I'm a Dork about How to Blog

I can't figure out how to make my blog look as good as everyone else's. My photos always look dumb - they won't go anywhere except right on top, and the ones of the babies aren't even the same size. Someone told me to do the blog in html, but I can't figure out how to make that work--the "edit html" tab doesn't even work for me.

Argghh!! I'm a beautiful-blog soul, trapped in a dorky blog.

Beautiful New Grandbabies

It's been a whirlwind three weeks - three new grandbabies! Each one arrived in good health, and of course they are beautiful. So here I would like to introduce...

Rebecca Jennete Carlson, born March 28. She weighed 7 lb, 14 oz, and was 21 1/2 inches long.

Madeline (Maddy) Sophia Koponick, born April 1. She weighed 6 lb, 2 oz, and was 19 1/4 inches long.

Blake Everett Haynie, born April 15. He weighed 7 lb, 7 oz, and was 21 inches long.

Grandma Kathy agrees to Pay it Forward

Pay it forward
I read this on Kendra's blog, and thought how wonderful it would be to receive a gift from HER- so here goes!

Pay It Forward--a little blog game called "Pay it forward."How it works: The FIRST THREE people to leave a comment on this post will receive at some point during this year a gift from ME. What it will be and when it will arrive will be a total surprise. The CATCH is that YOU MUST PLAY TOO! Before you leave your comment here, write a pay it forward post on your blog to keep the fun going (you can cut and paste these instructions). Then come back and let me know that you are going to play, and sit back and anticipate the arrival of your gift.So, to all my family and friends, don't make me feel like a dork. Leave a comment and play along!I've decided that the gifts I give will be something handcrafted by me. So it might be cookies (if you live close), or a something I would sew, or something else creative and crafty. Maybe even a chance to go hiking with me! It will be a surprise, but I think you will like it. Have fun!
