It'll be interesting to look back at it years from now.

Easter Cards for the Little Grandkids

Cards for my littlest grandchildren, living in Guam.
The paper has cute little eggs printed on it, but I couldn't resist
covering them with these pretty puffy eggs that I found in Walmart.
Wish you could see the sparkly background paper and glittery words!

Oops! Just noticed I forgot to cover one of the eggs - will go back and do that!

Easter Through the Years

Each year we've celebrated Easter for the grandchildren with a party at my house 
and a big egg hunt at the other grandparents' house.

This layout is one of many I'm doing this month as part of Calvinball, a fun
activity/challenge sponsored by Get It Scrapped.

This Alaskan Life

Bears are a way of life here in Kodiak, and we generally admire and respect them,
but when they charge at your grandson, that's something else again! On this day, 
Kavin had to shoot a bear that charged him and his uncle. I really can't believe he 
was able to maintain his composure enough to do it. 

[I'm sure there are those of you who feel that it is wrong to kill an animal, and I respect that. 
I felt the same way before I moved to Alaska. Hunting and fishing are a way of life here,
and everything is very well controlled, with lots of rules, seasons, and limits.
As for bears, there are controlled "trophy hunts," which many of us are opposed to,
and usually involve people from far away with lots of money to spend. Other than that,
you can only kill a bear "in defense of life or property" and then you must report it 
and turn it over to the state. This is so people don't trophy hunt and then say it was self-defense.]

This grandson plays sports all year - he tried basketball for the first time last fall.

That great background paper is from Fancy Pants.
Wish I knew who made that title - don't see it online anywhere.
