birthday today. It does not seem like she should be that old. Her dad is trying to get her
to wear the big hat, that she wanted no part of
when the waiter staff came to sing Happy Birthday
Here she is with her cousins, brother
and sister at her party this evening.
This is all my grand kids plus this years foreign exchange
grand kid from Japan. I can tell by the look
on my grand daughter's face (far left) that her
older brother (top left) is pestering her....the look on
his face tells the story. Being the older brother
of two younger sisters.....we see that look on his
face quite often.
She is not my baby grand daughter any more but she
still likes gramma to rock her and read to her.
I could be such a better grandma if I did not have
this Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
This disease has cheated me from being
the kind of grandparent that I had planned
on being but I am thankful for
the happy times I am able to share with
When I first saw these shoes at the store I thought,
I would have loved wearing those when I was a little
girl. OK, that means they need to end
up on the feet of one of my granddaughters!
They only had small sizes so the other 3 girls
didn't get peppermint shoes. My oldest granddaughter,
12 years old, was probably relieved!
We had to get red fingernail polish to match
the shoes. She loves her nails polished.
Red is my favorite nail polish color even if
I don't wear it often.
Wearing peppermint shoes and red nail polish
can make a little girl feel great.
Her birthday is 2 days after Christmas and she
is growing up too fast!
I wish I could find peppermint shoes to fit
her again this year.....I think gramma had more
fun with the peppermint shoes than anyone.
Ladies don't you wish you could have had a
pair of peppermint shoes when
you were a little girl?
This is a song I listen to and I find that it calms my spirit as I
travel this journey called life, while living daily with
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.
There are times that the valleys get very low and the hills
are like mountains that I can't seem to climb. When those days
hit me, it is at the foot of the cross I turn to, as nothing else can
replace what I find there in Christ JESUS.
out and see what I had.I guess they are like orphan blocks.....except that they
didn't have a destination in the first place.
I starting making these earlier this year and
plan to make more R/W/B blocks until I
have enough of ones I like to put together
a quilt top.
This Pineapple Block was one of my first paper pieced
attempts. I would really like to pull it from the
others and make a whole quilt out of these.
Not sure if that will happen......if it does it
will take me quite a while to accomplish.
This heart was also paper pieced and now I
need to get it appliqued to a white background and
square it up.
