This weekend was the Hope Heritage Days and since Katressa & John only live 2 blocks away we slipped downtown numerous times. We decided that it would also be a good time to have another garage sale, and we done very well. We slipped downtown Friday night and listened to some great music and enjoyed looking at things and the girls got their faces painted. We went back again Sat. and the girls both got their faces painted like pink cheetahs, they looked adorable. I think I found out the REAL reason for them both getting cheetahs is because Olivia Marie was afraid of them... They were having a great time scaring her, isn't that just like BIG sisters..

We discovered that Olivia Marie definitley likes music. She was head banging to the Bettles Band...We had a great time at the festival, had lots of great food, got rid of LOTS of junk and now Granna is WORE OUT...Can't wait to crawl into bed.. Planning on attending the parade tomorrow....

Sending birthday wishes out to two of my favorite men... My wonderful Daddy (as I still call him) is celebrating 78 years of adventures today, and trust me some of those years were definitely adventures, and my precious grandson Matthew is turning 2 also on this day. I hope that I never forget that special day that he entered our lives, never thought that any feeling could surpass holding and meeting your own child, but I was wrong. Grandchildren are definitely great. Just want to let both of these guys know that I LOVE them so much and feel blessed that they are in my life. Happy Birthday Daddy & Matthew

My Special Little Ones

Just wanted to share a few more of the blessings in my life!!

Another First Time Event!!!!

Last weekend I was blessed with watching Matthew & Olivia Marie overnight Sat. and for part of Sunday. They were so good even though Matthew wasn't feeling the best, they played very well together.. I thought that it would be fun and really nothing to take them both to church with me. I never though it through..

I get them both ready and out to the car and buckled into their car seats and off we head to church.. I thought to myself this isn't so bad, so I look around to see how they are doing and Olivia Marie has somehow gotten her sweater off, both socks and was working on her headband.. I finally make it to church and decide to get Matthew out first beacause I knew that I had to almost redress Olivia. Well, Matthew decides that he want me to hold him and he starts to cry. I get Olivia back into shape and pick up Matthew, and then grab Olivia when I realize that I forgot to get the diaper bag from the front seat. I finally get all loaded up and into the church and it suddeny hit me like a ton of bricks that I was doing this alone, without my helper. I started crying and couldn't help myself. Randy Dunn was inside the door and quickly came to my rescue and helped me get into church.

Later while church is going on Matthew was playing with my keys that were hooked onto the diaper bad, and Randy Dunn slips up to me and says " Net your car alarm is going off", Matthew had hit the alarm button and unknown to me my horn was just a honkin...

Thanks to Mary Jane for watching Olivia Marie for me while I was watching Matthew. Between all of us it was a pretty good day.

Not sure when I will try that again but I'm sure I will and maybe be more together with it... I do love those grandkids....
