Babies here I come!!

I am getting ready to go stay with the babies! They are excited, I'm excited we're all excited!
The only one that really isn't too excited is PaPa Popcorn! He is glad I am going to see them,
but wishes he could! He loves him some grandbabies! I plan on doing some playing and loving
on the babies! I am bringing some movies for "Movie Night!" they love to eat popcorn and watch a movie at night. If you have a recommendation for a great kid's movie let me know! Just keep me in your prayers! I had three of my own when I was a lot younger and they kept me busy! This will be fun! Love me some babies!

Thankful Thursday... after midnight!

I forgot that today was "Thankful Thursday" until I got on tonight and was reading all my blogger friends! There are so many things for me to be thankful for! We don't have time for that! I hear you saying, awwwwwhh!
One thing I am thankful for is my grandbabies! You knew that was coming, huh? I got a call from them today, and my oh my can you say cute?!? My oldest wants me to tell his PaPa that he needs his help making a Pirate Ship! He wants me to let him know he will need lots of nails, Grana!
He asked me to be finding some bright material for the sails! He also needs me to help him find the costumes for all of us to be wearing as we are sailing on this ship! He will be parking it in his Aunt's lake at the place where she works, so we can sail back to his house from there!LOL! Can it get any cuter than that? We are amazed at how smart all of these little ones are! You know what they say! It has to be passed down!
Something else I have to be thankful for is the pool is getting smaller!! What I mean by that is that I am now 16 days away from being invited to training!! Right now the class is going to be starting in May graduating in June. It doesn't look like I will make that one and they aren't saying if there will be another one starting in July, yet! It looks like it is getting closer, finally
after almost a year of floating in the pool! If the Lord brings me to your mind please remember to pray for me about this. It is an amazing opportunity for a job, but it will be very hard on me to learn all this in such a short time! I am so excited about the benefits this will give to our family! Free flights to any where! Of course I will earn those too! More tomorrow! I hope!

I'm on a roll! I've posted two days in a row!

Life is so Ruff!!

I asked my man if he had seen my post that I had made today, and his response was, "No, I never check your blog because you don't ever post!" Sometimes the truth hurts! When I started this blog I did it to show off the babies and be a bragging grana! Nobody even knew I was here! Boy have things changed. I now have three people that read it daily! WOW! The pressure is on!
I wanted to get some ideas coming in for some "fun food" that I could fix for the babies when I go to stay with them, but no one has any! Poor babies! Papa John's here we come!
Congrats to Mrs. Troop! She won a great give away for leaving a comment! Big deal you say, do you know how many times I have left comments and not even an honorable mention! I think Mrs. Troop does a great job on her blog, one of those naturals!
Remember my Sophie girl? She is not so little any more, I hope I can get her picture posted!
Have a blessed day!

Fun Food for Kids!

I wanted to see if we could get some interest in posting foods that you have made or found that sounded good, for kids! I found this recipe and tried it out on my big kid and he loved it! I will do some things different when I make for my precious grandbabies!
Cornbread Hotdogs
2 pkg. cornbread mixes ( 8.5 oz. )
2 T. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. milk
1 c. grated cheese
9 hot dogs cut in small pieces

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Lightly grease muffin pans
Stir together mix and sugar
Whisk together eggs and milk
Fold liquids into dry ingredients
Add cheese into mixture and stir
until moist
Spoon into tins 2/3 full
Add hot dog pieces
Bake 14 - 18 minutes

I hope your little ones will enjoy these as well as my big one did!
He put mustard on his of course!
I only had the heart shaped pans and so that's why it's a heart shape!
