Remember what Memorial Day means...

Happy Memorial Day to everyone, especially to the troops both here and abroad who have given their everything to protect our USA.  Click here and go to Operation Write Home Bloggers Circle.
Celebrate this holiday by helping heroes keep in touch with home.
If you have ever had a family member in the service, or know someone who is or has been, take the time to check out this blog, you'll be glad you did.
My prayers are with the families, who's loved ones have been lost to this war and to those still fighting thru it, to those who have been injured and who's lives will be changed forever because of it.  To those families who's loved ones have come home however, still a part of them not able to forget the devastation they have seen.  We are blessed that you were there for us.  You are all heroes and will always be remembered as such.  God Bless the USA.

Some day she'll be famous...

My granddaughter was in the news paper yesterday for dancing show that she was in for school.  She's the one with the hat on sideways.  Always a character that one.  She's 8 years old and an attitude that you wouldn't believe unless you heard or saw it.  Always the hand on the hip and the it's my way or no way attitude.  I'm sure you know what I mean.  But ya' have to love her she's a character.
Here is the line from the paper that described her and her mom's comments

"Kaitlin Eastman age 8, of the Chamberlain Dance Team, ball cap fashionably askew, was exhilarated, and found performing before an audience "awesome."

Agreeing was her mother Nicole MacDonald who added, "It is especially nice to know that the funds raised go to a Spaulding High School senior" said the Rochester native. 

A proud moment for grammy!!!!

Heads up!!!

What's that old saying "Two heads are better than one"...well how about 9.  Yup, this is what I've been working on this weekend.  I've got about 100 or so more to go.  Then I have to work on the bodies, arms, and legs.  I'm hoping to get them done this week, if not stuffed at least cut out and sewn together.
I've got a couple of bodies done, just to see what they looked like and what I could do.  I think these are okay, but I'll need lots more.  The best part though is the clothes and accessories.  Once I get to that they will really come to life.  And don't forget the faces.
Well back to work now, just wanted to give you a sneak peak.  I'll be back next weekend with another update.  See you soon "so to speak".  Let me know what you think, look forward to hearing from you.
