This is Patrick Jr. He is 6 years old and in Kindergarten. He likes to play Crash Bandicoot on the play station, build with Lego's and make forts in his bedroom. He is also learning to be a great cook, he makes wonderful soup! (From the can of course!)

My Favorite Things



One of the best books that I have read in a while is Eternity by Maggie Shayne.  It is the story of an immortal witch that searches for her true love, a mortal man.  I read all 300 plus pages in one weekend!  What Dreams May Come by Richard Matheson was also very good. I can not say how it compares to the movie, as I have not seen it!  Daniel Quinn's My Ishmael was also a wonderful book - although rather difficult to explain. My mind is still reeling - it is extremely though provoking - and is one I will definately read again as there is NO way I could have absorbed half of it!!!   Currently reading Who Moved My Cheese by Spencer Johnson - a co-author of The One Minute Manager.  It is a parable revealing the truths of change. It is pretty short book, about 2 mice and 2 tiny people in a maze trying to find their cheese.

I do love to craft!  My favorite is when my kids and I craft together. We made a great banner for their Nana when she hurt her back.  It was covered with gems, feathers, pompoms and even had some chocolates on it! When crafting with out the boys, I enjoy counted cross stitch and crochet. My current project is a 28"x16" (approx) counted cross stitch. It is a peacock sitting in a pear tree.  it will probably take me years to finish, it will be very beautiful!

Happy Easter & Passover to all!!

Here are the boys on Easter morning. As you can see by the chocolate all over Patrick's face, the baskets had already been attacked. We had an egg hunt in the front yard. Plastic eggs were filled with candy and toys. They had great fun. We were thankful that it wasn't raining, but it was sooo cold!!!
