Home....Where My Story Begins

Monday, February 18, 2008


Joel's jumped into the World of Blogging....Please check out his site at:
Don't think I'm not rubbing it in...I have 2 sons who majored in Computer Science in College, and I'm the first one to attempt to blog....Without their help too!



This past weekend was our first over-night visit with Tyler!
Whew....Next time he gets a room of his own to sleep in!

I ended up waking up every hour. all night long, checking on him. If he wasn't scooting all over his pack n play, I woke up because he was too quiet!

We did the usual grandma & baby things. Leaned all kinds of new songs, played all kinds of new games and had lots of hugs and kisses!


We're planning on lots of grandma & Tyler time in the future....



The Newest Craft Adventure.....Lampwork Bead Making!


Erica & Me trying to make a basic ball! Sounds pretty easy right? WRONG! I'm not sure we ever got a ball to hold the shape of a circle.




Vickie stretching the glass to make thinner strips to add eyes, dots and lines. Of course, I'm not sure any of the add ons turned out....We're going to need a lot of practice!



Erica melting glass to add onto the wire. Can't wait to see what she creates!

Heheheh...The end result was a creation you've never seen before!

Vickie & Me! Ok, I'm the one who burnt themselves 3 times before leaving the studio!

Any more time and I'd probably end up in the E.R. To think I plan on doing this in my own home! Keep the phone close by with 911 handy!
