New Pattern Reviews coming up this week and Memorial Day...a day of rememberance and Thanks.

On a lighter note....I have a few new pattern reviews to share this keep an eye out on the blog... and I will also be posting them on the facebook sewing group as well.  I am also working hard this week to link up with other sewing blogs and sharing my reviews with them as well.

So stay tuned.....

In the meantime....It's going to be a very relaxed day here today. The girls have 3 more days of school, ending on Thursday, May 31st. But today we are off for the Memorial Day holiday.

I've been up for a while now...well, you know me, I havent been to bed yet :)... no surprise there. ;)
I'm catching up on a few sewing projects and plan to enjoy the afternoon with my girls and hubby and rest, and nap and we planned to play Wii bowling this afternoon as well. And of course, I can't forget to mention the bbq we will do here ourselves. Emily is such a nut for ribs, so she requested that since we hardly never buy them (her words) , let's have them today. haha.  So in addition to enjoying the day with a family game of Wii bowling, firing up the grill to and toasting star shaped marshmallows...most importantly, we plan to reflect upon all those men and women that have served in the past, the present and in the future to protect our country and that allow us to be safe and free. We thank you all. We give a special thanks to our own family members that served our country as well.

So although today is typically filled with family get togethers, bbq's and fun times, it's also a day of remembrance. Remembering those that have served our country in the past and have lost their lives while protecting our great nation. So we thank you from the bottom of our hearts and say a prayer for those brave men and women that are still away from their families on this holiday of rememberance.  We pray that you all come home safely to your loved ones. Thank you for everything.

So enjoy your day today. Enjoy time spent with your family and friends. And check back this week for another great pattern review. I can give you a hint.. a super cute girl's dress and matching doll dress. You won't want to miss this one.
