Helping out

Wednesday night I picked up Tonya from college and we had dinner at the Winslow elementary school. The school was putting on a benefit spaghetti supper to help a
2nd grader that was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. He and his family were told on New Years Day that he had 2-6 months to live. I have to tell you, walking up to that school and seeing the line of people waiting to get in - just made me tear up.
They served over 1000 people and had many raffles and donations - they raised a total
of 5300.00 in two short hours!!
I am very proud to say, my sister Patti was very very generous. She donated 3 baskets along with a homemade quilt and candle accessories for the raffles. For Caleb (the 2nd grader) she gave him a very soft teddy bear and will be making him a
Jodi-Lynn quilt. A quilt she makes for cancer patients, so it becomes their security blanket and the doctors and nurses can sign it and write special messages to the patient.
Caleb is in my prayers and hope he gets the treatment he needs to get better.

Looks like I posted the same page twice, but hit 2nd page and you will see a vintage
style layout of Cindi and Tyler!

Grandmothers Pride

I took these pictures of Cindi and Tyler last year at the park in Unity. Tyler loved
the swings and playing on the monster slide. Cindi took him to the waters edge and
they watched the boats go by and watched people as they fished. It was a perfect day.
I know we will be going back again this year.

I found this awesome website that allows you to scrapbook on line without downloading anything to your computer. So I played with a picture of my son and his
girlfriend Tonya. They both got a deer the same weekend with their bows and were
pretty proud of themselves.

Yesterday, Mike and I met Scott and Rylee at Hermon Mountain. We had a hard time finding them, there were so many people there!! Afterwards we went to the Sports Arena in Bangor and bowled and then played in the arcade. Rylee really liked the air hockey table. Scott and Rylee came back to my house for dinner. Afterwards Rylee and I started a scrapbook and she
played with my "cricut" machine. She plans on coming back to make valentine cards with me next weekend. I am looking forward to it!
