Wedding wood blocks

One of my bosses at work is getting married this Sunday. I really like this boss and wanted to make her a little something for a gift. This is all decorated on a big hunk of wood so it will stand up on the table. They are going to Disney for their honeymoon, so I thought that this was perfect.
I took them into work and she loved them both!!
Now... onto more projects!! LOL

Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls

When I was little, I had a set of Raggedy and Raggedy Andy dolls. My Mom and my sister used to make and sell them. I loved my dolls and now wished that would have kept them.These arent the dolls but they look similar.
Well.....I mentioned to my sister how I wish that I still had my set. This year for our birthdays, we decided to exchange gifts at the same time, although our birthdays aren't at the same time. So...to my surprise, she got me a new set of Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy dolls. They arent the same size but I love them just the same. They bring back good memories of my childhood.
 
 They sit and look good on our bed. Thanks Linda!! I really love them.

Grill/marathon/kalebs graduation/parade/Toms house/color run

 Since Mothers day, there has been lots of stuff going on. Don got a new BBQ grill from the kids for his B-day. Kim and I decided to put it together for him, I mean how tough can it really be???
 Well......2 hrs, 45 mi later TADA!! 1 new BBQ grill and it works fantastic!!! Not that Don ever cooks on it but he likes the food that IS cooked on it ☺
Kim ran her 1st 1/2 marathon in Rockford. She did good, we were so proud of her and she kept running but she was tired by the end. says she wont be doing another one for awhile lol

 Kaleb graduated from Preschool!! YAY, Kindergarden and every day school come August 14, not like we are counting or anything!!! lol He went to a wonderful preschool and had the best 2 teachers!!
 Kaleb LOVES to dress up in his suit and there is another little girl in his class that likes to dress up as much as he does. Don't they look cute and take a look at her shoes, lol
 Next was the Memorial day parade. Jason was driving the Loves Park ladder truck and so Zac got to ride in it with his dad. You cant see Zac but he is in there waving to everyone!!
 3 of our grand daughters, Sydney, Bailey and Katie
 The grand kids with the duck!!
 Tom bought himself his very own house and closed on it this week. It is 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 car garage, nice deck and yard. It is a pretty good size home and he is so excited and ready to make it his own, so we are excited about that. Now....I have an empty basement to figure out what to do with ☺
 
Today was the Color Vibe run in Belvidere. It was a 5 K and so Kim and her friends ran it. There are a zillion people that run/walk and so they started them in waves. We saw them in the beginning and not again until the end, there were just way too many people there but it was fun for the kids and I to watch.

 

Allissa and her friend also ran the Color run!!
So while I  havent posted much, there is alot going on and more to come!!
