Halloween 2011

Happy Halloween!!!!

The grands LOVE to dress up..This year Dylan and Emma wanted to be a cowboy and a cowgirl.  Dylan is totally into the western thing.  He has been watching all the old John Wayne movies and reading anything he can get his hands on about the old west.. 

Emma made a really cute cowgirl... 
But little Addyson decided to go her own way..

She wanted to be Minnie Mouse..and that was just fine..

Bob went along over with me to get these pictures of the grands, but we did not dress up..   

How have you been?

Tell me.

Is this normal?

Is this normal to have a pear tree blooming in the fall?

We have been in a drought here in Oklahoma, but recently have had some rain..

Did this prompt this last HOORAH from the tree?

Tell me.

A present from a friend

Shortly after my grandmother passed away, I received a package in the mail from my friend Tracey who lives in Virginia...
She took the time to go back through the blog and put together this for me and had it framed.

What a sweet gift..

What a good friend..

Thank you..

It was just the other day...

After being unable to get into the woods due to surgery recovery,  I finally felt able to walk on the rough terrain last week...Of course it just wouldn't be a walk in the woods without Bob, now would it?

I thought we would go down to where the deer feeder and camera are so that I could inspect the tracks all the different critters leave there..We headed down... 
 Suddenly, without warning, we were both startled by a VERY loud snorting sound!!  This stopped Bob in his own tracks!!!

 He glanced back as if to say, "what in the world was that"?

 Of course that also prompted the "Mommy help me Im scared" look here..
 Bob...It was just a couple of deer eating corn.  I think we actually scared them even more than they scared you!!!
Are you sure?  That was really scarey to me!!!

Oh brother..

Bob and me

PS..Oklahoma Granny?  I tried to post to your blog but was unable..Seems a problem on my end?...I am back to work full time and wasnt able to meet on Friday!!

Lets all eat cake!

September was a month of birthdays for our family..

First was mine...

My DIL, Angela, made these cupcakes for me...

 She came over with the grand ones along with a couple of their little friends and celebrated my birthday with me...
 Just look at these cupcakes..
 Next birthday was my sons.  Since he is the worlds greatest Steeler fan, this cake seemed very appropriate...
 And boy was it delicious!  And plentiful!! 
 Next was the babys birthday...This is her personal cake.
 Along with matching cupcakes...
These,  plus the Steeler cake, all cleverly made by my neighbor and friend..She is starting her cake business and below is all the information you need should you want to place an order.  Please do!!!

 She manages to find time to do that plus take care of two little boys... This one just turned 1!!!  Seriously..How adorable is that face? 

And if that just wasn't enough of cake cuteness, another friend made this Barbie cake for Addy.. 

Well I'm on the mend and Ive been back at work for almost 3 weeks now since surgery..Everyday I feel a little better..

What have you been up to?

Tell me.
