Baby Toes

Don't you just love the feel and smell of a new baby? Those tiny toes and fat little thighs! mmmmm yummy.
Yep we are getting one... well not actually moi, but my sister is going to be a Meme and I will be a great aunt. We all know I am already the greatest aunt, but now I can actually be a great aunt.

My nephew, the new "uncle to be" used to call me Aunt TT. In the south we all know that TT means to PP or tinkle. So while they new blessed event will take place in Texas, there will be no Aunt TT anymore. The baby must call me - drumroll please... "NeneP. " you get it - short for queenieP. Yep thats the name for moi.

I have always informed the kids that one of them will need to name a baby "Sloane". Can't you just see that on a birth announcement in beautiful scroll font?? See it huh? Then just think about the wedding announcement! So I have named the baby Sloane Kathleen- the middle name is of course after moi! BUT, no one likes my name :( they all laugh at it. So whatever they decide to name the baby... I will call it ..... hmmmm

Now- I have so much to do before the blessed event happens. My sister has not one creative bone in her body, so that leaves moi to be the creative one. I recently cut up our old wedding dress... no one was ever going to wear it and I am making 4 baby blankets! yippee I better get started. Oh, my mind is spinning, and this is just the great niece/nephew. Look out when I become a real NeneP.

Happy New Year.
Congrats to Kris and Nolan--- Baby Sloane will be a blessing to you both! hehehehe

Good bye 2009....

What a great Christmas we had at the house.
Snow, food, fireplace, snoozing and visiting!

Our mission trip was canceled because of the weather- too cold to work outside and more icy weather coming this way! The youth were sad, but its just not worth it to go and possibly get stuck or slide off the road. So, hubs and I are at home this week!!!!! I am making my mental list of honey-do jobs for him. I'm sure his list is, sit by the fireplace and watch movies! hmmmm.

Our 30th anniversary is coming up tomorrow. Wow, that sound like a long time! Well, I guess it is. Mike got me a beautiful set of pearls. Necklace, bracelet and earrings! love em. I got him a parcel of land in Ireland. Yep, he was very surprised. I found it on the internet and since he's of irish decent, this is perfect. Now we have to find time and $$$ to go over and see "our land". Since we are at home we will have to go eat and to the movies. Yummo. I think we will try Ted's. I didnt realize they had one in Tulsa. Im a bit slow!!!!

Have a good week, stay warm, be safe and for sure be careful on New Years. Have a designated driver !!!!

Heavenly Daze!

We are actually alive and kickin here in Cville. I have been busy doing I'm not sure what, but getting nothing done! Have you ever had one of those months. I am generally very structured and have my Christmas decs, out of the attic and the house decorated...even the bathrooms! WEll, this year is another story. The tree is out and has lights because they came on it. I put the tree in Lance's closet so it was easy to get. I threw some burlap webbing on it and some other stuff!
The rest of the house has candles, glass ornaments, snow and burlap or linen stuff that I could find in the house.... We have not even gone up i n the attic to get stuff. Hubs has offered, but I am not in the mood. Baaaaaah!

We finally gave the family photo's to all those we ordered to, so here ya go. The FAMILY. I love the pictures and want more, but holy moly at $80 for an 8x10 I have to go sell blood first!

This is hubs and I. I am really liken the green shawl. We had them taken at Dover Pond in Owasso. Beautiful

This is the whole family. Cut bunch huh. I made sure we had on white and jeans and then whatever else.
We are having Christmas here this year. We generally travel to Plano/Frisco, but Ryan is in Tulsa now- yippee and Lance lives in T-town too! So Christmas here. They have all ordered their favorites and we will have a calm great family time.
I have a part to get ready for, oh i almost forgot.... I went to get jeans at Goodwill for a mission trip and found the cayyyyyyutest boot. 1. brown Brighton with a cute buckly- $5.00, red Bass driving moccasins- $2.00 and lastly red cowboy boots- $5.00. NEVER BEEN WORN ALL OF THEM. The boots are red on the bottom and then have white on the top with a pony cut out!
I put them under the tree from myself, but I must wear them tonight!
Have a great week.
