I Love Thursday #106 Abundant Blessings
This is the 106th post of things we love for the week. We post these loves each Thursday along with LeeAnna on her blog at Not Afraid of Color. Several additional friends also share on a weekly basis – be sure to check them out. You will surely find something to inspire you.
Four-square block! I subscribe to Missouri Star Quilt Company’s daily email blast. I’m not sure why I do because it just sends me daily temptations of fabrics that we should buy but don’t need. Included in the emails are also tutorials for videos of their free patterns and how to make them. This 9-patch block made with charm packs and some yardage looks like fun to me. Being the nice person I am, I thought I’d share the temptation and see if anyone else wanted to make it?!! The block and video are called Four Square.
Elmo socks! Enough of the serious stuff! I am hoping Andrea doesn’t see this, but I know full and well that she will. Aren’t these just the cutest socks for a sweet boy? Sesame Street socks with all the fun characters but especially Elmo. In theory, these are for Dominic for Christmas. But seriously, who wants to get SOCKS for Christmas from Auntie Sue and Auntie Rose?!! Good grief. So I would suspect he will be wearing these by the weekend.
Non-calorie cake! My friend, Mary Ringer sent this along with the Ripples blocks sent earlier this month. Isn’t it just so darn cute?!!
Picture overload time! Dominic is giving his Mickey Mouse big wheel another try. He is great at going backward. Uncle Billy was tossing him up high and that smile says everything. Higher, Uncle Billy. Higher! Next is their happy place, a.k.a. Barnes & Noble. Dominic was on stage and was certain that the singing of the Itsy Bitsy Spider song was just for him. Dominic and Addison do spend a lot of time together: playing little people on the table in the living room, checking out the sippy cup drawer, or sending some special prayers to my sister on her procedure day. But Dominic does NOT appreciate his sister sitting in his highchair at our house. For.any.reason. He parked himself on the tray and gave his grandma a disgusted look – why is she sitting in MY chair? Addison didn’t care. Let me see if I can open the case on this old phone. Eating a new snack that is vanilla/cinnamon crunchies need to be inspected by our sweet Addison. She kind of likes that texture, thank you very much. Finally, Addison is r.o.c.k.i.n.g. the bellbottom pants in the last two photos. Gosh, she is so sweet. ♥ ♥ ♥
