The craft bug bit us in St. George!
A week ago today (Thursday), Ashley took the Shuttle up from St. George. She got to SLC around 1 p.m. I took a break from work and went down to pick her up by the Conference Center. She took me back to work, then went to run a couple of errands. She came up to go to the UofU vs. TCU game that afternoon with us and stayed til' Sunday. We kept pretty busy while she was here. Her friend Lisa just had her second baby girl so Ash and I went shopping for fleece to make a fringed baby blanket for her. We brought some lunch over to Mom's on Saturday to not only visit with her but to put the blanket together. It was so cute! The material was a pink and black plaid with a bright pink backing. Mom helped Ashley with it while I went and picked Diana up. When I got back to Mom's we three helped finish it up together. It turned out really cute. Sunday morning Dave and I left and took Ashley back to St. George. We stayed down there til' Tuesday early afternoon which was also her birthday. We got bit so hard by the craft bug again that we went to a scrapbook store not to buy anything, but to get some cute ideas for neighbor's Christmas gifts. We ended up picking out 2 kits to make Thanksgiving decorations. We did that on Monday night while Dave was watching Monday Night Football and Joey was working. We had so much fun making our projects together and were pretty pleased with the finished products. In fact Tuesday morning we decided to go back to the same store picked another kit up for the both uf us. She did her second one Wednesday,....I guess I'll do my second one this weekend. Here are some pictures. I'm not going to put them all on however. As much fun as I was having with Ashley and taking pictures of each step of the project, I looked way haggered in some of them. Anyway,.....enjoy! By the way, after leaving the scrapbook store on Tuesday (we had been to Walmart in Bloomington because we wanted to see Joey in action at his new job as a Pharmacy Tech) we headed over to Washington specifically to get an "In And Out" Burger for lunch. But what I was going to say is we turned on to Bluff Avenue near the Kmart store and guess who we saw walking hand in hand down the sidewalk? Kris and Terry (my cousin and her hubby for those of you that don't know them)! They got back from their mission in Africa not too long ago and are living in Hurricane. Didn't want to honk and scare them but I did wave to them as we drove by.
