I'm not the smartest French fry in the bag today! TU played football at 11:00. No sunscreen... I'm sunburned! After halftime when the rest of the family left... ( TU whooped up on Tulane)... Hubs and I went to sit in the Case Center... But geeze I was already burnt!
Oh she is gettin so fun! I'm having a blast keeping her and no she isnt spoiled. I just attend to her every need. I've lost 6 lbs cause there is no time for lunch... Gotta start training her to take a morning and afternoon nap. She likes to cat nap and snuggle with Nene whenever! So... It's time! No comes the how part!!! I've forgotten.
tomorrow I get to start caring for my sweet lil sugar lump! Yep, her mommy is going back to work and miss sugar lump is going to stay with nene!
the house will not be clean, the floors wont be mopped, the laundry wont be done and cooking will not begin until after 5:00, cause I'm going to enjoy every little second of this amazing baby girl.
I feel so privileged to be close enough to care for her! She is such a blessing. and YES! I will make her behave, but she will be spoiled with love. Its hard to leave your little one when you go back to work, I remember doing that with the boys, but hopefully they will know just how much this means to me to keep her safe and loved each and every day!
Fires near my sons home in Mannford, Okla. He is fine and we are starting to get wind shift and maybe rain! Pray for his neighbors that lost everything! Look at this happy girl... She loves her bottle !!!
This is my niece's daughter Payton. That girl loves done spaghetti.. They live near Houston... Missin her!
Oh my heavens... guess who is one month old. Well she was last week... I cant believe that she has been her for a month. She is changing and growing every day. I just love those chubby cheeks! You know how stinkin cute chubby cheeks, arms and legs are on babies, then darn they are not cute on adults.....
I had to make a run to Target this morning... Ryan got a free drink in the mail from my favorite place Starbucks... so I used it! Gotta love a passion fruit lemonade.
The lake house is clean, the grounds are clean, the AC is fixed and we are ready for the 4th of July... Yummy food and great family times... Hubs got a tent for Abby so she wont get hot... its only 16X20.... ha ha we always go big or go home...Ryan has a new boat so we hope to do some fun in the sun!
I need to go here, really I do. I just need to find an investor~ I could bring back photo's and try places to eat and of course try some spa's. Hubs doesnt like the beach in the heat of the summer. but I love it.... Let me know if you want to sponsor me.
Have you read this book. I saw it at Target today. I have heard its really full of sexual exploits... I just dont think I will be reading it. A few of my friends have kidded me for ever because I have never seen a pron movie. NO, I HAVE NOT! I really just dont want those images in my head, so I just dont think I want to read about it either. Is that what this is about... You know I love a good 'summer smut' book, but I dont want ragged porn.... let me know if you have read it....
I am really liking Emma Bridgewater pottery. I would love to start collecting her beautiful things. They are made in England and I love all things British... cause you know I am so royal!!!
Anyway this is one of her plates.
Got to see my lil sugar lump this week. I order from Bountiful Basket and she and her mommy came to pick up theri basket. We snuggled and cuddled for an hour while her mommy- Laura and I sipped on our sweet tea and got caught up on all things that have to do with that sweet baby girl!
Last Friday night I went to Vintage Market with my friend Pam. It was mucho hot be we had a blaast. we crammed all of out stuff into the Jeep and made out quite well... we were dust and gross afterwards, but that didnt stop us from going to the mall later, then drive through McD's for a burger!
This is what I bought. not the pile of papers, but the windmill. Its now out in my garden.... love it.
This week had been hot and hotter. I saw in my car the temp was 110 degrees... whew its bad.... Getting ready for the 4th of July party at the lake house... We went up today and the AC is out... meeting the guy in the morning to get it repaired. The guys cleaned and mowed the outside and I clean and mopped the inside. Time for burgers, boats and beer.... hehe I hate beer... Lemonade and wine for me!
Oh How much fun it is to be a Nene! My sister told me it would be but you just never get it... It was remarkable to watch son 2 become a dad! He is so cute with 'little miss sugar lump". Yep, thats what she is a sugar lump! Anyway, Im trying to be a really good nene and not bother them.. Oh boy that is soooo hard. I could just hold that princess all day and smell her sweet baby smell!
