Afterwards there was a fireworks display. This was the first time we dared to go to the actual place that the fireworks were going off. Believe it or not, he has an aversion to loud sounds. Anyway we went. You would have thought I just bought him a car. He was laughing and telling be all about how the fireworks light up the sky and talking about which one was the biggest.....During the fireworks he laid down on me and said "thank you so much for bringing me to the fireworks. it's my favorite thing in the whole world!" I had tears in my eyes, of course. He's such a nice boy. He must have thanked us a hundred times on the way home too! I'm so glad he enjoys the little things!!
On a different note:
I made these for Sarah after she had her first baby. I also made some washcloths. I think the hedgies turned out the best, but for my first go at embroidering tee shirts, I think they all turned out nicely!
I made this for me, it will eventually be a purse. I've just gotten a little side-tracked.
I didn't get the job, for those of you who were wondering. She decided to go through an agency. So, I don't know......We'll see how my treatments go and then go from there. They do seem to be making a difference though. At least the cocktail they have me on is making a difference.
Michael is doing well in speech therapy. He loves the therapist and she is really good with him and he listens to her.
He's asked me to make him a couple more things. Working out the specifics on a Chinese dragon softie and a dinosaur, they don't seem as easy as a woo...
Our house hasn't sold, still. And the market is only getting worse, so keep praying!
Geoff still likes his job. They've been doing a lot of remodeling, so a lot of switching desks and so on for the last month, so that's a little frustrating, but the job itself is great. We're still hopeful of an easy winter....
