I really like the way it looks. After our shopping we came back to her house and put the new comforter on her bed to see what we thought. It was great! My mother has made me (and all of her children) sets of cloth coasters that are just the BEST coasters in the world. I have a set for my living room, and also a set for Fall decor and Christmas decor. But I was really needing a set for my family room. So I asked her if she had any in "the works" that might work for this. (She hasn't made any of these in quite a while) She pulled a set out that was all cut and ready to go. The colors are perfect. All I have to do is sew them. I am hoping to get around to this later on this afternoon, or maybe tomorrow. When I get them done I will be sure and post a picture or two so that you can see just how cute they are, and how perfect. I am thinking I am also going to make up a set for Valentines day decor, and maybe some for the 4th of July as well. THEN!! I am finally going to do my give away. I know I have mentioned give aways before and then not carried through, so I probably shouldn't say anything about this yet. But I can never keep myself quite. This time, it IS going to happen. I will get some sets made up, and then let you know the details about the give away.
Last night as I was laying in bed praying it occurred to me that "IF" and it is a big "IF" we get out to see Sam in Feb. like we plan, he will already be 5 months old!! 5 months!! I can hardly bear it. He was just a sweet little newborn the last time I saw him, and in the blink of an eye he is already a few months old. I feel like I am missing soo much. It is hard I am not going to lie. I want to hold him REALLY bad!! But this morning when I woke up my daughter called and told me she had posted several new pictures of him. She sends me quick little videos of him almost every other day, so I have heard him laughing etc. too. Thank goodness for all these ways to keep connected. It is not the same of course, but it sure beats the way it used to be. She does not have access to Skype yet, but we are working on it. Meanwhile, I just HAVE to share his latest photo session with his mama....He sooo looks like her in many of these pics.
