Merry Christmas!! We have had such a fun few days... Friday evening visit to see Santa, riding the trolley with Uncle Ken (who then took the kids to dinner so Kent & I could have a date), Christmas church services, Christmas Eve dinner at Kabuto, seeing Christmas lights, "tree time" and gifts, a big Christmas breakfast with Papa, and more celebrations to come with Grandma and family in MS later this week. We'll also be attending the Liberty Bowl in Memphis on Saturday and then seeing in the new year in MS before we drive home.
The new year will hold some fun scrapbooking accomplishments for me - a couple of guest designer spots at some great kit clubs and my stamp design featured at another! Stay tuned! Happy New Year!

Grandmother (All About Eve Challenge #12)

When I read All About Eve's Challenge#12 "Hindsight", I thought immediately of Grandmother, and my regrets about not having spent the time learning from her that my cousins did. Was happy to find a photo I took of her back in the late 70s/early 80s, looking just as I remember her. So glad to have done this challenge, paying a tribute to my Grandmother while also capturing my feelings of regret. We learn as we get older, don't we? I hope my kids will have no regrets one day about their grandparents; this will help me to encourage them, though young, to take the time to learn from Grandma and Papa now!
