A Little Bit of This...A Little Bit of That!

It's official! Karissa can now swim like a fish! (Actually, she learned the beginning of August, I'm just very behind!) Swimming is the best exercise for her arthritis, so we are thrilled that she LOVES the water! Her favorite thing is doing "Cannon Balls" and then swimming to me...so cute! Check out the video from her last swimming lesson:

She's in her "Sweet" stage right now and is such a joy to be around. She's either Super Sweet, or Really Rotten!

We leave for New Hampshire next Tuesday. I can't wait! All three of us really need a vacation! It's been a rough year! We will be staying with Jim & Nancy (Todd's parents). Plan on doing lots of nothing! Might bring some scrapbook projects to work on, we'll see. They have a pontoon boat, so I'm sure we'll be fishing and touring the lake. We will also visit a real castle. Karissa is VERY excited to see it! Need to remember to pack her princess dress. Wouldn't that be a cute pic!

My gallbladder was removed a couple of weeks ago and I am fully recovered. Hurray! My Mom came up and took care of me and the fam. She has made Karissa THE CUTEST dresses! Karissa is all about TWIRLING! If the dress does not twirl, she does not want to wear it! Here's a pic of her twirling in one of the dresses my mom made. Isn't she talented? I'm sure my friends with little girls will be fighting for these hand-me-downs!

That's it for now!

Stay tuned for the continuing saga of the Leiterman Family!

That dress is way too stinkin cute...love it. Wish I knew how to sew so I could make some of those cute things for my granddaughters.
Blessings to you all. Have a great vacation
