Happy Anniversary to Us!

Derek and I have been married for 9 years.  Sometimes it just doesn't seem that long.  Then I think, "wait, I have a 7 yr old.  I better have been married for 9 years!"  These 9 years have been great.  We hardly ever argue with each other, we enjoy each other's company, we agree on most things, and only tease each other a little bit.  We seem to have been designed for each other.  Okay, that's enough sappiness.

Nephew's Got a Brand New Bag

Well, so far we've made good progress on Halloween stuff.  Emmy's costume is completely done, Andrew's is almost done, and I still need to make my riding hood, but I at least have the fabric.  Yesterday I got a text message from a sister-in-law asking me if I had made her son a trick or treating bag last year.  I told her I did the bags at least two years ago, so he wouldn't have been born yet, and therefore no bag was made for him.  Luckily, I'm a packrat.  I still had the fabric leftovers from when I made the bag for her daughter.  I used a different color to line it, though, and a different trim.  Hers was a rick rack I think and his is a satin ribbon that says boo.  Now they'll be able to tell the difference.  Here's a picture of the little boy's bag I finished yesterday.
Now I just need to get it to my Father-in-law so that he can deliver it for me.  It's hard to live so far away from everybody.
