1st Place Winners!


This photo was taken by our daughter during her recent visit to Minnesota for mom’s 75th birthday celebration. It is of my mom and her great-granddaughter, Scarlett (a.k.a. My Granddaughter!)  It turned out so cute that she decided to enter it into a photo contest sponsored by Pediped Footwear for Children. You should have seen her reaction when she got the notice that the photo won 1st Place!!! Priceless!

Sew much fun!


Our little Savannah has an affinity for all-things sewing! The fascinating buttons on the sewing machine, the fun noise it makes, and that needle that goes up and down so fast! Then there’s those really beautiful pearl-head pins! OH BOY … now THOSE are fun!

In order for us to actually get a project done you really have to WORK FAST and try to do it during naps OR in the wee hours of the night! So, last year, I decided to try and let her be my helper … check out the level of concentration in these photos!



I love that she is fascinated by “sewing” … the pins, the scissors, the machine, the final “outfit” … she’s drawn to it!

THE Adventure Man!


My brother-in-law, Jerry, and his two boys are total outdoor adventurers! Recently my nephew, Jason sent me some photos that I just couldn’t resist using in a scrapbook page! He is an incredible young man … Love Ya Man!
