April 27,2009 (Monday) 12:21 am

I had a great weekend!!! The kids came and visited us this weekend, so that Pah-Pah could meet the newest member of the family. And of course, the newest Grandson has managed to wrap us around his little finger!

My oldest grandson kept busy by learning to play different games on the DS Nintendo and the Gameboy Color. And, my granddaughter (who by the way, shows NO fear), had fun playing with the kitchen magnets, being tickled by Pah-Pah, dancing with Grandma and chasing the dogs! They are absolutely terrified of her.

My hubby made Pulgogi (marinated pork-Korean food), Kimchi, and Beansprouts! It was delicious!

My Son and MY Grandson
My granddaughter showing her Pah-Pah her Aunt Mona talking with us using Skype!
100% Mischevious...Love the Shirley Temple curls!!!

Look at those eyes!!!
Pah-Pah also gave him a haircut....What a gorgeous child!

The Grandkids have a fixation over refrigerator magnets!

Well, that's it for now! Have a great day!

Welcome Christopher
The Proud Parents!Awwwww!
Daaaaaadyyyy, Let Go Of My Bottle!!!
Momma Kisses!!!!
Daddy Kisses!
Grandma & Keira
Princess Keira Little Dylan...not feeling too good (strep throat)... You're still a cutie!
I've also been making cards. Here is a card inspired by Dawn's Stamping Thoughts. This Lady Rocks! If you're a cardmaker or stamper, watch her videos! The stamps are from Stampin Up, the Designer paper is from Hobby Lobby, and the ribbon is from Michael's.
The Stars spin on this Mother's Day Card! The stamps are from Papertrey Ink. The paper is from Hobby Lobby.
This is a birthday card. I cased this idea from a lady on SplitcoastStampers. I used puff paint on the cupcakes and bugle & seed beads for the sprinkles. The stamp set is from Stampin Up and I used Stampin Up markers.
Here's the inside of the card!
This is a graduation card that I made for a very sweet girl! The stamp is from The Greeting Farm. It is so cute. The skittles are from Hobby Lobby.

Well, that's it for now! Hope you have a great day!

It's been forever....sorry about that! I have been a lazy blogger. But I am still making a ton of cards! I thought I'd post a few pictures!

This is of my DS and My DGS and DGD. My son is definitely a Cowboy's Fan...but the Grandkids.... They take after their "Pah-Pah". This was taken in December 0f 2008.

This is at the Emergency Room at Mercy Hospital in Mason City, IA. My Medtronic ICD/pacemaker/defibrillator wires broke! So I had them replaced!
And $34,394.90 later!!!! (And that isin't all of the bills yet!!!)
(By the way, Medtronic only covers a total of $800 on the recalled wires)

My mom's shop (Seams To Me) during the Christmas Season....Love the Mickey's!

My mom had a car accident... She walked away ALIVE & with a broken ankle!
The Other Car! He had no injuries! Thank God!
Snow in my hometown of Algona, IA!
My daughter (an apparent Steeler Fan) and a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader in Korea!
Can you say "Ornery"???
My sister and my nephew and myself in Texas!
My two sisters & myself!
We visited the Fort Worth Stockyards and Mickey Gilley's Bar
My beautiful niece at the Grapevine Mills Mall. Pic was taken with my phone!
My Granddaughter & her favorite toy...(my daughter's Dog)
Yes, he has quite the underbite!!!!
The reason I'm putting a copyright sig on each picture now is because this picture that I took of my daughter's neck back in December of '07, somehow was taken off my blog and submitted in a Korean magazine (MAXIM). And no, she does not get that magazine...someone showed her it.
Pah-Pah and MY Granddaughter
That's what he gets for Steeler's winning the Superbowl!
You can "THANK" your dad for this!
The Son I never wanted...
Just Kiddin' Love this kid!
My grandson....has such a beautiful soul! Love them eyes!!!
Well, now to my crafts...I got this idea from Dawn!
This woman is so KEWL! You should watch her videos!
My nephew had a "Flat Stanley" project...basically he sends you Flat Stanley and you go places and do things with him and take pictures and send souveniers back. You should check it out on the Internet. Since I didn't go anywhere, Flat Stanley & I made Easter Treats together!
This card is 95% Glitter. I learned how to use lace with glitter at the Houston Quilt Show from the girls at the Art Glitter Institute! The Chichiboulie Fairie is from Bella Stamps. I picked up the purple skittles at Walmart.
And I cannot remember who I got this idea for an all white card from. Probably from the Splitcoaststampers website. That place is amazing!

Well, that's it for now! I'll try to do better at blogging more regular! Have a Great Day!!!
