31 MARCH 2017

The past week literally flew by, mainly in the car! We drove over 2000 miles in 6 days!
Our oldest is getting married to the most wonderful lady, truly a match made in heaven!
Eric and I needed to go to Chicago to line up the rehearsal dinner and Nat & Nate found a great restaurant. We had dinner there, then looked at the logistics of the restaurant- Nat booked it the following day. Then it was out to the western suburbs for the wedding shower and to meet Nat's family. The shower was beautiful and the 'in-laws' amazing. I'm just saying: 'a match made in heaven all the way around'. 
To top off an already over the top weekend, our youngest drove to Chicago from Minnesota! So good to see her, my grown up baby! 

Eric drove the entire trip and I knitted, (except those two hours we were locked in dense fog, the kind one can hardly see past the car hood...uhgg). I completed one project and put a big dent in two other knitting projects. Knitting in the car does not feel natural to me but the time sure does fly. 

While I was gone my sweet baby girl grew! She is exiting babyhood and has one foot in toddlerhood.
Taking her first steps on her own, knowing what she wants and more what she does not want. She packed away her soft indoor voice, exchanging it for the all on excited outdoor voice! This little girl keeps a smile on my face!
I'd say it has been a perfect week here at Little House.

The quilt was given to Nat and Nate-they loved it! 
I'm so glad all my kids love the quilts I make for them and are always grateful to be gifted my endless supply.
