what a weekend!

Anna Rose's chariot for the wedding!
We had a super duper busy weekend!  First we went to Illinois to visit a Catholic shrine- the Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows in Belleville.  It was less than an hour long drive from our mansion and we enjoyed a great snooze in the sunshine- WHN had turned off the ac Friday since it was so cool outside!  We had a swalk around the grounds of the shrine and then we were whisked off to Wally World and then home for snackies and dinner.  Sunday we were dragged out early for a morning swalk in the neighborhood and then left in the car while the peeps attended Mass, and then they had a surprise for us- they took us to the Gateway Arch for a nice long swalk along the Mississippi River!  Anna Rose enjoyed herself immensely- she was admired by her adoring subjects, as she was pushed along in her rolling command post!   The weather was great- in the mid 70s and WHN has all of the windows in the house open!  

As promised we have a surprise for our fans- remember that we hinted about something tremendous having to do with driver's licenses and WHN?  Well look closely at her photo with us at the Arch- SHE CUT OFF HER LONG HAIR!  She did this right before we moved from Ohio, and Tasha thinks it is because WHN wanted to look like Aunt Cindy so Tasha will stop trying to run away to NY!  What do you think?

WHN has been busy- the top of the quilt for the WDA is done!  Now she just has to layer it, quilt it and bind it and get it in the mail by Friday!  She also tried her hand at hexagons- she found a pattern in a quilt magazine and the table runner came out great- Dad loves it! Next up is the Slimmer Purrs project, some Bible covers for her Women of Grace group in Ohio, and some other stuff that she cannot remember!  (She is blonde after all!)
WHN will be starting the wedding dress of the century next week- it is going to make Kate Middleton's look like a dish rag!  Lots of tulle and ribbons and flowers!  Tasha will be wearing hot pink satin and bright blue tulle!  Amber Da Queenie will be wearing a crocheted creation made by her Mama, and then WHN will be starting the tuxedos for the men in the wedding pawty!  Then she has to make the bridesmaids their sashes- she needs to know necksizes and favorite colors for each rbidesmaid!


Who's the stranger with the DWM?

Lovies, Miss Mindy

I bet that new hair cut didn't fool Tasha one bit! Your hair is much lighter in color than mine, but I won't tell which color yours is ;-)

Looks like you are having fun exploring your new area.

Love and hugs to all.

Looks like a great weekend. MOM laughed very hard at "Like a dish rag". It really hit her and has giggles ever since.

We love WHN's new hairstyle! You look like you are all having a great time in your photos. We ordered a rolling command center for Quinn, it is yellow! Momma says her grandmother loved that shrine and visited it often. You are SO busy!!!
