I'm an Older Blogger!

I love to read Kelly's blog even though I am "older"!  She has beautiful children, one the same age as one of my granddaughters, and I love seeing their similarities, but also have just come to love reading about Kelly's life, family, friends, faith, food, etc. 

On Fridays she has Show Us Your Life posts where she asks readers to share their blog link if they fit the category.  Today is "Older Bloggers", meaning over 50 and I certainly qualify!

I'm a knitter, crafter, wife, mom, and Nana to 3 beautiful granddaughters.  Bethany - 14, Nikki - 4 and Sophie - 2.  I'd love to hear from any of you who found me from Kelly's Corner!

On another note - just had to show you some things my friend Doris and I made at work today for the gift shop.  We normally sit behind computers and are not floral designers, but I think these turned out so cute. 





Someone said the little owls look a little scary, but I love them. 

Everybody getting ready for Thanksgiving?  We went food shopping tonight and I think I got most of what I need.  This weekend Amy & I are going to try and make Thanksgiving cake pops and will post a picture if they are presentable!

Keep my cousin, Jeff Travis in your prayers.  He was in a terrible accident a few months ago and yesterday had a bad reaction during and after surgery and is critical.  You can read about his terrible ordeal and amazing journey on a facebook page created to keep everyone informed about his condition - Prayers for Jeff Travis.  He is a wonderful Christian man who deserves all our prayers and for this terrible ordeal to have a good ending.  Pray for his wife Rita also, she defines the word "faithful".

Have a great weekend!

I didn't find you from Kelly's Korner and I'm an older blogger too and proud of it.

Hey, thanks for checking out my blog. You are an amazing knitter. I showed my daughter the cowl so she could make me one. Your granddaughter with the back surgery breaks my heart. I will be praying for her. We had a girl in our church who had the same thing about 25 years ago and today she is a beautiful lady who has great posture.

Diane, you have a beautiful blog! So very pretty and WOW, are you talented! Everything you showed you made was just fabulous!

You are especially blessed with 3 granddaughters of different ages...how neat! Miss Sophie is a living doll!
Pray that your cutie Nikki gets well and has no more problems with her spine!

Have a blessed Thanksgiving! We do all have so much to be thankful for, don't we?

Hi Diane, I enjoyed visiting your blog and thank you for commenting on mine! I am sorry to read about your cousin, I checked out the info on facebook. I will pray for him. And your sweet granddaughters are adorable. I'm sorry that Nikki has had to deal with that surgery. You asked how I balance time with all my grandchildren; it is never equal as one family lives close and the other 2 families do not. But we keep in close contact and do the best we can to know them each as individuals. So far, so good! Happy Thanksgiving! God bless you.

I'm stopping by via Kelly's Korner. I'm also an older mom blogger.
I hope that your brother gets well soon.
