Weather update for the Fernley/Reno area: Lows in the teens, highs in the 40's, NO SNOW in the forecast through the 28th!! The ski resorts are even having to make their snow!! What's up with this?? If it's gonna be so cold, it oughta snow!! I was hoping we'd have snow on the ground when the grandkids come from California, but NO!!! Humph!

Hi Ladies,
It sounds as though everyone is busy as a bee!
CA - Eddie sounds like such a wonderful young man to help out with your sweet Mom - and I can't imagine how your heart aches at times for her.
Silly - I drove over to Lincoln, IL - about 12 miles from my house - had errands to run. As Shirt said, years back, she lived in Lincoln - which is so close to me - but the 3 hour drive isn't bad to her house now. Oh, and I DON"T BAKE - I visit bakeries. You wouldn't want to eat anything I've baked! I have, however, been to Lincoln, NE - passed through the city. Oh, and the idea of the little pillow boxes filled with bird seed is a beautiful tradition!!
Greenie, you've been busy between the school plays, musicals, babysitting - geez!!
Tater, hope you can get your Mom closer to you soon and hope all is well for you.
Lesley, hope your sweet DH is continuing on the mend.
Brat, I'm sure you've been busy with your kids, school, sports, Christmas musicals at school, shopping, decorating - whew - made me tired thinking about that time in my life - but I only had one son! Hope all is well for you and yours.
Jan and Wendy - hope you are ready for Santa.
Shirt, tell sweet Bella hi and hug the fur babies - and kitty too.
Pat - if you're checking the bus - hope you're well!
Okay, ladies, that's it for today. (Oh, went to early Mass this morning - and lit candles for everyone) Hugs all around, K.

Sistahs!!!! OMG!!! Yesterday we went to my Niece's engagement party that turned out to be the WEDDING!!!!! EVERYONE was surprised including the Bride's Mom and Dad. Long story but it went of perfectly.........after everyone got over the shock! My Sister-In-Law was absolutely blown away. I'll have to tell y'all more about the event later. Right now I'm on my way to an all girl Birthday luncheon for December Birthdays. Y'all have a great day and I'll try to check in during the week sometime. Thanks for letting me gush. This was so special to our family.

I loved Lincoln IL when I lived there. DH worked in Lincoln NE fro 4 wks, I took off work and went with him. I liked it there, too. Much bigger than Lincoln IL.

Made Bella some fingerless gloves. Hers are off white with leopard print flowers. She wore them to church today and had a compliment on them. She has not taken them off since she put them on. I made them for her last night.

Shirt who is Bella? Granddaughter?

Going to our friends house for a party tonight. I have two pecan pies in the oven to take. I'm getting tired of making pies! We are having dinner and it's always lovely.
We watch Survivor and the finale is tonight so I'll have to watch it when I get home.

For one of my friends I made one of the Santa boxes being made with the mini milk carton die. I love those boxes. They're so cute.

Everyone have a great week. I will just have to do a little touching up around my house. I am done with everything except making some santa boxes for small gifts for my daughters and grandkids.

Well Carroll Ann I wish you were here to have some pie. We could sit down with a cup of coffee or maybe you drink tea, have pecan pie and make cards!

Yes, Bella, is my 7 yr old grand-daughter. She sure knows how to work her grandma.

I like pecan pies, too. I would like a cuppa coffee with mine. Thanks.

7 year olds are so much fun, huh, Shirt? My DGS, Julian, is 7 and we have so much fun! We chat and chat and do so much together when I get to see him. He thrilled my heart the other day when he said to me, "Nanny, I want to wake up Christmas morning at your house, this year!" It has worked out that his dad, Justin, has had him for the past two years on Christmas morning and they have stayed at my house. It makes me so happy to hear Julian wants to spend it with us! Not sure what Julian's mama is gonna say, but Justin told me that this year is his weekend, AGAIN, and it just works out that it falls on Christmas morning! How cool is that!!!!!

Yes, they are. I have the best time when she is here and so does she. She says I am her silliest grandma. Imagine that.

That is so sweet that Julian wants to wake up at Nanny's house for Christmas. You know the time with you are special memories he will never forget. How lucky for Justin that his weekend has fallen on Christmas the last two years.

You sure have them all around the number 7. Wow, how do you remember all their ages? Sounds like it will be a really fun time.

Remembering their ages is not so hard, but putting them in order by age takes some thought!! LOL!

Hi Everybody!

It is so nice to have Tater up here on top with me. I have a card to put in that may just keep me up here.

