My First Mother’s Day

So this weekend was my first Mother’s Day and I had a lovely weekend. Allen’s mom and her husband came to visit us which was a nice treat. They had not seen Nathaniel since Christmas and needless to say he has changed greatly since that time. They really had a great time with him. On Saturday, they babysat while Allen and I went to the Melting Pot for dinner (Yum!!). My MIL just love spending as much time as she could with Nathaniel, so I had a ton of time to stitch. That was my main Mother’s Day gift:) Allen and I are also planning to buy ourselves a small video camera as our first Mother’s/Father’s Day gift.

So here are the fruits of my Mother’s Day stitching. First Deb’s RR. I finished the house and just need to do my little person/signature and tombstone. I am proud of how early I got it done this round

After I finished Deb’s House, I pulled out Nathaniel’s birth sampler. I haven’t worked on it in a while, but would like to finish it soon. I am about halfway finished at this point and really like how it is turning out. I think I am going to try and get at least one more band finished before moving on to something else and will probably rework my “rotation” and make this my focus piece for a while.

Allen wants me to blog about what he is doing. He is currently playing Grand Theft Auto IV and his character is taking a taxi ride through Star Square. He just got a girls number and is very proud of himself:) Allen is just a child in a 30-somethings body! I am so in for it when Nathaniel is old enough to start getting into trouble with daddy…and I wouldn’t trade it for anything:)
