Alive & Kicking

I cannot believe it’s been almost 3 months since I’ve posted on my blog! It’s been busy around here with school starting and fall soccer along with my attempt to get some stitching and crafting done. Tuck in for some updates.

Two weeks ago we joined many other families in our area with children living with Type 1 Diabetes. We did a 3 mile walk to raise money and awareness for JDRF. All for this one…. She’s sipping a juice just as we were getting ready to start our walk…low blood sugar. Great timing! We had a lot of fun, got some good exercise, and enjoyed a beautiful warm fall day. After the walk we went to Circus du Soleil’s Allegrio show. IT WAS AMAZING! If they come to your area go and see it. I can’t even explain to you how wonderful it is. We all enjoyed it. The kids were even talking about his morning on the way to school. I wasn’t able to take photographs during the show for safely reasons. I would have loved to share some of them with you.

The other two are playing fall soccer. My younger daughter, Jo, is a gymnast year around, but decided she wanted to take a short break and play soccer…not sure we’ll be making that decision again. She’s having some fun, but I don’t really think it’s something she’ll want to do again. She’s ready to go back to the bar and beam. She does get out there and play…that’s the important part.

Coy on the other hand has inherited a natural athletic ability. He’s only 5 and this is his first year and I am a proud Momma, but he knows what he’s doing out there. He scored 4 goals at his first game and almost got a 5th but twisted his knee right as he was kicking it. That was the end of the game, but we were so proud of him. He’s so much fun to watch. They both have a game Saturday and I look forward to seeing them in action again. My husband is a little concerned with the Forest Gump stand that he seems to have mastered in every photo. =)


Last but never least…my WIP’s; every holiday season I attempt to pull out all of the stops and stash and get some things done to decorate my house. I’ve stitched some of our adorable Halloween Critters for my Halloween tree, that many not make it up this year. I love these they are so fast and fun and the colors are amazing!

I’m working on a stocking from BBD’s Halloween Stocking Book. Also, a little Boo chart by Stasy Nash Primatives. I’d like to make that into a little pin keep to put at the base of my tree…I have many other designs picked to do the same…UGH maybe next year =)

Sorry for the poor photo…I’m also working on some Christmas designs. Blackbird Stockings…which I LOVE….these are done, just need to be finished.

And…Peppermint Twist by LHN. I’ve been apart of Diane’s Ornament Program this year and I’m loving it. I will have quite a few new ornaments to add to my tree this year.
Well, hopefully the next post won’t take me 3 months!

Love, Meagan
