    Mikhail, Halloween 2014

    Mikhail dressed up as a cute little fireman this year for Halloween. Mommy and daddy took him around her parents neighborhood to go trick-or-treating.

    I used "Be Gracious" by Cindy Ritter to make up these layouts. The colors are wonderfull...fallish, but can be used for any kind of layout.

    Mr. Elf

    Grandma (that's me) found a cute pattern online to crochet an Elf (Elf on a Shelf) for our little grandson. If you know the Elf on a Shelf theory, you are supposed to hide him until he arrives on Dec. 1 (or the day after Thanksgiving) and then he leaves on Dec. 24. The Elf, whom you should name, "watches" over little boys and little girls and reports back to Santa. Moms and dads move the Elf every day into a different position or doing a "naughty" or "nice" task. Children are not supposed to touch the Elf.

    So...I was not sure if the new mom or dad wanted to do this, so I went ahead and made Mr. Elf.  If they wanted to do this, great, but it is a big task to do every day for a month and then every year for who knows how long!  If not, our grandson could just play with him.

    Here are my layouts...I think they choose the later option.

    Niagara Falls, NY

    We went to Niagara Falls, NY to visit my dad in mid November. NF is back home for Ken and I. Keith and the other two boys grew up going to visit grandmas and grandpas there.

    We went down to the falls, it was 30 degrees outside, so was pretty cold, especially at the falls with all the mist. Everything was frozen, was difficult to walk on the ice.

    Here are two layouts I created using Sparkle by TSSA, Jodi Watson.  I also used two templates by Brenian Designs

    The first one is of Keith, check out that paper behind him, I think it looks like the falls!

    This is of the three of us, Kathy, Ken, Keith. A local came down to the falls with his son (at least we thought it was his son). He asked if he could take our here it is. You can see everything iced over in the top photo.
