Handmade Gifts from Stella's Grandparents

On Saturday, not only did we have nice dinner over at my parents' house, but we also received two wonderful surprises! The first was a baby doll made for Stella by Grandma Kaye. As you can see from the photos below, it's awesome! Grandma Kaye constructed the doll, made the clothes, sewed the facial features, and added the hair. The entire doll is handmade and absolutely beautiful!

The second surprise came from Stella's Grandpa Gauder. Of course, the name Stella means "star." So Grandpa Gauder made her an incredible star mobile that he crafted and machined out of aluminum. If you were to look over this mobile, you would see that its construction was by no means simple and could not be duplicated easily. It is a one-of-a-kind work of art!

Thank you, Grandma and Grandpa Gauder for these thoughtful gifts for baby Stella. We believe she will not only enjoy them throughout her childhood, but she will also cherish them as an adult.
