this is why i LOVE BEING A NONNY...........

The twins were born!!!

32 weeks four days!
Baby C weighed 3 lbs. and Baby T weighed 4 lbs. 5 oz.

They are indeed "fearfully and wonderfully made."

Mommy and Daddy are on cloud nine as you can expect.
Nonny and Poppy are too!

Thank you for praying with us that their little lives will be in His hands as they await the day they get to go home with their mommy and daddy as a family of four!

Please Pray

Please pray for the twins and their mommy.

Mommy is 32 weeks three days.

She has been sent to the hospital with high blood pressure and protein in her urine.

They will make the decision to deliver or observe for 24 hours.

I trust that God walked before them into that hospital today.

I trust that HE is in complete control.

My Nonny heart is praying for His will tonight.

Will you pray too?

A Tea Party For Two

The little girls will turn two (in November) and four (next week).

Yesterday was Tea Party Day for them. That two year old had asked over and over if party day was *right now*!!!!!

A princess arrived to paint their nails.
My daughter made each of them a shirt with a unicorn applique
and their names on each shirt.

A prince came to the party too!

What a fun tea party!

The girls loved every minute of it!

Happy Birthday Girls!

Poppy built it.

Nonny painted it.

Girls loved it!

(Celebrating a little early!)

Our grandgirls are turning two and four and are really into dress-up!

 I saw this on Ana White's blog and knew Poppy needed to make it.
(That Ana, she's fabulous!)

Poppy did a great job!
(That Poppy, he's fabulous too!)

P.S. He also made one for Nonny's playroom! :)

what is YOUR nonny name?

Yesterday I was reading a post from my friend Kat. She referred to herself as *GOOSE* when speaking of what her grandchildren call her. I have sent her a note asking why that name and it made me wonder....

"What do your grands call you, or what do you call your grandparents?"

I called my grandmother MaMaw. I don't know why. I'll have to find out.

My grands call me Nonny. 
I have some dear friends that are called Nonny and Poppy and I loved it.... so, I suggested it to my daughter. She liked it too, so Nonny it is!

Tell me tell me.....what about YOU?

What do you call your grandparents?

Or, what do your grands call you.....and WHY?

God Of Wonders...........

I was in Targ*t recently with my oldest granddaughter. They have a display of music you can push a button and listen to. EC wanted to push the buttons to change the songs but she kept going back to one song....GOD OF WONDERS. She said *Nonny, I love this one. Do you know it?* I told her I did. End of conversation. Later we were at her house and I could hear her from another room singing the only line of the song she heard in Targ*et.......GOD OF WONDERS. I was reminded of what stays in their precious little minds and I prayed that she would always choose GOD OF WONDERS as her favorite choice when pushing the buttons.

I promised her a treat in the mail......
GOD OF WONDERS is on it's way sweet girl.
Nonny sure does love you.
And that GOD OF WONDERS....HE does too.

Hubs is a biker.....As in bicycle!!!

Last weekend he rode in the 

Cycle North Carolina ride.

The ride goes from the mountains to the coast for a total of 495 miles! (Yeh, I know!)

Hubs had prior engagements so was only able to ride for three of the days (200 miles).

(He plans to complete the entire ride in 2012.)

As he rode his way through North Carolina, I ate my way through!!!

The first day he rode from Elkin to Mayodan. They ride all these back, country, mountain roads and the scenery was gorgeous! (I met him at the end of each day so I was able to see the sites as I rode in the car.) Along the route on the first day was the neatest country, general store. It has been written up in Our State Magazine and has been in their family since the 1800's!  We ate corn chowder, hoop cheese and fried apple pies at this store!!!

Some pics he took along the ride:

Pilot Mtn. North Carolina

The first day's ride ended at Autumn Creek Vineyards. God's country for sure!

Amazing how welcoming all of the host towns were! There are some good people in NC!!!

The second day began in Mayodan and went to Mebane.

7:00 a.m. Ready to ride!!!

Day two ended in Mebane.

WOW...look at all the gear they transport for these riders!!

The last day of the ride for hubs went from Mebane to Henderson. The people at the YMCA in Henderson were some of the most welcoming. They were lined up with cow bells to greet the riders!

I'm so incredibly proud of my husband. He's a 57 year old Poppy, and he climbed hills on that bicycle that I couldn't even WALK up!
Hills that made me tired going up them in my CAR! :) 

1,200 men and women participated in this ride across North Carolina this year.

WOW! Just WOW!

Give hubs a shout out! He reads my blog!!!

'ove you Poppy!

Busy Times! Random!

Happy Fall!
 Perfect weather in North Carolina this weekend!
 If you can't have summer ALL the time, then fall is the next best thing! 
Some signs of fall around my house:

Baby B went to his first Pumpkin Patch! His other grandparents are here visiting and got to enjoy the patch with Baby B and his mom and dad! 
Look how big this 10 month old is!!!

The *girl littles* are gearing up for fall and their birthdays. They went to Disney On Ice and wore their Disney dress-up clothes...which they dearly LOVE!

The TWINS are doing great! 
They had TWO baby showers this weekend. 
Their mommy is on modified bed rest so she got to enjoy her showers....and so did we!

Happy Birthday to my baby Sister.
 Love you AB!
This is a pic of baby sis and her babies!

BIG Sis left this world seven years ago today. Miss her as much today as I did then.

Hubs bicycled over 200 miles this past week....I followed times! A post later on that!

happy fall!!!
