This is my Mama & Daddy on the far right with her 2 brothers and their wives.  Good looking family, huh?
Many of you know that my Mama went through a TERRIBLE ordeal last year re-breaking her hip she had previously had replaced.  It was an awful time for all of us - very touch and go there for a while.  I wondered if she would ever walk again.  But she came through it!!

And many of you know my Daddy was really sick this year.  It's one of the reasons we moved back from Alaska after only being there for such a short time.  We just felt like we needed to be here closer to them.  He had triple bypass surgery several weeks ago and is once again thriving and back to his ol' crazy, fun self.

God is good!

Mama and Daddy love to craft.  Mama likes to scrapbook and make cards.  Daddy likes projects and wood working crafts.  They have gone with me on my Cricut journey and endured all my excitement this little machine gives me.  They have followed my blog and YouTube videos.  
Guess what?  Somebody else has the Cricut bug now!  LOL  Yep, Joann's has them on sale and they are itching to buy one.  Daddy started a blog for them, so hopefully they will be posting projects they make.  And he is now a "follower" of Mary's Cardz TV blog.  :)  I'm so excited for them!!!

So, all my bloggy friends, go check out his one little post on his brand new blog.  CLICK HERE TO VISIT MAMA AND DADDY'S BLOG.  Become a follower of it, and watch and see their Cricut crafting journey from the very beginning.  This is going to be a wild, fun ride folks!!

And make sure you tell them that their baby daughter, Janis, sent you over.  :)
