  75. Many years ago we left our children with my mother while we spent a couple of nights in Chicago to celebrate one of our anniversaries. While at my mother's, our oldest daughter made us an ornament using an egg shell as a cradle. The baby was made using a button for the face. It is really precious. She is now almost 45. I can't remember how old she was but could have been in middle school. Nancy A: rangerer@sbcglobal.net