Oh and her mama! She is so adorable with her.... she just loves that sweetie girl! She is a sonderful mommy!
Any way, I found a bunch of old bandanas around the house and I think I whip this up for her to have tummy time when I keep her this fall. Yep, thats right... I get to keep her everyday! well every working day. Unless her other grandma wants her for the day.... she might! Thats Ok I can share... So I will be whippin this up and I will show you when Im finished!
Look at this house... I could just live ther! There is one kinda like it on the way to son 2's house! Seriously we could all live there! I coudl share this with the whole family! Im just pretending to be sitting on that porch sippin my lemonade while reading my summer reading list..... oh, I love dreamin..
But instead I will live in my "paid for" house and hubs and I will put in a new kitchen, build a shed in the back, put wood flooors in and live happily ever after being nene and poppy!
Its still hard to be a nene... I wish the lived next door and I could peek in the window of her nursery every day! hehehe.....
So... my birthday is coming up and hubs and I love ice cream. I like to make various flavors, but we have a big ole ice cream maker... You know the family size one. So I was just reading my blogs today and a friend was talking about making ice cream and right there on her web page was a link to amazon and the ice cream maker... tada its on the way!!!! Happy birthday to me from me......
Nothing better in the world than being a Nene... We are so proud to announce our sweet baby girl the daughter of our son and beautiful daughter in law. ... Born 5/23, 6 lb 12 oz, 19 tiny inches long. She is just dainty and petite...
Happy Mothers Day to my momma and my sister!
They taught me everything I needed to know to be a good momma to my boys. Mom taught me to cook, clean, play, teach and above all to pray with my children! I had 3 generations of fantastic women in my life to guide me to be the person I am today. I hope I have shared all those things with my boys and my soon to be grand daughter Abby Paige! Woo Hoo she will be here this week or next week.!!!! Stay tuned!
This is where I need to be right now! It centers me, it calms me, it restores my soul! Yes, I know I should just go read the Bible and let Jesus do all that restoring, but I think he created the ocean/beach just for my soul! Its needs restored about this time every year. Just ask my momma. Yes, I still call her momma. My dude husband calls his momma "mother". Me never its always momma! So I digress... I need to go soak up some ocean.
I am closing another door in this life book I have. I will nor be teaching preschool next year. I have a new job. Is a great job, A job I have waited and waited for! Its a dream job. Im am going to be "nene:, Yep I am keep my sweet little cherub angel baby Abby. No, she is not here yet, but any day now.
Her mommy will be home with her this summer, so I will teach summer camp only 2 days per week and my NE day school. Love those babies to death. Anyway cant wait for my new job to start. The only drawback is that they live about 30 minutes away. Oh well, we can figure out the logistics later... So I have the bedroom all ready for Abby and her Poppy is finishing some other stuff around the house so all we have to do is snuggle.
I want her mommy and daddy and her other grandmas to know all about her day so I think I will make a private blog that I can load pictures from each day and a little about her day so they can see her. I will be a family only blog! Of course I have to ask her mommy and daddy, but I think this way her other grandma will be able to just click away and see her sweet little face and her antics each day...
I am making banana bread today... I always coat the pan with cinnamon and sugar instead of flour. Well the cinnamon and sugar is in a container just like the seasoning salt... I dusted the loaf pan with seasoning salt... glad I caught it before I pour in the batter.... hehehe
Thats about it ... just needed a little beach time.. If there is anyone that wants me to go sit in their beach cabin for a few day... you just let me know... Im your girl!
This morning bright and early at 9:00 I went to the eye doctor.. He dilated my eyes and said they should be normal in about 2 hours... its now 1:15 and I am not normal.... Then I went across the hall and got my DTAP shot... you know the one with tetanus, diphtheria and whooping cough, yea that one. Will my arm hurts and I have a headache and tummy ache! Yep I am whining. But I am ready for little Miss Abby to get here. So Abigail Paige as soon as you are ready Nene P is ready to snuggle!!! Just saying!
