The Family

Mom & Dad - the recently spent two weeks making a loop through Colorado and Nebraska. It was the maiden voyage with their new to them camper trailer. They have lots of great stories. They visited friends in Colorado and Jarrod and his wife Jessie in Nebraska. Jarrod and Jessie were married on August 11. Jarrod manages a feedlot and Jess is working at Cabelas.

Eric is looking forward to a new, state of the art printing press at work.

Anna is busy with school and working at Dollar Tree.

One the right Anna, Eric and Kelsi.

Jerry is riding with the Patriot Guard for soldier funerals and has joined the Sons of the American Legion riders. He is deep in high school seniors photography and we have several art shows this fall. We have also done one wedding a month for the last several months.

The hospital is keeping me busy during the day and I try to help Jerry with the photography when I can. The Prayer Shawl ministry at church has started again this fall and I am working on several gifts as well.

I will close with a picture from our Cancun vacation this summer.

This is an ongoing project for Eric. It is a knitted log cabin blanket. I started this last winter after reading about it in "Mason*Dixon Knitting" by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne. The first one had so many mistakes I was going to frog it and start over but Eric wanted it for Alex his dog. So Alex got the first blanket and Eric will get the second.
This blanket is colors from my stash that Eric approved. The colors and logs are randomly chosen from two lists I generated from
Since this picture was taken I am adding the next log to the lime green at the top of the picture and it too is lime green.
Below is a picture of Alex on his blanket.
