There are people in your life who change you, they help you to be a better person. One of those people was my Nonnie. As most of you know, she passed away this fall and there is still a little hole in my heart. I've been sorting through photos and reminiscing about the things we did as kids, young adults, and even as older adults. My Nonnie was a special lady, and I am lucky to have had almost 40 years with her. I absolutely adore this picture of my sister and I with her. Although I tease my sister that she looks like she is playing favorites here! ; ) I used my Cricut to cut all of the hearts on the background paper. Some hearts were backed with patterned paper and some were left open. The entire background was placed on dimensional foam circles for dimension. I added the title, "Love U More...." and added a bit of lace and twine.
Cortney and I went to see "The Sound of Music this past weekend." It was the very first play she had ever seen. I was a nervous wreck! I was so worried she would start "talking" or singing during the play and people around us wouldn't understand, or get annoyed. But instead, my girl was silent during the entire 3 hour production.....silent as can be. She stared intently at the stage and broke out into the biggest smile you ever wanted to see, every time they sang on stage. By the end of the performance, I had relaxed, and seriously wanted to cry with happiness. Cort had seen a play........with me....her mom. A "normal" mother/daughter thing to do. It doesn't get any better...........
Oh.....and did I mention her best friend Patty loves her too? ; ) And Ava and Francie?
I just thought this photo was kind of funny......because she was seeing "The Sound of Music." Get it? She is covering her ears? I know......I am a total dork! ; )
I will apologize in advance because there will probably be more Cortney pictures next week. She has her "big" basketball game this weekend. She just got her new cheer leading uniform which is blue this year! She cheers with the other cheerleaders from the local high school and it is a pretty big event! So I am excited to see her shake her pom poms and look adorable in her cheer leading uniform. So I hope you don't mind indulging me a bit! : )
Have a great weekend! Thank you so much for checking in today!
