Just Some Fun Photos

I just thought I would share some fun photos I took over the weekend. I finally finished this little sweater and hat set for sweet little Ava Claire! I was so fun to do and really very easy.

Our little man Tyler is growing so fast. What a sweetheart he is. His hair is changing too - it's becoming much more coarse - not so fine - and it lays down now!
It wasn't long ago when it stuck up all over the place like this:
Now it is doing this: Here is Jess holding both her little neice and her little nephew.
And I'm teaching Jess how to knit, so she's working on a little pumpkin hat for Tyler. I told her it's important to hold her mouth just right as she knits!
Here's some pictures of the beautiful Miss Ava Claire. I'm telling you she is just the sweetest little girl.

More pictures of the little man.

Chuck and I have decided that these babies are really our babies - their parents are really just the nannies. That works for me!

I can't believe how much Tyler has grown! He looks like he has some great personality:) You'll have to show us pics of Ava Claire in her sweater and hat. I love little girls in pink, but oh they're so cute in blue!

Hi Robin,

I was unable to find an email address for you, so I hope it's okay to contact you through your blog.

I am a new Tyndale House author. My writing journey has been one of perseverance and trust. I always dreamed of being a published author, and in 1995 decided to set off on this path. Yes, it took me 12 years to get my first publishing contract. God is so good. His hand is all over this new episode of my life. However, I'm discovering that as an unknown debut author I'm fighting an uphill battle to market my books.

I'm writing to ask you if you might be interested in reading one or both of my books and consider spreading the word (if you enjoy them, of course) in your sphere of influence. I would be happy to send you one or both books.

My debut novel, Searching for Spice, is about a long-married woman who dreams of having an affair—with her husband. In he sequel, Out of Her Hands, my character Linda learns how to deal with unpleasant choices made by adult children, she helps her father-in-law mourn the loss of his wife, and has to contend with the fact that her best friend is moving across the country.

I’ve always believed that fiction is a powerful tool to bring truth to light. The reader feedback I’ve received is proof of that. One Searching for Spice reader said, "Your book reminded me how important it is to keep God in your relationship and to know that He is there always!" Another said “I closed this book with far greater respect and admiration for my own husband." After reading Out of Her Hands, an Amazon reviewer said: “This is a great read for a quiet afternoon or in those times when you feel your own life spinning out of control and need the reality check of knowing you're not in it alone.”

Feel free to visit my website for more information on my books:

If you’re interested, I would be happy to send you both novels. Of course, I understand that you may be pressed for time with your busy schedule. And in that event, I simply wish you the very best of God's blessings in your life.

You can email me at megan dimaria at gmail (dot) com.

A prisoner of hope,
Megan DiMaria

What beautiful little babies and what beautiful things you create with your hands. Are you sure that you can't move to Illinois and be my next door neighbor? I promise if you do, that we will become the best of crafting friends :)!

Your babies are SO adorable! I know you're having the best time..that Tyler has changed so much and grown and maybe the hair makes him look different too!
I think you have a new look on your blog, very nice! Or have I been gone too long? I'm trying to catch up.

You are so talented!!! And you have such beautiful grandbabies. Heartwarming photos. Can I join the family?

Have I told you how sweet you are? (among your other wonderful qualities?)

Hi Robin,

Your grandbabies are so beautiful! I loved these pictures. So precious, and clearly they are so very loved. :)


Michelle said...

My goodness look how much Tyler has changed! Your grandbabies are adorable!

Hi Robin. I wanted to let you know that I am back for now, blogging.

Also, those are some sweet, sweet grandbabies. I can see how you would be absolutely head over heels for them. Grandma or not they are loveable.

And I love that sweater set. I am just now TODAY knitting my first hat for a baby. I have never done anything but dish cloths and afghans and scarves. So I am working on a sweet hat for a newborn and hoping it will be great. I can't wait to try a sweater. Maybe next. It looks hard.

Good to "talk" to you again.

Have a great weekend.
