|Mr. Jack at age FOUR. Here's a page to commemorate his interests. The "boobies" part is a joke - kind of - long story! I've been hanging on to these adorable Echo Park "Little Boy" papers. Love them!|

|This was my 1st layout for 2013 - because nothing says January quite like a beach layout! These pictures were from our annual trip to the beach last summer.|

Geez! I am just getting around to posting my holiday decor. I will be glad that I did come the end of this year though.
I love fall decor almost as much as Christmas. This year, I decorated my mantle with a wreath and other fall accessories...such a sweet reminder that Christmas is just right around the corner!
We can't leave our front porch out of the fall fun!
And now....for the most wonderful time of the year!

Happy New Year! I realize that it is almost February, but better late than never. I have been a terrible blogger lately. I actually entered the New Year working on a new layout. I have several layouts to share as well as my holiday decor, but life happens, and I have been finding it harder to find time to blog about the crafty tidbits of my life. To be honest, blogging is just not that important to my now little nine month old! :) He just doesn't share my passion for crafting.
We had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. However, on January 13, my precious "Giddo" unexpectedly went to heaven. He was the most gracious and kind man. He was a family man, and he savored every second with us. He has 10 GREAT grandchildren - 8 of them being ALL BOY - and when we get together as a family, things get ROWDY! I would frantically get after my boys and remind them to be gentle around their Giddo. However, Giddo would just sit in my cheetah chair with the biggest smile, just enjoying the little lives in front of him. His walking stick would become a "dancing stick," and at times, a light saber. No doubt, his presence will be greatly missed.
Some called him "Colonel," others called him "sir," but we just called him Giddo.

The holidays will never be the same, as he absolutely loved the holidays. After all, it was just one more reason to get together with those that he loved the most. He left a wonderful legacy, and anyone who knew him, loved him. My Giddo never met a stranger! We are immensely blessed to have had him for almost 90 years, but it is just never long enough when it comes to those that you love so dearly.
