Hello Again!

Ha!  Just finished a card and had a few moments to share it with you!  I have a friend at church who was having a knee replacement surgery today.  Very sweet lady!  She taught my two oldest boys in the second grade when they were in the Christian school many years ago!  (today they are 30 and 31!)  Anyway, I wanted to get a card off the her.

Using Pinterest, I CASE-d this from a card that Lisa Young, Add Ink and Stamp, created using the set from  Sale-A-Bration 2015 called Honeycomb Happiness.  Love the chick!  You can make it almost any baby bird!  I used my Aqua Painter and ink pad to water color the images.  I was out of the water color paper that Stampin' Up! carries so I used what I had on hand.  Not so thrilled with the paper.  I layered it on black and my base is retired cardstock with confetti sprinkles.




This is Daughter #7.  She was studying for a history quiz for tomorrow, but took a second out of her precious study time to pose for a picture!

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!
