I am back from a visit with my family in Florida.  I also brought back a nasty cold.  I think I am prone to airplane sickness.  But, I had a WONDERFUL visit.  Here are some of the memories of the grands I snagged while gone. 

My grandson, Kalani, had his "Evening of the Arts" night and it was a huge success.  My daughter, son-in-law, and I all transformed his classroom into an art gallery.  From this:

to this:

My granddaughter, Lauren, was in a play: "The Murderous Mansion of Mr. Uno"

Lauren is the one holding the envelope. I think she may have a future in acting.

My granddaughter, Maddie, won 2nd place for this art work:
I think she has a future in art.

I also went to Kalani's baseball game:
He could grow up to be a baseball star; but, he already wants to be an inventor and make things to help people.

My granddaughter, Noelle, is taking gymnastics and climbs on everything:

She is such the charmer; and, she also paints.

And last, the grand furbaby, Molly.  Molly is Trudy's sister.

The lucky sister.  She gets to live with a family of four active children. 

Now, I'm off to nurse this cold with homemade chicken soup.

Quilt happy,
