I came across these loop embroidery I did in the 80's when I was in my 20's. I was 20 when I found out I had Rheumatoid Arthritis. I have had RA for over 33 years now. It has taken a toll on my hands. I wonder if my hands could handle finishing the poodle?

I am so thankful to get to spend time with my youngest grandson. He will be starting school next year and will be 5 in Dec. My oldest grandson Joshua will be 16 in Dec. My granddaughter Allyssa is 13 and will graduate 8th grade in May. Where has all the time went. They grow up so fast. 
As they get older I don't get to see them as much! That's why every second with them is a blessing!

I wanted to try get a blog in before Halloween. I don't have much time to write but I will squeeze a few pictures in! We had fun at Mother Nature's farm in Gilbert AZ and the 74th Annual Halloween Carnival in Buckeye AZ.

Happy Halloween 

Have a safe Halloween!

One of a kind.....

I had to share picture of my sister's friends house! They are so artistic and their home displays uniqueness.
I just love it! 

I hope you enjoyed looking at the picture. The inside is even better but I didn't want to invade their inside space.

Las Vegas

I was in Vegas this week while eating a the Spice Market (Planet Hollywood) I had to do my own "Cupcake Wars" One each of red velvet, Smores, Caramel, Kahlua and Chocolate with cherry liqueur. The Chocolate with cherry liqueur won!

I know she's not the real deal but I always have to say Hi to Ms. Liberty!

Do you know that all the times I have been to Vegas I have never went into the Luxor Hotel and Casino. Maybe next trip!

On the trip home it looked like we were going to drive right into Lake Mead

Happy Birthday Theresa!

Happy 80th Birthday to my Mom ~

My mom turned 80 years young. We had her party at my sister Gloria's house in Farmington NM.We sure had fun decorating it!

It was a great party! We invited lots of family and friends

We wanted to make this birthday special for her. It is the first birthday since my Dad's passing away in March. It has been really hard for her but it is to be expected since they were married for 61 1/2 years.

We had cake, ice cream and watched a slideshow I made for her with over 150 photos from when she was little through now. We cried and we laughed. She loved it!

We all gathered around to sing Happy Birthday to her

Mom, myself,  my sister Gloria and brother-in-law Eddie and my sister Cindey

 My granddaughter Allyssa with her Great Grandma McKee

 After everyone left but family we all went on the patio to watch the sunset it was a beautiful night!
