Spencer is so funny! I was watching him yesterday, while Erin was with Cooper on a preschool field trip. I was painting and Spencer was playing with a ball and bat. The ball went down the stairs. He looked at me and said, " Grandma you go get it, there are monsters "I said , "There are no monsters at Grandmas! " He said, " Grandma you a monster. I pouted and before I could say anything, he knew I was sad and He said," Grandma you a Princess!"

He is loving the pink rocker I painted!!! He's so CUTE!!!!

Not me! The people who give this furniture away are CRAZY! I guess someones junk is another persons treasure! I have been painting and painting! I love to see how each piece of furniture takes on new life!!! When I get them all done, I will show you! A couple of pieces are almost done and looking good!

Jay and I went on our first cruise. We are wondering why it took us so long to do this. Real life is GREAT but when you don't know what day it is, or what time it is - and you don't care, that is SWEET!!!!! Our biggest stress was deciding if for dinner we were going to have 1,2 or 3 appetizers, 1,2or 3 main entrees and the same with desert. Yes we gained weight!

The group! We are blessed with great friends! People have asked which port I liked best. Each was unique and beautiful, but it was the people who made it fun!

We laughed a lot!

From morning until night we laughed, until our stomachs ached!

Dinner every night at 6.00! We were once called the Seminary group, because we didn't drink coffee or alcohol!

Another picture at dinner because we ate all the time! Not to mention the soft yogurt everyday!

Shuffle board was just one of the many fun things to do on the ship! Playing a card game Quiddler that was introduced to us by Joan was the best game we played. Thanks Joan!

We swam in the beautiful warm ocean - you would think we were a bunch of youngsters, instead of middle aged couples!! We had a serious incident of someones lost sunglasses!

Ben & Jill, heading off to our off shore excursion of learning to sail the American Cup sailboat, and then race other sailboats! We worked hard and learned to work together! Some jobs were harder than others. I was the time keeper and the bar tender, Ha Ha, I handed out a lot of soda and water

Brent and Kris! Loving the beautiful warm weather while it snowed at home!

Joan, Scott, Kris & Brent welcoming us back to the ship

Jay, Craig & Miriam. Each day Jay relaxed a little more & he really liked the hats!

Jay started to think he belonged on the Caribbean Islands!

The ship behind us!

Loving life! Ohh till next time - please please let there be a next time! Oh, and Jay won a metal playing volleyball!
