And Now We Know...

Yes new grandchild is a granddaughter.
My daughter had her second sonogram this week
and it has been determined...It's A Girl!

But did I already know??? Is it possible that a dream I had before Holly found she was expecting, really was letting us know the baby would be a girl???

Just about a week after returning home from our vacation in June, I had a dream that I had Dylan and a little blond haired girl (named Jenna) floating on a boogie board in water that was only waist deep, but the water was so dark that I couldn't see the bottom.
The children fell off the boogie board and I panic because I can't see them but am able to grab both of them and have them in my arms, huggin' the stuffin' out of them when I wake up.
My immediate thoughts after waking from this dream were...I never would have had those 2 children in water like that without swimmies to have them float and I knew the little girl was my granddaughter. I just didn't know who her mother was...Holly or Meagan. I told both my girls about the dream and two weeks later over dinner, Holly announces, "I know who Jenna is."

So what do you think...was the dream telling us that this new grandbaby would be a girl?

I am so looking forward to shopping for smocked dresses and hair bows.

A Baltimore Wedding

Friday evening, Lou and I had the pleasure to attend the wedding of the daughter of our neighbors of 30+ years. We watched this adorable little girl grow into a beautiful, accomplished woman. The wedding was held at the
Baltimore Museum of Industry in downtown Baltimore overlooking the famous
Domino Sugars sign and the Baltimore Harbor.

During the day on Friday, thunderstorms rolled through the area most of the day.
But the skies cleared in the late afternoon
and it was a beautiful evening, windy but beautiful.

Julie and her Dad...

The reception was held inside the museum...a glimpse of Baltimore history.

The new Mr. and Mrs.

And the Wedding Cake...cleverly disguised as a bushel of Steamed Crabs.

Wishing Julie and Jeff many happy years together!

The Not So Itsy Bitsy Spider...

Every morning the porch pets, as we are now calling the spiders who have taken over our porch, leave us a beautiful works of art.

The Itsy Bitsy Spider went up the water spout...

An age old nursery rhyme on an 8 inch x 24 inch custom sign with a glittery spider web on a worn sage background with white lettering.

I sang this with my daughters and now with my grandson.

Colorfest in Thurmont, MD 2011

New spot for us this year at the Colorfest in Thurmont on a beautiful October weekend. We set up in the front yard of Mountain Memories, a small craft shop, which is located directly across the street from "The Cozy" the oldest family owned restaurant in the state of Maryland.
It also houses the Camp David Museum.

Lou and I set up on Friday afternoon and as we are pulling the pieces out of the trailer that all hook together to make up our display, we find a table is missing. We had used it several weeks ago when we had the family here for steamed crabs and it never made it back into the trailer. I freaked, as I usually do when something doesn't go as planned, but my Mr Fix It was able to put together an end for the display where the table should be, which ended up working out so well that I think I would like him to build something similar to be used permanently in the display.

A shot of the Halloween table...although we sell
Witch, Zombie and Vampire items all year long.

A new addition for this show was a credit card reader for an i-phone. You plug the jak (from ProPay) into an i-phone and a credit card can be swiped. You get an approval or not for the card. The customer signs the phone with her finger tip and can have an email receipt sent to her if she would like. We had to purchase the i-phone last week...and we really didn't need a new phone with all the bells and whistles. But we've been tempting fate all these years at outside shows with taking cc and not knowing if they were good until we ran them when we got home.

This little gadget saved us $84.00 when a mutiple item purchase wasn't approved.

Am off to read your blogs...have been so busy getting read y for the show that I'm way behind reading and commenting
