Let's try this again!!

Well howdy there!  Sorry I've been missing in action, a lot has been going on since my last post, from last year.  Geesh....where is the time going!!  I had tried quite a few times to get on Blogger but it wouldn't allow me too giving me the error with cookies....but guess I finally won that battle :)
So,what have I been up to since I last posted?  Well we have welcomed our 6th grandbaby on December 14th which was a wonderful Christmas present to all of us.


Carissa had to be induced a few weeks early as her blood pressure was high but all turned out great and Carson Roe was born at a whopping 7 lbs. 10 oz. and 19 1/2" long, healthy and happy.  We couldn't be happier.  She was able to take 12 weeks off for maternity leave but had to go back the first of March which was very hard, but it is only part-time so that is good for her.  It's so hard for first time Mommies to be away from their little ones.  I do have the privilege of watching him as I have the flexibility of working from home, so Monday - Thursday I get this precious little guy.  His other Grandma watches him on Friday's. 
Life gets so darn busy at times, I need to at times remind myself to slow down and take care of myself also.  I haven't been able to take as much time with my crafting as I've been busy as stated above, also our oldest two granddaughter's were having issues so we had them staying with us a few weeks, birthday's of our 3 kids were happening and well, yes just life in general.
I have done a little crocheting for Carson.  His parents love to fish so of course Nana had to make a special hat for him ;)  Isn't that just the most contagious smile!!  lol
Have done a few smaller items.  I made each of the two older granddaughters these for Christmas.  I thought I had taken a picture of the other one (done is black and whites) but can't find it but gives you the idea anyway.  They loved it them and have their "girly" stuff in it as they put it lol.  It is so nice to have grandbabies who love things that are made from the heart :)
Just one of the chalkboard frames.

Well that's about it for tonight....need to get dinner warmed up for the hubby.  He gets home later which means that he usually gets it re-warmed unfortunately but we're just happy we both have jobs so it's OK.
I hope that you all have a wonderful evening and I'll be back on with new things as I'm having that yearning for my crafting again!!
