Getting BIG!

Well-here is the latest picture of my beautiful daughter Jen pregnant with her beautiful daughter McKenna. This picture was taken a few weeks ago-so you can imagine how much bigger she is today!! Thank goodness all is well with both of them!

Baby McKenna due anyday now!!!!

Well - as all of you know-our first grandbaby-a girl-is due any time now!!! We are so excited to meet her and see her little face and watch as that little miracle meets her mommy and daddy for the first time! Jen and Daniel are doing great-a little anxious and a lot excited! Jen is getting so big and uncomfortable-the other day she said she wanted this baby out NOW!! I remember those days! We are so very lucky that the pregnancy has been great and Jen and McKenna are doing wonderful. We are expecting a healthy baby girl!!

Father's Day cards

Here are the Father's Day cards I made for my dad and for Craig. My dad got the golfing card and Craig got the camping card.

4th of July

Here are a couple of cards I made for 4th of July. Also a couple of candles--sooooooo easy to make but look great!

I'm Gonna Be a GRANDMA!!!

As most of you know by now I am going to be a Grandma! Jen and Daniel are having a baby girl - McKenna Grace - on or about December 9th. We will have a new little one for Christmas! It is so much fun buying stuff for a baby girl again. I have to reign myself in a bit or I will buy out every store that sells baby clothes! :) I have set up "McKenna's corner" as I call it - her port a crib and bouncer in the den so when we get to babysit everything will be here. I remember the days of having to pack up the whole nursery just to go drop the kids off at Grandma's. We hated that. I don't want Jen and Daniel to have to bring anything but baby McKenna. Besides it gives me a chance to spoil myself with baby stuff right?! Jen's pregnancy has gone great. She is getting bigger by the day. This pic was taken in Maui at 16 weeks. Needless to say she is much bigger now. I will post a new pic when I can get one. Hopefully I will keep this up to date a little better!!!

STSB Round 8

WOW round 8 already!! I have been in this swap for 4 rounds now. It is a really fun swap hosted by my best friend Rhonda on the Cricut MB. Rhonda posts a word or words every few days for a whole 30 days. You have to go out and buy/make this item for your partner. You get to know your partner by chatting on the boards or pm-ing her. It is so much FUN! Here are a couple pics of the box I sent to my partner Kim.

Happy Monday!!!

Hey everyone--hope you had a great Monday. For some reason, after last Tuesday's chemo, I have been sooooooo tired!! I need to get some crafting done for some of my swaps too. I really don't like when I get this reaction--it isn't like I need a nap-it is like 4-5 hours of sleep that I need! It's very hard to get anything done like this. I hope tomorrow is not like this. I want to thank everyone for all your thoughts and prayers for Jess. She is having such a hard time right now after the murder of her friend over this past weekend. She came home from work tonight and cried again and said she is really scared. Scared to walk to her car, scared to go workout, just scared. Knowing this murdering coward is out there is taking its toll on her. We hope and pray that he is caught very soon! Your prayers are so comforting. We have our faith to keep us strong, and more than ever she will need prayer and God's love. She is such a gentle, loving soul and I do not want this horrible tragedy to change that. Only time will heal these wounds. We just need to love her and let her cry on our shoulder. Tomorrow is a new day!

A New Year!

WOW!! Where did 2009 go? I blinked and it was gone! My kids are continuing to grow as adults, beginning new and exciting changes in their lives. Jen and Daniel just got a house! We are so excited for them. They bought in Brea so they are close to us, which we love. So they now plan to start a family! I can't wait for a baby to be around again. Jess is in a great job in her industry, but the drive is getting to her. She is on the road for almost 4 hours a day! Jim is continuing at Fullerton College finishing up his general education, then he has to decide which college to transfer to - to continue his goal to be a physical therapist.
I haven't been good at keeping my blog up to date with pictures of my crafts, etc. but I will try to be better about that this year!
I hope 2010 is good to you all!!!
