Shes done!

I usually don't post so frequently, but these past couple of weeks have been busy! Chases little sister, Alexis, graduated this past weekend! We cant believe that shes done with high school... that flew by! Her sister, Angie, had some leis flown from Hawaii for the special occasion! 

Angie and Alexis
At Alexis's graduation party we had her Tongan siblings cook us an authentic luau with a pig and everything! I love it when they come and cook! Its so good. I had a hard time eating the pig thanks to my husband! He had to go over to his parents the day before to help clean and get ready for the party! He called and told me that he had no desire to ever go hunting. I was thinking that they already killed the pig and was gutting it, but no... He goes on to tell me that the pig is still alive and was freaking out in the back of the truck because it was so scared! Not a good thing to tell me when I feel bad for animals that die for our pleasure! Needless to say I didnt dish up any pig, but my sister in law forced me to take a bit. As much as I like pork and it was very good, I just couldnt stop thinking about poor babe that I was eating :(

Here's a blanket that I made for Alexis... it was from me and her mom and it turned out pretty well I thought!

Remember the time when we went to the Burns for the BBQ and you told me to eat some pork but it was actually my baby lamb they slautered? I dont feel bad for you in this situation :)

I seriously cannot believe that she's done with school. Have we seriously been out for four years? 6 more and we'll be saying hey at our 10 year reunion!!!

I'll be 16 weeks along when we find out. I don't know how you've been so patient to wait for 20! So so exciting... can't wait to hear your news this week!

I love rag-quilting. It is a beautiful quilt. Love the colors.
