Crochet Update

It's been extremely busy lately, but I have managed to sneak in a bit of crochet time.
 I made this Spiral Lapghan for one of my nephews.
The yarn is Red Heart Super Saver in the colors Black and Cherry Red.  I used a J hook.
I am currently working on this.  It's called the Tiger Paw Afghan.
But, our school mascot is a Wildcat, so I'm just adapting it a bit.
The free pattern can be found here
I'm not finished with this by any means.  I've got quite a bit to go yet.  I'm finding it tedious though as it's all worked in sc.  This will be a Christmas present as well.  Probably for Small T.

Baby E's Blanket

I have finished up another project.
I used the granny square pattern from the previous blanket that I did.
But this time I wanted to use pink for the center circles.
I used the colors Shocking Pink and Soft or Baby Pink.  And White for the rest.
I should have made more squares, but I got lazy.
So, this has 24 squares made into 6 larger squares.
I thought it wasn't quite "wide" enough, so I did a few rows of white dc along the sides to even it out.
The border is just rows of dc with the final row being a row of sc picot.
This will be a Christmas present for Baby E this year.
It's the size of a toddler blanket.

FFA Banquet 2012

Both Big C and Small T are in FFA.
The yearly banquet was held this week.
That's when awards and honors are also given out.
This year, Small T was a "greenhand" or 1st year member.
 Here is a photo of all the greenhands from this year.
Small T is 2nd from the right.
Yep, she's the "small" one.
And here she is with her award, placque and pin.

District Track 2012

Last Saturday was District Track.
Big C participated in Shot Put and Discus.
Here are a few photos of him throwing the discus.
I would share some of him and the shot put, but all I have is video.
By the way, can you tell that Big C is losing weight?
He's lost almost 90 lbs now.

Athletic Banquet 2012

With the end of school just a few days away, there's always a mad rush to "get everything in" the schedule.
As usual, there are many banquets.
These photos are from the Athletic Banquet.
Which is put on by the Booster Club (Sports) of which I was an out-going officer.
Both my kids play sports so I'm sharing some of their photos.
 Boys Track (Big C is in the purple shirt)
 Boys Basketball (Big C still in the purple shirt)
 Boys Baseball (yep, he's in the purple shirt)
Girls Softball (Small T is 2nd from left in the black shirt, tangerine skirt)
