Another Grand Time!

We just got back late last night from ten days at Sylvan Lake, catching up with Jill and Michael and our grandkids. We had a wonderful visit, saw lots of people, did lots of laundry and cooking, and best of all, had lots of fun playing with the 3 little people.

I read lots and lots of stories but didn't mind a bit. These two are like little sponges, soaking up every last bit of information off each page.

Daniel has changed a lot since early July when we left for home. He is such a happy boy with smiles and giggles for everyone.


This morning while sorting through ten days' worth of mail, I came upon two wonderful surprises: my last puzzle piece made by Pat Winter and a wonderful Halloween card created by Pam Kellogg. Thank you both very much!

Isn't it pretty? Pat also sent some of her lovely ribbon and some siggies. I will have fun with them! If I only lived closer, I'd take a class in her new studio but will have to remain content to do that vicariously through her blog.

Isn't this just the coolest card? Not only is
Pam a talented cross stitch designer, she also makes very creative cards. This one is just perfect to share. I wonder how she knew that Jill and I once saw an owl just like this on top of our spruce tree. We watched for a long time until it flew silently away.
Happy Halloween!

That is a VERY cute card. It's so different with the blues instead of the regular orange and black. Very creative.

Your grandkids are ADORABLE, but I bet you already knew that.

Welcome home Judy! Those kids are wonderful and that first picture is a total keeper; for them as well as you. And check out the baby in the second picture! How could you not love that face!
