A Quilt for Gpa

Ever since we found out about Grandpa's battle, I've been wanting to do something for him. When he started chemo, he would get cold and my aunt requested blankets to be made for him. Then, Megbo came home from her mission and we both started throwing around ideas to make a quilt. We wanted to get it done before his birthday, but it wasn't to be. However, we did get it done this month. It was quite challenging to do with a preschooler and toddler under our feet, but it got done. As we put the back together, we realized it was missing something. So, we took the great-grandkids and traced their hands on some of the fabric panels. Another panel says: Made with Love by Megan and Amber for their Grandpa Dave to keep him warm during his fight with Cancer and beyond.

We've got you, Gpa. Always.

In the Last 10 Days...

Mal had conjunctivitis.
Jared had to go to the dentist for swollen gums around his space saver.
Annabelle broke her arm and had to go to the ER
Greg and I got the sniffles.
Malcolm swallowed some foam and puked 4 times in two hours (twice in the car); earning he and I a day in the ER.
Luke puked in the dark in his carseat.
Annabelle complained of a sore throat, spent yesterday morning puking, and found out today that she has Strep.

At this rate, I'm about to go kill the first-born calf and spread his blood above our threshold...
