New Babie in the House!

We have a new babie! Puppy that is. I can't believe we did this at this time, but we did. I guess planning a wedding isn't enough stress, I needed to potty train a puppy! Which by the way is not going that great! I am taking any advice in this area if you have any or know of someone who does! It has been a long time since we have had a puppy in the house. We are still not sure what her name is, we are open to suggestions in this area too! We are leaning towards Sophia Loren and call her Sophie! We like Zoe too! I will post some pictures of her and maybe someone will be able to tell what name she looks like! I hope to post some other pictures too!

We have a location!!

We finally found a church to have the wedding at! It is so beautiful and has a history too! It has stained glass windows and is on a winding country road that has trees meeting at the top over the road! Now we still have so much to go but at least we know where it will be the day and sort of the time! I got to pass out candy for Halloween tonight for the first time in over 20 years! We have lived in the country for all those years and never had any goblins. I had so much fun! They were dressed up so cute! I let them help themselves and they couldn't believe it! They thought they had hit the jack pot! Oh to be young again! More later!

Baby Day!

I will get to see the babies today! I am so excited! I think they are too. KB called me several times yesterday, she wanted me to know that it was just one more day! I can't wait to see all of them. I also can't forget that the braces go on tomorrow! Here goes another old lady looking like a teen! I hope they aren't noticeable! I don't know how you can hide a full mouth of shining metal though. I almost forgot about the "wedding dress" trip! We went yesterday for the first try at the special dress. We were helping ourselves and couldn't find anything that was just standing out, and then the sales lady says "all these dresses from here down have been marked down to $100 dollars", we started pulling them down and headed to the dressing room! We tried to really love them but after we would have to rip them apart and start all over with the dress, it wouldn't have been a bargin anymore! Oh well we tried! We have to keep looking and looking until we find it! We just don't have too long to look! We will survive! We may have a few scars after, but we will make it!
More later, I've got to get ready for the babies!

Where did I put my mind?

Okay this is the day we have waited for and now that is it here...OH MY GOODNESS! There is so much to do. I know what to do but everything I know is back home not here. This will be a new learning experience! I have always said I love challenges but I'm not sure about this one!
On top of all this the People Department called and said I would be in the next class that would go to training, okay that sounds great, when will the next class be? Oh probably Dec. OH NO! Okay I won't get excited, I will put my big girl panties on and deal with it right? I think I want to put them over my head and run! I will have to post pone the Dec. class and wait for the next one. Wow! That was easy to decide now let's hope it is allowable. I will be going to see the babies soon and I actually think they are as excited about seeing me as I am them! I don't know if their parents are as excited! LOL! I hope they are. We are going to have fun! I will be getting braces put on and I think it's silly that an old woman like me has to have braces and now I will have wedding pictures with them! UGH! Oh I just had a thought, I have noticed people that wear braces their lips seem to be more full and thicker, I could possibly have full lips for the wedding pictures! YEA! Oh wait the pictures aren't about the mother of the bride, I forgot it's about the bride! Phew! I almost had a panic attack there for a minute! It will be a time for some great family pictures. More later, maybe!

There is a ring and a date!

We have a date and a ring! We just need a place the right time and lots of money!! We also need to start praying for the best weather for traveling! It will be asking a lot from our families and friends to drive long distance to share in the wedding! Being in Dec. also makes for yukee weather! We think we might have found a house pretty close for them! There still are a lot of questions left to answer but we have to lean on the Lord and allow him to work in our lives and trust him!

Dentist Love em'/Hate em'?

Dentist - You either love them or hate them! You go in for a normal procedure and you come out with no feelings in your tongue and your lips swollen out the wazoo! You can tell I went to the dentist today! I am still having a hard time feeling my tongue! I am a little chicken when I go to the dentist and this is a new one since I moved. I had my other dentist for almost 30 years, and he used the laughing gas- oh yeah- I don't recall laughing, but I know I didn't feel a thing! I asked this one for some laughing gas and was informed he doesn't use it because it was so bad for women! Uh Oh! 30 years of laughing gas! That explains it! So today I had to be a big girl and take it like a man without gas! 4 or 5 shots of Novocaine later I still can't function as well as I want! Oh well it needed to be done! So if this post doesn't make any sense, not that my posts usually do, it would be the drugs that I have taken doing the posting! Tomorrow should be a better day!

