It was MADNESS!!!

i was so distracted by the madness at midnight
that i failed to share our project{s} that night.

this month the gals had a choice of quilts.
both are from cheri's wednesday's best quilt book

i'm thankful for holley & mardy for letting me borrow their quilts.
there was no way i was getting them done.

at one point the gals were getting tired.
turn on some music, fill up on salt water taffy and soda and the next thing you know,
michelle was dancing on the table!

and show & tell was fabulous!

there's always fun to be had at quilt class!

{TABLE} dancing!
i will wait for the photos to come in so i can show you, but in the mean time
enjoy one of my favorite themes...

monday, macy left for hawaii with nana, pa & hannah.
{when the grandkids get to a certain age, nana & pa take a couple at a time}

she was SOOOO excited.
everything has been about hawaii lately as you can tell.
and she couldn't wait to get all dressed up for the occasion!

last year a wonderful lady made matching dresses for the girls for macy's 8th birthday.
we will be SO sad when they don't fit. they are just too perfect! 

everyone was smiles and giggles...

until the drop off!
and then the melt down began

but not to worry, by the time we got home the tears had stopped.
poor kid!

aloha, macy!!!
