Happy Birthday!

Hi Friends!

*Just a reminder before this Friday, August 10th, please leave a comment
for my blog candy!  Good luck!*

I just wanted to share a simple birthday card I made for my nephew, Curtis.
Here is a photo of Curtis and me at his first year birthday party last year.

 He's a little sweetheart!  And, he is a big boy!  I would not be able to
carry him around for very long.  He lives about two hours away, so
we don't see him very often.  They grow up so fast.  I miss him, the
little darling!

Speaking of children, I'm an aunt again!  My sister just told me today
that she is a Grandma once again.  She has four grandchildren now.
Her son Tim and daughter-in-law, Lydia, welcomed a little girl into the
world today.  What a blessing!  I'm going to have to get my back into
shape to carry and hold these little ones...hehehe! 

Well, I think I'll go and watch some olympics before going to bed.
Aren't they exciting?!  I love watching all the sports for the olympics.
I can't really say I have a favorite one to watch.  Do you have a
favorite one?  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I appreciate
all your support and sweet comments!  Take care, hugs!!!
