The vacation was just what we all needed

Well we just got back from Florida and had a wonderful time.  All of the kids came home happy which is unusual since there always seems to be one that wasn’t happy about something.  This time, they all had a blast which made me have a blast too.

Nothing does a mothers heart good like knowing that her children were happy and had a good time.  Those children are my life, my world, my everything and I want so very much for them to have a happy childhood with lots of great memories.  It’s been hard to do that until Papa Charlie came into our lives so here’s to Papa Charlie!!  Thanks you so very much for helping make my children have a better childhood!!!

I’m feeling old for some reason

No I’m not about to tell you how old I am but I really think I need some eye cream. Hey it’s never too early to try and keep the wrinkles away. After all, you never know when you just might meet someone, fall in love and live happily ever after.  Yeah I know that’s a fairy tale and I sit on mine but it could happen…………one day………….maybe.  Better to play if safe than sorry ya know.

Not for the squeamish!






Is that not the funniest thing you have ever seen.  I just knew it was going to be something totally awful and yet I ended up laughing my rear off.  Hey, maybe she should try that!!!

My best friend is expecting her first baby

I am so excited for my best friend Allie.  She’s expecting her first child.  I know exactly what I’ll get her too.  I had a uppababy vista stroller for my youngest child and I absolutely loved it. They go from a newborn on up to a toddler and it sure made my life a lot easier since I had three other children too.  Another good thing about it is if she has more children, she will have it for them too.

We finally got some much needed rain!!

We had a very wet spring but just as quickly as it came, it went.  We haven’t had a decent rain in about 5 weeks.  My grass is turning brown and my little garden looks absolutely pitiful.  Well sometime last night, the bottom fell out as the old saying goes and I bet we got about a total of 3 inches of rain.  I know my garden and yard were happy to see that.  Now the only problem is going to keep the weeds out of my garden and my grass mowed.  Well I guess you can’t be happy with anything, huh?

Looks like Florida it is

We put all of the places each of us wants to go to for vacation and when I pulled one out, it was Florida.  So now I’m checking out Florida vacations to find the best deal on the destination we choose. I think we’re going to have to put where each of us wants to go in Florida in a hat and pull out a couple so we can decide what we want to do in Florida now.

Gotta love it

I remember seeing this on TV and it reminded me so much of my youngest son.  He used to give some evil looks.  This little one is just too darn cute.  I kept expecting his ice cream to fall off of the cone while he was doing this but that didn’t happen.  I hope you enjoy this as much as my children and I have.

Who needs a babysitter?

Dogs are amazing creatures.  I have always been a dog person and when I saw these pictures, my heart melted.  They are the perfect ‘Ahhhhhhhh’ pictures if you ask me.  What do you think?


And my favorite of all…………………because when I was a little girl, my aunt and uncle had a dog named Blackie that would let me do the same thing to him.  I loved that dog!!


Have A Great Day and remember that within the heart of every stray

Lies the singular desire to be loved!
