Here's the birthday card I stitched for my dad for his 70th birthday. He's definitely into cars and I thought he'd enjoy this card. It's actually similar to the Model A (or T?) that my grandparents used to drive to California for their honeymoon in 1929.

Here's another picture of my dad and me. I think we look just a little like father and daughter! ha!
Well goodness, it's been too long since I wrote about our comings and goings. We've pretty much just been doing the usual stuff: work, school, church, etc. Hannah's had some fun weekends lately, though. Last weekend we spent some time with Nana and Grandfather and then on Sunday, she and several other friends got together for a Build-a-Bear party. Basically they just played with their stuffed animals and ate pizza and cake, I think.
Then today, a good friend of hers, Adam, had his tenth birthday party at the church (in the church basement) and they watched one of my old favorites, Snowball Express. What fun! Adam's mom, Maria, made the coolest cake: it was a couple of old reel-to-reel circle cakes, with another cake section on top of one "reel," that looked exactly like popcorn coming out of a bag. My, what talent! and so tasty too!
I'm glad Hannah's had some extra special fun times lately, because her schoolwork/homework has taken a lot of her time in the evenings. I guess it's mostly her not understanding some of the work and taking longer to do than normal to finish it--plus she has to talk about a lot of things in life, so that talking makes things go a little slower! ha!
John and I have been enjoying some evening walks every few nights, in the crisp, fall air. We really like to walk and talk together and just don't get to do it enough, it seems like.
Found out my sister's coming to visit, so hopefully I'll have some fun pix and stories to tell in the next couple of weeks!
Okay, well guess that's it for now. After this week, I guess we'll be getting ready for the holidays in the next few weeks. May not do a lot of gifts this year, but I know we'll try to make sure Hannah has a terrific time, and as always, just enjoy our time all together!
All for now,

Well, I've GOT to write an update on our family "doins" but it's pretty late, so I'll just post a pretty picture for now. Love everybody! Oh, and this photo was taken at Veteran's Park near the fish pond. The sun was shining through the trees and "dappled" light hit her face, making her sparkle all the more than she usually does! That's my sparkle girl! :) More updates to follow! All for now, Tricia