The Girls Supper Club!

These girls are having fun! Sissy cooked supper for us and her friend that she works with came over to eat with us! We thought our feet needed to be seen! Notice the peace sign with the toes! Bet I couldn't do that again. Great fun! Great soup, too!

Another fun time at the Dole Pineapple Plantation! Eating pineapple! My friend, my sis and me! We had more fun eating !

Exciting News!

We just heard the news that the strike was over! I don't know all the details of it yet, but I'm just glad it's over! We went through a 2 mo. strike years ago and I knew I didn't want to do that again! It was hard getting caught up on everything! Praise the Lord for his answer to prayer! I had to put off the braces because of some fillings I had to have, but when the strike happened we weren't sure if we had coverage, so now with the strike over guess I will start on the unpleasant procedures! FUN! Bring on the pain pills! I have some new pictures of the Hawaii trip that I will try to post!

Where did the summer go? We were in the 80's yesterday and now 50's today! What's with that? It must be the hurricane Karen coming! My mom told me that there would be a hurricane named after me and I think she's a comin'! I hope she doesn't tear things up! What a weekend we just had! It was very busy with our visitor! I fixed a good ole home cooked pot roast and all the fixin's for our Sunday meal and we all just had to sit around and moan because we over ate! We also got a look at the "ring"! I don't think it will be too long now. We have already started planning a little bit. It is hard to think about spending money right now with GM out on strike! Who knows how long that will last! Not too much longer I hope! Well I got to go for now! More later!

Baby Love!!!

This is my precious 7 month old granddaughter! She is actually 6 months in this picture. She is the baby of the 4 children that my son and daughter-n-law have. She has been the best little baby for them. The bow might possibly be as big as she is! I hope she doesn't pull a neck muscle trying to hold her head up!

The "Old" Love Birds!

It seems just like yesterday that we were the younger love birds! The time has flown by so fast that I'm not sure if we had fun or not! We know one thing for sure and that is God has blessed us far beyond our expectations and we are grateful for all he has given us!

The Love Birds!

We have enjoyed getting to know Michael! We knew him when he was younger and a lot shorter! He is 6'4", and she is doing good to be 5'3"!

Spending TIme With The Love Birds!

I came in from OKC on Wed. and Candace's friend Michael flew in to KC the same time too! I guess he is still considered a friend, although we are planning a wedding, slow but still getting some information around! I think we will be hearing something soon though, I can feel it! They knew each other when they were younger and he moved away and we lost contact with his family, but they found each other again on a blog and now as they say the rest is history! We will be taking them to a great family style restaurant today and maybe catch a movie. I am enjoying visiting with him because he was so young when we knew them and my how he has grown up! I will try to post a picture so you can see what a cute couple they are!

Baby Withdrawals

I'm back home and missing the babies! I got to spend 3 days with them and loved every minute of it! I never get enough time with them. They kept asking me if I could put them in my suitcase and bring them home with me! The oldest one said "Grana, be sure to leave part of it opened so I can breathe!" It is amazing the things they can come up with, of course they have some great genes! I was in back home to start procedures of braces. I can't believe that at my age I have to start braces. I have some TMJ problems that they are wanting to correct and some other terms that I don't know, since I don't have a medical degree! I just hope that it will go by fast and that it will be easy! I will try to post some pictures of metal mouth later! That should be interesting! I have some pics of the babies that I will be posting later! Stay tuned!

All of the cuties together!

This is a fun day at the Zoo!!!

Cutie Patootie!!!

I told you she was a cutie!!!

Not going to class yet!

