My granddaughter, Riley Beth, had her first sleepover visit with her daddy last night. She had a great time. It was hard for me, though I can't put into words why. I guess this grandma is having a hard time growing up.

I know all the Disney designs are copyrighted, but what about the Wizard of Oz characters? I just landed on another site with blatant copyright designs, not even changing the names. So aggravating when you try to avoid all of these sites and find one an

I would like to show you my two special blessings this year. These are two photos of my mother and my granddaughter. My mom is 85, and is cancer survivor of two years now. I am so thankful for her. And my granddaughter Riley is developing a special l
The festivities and preparations for them have begun all over the world. I hope all of you have a blessed Christmas and happy new year. This year has been full of trials and victories and losses, as every year is. But we endured and are stronger and wi
