A Winner....

What a happy face!!!!!
My grandson Caleb, won First Prize and Best in Division at the local fair this year for his digital pic he took of the knife and forks while on vacation in Hawaii this past July. He was setting the table for dinner and decided to take a b/w of the silverware with the sun casting the shadows like that.
When they brought their little memory photo albums over to show Papa and I, I told him that it was good enough to enter in a contest....so Aaron and Robin did just that and to his surprise he won.....no surprise to Nana......he's always a winner in my heart!!!!

Oh, I almost forgot the best part....when they got the picture back with the ribbons there was and envelope with a check in it for $3.00.....is that cool or what!!!


There is nothing more precious then happy, laughing, smiling children!!! What blessings from God!!!!

Hi Tammy, for some reason the first pic won't enlarge but the second one will so you can see his pic and prozes up close!

Hugs back at ya!!!

you should check and see if an art studio would sell copies of his pic. Who knows - a business in the making. Congrats grandson Caleb.

Hi Noel,
Haven't felt up to travelling around the blogs but here at last... I was so impressed with Caleb's Photo.... He definitely should pursue that path . He surely has creative ideas....
Hope all is well with you ... I am getting by.. Hoping for better days ahead.
Take care Dear Heart
