wow the house is so

quiet now. no more squeals of delight at bath time. no more fun baby music coming from her baby einstein play center.

no more baby finger prints all over the windows.....

two of my very favorites in the world checking things out in the morning....

my little sweet pea went home to her mommy and daddy last night. she was here for five days tho and we enjoyed her so much. she is a good natured little girl and very busy. this gamma is having a good tired today and missing her little princess.can't wait until her next visit!!!

have a nice day everyone.

have you ever been so surprised

that you just don't know what to say except for the same thing over and over?? i had that last night when my friend twyla "just stopped by " to bring my birthday card late,so late, quoting her here by the way and apologizing all over the place. she wanted me to open my funny card and this is what i found. we are going to see celine dion monday night!!!!! all i could say was "are you kidding me??" and" oh my gosh" over and over again! so excited and surprised. unbelievable! i can hardly's a dream for both of us really, as we always wanted to got to las vegas to see her but,that never happened. i plan on making a tutu today so i have it ready for when my sweet pea comes on friday!
can't wait to have her here for a few days while her mom and dad are gone. grandpa volunteered to take care of her all by himself monday night so i can go see celine. pretty nice huh? he's probably looking forward to having her to himself for a while since i tend to monopolize her when she is around! lol! have a nice day!

meet bitty,she is so darn

cute! she is just like toto in the wizard of oz! she posed so nice for me. i wanted a photo of susie too but, she was just a bit more active than bitty! they belong to stephanie&jessica who hosted our little art group get together yesterday! such nice girls and they have a darling home too! i actually got more looking around and taking in all the great stuff instead of doing a better job on our little project. needless to say mine's a do-over! ;) love the chandelier in the bathroom. every girl should have one don't you think?

stephanie's studio was amazing. lots of goodies....
and this is sweet jessica with her self portrait she did for her art class. she is an amazing artist.

and of course the goodie counter. jessica baked pumpkin bars and they were soooo yummy!

it was a fun afternoon. thanks stephanie&jessica!

this is going to be a

hodge podge post. not much going on right now but, in a little over a week our little princess is going to be spending a few days with us. looking forward to that.... i received this magazine in the mail today. free,i might add and it looks kinda interesting. i can't wait to check it out.

after putting away the halloween decorations, i'm not sure what to put out as i don't have any thanksgiving decorations other than just the general fall items so i guess i'll just go with that and the everyday things i already have and call it good.before you know it it will be time to decorate for the christmas season.yikes!!

this little guy has such a hard life!!ha ha! wish i could just nap like that! :)

have a nice day!

sorry this is not

the best photo,the light is a bit wonky,but,you get the idea. my sweet pea in her costume! so cute,i wanted to take photos the other night,when they were here, but, it was too dark. so jim took this for me. love the way the old brick of our patio looks,with a "few" leaves on it.
the view over our fence is pretty....

the burning bush in front of our house. looks kinda like plastic in this light!

the oak tree out front is always the last to turn and the last one to let it's leaves fall,much to the chagrin of our neighbors but, what can you do? this is nebraska and the leaves do fall and of course,the wind blows!! ;)

the weather has been beautiful all weekend. enjoy your day!
