The Migraine Blues

I finished this blanket yesterday while recovering from a killer migraine (for the baby shower). I have not had a migraine in 2 years. Oh it was horrible. Thanks to my wonderful husband Ian for staying home and taking care of me and the kids.
This blanket was for a friend from church. She is having a baby boy, and naming him Bradley. We can't wait for his arrival.

Evelyn's Bday

Well, since I am very slow at posting my crochet projects, I thought I would bless you with some of my random thoughts. You know, since so many people read my blog, haha. Evelyn's birthday was a huge success. We rented a giant Spacewalk (I highly recommend it). The kids had a blast, but it was 100 degrees so they spent most of the time in her bedroom, tearing it to pieces. It was clean for all of 30 seconds. I spent the entire week preparing for this party. My house was so spic and span I could have put it on the market. Of course now, not so much. Anyway, an incredible amount of people showed up to the party. I was so happy and overwhelmed at the same time. Thank goodness for friends. All the mom's jumped right in and helped me so much. I am so thankful to have good friends. Kudos to our friend Jason who came and drew portraits of the children. That took lots of patience. To top it off, there was even a kid at the party that I have never even seen before! He walked in the house and asked for a piece of cake. I realized later that I had no idea who that kid was. He stayed while Evelyn opened presents and played for 1.5 hrs after the party was over. I finally had to ask him to go home - wherever that may be.... Come to find out, he was a friend of the neighbor boy. I am patting myself on the back for my patience that day!
Oh yes, I had a birthday four days later. Thanks everyone for the purses. I got 4 of them. And yes, I like them all.
