CHA Overload

WOW!! The convention center is HUGE and FULL of such fun stuff! I wanted to just have it all but Michelle was the voice of reason! We only got through about half the show but we were able to get some fun stuff though.

We found a lot of fun stuff at We R Memory Keepers that I just had to order!

The Lucky 8 punches are finally shipping soon! I can't wait!!

We were also able to get these Wobbler things. They will be so fun to use to pop up pictures!! Then we are going to join the 21st century with these

The 1st Day

Today was fun. We started the day by attending the Sizzix classes. We had a great time creating 6 different projects. Mostly Michelle created while I worked on my order. It was fun to see all the cool things the EClips can do

Card taught by Karen Burniston.

Cute Sizzix/Vintaj Metal Embossing& Patina Earrings Michelle created.

We made more fun stuff and were able to play with the EClips to cut out around some intricate stamps but we forgot to take pics!!

We finished the day by spending the evening at Disneyland. It was so fun remembering all my childhood memories. Having grown up not far from Disney was great. We would watch the fireworks every summer night before we went to bed. I just knew Tinkerbell was real!!

Getting to know my grandsons - a wonderful treat!

I love being a grandma. It is hard when all my grandchildren live so far away, so when I get the chance to come visit I want every possible moment to get to know them. Linken loves his brother and wants to be with him ALL the time. He think his baby brother should be big enough to play with his toys and he is so willing to share them. He doesn't understand why Grayson doesn't catch them when he tosses them to him. He wants to carry him - scary! Grayson just sits there as Linken pokes at his face to show us his eyes, nose, chin, etc. . . or yanks on his hand so he can bring it close to his face to kiss it. Nikki has her hands full as she teaches Linken to gently love his brother while she must keep both eyes on Grayson to protect him.

While most of my time was spent entertaining Linken, I cherish the precious moments I spent with Grayson. He loved to be held and it was so fun to cuddle with him.

I took many pictures of this new little guy but this was one of my favorites. It is a horrible habit to brake so I never let my babies do it but it is so adorable when newborns find their thumb,

Linken is so much like his daddy as he pushes his luck to see how far he can go without totally breaking the rules. This car was very entertaining for him as it broke the rules of gravity as it climbed up the refrigerator. I love how he is working so hard to make it work like his daddy did.

Playing at the park was one of my favorite activities. Linken was so fun to watch as he played on the toys and interacted with other childern at the park. This was my favorite. As he put his head down he would look at me and say, "Hi Nana" then giggle. Just like his daddy, he knew how to touch my heart.

It was fun to be there for Linken's birthday. His mommy (who is not a fan of baking, cooking etc. . .) made his cake. It was super yummy Nikki and I know when he grows up and looks back at these pictures he will know how much his mommy loves him to get up after just having a c-section to make this very special cake.

Linken and I spent one day at the zoo. I let him lead the way and it was so fun to watch him discover the animals, plants, and rocks along the way.

Nikki you are a good mommy I know these next two months will be a challenge so just remember I am just a skype connection away.
