The Blog of Shame

My poor Grandma!! The boys and I gave her this camera for Christmas. I thought it would make a perfect gift for 4 reasons.
1) We are the only Grandkids that never give her a gift at Christmas (for years!).
2) She lost her camera in a flood and I miss the pictures that she took at all of our gatherings.
3) I don't want to take pictures at the family gatherings.
4) She is 87 years old and I really want to spend more time with her. I thought it would push me to get together with her more often. My goal was once a month...I even have her scheduled into my palm pilot on repeat every month.
WELL...These photos were taken on Mother's Day. She has yet to see them. And she won't even see them here since she can't download Micro Media Flash at the "Village".
My poor Grandma is like the kid in the commercials that's stuck diving off the diving board but never gets to see it in print because it's stuck on the camera or in the computer.
I am putting this in print as the "blog of shame" to motivate me. The next time you see me feel free to nag me about getting these 2 and 100 other pictures to my Grandma (unless your name is "Marilyn",you are also in these pictures and you're still bugging me for vacation pix from last year).

The Paintball Mom

Ouch! That just about sums it up! If you love baking in the heat and getting pelted with bullets that leaves welts, this is your game! I always said that if I had to choose between sons and daughters I would pick sons. Well...I think the daughters would be a little less painful!! There were about 40 boys playing today so I was affectionately referred to as "Mom" by all of them...too fun :-)

The" Knitting Nanny" needs your help!

I am so proud of my Mom! She has started a new business ( as if 40 years of running her own business wasn't enough). She has recently retired and taken up knitting again!

In an effort to market some of her pieces, we are in desperate need of models. My poor niece and my Mom's neighbour were kind enough to model a few things but they can't take it anymore with the child labor laws what they are!!

Anyone that purchases a knitted piece from her in the month of July 2008 will receive a free children's session and the $90 package for free!! The only catch is that your child needs to be photographed with the knitted piece (and of course without also :-) sometime during the month of August.

Just call Marilyn @ 440-371-2500 to arrange for your custom designed hat, scarf, sweater, etc...

Thank you for your help!
