Wordless Wednesday – Our Grandbaby is One! #ww

Our granddaughter turned The big ONE last Wednesday, November 20th! Can you believe it!? We had a mini party on Sunday, with her Daddy, Aunt Pie and great grandparents.

{almost} Wordless Wednesday – Week In Review #ww

Last Wednesday our daughter turned 13. THIRTEEN! I dug out this photo of her and Ginger when they were both just tots so I could compare it to Wednesday. Oh my how they have grown! My two girls, I just tear up looking at this!  Pie has grown into such a beautiful young lady and […]

A Carrot Cake for Moms 60th Birthday

Unbelievably, my mom turned 60 on Saturday! I can’t wrap my brain around it because for some reason my mom lives perpetually at the age of 38 in my mind. So for my forever 38 mom’s birthday, we invited her over for scalloped potatoes, salad and her favorite dessert — carrot cake. I make carrot […]

Wordless Wednesday – a birthday boy #ww

My son’s birthday was last Thursday. He turned SEVENteen. I find it very strange to look at him and see someone who is so close to adulthood. I always expect to turn around and look into the smiling face a chubby cheeked 3 year old. He is so not three anymore. ☛ I want to […]

My son is another year older – Where’s the pause button?

Time seems to fly by quicker than I can catch up. I blink and a moment is gone, a day, a week, another year. My first, my boy…. my little chubby cheeked rebel has somehow turned into a gangly 15 year old teenager. How did that happen? I look at him and see his childish […]

Happy Birthday Dad, Memories are all we have

Dad’s 61st birthday is today and the memories are surrounding me, tugging at my foggy brain and the hands of time. One memory of my Dad that I hold on to is of him and me as a child, sitting in church, swinging my feet from the folding chair and listening to the hum of […]
