Been A Long Time

I know it has been a while since I have posted.  I still haven’t got the Christmas photos taken care of so I can post them.  Four of the five kids were here for Christmas with their families.  We had 15 stockings hanging from the mantle.  We went to my daughter’s house Christmas day where there was another 7 people because her in-laws came up and her brother-in-law flew in from New York.  Anyway more about this next time.

We had a ladies night out with my two daughters and Heather’s mother in law.  We went to a Paint Nite.  It was so much fun.  Check it out here https://www.paintnite.com/. I had never painted a picture in my life, but with a few mimosa’s under my belt I got started.

We all had a great time.  Has anybody else done this? Let me know how you liked it.

Christmas Craziness!

Are you going crazy trying to get ready for Christmas?  I know I am.  This will be the first year since the kids all left home that we are all going to be together, well except for the oldest.  That makes 4 children, 2 son in laws, 1 daughter in law, 2 grandsons, 6 granddaughters, my oldest daughter’s in laws and her brother in law and my oldest grandson’s girlfriend.  I believe that comes to 19.  What a wonderful Christmas we will have, but getting ready is the hard part.

Rough and Tumble

Saturday night I went to my first women’s roller derby.  It was a lot of fun but not as rough as I remember watching on TV when I was a kid.  We had free tickets because Midnight Sun Brewing brewed a beer for them and David helps with the tour there every Thursday night.  Anyway I hope you enjoy the photos.

The Last Few Days

I have been babysitting my twin granddaughters, Becca and Kate, for the last few days.  I love getting to do this.  They are 9 months old now.  They are totally different.  I love watching as they get their own personalities.  It is so wonderful to see the ways they are to be able to watch as they learn new things.  To see the little smiles on their faces just melts my heart, so yes I am going to show you more photos that I took of them.
