Things to Share

Ahhh!  I actually have a few minutes, stolen ones, to 'catch up' on sharing a couple of projects.

Son and Daughter-in-law had there precious little bundle on October 14.  She is amazing!  Love all the newbie of a newborn, but I do not miss the endless sleepless nights.  Maybe it is because I have been out of that for several years.  An occasional sleepless night I can handle.  So I can hardly wait to start having sleep overs!!!!

Okay, here are some pictures that I have taken of the antique rocker that belonged to my great-grandmother.  We refinished it for another generation to be nursed and rocked!


The Chair
(I forgot to get a picture in the staining process)

The Fabric

The Seat
(base and cushion)

The Tool
(yes, an electric carving knife!)

 The Finished Project


We were very happy with the finished project!  Here is to many babies and memories!!!!!


Now for Daughter #1...here is a picture of her baby shower invitation.

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!!








They Said "I Do" and Here We Grow Again!!

"I do!"  Lovely words.  Son #4 and Bride were married on the 31st of March.  After weeks of planning they are finally married and home from their honeymoon!  (pictures to follow soon)   We are pleased to have a new daughter in the family!

Speaking of new...yes, a new babe is growing...Daughter #1 and Son-in-love #1 are expecting their second child in the fall!  Grandson E told us!  At first we just looked at him, dead silence in the room, and looked at his momma...and she was smiling!  YAY!  Our "grand" total will be 11 come fall!!!!!!

Soon we will meet Granddaughter E...!  Eight weeks until her due date...but will probably meet her in the next few weeks!  Everyday in the womb is a day of victory!

That's all for now!  I have had to update this about 3 times!  It has been in my "save" for several weeks!  As soon as I get a few minutes of free time I will be back!
