It's a time reflect on the past year and to look forward to the new.
I thank all of you that have visited my blog. It's been fun. I've enjoyed keeping you up on what's going on with me and the family...I hope you've enjoyed reading about it. Thank you for letting me share.
As this new year approaches I plan to have more updates on the beach house and I plan on spending more time there as well...telling you about Tammy's wedding (which happens in 3 days)...my trip to San Francisco in February...the arrival of 2 more grand-babies this summer ...what's new with Colton and Hayden and the rest of the family...so keep posted.
Take care and God bless....Robin

Usually by this time I'm all done with my shopping while those last minute shoppers are out searching for the perfect gift...well....today I spent my afternoon shopping. Now I'm close to being done...one quick run in the morning to the mall and I'm done. I know ...the mall...who wants to go to the mall the Friday before Christmas? I'm hoping to be there when they open, go into the store I need to go into, get what I need and get out before shoppers are searching for a place to park.
So...for those of you who have not yet finished your shopping...HURRY! and for those of you that have I TOAST you...you did good. Tomorrow I plan to be done shopping and the wrapping as well. I have plans for my friend and neighbor to join me on the porch for a holiday drink this weekend...feel free to join us as we unwind and prepare for the holiday.

Now that the cat is out of the bag per say I can officially announce that Jennifer and Paul are expecting their first child due July 2nd and Tammy and Kyle and expecting baby #2 June 25th...as you can see they are one week apart. Should be interesting.
We had held off at first saying anything as we were trying to get past the wedding and Jen wanted to wait to get past her first 3 months ...plus she didn't want to take away from Tammy's wedding day and activities. Anyway...regardless the reasons it matters no more...all I know is that this summer I will be a grandmother to 4 grand-babies.
CRAZY!!!! I just don't feel old enough to be a grandmother 4 times but I will say...it's a lot of fun...I do love the grand-babies.
So...that's my news of the week...Enjoy!

Then here's Santa with Tammy's family...
Tammy, Colton (with Santa AKA Josh) and Kyle
Colton was real excited when he saw Santa come into the house but after about a minute he was a little unsure about this guy called Santa that he wouldn't come and sit on his lap and this was about as good as it got. Still a good memory.
Jennifer and Paul with Santa.
Hayden's first visit with Santa
I'm starting to get into the holiday mood...it's been awhile since I've felt that way. I'm even decorating this year. Josh and his friend came over and put the lights on the house. Tomorrow I will decorate the porch and put my yard stuff out...that part I'll do....I know just how everything is suppose to go.
Hope your enjoying getting into the holiday spirit but don't forget the real meaning of this holiday season as we celebrate the birth of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Until next time.

Today I took day trip to San Antonio. My friend and neighbor and I took off for a craft show. It was nice big show with lots of items to choose from. Around here the shows just aren't any good anymore and they are really small...not worth the trip and the cost to get in. We had a good time shopping for gifts and decorations for the house.
After we were done we stopped at a Mexican restaurant on the way home. We got back home in enough time to chill for the evening before doing our nightly routines.
Hoping tomorrow I'll be in the mood to start the process of decorating for the holidays....BUT....I received a phone call tonight that this precious little girl by the name of Hayden wants her Grams to come over for a visit...so...I just may have to do that tomorrow instead.
I do need to start my decorating...I think I'm gonna have Colton Thanksgiving weekend while Tammy and Kyle go hunting so not sure how much of a help he'll be.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Take care....Robin

As in a earlier post you saw what happened to Albert (Stacy's husband)...well when we attended bull riding Sunday night The Border Patrol's Big Boss returned him to us.
A Big shout out to The Border Patrol!
After bull riding was over we headed back to The Casino at the Mandalay Bay (where we were staying) and decided to play a little.
J.B Mauney who is a bull rider and some other guys were playing craps. We decided to hang out at the table. Just so you'll know who J.B. is he's in the above picture with Stacy and in the picture below.
Anyway...we both learned to play craps...it was a lot of fun...plus we had a fun table. All I'm gonna say is we played Craps for like 6 hours and now I know why they call the game Craps...cause in the morning when you wake up (or whatever time it is when you wake up) you feel like CRAP!
Vegas is done...it's over...we're all home safely. We had a good time....some things we can talk about and some things we can't ...but it's all good. Can't wait to see what the next adventure holds.
Oh...and you think the story about Albert is that...a story...
do you really know it's a story???
