This weekends Newest Project

I am finding I really need down time on the weekends and quilting has been the new hobby of the week. So I tried my first Stack and Wack for Christmas table runner for my new bookshelf in the family room. Not perfect (especially from a picture) but I learned a few tricks as I went along. It has 5 squares on it so that it would hang over the edge so that I could use more of the blocks.

Gladiator from Italy

Josh was doing a project for his Italian class and asked me to make him a Gladiator costume. Between the two of us we were able to get it done. We think it turned out quiet good.

Bryan is Home!!!

Bryan arrived home from Florida on Thursday evening after a 31 hour bus ride. He is very grateful to be home and is doing well. He has a huge gum infection that has left him swollen and suffering. But we have meds now and he is doing better. He is slowly detoxing and is feeling a little better each day. He has some decisions to make in the next few days. He is really trying to put his life in order. It was a neat experience today to have him beg me to take him to the singles branch after he had attended our ward with us. He is truly trying to put the past behind him. We are glad he is home and look forward to his time with us. This is not going to be his favorite picture but he will look back and know he made it through.

Changes at the Rackham's

David was called as Bishop of the Woodstown Ward today. It has been a very long weeks for us as we have planned and adjusted to this new call. We had a great Bishop who was serving before David and he has some big shoes to fill. David is excited as well as a little over whelmed. But we are looking forward to the future.

What a Wonderful Time of Year!

It has been a wonderful last few weeks. But it has to end as everyone is heading back to school and work. I was able to take the week off between Christmas and New Years so everyone was home. We had fun filled days, late nights and the best part- sleeping in. David and Lysa have one more day before they head back to Utah and Idaho. Everyone hopes to go rock climbing with David, who brought a few of his supplies, tomorrow. But David D. is feeling a little under the weather so we will see how it goes. Lysa and Dad took a quick trip to VA to Lianne and her new baby boy, George. They see he is a cutie. But what do you expect he is part Rackham. Lysa has also been the reigning queen in most of the games we have played. Tonight is the big show down to see if we can kick her off her high horse.
