2009 almost gone!

The past couple months have been really busy!!
Im sorry I have not been up to date on my blog, but here I am!

Also, I am frequently on facebook, just look me up. My profile picture has the pink rose tatoo so you will know thats me for sure!

Lets recap this year 2009.

1.Hubby lost his job right before Christmas 2008.

2.He was unemployed for 6 months. I loved having him at home! but paying bills was really hard with no money coming in. *sigh*

3.My daughter announced in March she was pregnant with our first grandchild

4.My hours got cut back at the school where I worked as night custodial on call.

5.Hubby started a new job in Lewiston in June.

6.We were forced to sell our house of 8 years for a huge loss in July

7.I found my baby sister on facebook! I had a huge family reunion , seeing my baby sister and my mother , I have not seen them in 20 years! in July

8.We closed the sale of our house on Aug 1, which gave us FIVE WHOLE DAYS to pack up and load into a Uhaul and move to Lewiston.

9.I started living in Lewiston in August. Got hired for a new job, lasted all of 3 days and got fired Hahah! Try being a courier in a town you are not familiar with.

10.My Son started his senior year, at the highschool in our former town. We pay his rent and he stays up there as long as his grades are good!

11.My son started a new job at the local greek restraunt! Yippee!

12.My husbands Mom celebrated her 70th birthday in October, we hosted a big party at our house that she had no clue! Alot of her friends from years ago came and she enjoyed herself alot!

13.November 15th our grand daughter made her entry into the world. And her new adoptive parents were there to see her born.

14.November 21st was my TWENTY YEAR Anniversary with Pat! Wow! Time sure flies fast when your having fun.

And here it is December already. In a couple weeks 2010 will begin and I sure hope its a hella lots better than this year has been!
Below are some pics of the baby :)

Pat and Robin holding first grand daughter Anala born
7 pounds 4 ounces

Anala at two weeks old laying on the quilt I made for her going away present

Anala close up of her darling face, shes so beautiful!

Here is a full shot of the quilt I made for Anala. It is flannel on the front and flannel on the back. I machine quilted all the white area with stipples, and monogrammed her full name and birthday at the top of the quilt in purple thread.
Orange and Blue is my daughter's favorite color so I incorporated that to represent the birth mother.
Pink is My favorite color
Green is my husband Pats favorite color
And the backing/binding is purple
As you can see I made it big enough she will be using that quilt for many years!

Anala wearing frog pajamas, and the adoptive parents had a book with the same title! How cute is that! She is two weeks old in this picture.

Lots of Loves!
