SHOUT OUT

I would like to give a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS SHOUT OUT TO ALYSSA!!!

Alyssa is so insanely talented, as you may already know from the Christmas stocking she made for Abigail. She also made the pink baby blanket used in our birth announcement photo.

Following in the creative, talented footsteps of her great-grandmother and grandmother (and probably generations before) she worked feverishly to create a beautiful new blanket to enter into the Hillsborough County Fair (Strawberry Festival). Alyssa had asked for us to bring her the Christmas stocking last month, so she could enter it if the blanket wasn't finished in time. She was able to enter both creations and was awarded ribbons for FIRST AND SECOND! First place was for the blanket and second for the stocking.

ALYSSA, YOU ROCK!

PS: Alyssa, your aunt thinks if you had put a framed 8x10 of Abby IN the stocking, you would have won 1st for it too.
