Halloween Treat Bags

My two granddaughters, their Mom and I made thirty Halloween treat bags for McKenna's class at school and for some of her neighborhood friends.  I premade and cut the ghosts, pumpkins and spiders, and they stuffed the bags and did some gluing.  What fun!!

Halloween T-Shirts

Tonight I made some Halloween T-Shirts for my granddaughters.  I wasn't sure how these would turn out because of the black shirts and the black in the mages, but I think they look fine and I really enjoyed making them.  Next time I will cut out a small white border around them instead of the large square.

This is the front of the shirt.  Click the image to enlarge.

Here is the back of the T-Shirt.  Click the image to enlarge.

Girls' Day Out

A few months ago I promised our six year old granddaughter McKenna, that I would take her out for a manicure if she quit biting her nails.  Well, she did it!!  She let her little nails grow out, so her mom Crystal and I took both girls out for their first mani/pedi. 

It was a BEAUTIFUL, perfect day.  We got our fingers and toes done, Kenna got her hair trimmed and then we had a late lunch. 

Here is the two page layout from our girls' day out.

 McKenna picked out a lovely blue for her thumbs and a bright green for her fingers because her eyes are green and that is her favorite color.  She chose purple for her toes.  She was fascinated with the entire pedicure process.

Delaney has green eyes but insists they are purple because that is her favorite color.  She picked purple for her fingers and yellow for her toes.

Christmas 2011

I finally finished a two page L/O of my family on Christmas morning.  I REALLY struggled with this one.  I just couldn't find any creative mojo at all, but it is what it is!

This is the two page L/O.

The first page is a photo of our granddaughters getting their picture taken with Santa.  Delaney was NOT happy about it at all.  It doesn't show up very well in the photo, but the bottom of the layout is very glittery and so its the word Merry at the top. 

The second page is a collage of photos taken on Christmas morning.  Traditionally the grandkids and parents arrive early in their pajamas.  We all open presents and then have a huge breakfast.

Love, love, love those little faces on Christmas morning!

Time Flies

Oh my gosh, I can't believe it is February already.  I got my first DSLR camera in December and am just recently getting the time to play with it.  Learning the manual settings is HARD, but I m reading a LOT.

Of course our two precious granddaughters are my "models", so I will be posting lots of pics.  Here are a few.

This is McKenna.  She just turned 6 in January.

She is hard to pin down for a photo.  But I love, love this one.

She is such a kindhearted, gentle soul.

 This is Delaney.  She is two and a half.

We had a tea party in the back yard and she wanted to wear a hat. 

Love this photo.  Love, love.

Sad December

December passed by in a blur and it was a sad time for my family.  My father passed away on December 9th and we buried him exactly 18 months after my Mom passed away.  He just gave up and didn't want to go on without her.  They had been together for 65 years. We loved him and he will be missed.

I am finally feeling like things are calming down a bit and I can't wait to get back into a normal routine again.  Maybe soon I will be able to work on some scrapbook pages of our granddaughters at Christmas.  Life goes on...
