Spring!! Where??

Well, so much for the first day of spring!  Mother Nature gifted us with snow today.  Nothing that accumulated but it still felt like winter.    I got a serious case of numb-butt this weekend with all of the model stitching I am working on.  I am 1/4 way through LK Spring Alphabet and LOVE the vibrant colors.  It feels like spring inside because I bought tulips and irises. 
Today was a mile stone for the family.  WARNING!!  Everyone get off the road.  Son #1 celebrated his 16th birthday yesterday and got his driving permit this morning.  YIKES!!!  It can't be.  Has that much time really passed.  I blinked and now its gone.  My husband and I were reflecting how much things change as they grow up.  We used to be able to go and do anything.  Throw the kids in the car and off we went.  Now it's a struggle to get them to get in the car to go on an adventure and then when they do the car ride is torture.  I miss the days of playgrounds and picnics.   
Above is a picture of Miss Daisy. Bad picture but the best I could do with the nasty weather.  She will be 8months old tomorrow and my how she is growing.  She is now checking in at 85 pounds and today when I commended her on "good sit" she proceeded to put her paws on my shoulders and lap my face (YUCK)  I couldn't help but scream No Kisses but was cracking up laughing at the same time.  I am 5 '2" and she was face to face with me.  Oh what a joy and pain at the same time.  I will try to post pics of stitching tomorrow but hope to have a finishing day if all goes according to plan and life doesn't get in the way.

Happy Stitching!!

Daisy is lovely. I am sure she is also spoiled:) At least she would be if she were in Alabama. It was a balmy 80 degrees here today. We had a lovely 3 days of springtime weather 2 weeks ago. The pollen has my dark grey car a lovely yellow.Cannot wait to see the shop models

Daisy is beautiful and she clearly loves you!

Teenagers driving can be a complex thing. You're happy that they can cart themselves from home to activity, etc but it's a huge sign that they're growing up.

Congratulations on the milestone on son #1. Miss Daisy is a sweetie. My Chelsea isn't as tall, but she moves in for the kisses any time I lean over for shoes or whatever reason. Should I say that our high was 82 yesterday? That's 2 degrees shy of a record, so it was warmer than it usually is this time of year. I send some warmth your way if I could!

Oh I remember my first getting a drivers license. It was nice to have run errands.
Hope spring comes soon, can't wait to see what you are stitching.

Daisy is a doll! Oh...my DD is not far from her learner's permit. Where did the time go?

Happy Birthday to your son! I tell my boys that if they plan on driving like they do on their video games, then they won't ever be getting my car!

Daisy is a beauty!

Congratulations to your son - we are fortunate in the UK that the minimum driving age is 17 - so I have 1 year before my oldest qualifies. That will be a very scary moment!

Daisy is a real sweetheart! I bet that was one big kiss!
Good luck with those models. Hope to see pics soon.
