Baby B had his first birthday party and it was fabulous!

His other grandparents visited from up north. Do you think they love him???:)

Sweet family!

#2 granddaughter, A, celebrated her 2nd birthday.
 It was so much fun being with her on her special day.

Look what she threw away:
*Pa-Pa* is all gone.

Kinda sad really. The end of another baby thing. 

E.C.'s arm is much better.

Hopefully she is as good as new!

The twins are home!

They are still little peanuts, but are catching up quickly!

I DID get an artificial tree. 
  Got it at Costco....easiest thing ever! 



That's LIFE here right now.
 How about YOU?

*I Pray Just About As Much As I Breathe*

I have a friend who is going through a very difficult season.

Because I love this friend dearly, I have been on my knees for her and her family.

I try to check in with her daily just to let her know how much I care.

As I talked with her this weekend and asked her how her day had been, this was her reply:

"I pray almost as much as I breathe."


"I pray almost as much as I breathe."

Not only did that describe her hurt and her pain, it described a heart  for Jesus.

It described the way He wants our hearts to beat for Him. 

It described her longing for Him to intercede.

It described  how much we need a Savior. 

My friend's words reminded me of how pleased my Lord is with her

......and how we should all

"pray as much as we breathe."

Will you join me in prayer for my friend?

Just a Little Visit to The ER

Riding *horsie* with my Poppy and had a little fall.

Nothing a cherry popsicle can't cure.
(But,  after FIVE hours in the E.R. until after 1:00 a.m., Nonny and Mommy need more than a

There's A First Time For Everything

I THINK this is the first time in our 36 years of being married that we haven't traveled during the Thanksgiving holidays. 
36 years of driving on Thanksgiving.  
These little turkeys are keeping us close to home this year.
(Check out their mom's post HERE.www.moxiemadeblog.com)

More cute turkeys!!!

Happy Thanksgiving. 

So blessed and so undeserving.

I'm Over 50, So I Guess This Is For Me!

Seriously, who DOESN'T read Kelly's Korner Blog?

She has a *Show us Your Life* series every Friday. 
Today is *Older* bloggers....maybe over 50. :)

So, I guess that's me. 
54 IS over 50, right?

When I was in my 20's and 30's, 50 sounded so OLD. Now, 54 sounds and feels so young.
Most days.

What do you think you'll be doing when you are 54?

~I looked at artificial trees last night. UGH. I didn't see any I liked without paying a FORTUNE!
 I still plan to get one though.

~#2 grand is doing MUCH better! Thanks to those of you who have prayed and asked about her.

~The twins should be home soon. Just have to take ALL feeds by mouth in order to go home.

A race here to see who will finish their bottle first!! :)

(Side note: Mom gives them only her milk but they have to learn to drink it  by using a bottle first.)

~Baby B will be one year old in ten days. You don't get to be the baby very long in this family!

~Christmas shopping has begun. So fun to shop for the kiddos.
And, just so I don't leave a grand out.....

Oh Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree


Real or Artificial?

We have never used an artificial tree. 
But, for convenience sake, I think I am about to take the plunge.
What do YOU use and WHY?

Oh, and these boys......
One wants a real tree. One doesn't. :)

Pray For This Precious Angel

Grandaughter #2 (in birth order) is sick. She has a stomach bug and now both ears are so inflamed they expected they might burst last night. She is one miserable 23 month old! If you think about her today, will you pray for her? She has my heart...like big time.

Look who just worked her first 100 piece puzzle:

~1. I've been so busy since the twins were born, I still have granola bar wrappers in my purse from Oct 25...their birth day.

~2. My healthy eating has gone downhill. "Bout to start veggin' it up again.

~3. Christmas is here. What?????

~4. My driveway has been dug up to pour new cement. I have to park across the street. I have a fear of walking to my car in the early, dark mornings. Not of people, but of animals. Is that weird? P.S. I live in the city.

~5. I miss my grandchildren when I don't see them for a few days. Like, BAD.

~6. Daylight Savings Time is not my friend.

~7. Three cute nieces/nephew visited for two days:

~8. Happy Anniversary to our girl and her hubs! Five years ago God answered the prayers of a mom and dad who had prayed for their daughter's mate. 
He blessed her with the most humble man we know. 
And we are so grateful.

Told you it was RANDOM.

The End.
