Back to the Real World

We had a wonderful vacation, and things have been busy since we returned, but I've spent hours trying to figure out things on my new lap top. Getting my pictures to Photoshop, editing, then trying to find them again in order to load them to the blog -- has been an ordeal. I'm still not sure what I've done to be able to load these pictures!

Mila's recital: What an affair that was! Adorable kids in adorable costumes -- all over the place.

Mila kept pulling out her feathers...
Della gets a hug while Eric looks on.The compliments afterwards.
Max had a great time with just about anything.
Now that I've managed to get these up, I guess I'll try to work on some of the Florida pictures. Before I ... uh, forget what I've done.


  1. A wonderful vacation, and a new laptop (frustrating at times, but still fun to play) and an adorable dance recital. Sounds like it has been a good summer so far. Mila and Max are precious.

  2. the grand babies are just too cute!! welcome back from vacation!

  3. Welcome home. Both the grandkids are too cute for words, but Mila in that dress is just drop-dead adorable.

  4. Oh those kids are so darn CUTE!

  5. especially love the first image of Mila - her happy girl over-the-shoulder smile.

  6. Candace - I do love the new lap top and am trying to adjust to differences. Yes, a great summer so far - fingers crossed. :)

    Karoda - Thanks! It is always good to come home.

    Rian - :) I don't think I'll ever outgrow recitals, sequins, and feathers!

    Deb - Well, I have to admit that I'm crazy about them.

    ACey - Oh, she was quite the Diva that night. We got several encores at dinner!

  7. Hello! I joined JUST US QUILTERS List
    and am trying to visit them all! Your blog is wonderful. I love all your artsy work and your other blogs.

  8. Moorea - Thanks for the kind words and for stopping by for a visit!

  9. welcome back!! sounds like a wonderful vacation.

    good luck getting used to the new computer!

    changing photo editing programs can be quite distressing at first. I still can't figure out how to rotate my pictures 1 degree at a time with the photo editing software on the computer I got in january!

    adorable children!

  10. kimy - Thanks! It takes so much time for me to make changes and to re-learn anything, but I'm working on it!

  11. Such cute kids. I guess you didn't get a Mac IBook - the IPhoto program is so easy to use.

  12. Gerrie - Nope. Definitely a PC. I don't think the problem is just the PC, however, I just haven't been able to figure it out. Someone else could probably help me simplify, but I'm too easily frustrated. :(


Good to hear from you!
