Get a drink and sit back...this could take awhile.
I am camping!
Right now as we speak I am sitting at my table, waiting for my coffee to get here, while Brayden gets ready for his first day of swimming lessons. So I thought I should catch up with all of you while I pass the time. And it sure is a time passer! Campground wi-fi leaves a lot to be desired!
Onto the first picture which only took 10 minutes to upload. Ha! Good thing I have all week.
Halloween Rules - I finally finished the first block! I just love how cute it is.
Remy Rabbit - Finished the red on the stocking. Not much left to go now.
Hannah Lynn - started up the next row.
Steotchalong - Finished the main part. Now I have to choose from 16 different possibilities for the bottom. I am pretty sure it is either going to say "The King of the North" or "Dumbledore's Army"
Joyful World SAL - Finished all the green stitching.
Cars - added 3 more movies worth of stitching to this. It was only supposed to be 2 movies worth but I guess I can't tell the difference between a movie from 1994 and one from 2016. Ha! The movies for the Stitcher's Film Club this month were Labyrinth and The Jungle Book (2016). I started with Labyrinth which I had never seen and I am a little angry that my parents didn't show it to me as a kid. We had seen everything else Jim Henson had a hand in so I am not sure why this one slipped through the cracks.
My most favorite Jim Henson movie is A Muppet Family Christmas where all the muppets go to Fozzie's mother's house and Miss Piggy gets stuck in the snowstorm and Kermit finds the Fraggles. The best! I found it on youtube if you are in a Christmas movie mood -
My second and third movies for the month were both The Jungle Book. My boys were hogging the tv so I figured I would just watch it online. Quick search and there we go. I had watched half of it when my sister came for a visit and I knew she had watched it so I asked her what she thought about it. She was raving about the young boy in it and the special effects. I was shocked she was so impressed with the special effects as I hadn't noticed any and then I asked her when the animals start talking and she quickly figured out we had not watched the same movie. I was watching the 1994 version, none the wiser. And really it has held up pretty well over the last 20 years. So once I finished the first one I told the boys we were all going to watch a movie and got the proper one playing and I loved it! Christopher Walkin as King Louie was so good! And Bill Murray was the perfect Baloo.
And now a few pictures of my babies.
This is the only picture I have of Thomas recently and while his mouth is blue and his pose is a little awkward it is all I got. Him and Monty are slowly coming to some sort of understanding. I really hadn't thought through a 4 year old and a maniac puppy.
This is from Brayden's last day of soccer for the year.
This one is his 8th birthday picture! That's right I am now mom to an 8 year old! We spent his day yesterday hanging around the campground and last night he chose a round of mini golf and cheeseburgers for supper. Perfect way to spend the day turning 8!
Well I hope this takes you all less time to read than it did for me to write it. Ha!