I found out today that I would not be going to class in October! I have an interview date of July 26 and the invites for class that went out today was through June 22. I am a little disappointed but know that God is in control here and that I will go when it's his time. I will probably make the November class, if they have one that is! I don't know if that is an option or not yet! I love that they hire fun loving people and now they have started hiring wild and crazy! Can't get any better than that! I just know that if this is what God wants for my life it will happen! It will be great being able to fly to visit the most precious babies in the world! I will post some pictures of them here for you to see for yourself!

New Career

I know it has been so long since I posted! I could make up a ton of excuses but the real reason is I don't feel like I have any thing of importance to write. I thought I would let everyone know that I have a new career move I'm working on. I have been accepted to SWA for a Flight Attendant. I have a 3 week class in Dallas that I have to pass, lots of tests and memory work, which I haven't had to do that in 30 some years! I know that if this is what God would have me do he will give me what I need to succeed!! This will be a great job for me because of the benefits! We would be able to fly home for free to see the babies! Can't get any better than that! For right now I'm in what they call the "Pool". I'm a "Poolie"! I don't swim much any more but I love too! So I don't mind being in the "Pool"! I will try to do better at posting!

Having Fun In The Sun!

We have finally made it to Hawaii! Or if you talk like KB it's Hawaiiti! We are here celebrating our 32 years of wedded bliss! Or something like that. We came with my sister, and family friend. My sis lived here for a while in the 90's and so we have the
perfect tour guide!
The first picture is me and my DH on the beach at Kailua, we are staying across the street from the beach in a house we have rented. The next one is of us three girls waiting at the pancake place to get the best Banana Macadamia Nut Pancake ever tasted! It is pictured in the next picture. The last one is of my DH on the beach with his favorite hat on! We have been having a blast. It is a little hard getting use to the time difference, my body wakes up earlier than it is suppose to! I will put some more pictures on here later! I know you want to see them mom!

I'm Back!

I am excited about keeping up my blogsite, now that my grandbabies have a site that we can view them on! Well I should say their Moma has a site! I'm so proud of her because it will help us stay up on the latest pics! We have the web cam, but for some reason it is not working, couldn't be the operator I'm sure! Lots to be grateful for today! Will post more later!

God has blessed with another precious baby girl!

I have been busy this week! This Grana has a new little girl! She was named after my grandmother, which would be her great-great-grandmother,who by the way was a godly and beautiful woman. I have had our oldest grandson this week to help out and needless to say we have had some kind of fun! My daughter and I were taking him to eat at a mexican restaurant so he could have a grana burito,(I take a corn shell and butter it up real good and roll it! hey, he thinks it the greatest!) he didn't want me to have to cook! At one time he wanted to marry his aunt, my daughter, but now since it looks like she might be getting married he announced in the car that he just might have to marry his grana! How those little minds work amazes me! He also thinks he wants to live with me forever and forever! Amen!I usually am a very safe driver I have had quite a few years experience, but for some reason the other night I just flew right through a red light! My daughter started screaming so my grandson started screaming and it scared me so bad I started screaming! It was to late I had ran it and man I did a good job running it! I hope this next week will slow down a bit, however I think I am fooling myself because I will start moving! You know it's one of those kind of moves that you have 2 weeks to do and you think I'll move one room at a time so you can have everything where it is suppose to go and when you have finished your all ready to go, you have everything put up and you can sit and visit with all you family and friends that have helped you move, and even fix them something to eat as a thank you for helping! Wake me up!!! I must be dreaming! I can only hope!!~

Goals for 2007

I have some goals I want to work on for 2007 and there are at least 7 that I think are most important.

1) Love the Lord Jesus Christ and have a closer relationship with him
2) Lose weight and keep it off by eating healthy and changing my lifestyle
3) Be better at keeping in touch with family and friends
4) Get out of debt and stay on a budget and get ready for retirement
5) Learn how to use my camera and take better pictures of my sweet babies
6) Learn how to use my computer
7) Work on my scrapbooking and sorting my pictures

I would hope that I could keep working on these until I have them down! That is easier said than done! With God's help
I can do it!

What a weekend we had. It went so fast that I'm not sure I was even here. We had company visiting and I hope I was a good hostess. Sometimes I worry more about the food than the ones who are going to be eating it.
