Isaac is going to be a big brother! Of course that means Bill and I get one more grandbaby. We are all so excited, for our daughter's family and for ourselves. We will have one new baby at the end of December and this new baby at the first of February. God's blessings are bountiful and so appreciated! Get ready to hear much more about these babies, and big brother/cousin, from now on!!!

Lovely gift from Faizon

Not often do you find a friend as good, caring and selfless as our Jon. She sent me these beautiful snowflakes last week. In the card she says that she knows I haven't been able to do much tatting lately and that she doesn't want to miss reading about my rainbow tree. So, here are three to get you started. And, she made them with precious hand dyed thread - the two big ones by Tatskool and the smaller one by Lady Shuttle Maker.

It is amazing the friends we all have made, some of them from the other side of the world. What a wondrous age in which we are blessed to live. Even with all the problems of the world, we are able to reach out to each other and create bonds that will last a life time.

Thank you so much, Jon, for your love, friendship, talent and generosity. You are a good sister indeed. Maybe soon I will be better and able to create acts of kindness for you and others. I miss you all very much.

Boudreaux 1990 - 2010

Our precious Boudreaux has gone to a better place. A place full of joy, friends and no pain. We will miss him terribly but he lived a very long, happy life and is now at peace. The beautiful young lady is our daughter Krista. He has another beautiful sister named Candace who doesn't happen to be in this picture of him. He was a good companion to all of us and a good guard dog for Isaac.

Much thanks to Banfield Pet Clinic for their compassion and kindness during this time.

Exciting News!

I'm going to be "Lala" again! Our youngest daughter and her husband are expecting their first child. They just came over to tell us last night. She will be nine weeks tomorrow and due December 31st.

Isaac is excited about the baby too. Hope that will last after it gets here!

With my niece and one of my adopted daughters, Sherry, that makes 3 babies we are expecting this Fall/Winter. God's blessings runneth over!

Looks like knitting will be the focus for a few months now. Tatting will have to wait again.

Cowboy Isaac

No tatting to show off yet, but I have to show you these pictures of my heart. He brings pure joy into the house when he arrives. Wednesday was cowboy/cowgirl day at school. We made these pictures before we went. They panned for gold and line danced. Can you see he is practicing?

Hope to have tatting pictures soon. I'm having a bit of difficulty getting back into the swing of it.

Yes, that's right. I tatted FIVE rings last night. I know it is very little. However it has been since December and I am pleased to have accomplished it.

Moving right along.

Isaac's First Recreational Vehicle!

I know many of you have given up on me, but here I am. I won't even begin to tell you all the things that have happened since my last post. I hope to try to tat again in the next couple of days.

Meanwhile, here is a picture of my Isaac so you can see how big he has gotten. He designed this RV all by himself. He tells Granddaddy that he is Lala's boy and I'm HIS Lala! Melts my heart.

Hope all of you are well and that I can get back to posting regularly very soon. Big hugs and love to you.
