Great Grandparents AGAIN!

Just found out that we are going to be great grandparents again and that this little miss is going to be a big sister! The new baby is due in July and it is just so exciting waiting on a new baby in the family.

Christmas Decorations

Here I am back as promised with pictures too. Debra and I have been pretty busy trying to make things festive. Our little family here in Yukon will be alone this year. The rest of the OKC clan will be going to Tenn. to spend Christmas with their grandbabies.

Our new aqua, lime green and brown tree in the kitchen. The picture doesn't do it justice. Its really pretty.

A new tree for the computer area.

Part of my snowman collection.

We never seem to remember from year to year how to do the mantle.

Little angels

Little cross tree

A new wreath I made yesterday to match the new tree. Its really pretty.

We still have the table to do, as well as, the bathroom. We'll get to that another day!

Back to Bloggin!

Due to an overwhelming response, I am going to try to blog again. I don't know how often, but I'll give it a shot. Lots of things happened during our fall, mainly family visits and football, sometimes this occurring at the same time.
We had a visit during the holidays from Tenn. and La. family. Not only did we celebrate Thanksgiving, but these three little ones had their first birthday here.

The holiday ended with most, if not all, of us getting a cold or stomach virus which played havoc with our get together.
We are now in the process of putting up our Christmas decorations and I promise to post pictures soon.

It has been such a terrible summer, what with the following:
  1. my nephew passed away on June 8 quite unexpectedly
  2. my brother, (nephew's father, my last living sibling) died on July 9th
  3. the hottest July anywhere in the US  was in OK.
  4. Heidi got sick a week or so ago, turned out to be a bladder infection
  5. I have had a continuing ear problem since early summer, finally went to the doctor yesterday
  6. I've had a sensitive tooth, dentist says I need a new crown and 2 fillings
We did have good news yesterday. One of our granddaughters, Chelsea, got engaged this week. She will graduate from college next spring and a wedding will be planned for about the same time or close.

Of course, all hasn't been bad, there was a beautiful wedding in June, in which we gained a new daughter and granddaughter.

 Hubs and I went to New Orleans for a few days after Rick's wedding.
Had a great time, just walking the French Quarter and eating good food.

We stayed at the Monteleone, and this is their famous Carousel bar and it was soooo nice.

          What is left of my lunch, Oysters Bienville, my favorite.

With August here, fall is coming soon. We have lots to look forward to in the next few weeks. Our triplet babies will be here on Friday, their first visit to Oklahoma, football is 3 weeks away and the OK philharmonic will be starting soon. This has got to mean cooler weather, can't wait!

Have a great rest of the week everyone!

Once again, time has slipped by and the month of July is here and gone. I am not a summertime person and with the heat wave we here in Oklahoma ( along with lots of the rest of the country) I have just sat around and complained and watched things burn up. Even the knockout roses are looking pitiful. We are under water rationing, so just have to resist watering. There is a burn ban here too, so that means no grilling outside, even in this heat, if we wanted to.

On the 9th of July, my brother passed away. He was the last of my generation, was 88 and been in poor health for quite some time. It was good to see some hardly ever seen family members, even if for such a sad occasion.
 Maybe I will get more involved in blogging when fall comes. In the meantime, hope you enjoy the rest of the summer.

What's happnin!!

Well, as you know, its been awhile since I've been here. Life, I guess,  just got in the way, as it sometimes seems to do.

Yes, I know I haven't written here since, I can't believe it, mid-May. Its not that I haven't thought about it, I have. I some days wonder how you do it. People like BJ who posts daily and sometimes more, with great pictures in each. And, people like the Pioneer Woman, and McMama with all those wee ones, wow!  It really makes me feel inadequate.

I have continued to read my blog pals, I just haven't followed suit with writing and pictures. No excuse, I have a new camera and am finally learning its ins and outs. I don't want to turn this into a rant, but one thing turns me off and I click off and go to a new blog when there are multiple shots of the same table setting or piece of cake or "whatever", over and over and over, thanks friends, but I got it with the first shot.

And, its not that I haven't had things to write about, a wedding, a funeral, getting to see out triplet babies, a trip to New Orleans, etc. I guess it boils down to the fact  that I'd rather read what you are up to, than telling you about our lives.

This is one thing that has occupied my time:

I bought this last month and began to quilt, something I have long wanted to do. I'd love to get all my kids and grandkids a quilt made, however, if done right, it is time consuming. So far, this is one that I have finished completely and I must say, I'm proud of.

Maybe, I will get inspired and write you about things transpired. In the meantime, thank you so much for sticking with me, and your continuing support and friendship means the world to me.

 Until we meet again
