What A Wonderful Week!!

John always teased me that I didn't have a
"birthday" but rather a "birthweek".  I seem to always celebrate my St. Patrick's Day birthday for the whole week.  I really don't see anything wrong with that, do you?  LOL

Thank you for all of the birthday wishes yesterday.  I've had a whole week of fun.  On Monday, I drove to Pryor to visit my sister Rita and then meet up with a bunch of my classmates for a luncheon.  It was great seeing them again.

Thursday night, Tiff and I took the girls to see the Ballet Cinderella.  They did pretty well but we did have to leave a little earlier than planned.  They were all getting sleepy and could not understand why the dancers were not talking.

On Saturday. Adam and Tiff and the seven kids (Adam has two little boys) and Kim (Tiff's best friend and my other "granddaughter") took me out for Mexican food.  It was so good!

Adam took all of the little ones home and Tiff, Kim and I went to see "I Can Only Imagine".  If that is one of your favorite Christian songs, you really need to see this movie.  

The "spring" flowers are coming up like crazy.  

The trees are blooming out also.

I love how the Hostas just pop up out of the ground so suddenly.  You can look one day and they are not there and then the next day - BAM!!

I went to Oklahoma City on the 9th and got a good report and don't have to go back for six months.  I made that trip every Friday for six weeks so that was great news.  My eyesite has been wonderful ever since the day after when they took the bandages off.

Have some cute photos to share but am having trouble loading them on my computer.  Soon, I hope.

Enjoy the beautiful weather if you are having it and for those of you who aren't, I hope yours come really soon.

Spring - Maybe????

Yesterday, the three little girls were here and we talked about all of the buds on the tulip tree.

Look at what I woke up to this morning!!!

The tree is just loaded with gorgeous blooms.

God's beautiful little creations are just popping up everywhere in the yard.

I don't know if these are jonquils or daffodils but there are at least a dozen different varieties in my yard.  They are so cheerful.

Signs that Spring is definitely near.  And when we set our clocks ahead on Sunday, we will have an extra hour of daylight.  That does me so much good.  The sun really does affect my disposition.

Wedding Report:

I am still working on Tiff's bridal bouquet.  Will show you as soon as I finish it.  I still have 5 bridesmaid's bouquets, 5 corsages and 8 boutineers to do.  Plus the decor for 20 tables and all of the floral decor for the wedding.  So, it's keeping me busy but so much fun.

Am making (I hope) my final trip to OKC on Friday for checkup on my eye surgery.  I've had to go every Friday since surgery so will be glad to finish that up.

Enjoy all of the beautiful creations of Spring!!

Fun and Exciting Time

This young lady has been the inspiration for my life.  She has been in our home practically since she was born.  That was a glorious night.

When she was five, she came to live with us on a permanent basis.  She has been such a blessing.  She was outstanding in school achieving every dream she had.

She was captain of the ROTC drill corp which went to Nationals every year she was in school, she was chosen to go to Presidential Classroom to spend a week in Washington DC watching how the government worked, she got her degree and just this week, celebrated working with her doctor for five years.

She has done such an awesome job of raising these precious little girls.  They are all so well adjusted and thriving.

Tiffany is always right here if I need her for anything.  She has kept me going especially the last three and a half years.  Oh, how I love her.

And now, on to another stage of her life.  She is getting married next September - on John's birthday.  She is definitely having her dream wedding.  We have had so much fun shopping for her dress, the bridesmaid's dresses and all of the decor for the event.  It's been a very special time for me.

Wanted to share her "Save the Date" cards she just got.  Adam is indeed one of the most precious men I have ever met.  He adores her and the three little girls and they love him.  It's going to be  so much fun to watch them together as a family.

So, as we progress with the wedding process, I will keep you posted.  Right now, I am working on her bouquet.  It is made out of flowers and antique brooches.  Fun, fun, fun.

Enjoy and I just wanted her to know how much I love and admire her.

February Red

Hello all of my blogging friends.  Where does the time go?

I spent several days with my sister Jeannie who lives in Neosha, MO.  As usual, we shopped, ate and slept.  That seems to be our regular "sister schedule". 

I put up just a few red decorations for Valentines.

Above was a set of red hearts in greenery in an vintage sewing machine drawer. This is in my hall bathroom.

A cute little Valentine's garland.

My favorite wreath for Valentine month.  My mother would have loved this because she loved pink and pearls.

My favorite Valentine pillow.

Here's just a sample of red in my home.  I didn't think I had this much, but.....

So, guess I am in a way, decorated for February.

I had my eye surgery last Thursday and it was successful.  I've had to wear an eye protector all week but it will be worth it.  I go back to OKC on Friday for another check.  So glad it is over.

Now, to a big THANK YOU!!!

All of you know Kris from Junk Chic Cottage?  She is definitely one of the sweetest and most caring people I have met while blogging.

She sent me this precious gift after Bella passed away.  

It is a Willow Tree box with the carved top.  I am putting Bella's dog tags in it.  Kris did this when she lost her Cooper a while back.  Someone sent her the box and she definitely passed the sweet idea on.

Thank you so much Kris!!
