11/17/2012 …if we only …

Time is so fleeting and passes faster that seems possible.  When did this precious hand go from soo tiny to soo busy?  If we only knew how short this time was… if we only had enough patience to enjoy every moment, if we only…

10/12/2012 …so much more fun…

I am missing my grandbabies so much…..  not only are they 8,000 miles away

they are growing up so fast! Being a “Grammy” is so much more fun than being a “Mommy”.

7/18/2012 Enjoy the sleeping baby!

The most cherished time when you have a new baby is those  blissful moments when they are sleeping.  When a new baby comes into the family there are more things to do, more responsibilities, more stresses and less sleep.  Soon they will  be walking, talking and into everything.  My precious mother-in-law would say “They are stepping on your toes now but  soon they will be stepping on your heart”.  Freida was so right and wise.  Enjoy the sleeping baby! 

4/3/2012 Good clean fun!



What is the fascination with them? The don’t make noise, they don’t spin in circles… the only thing they do is float and fascinate and no one seems to mind the occasional watery pop.

Go to any dollar store and buy a bottle, it will keep anyone under 5 busy for hours or …at least 10 minutes.

We need more good clean fun!

2/19/2012 This baby is really cute…

This is a really cute baby that grows up to be a very odd looking animal.  We went to a wildlife park and with the help of a really good long lens got up close and personal …  I felt like I was right there with this baby moose.

1/17/ 2012 I can’t believe that Emily’s 7 years old.

This amazing little pink bundle of joy came into our lives on January 17, 2005.  Margaret, her other Grandmother and I were both there in California for the birth.  Raines was deployed and did not get home until about 10 days after.  I know everyone has a birth story but Callie tried for 3 days to have this child and we went back and forth to the hospital which was about 20 miles away and up a mountain with a winding road numerous times… anyway Emily was born… Nana was in the delivery room with Callie… BUT I was the one with the magic bracelet that said I could carry her to the nursery.  The most thrilling 25 feet I ever walked! Happy Birthday ,Emily Elizabeth Jackson.
