Hello! I've missed the bloggy world while I was away having all kinds of granny fun. Now I am home, unpacked, and ready to recount my wonderful time with our oldest son and their two youngest cherubs!
I'm sorry that my photos are out of order. Please bear with me! I did not become best friends with Brad and April's chickens. I like their eggs (yum) but I did not like the chicken poop.
Aw! Busy little Plum likes ladybugs!
My precious bloggy friend Nana Go-Go sent me two sheep notebooks! Isn't she the sweetest? She knows how I love sheep. Thank you, sweet Scottish buddy!
While I was in Ft. Collins, Kelli's family was at the California beach! Doesn't it look like a lot of fun?
This is the cute little breakfast nook where Aria and Atticus ate their meals. Granny did lots of "lunches out" and they liked that!
We found some awesome ruby slippers!It was SO lovely to be with Brad, our first born son. He's a busy pastor of a little church and I'm so PROUD of him. I so enjoy his company!
Back to the California vacationers! The were with some of their best friends! Boys!
Sam and Plum liked the zoo in Denver! The bears! (Hopping around again, sorry!)
Aw! Gus! (that's what we like to call Atticus!)
One mishap! The sink became clogged. I did put some peels down the disposal. A nice plumber saved the day!
We went to the Happy Lucky tea shop! Brad LOVES tea!
And back at home, there was sunshine! James is on the move! SMILE!
The chickens produced a tiny egg. Can any of my chicken friends tell me why?
We went to church twice. The people there are so kind, so warm.
More fast food. I'm thankful that sweet April isn't picky about this kind of spoiling. She approves!
Sunday afternoon nap after church and before Brad's bagpipe band practice. My friend Gretchen's husband's funeral was the day before and Brad played Amazing Grace for him, out in the backyard with the chickens. I put it on Gretchen's Facebook page. I wept as Brad played.
Old Puglsey and I had some nice snuggles. He's a funny old pug.
It's so easy to take two little sweeties out to eat.
I am so thankful that April invited me to stay with Brad and the littles while she went to Washington, DC and New Jersey with her parents, taking the two older kids along. They celebrated her granny's 90th birthday. I liked being at their house, marveling at April's homekeeping skills, her tidy cupboards, her motivation charts for the kids (chores). I am so thankful for her, so thankful. It was a precious time for me to have long evening conversations with our son, to hear his dear heart in his voice, his desire to pray, love, and serve the people God has placed in his care. A mama cherishes opportunities to spoil and admire her children. I count the week I spent with him as one of the best time periods I've experienced so far. Yay!
I read blogs while I was away, just no comments because I'm slow with the iPad. I'm excited to greet you now!
Thank you for coming by and reading about my happy business! (SMOOCH!)
