Happy Birthday Ashton!

Good evening everyone,

I have been missing in action for over a week now, but I have a good excuse. This week is Kevin's vacation and we have been very busy. He has about worked me to death! LOL Maybe I will lose some weight and be in better shape when he goes back to work next week. (grin) I'll tell more about what we have been doing this week in another post later.

This post is dedicated to our handsome first grandson, Ashton. He turned 6 years old today! Goodness, where does the time go? I can remember being so nervous, while waiting for him to be born. He was our first grandchild, after all. We drove to Lawrence this past Saturday for his birthday. It is over a two hour drive, one way for us, but so worth it to see our darlings. I finished his dragon quilt Friday night. I will share a cute story about this little wall quilt. It measures about 24 inches square. Cathryn told me this morning that Ashton insists upon sleeping with it every night. He just cannot understand about hanging it on the wall. He told her that it is his quilt that grandma made for him and he wants to sleep with it. LOL How cute is that? I am hoping he will let her hang it on the wall before winter. LOL I can't help but wonder what he thinks when he looks at how little it is and thinks it was made to cover him. (grin) I will have to share a picture of him with it, later. I didn't get one, and Cath is supposed to send me one. Cath, where is my picture? (grin) Here it is right after I finished it. I couldn't help it, I had to do some hand quilting in it.
I don't have any pictures of Ashton on digital till he was 2. Here he is with his mama on his 2nd birthday.
Ashton's 3rd birthday party. Our boy loves to play in water and mud. Here he is playing with Uncle Jon.This was in Memphis when I helped them move. That was a very long year for me. Thankfully they have moved back up here, much closer. He is feeding Beauty, my pygmy goat. The kids had a ball doing this. Playing in a pan of water again. Here he is at his birthday party last Saturday. You can see how hot it was by how red all their faces were. LOL So there you have Ashton from 2 through 6 years old with his birthday quilt thrown in for good measure. LOL He is growing up to be quite a little gentleman. He was going to his first Royal's baseball game today and was quite excited. I hope you had a wonderful birthday my little guy. Grandpa and I both love you very much.
Well, that is it for me tonight. I may not be back till next week. So happy 4th of July for all of my American friends! Everyone have a great weekend. Stay safe and enjoy your families. Thank you for visiting.

You are going to have to make a bigger one for him to sleep under! Does he still have curly hair or did he lose his curls?
Happy Birthday Ashton!

Oh Winona- the quilt turned out so wonderful! I think that is so cute that Ashton insists on sleeping with it.... I know he must love it very much. He is such a cute little boy.
Don't worry about being MIA- I understand how it is when the hubbies are at home! Mine was home the week of the 4th and I didn't even have time to turn my computer on at all!
