May happenings

 May 13 was Drex and my 50th wedding anniversary.  Happened to be Friday the 13th this year but 13 has always been a lucky number for us!  This picture was taken on Mother's Day, but was only five days before our anniversary.

Our children and grandchildren gave the altar flowers at our church in honor of our anniversary.   We brought them home to enjoy after church services.  It was the nicest gift.

I began this quilt about a month ago.  It was actually a top within a week and a half after I began.  It's half top and half a quilt now.  Just lays on my sewing machine table waiting to be finished machine quilted.  Seems there have been other things happening that needed more attention.

This is taken on Mother's Day again.  The two Georgia grandchildren.  Natalie has her last day of PreK tomorrow and then she'll soon be on to kindergarten in the fall.  How the time flies!  Austin will be going into 5th grade.  Do not know how they grew so fast.  I must get pictures of the Texas grandchildren posted soon.  We'll all be celebrating our anniversary together at the beach this summer.
Remember we got a 3 week old kitten in August, so tiny I could hold her in one hand.  Guess what, she grew!  Why she ever decided that she needed to be in my in-basket I don't know, but she put herself there.  She managed to remove herself after a nap.
