Belated Valentine's

It is a great thing that "love" is not based on getting Valentine's out ON Valentine's Day.  If it did, boy I failed BIG time!!!  I had very good intentions on getting Valentine cards made for each offspring and hubby.   Well, I did!  Only four of them got them before Valentine's Day.  Those lucky four were the four oldest with homes and families of their own.  The other ten offspring, {those still in the nest}, and Hubby, did not get theirs until Thursday...three days after Valentine's Day!!  Here is a picture of the ones I made for those still at home.  Sorry...I did not even think about taking pictures of the ones I sent to the older ones! 

The pink for the Fair Maidens
The black/red for the Knights in Training
(of course, you already knew this, right?)

 They are not fancy, but were made with lots of love!  I used Stampin' Up! bird punch, label punch, cardstock, designer paper and crystal accent for the eye.  The ribbon was what I had, not SU!  (I will have to post a picture of Hubby's "card" later.  Daughter #2 did the download of the picture and I was working on his.)

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!

Graduation 2017 Post

Finally, here are pictures from Son #6 and Daughter #5's graduation.  I finally figured out what I was doing wrong downloading pictures!!

A Couple of Pictures

I have a couple of pictures to share.  Here is a picture of our newest grandbaby!

Introducing "Mildred Millie Maude".  No, that is NOT her name.  Let's just say when Son #2 and Daughter-in-law #2 decided on a name, before she was born, I would refer to her by her name-to-be.  Not once did anyone ever correct me that I was pronouncing it wrong until about 5 days before she was born.  Dear Son asked me to repeat  her name, not once, not twice, but three times before I realized he was "making fun" of the way I was pronouncing the name. He is not the only one who poked fun at me.  I guess I put the emphasis on the wrong syllable!  So, this ol' Mammi decided to come up with a name until I can either take speech lessons and learn to pronounce it, or a nick name!  {just a side note, Son is NOT impressed with my "name" for her.  oh well, life goes on!}

Here is a picture of 8 of our nesters, and "guard" dog, Lucy.  This was taken last night, October…
