What's a grandma to do when these two cuties ask for a picture? Take it, of course and show it off to the world.
I can't believe how big these guys are getting. I can hardly pick P up at all, and I have to be careful with C, to not hurt my back. They both still like to sit in my chair with me when I'm doing something interesting, so I do get my cuddles.
C has decided that all her Webkinz need to be dressed.
I am very pleased and proud to be able to tell you that I passed my Japanese Temari Association level 1 and level 2 certification.
This is a scan of the translation of the Level 1 application. It feels quite strange to see the Japanese characters, but cool at the same time. After you are accepted at level 2, it takes a couple of years of practice to get ready for level 3. For these two levels, you only had to send pictures to Japan, for the next 2 levels you have to send the actual temari. After I had turned in my applications, I was ready to not look at a temari for a while, but I'm enjoying working on them again, and can face the prospect of 3 to 5 years of practice with interest. I think I'm addicted.
