New White house pictures!

Yesterday we had family pictures done and I love the one's I have seen for now. I can't wait to see them all. Megan really captured some great moments together. Our once little family is growing by leaps and bounds. Oh, I love this man. This says it all doesn't it?

Hope these find you smiling, because I sure am.

Fiesta Days Quilt Show

Another Spanish Fork Fiesta Days Quilt show has come and gone. It is always held at the old Jones home on main street located next to the city park. There were lots of great quilts again this year. They have them hanging from every where.Here are few of my entries. They should all look a bit familiar to you as I have shared them on my blog in earlier years. Do you remember any of them? The first one is Button Up Buttercup.
Second one, a baby Twister.

Third and fourth, Skip Around the Block and my scrappy Twister.

When I got there to pick up my quilts after the show. They informed me that Button Up Buttercup had recieved third place for People's Choice. What a nice surprise.
I'll keep pieceing to enter some in next years. Me and sewing, what a great relationship we have together!

And were off!

This week we will be at Girl's Camp as the hosts. I won't be by a computer so I'm just letting you know I will still be behind. Ghees, when will I get caught up with everything I want to share with you. But I will leave you with this. My quilt for my trailer, it's been in the works for a few months but I was able to sit down and get the borders on it this week. Ramona quilted it for me on Thursday while I was at work. The binding is done and ready to go on. Amongest a couple other projects that are going with me this is the first one that I will work on so I can snuggle with it at bedtime. Yeah, I can check this one off the quilt list.
Have a happy sewing week. And I hope you get lot's of sewing done, I'm going to try and finish a few things while I'm gone so I have more to share with you.

Way behind!

Wow, I know I've been a little behind lately but I didn't know I had lost 2 whole months and almost a third according to my calendar in the sewing room. I was in there on Tuesday trying to muck out before I sat down to sew and looked up and gave it a glance. You know they say, "How time flies" and these last few months have flown by so fast for us here at the White house. Not many days left on this months calendar page. I won't skip to August quite yet, the cupcake on this page looks to yummy!

Happy end of July already!

The celebration continues...

here in Utah. We hosted a wedding PART-HE for Jacob and Angie on the 16th. Nothing real fancy and good old fashion BBQ. We served up hamburgers and hot dogs with all thetrimmings including a variety of salads, fresh fruit and for dessert. A yummy donut bar. I think everyone had a good time and loved the food but especially the donuts!

The happy, happy couple.

And our grill master, Stuart himself.

The sign in table with their wedding picture.

Table decorations were the lanterns we used in Idaho and we randomly put fresh flower arrangements and Angie's bridal picture on some of the tables.

McKinley and Thayner Man eating their yummy hot dogs that grandpa grilled for them. What cute kids. Love em' to pieces.

Angie and Kira fixing the serving table. Let's get started.

And now were putting the donut bar together. Now this was the place to be, everyone wanted to help get messy. Even Hatch and John, or did they just want a donut before dinner!

Just about ready.

Hatch's favorite the Maple Ring donut. He was eyeing those little gems all night. He finally got his two and he was satisfied.

The bar is OPEN! Donuts for everyone.

The donut varieties were: Choc. Choc. Cake, Sugar, Glazed, White w/choc icing, zebras, maple, choc. glazed, white cake w/white icing and a big bowl of donut holes. This was so much fun putting together. I haven't seen anything like this done before, have you?

See something you like yet?

It doesn't look like I'm going to get much posted on the wedding celebration in Idaho. But I do have the pictures loaded for your enjoyment. Watch out there's picture overload. I guess I'm just to tired because it took me forever to load them all!

What a great day for a wedding. July 9th, 2011.
