So Pretty in Pink!

HBPI think every little girl at one time or another dreams of being a princess.  When I think of little girls, I think of the color pink. A pink princess … what could be sweeter?

Christmas Wish

In just a few days we will be celebrating Christmas with our children and their families.  As one of my grandson’s pointed out the other day – it was Christmas.  I tried to explain to him that just because there were presents under the tree, it wasn’t Christmas.  His reply was but it’s snowing outside so it is Christmas.  It definitely looks like Christmas outside this morning as we received a fresh blanket of snow last night, everything look clean and white outside.

For You on Your Birthday

For Your Birthday

It’s been a crazy weekend!  Our son and his wife at in Cozumel enjoying a much deserved vacation.  While they are gone we are watching our 2 year old grandson – it is such a joy to have him staying with us!  He makes us laugh, he is at the “why” stage, he gives us hugs – what more could one ask for???  While he was napping, I did find time to make a card and thought I’d share it with you.