Tater, I hope you get your mom situated. I am already loving the wedding trick.

Greenie, Greenie, Greenie! The grads are handsome and oh, so cute.

Shirt - Bubba says to tell everyone there. Wooofffff, Bark, Bark - he didn't tell me exactly what that means. Since you are totally immersed in the language, I'll be you know. Glad you are enjoying Bella.

CA - What a cute Kitty! Eddie sounds like he will do well in life. Keep up your strength and humor with your mom.

Silly - FEED ME!

Punk, or is that Nurse Punk - congrats on another GBaby! I got my roots and the works on Friday - that is a story...

Kathy! I JUST KNEW IT!!! You KNOW what I mean! These gals love to be tortured with secrets that shall be revealed later.

Jan - Happy to see you in and outta here.

Cult Mama - If you peek in - I'm always thinking of you. Peggy told me you went visiting. I just know you HAD to have fun.

Wendy - I'm glad your daughter got engaged. It sounds like a LONG one.

Hey All - I know there is a lot I did not cover. I have kept you in my prayers.

We had the 51 people here last week for the big soccer blow out. Spencer's Cinderella team took their whole division! FUN!

I have only mailed ONE Christmas card so far. I don't even have the family ones mailed! I stayed up til 2:00 AM to get the teacher stuff ready!

Yadda, yadda, yadda!

Okay, so Vanessa, my 8-yo, was sitting at the table about three weeks ago when she says, "Mom your driver's license is expired."

I laugh indulgently, "No it's not. What makes you think that, honey?"

Vanessa matter-a-factually - "It says, EXP 09.21.11."

In our state they just keep the same picture FOR EVER unless you're stupid and don't renew on line and then try to over two months later!

Okay, so I have been SO busy I haven't even had time to get my hair cut or colored since the end of August!

There was NO WAY I was going in with bad hair. I can't fix my face, but Kayla can fix my hair! What could I do, but to drive around real paranoid for three weeks until Kayla could fit me in?

So, I now have a new license with an older looking me with my bangs too short (my fault as who knows when I will have time to go back) but the color is GORGEOUS!

Oh, and now that I am 30 lbs. lighter than I was since the last picture - they didn't even ASK me my weight this time!

They did, however, charge me $10 bucks for being late. I told the guy that I knew there would be SOME type of punishment!

Brat you always give me a good laugh. You never fail me! So glad to see you on here. I misses you.

Shirt those dgd @ age 7 are just about the sweetest thing going. I have had such an enriched life since we had grandchildren. I loves my girl and she is 19 now. We are very close. Infact she called me today. She's anxious to get here Thursday. I'm anxious to see her too.

Greenie I will try to post one of my boxes tomorrow. My demo got the directions for this box somewhere. I have a web addy I think. I will look at it and if I do I'll post it. If you have that mini milk carton die you can make it. They are so cute. My friend loved it. I bought her a necklace and earrings and wrapped it in the box.

Kathy hope you are enjoying your week b4 the big day. I am. My house is all clean all my presents are wrapped. Now the rest of the week I just have to get the rest of my boxes made.

Lesley I am glad you get to spend some time with Julian. How fun. I will send you that recipe. It's easy. I have been wanting your email anyway and just haven't asked you for it.

Pat I have been missing you.

CA wow I didn't know you had so may grand babies. How fun.

Well I had to cook to take food to my sister in law. Her mother died and today was the funeral. She was a lovely lady and such a blessing in our church. On her 80th bd I took her to a tea house and she loved it. She will be sadly missed. She was a lovely Christian lady so it's much easier to let her go. We know she is with Jesus!

Wendy nice to see you on here.

Hey Darla!!! Merry Christmas to you and your family too, and blessings for the New Year!! Good to see you hopped a ride before the holiday so we could say HI!

CA, love that the kitties eat together and Pooky is such a gentleman! Do they always eat at "their" place at the table (guess that is so Pip won't eat their food - LOL)

Christmas cookies don't have any calories - RIGHT???

Okay Ladies - when I tell a funny story think on the black humor NOT the details. The weight thing was just in passing. I actually lost it without trying because the doctor said I HAD to cut out saturated fat if I wanted to see my kids graduate. We would ALL do ANYTHING for our kids, right!?! With a couple changes it was actually easy. I lost weight one other time easily when I had gestational diabetes and ate like a diabetic.

Moral of the story - if you want to lose weight or lower your cholesterol or lower your blood sugar - do it for your kids and grand kids and then you are properly motivated.

SMOOCHES!
