A couple of updates... and something creative

Hello there... well it's been quite a busy week (and a bit) and my wee Grandbaby is doing so well.  Mikayla has taken to motherhood like a duck to water and she sends me daily photos of what Miss Chloe is up to!  I've even had videos and we've talked on Skype... modern technology is really helping this Nana feel close to her Invercargill girls that's for sure.

How precious is this little girl???

She looks so much like Mikayla did as a baby... and those little lips and nose... super cute!  I know I'm biased but this little girl just melts my heart xx

Now up to the other end of the country and a quick update about my Dad.  Unfortunately things are not running quite so smoothly up in Whangarei.  Dad is still in hospital... and still on oxygen... and unfortunately he is having a LOT of memory problems.

Dad has no idea that Krystal and I went to see him in the hospital which is a real shame.  A friend of mine went to visit him early this week and by Thursday he had absolutely no memory of it.  It could be down to the skull fracture... but at this stage we just don't know.  I'll let you know more when I know more.

And now for something creative.  One of the boys in my class turned 8 last week and his family took him on a trip to the snow... so I decided to make him a 'snow card' and here's what I came up with:

I took step by step photos as I went so I might just put together a little tutorial for this one.

Thanks so much for stopping by xx


  1. You know that adorable Chloe just outshines everything, don't you?! She really is the most precious little beauty! But I also love your fun snow card! I'm very sorry about what's happening with your Dad, Shell. Hugs, Darnell

  2. Oh Shell what a beautiful baby - of course you are allowed to be biased - I am when it comes to my grandies :-).
    So sorry to hear of your Dad's lack of progress - I do hope there is some improvement for all of you.
    Love your card - that is really cute. What a wonderful teacher you must be to give birthday cards!!


Hi :) I really love hearing from you so please leave me a comment... I really appreciate it!
Thanks, Shell xx
