Time to pack away the

Time to pack away the
that my son so lovingly made for little CJK.

CJK wanted to be a BOAT---
Nope!  A BOAT!
As you can see, he is pretty happy with
the boat his Daddy made him.
(I overlaid his real name with 
CJK'S Lil' Boat)

And he can walk around in it.

I need your address and this is 
Your Sign!
 Hope you like it!

If you don't know Kim-go visit HERE.
She is a great person!

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone

Thanks again and I hope you have a 

We will probably do this again

Meanwhile, please look at their site
and consider a sign for a 
Christmas or Birthday present

SON-IN-LAW   -  Big J!

  1. Diana, I love CJK's boat. He is so cute. Congratulations to KIm...she'll love her sign. We did not set the clocks back last night...and Ted was up at five this morning...yikes . Here's hoping our November is a wonderful month for all. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  2. Wow, wow, wow!!! I am so excited and totally surprised!! What fabulous news to wake up to and a great way to start November. Thank you so much, please thank the boys and that adorable boat for choosing me! I absolutely love it and my head is spinning with places to put it. xoxo Kim

  3. Congrats to Kim for wining the sign!
    That little boat and cute little one inside it was perfect for Halloween!!

  4. What a great costume! Congratulations to Kim!! I am envious of that sign! They do have some wonderful items in their shop.

  5. Oh that boat is so cute and sweet CJK looks extremely happy! Happy birthday to Big J, many blessings to him.
    Congrats to Kim for her lucky win of that cute sign! Your pic is cute...oh Dianna, you're so funny!

  6. What a cutie! Love that idea! I'm sorry I haven't been able to read all your posts or respond by email. It's been a crazy week.

  7. Gee, Diana. You are so inconsistent. One minute I am smiling at your beautiful grandson and seeing how much you love him, and the next minute you are using your words like brats! ;-) Such a beautiful little boy. Happy birthday to your son-in-law and many more.

  8. Happy Birthday to your son-in-law, Diana! Can you believe I put away all my Halloween stuff so I can be ready for the month of November? CJK looks so cute in his little boat. He has the sweetest smile, has anyone ever told you that? (maybe it's his eyes that are smiling). Oh, my gosh, I didn't know about setting the clocks back today until I saw on my computer what time it was.

    Good Morning, Maxine hehehe.

    love, ~Sheri
