Our little blessings!

Now... who wouldn't want these little ones around 24 -7

Don't you just want to squeeze her???

I love the giggles that I captured here in the tub that nite!

All week I have been waiting to get pictures of the grandchildren in the tub. But it hasn't happened and I only have one more night! While out in Medicine Hat at our son's family I had planned ahead and taken pictures of the girls because I knew I wanted to make a collage of pictures with bathtub photo's to put on the new walls in the bathroom! It's looking like I might not get those pictures this time around. I did manage to get one picture of little Kohen in the tub, but that was it! So I'm posting pictures anyway, but they are not on the walls of the bathroom yet. We had a wonderful week together, and I feel so blessed.... the only thing that could make it better is that all of them would be here together.

We did have that in March when the babies were born, but already it seems so long ago!

with laughter, babies cooing, crying, smiling & toddlers running wild in excitement to see each other...yes my girls are home with their children and I will have a most enjoyable week. The only bad thing is we are having terrible weather...high's of 5 -7 and rain rain, wind, wind and more of the same....this has been going on since saturday and is not to let up for a few more days...
So sad, and I wanted to be out in the yard, playing and planting with the what's a Grandma to do??? Make cookies and paint and all that indoor stuff I guess! So off I go to organize my day with the kids
will post pictures later of all of our activity....and it won't be happening in my sewing room. Can't wait until i can teach them that!!!

Gettin pretty nice out!

I'm thinking it is going to be pretty hard to be down in my basement sewing and quilting...unless of course it Rains! But please don't send any this way!

These days when I have been having a little break from Painting and Reno's I have been slipping out to the deck for a bit of quiet time....And yes they are back.

I so love watching the birds...

Are these grossbeaks???

My favorite.... Yellow finches

Be Kind....makes me think a Mark Twain quote. Kindness is the kind of language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see.

Be Positive....makes me think of my Granny and what a difference a positive attitude can bring

Be Warm....this makes me think of the old saying " Cold Hands...Warm Heart"

It's all in the Attitude....and like the designer of this quilt I too hope to uplift attitudes and values to those I love as it hangs from the walls in my home... I thought it would be a perfect teaching tool to hang on the wall in the toy room for my grandchildren

Well , I have three done...only 9 more to go!

Get focused, Barb

OK, that's it, I really must be productive this afternoon.

I have these Be Attidtudes quilt blocks that are just waiting for my sewing machine to take them on... I wonder if my machine will win out this afternoon. Hope so, then I might actually show my blocks off before I put the quilt together! What do you think? Can I do it? It is snowing, so there is no reason for me not to be tucked in to my sewing corner.

Here goes, but first things first...have to feed those twenty hungry seniors their lunch of Jamaican Pork, Rice pilaf, Green Bean casserole, Citrus Cabbage Salad I of course dessert Coconut & Strawberry Cake(sounds interesting, eh!) I have the help of three other ladies, so don't be thinking wow! what a job for me to take on... Well I'm off to stir the pork and toss the salad and then maybe catch a few minutes at my sewing machine before I have to head out to the Seniors Villa!
