A few last pictures from 2018

It is hard to believe this is New Years Eve! Everyone says it, the older you get the faster times flies by. I am old enough now to know that is true.

A few more photos from the holidays...

Charles, Audrey and Nancy....little baby boy is starting to make his presence known as well.  Nancy said that Audrey was playing with a little girl and was telling her that she was going to be a big sister and she was getting a brother. So I guess the disappointment at not having a sister is wearing off.

The Hoover Grimms with Grimmwood in the background.

Baylor got this neat chair for Christmas. I think I would like one too but not sure I could get out of it unless jet propelled.

More Christmas Elves!

And finally...

My Thirtyone bag packed for a day of stitching at the Decatur Public Library.  There were six of us in attendance. I always enjoy seeing everyone's stitching and their plans for the new year. All of us are going to the January Retreat so we were busy discussing how fun it will be for us stitchaholics.

When I got home I found a pretty New Years Card in my mail box from blog friend, Robin in Virginia. It is on my kitchen hutch and is perfect as it had a lovey snowman on the front. I decorate with snow men for January. February is Valentines Day and this year I will have to decorate for March as Easter is not until April 21st this year.  I see some shamrocks in my future.

Shamrocks in March... of course!! Love the photos of your dear family. The kids are all adorable!! I know you will have great fun at your retreat!! Do tell us all about it! And yes, I am old enough to know that time goes faster each year, too. Sigh.

Enjoyed the pictures; those elves are adorable! Interesting chair that Baylor received; I think I would need someone to pull me out. It sounded like you had a good time at the stitch in at the library. Enjoy this last day of 2018!

Such fun family photos, Arlene! I'm glad Miss Audrey seems to be adjusting to having a baby brother on the way :) So glad you are planning a January retreat with your fellow library stitchers--sounds like a lot of fun! Happy last few hours of 2018 (and yes, these years DO fly by the older we get!!).

The holidays go by so quickly. Having sweet pictures to remember them by are priceless!

God bless you in the new year, Arlene!

Arlene Grimm said...

Yes Linda, those are some of my stitched ornaments on the Hoover tree. I am glad they enjoy them. Gina, Baby Boy is due in June.

Lovely photos, Arlene! Nancy is looking wonderful! I'm praying for them as well as all of your other kids/grandkids. Baylor looks as if he is nearly as tall as Margaret in the family photo!

And those elves ... they look as if they are up to something!
