My daughter recenly told us that grandson number 3 is due November 27th!
Matthew has been busy embroidering again this year and recently finished the Mother Goose blocks. I pieced them into a top and he has decided not to sell this one... but to give it to is new nephew when he arrives.
As with my first two grandsons.... the new baby gets a simple quilted fabric quilt.
The middle brother gets a quilt pieced from some of his receiving blankets
And big brother will get a quilt pieced from Goodwill shirts and some of his grandfather's shirts.

Early in the spring the grandson and I went out into the yard, loosened up some dirt and planted some zinnia and sunflower seeds.
When it came time to submit entries to the local county fair I snipped some flowers, stuck them in a vase and entered them for him
He was thrilled to learn that his zinnia arrangement took 3rd place and he earned $4 to put in his piggy bank
He was ready to immediately go out and plant more seeds to win more prizes!

We were able to keep our grandson for a couple days this summer and we visited the Nashville Zoo, the Nashville Science Discovery Center and the Chattanooga Aquarium
|learning good dental hygiene at the science center|
|petting the sting rays|
|posing with his aunt and uncle|
|He loved looking at the aligators and turtles... although this aligator was a bit bored with him|
|While this fake penguin didn't entertain him for long, he was fascinated to watch a male penguin pick up rocks and bring them to the pregnant female... building and adding to her nest.|
