I met my newest nephew this weekend. I made a quick trip out to Denver to see Jack and Susan. He's adorable!

Jack and Mom.

Checking out Dad.

He looks awfully cute with his new quilt too! That was my big surprise project. Jack's quilt. I also made a diaper bag, called the Nappy Bag, and the changing pad that comes with it. Susan already has an awesome diaper bag but I couldn't help but make the bag. I hope she likes it as much as I do.

I quickly popped in to see a few friends for coffee, (I wish I had time to see all of my wonderful friends in Denver. I felt so much guilt about being there and not being able to see everyone) I saw my Aunt and one of my cousins, and I saw my little brother and his fiance. Otherwise, I helped out with the new baby. I did what I could to help anyway. Laundry, dishes, dinner, etc. I wish I could be around to help more, but we are many, many miles apart. Snuggling a brand new baby was a pretty awesome part of the trip too!

So, now I am back where I can do my own laundry, dishes, and dinners. I have finals this week and next week too. The holidays shouldn't coincide with finals. I haven't done Christmas cards or ornaments this year. If you get an e-card, you know why...

Ellen: You are such a good friend, to do the quilt and everything in the middle of finals, and also fly there ... I'm glad you were able to go and travel safely.
