He suffered brain damage at birth and has several disabilities as a result. His parents have worked really hard to help him. They are hoping to take him to China for stem cell treatments using umbilical cord cells in hopes that it will help his functioning (specifically mentioned were reduction in seizures and improvement in vision). Please pray for this sweet little boy and his family. Lift them up to God that He will provide and that He will keep them safe as they prepare for their journey abroad. Please, if you are able, help them financially.
Looking at Dillon and his brother JayDonn who is coming up on his 2nd birthday (yes, they're really close in age), I can't help but think of my own Bubby and Bubba. Bubby is just a few months younger than Dillon, which makes me hold Dillon even closer in my heart. He is a reminder of how God allows our best laid plans to change in an instant, but that if we trust in Him, He will use it for His good.

I guess that means I need to blog a daily giggle? :-D Okay, here goes, but it's not quilt related.
I babysat Bubby, my 2 yr-old nephew, this weekend. After evening church service we went to Frisch's . Since we had eaten before service, I did not want to buy two whole meals for us, so I decided we would just split an order. I asked Bubby if he wanted pancakes and he said yes. Then I asked him if he even knew what pancakes were and he said they were "Yum-yums". I had to laugh - cause he's right, pancakes are yum-yums!
Doesn't he look ready to enjoy his yum-yums?

You may breathe easy and have a chance of winning LRC at the upcoming night at Best Friends. I hereby post my regrets in that I will be unable to claim my winning FQ's. I have a high school graduation to attend in another state. So your winnings are safe this time.

My mom, nephew, and I visited Fabric Shack today! I managed to purchase about 15/16 yards of fabric - most of the $2.98 carts. We were there forever. I did manage to get my exercise chasing my nephew around the store. They even gave him a duster so he could "dust" the fabric. He enjoyed it.
The last two images are the $2.98 fabrics and the 1st picture are some yardages off the clearance section. Gotta love savings :-).

I need milk for the boy, so we'll just stop at the grocery store on the way to the house, and I'll pick up my other needs then. I've got chicken nuggets, mashed potatoes, green beans, his favorite noodles, hotdogs, and hot cereal, so I think I'm good on Bubby food. Besides milk, his requirements are yogurt (he doesn't get any at home, just with me, so he thinks it's a very special treat) and cookies (the ones from last visit are probably stale - I haven't eaten any in awhile).
The quilt he doesn't need until I return him, so I can work on it during nap/after he goes to bed and have it ready to go.
I haven't vacuumed my bedroom/sewing room yet, but neither he nor study group will be in there, so I'm good on that account.
Retreat pictures? Yeah, not happening this week :-(. Well, not today anyway. Maybe later when I finsih Dino quilt.
It's almost time to get him :-) I'm way excited. Can you tell? My Bubby's coming for a visit!
So that's my list update.
