About Me

My photo
I am a person who loves life and loves capturing it in pictures and recording it in many ways. I have been happily married for over 40 years to my wonderful husband Mike. We have raised 4 daughters, were foster parents for 11 years and are now raising 2 of our grandchildren. They are the love of our lives and the light in our eyes. At this time in our lives, we would expect to be planning for retirement, but instead we are planning for the future of these children. Starting over so to speak. At the ripe old age of 50, I found myself as a mom of a pre-schooler again so it's the second time around for us, thus my title. We attend church and teach Sunday School. Life is never dull, as you can imagine. Enjoy the pieces of our lives and allow this grandmother some bragging rights occasionally, ok very often.

Weekend Hi-Lights

I had the most amazing weekend. We had Owen and Ellis for the weekend. I love it when they come. We have such a great time. Ellis is riding his little bike he got for Christmas and he is so proud of himself. They LOVE to help Papa with all of his many projects. We rented "Mr. Popper's Penguins" and watched it last night. We all LOVED it. I made these amazing little miniature birthday cakes. Aren't they precious?


 


I got the idea from Pinterest. You just take 2 oreo cookies and add frosting in between them. Then you frost the sides and tops. Then you melt 1/2 cup of frosting in the microwave and drizzle over the top and add sprinkles. I think they were a hit. I had an ulterior motive though, they were a trial run for McKane's birthday party later this month. I thought they might replace cupcakes but the jury is still out.

We went to church this morning and taught our class of 3 - 5 year olds. Last week we had 3 and this week we had 6. PTL! We brought them play dough so they think we are the best!

But the biggest hi-light of my weekend was completing THIS......



project at a painting workshop this afternoon. I didn't realize how much I missed painting. I had the best time. It's going in my master bath and I LOVE how it turned out. AND, when I walked in, there was a friend from church so that made it even more fun!

A couple of other hi-lights in no particular order...


Amy sent me a BUNCH of awesome pictures of the boys like this...



Aren't they handsome??

My Mom sent me a bunch of goodies I can use for Scrapbook Club. (Thanks mom). Ok, I have to go find a hammer and a level.

What were some hi-lights from your weekend??
