Friday update...

This week, I watched the kids...and 
had a dentist appointment on Friday.
I needed a root canal and it went
fine, but this weekend I've been in a 
lot of pain...a constant dull throb. 
Got meds but they make me feel sick 
to my stomach.
Then D & I went to see Eddie Izzard.
He's awesome. Here's a link to his Imdb page.
One of my best friends came over and hung out 
me last night, on Thursday my nephews came to
see us too. Gracee is talking so much more and 
I enjoy teaching her new words!

Kinda of a boring week...but I am ok with that!

Totally missed it!

Friday came and went and I forgot to update!
Not a lot has been happening. Still on my 'diet',
watching babies, playing in the gardens,
and preparing for my road trip to Mississippi.

Isn't she perfect!! 
Thanks for stopping by!

Friday again?

Wow! How fast did that week fly by?
I am the baby whisperer...did you know that?
I have other peoples babies...a lot.
 The babies were not feeling well,
Gracee is teething, Simon got shots!
Needless to say...it was a long week.
Thursday, we had a weird storm that caused this.
The only damage was to the guttering...and the tree.
And the nest resting on the guttering.
How the dogs didn't get them is beyond me.
They were on the ground for many hours..the 
storm was at 11 am, we found them at 5 pm. 
My hubby helped me get them back in the
nest and we placed them in the part of 
tree that was still standing. I watched all evening..
...went out super early...nothing. =(
After my workout, I saw this
I was completely overjoyed!!! 
She came back!
Then the tree guys tells us that it 
has to come down....hopefully
not for a while, so they can get 
bigger. In other news:
My Aunt gave me my Grandmother's 
bible. Grams had several. Inside there 
was sweet lil treasures...clippings
of things she wanted to keep.
It is awesome! Thanks for 
popping by today sorry for
the long post!

The week in review

So, I'm trying to use the blog for more than just card challenges and thought that a week in review on Fridays would be just the ticket.
 I've been babysitting this cutie for the last couple of weeks. Which has filled my days...between him and Grace.
On Wednesday, Jagger came over for a visit. It was great! Gracee misses him a lot. She was mean as a bear that day...but they wore me slick!
 Every toy we own was out and on the floor! Here they are looking at books together! So sweet!
I am very happy that Dwen got to see him too. Dwen and the Mom don't get along very well. But both were on their best behavior and Jagger was so happy to see Uncle D!
I've been spending more time in the gardens, less time in the studio. But I did create this page for a challenge. I always sing Rod Stewart's Forever Young to the kids...
Thanks for popping in. 
Hoping to add more stuff soon!
Have a great weekend!
