No, not me.  I’m not going anywhere.  But my mom sure did.
Ooooh, I’m going to miss having her around.  She sure did a lot of helping, loving, and spoiling while she was here.  And I can’t tell you how many times she read my kids books throughout the day, made and cleaned up meals, or just sat and gave me a pep talk about taking 3 kids, ages 4 and under, to the grocery store. ((shudder))
Having another baby has taught me something though:
Taking a picture with 3 wiggly monkeys is harder than it was with 2. (At least Grandma kept smiling.)

Grandma quickly calmed those itty bitty baby tears though.
Thanks for coming Grandma.  Dinner time will never be the same without you here.  (Or my bathrooms. Ha!)
. . .
And let me share with you why my husband has nicknamed this sweet baby, “Cheeks”!
Just look at those squishy things.  I know you’re reaching through the screen to pinch ’em.  Caught you. Ha!
I’m sure glad she doesn’t mind several thousand kisses a day, per cheek.  Patient child.
. . .
Okay, enough about grandmas and babies and smooching on cheeks.
I have to brag about some of you for a minute.
Some of you have been hard at work……..and I love it.
These are random photos from the Make It and Love It flickr group found here.
Oh, you haven’t visited the flickr group yet? 
(It’s a photo group where you can add images of the projects you have made, that were made from tutorials over here on Make It and Love It.)
So, get on over there and check it out…….and then add photos of your own work for everyone to see.

So, the photos below are your images, not mine. So lovely.

Beautiful, right?
Great work to all of you. 
(I wish I had room to insert all of your projects in this post.)
And thanks for sharing.
