Happy Dancing

Jan's Crafty Nest had a Blog Giveaway and I was won of the winners!!!
Janet personally delivered the prize today. We are members of two of the same Etsy teams. She is a real sweetheart. I also got to meet her son. Very curious fellow. :-) He reminded me of my oldest son. The prize items included a bunny ACEO, Wildflower Tags that are plantable, bunny confetti, wooden earrings, bunny Scrabble tile pendants with a chain and a woodburned butterfly pendant on a ribbon necklace. Janet made the bunny Scrabble tile pendants. The other items were either purchased by Janet or donated to her.

And a
Pink and White Flower Pocket Mirror by Little Pink Plum
These are the coolest!

I am already wearing the blue bunny scrabble pendant necklace. I showed it off to my friends at work. Many compliments and "Wows!" and "How did she do that? It looks so perfect." I love Scrabble, too. Double the fun!

Thank you, Jan's Crafty Nest!!!

Lovin' the Blues

Lovin' the Blues
I was feeling really blue last week. Then I got to thinking how grateful I am to be able to have the blues. It's like appreciating the sunny days more because we have occasional cloudy, overcast days. Taking the good with the bad, the happy with the sad. Life is good.

My Grandson

Aden Nicholi De La Torre

Aden was born November 21, 2008. I went to the hospital with my son. My son's girlfriend took me to see Aden in the NICU. So sweet and precious. He looks so much like my son did when he was a baby. They are both cheeky fellows.

My son Anthony at 2-1/2 months and his son Aden at 2 months

My son got his first tatoo yesterday. It is of a cross with Aden's name encircling it. Above the cross is Aden's birthdate. Wow!

Silly just like me!
