Give Away Count Down...4 more days!

One of the exciting things about visiting my dear son and family is we got to see the baby's room!!!  See the cute name banner that Robin made for the new little guy!  

We gave them this old dresser and he sanded it down and painted little monkeys all over it!  Adorable!!

Enzo was freaked about their wood floors and wanted to hide under their dining table all day! Their place is 3 stories and I had to escort him down the wooden stairs like a "service" person! lol

...and here is my sweet grandson.  Every time I see him I swear he grows an inch!  He is wild, energetic and amazing...of course that's nana talking.

What can I say...dinner was fabulous!  2 professional chefs fixed an amazing dinner...I had never had truffle oil before!

HH and I just sat and watched the magic! It was just like watching a reality show of Iron Chef!  The dining room in 2 steps higher than the kitchen and this photo was taken through an opening in the wall...just like watching TV! yum, yum, yum! Our son, DIL, her sister Becky (chef #1 with the wonderfully curly red hair) and friend Michele (chef #2) for some quilt talk...first, don't forget to leave a comment by clicking the link and be sure you are registered follower (hoping to reach that magic #300)...oh and make sure you are not a "no reply" blogger.

Secondly....I finished all the blocks for Henrietta Whiskers!!!!  yeah!!!!  I am working on getting some UFO's organized to begin the 2012 UFO Challenge!!!...and...3 days left before we start the fabric 1st quarter diet....I'm breaking out in a sweat!


  1. Lucky you, nice to have kids who can cook;)
    My dog has a hard time on wood, so i have rugs in key spots so he can get around.


  2. I spent time with my youngest granddaughter then went on to TN to spend Christmas with my older grandchildren! Happy New Year! L

  3. WoW!! That is some fabric diet! Good luck! Irene and I allow ourselves to add a new background or one fabric to an old project to spice it up. I can't wait to hear how you all do w/the diet. It's inspiring (and scary!) But it does feel good to finish those projects once lovingly bought so long ago.

  4. What fun with your family and their friends! Dinner looks marvelous!
    Good luck with your fabric diet!
    Have a happy day!

  5. I love re-purposing furniture. The dresser is just adorable. Congratulations and Happy New Year.

  6. Love the dresser and the meal looks delish. I am a new follower.

  7. I'm working on UFOs too - finished one yesterday that was a couple of years old. Yea! blessings, marlene
