Grandma's Lil' Helper

As we brought down the Christmas things from the attic we had a helper. Last year at this time this little one lay quietly and watched all the activities. As you can see he has decided the attic stairs looks very inviting. In his hand he has a little bird his Papa handed him and he sure didn't want to give it up.

He is always busy trying new things. One of his favorite things is standing on his car.

I guess he will probably grow up to be a stunt driver...Look NO HANDS!

Thought I would share a hand~hooked rug I've been working on. I hope to have it done soon and plan to keep it for myself. I'm not good at decorating so not sure where I'll put it.

As another day has come to a close we had a beautiful sunset here on our farm and we feel very blessed that a dear friend of ours has made it through a difficult surgery today and know that though she has a recovery ahead of her, the faith in God she has is always an inspiration to all who know her.

Happy Trails...Ginger

Cute photo of your grandson - especially of him standing on his car. If not a stunt driver - maybe he'll be a tightrope walker? LOL! Beautiful sunset at the end of your post!
have a great day!

What a little angel! I love his expression in that 2nd photo.

Your rug is so pretty! I'm glad you're going to keep it. It would be a shame to let all your pretty things go.

Love the sunset! No one decorates quite like the Creator.
