Photo Booth APP


Recently I needed a portrait of myself. I have been avoiding the camera for a while now. There are just too many other people and things  that make much better  photos. But I went to my computer and sat in my chair. Without any problem at all I used the photo booth app on my Mac .  Unlike stretching my arm a mile, it was so easy to get a photo quickly without any help. I'm posting it here because unlike most of my pictures, it looks better than I do.

I Can't Believe



I can't believe it has been so long since I've posted here. It certainly is not for a lack of pictures. I've just gotten behind on everything, can't think or work as fast as I had been. So please bare with me as I try to catch up on everything.

As you can tell this layout  is from John and Caleb's recent trip to Chinas and the great wall. 

If you can't  read the saying by Confucius, this is what it says, "Wherever you go, go with all your heart." I would say that we have travelers here who were doing just that.

I hope to be back to the computer with more and more layouts. Sorry I was away so long. It is a joy for me to share my love of scrapbooking and my family with you.

The Great Wall of China


This excited mother and grandmother is so anxious to let you know that  my son and grandson, John and Caleb have returned safe and sound from China, where they traversed the Great Wall at Jinshangling. I will be making lots of layouts later, but I'm just showing a few pictures together now without any embellishments. Since they took so many pictures, I may do something more simple that making artistic layouts.

Picture Day at School



 Our handsome grandson Oliver is in kindergarten in Colorado.  It was hard to decide, but his mom and dad made up their minds and Oliver's as well to send him to the same IB school as his older brother.  It is so good to see him march off  to school hand in hand with his Caleb.

I'm sure he will get along well and made good friends. He is very kind hearted and we love him very much.

TuTu Cute


Back in July when Beth and the kids were visiting her relatives in the Columbus area, Julia's cousin Katie was a good influence on her. Here she is teaching Julia a ballet step.  In her family, dance is a must.  It surely looks like Julia is picking it up quickly.

Hawk's Nest State Park


John and his family enjoyed seeing Hawk's Nest in West Virginia with his sisters April and Kim at the end of July.

I would like to see it this fall,  to see if the colors are as beautiful as I imagine. Perhaps we can do that. It really isn't that far.

While at April's, Beth took some beautiful photos of  Swallowtail butterflies.
