Here I sit...unsure of how to start or what to say.

Grandpa: He passed away early Saturday morning. It makes me sad to type makes me sad that he is gone...but after seeing how he was struggling on Friday night, I am grateful that he is no longer suffering.

Benefit: Verd's benefit went very well! It wasn't nearly as "hard" as I thought it was going to felt very much more a "celebration" of his life, rather than a time for mourning. I was already feeling emotional from my grandpa's death, but seeing the community rallying around my SIL's family put some happiness in my heart.

Mother's Day: Busy, fun, fattening! Brunch with everyone, then supper and no holds barred kickball, which ended up being more of a "mud ball" game after the day of rain we had! The sun came out just long enough for us (and by "us" I mean everyone minus me...I was feeling lazy) to get in a game and just long enough for the kids (and Grandpa) to get good and muddy!

Now, here I sit. Cozied into bed (having been excused from bedtime duty--'cuz it's Mother's Day, dontchaknow!)...blogging and playing Words With Friends!

I hope you all had terrific Mother's Days! G'night!

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)
