my mom & dad

I am thinking so much about my parents!
Steven & I will go visit them for a week, starting tomorrow . . . and my dad is finally well enough to be out of the hospital. I feel very blessed about all this, and wanted to upload and share these photos.

Here is my Dad with my oldest son Decklin when he was just 2 --now 26! My dad has a John Deere Tractor and could not help but get a toy one for Decklin for his 2nd birthday!!

The photo below left, shows my dad's father (Gander), my beautiful mother, and my dad. I am not sure of the date. I would guess late 50's or early 60's.

Below right, My mom & dad in our Glastonbury, CT home in the 1970's.

My mom and dad at the Holly Ball, 1953!
Here is my mom, me, my dad and his mother ('Nonie') in 1972. I am 15 years old, the same age I was when I met Steven (my husband) for the first time! I used this photo for the "about Lenna" page on my new website that I am working on slowly, but surely. It's called: A Little Creative Space and I'm devoting it to free tutorials and on-line/email learning. I hope you have a minute to visit and let me know what you think! I will have more info added to the new site before too long . . .

I have created 10 color-combo ATCs for the Colour Groupies group, and sent them off yesterday. They're not uploaded here yet because we keep what they look like a surprise until they are all received! I can't share them quite yet . . . so until then, thanks for reading and take care until I return.

Yours Creatively, Lenna
