A Bit about the house build slide

>Keith has been wanting to show all the progress on the house thus far.  The original slide show is much better. But this will suffice. F

For some weird reason it will not upload straight to blogger, and the way ‘they’ tell me ‘talk to them is useless.   I have a youtube account– but just found out the Post Office does not allow them to open it there.  So I just signed on to Photo Bucket– Just click the picture and it will send you to PhotoBucket then click the picture again.. It should work.
The house is coming along–there have been so many things that have happened also– blessings really, but some sure seemed like trials while we were enduring…
I will explain a bit more in next posting.. Maybe–
Because Wednesday post will be about my newest grandbaby…
Ash will be induced Wed. AM

Big Sister Princess Party


Tanah and Cheyanne both are princess fanatics. I am amazed with how very young kids are when they start obsessing with ?? now. My princess stage was around 1st grade– Not 2. But then even we (45 or so years old) just did not have the TV/movie influence — All the movies I saw when I was 1st grade plus, in the theater (late showing, because Mom and Dad never could get to the movies till the last showing about 20 minutes late) are now on DVD, being released from ‘the vault’ periodically. I am so excited to see the first 20 minutes of all of the oldies!!

For months Tanah’s phone conversation with us always consists of her having a princess birthday party soon. The problem is Tanah had a birthday this past July, so the party is quite awhile away. So in conversation, just before their trip to bring Evan home for his birthday, Tanah thought it was a good time to suggest a princess party for Evan… Well that would not work. But Papaw thought surely we could have a princess party AND celebrate Evans party some other way.. So Nonnie told the girls we would have a princess party, a big sister princess party, since Tanah just became one and Cheyanne would be soon. — It was a blast.

Ash let us use her house (mine is still on wheels and I can reach all sides when I stretch my arms out) I found a trunk of princess dresses at Sams, and Keith insisted on the box of 8 high heel shoes too.. We had pink princess cupcakes I found a tea set for our clear rasberry KoolAid, and of course Princess fruit snacks…

The girls oohed and ahhed at the dresses, dressed up without much issue, neither wanted the others ‘goods’ and then came to the table. The , 2 and 3 year olds, who squeel, run, fall and whine and ‘I want’ and pout pretty much 60% of their day,turned into the quietest most delicate, prim princesses — without a prompting one from Moms or Nonnies, they sat so daintily, poured their , tea and held out their pinkies– it was eerie!! But adorable.

God has blessed me so very much– What a joy to play with these little girls! And their moms… They are my best friends.
