It's not what you gather, but what you scatter, that tells what kind of a life you have lived.

Another day in the life.....

As a grandmother, with no job, life should be slow and soothing, even kind of boring. NOT! My life is anything but boring. My son is visiting right now and life has really been spiced up. He enjoys playing with the kids because he's really a big kid at heart. He gets them riled up and then they all get in trouble, including him! My daughter and her family will be here tomorrow and she has a little one that just learned how to walk. We will be going through the house tomorrow and putting up the breakables. And the plants! It's going to be so much fun, watching him learn to control those little legs and motate.
As I contemplate their visit, I think back to when my kids were little. I really enjoyed them when they were babies, with their darling chubbiness and their engaging smiles. They were so helpless and really needed me. Now they're all grown with children of their own, and I'm only needed when they want a babysitter. I guess that's the way life is supposed to be, but I think it's kind of sad.
Enough of that! On to more ABC pages. I think I might put a whole bunch of them in this post. Just post the photos and let you see what they look like. I am working on making PDF patterns, and I will post a link for those later. So, here goes.....

This is what you see when you turn to the F page.

This is what you see when you pull on the tabs!
There is plenty of room for more grandparents.

The top wings are on brads so they can move.

When I did these titles, my QuicKutz was in storage.

My kids favorite aunt and uncle, Debbie and Jim King.

I tell you, I had a ball making these books. Personalizing them was the best part. My family lives scattered about in Tennessee, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, California and Oregon, so the young ones don't know the whole family. This is one way to give them pictures that they will actually look at and enjoy, and as their moms "read" the book to them, they can tell them who each face belongs to, so they at least know what they look like, even if they don't know them.
More ABC pages next time. Keep your head up and your socks matched. Love ya, Gramma G.
