Hey y'all!
Life has been busy so I haven't taken the time to blog!
Eric & Erin will be closing on their new house at the end of the month!
Nonna will be doing a lot of babysitting when they start moving!
Marty & I are adjusting to life without his Mom!
We are enjoying spending time together alone!
Amelia & I went to Fairmount today to surprise Poppy at work!
Erin was able to have a few hours for herself!
Tomorrow, I will be spending most of the day sorting coupons and planning shopping trips!
Hopefully, I can work in some time for menu planning too!
I need to get as much of my work caught up as possible so that I'll be ready for all that time Amelia & I will be playing together at the first of next month!
And speaking of work, that is what I must do!
Time to get off the laptop & get to work!
See ya soon!
As I leave you for today, I'll post another pic of Amelia's trip to Athens in July!

I have been working myself to death over the past two weeks since my
mother-in-law moved out!
But, I've just about gotten caught up with the basics!
Friday was Eric's birthday!
We babysat Amelia for Eric & Erin's date and then we had birthday cake when they got home!
Johnny & Pam came up from Athens to spend the weekend so, they were there for cake too!
Eric & Erin came over for a little while today!
I got to play with my angel!
Tomorrow, I'll be babysitting for a few hours!
Love spending time with my little doll!
Now, I think I shall go to bed!
I'm exhausted!
Good night all!

Our nest is officially empty as of July 14th!
Lamar's mom moved to her daughter's house!
We didn't try to stop her when she made this decision.
I really did need a break, after caring for her for 12 years!
I pray they will take care of her needs! She is in God's hands.
We can only pray that He will take care of her.
Now, I have a lot of cleaning, de-cluttering & organizing to do!
I'm already exhausted, but I feel like I've accomplished a lot in
these last 3 days!
Eric took Amelia to Athens over the weekend to a GA Bulldog
charity event!
I'm posting a pic of them with the "Hairy Dawg"!
The weekend before, he & Erin both went to Athens to visit her Aunt & Uncle.
Here is a pic from that trip.
Amelia is eating a fried dill pickle at Hershel Walker's
Well, I guess it is time to get back to work!
Hope you all are having a wonderful day!

Father's Day 2013

We had a great Father's Day celebration!
First, Marty & I went to the early service at church.
Then we had to stop by Costco for some things for his store.
After that, we came home & made banana pudding to take to Eric & Erin's house.
Marty mowed the grass while I finished the pudding.
Then we went to E&E's house for lunch.
The Dad's were, Marty, Curtis (Erin's dad), Shorty (Erin's grandfather) & Eric!
Also there were, Curtis' wife, Ann, Erin, Amelia, Ian (Erin's brother) & me.
Erin's grandmother passed away a few weeks ago.
She was 90.
Her grandfather was sad. They had been together for 71 years!
He is 91. He did enjoy playing with Amelia!
I know the 2nd pic is a little blurred, but it is so sweet!
Eric grilled burgers for lunch.
After lunch, we went out back.
Amelia played in her little pool.
She loves it!


We had a lovely day!
Yesterday I watched Amelia so that Erin could take care of some business!
That little angel is so much fun!

It's been a while!
Old age is slowing me down!
We have been spending as much time as possible
with our precious Amelia!
Here are her Easter pics!

And, here is a pic of her enjoying some time swinging!
I just love that little angel!
She has filled our hearts with joy!
She will be 1 on May 7th!
It is hard to believe how fast the year has gone by!
We are so thankful to our God for this little miracle!
Well, the Spring cleaning is under way!
I'm working on the pantry & will soon do the other kitchen cabinets!
My coupons are behind!
I need to get on that soon too!
Better get to work & off the computer!
See ya soon!

Amelia is crawling now!
Nonna is going to babysit today for Eric & Erin to have a date day!
Poppy will join me after he gets off work!

Amelia is absolutely amazing!
This is a photo Erin took of her yesterday!
 She started out on her play mat in the middle of the room! Erin didn't see how she got to the toy under the tripod! Maybe she is crawling or maybe she scooted over there!
Either way, I am grateful to our Awesome God for the progress she is making!
She truly is a miracle baby!

Amelia had her 9 month check up with the  pediatrician on Friday!
She weighs 13 1/2 lbs.
She is very close to crawling!
She gets up on her knees, but hasn't quite got the moving forward part yet!
She is really doing well!
And, she loves her Nonna!
We have facetime on days that I don't get to go see her!
Things are busy as usual here!
In addition to the usual routine, I'm planning a trip to Gatlinburg with my hubby
to celebrate our 35th Anniversary!
I'm so excited to get a break!

♪♫ ♪♫♪♫ It's a rainy day in Georgia!♪♫ ♪♫♪♫
And, we may have some flooding!
I hope my basement doesn't flood!
It is a busy day for me!
Laundry, housework, clipping & organizing coupons,
& trying to stay awake in this rainy weather!
We got up at 4 am!
I might need a power nap this afternoon!
Well, I guess I'd better get busy!
Have a fantabulous day!
And maybe we should try

Christmas 2012

I haven't talked about our Christmas yet!
I started off the new year talking about my personal goals!
So, now let me tell you about Christmas!
Sunday, Dec. 23rd., we went to church at our home church, Calvary Baptist in Smyrna!
Our pastor spoke on "The Value, Benefit & Joy of Joy!"
It was a very encouraging message on true joy.
Joy is not happiness!
Happiness is based on outer circumstances ( things that happen in life).
Joy is based on inner circumstance (invisible; a relationship with God).
On Christmas Eve, we had  our annual family Christmas party at our home!
This year, we had new family in attendance; Amelia of course, and Erin's aunt Pam & uncle Johnny!
One of my brothers & his family were not able to attend. We missed them!
Then on Christmas morning, we went to Eric & Erin's house for brunch & to see Amelia open presents!
She loved tearing the paper!
We had a lovely brunch with them & with Pam & Johnny.
It was so much fun to spend time with family & enjoy Amelia's first Christmas!
She also enjoyed touching the tree & looking at the lights!
We are amazed at what a miracle she is!
God has truly blessed us with this precious child!
She is doing so well!
We are thankful to God for this little miracle!
I hope all of my friends had a wonderful Christmas too!

Psalm 121:1-2
"I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth."

So far the year is starting off very productively! The laundry is started, the store's bookeeping for today is done, dinner is in the crockpot (Creamy Ham & Potato Soup), and the Christmas decorations are beginning to come down! I am thankful to God for giving me physical strength to do my work and wisdom to know when to rest my arthritic knees!
I'm not one to make resolutions, but I have a few personal goals in mind for the new year!
I want to be diligent in my morning quiet time!
My days run much smoother when I spend time with the Lord each morning!
I want to be more organized in my home & every aspect of my life!
I want to record in my journal daily!
I missed recording a lot of important life events over the last few years!
I want to learn more about blogging, so that I can begin to make money doing it!
I want to eat healthier & exercise regularly!
And I want to spend more time with my family!
Yesterday, I got to babysit Amelia for Eric & Erin to have a little date time!
That little miracle is so precious!
She is growing more & more each day!
And you know that I must post a pic!
