grandbabies !

hello!

yup!  you know it ~ cutest grandkids, right?  lol  

for sure ~ every child is precious!

we sure enjoyed ours, as we don't get to see them very often, unfortunately.  maybe... someday?

"little" aiden ~ two years old, and cute as a button.  and then his new brother, liam.  precious.  it's really difficult to come up with something unique, in describing these sweet faces.  what i know, and can only say... what a blessing!!  i know so many of you know exactly the same thing, right?  

and now that we've become grandparents, it's easier to understand the saying i've heard so often:  "there are no grandchildren of God."  

so true!

 oops!  i think aiden's new "tatoos!" {shall we creatively say} reflect a certain lapse on the part of his grandparents in watching him?  too funny!


sweeeetest faces... and there was lots of kisses and hugs shared all around!  

we loved every minute!  

and we are thankful.

hope you had a blessed weekend and holiday, too! 

see ya later~

i have some news to share about my latest sewing 'renewal' as a couple  clothing patterns have surfaced in my studio!  lol!  hey!  I've even actually sewed up a skirt or two.    yay!!!!

Sketchbook ~ Heaven

Hi everybody!  I have truly missed the blog world for the past week, and here's to wishing you all a Happy September, even if it almost a third over now. I hope you had a sweet, sweet Summer, and if you have children, they are settled and finding their groove in their school settings.
Aiden's first football!
We've been logging on the miles in Idaho and Washington ~ some very long road trips.  First to Idaho to visit Brian's Mom, and a small family get-together with Brian's older sons, and brothers, then on to celebrate our grandbaby Aiden's first birthday with his Mom and Dad in Kennewick, WA and back to Idaho.  Then on to Spokane, WA, where my dear Mother-In-Law had surgery to remove a tumor of lung cancer.  It has turned out well, and she came through the surgery very well, with a 98% chance from the Dr's that the cancer does not appear to have gone into the lymph nodes.  Alleluia and Amen!

I love this little blond head, dark eyelashes, and cute little {chubby} belly!

In between all, I had time to bring out my sketchbook while waiting through surgery, and even found I could watercolor with the Peerless watercolors easily in the car, especially with a waterbrush.  A few bumps on the road only adds to the great creative adventure?!
 And... we are SO GLAD TO BE HOME!!  I'm miles behind, but it's like putting lotion on dry skin... it just feels so GOOD and comfortable to be back home.
It's a little slice of heaven on earth, no doubt about it.  We are indeed, blessed.  
Have a great week!
XO
Leslie
