    A fab concept Leslie 🙂 I must have a word with Kim and see if she will enter. All the other grandchildren are far too young.

    The prizes – both adult and children – sound lovely. You are a most generous person 🙂

    I must hunt out a suitable stamp image for this.

    Love and hugs

      I hope Kim does enter. It would be fun to see the color book images from England 😀 I’m sure Disney has a strangle hold on the UK as well as it does here in the US 😀

      Enjoy your hunt for an image and the coloring process :D’

      Love you – Leslie

        Shelly, forgive me if I seem to be “Bossy”.

        When adding a link to one of your blog posts to my blog or others, open a new tab in your and go to your blog address. Just like if someone else were going there from the outside. For example, “”. Then click on the title of the post you want to have linked. Copy the information you see in the “address bar” then paste that where you want it to go.

        Right now, I get an error message “You are not allowed to edit this item.” Anyone wanting to see Will’s FANTASTIC water color and the work you did in the hotel can not be seen 😦

        Hope this helps you out for the next time you want to do this.

        Love you – Leslie

        open a new tab in your and go to your blog address. Sorry, I left out the word BROWSER. That would help you to understand what I’m saying 😀

        i dont think you’re bossy. I am new to getting this stuff figured out so I can use all the help and advise you want to share 🙂

        OK How is this link ?

        Yes, Yes!! That worked fantastic. Everyone now gets to see Will’s delightful sunbathing mice!! Along with the beautiful items you made while at a hotel with your family enjoying some down time 😀

        Glad you didn’t feel I was being mean to you. Heck, I’ve made the same mistake as you have done and had to learn that one 😀

        Love you – Leslie

        When you upload your photos into WordPress, instead of clicking on the button to add the photo into your post scroll down a bit further and click the button there. That will save your photos in the “Gallery”. Once you have uploaded all of your photos then go back into your Gallery and select the ones you want for the slideshow. I think there is a button to press to make your slideshow. Been a while since I’ve done that so you may have to hunt around for the proper thing to do.

        Sorry to hear about all the illness that you guys are afflicted with this season. I have to ask this. Since you live in an area that is pretty moisture laden with the heavy rains and snows, do you have mold hidden in your home? Areas that show water damage on walls and ceilings? That crap wrecks havoc on the health of people and you guys really get whacked year long with illness.

        I know you are a cleaning fool – like I tend to be – so it is not your housekeeping in question. That insidious stuff likes to hide in dark areas and grow. The mold spores get spread throughout your home through the opening and closing of the doors and the heat and air conditioning blowing and circulating through your home.

        I know you don’t need the added expense of a test but you might look into having an air quality person come by and take some air samples in your home for mold. If it comes up nothing then you won’t have to worry about the cost of reconstruction to get rid of that stuff.

        You poor Sweetie. Always taking care of one or another child then you get whacked with it. I’m so sorry to hear about your constant battles with illness 😦

        Love you – Leslie
