Getting Started!

A New Blog for PollythePatchworker

I'm finally taking the step of switching my blog from Xanga over to Blogger.   Hope you all are patient while this ole gal tries to take on the learning curve.

The first five weeks of summer I took a wonderful western trip with my mother and all six of my sisters.  Our husbands came and went as work permitted.

The next big event of the summer was a week visit of our son-in-law Ethan and granddaughter Dorie from Malaysia.    Ethan came in for his brother's wedding while Queena and James stayed back in Malaysia.    Our time was way to short with them.   I'll try and post a few picture of our time with them and maybe a few more later when I feel I know what I'm doing with this Blogger!

This picture was taken at Ground Zero this past Saturday when we were taking Dorie and Ethan back to JFK for their flight home.

Jeremy and Cheryl came over for the weekend.   Max and Dorie were two peas in a pod.  They played together so good.    

The family came in for Sunday dinner.

Mint Tea
Lettuce Salad
Pretzel Strawberry Salad

Everyone wants to hold sweet little Ariel.    
Ariel was just diagnosed with SMA, Spinal Muscular Atrophy.   We covet your prayers for our granddaughter and family as we travel on this journey.   Ariel needs a miracle from God.
We ask you to join us in bringing her to the throne of God.

What a precious gift of hold and love this bundle of sweetness.
We all wanted our turn.

Alicia getting to know her niece.

We are so grateful for mom's influence and blessing on our children and grandchildren.   

Here mom is taking the time to read "The Piggy in the Puddle" to Dorie right before we left for NY taking Ethan and Dorie back to the airport.    Our time with them was way to short!

I'll post more pictures a little later.
