MIA For a While!

Well it's been over a year since I blogged and I want to start back again.  Much has happened in the last year.  We have had Ava since May, 2011 while Casey is deployed and it's kept this ole lady pretty busy!  Spent months wondering how we would do it and now worried about how we will make it once Casey is home and Ava leaves us!
We lost our precious poodle Rudy in July.  He got into the road and hit by a car and broke our hearts.  We are a dogless home for now but plan to get another when Ava goes home.  I just couldn't imagine potty training a 2 year old and a puppy!
Many blessings throughout 2011 and have continued into 2012.  I got some sewing done I will share as I post and new projects in the works!  Dad had a bout with pancreatic cancer, had surgery and treatments and doing well.  We are planning building him a home next to us as soon as the weather permits.  I can't wait, my dad is one of the most pleasant and fun folks to be around!
Will try to start adding some things next week, tomorrow the grandblessings are keeping me.....there are 4 of them so I have no doubt I will be well tended to!
