Being Grandparents is Grand

We have the kids for the week while Marsel spends a few days on a mission of mercy.  This morning was warm and sunny-welcome back Florida!

  3. Are the shades you made roll up shades? If they are I didn't know you could make those. The grandkids look so happy enjoying their time.

  4. Everytime I visit your blog I am always amazed at all the hard work you and your family do! The house is coming along wonderfully and I can barely wait to see it finished:)


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog! If you can't get the blog to accept a comment-email me! If you don't have a blog yourself, use my email so I can then email you back-I love to respond to those who leave comments! Thanks!
