My cutie patootie

This is DS#3 pretending he is rushing for a touchdown. He is a little young for the 12 yo team though - but he was having fun at Big Brothers Football game. We had a scrimmage last night against the broncos. We are the Cowboys. They did well and learned a lot. The coaches could stop play at any time and discuss the options/strategies etc. I think it taught the kids a lot.
Wednesday Hubby and I got to go to a Rockies Game - vs the LA Dodgers. Squiggy from Laverne and Shirley was there at the beginning of the game. And the Rockies WON - we were 20 rows back from home plate - great seats, until the 6ft 6in guy sat in front of me. He was cool and moved over one ;-) He also taught kindergarteners and said that sometimes the kids are in such awe of his height they forget to speak!
People are fun to watch, some dress up for the games, some need to go shopping. I had fun watching the folks walking up and down the stairs. One lady couldn't figure out if she should tug her shirt down to cover her tummy or pull it up to keep the upper parts covered. Such a conundrum - me ~I would have opted for a shirt that fit to begin with!!
I have FINALLY finished my wacky log cabin blocks and will have the boys lay them out in a pleasing presentation this weekend and get them sewn into 2 tops. I am 3 blocks shy of my first heartstrings quilt - so have been working on those today ( in between getting my truck tire fixed, laundry, ironing for dh and goofing off a bit) . All three of these will be Quilts of Valor. I also got a Heartstrings quilt that came from Sue in MN all prepped to quilt this next week.
Have a great Day! Keep Quilting.

He is adorable!

We went to several baseball games over the summer, and the people watching was pretty fascinating. I couldn't figure out why so many people and then didn't bother to watch the game....
