Freestate Awards Banquet

Well, we've just gotten back from my awards banquet...and BOY did I have a GREAT TIME!!! I don't think I've been this excited about anything in a while. Benjamin and I ended up getting a 3rd in Beginner Equitation, a 4th in Pleasure, and a GOLD MEDAL for the medal's class I did in September. On top of all that the girls had a blast dancing and running around the dance floor like two little nuts.

Here are just a few pics, of the festivities!

This one is of me and other medal winners...I'm on the right in the red.

And this one is of me almost taking out my youngest, while I was "attempting" to do the Electric Slide.

First Finish of 2009

Well, I was able to polish a piece tonight while I was watchin' TV. Take a look!! Actually, I'm "hoping" to make it a two-fer. I've got a piece by Little House Needleworks, called the Needlebook that I've got just about finished. The only thing that I have to do is to run a blanket stitch around the edge add a button and I'm done with that one. But, we'll see how things go with that one.

In any case, here's Flying Monkeys by Glory Bee.

Ok, I just need to share this with everyone because this just has me SOOOO pissed off.

For Christmas we got my youngest a new "big girl" bike. Well, her first attempt went pretty much as planned, we ran along side her while she tried peddling. So, we got her a pair of training wheels...why we didn't buy them when we bought the bike I couldn't tell you. But, in any case we have them now. So, I ask my DH to put them on this afternoon so I could take the girls out for a ride. Well, because the STUPID football games were on he was in a rush and didn't put them on correctly. So, my poor little girl had nothing but issues trying to just peddle her bike. And after I finally got her home after having to replace the training wheel twice the only thing he could say was "I'll look at it later." Which has just sent my blood pressure OVER THE LIMIT!!! Right now, all I can say it that I will be HAPPY when football season is OVER!!! Honestly, I should take the training wheels and throw them through the TV!!!
