Here is one of the towns Jace and I have built together - JaceTown. They vary from time to time, but all are colorful concoctions made of disparate toys of varied sizes.

He loves pulling out all the toys, but he is not fond of clean-up time and has come up with a ploy to 'leave it up til tomorrow', haha.

Jace is growing like the proverbial weed, and we enjoy each day we get to play together. This summer has included lots of pool time. Coming up this fall - a trip to Disneyworld to see his favorite guy, Mickey Mouse. We must hurry! Superheroes are to be the focus of his new bedroom, and I fear Mickey will be taking a backseat before too long.

Being a grandparent is similar to living your own childhood again. I highly recommend it!

Is Facebook the new Blog?

Is Facebook the new Blog?  Kinda sorta, I think.  I have been very busy on FB, but not too busy on my blogs.  I update my wedding blog regularly, but this one has had short schrift.  Jace has been a frequent star on FB, and my life happenings too.  Here are a few Jace photos:

Here he is helping me make Unbaked cookies.  Yum, yum.
Here, he is helping me make lemon bread.  He liked using the mixer.
 December 2013 - just my little guy, growing up too fast.

Coloring with Daddy - good times!

Back to the question, is Facebook the new blog?  In many ways, I think it has taken over.  It is easier to stay up with since you're scanning messages there anyway.  It takes less effort and is more accessible.  I have a new Facebook page for my art that is updated almost daily - please join me there!  I also have a new website, but I still have two fairly active blogs, the aforementioned wedding blog and an art blog, and this friends and family blog which has been ignored of late.  I'll try to do better, but FB is a better way to catch me now, or my wedding blog or website.  Happy 2014!
