Hello February!

I've been MIA in the blogging world, but that does mean ny hands have been idle. I've started a host of new projects and even finished a few.

First an update on life in general....well...the sad economy has finally caught up with this family. My DH has been laid off. So far we'll be able to manage, but keep your fingerst crossed for something to pop up soon. Our market here in kansas has been thoroughly satuarated with talented workers since Sprint has gone through a huge round of lay-offs, but we're keeping our chins up and faith strong.

My oldest is entering the spring of his final year in HS. He has applied and been accepted into the achitect program at KSU.

My DD broke her ring finger last week(Drama!!)

Trenton turned 6 on Saturday and we had a great pool party at the Rec center here. I know, I know it was January, but we called it "Bummer it's not summer pool party!" Pretty cute, eh?

And now onto the good stuff...the PROJECTS:

Baby Blanket for a teacher who is due in April.(So proud of myself; I planned ahead!)
