Whew! what a weekend! It was packed full and went by so quickly! I cant even remember friday night.. but I know we did something!
I got the best mail on Friday! I recieved my doll from Mica, from the first doll swap. she is absolutely awesome and worth the wait, I LOVE her! She is a real treasure! I also recieved this little baby doll all the way from Denmark from my swap partner Maija! I love her also! Another treasure!!! I am just in Awe of the talent out here in Blog Land! I love it out here. Thank you Mica!!! Thank you Maija!! and Maija, my little baby doll Jasmine also adores the precious baby you made!!

Saturday I went to my friend Brendas and made a basket. I went back today to finish up the rim and I still need to stain it.. tomorrow. It needs a little more time to finish drying first. I have no idea where I'm going to put it or what I might use it for.. but I love the basket!

Saturday night we took little tony out to the dinosaur grill for dinner for his 21st birthday. there was a 1 and a 1/2 hour wait to be seated .. It was nice enough outside so we waited. and waited ... and waited. To entertain ourselves, we took a ton of pictures! There were a lot of people waiting as well, watching us and I know they all thought we were freaks.. well, we probably are.. but we have fun! Most of the good pictures I dont have, as they are on my daughters camera, but i have a few. this one is of my kids pretending to be maniqins. (how the heck do you spell that!! I must have missed that day of school!) Any ways, my husband got annoyed with the wait and got a little grumpy, but we just ignored him. The food was sooo worth the wait though. BBQ chicken and ribs! mmmmm! I brought home a piece of sweet potato pecan pie.. I have to remember to eat it! It stuck it in the fridge last night.. maybe I'll take it to work tomorrow.

so then today , after I finished the basket, I met my daughter and we went to lunch and then to a doll show. It was a small show, but I did manage to find a few little treasures! Arent they precious!? plus Jen and I both won door prizes. however, we didnt get there til close to the end of the show and the prizes that were left werent the greatest.. but hey. we both won!

Oh and I remember now what I did on Friday night. I didnt go out. I stayed home and made a little pink and blue bear.

Have a happy monday all!
