Macey, Bears, Halloween and things that go bump!

Our sweetest princess on the planet, Macey, is 6 months old already!! Can you believe it?!! She certainly keeps this Nana busy as she crawls, pulls herself up to furniture and is already sidestepping to get to what she wants. At the rate she's going, it's entirely possible that she'll be walking before Christmas. We all know how quickly a walk turns into a full on run. Yikes!!
Okay, so it's been a month since my last post. Besides the sweetest princess on the planet keeping me busy I have actually been working on bears. Don't fall out of your chair now! I know it's been forever and a few days since I've produced anything new. A little whimsy and a bit of traditional. There will be more coming as soon as I can sit longer than 20 minutes at at time. More on that in a minute.
Another fun thing that's kept me busy was planning a Halloween Party. We've never hosted/had one before. Oh, my, goodness.....what FUN!!! It was so much fun we're going to do it again next year!!!

That kind of catches you up to today....and the "more on that in a minute, and the things that go bump part of this post. I fell down stairs on Tuesday. Yup. Boom, bump, crash. Cracked my tail bone and bruised a few ribs but I'm on the mend. The lesson I learned: Always have a free hand to use the hand rail. Dummy me had her hands full, slipped and wheeeeeeee, down I went. There was also a SPLAT. Almost an entire cup of coffee all over the carpet, walls, hardwood. Ouch and oh, the mess!

Many people have told me it takes weeks if not a couple of months to recover from a tailbone injury. BAH! I don't have time for that. I'm already going stir crazy. There are only so many magazines to go through and television is BORING. I need to get back to work!!! Like my granddaughter, I'm a girl on the go!!

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

On no Aleta! Sorry for what happened, I know, I fell downs stairs 3 times now... I never have a free hand... I'd always need one more to carry things up and down...;)
Hope you recover completely soon. As for now huge
P.S love your bears and your sweet bundle of joy!

Your little granddaughter is adorable! And you are so right - it won't be long and she will be walking and climbing and into everything she wants to see. I'm so sorry you fell and are injured. Please take care of yourself. I had a pretty hard fall on my knee and I'm pretty bruised and hobbling a bit. I did a really dumb thing - tried to hurdle over the puppy gate I put up in my hallway so my puppy wouldn't bother my brother-in-law while he was doing some work in my kitchen! The puppy escaped and I was left in a heap on the floor. What did I learn? I won't do that anymore! And I'm not as young as I used to be! Take care of yourself and get better.

I hurt my tailbone sled riding a while back. OUch!
I know it was really painful to sit for a few days (and I like to sit!) but I don't remember it taking months to get better. Hope you heal up fast!

Also the first picture put an instant smile on my face. :)
