a couple of my friends have seen them and think they are adorable and have siad they want to pay me to make one for them.....I had already planned to 'give" them each one....
also we have had a Russian girl staying with us the last few weeks( I'll write more about her later)......it's with a sortof 'exchange" program.....she leaves next week ..and I plan to give her one as well...
other then that not much happening here.....I have family in Biloxi ..but luckily they made it thru Katrina Ok....they didn't evacuate but they live in the ONE area that didn't get hit so hard....they were without power for a good week or two and the kids are still not back in school...they WERE going to move right up here as my mother does NOT want to go thru another Hurricane like that again.....they were going to bring the kids up right away so we could get them in school and then my mother and my SIL were going to go back to finalize things to move....so I was going to be taking care of 4 extra kids for a while...I was actually looking forward to it..LOL...mine are all older and I was missing having children around...LOL...but as quickly as they decided to do that they decided not to...LOL...they say they still plan to move by next summer..but I figure my mother will talk herself into staying by then...anyways I'm just glad they were all ok....I had about two days where I had no idea how they were or wether they'd survived....it was pretty rough...

Now we did have some good times during all this...as I said our PR vaca was GREAT...in April I turned 40!! and DH and my best Friend planned a SUPER Surprise Party for me...it was MORE than I could have hoped for and I was totally shocked...I knew they'd be cooking something up for me but never expected anything of this magnatude( will post pics)...In May my youngest did her Confirmation in the Catholic Church..and in June my other Daughter graduated from HS...she is going to VA Tech...she'll be a HOKIE..LOL.we had Orientation this week.....she is VERY excited!
Like I said earlier though I pretty much lost interest in Crocheting for a while...then this summer I picked up my hook and started on a really pretty table runner.....I am getting close to the finish...unfortunately my camera's not working these days so I can't take a pic of it yet....I do have pics of stuff that's been going on.. though and I'll post those in a minute.

I was tagged by Carmen at http://lilhatshack.typepad.com/ ( i haven't really figured out how to do links in my posts.
Total number of music files on your computer: I'm not sure.....LOL..i've maybe downloaded 5! but my girls have probably down loaded more...I'm not even sure how to check..HA
The last cd you bought:
Martina McBride's Greatest Hits...I had to replace my other one it got a scratch! and started skipping all over the place.
The last song you listened to before reading this message:
When You Believe by Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston from The Prince Of Egypt....my daughter Rae is singing it in her school variety show and we were listening to it, so she can learn it.
Name 5 songs you listen to often or that mean something to you:
hmmnn....they'll probably mostly be Martina McBride she's my favorite and I've ben listenign to her a lot lately...
1. When God fearing Women Get the Blues---because it's just a fun hilarious song!!
2. Where Would You Be-----sometimes that's how feel about my DH and I
3. Strangers- same reason as above..
4.Concrete Angel-..it's a sad song makes me cry everytime..
5. a song my daughter wrote....i don't know the title...it may not even have one but it's good and very catchy...
3 people i'm gonna pass this to and why:
Sara---because i don't think she has been yet and she comments on my blog a lot and leaves me LOTS of compliments!!
Tink--again because i don't think she has been and she has posted comments and compliments as well!
and Rebecca for the same reasons!
After we drank all the wine.( and EVERY couple contributed at least TWO bottles of wine not to mention we opened up THREE bottles of Champagne afterwards..so needless to say we were ALL feeling 'good"..LOL) the guys broke out in song! My hubby is in the middle.
And this is a sortof matching purse I was making that day too...I actually finished crocheting it last night and just need to add a lining and sew on a couple of flowers I made for it.
I'm just sooooo happy with how these turned out!
