I am going to be a Grandma...

My oldest daughter, Abby, and her husband, Carl are going to have a baby! So, I am going to be a grandma for the first time. My husband and I are so excited. Abby is due on October 24, 2011. What a great time to have a baby, a little fall pumpkin!

I can't wait to help sew some of the bedding and curtains for the nursery. Busy days are ahead for me.

In other news, I am painting my oak woodwork with white paint. I put a chair rail in the dining room and added shadow box panels to the walls. The new look is so classic, I love it.

I have to go get busy!!!

Happy New Year!

Hope everyone is having a great start to 2010. Twenty ten, sounds so futuristic doesn't it?

We had the best holidays! It was so much fun spending time with family and friends!

Amber graduated in December and is now the new assistant softball coach at Northern Illinois University. Now we will be cheering for the Huskies!!! She is in Chula Vista, California for the USA team softball tryouts. She is sporting a sore leg/calf so I hope she is doing okay.

It is cold and snowy here. No work today because of the snow. I worked from home and did what I could. Tomorrow will be better, I hope!

Happy New Year!!!

Let the Decorating Begin...

Welcome to our home! We decorated the mantle and put up the family room Christmas Tree. Pretty!! How I love to decorate with Christmas music in the background. Bixby even sat still for the one picture of the fireplace! She is a big girl, almost 9 months! Happy Holidays!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving meal at my sister's home. She is the best cook evah!! My brother and his wife and son joined us and a good time was had by all.

My mom was not feeling well and left early. I called this morning and she is feeling much better. She is 89 and battles congestive heart failure. She went to the ER on Wednesday morning and she has bronchitis. Let's hope and pray that she doesn't end up in the hospital.

I hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving as much as I did. I am so thankful for many things but most of all my family!!

It's time to start Christmas shopping!!

The famous arch.
Our Cabo trip was wonderful! We stayed with the Beach's who were the perfect host and hostess. We met new friends and ate wonderful food. A good time was had by all.

We are sad to be back to the real world. Tim has a stomach bug and he's not feeling well.

Here are a few pics from our trip.
