Berkley's First Birthday

Our incredibly cute grand-daughter had her first birthday!

She had two parties, one on the 19th with cousins, and her big party yesterday with friends and family! Grandma Marta was able to fly out for the big event!

You are so loved little Berkley!

Happy 2010

I have learned that blogging's not one of my strong-points.
But I can always keep trying.

HAPPY 2010!

Our precious grand-daughter will be ONE YEAR OLD in 2 weeks. This past year of being a grandma has flown by like no other. Berkley has brought such joy to our family. She is adored and pampered and loved.

Annie-girl turned 20 a couple of weeks ago! She's such a support to her missionary Michael. That boy gets lots of letters and boxes from her! Anne completed her CNA course, and is now enrolling in Dental Assistant classes!

And here's her guy (don't worry about the crutches, he's OK).

Jeffrey will be 23 in a matter of weeks. Gadz. That guy stays so busy between work and school and his sweet Danielle!

Matthew will be graduating in the spring - YAY! He and Val are such cute parents. Little Berk is one lucky baby! Here's their precious family:

I've decided not to make any resolutions this year. I don't keep them usually, so now it's one less thing to worry about. :) I do have goals, tho... Enjoy every minute with my kids and grand-daughter and family, sew like a crazy person, be super creative, and of course (as always) lose some weight. (oy vey).

Hey there!

Ok, so it' been over 6 months since I stopped in.
So let's get updated here.
Here's the family! Little Berk is now 7 months old, trying to pull herself up, loves standing (with help), loves "chasing" the dogs, and she makes us smile constantly. Talk about being in love!

Look at this cute family! Matt, Val & Berkley.

Here's Jeff and his sweet Danielle.

And here's Annie and her Michael. Michael leaves on his LDS Mission in October, he's going to the Belgium Brussells/Northern France Mission!

We'll all be waiting with open arms when he gets back in 2011!

I decided that SUMMER 2009 would be a summer of crafts, and after whipping up some nice crocheted blankets, I decided to get online and figure out how to fix my sewing machines. They've been out of whack for years. I am happy to report I got one running pretty well, and now I can't stop sewing - - quilting mainly. I've made about 6 quilt tops this summer, and started the machine quilting on one. Here are a few pics:

And now I am once again TOTALLY obsessed with cutting up fabric and sewing it back together. It's been way too long, and I've missed it.
OK. That's my quick post for the day. I can finally check "UPDATE BLOG" from my list. :)

Loving Berkley

Know what? Being a grandma is INCREDIBLE! The second you see your grandchild, you are in love, giddy with joy, and committed to them for life. I will do anything for this little girl!

Other than a little bit of jaundice, she's doing perfectly! She's got a bilirubin light that she'll keep on her back for a couple of days.
