Blackhawk at the Udvar-Hazy Air & Space Museum. We spent the afternoon touring the museum with Mark's parents.


I didn't actually take this picture, but borrowed it from Mom because one of the last things we did together before they left was make a run to Starbucks to warm up.


I spent Wednesday and Thursday working on some quilting projects. These are squares that my Grandma had made. I inherited them. I laid them out to see what I could make out of all the stripes. It has potential.


Finally some snow!! We had a wonderful lazy day enjoying the snow. I did, however, feel sorry for the neighbor who's work truck is under this tree. Ouch!

Late Thursday night we got a call that Mark's father passed away from a massive heart attack. I've been so busy making plans/arrangements that I didn't even think about taking pictures. Tomorrow (Tuesday) we fly to CA so maybe I'll get back in the swing of things as we travel.

The funeral is Wednesday at 11am. We'd appreciate your prayers for traveling safety (can we make it over the Midwest storm?) and comfort for our family. I'll be gone a couple of weeks and maybe unplugged. If you don't hear from me, I'll catch up when I get back!

I'll be praying for you & your family. It's so great that you got to spend some time together before he passed away. That's a great picture of the two of them with their Starbucks.

Love the quilt squares!! Neat to get something passed down to work with. I do a little quilting. Working on one that is on the back burner, but hope to get it out next week.
