He Did It

Originally uploaded by joeysews5
Our first one to graduate. We are so proud of Cody. My mom came from Oregon (after moving out there 11 months ago) and my sister came from Washington with her family. My mom flew but my sister and famly drove with a diesel truck and a fifth wheel filled with 4 wheelers. Lewis' family all came (most from Pueblo) with one sister and family from New Mexico. We also had family join us from Frisco and Denver and many family friends from Pueblo came. This was all very exciting for us. We bought WAY too much food (except for cake, which we only had a small piece leftover) and now we will be eating hotdogs and hamburgers for the WHOLE summer.

Cody is going to start a community college in the fall and will work this summer for a local landscaping company. His girlfriend's family took him the last few days to go fishing in the mountains.

Two more years till the next one graduates!

Lovin' the lunchbox pattern

Two lunch boxes too! I made one for my little sis who will coming next week for my son's graduation from high school and one for my friend who will be taking care of my dogs while we are gone to New Mexico this weekend to see Niece graduate.

I made two of these yesterday! I think it took me just over an hour from cut to finish! I just love the pattern and the way they come out. I would like to try to make them with the iron on vinyl but would have to travel about an hour away to purchase it from JoAnn's. I am wandering how well they will keep their lunches insulated, just hoping they put them in the fridge if needed.

Pattern is from here:

I see many more lunchboxes in my future! They are great gifts!

Ok, so I actually have some followers that have been wandering why I haven't posted. That was a surprise to me! Well, a couple of reasons 1) My son is graduating next week!!!! 2) family is coming for the event 3) my husbands been home recovering from surgery and 4) I thought I was going to figure this whole "posting" thing out to make my "posts" cuter (but NOPE, not yet) Anyways, thought I'de just tell you that I'm so excited that people actually look at my blog and my pics on flickr. And hopefully in a couple of weeks I will be on a more regular schedule of posting! (and hopefully get better at it)

Thanks for reading, friends!
