A week with our boy

First off, my Rachel progress.  Not much done with the boy child at home.



Don't ask about Manifesto or the hexie quilt or the clamshell quilt.  lol!

We had a good time with the boy child home.  He got to hang out with his friends a lot, play with Mia a lot, and hang out with us a lot too.  Here are some pics of when he was hanging out with us.

Standing an egg on end.  DH notes that one can actually do this at any time, not just at the vernal equinox (first day of spring).


Birthday boy.  (Try not to notice the mess on the table.)

Haircut!!!  (Please ignore the unintended advertising in the background.)

Hair cut too!

Rocket goodness

Playing with Lego

The boy child is back at college again and I miss him already.   

Here's Mia hanging out while we had our boy child's birthday celebration.


Thanks for stopping by and saying hi.  I hope everyone has a good week.

Mia is such a little teddy bear, she always brings a smile to my Monday. Your house will seem empty again - I dread the day it happens in our house.

ROFLOL... love the photo of Mia hanging out! Sounds like you all had a good week with the boy child. Nice haircuts... but why no photo of you and your new haircut???

Rachel is coming along just fine.

Hope you and Mia aren't too lonely since your boy child went back to school.

I'm in love with those cool little angels at the top of Miss Rachel - what fun! Glad everyone enjoyed spring break.

Nicola said...

Boys/men are never to old to play with Lego :o))

When your babies have been away you are so glad to have them home you don't mind about all the laundry they bring with them. I swear Chris never washed a thing at University.

Rachel is looking good Margaret.

Jackie said...

In that last picture of Mia I pictured her looking at the window as your son backed out of the driveway to go back to school. I'm sure she was one happy kitty while he was home!

I saw Mias kitty bed and so my DH was sent to find one for Sammy. He won't have a thing to do with it!

P.J. said...

How wonderful for you both and Mia to have him home for a week.

Rachel is looking fabulous. I was not supposed to have the Lauren Sauer piece on my blog and got my hand smacked - ouch. Lesson learned, but it was pretty.

So good to see you had fun with your young man. I bet Mia was tickled pink.
