words to live by.......

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!!"

Another hump day!

Gosh, it's hard to believe that it already the middle of the week!  They say time flys when you having fun.  I must be have one hell of a time, darn I wish I would have told myself......lol!!

My weekend started by Duke keeping an eye on me, you know just in case I dropped some of the goodies I was preparing for company.  Well, Daisy she could have cared less, she was was to busy napping.  Saturday we had family out for bar-b-que.  It was really hot, so the MEN stayed inside and us LADIES sat outside and gabbed.  Now that is what I call a good time.  lol  I love when we can talk about all the sweet things we love about our "better" halves!! 

My grandson Jake was having such a good time he could have care less if his sparkler was lite or not.  He is such a character he keeps me in stitches.  His mommy had just put his dry clothes on and he decided he was going to splash the dogs.  He was told not to get back in the pool, and he didn't.  But he also didn't stay dry.  Guess he will going home "naked"!!  Oh to be a 2 year old, not knowing any better and really not caring either!  Life is so simple at that age, God love my babies.

Grandson Garrett, granddaughter Hailey and Jake, making faces, lets see the faces they make when MawMaw gives them all some paper towels and Windex!  Yeah, like that is going to happen.  They grow up so fast I really don't care how many times the door has to be clean, there will come a day when I wonder where my smashed little faces and little "paw" prints went!  Looking at my grandkids always brings back the memories of my own kids, gosh I never thought they would give me such wonderful gifts. (Mainly because I didn't know if they would make it out of childhood without me killing them first)  How come we let our grandkids get away with the stuff we would have spanked our kids for, funny isn't it.

This was taken about 1996 and I am proud to say all of my kids have grown into wonderful adults!  I look at this picture and I was wondering what the heck I was think about putting gold socks on my daughter Sami!  Guess I was lucky to get her in a dress, lol.  Back then I made most of my girls and my clothes.  Can you believe with all the sewing I did, not one of my girls followed in my foot steps.  My youngest, Madi she will make pillows and can whip you up a mean pair a jammie pants, but that's about it!

Ashley holding Maggie Jo, Hayden and Belle

This is Ashley (my bff Bonnie's daughter) holding all the babies born this year.  Maggie Jo and Hayden share the same birthday, Hayden is 10 hours older!  Bonnie and I have already started planning their wedding (25 years from now!!)  Belle is exactly 8 weeks older than the other two.  Now that's a hand, err lapful, 3 babies on one lap!

Well all in all my holiday weekend was pretty quite, and I actually like it like that!  So I am going to leave you with:

Sunset the 4th of July.
