Happy Fathers Day!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Father's Day! We had a cook out for my sweet Daddy and planted a lilac bush in his yard for his present. Dierdre baked a yummy raspberry pie for the occasion (thanks sweetie!) and hubby made his famous deviled eggs, yum! My son Cody and his girl Kayley came home from Cleveland and they started my day by jumping in bed with me!! Literally jumping and rolling, huggin and kissin! 8:30 am, in our quiet as a church house, giggles erupted! The sounds of pure bliss filled the house. If you are a mama and your child leaves the nest you know what I mean! and there is no better way to start your day, than opening your eyes and seeing the ones you love...home!!!

Why was I still asleep at 8:30 in the morn' you ask? Lazy Bones? No...not me! We went to the Mahoning Valley Scrappers home opener the night before. What fun! They didn't win but we'll get 'em next time!! I love watching the Scrappers play cuz they play from the heart! I don't think Justin and Dierdre watched the game at all though...they were too busy eating!!! hot dogs, french fries, ice cream! anything they could get their hands on! There was even someone dressed up as "where's Waldo" in the stands...we made Dierdre go grab him and say "I found Waldo!" for her ice cream cone. What? Parents are suppose to humiliate there kids and their friends, right?

I just knew that a fly ball would come straight at me so I warned my hubby and son to be ready to save mama and wouldn't you know it one did! I threw my jacket up over my head (like the prim chick-en that I am) and my dear sweet hubby threw his body over top of me! The ball was just inches above him and the person sitting behind us grabbed it! My hero!!!!!!! I'll have to bake that man a cake! I even got to see an old high school friend there, Ken Sakely. It was great to see him and catch up! We graduated in 1988...where has the time gone?! Moral of the story? Get out and have some fun!!!

I sold olde Charlie Barrett and his fishin pole (my ooak design) and this prim bear looking for honey (an olde homestead barn pattern by Vicki) over the weekend, thank you buyers!! I will work on getting more of these items back up for sale in my etsy shop...just as soon as I can!

Here are the pics of Justin and Dierdre at the Prom, that I promised!!!!!

Aren't they gorgeous?! They danced all night long, stopping only twice to get a drink. Ahhh, to be young again. Ok maybe not, I'll just live vicariously through them lol!
