Getting Ready for the New Baby!

We have a new grandbaby coming next month. I am so excited to meet him. 

Since our other grandson is still in his crib. We didn’t want him to feel like he was being kicked out of the crib, so I have been fixing up the cradle for the new little one. IMG_7730

I had a little extra fabric left over from sewing the crib stuff, so I was able to use it for this project. I love sewing for my grandbabies!


I hope he sleeps cozy in this sweet little cradle knowing that he is loved by so many. Come quick sweet baby, not too quick, though!

My First Memory! (I think)

I was born the 4th child in our family, after 3 older brothers. I think all of us were born in about 5 years. My mom was very overwhelmed to say the least. She was a wonderful mom to us.

We lived in a cute little house my dad helped to build. I loved that house.

The first memory I have is standing and twirling in a circle in the kitchen of that house. Spinning, and spinning, until I was dizzy. Then I would fall to the floor and just lay there watching the ceiling spin in circles. Then I would get up and do it again.

I think I was about 3 years old.

I watched Emily spin our grandson around on my office chair. The look on his face must have been something like the look on my face all those years ago. The look of pure enjoyment and playfulness.

What a fun memory!
