Christmas Flower Review

A few flowers from this year's Christmas holiday.  
These went to V and to Tami.
This little birdy went to work with me.   
The rose is drying now and it still looks pretty. 
And a little bud vase for the kitchen.  
It's almost the new year.  
Time to start thinking about flowers for 2013 :)

I'll Be Careful

He's so funny!  He knew that I was going to caution him about jumping off the porch, so he was heading me off before I even got started.  "I'll be careful."
I'm so thankful for Betsy & Kyle.  I can't wait to hold them tight again.  So sad for all those grandparents who lost their beautiful babies in a Friday morning kindergarten class.  Sending them love and strength for healing.

Betsy in her Great-Great-Granddaddy's Hat

This hat belonged to my granddaddy, Raymond White, also known as Great-Grandma Peggy's dad.
We'll have to ask my mom to tell us where this was taken.  That looks like a fancy bench he's sitting on.  He played the guitar, although I don't remember hearing him play.  Maybe because TV had come along by then, and he loved TV.  I do remember watching Andy Griffith with him and counting the change from the filling station every night. 

 Mike has the guitar now and I know he treasures it.  Granddaddy's hat has been hanging on my walls for years--since way before my boys were born.  But Betsy was the first one who said she wanted to wear it.  She looks so cute in it!  Wish he were here to see her.
