It's a Thursday/Friday

For me it's Thursday, for some it's Friday.  Lots of people have Good Friday off work and so today is their Friday.  Since Kristin works tomorrow, I do too.  So for me it's Thursday.  I've been busy this week working on Easter gifts for the kids and grandkids.  I did tee shirts for the grandkids -- told you about that.  Still have to try to save the boo-boos, but I have an idea of what to do.  For my girls, I wanted to do aprons.  When I was at Joann the last time, they had aprons on sale.  So I picked up 4.  When I unwound them to start the embroidery, I discovered that I had picked up 2 full aprons and 2 waist aprons.  So, two of the girls are getting half aprons.  I wanted to take photos of them this morning, but my camera seems to be MIA.  Mary gets a half apron with a strawberry cupcake on it.  Pat gets a full apron with a hot apple pie on it.  Pam's is a half apron with a strawberry milkshake, and Kristin gets a full apron with a piece of pumpkin pie on it.

My time on the lap top is somewhat limited now.  Izzy has discovered the world of pre-school computer games, and has really become a "computer hog".  But, it keeps her busy, and I'm amazed at how much better she has gotten since she first started playing.  There are games that teach counting, patterns, matching, and more.  And it brings back memories of Krissy and Bubby playing these same games, and they are both getting A's in school.  So the games are definitely a learning experience.

Tomorrow is Good Friday, and we have a family tradition of dying the Easter eggs with the grandkids on that day.  It's always a lot of fun.  Hope you have a prayerful day.  (If that's your thing)

Isn't it great the learning games they have for children. Lacy's boys can work her iPhone as well as she can. I hope you find the camera as I sure would like to see the girls aprons.

The aprons sound like a great idea. Enjoy your egg-dying. I miss doing that (the grands live a distance and we rarely get to see them for this holiday weekend).
