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


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

  1. What adorable merpersons. That is an epic knitting job. I am incapable of knitting and it is not for lack of trying. I hope you’ll get lot of requests for the pattern. It is lovely.

  2. Such a wonderful Christmas, with fantastic presents and tons of fun!! It should be a movie!! Enjoy all those gifts!

  3. Thanks for sharing your lovely collection of Christmas photos. Those merperson afghans are brilliant. The grand children have the most creative grand parents.

  5. Looks like Maura was belting out a torch song. So serious. 🙂 Love the “sleeves” and the group photo showing them in use. Your photos seem to say that you all enjoyed a wonderful Christmas. Fantastic!

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
