Crazy Fun- Mermaid Tails, Sharks and Karaoke, Xmas Sweater Selfie and Family!

Froo Froo Marlene has been crocheting for months. Hand work takes time

Her efforts paid off though cause the grandkids (who all swim for Ohio State Swim Club)  were excited to receive their aquatic afghan sleeves. Marlene also created some photo books for each grandchild too, and I got a creative magnet and mug with all the grandchildren featured!

She made one for Baby Charlie, too.  Here he is being swallowed up by his Jaws blanket!

PapPap picked out the wild and crazy SingTrix Karaoke Machine (as seen on Shark Tank, too) It provided a lot of entertainment and everyone wanted a turn.  Pap Pap’s rendition of Elvis’ Love Me Tender is still at number one for the performances.

 

 

 

A very merry Christmas and I just read the Weekly Photo Challenge is NOW

Now

Sometimes, we get caught up in nostalgia, future fantasy, or both, and we don’t embrace the “now.” For this week’s challenge, take a moment to notice your present, and share a photo of it.

If you are a crocheter and want the link to the patterns, I’ll get them from Grandma Marlene in the morning

You may have seen the wedding photos after the wedding on November 12, 2011 but Mother of the Bride can’t be the photographer, too.

New Family Handshake

You know those photo greeting cards with the tiny hand in the big hand?

The touching closeups?

I was going for a similar feel with the new parents and grandson Charlie who was a week and a day.
