Weekend With A Four Year Old Niece...Chocolate Milk On Tap!

What do you do when a four year old niece spends the weekend? eat breakfast in an old desk your mommy use to sit in play with Barbie dolls

....and friends visit horses

.......dress like a princess while making lollipops

....and go dressed like that to Costco (because that's something mommy would never let you do)

What a fun weekend M! 
Miss Angelove sure does love you!

I love the tee's and I love their *giving* statement.

This is what they have to say:

"We are passionate about sharing our blessings with others. 
Since inception, Dress Blessed has donated a portion of our profits
 to a variety of Christian charitable organizations.

Christmas Cards In January

Truth be told, they might still be up in April.

I love seeing the families that mean so much to me.
If you sent me a picture card, you are being prayed for as I see your sweet family.

Who says you can't have Christmas in January?....or April!!!!

Pray For Our E.C.

Our precious three year old granddaughter, E.C., fell today. She had to have staples in the back of her head. God protected E.C. She is going to be fine. But if you would, will you pray for her? That was a lot for a little girl to go through.

Her Nonny and Poppy sure do thank you.

Tulips...On A Friday!

A Friday morning treat from them:

It's the little things...
like tulips on a Friday.

Is Nonny A Grown Up?

I had this conversation with E.C. last week after she saw a *Chick Fil A* cup.

E.C.: "Nonny, I want a drink of that."

Me: " Sure"

E.C.: "But, I have to ask a grown up."

Me: *Nonny IS a grown up.*

E.C.: "You ARE?"


excuse the blurry. she was in motion!

This Is COOL!!!!!!

Our business is Propane. I know, Glamorous.

This is what a normal propane tank looks like:

Years ago, you could find propane tanks that were ROUND and  looked like this:

Hubs found two of these tanks and had a BRILLIANT idea.

He is going to change it seasonally and put these out in front of the business.

So far, this is what he has done:

A Christmas Ball in December.
A Snowman in January.

He put two tanks together to make the snowman!

How cool is that???!!!

If you are by and give a shout out to the snowman on the hill!

A letter, a card, a postcard.

Let me know if you will join me.

Cute Hats! Cute Girls!

The little grand girls have red winter coats. I tried to find them matching hats and gloves for Christmas. It was tough because everything was pink or blue or purple. So, I went to Etsy....and look what I found!

She made the *girl* version for my girls to match their red coats. Take a look:

Cute Hats! Cute Girls!

A Convert????

My mom gave me bedroom shoes/slippers for Christmas.

No big deal, right?

I've never worn bedroom shoes/slippers.
I know. Weird.

But, I wear shoes.

All the time.

I get up. Get Dressed. Put shoes on.

Really, I like to wear sweats until bedtime so I can wear shoes.

Don't ask me why. Cause I don't know.

Anyhoo, back to the slippers.

I thought they were cute, so I decided to try them.

I think I am converted.

The jury is still out, but things are looking good.

Paci Baby

When E.C.'s mommy had our second grandchild, E.C. was 24 months. To ease into the transition of having a baby sister, they bought her a baby doll....her first doll. E.C. has never really taken a pacifier, but the new baby (A) had been given some at showers,
so there were pacifiers in the house.
E.C. named her new baby

"Paci Baby"

E.C. and Paci Baby have become great friends. They sleep together every night and Paci Baby goes along for the ride on most car trips. 
My daughter-in-law captured the essence of Paci Baby and E.C. when she got this picture.

It is a treasure.

A memory she will always have of her childhood.

E.C. and Paci Baby. December 2010.

P.S. Paci Baby does not have a pacifier.:)
