Baby A Turns One.....What A Thanksgiving!!!

This baby girl has been here a year today!!

AMAZING how she has changed and grown....


I NEVER imagined how much I could love this baby girl!

I wondered how I could love #2 as much as #1.

It didn't take a second to find out!

Now,#3 will be here tomorrow and I have no doubts about the love.

#2 showed me how God's love multiplies!

Happy Birthday Baby A!

Nonny and Poppy Sure Do Love You!

My Oldest Son Has A Birthday!

I guess you almost HAVE to have a son this old to be a Nonny!

This is my oldest son (and his wife)! Isn't he handsome??!

I pray for him every day...but especially on this day. The day he celebrates his 33rd!

I pray that he always loves Jesus.

I pray that he always loves his wife.

I pray that he adores his baby and is a good daddy.
And I rest on God's promises that he will!

Happy Birthday B!!!

Dad and I love you!

Weight Watcher Weigh-Ins are going great! I have lost 6.6 pounds towards my goal of 10-15 pounds! Someone asked me to talk about what I eat. Not Much. :) If you know anything about WW's, you know they use a POINT system. I only get 18. That's not much at all people! I usually eat my breakfast in it will last longer. I'll eat a bar of some sort that is 2 points. Later in the morning I'll eat an egg (2) or peanut butter on wheat. Lunch is a can of green beans (in vinegar). That may sound weird, but it's like a three bean salad without the other beans! I love anything with vinegar. With the beans I eat a can of tuna or a peanut butter sandwich or cottage cheese and fruit, etc. I always have an afternoon snack. Usually it's popcorn. Sometimes it's fruit or another bar. Dinner is small amounts of meat, veggies, fruit, salad or whatever we have or have left over from another night. Before bed every night, I have a Healthy Choice ice cream bar. I drink black coffee, water and diet Coke during the day. So, that's it for the food. I DO exercise every week day. LOTS of exercise for a 53 year old!!:) I work out with weights. I do lots of fast walking and I take a Tuesday *core sculpting* class that really kicks my rear end...literally!!! I have made WW's a life style for years and years but in the last year or so I slipped and my eating had gotten out of control. After losing the pounds I want to lose, I hope to make it a life style again!

Now, on to an important update!!!

The new grandbaby is growing like a weed! My DIL says she thinks she is going to give birth to a toddler! :) Her due date is Dec. 2, but baby boy/girl is breech for now, so she may go in a week early for a c-section. Keep this precious mommy and baby in your prayers. 

We. Cannot. Wait. !!!!

A Fun Weekend!

This weekend was a busy, fun one!

We had a shower for our daughter-in-law and son!

Hard to believe their baby will be here in just a few weeks!
K looks great and feels great..... if that baby would just flip around!!!!!

This is K and her mom. They look more like SISTERS!!!
This is her mom's FIRST grandchild.
She is in for a treat!!!!

Then, an hour or so later, our daughter and son-in-law went to a gala to benefit 
The Juvenile Diabetes Foundation.
Hubs and I kept the *littles* and took them out to dinner

Just a fun weekend with family and friends!!!

Met My First Blog Friend!!!!

Met my very first blog friend this morning!
Melinda, from Tales From My Empty Nest, and I live only about thirty minutes apart. We have tried for a while to get together and we finally met this morning at Cracker Barrel! It was fabulous!!! She is such a great person and so easy to talk to. It is obvious she loves her family, her job and Jesus.

Thank you Melinda, for a wonderful breakfast! 

Let's take that trip together!!! :)
