The Little Bed Comes Out Again

When Audra was just a little tike her Grandpa made her a little bed, so she could move out of her crib. He was a very handy man and owned his own woodworking tools, so it is sturdy and will last through several generations of kids, moving out of their cribs as well. So far we've kept it at our house and put it up for Michael to sleep in when he was visiting and at the appropriate age. Now it's Sydney's turn. It will stay here at Gramie La La's for the all the grand kids to use until Audra has children of her own.

Here's a picture of the Audra's little bed that Grandpa Korte made.

I miniaturized a set of twin sheets to fit it. Yep, those are the Smurfs. Remember those cute little blue guys. That was back when cartoon were still cute and they weren't so violent as they are now. Boo! Hiss! Sponge Bob! and all those other stupid cartoons they have now days. But I digress....

I would like to include a photo of Audra in the little bed, but that would involve climbing into our loft one more time and I've been up their countless times this weeks already for Ashley's baby shower photo project and other things we've had going on. Anyway, I'll leave you with a picture of Audra when she was little.

And the post would not be complete without a picture of the man that made this post possible - Grandpa Korte. He was one terrific grandpa, father and father-in-law and surely we could say the same about Grandma. They are missed by all, but we are thankful for all the wonderful memories we have of them, such as this one.
