Prayer quilt for Faith

Sitting in church last Sunday morning I was thinking of Faith and her upcoming surgery. I didn't know of anything to say to her more than she would be in my prayers....and I am not discounting the power of prayer by any means. Then it hit me, I am a quilter and I can do something a little more tangible and lasting. 

So during Wade's nap (thanks Daddy for pulling extra Wade time this week) I pulled out fabric I had for a kit...modified the design a little, cut the blocks out and had them sewn in time for our members to sign them that evening. By the next Sunday it was ready to tie and many many of our congregation got to take part in making a prayer knot. 

She leaves in the morning for Charlotte and she, her family and the doctors will continue to be in my prayers. We love you Faith.

Halloween and Birthday Weekend

Wow what a weekend Wade had. He got to have a Halloween Party at school, trick or treat at the Krispy Kreme office then go out and do some more after supper in Boonville. He was a monkey this year and loved wearing his suit even though he had about outgrown it.  He just had his three year check up and is just a scant shy of 38" tall which places him in the 58th percentile. Considering he started down in the thirties when we got him home I would say he is growing just fine!

The next day was his birthday and Mommy broke down and bought a cake. We got a playset of Mater and Lightening McQueen going tractor tipping at Disney intending to use it for his cake first. He was so excited he sang along and absolutely loved everything he got. The family knows him well he was showered with more tractors, trucks, cars, planes and books about the aforementioned!

With all this flurry, and sharing birthdaydoughnuts  with his classmates on Monday....he never noticed we went back to standard time. 

Happy Birthday Wade!
