Since this was my first time ever doing a Wee Sock I thought that it would only be fitting to use the left over yarn from my first sock. I really liked how it turned out. It's already in the mail and I hope that she likes it. My person has already contacted me and I now know that mine is winging itself across the US to me. I'll post pictures here once it has arrived. This has been a lot of fun to finish a project so quickly.
Sunday at church not only did we have the usual (choir and orchestra) but we also had a women's ensemble sing. Then this Sunday started the beginning of a new sermon series "Celebrating Our Heritage" and along with it we sang only hymns written by Wesley! How wonderful it was to sing those songs.
Then Sunday evening we were treated to an organ concert by our organist at church and dear friend.
What a weekend!

Earlier this week I made a second loaf of the Chipotle Bread because it had already been completely eaten. Tonight I'm making some more Honey Wheat Bread as that loaf is almost done. Guess I'll just have to see what comes to my mind to make next week. Stay tuned!

Speaking of pictures I have some to share with you all from our Spring Break trip. Sam and I went back home to Springfield, MO, to visit family. It was a very wet trip. As most of you probably know from watching any news over last week we were pretty much floating away. In fact a town next to where we were made the national news due to the flooding. Luckily on Thursday we had a wonderful day to go to Silver Dollar City. We all had a lot of fun! I would have taken quite a few more pictures while we were there but most of the time there was spent waiting in line to ride the rides that they have there.

I would like to introduce you to the newest member of our family! This is Max. He is a Jack Russell Terrier/Welsh Corgi mix. We don't know his age for sure but the animal shelter had him listed as young. We'll have a better idea in roughly two weeks when he goes in to get fixed. I took these videos this last Sunday afternoon when we were out at Cedar Hill State Park. He had a lot of fun attacking the water.
Now on to the party! We went to the C. R. Smith Museum. It is the museum for American Arlines. C. R. Smith was the founder of American Airlines. After the museum we went to a pizza place for lunch and to open presents. Everyone seemed to have a great time. I know that we did!

This is a sword balloon that his principal at school made for him once he arrived that morning.
Harry Potter "Scene It" game. I was looking through Toys R Us when I found this on clearance for only $10! I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw it. I snatched it right up.
Books from Grandma and Papa. He has already started reading them. In fact one of them went to school with him.
These are "Kings Corner" a card game, "Craft n Play" Formula One race cars that he can build then paint, Tony Stewart race car and magnet.
Legos! Built it last night and has played with it quite often already.
A plug n play game that includes Ms. PacMan, Pole Position, and a few others. He is stuck on playing Pole Position and Ms. PacMan.
A Hot Wheels Race Track. Andy and Sam put it together this evening. It's pretty cool!
Here is the cake that I made for him. Boy is it ever good!
Sam and his cake. The second picture is him being embarrassed while we sing to him.
I don't know what I said to him but I caught him rolling his eyes at me. Boy does he ever have it down.

We never found Gilligan. We do however feel in our hearts that he is somewhere in our neighborhood (or surrounding neighborhood) just as happy as can be. He will always be missed and I will still always look for him but I just can't keep up looking for him every day at three different shelters. It just wore me out physically and emotionally.
Since I stopped blogging Sam has been one busy boy. He has built a bird house with his boy scout troop. It was a great afternoon of "male bonding" with some of the fathers and the use of power tools! At one point when they started to paint their bird houses some of them took off their shirts in the sun to paint. Sam made his so fast that I didn't get a chance to take pictures of him actually putting it together but I did get some pictures taken. Here are a few pictures:
Sam also ran the Cowtown 5k a few Saturdays ago. At his school they have a running club which Sam begged to be involved in. I couldn't say no. Every Monday after school he participates in the running club and has really learned a lot. He loves his coach and it doesn't hurt that his teacher is also involved in the club. I also made Sam a hat for him to wear at the marathon since it was quite cold when it started. As usual I took pictures!
Check out that stride!
I have also finished some knitting projects this past month too. I didn't get a chance to photograph one project as I did it so quickly. One of our good friends was in a play at his church and asked if I could knit up a scarf and beret in red. I did both of those in the time frame of 3 days. Whew! I'm hoping that some day I'll be able to get a photograph of them. I have also finished two hats for Sam and have still been working on my socks. Again...here are some photos:
Last but not least....SAM TURNS 8 TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe that he is going to be 8 already. It seems like just yesterday we were picking him up from the agency and stuffing him into his car seat. That is a story for tomorrow.
