Ode to a Special Occasion

January 19, 2011

Last weekend was full of baby showers for daughter #3 and blessings abounded.  Oh my goodness!  Thought I would share photos of the first shower.  I don’t have the ones from the second one yet. So, instead of a game, we did a craft.  We decorated onesies and then, hung them on the wall.  That [...]

Making Memories

December 22, 2010

So, the other day, my daughters and grandchildren accompanied me to one of the malls in the area to enjoy the Christmas decorations and do a little ice skating.  One of my daughters lives in my town so we parked my car at a common parking area and road together to the mall to meet [...]


L is for Laughing All the Way

December 16, 2010

My grandson has discovered that he likes cooking and so his mom (my #2 daughter) has started including him in the cooking process.  Of course, this has to also include his little sister (Cat) because anything he does, she has to do as well. Recently, she was preparing Chicken Marsala and was explaining the ingredients [...]


Ode to Smoked Brisket and Slabs of Ribs

November 26, 2010

Of all our annual Thanksgiving traditions, I think my favorite is the smoked brisket and ribs that are lovingly prepared by my All Star, King of the BBQ husband, Golfer Pro (blog MO).  He has this big, bad ole smoker made out of a hot water heater (of course) out back.  Doesn’t everyone?  On Thanksgiving [...]


Ghosts of Halloween Past

November 1, 2010

I don’t have a child at home because mine are grown and I have to say that most of our Halloweens were spent at Western Night at the church…..or Harvest Festival….or whatever.  But, I thought I would share my son and daughter-in-law’s costumes this year. We are huge Survivor fans….the whole family.  Back before we [...]


The Many Faces of Spiderman

October 19, 2010

We call that the Popeye face.  Notice that Spiderman is eating a whole tomato so he will be stronger.  (Really, he is licking off the salt more than actually eating the tomato) Yes he is standing on the kitchen cabinet in his spider web and there he stayed off and on all evening….making silly faces [...]


A is for Ain’t it Grand—an Ode to Children—Mine

September 22, 2010

We are starting the alphabet again at Alphabet Thursday.  Rainbow Summer School is over!  That means fall is on the way in Texas.  So here is my post…Ain’t it Grand (I have a few kids and gkids with actual A names but….you will have to take my word on that one.) My third daughter is [...]


Blue Jeans

September 1, 2010

Since indigo is our color for this Alphabet Thursday Rainbow School…..and indigo is a hard one teacher….I am going with jeans.  These are dyed with indigo dye.  Also, my kids are coming in for the weekend….well all but one daughter and her family, who are going out of town.  So, I am thinking of them [...]


My Little Town

August 16, 2010

I was looking for a photo and came across a couple of files with photos of the town where I reside.  Though I can’t tell you where that is…teehee….I can show you pics, right?   (Of course, if you want to email me, I will tell you where it is.)
