His Birthday

It was a full day celebrating John's Birthday earlier this week.
He took a day from work and bright and early we headed to Chick-Fil-A (with a coupon for a free breakfast) then to the train station for a trip into Philly.
John picked card no. 48 from our
City Walks Philadelphia, 50 Adventures on Foot,
and we set out for Historic Society Hill.

Waiting for baby

Jamie is due the end of February.
I was inspired by a crocheted baby blanket I saw on Pinterest
to make for our new granddaughter soon to join her five siblings.
(Here is the LINK to the Etsy shop where you can purchase the pattern made by Sheila for the beautiful baby blanket that inspired my project.  Sheila's blankets are much cuter!)

Chocolate Mousse by Grateful Prayer Thankful Heart

I picked up chocolate molds on after-Christmas clearance (75%-off) and knew they would make perfect serving cups for a special dessert.  They were a little tricky un-molding but nothing that the filling didn't hide.
Following the directions on the package, I made 10 dessert shells with about half a bag of Candy Melts.

Loving Hands

Keri's stay last week was short so she is spending a few more days here with us this week.  I have been thinking that something my mom made would be fitting her soon and I was right.
Keri was happy to twirl about and model as Pop-Pop snapped pics.
Whatever my mom put her hand to do, she did it with all of her might and ability.
Her many crochet projects are still enjoyed today by those she lovingly shared her gifts with.
