A Bit of Free Time...Sort of

I have a bit of free time before I need to fix supper, so I decided to post a couple of things I have been working. 

Sometimes sympathy cards are hard to create.  I want to send
something special, but with the person in mind.   
This is a card I made in a card club.  Kathy, you are the best demonstrator!
Your group loves you!  This will be Son #1's card for this year...
...he is turning 30 in February! (no spoilers here, he NEVER
reads my blog!)
This is the card I created for Grandson E's birthday.  It is one of
the new sets from the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog.
I thought this fit our family perfect since we still have
nine of the fourteen children living at home! 
This card was created from an idea I had seen on
Jan Tink's blog
This is my ministry card for the month.  So far I
have 43 of these made.  I have 15 more to finish.

I am thinking I may have already posted this one previously.
I love the brayer-ing technique! (Thank you Michelle Zindorf
for so many ideas! You were a great teacher!)

This one is my favorites.  Daughter #7, age 10, made this for
Grandson E's birthday last week.  It was her creation start to finish.
I showed her how to water color with my water color crayons and
she was on her own.  She was so proud her card.  She said,
"I'm just like Mom. I think that is a good thing, right?"

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…
