Preparing for Alivia Grace to appear

Hello Everyone,
     I know its been a while since I've posted. Well, you know life happens. I am working on a baby album for my new granddaughter Alivia Grace. My daughter, Amber Harmon and her husband, Bill are expecting their first child on June 10, 2014. I am so excited for this new addition to our family. Many of you know that I lost my father in June of 2013 so this June will be much better with a blessing from heaven. I am so happy I will have Alivia Grace here to help me with the first anniversary of my daddy's home going. I know he is in a better place but I miss him so much. I didn't expect it to be this hard without him. He and I were buddies. We sure laughed a lot and I treasure those memories with him. I was daddy's little girl right up to his last breathe.
     OK, I had to take a little break and wipe my eyes.  Its still very hard for me. I miss my daddy very much, but I know I will see him again some day up in heaven.  He is with my mother now and they are reunited for eternity. That makes me smile. I miss my mom so very much its been almost 12 years since she has been gone. She passed the year after Grandma Clara. My world was all up-side down. I had lost both of the most important mother figures in my life. My real mother and my grandmother who cared for me much of the time.  I am sad they will not be here to see my beautiful Alivia Grace, but I am sure that they will be looking down on her. 
   I will post some photos soon, I will post the baby album even though its not finished and I plan on putting photos in the stack the deck album with the Rose Wood paper so I will post it when I am finished. I just get so tired just getting up and getting my shower and getting dressed, if I have to go anywhere when I get home I am finished for the day.  I can't sit and do my albums like I used to b/c of my back pain, its too intense to sit for very long. It is not good when you are hurting and you just got out of bed :( Anyway, I will do my best. Thank you for being so patient with me. HUGS 
Thx, CardmakerMOM (aka Tracy)

Alivia Grace's First Valentine

Thursday, February 13, 2014

Dear Alivia
  Grandma loves you so much and I've not even seen you or touched your beautiful face. I have not even heard your sweet little voice or cry. I can't express the depth of love I have for you. I can not wait to hold and love you. You are so precious to me. I love to watch your mother and father coo and goo over you ha ha ha. They are already so in love with you. God has blessed our family so greatly with allowing us to care for you. I can't wait to take you to church with me so you can learn of my wonderful Lord and Savior. I can't wait to teach you the stories of the bible and songs like "Jesus Loves You!"  You are already Grandma's angel sent from above. My blessing from my Lord. I am so thankful for you. I can't wait to hug and kiss your little baby face, fingers and toes.
   I love you little one and want you to know how much you are loved and wanted!  You are a precious blessing sent to us from heaven above. I love you so much Alivia Grace Harmon. Grandma can't wait to hold you and shower you with love. Hugs and Kisses from your grandma
 Love Grandma

It's going to be a girl!

     I'm so excited, I'm going to be a grandmother. My daughter and her husband are expecting their first child. I am so looking forward to taking care of my grandbaby. I have been so lonely since my father passed away in June (2013) We found out my daughter was pregnant October 2, 2013. I can't wait until I get to hold our little bundle of joy. I know my mom and dad would be just "jumping with joy" to hear Amber is going to be a mommy. Now I know what my mother was feeling. (she was so excited with Aaron, she took rolls & rolls of film, she showed anyone who would look her beautiful grandson) ha ha ha Now I know why. She was just so proud of him (I am so proud of my Amber and can't wait to see our little girl) They like the name Olivia pronounced Alivia I think ? I don't know, its late and I'm tired ha ha. We had the gender reveal party tonight and I was so shocked b/c I thought she was having a boy ....guess that is what I get for thinking ha ha ha oh well it doesn't matter as long as its a healthy baby and my baby girl is safe and healthy. I guess that is it for right now. More later, Bye for now from Grandma (giggle giggle)

2014 Happy New Year

Happy New Year, I have not been doing a very good job at keeping up with my blog. First I am not a blogger but this has been a place for me to post my cards, then I have had some deaths in the family. I was able to post my feelings. This has been a big help. I just have not been myself since the passing of my father in June (2013) My dad had stage 4 lung cancer. Cancer has been life changing to our whole family. I have tried to us this blog to help others who maybe caring for a loved one who has cancer. It the first of the year and I have a new grand baby on the way. YAY! My daughter and son-in-law are expecting their first child in June of 2014~ I am so excited. I am making an album for the new grand baby and I want to get their engagement & wedding album done too. I really need to make an album for daddy too.
