My first Award...

Thank you Kathe for giving me an award... I was so surprised and I'm so thankful!
It took me a while to post it because it took me a while to figure out what I was supposed to do! Thank you Sharron for helping me!!

What was I thinking??????

hahaha... I've started a part time job! LOVE IT... but what was I thinking? I am now enrolled in a 3 hour class.. today... anyone that knows me knows how much I despise school.. LOL.. well, not really, but these days it does take more time for things to register. I sure hope they have a copy of MLS for dummies there!
Wish me luck friends.. I'm a nervous wreck!!!

On the road again..

just can't wait to get on the road again... or in this case.. on the road for the first time. Ever since Zeke was born I've wanted to paint him a little coupe car.. a couple of weeks ago I did... well, I started to but Rick decided he could take it apart and paint it much better.. so I let him.. pretty smart wasn't I?

After much grumbling on my part about the paint peeling off ... Rick finally got it pretty much as good as it would be... (do not ever ask the paint "expert" at walmart if Outside use means it will stick to plastic.. he will tell you it does.. I will tell you it won't!!!)

I'm a stickler for the little things so I had to make this "Zeke's ride"... meaning a lot of Carolina add-ons.. He sure looks like he is enjoying his car.

I think I may have stumbled on to something here.. maybe a pink and purple ride for Sophia? hmmmmmmmm....Yes I can see a cottage industry here as soon as I find the perfect paint.. and the used "unloved" coupe cars.. anyone have any to get rid of? LOL

You say tomato.. I say to-mahto...

this girl loves tomatoes.. I'm mean, she LOVES them.. It amazes me.. disgusts Rick! LOL.. he's not a tomato fan.. Maddie will pick them up and eat one like she's eating an apple. Here area few shots of her enjoying a very juicy, fresh from the vine tomato.

Birthday Boy...

I can't believe Zeke is already a year old.. where did the time go? I don't get to spend nearly enough time with him.. I feel like he doesn't really know his YaYa or vice versa .. that makes me sad.. but, when we are together, I try to make up the time.. he's such a joy! It amazes me each week to see what new thing he has mastered. I can see he's going to be a pro ball player... he loves balls and books... you can see his mind spinning when he's sitting in his favorite chair... trying to figure out what to do next. I think in the next few weeks Courtney and Spencer are going to see just what a little man he is as he's getting in to everything that catches his eye!

Flower Children...

I had hoped to get photos of all the grandkids in the sunflowers.. Zeke didn't stay long enough to check it out but I did get the girls.. Maddie loved it.. Sophia, being Sophia could have cared less. The bees are enjoying it although a beekeeper at the zoo told us not to plant sunflowers if we were expecting to harvest honey.. Odd.. since a beekeeping site sent me sunflower seeds for that reason.. and to help promote bees... anyway, bumble bees have been enjoying the flowers nonstop since the first one opened. I have shared the beautiful flowers with Courtney and Susie...I think they both had allergy attacks within 24 hours because of my generosity.. Susie put her flowers on the deck, Courtney kept her's in the house.. but, then again, I never mentioned the connection to her when she told me she wasn't feeling well the day after getting her bunch... I wisely left them in the field to enjoy from the comfort of my home!
