends & had a great time. We found 2 we liked. One was Gulf Stream's, Amerilite. Really good living area space. Bigger bunk beds & 1 slide. The other was Prime Time's,  Tracer. Big roomy bathrooms! There wasn't near as much variety. No air-streams, fun finders, or even tear drops. Like my husband said a lot of the same campers.
But we still had a fantastic time. We stopped at Corner Cafe for breakfast & then a late lunch at Hamburger Mary's. Just a really fun day! Sorry not much photos of the RVs this time.

Christmas and New Years

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and is staying warm! It is a balmy 3 degrees in Missouri right now. I hope this bitter cold kills off ticks, fleas and beetles. However it's perfect sewing weather and lots of babies coming this year! Time to get cracking on baby quilts!
We had a nice Christmas but tremendously missed our loved ones who have passed on. My sister could not come home. I am thankful my mother in law joined us this year. My grandson is always entertains of course! Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!

I love snow! I love the look of everything covered in white. It is so peaceful! But I love to play in it too! Our first snow of this season. We had some yesterday but just a dusting. It is supposed to stay cold so we will be having a white Christmas! My family wishes everyone a very Merry Christmas!

The wedding gift

A dear friend of mine, who's an amazing person, got married November 4th. I had the best intentions of having her wedding quilt finished in time but it did not happen.
I finally finished the top & got it to the quilter to be quilted & bound. I got it back yesterday & washed t & will give it to her next week. Better late than never!

Nature center and parade

Today was a busy day. My daughter went wedding dress shopping with her aunt and cousin in Springfield. We got to keep my grandson and take him to the Holt Summit Christmas Parade. Very chilly day; sunny, windy and 38 degrees. But first we went to Runge nature center. We always enjoy that and I prefer it over the park because its also educational. My grandson learned to shoot a rubber band gun. make deer tracks with clay and see a lot of turkeys at the feeders. Next we found a place to park on the parade route and waited. As soon as the kids heard the first police sirens, they jumped up! A very cold but very fun day!
