As you gather with friends or family this weekend for a cookout/bbq and are having a good time please take a moment to remember the fallen men and women of our country who died for us so that we could have our freedom.

Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day because it was a time set aside to honor the nation's Civil War dead by decorating their graves. It was first observed on May 30, 1868 and its purpose was to decorate the graves with flowers of fallen soldiers who died in defense of their country.

In the 21st century we honor the nations fallens soldiers on the last Monday in May. At Arlington National Cemetary in Washington, DC a small American flag is placed at each grave. Also, the president or vice president will give a speech and a wreath is laid at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Enjoy the long weekend and have a safe one!

I have been away for a few days. Was out of town to attend a wedding. The wedding was beautiful...the bride and groom were beautiful. Don't have any pics to share. Hubby and I are friends of the brides parents, so we helped out a lot so they didn't have to do stuff so they could enjoy the day with their daughter.

With the long weekend coming up and the children soon out of school I have lots of plans for sewing and gardening. More on that to come. Hopefully I will have some pics to share come Tuesday.

Now that we are back home, it's back to laundry, dishes and the like. Ah, it's good to be home. : )Pin It Now!

The day after.....

Alright ladies, it's back to reality for us. LOL, we got a day off without cooking and got pampered a bit, but now it's back to life as a mommy....and we love it!

I had a chance to practice some more free motion quilting and I think I am just about ready to finish up the table runner project from class. If it turns out half way decent, I may try some potholders too. One can never practice too much.

I may post a pic of it later on stay tuned.

Enjoy your day!
