On Sat. we spent the morning running a few necessary errands. Joanne's Fabric store was having a big sale and had their patterns for $1.99. I am "thinking" about making the bumper pads, quilt, window valance, crib sheets and bed skirt for Mike & Melody's new baby nursery. The things she has found that she likes have SUCH ridiculous price tags, that we decided this might be a much better alternative. Mel's taste has always run towards quality, the different, and unfornately pricey, haha. Anyway, back to my story....Jeff was really a good sport about hitting the 3 local Joanne's so I could get all the different patterns I have been wanting. I am going to make Capri & Donatella some little matching sundresses too. I also got some PERFECT snuggly baby flannel to make the new baby some matching nighties and receiving blankets. I would show a pic of the darling little fabric, but she OCCASIONALLY reads this blog, and I wouldn't want her to see, so I will resist for now. She just phoned me after seeing her doc for her 16 week check-up and all is well, praise God. He confirmed that it is indeed a boy (no shocker to this grandma, haha) so they will now announce the gender on facebook. Such a big thing these days. They have decided DEFINITELY on the name as well. He will be Samuel Alan TeVelde. They will call him Sam. Alan is a family name as both Mike & his father share it, so I am glad this little guy will have it as well. After our other (not nearly as exciting!) errands we ran by and picked up little Jeff and went and saw the new movie African Cats. I had promised him a couple of weeks ago that I would take him when we saw the previews for it while seeing the movie Hop. It was soo good. We all enjoyed it. I love these kind of movies in the first place, and this one was particularly good. Even Grandpa & Grandma learned a thing or two as well.
I LOVE this of the boys!
It was REALLY difficult getting all 4 to stand together at one time for a picture. This was the best one I got on the day. Capri is demonstrating an elephant's trunk for me, haha
They all had such a good time playing around in this little area. Jeffie looks like a mini Joe in this pic. Soo much like his daddy at the same age.
My photogenic JD!!
Tella flying a helipcopter!
Capri enjoying the one of several play areas!
Oh I forgot to mention that "the girls" won Friday night!! YAY mom! Now we are only down one game. ; )
