Whew! Life is an adventure with the Griffins....







Dear friends and family,
Bubba and I are enjoying working together at Curls and Pearls. We are closed on Sunday and Monday and work Tuesday through Saturday mostly from 8:00-5:30. We don't have posted hours. If we need to get Brody from school or plan an event around Ian and Atlee we can. I work by appointment and Bubba is making jewelry all day. We have Lucky Buck Jewelry in two other store fronts than our own now. He is an amazing artist and I am always glad to get the prototypes. Right now he is using a lot of copper and also making bracelets with old flatware. Really cool....
Ian is making good grades in school and had the first and only fortune cookie last week. He said, "I hope there is a girlfriend inside!". He also wished for one for Valentine's Day. He is a sweet child and will someday make a wonderful husband. He is a lover and a fighter. That should be interesting....
Atlee is making good grades in school as well. They are in the same classroom and so the only competition is who finishes their homework first. It has worked out beautifully for us. She is finished with all of her extracurricular activities and Ian only has one more week. Atlee is independent and growing up fast. She loves her friends and has many. They both love to read and we are very happy about that. She enjoys riding her bike and singing. She wants to write and sing her own music someday and Ian wants to make "legos". Maybe they will make a fortune on both.....
Bubba has a show tomorrow at the elementary school and we are very excited! This will kick off our show season and also buy me some tires on my van. Woo Hoo! I need them badly. The next show will be Art on the Lake here in Guntersville in April. In May, we go to Homestead Hollow in Springville, AL. Make plans to come see us. I am so proud to call Bubba an artist. You should see his stuff.. AMAZING.
Me, well I am loving life and all that goes with it. The only thing I would change is my 12-15 loads of laundry a week. God has been amazing to all of us and held our hand along the way of our new adventures. Happiness is wanting what you already have......
We are very involved with Blessings in a Backpack each week and will do that during the school year. We are still in need of a babysitter each Thursday night for us to go and volunteer. We also need volunteers each week at 5:45 at the Guntersville Church of Christ. We are packing over 700 backpacks a week.
Thanks for letting me share my family with you.
Blessings,
Wendy
