Grandpa Holiday says when his first grandchild, Lyndsay was born he called her his GB. When we moved to AZ in 2002 I decided we needed a personalized plate. Few people can figure out what it means. We have had people follow us into a parking lot, just to ask us what our plate stands for. We do love our grandbabies, so we want to advertise (or brag)!

We have a beautiful new granddaughter! Gracie Renee was born on Tuesday, October 7th at 4:14 am, 7 lbs 1 oz, 20 1/2 " long. Gracie is the daughter of my son, David and his wife, Julia. We are so happy to welcome her into our family. I drove to Albuquerque today to see her and take lots of pictures.

Who, me?

Thanks Abby for the Award! I do enjoy making those baby blankies and burp cloths. I love having wee ones in my arms all wrapped up and snuggly.

I shall have to pass it on to the Dadhood. His creativity, mostly through words, keeps us all in stitches (most of the time).

Pumpkin Farm

Yesterday, we went to the pumpkin farm, just north of Sacramento, CA. They have built cute little storefronts
to look like a town, hayrides, a train, petting zoo, little shops, and lots of fields of pumpkins of all sizes.

Asher had lots of fun feeding and petting the goats,

going on the slide,

making funny faces,

and climbing pumpkins.

Frogs and Fireflies

This is my first pieced quilt. I bought the fabric at least a year ago. Just finally finished it before this trip. My daughter Brandy bought me an airline ticket so I could go see my grandson, Asher, and spend time with her family. I think he loves his new blanket. It was fun to make and I am happy with how it turned out.
We have been having a great time, and I can't believe his vocabulary. Yackety Yack, all the time.

7 Random Things Meme

1. I married my husband in the Albuquerque Temple
5 days after we met. Yep, I said 5 days.

2. I could watch the same movie (one of my favorites) once a week for the rest of my life. Silly, I know, but I could and would if I had time.

3. I hate to throw food away. I like everyone to eat all the food on their plates. I'm not sure why, probably due to having to do without, and I despise waste, especially since someone had to work so hard to buy it. I'm glad we live in the mountains, now I put all the leftovers out for the skunks, and they finish it all up.

4. I can sit at the computer and do family history research for hours upon hours, searching censuses and other records. Don't plan on anything getting done in the house, which I never used to let go. I have to tear myself away or get everything done before I sit down to work.

5. I can only eat fresh mushrooms, preferably sliced and lightly cooked in butter. I cannot stand cream of mushroom soup, or pre-cooked mushrooms. They taste like I am chewing on a rubber band...yuck.

6. On the other hand, I actually used to like and eat liver and onions before I met my vegetarian husband.

7. I earned an all expense paid trip to Oahu, Hawaii in 1990 by winning a nationwide data entry contest offered by the company I was working for at the time. Eight days and seven nights totally paid for and a gift of $1,000.00 to boot for spending money.

All who may read this please add the meme to your blog and let me know so I can get to know you better!
