I made the kids in Florida new sweaters for Christmas and made them large enough this year, I hoped.  Well then I left Florida before Christmas and so had to just take their word for it that they fit. This week end they are at LegoLand and it is cold in Florida so they took their sweaters.  Becca sent me a picture of them wearing their sweaters and I loved the pictures so much I wanted to show all of you but—- I am not very computer savvy and thought I would have to wait until Joe got here tonight but I decided to explore my new phone and see if there was a way to get the pictures in the messages into the email on my lap top.  If I could then I can pull the pictures onto my desk top and from there I can upload them onto this blog by add media.  When Landen couldn’t help me as he had never done it I just started pushing buttons and sure enough I did it all by my self, aren’t you proud of me?  I guess there is life in the old gal yet So anyways here they are. 

This is the front.  Gina’s is of fish in a tank blowing bubbles in the water  James sweater has a train that runs along the bottom through towns and country side.  Colby’s has cars that run around the bottom that runs through city and country side.  Becca say’s people have already stopped her and commented on the sweaters. Now I have to come up with some neat patterns for next years sweaters.






I got so excited about getting the pictures on I forgot to get the back  to show you so I have gone in and edited the blog so you can see the back as well as the front.  In fact this is a better sweater view.  Thank you, Becca and Patty.  Shirley this is where that blue wool yarn went too  I got four kid’s sweaters from it.  One is in CA

Hey Bhai Daya see what you started, Shanti you have inspired me to try things on my own and it is working, I DID it.  These may not be big accomplishments to most people but to me it is hugh!  Rosemary, you know what I mean – you said I could make it and I did.  Now on and up to bigger and better things but it is that first step alone that is the most important.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
