Election Day

Did you remember to go vote?
My little helper and I went this afternoon!

I can't hardly believe this is the 4th presidential election I have voted in.

The polls are closing down here and we are anxious to start seeing results come in!

Today is not only election day for our family. It also marks 4 months since anyone has seen or heard from Skylar, Russ' cousin.

I can't imagine what Skylar's parents are going through. Please say a prayer for Skylar, her family, her friends and for the FBI agents that are working on her case. I pray that her parents find answers soon.

This afternoon was busy, busy. After voting Chloe Jo and I came home and I started a new project. My Mom made me this blanket back when I was a teenager. It's around 15 years old. It is a twin size so I gave it to Chloe Jo since her bed is the only twin in our house. Well, I kept finding pieces of string on the floor that Chloe Jo had obviously been chewing on. I couldn't figure out where it was coming from. Well, one day I realized what was going on. My little stinker had chewed off the ties on her blanket!

I was so mad! I actually left the room so I could cool down before giving her what for! I had no idea my little girl is part hamster.

And that is what I did this afternoon. It took me about 4 hours to retack the blanket, but I did it and it looks so much better.

Plus, after laying it out on the table, I realized that several of the tacks were completely gone. It needed retacked very badly. Sometime in the near future, I will have to redo it again so I can change out the flannel backing. It is starting to wear very thin.

And that's all she wrote.

Hi Lisa,

I stopped by your Etsy shop, and it is adorable! I'll be keeping you in mind the next time I need something for the littles in my life. Thanks for stopping by the blog!
