busy weekend..

a friend and I went to our first sale of the year, one i have gone to for many years...
we got there right when the doors opened at 7am.
i have stood in a freezing below 0 line many times.. this year it was above 0.
a few of my treasures...
my family has used these spoons for soup ever since living in japan..
then we found an antique flea market!

 i found another rug beater.. it was only 3.00!
then we stopped in this fun market!
son Jason ended up with the bull dog sauce i bought, and daughter Angie wants some of the fish
so guess we will be going back!

next it was time to watch our favorite hockey player!
we made it to 3 of his games this weekend.

Lastly a Birthday party for grandbabe Brody! 9 years old now!!
here he is with great grandma/grandpa and cousin Henry!
 Elizabeth & Henry with great grandma/grandpa..
 so sweet...
then it was time to chill!!

Jana, Heidi and i took a class on "Peek-a-boo" bags.

and by the 3rd i was happy enough to be done with them for now! 
i made the middle in class and the other 2 at home. bound and determined to be happy with it! must get my fussiness from mom!
Carol came to chat and brought Jana (Jan 2) a b-day cake with a candle that Jana had got her
that opens, twirls and chimes..
also started this year long project.. anyone else working on this?

at night i have been working on my rug hooking "forever" project and can see the 
end! so enjoying it that i have another pattern ready to go on the frame!!
