Here’s my son-in-law James creating a Bumblebee Transformer from cardboard, devising a special costume for Charlie this past Halloween. What a transformation! It was impressive. He watched a YouTube video about creating Transformer costumes. Then came up with the plan.
May your birthday today be the beginning of a happy and healthy new year. Lots of love, from your MIL Ruthie
p.s James bought the “Have a Great Day” pen and ink drawing by Addie Cheges and gave it me to several years ago.
Dear Blog Readers. I hope you can help me today. Computer/blog issues are frustrating as many of you know, but not something anyone really wants to spend time on. WordPress Happiness Engineers are trying to assist me. The problem is they can’t see what YOU see on your computer or device.
It has come to my attention that some of my photos on the blog posts are showing up sideways, reducing the enjoyment of viewing the photographs for sure. I’ve been blogging for 9 1/2 years and this issue has occurred recently it seems. Have any of you bloggers experienced this problem.
I take photos with a camera and or an iphone and blog from my computer or my phone. Not sure if the method I use to upload photos is the problem.
I am going to post a few photos and if you would be so good as to let me know if you see them correctly. Also what device are you viewing them on IF you see them sideways. Thank you.
Today Jaclyn and her sister Shannon baked nut rolls together, carrying on family tradition.
Their mother, Theresa, passed last February. (2013) This post is to rememberTheresa, those who knew and loved her and to send hugs to Jaclyn and Shannon as they are missing their mom, especially at Christmas time.
Theresa was one of the four sisters in this slideshow (baking the pizelles) showing the three sisters making nutroll in Pittsburgh- Linda, Georgeann and Theresa, while the fourth sister Marlene communicated via SKYPE in Virginia.
An early Christmas gift, created by Marlene (my DIL’s mom-we share four grandchildren). This year she and her husband hosted Thanksgiving Weekend in Hardy, Virginia.
Know you’ve seen me on the blog more times this week than the rest of the entire year but I wanted to show you her thoughtful and creative gift. Marlene’s Cricut machine skills are amazing. She purchases and downloads an SVG file from the computer, cuts it out of different colored vinyls, centers it, then uses a special machine to press it on thoroughly. I love how she made the heart a sparkly red.
Marlene knows I enjoy knitting so this design* was perfect.
Thanks Marlene. I can’t wait to wear it.
