The Bestest Grandparents!

Happy Friday everyone! I can't believe it is February already! Where has the time gone?! I am a little happy and sad today... happy that my baby girl (who is actually  my oldest but will always be my baby!) is celebrating her 22nd birthday today! I'm a little sad because that reminds me that I am getting really old!! heehee!! Anyway.... Happy Birthday Courtney!

Now on to this week's challenge at Frosted Designs! We are challenging you to use ribbon and/or twine on your cards, layouts or project. I don't know about you but I have plenty of this laying around my office! My kids are so lucky to have such wonderful grandparents and they are truly blessed to still have all of them in their lives. Both sets of grandparents are healthy and love to do things with the kids! I found these photos of when Lauren was pretty little and we all spent the day at the zoo. For the layout I focused on my parents with Lauren and her cousins Brayden and Emmy!


The photo in the upper right is one of my all time favorites. Lauren wanted to feed the geese so bad but everytime one came near, she would be too afraid to hold her hand out. Finally, my dad went over and held her hand, assuring her that she wouldn't get bitten. Eventually she gave in and when that goose finally ate some corn out of her hand, she squealed with delight! It was such a tender moment! And I also love the photo of my mom walking with Lauren while she took her pony ride! Lauren loved having Grandma (instead of mom) walk with her! I love having these photos to document a special day!

Okay... enough about my family! Now we would love to see what you can do! Stop over at Frosted Designs to check out all the inspiration the Design Team provided and then link up your project for a chance to win this week's prize!

So cute Barb!
I'm still sitting here freaking out that there is any mathematical way for you to have a child that age! =)
For real!
Hope you are doing great! Hugs!
