I'm Back From Idaho

It was a jammed packed visit
 to Idaho this time!
I have a traveling diary that I keep in my car,
 that I record all the different "pit-stops" 
along the way.
I have driven to Idaho 13 times
 (flown twice) 
in the last two years!
To help me remember each trip,
 I name each visit.
This trip is called Harvest Festival

But there was so much more going on.

Above is a series of pictures.
Lulu was pretending to put make-up on Ila May.
The bottom set is Levi teaching 
Silas how to wrestle.
These siblings love each other soooo much!

Lulu and I had our annual Tea Party.
This china set stays at my home but travels over
once in a while, making the occasion very special.

I asked these two to strike a pose
 and this is what they did.

 Selfie with Silas
By the way he just started walking!
 He is doing so well, since his open heart surgery,
 last May

The Harvest Festival was the reason  excuse
to travel to Idaho this time.
Their church holds this annual event.
Pie contest, relay races, horse rides,
 bow and arrows shooting,
hay rides, caramel apples, cider,
 the list goes on and on!

I could of inundated this post with pictures
 but I held back with just a few.

Lulu and Levi entered all the events
This was the Three-legged Race.
They were on a team that had all ages!

They had so much fun and they did very well.

I was on the side lines cheering them on,
 along with Silas and Ila May.
There were so many kids.
I'd look down and see someone new who had joined us.
It was a great event for all the kids and parents.

This is the Grandma Picture!

Before I Go...

I'm hitting the road and going over to visit  
our grand-kids, again!!

Before I go, 
I wanted to share with you some fun, pretty and
cute pictures.

 Tom and I went to a High School football game.
It was the Cancer Awareness game.
The top picture shows all the students
 in the stands wearing their pink.
Theses Cheerleaders were so cute
 in their pink tutu's.

 We worked in our garden.
I stopped to "smell the roses".
The large picture is the bench that is next to our
Little Free Library

This is how I found Lucy this morning.
She's catching up on her beauty sleep,
in our bed!

Now, I'm off to get hugs and kisses!

Trey Day

How much fun can you have?

As many of you know, I take care of Trey on Tuesdays.
Trey is the fourth of the 
five grandchildren we have.
Trey is our son's, son.
Trey turned two the end of August.

About two weeks ago when
 I was taking care of him, out of the BLUE,
he kept saying, "Ommie!"
Being two years old, the verbal skills are just coming into use.
I had no idea what he was talking about.
But the word was very clear, Ommie.
Over and over, he kept saying it.

He was calling me!
He had just given me my nick name.
(I hoping it would happen.)
 Just like when Lulu gave me a
 nick name,
  Grammie Goo

It's so cute when a child gives you an endearing name.
You just never know what it will be.
I am thrilled to be known as
Grammie Goo and now, Ommie!


"He gives strength to the weary, And to him who lacks might He increases power. Though youths grow weary and tired, And vigorous young men stumble badly, Yet those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like ealges,They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary."

Isaiah 40:29-31

"Suzie" Has Been Busy

Suzie and I have been in super mode.
Suzie  is my sewing machine)

I came across this great idea on how to make pillowcases.
Super easy and really cute!

To help our grandchildren 
to have sweet dreams 
during the Christmas season, 
each one gets their very own.
For the girls, I added a little frill.

What a great way to be close to them, 
even when I can't.

You don't need to be an expert seamstress to sew these pillowcases.
In fact, it's only 3 straight sewing seams,
If you start now, you can make one of these cuties for your entire family.

They really are that easy!

They don't even have 
to be Christmas themes.

They turned out so cute!
I can't stop making them.

I'm going to make some everyday
 pillowcases for our bed.

That is, when I'm through
making more Christmas presents!


I call on the Lord in my distress and he answers me.

Psalms 120:1
