Knitted Babe #4 is done!

Well, she is finally done..... I have to make clothes for all of these little babes, though. So, mom has 4 now. I guess the initial thrill is gone for me!! I still want to make a Frida Kahlo one, though. Think I'll try to make some of famous artists and writers or something!!

We had a wonderful 4th of July here at our house, and 2 more of my aunts even joined us from Chicago! So (these are my mom's sisters and a cousin--all in their 70's and 80's)! We had a blast and at night did fireworks and put Mexican music on and danced!!! Good food, too........ Of course you know there were young people here too!!

Saturday we traveled to the bustling metropolis of Mason City, Iowa, for the bi-annual Vega Family Reunion...(my mom's side- my dad is from Germany..) it was fun and we had great Mexican food! What a treat! Tamales, a pinata for the kids, met people I never knew, etc. etc.

So, my arm is doing great, too, thanks for the nice thoughts!!

My parents and sister are still here, oldest son left today and oldest daughter leaves Sunday.

What a fun exit from Minnesota!

I love your knitted babe #4!! She is so cute. A Frida Kahlo one would be so cool. Can't wait to see that one. Glad you are having such a great time!

I am so glad to hear your arm is better. And what a great family time you had. The doll is precious.
