Scrap Happy!


How good it is to be able to get a little time to work on my scrapbooking projects.  My friend, Tanya, spent hours with me teaching me how to use my Photoshop Elements program.  I can't begin to tell you just how happy I am to be able to use this program to design my scrapbook projects.  I certainly hope I never get too old to learn something new.  Thanks Tanya!  I am excited!


Our adorable Grandson!  He is the happiest little boy! 


Our daughter, Lori, dance recital pics when she was a dance student at
Sandy's School of Dance in Oneida, NY.  I think she was about 10-11 years old. 
 Should have dated the photos????  She was just beautiful and still is...and still dancing!

Brighten Your Corner - Ye Are the Light

Have you ever noticed the great differences between people you meet?

Some are sunshiny as a hand full of forget-me-nots.

Others come on like frozen mackerel.

A cheery, comforting nurse can make a hospital stay bearable.

An upbeat secretary can make visitors glad you came to see them.

Every corner of the world has its clouds, gripes, complainers and pains in the neck---
because many people have yet to learn that honey works better than vinegar.  

You're in control of your small corner of the world.

Brighten it...YOU CAN!  



Thought this Tropical Sunshine Cake
might brighten your world!

3/4 cup sifted powdered sugar 
1 cup flaked coconut, toasted 
Whipped cream

Happy Birthday Grandson





Happy Birthday Grandson!


Our happy little grandson turns four years old today.  We couldn't be more thankful for such a wonderful little guy who just brings such delight to our lives.  He continues to be one of our riches blessings.  He is so kind and big-hearted, happy and  is always smiling.  One of his newest sayings is, "I love you to the Moon." after which he expects a returned response of  "I love you to the Moon and BACK."  Well, that pretty much how we feel about him....we love him to the moon and back!  Our hearts ache for not being able to be with him in New York for his birthday because of grandpa's knee surgery.  We will be definitely be making a call to him to serenade him with the happy birthday song.



Have a Happy Day,
