My Mimi, the Fashion Plate

I’d be willing to bet that I am the only girl who got to take her grandmother to get her ears double-pierced today.

Gorgeous, isn’t she?  She was very brave and didn’t even flinch.  (although she did emit a little squeak or two!  heehee)

Wow, what a difference! It is nice to see Mimi sparkling again in the second picture. Nope, not by the “diamonds” but by the smile! Lookin’ beautiful, Marlene! (and of course, I am a big fan of those “second holes”!) Granbob (Barbara) (Mom)

Oh, it’s never too late for ladies to get those second holes in the earlobes.

It enhances them, and the fact that more older ladies are now having it done enhances the practice.

The Kids.

I just wasn’t prepared for how much I would love them…I underestimated how much they would love each other.


P.S.  Parker, what’s up with the underbite, my friend?

Looks like he’s channeling Michael Phelps. Maybe he misses the Olympics already.

They are both adorable. I’m also surprised by how much Dario loves Matteo. Not that he’s not lovable, of course, but he just adores him and gives him the biggest smiles and laughs. So sweet, to make up for the craziness I guess!

The Most Super Model

Once upon a time, I was searching the internet to find bows for Bailey.  She was only a few months old at the time, and I wanted to find something very small but with good clip-ability.  :)  I somehow stumbled upon an etsy store for Very Sweet Bows and saw exactly what I was looking for. I ordered several of her little bows and they were perfect! I sent the owner, Fagan, a little note telling her how much I loved Bailey’s new bows and attached a picture of Bailey wearing one. Fagan wrote back and asked for permission to use Bailey’s picture on her web site. Of course, I didn’t mind a bit (who would say no to showing off such cuteness?) and was delighted to see my baby girl’s sweet mug on her site the very next day.

Since then, Fagan has sent me several new bows and products from her store so that I can take some pictures of Bailey wearing them. It is a pretty sweet deal. Free, adorable bows and such for us, and Fagan gets to show off her products on the cutest baby girl in the universe! Check out www.verysweetbows.com to see Bailey in action!

I dreamed of having both a Grandson that I WORSHIP and a Grandaughter that I ADORE, but never, ever realized it could be this good. How BLESSED and LUCKY I am!
