I should be in bed getting rested up for my super-long work day tomorrow...but these pictures were too cute not to share! The girls came again tonight for a little while. It was still ridiculously hot so crazy grammy decided she could tackle two little girlies, a wacky water palm tree, a slip-n-slide, and a camera. The result --some of my favorite pictures yet.
Our beautiful summertime girl First trip down In the splash pool...with an appreciative audience Uh oh...looks like trouble...and nobody got hurt ;o) Sweet Ella LOVES water Time for a drink Fearless girl Great, wet, muddy, messy summer evening fun!
So I have been a VERY negligent blogger for the last month or so. Lots of things going on and I have let picture editing and blogging fall by the wayside. My biggest (perhaps only) blog fan/hubby has been bugging me to get some more pics up so here goes...
I found a new recipe for a chocolate buttercream icing that is yummy!!! And made some fun cupcake toppers for our "progressive" 4th of July party! The center of the toppers were a printable from Paper & Pigtails This is a graduation/going away card I made for a wonderful young man from our church who left for West Point a couple of weeks ago. I like the way it turned out. And one more graduation card that I was really pleased with. Always love butterflies :o) Since I am being totally random, here are some yard shots I like. This is the potting bench my hubby made for me a while back. Still love it :o) Pretty begonias on the table LOVE daisies and these are such a pretty color Last but not least is sweet little Annie dog who badly needed a visit to the groomer standing in the grass that needed to be mowed...both have since been accomplished. Now for the always too adorable grandgirls...
Ella the chair climber --she looks pretty proud of herself doesn't she? Now for some crock climbing...notice how we stay with the climbing theme :o)
Once again I love the "proud of my accomplishment" look on her sweet little face Moving on to our big girl... One day out of the blue Olivia came to me and said..."I need a cowgirl hat so I can say YeeHaw!!! So off grammy went to the basement/pit and found her daddy's old cowboy hat and boots! She LOVED them! Then the guest room turned into "The Cowgirl Campout Sleepover Party" While the cowgirl was resting we decided to put up Tom's old tent in the backyard. It was a huge hit! We had to have a popcorn snack And a little "cheese" Then a little clean up This face says JoY! Grandpa provided entertainment with some juggling...much to Olivia's enjoyment! They tossed a baseball back and forth and Olivia laughed till I thought she would fall off her chair!
Lastly...for now...for the one of you that has perservered to the end of this exciting picture marathon...Olivia ASKED ME TO TAKE HER PICTURE!!! That NEVER happens. So I HAD to oblige :o) Seems like a good place to end the picture marathon...Hopefully I'll see you again before August :o)
About me--hummmmmm... I have been married for 35 years to the most wonderful, godly man. It is truly my joy to be his wife. We have two awesome kids--both grown and married to pretty terrific spouses. I am the secretary at our church and handle the Women's ministry. The most exciting part of my life is being grandma to our beautiful, spunky grand kiddos Olivia Grace, Ella Faith, Jacob Thomas, and Harrison Andrew. It is so much fun to have little ones in our house from time to time--and a blessing to savor the quiet again when they go home! Being grammy continues to bring a special kind of joy to my life that I can't quite explain and wouldn't trade for anything in the world!
