i love this face!

Don't you think the orange/red pasta set off her lovely blue eyes? Or...maybe this grammy is just crazy about her precious grandbaby?

I thought he'd be mad.
I hadn't meant to ignore him...
I hadn't meant for others to take my time away....

It had been months! I've just been so busy. I really, really had just forgotten about the joy, the happiness from our relationship. BUT.......

I'm back...
I cleared off my desk...
My Oscar, he's just so handsome.
(my viking machine)

This weekend we reconnected. I wanted to make a present for a friends grandchildren. Through facebook i had connected with an old high school friend. And a couple of weeks ago, her daughters house burned down and everything was lost. But to make matters worse...she was just days away from giving birth to her second child. Thank you GOD, everyone is ok.

So i whipped up a couple of birth clothes, bibs and pillow. Then decided to make the same for "big" sis. So i got a new baby doll and made her a blanket, bib and burb cloth. Hope they enjoy!

And as for Oscar...we'll meet again soon ;) xoxoxo

I've been asked to share this before and just now getting around to posting. We've used this at our house for years with hysterical results. Enjoy!

Technological Wizard

Yes that would be me! I'm sure you have all noticed my extreme proficiency at all things technical. But this evening....i out did myself.

My hubby gave me an IPOD for Christmas. I'm just sure that this new piece of equipment is ALL i need to shed those last few pounds of baby weight. (youngest is 18) anyway...thought i'd pop on a few tunes...add a few sermons and hit the treadmill.

Well....about 4 1/2 hours later with help from my hubby, the nice lady at i tunes, the over the computer guy from APPLE, a few suggestions from my daughter over the phone, advice from a couple of facebook friends and VOILA **** I HAVE DOWNLOADED ONE ALBUM****
Still no sermons...just couldn't get that...gonna have to wait for the daughter...but never the less... GLEE the ALBUM on my ipod.

I'm feeling thinner already.

Just thought you should know. Anyone out there need technical tips...just give me a yell! :)

SHOOT i'm just too beat to hit the treadmill maybe tomorrow
