Smiles Speak Words

Seeing the great-granddaughter’s smile while at her new table and chair set made building it rather than buying one worth the work.

Years ago we made the great-grandson a set, and we were told this little sweetie loves using his. It was time for us to make her a set of her own.

Having to build outside means we’re at the mercy of a short hectic season, and days with good weather to boot. We feel bad, but for these reasons the great-granddaughter is older than the great-grandson was when he got his set. 

We decided to make the sets different. Her’s is obviously taller because of her age. So, it was more practical to make the chairs a ladder back style for sturdiness. Plus, for her patiently waiting extra years, her table has a special flip up top for books or crafting supply storage.

Her set was also given unfinished. Being a girl her age, we felt she might have fun helping decide what colour it should be. Maybe even help with the process.

The great-grandson’s set was more a modern style and I finished it with black legs and clear table and chair tops.

Branching Out

The family tree has a new branch.

Early Wednesday, October 12, another Great Grandchild entered our world. A 8lb,15oz baby girl. We’re thankful both mother and child are healthy and well.

Even though she is the youngest Granddaughter’s first baby, this sweet little one already has a big/little brother waiting at home for her.

She’s a lucky girl, and her life is off to a great start by having a loving Mother, Father and Brother, not to mention the extended family all excited for their future together.

Congratulations to the proud parents.
