Happy New Year!


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) 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 keep posted.

Take care and God bless....Robin

Christmas Gone...Wedding On

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We had a good was noisy but it was good. Hayden slept most of the time and most of that time was on me...I didn't mind. Colton enjoyed opening a present and then running off to open another. I think he liked the novelty candy/toy that was in his stocking the most. You pressed a button and it had like a fan that turned and blowed air and lights came on.
The more people you get in the house, especially opening presents there will be a little chaos but was still an enjoyable time. Present opening seemed like it took forever though. The kids were over for several hours. It's amazing that when they leave you can tell exactly how noisy it was because everything now is so quite.
Before Colton got ready to go we were taking pictures and he finally decided he was say cheese for a picture and actually pose. Here is the result of that cheese picture with both of my beautiful grandchildren below. I wonder how next years pose will be with 4 grandchildren? I can hardley wait.
Now that Christmas is over we can put ALL of our attention and focus on Tammy's wedding...after all it's only 9 days away and still it seems like so much to do.
Today the girls have their last dress fitting and should still be interesting since 2 are pregnant and one just had her baby a month ago.
Hopefully it all come together ....there really isn't any choice.
I'm hoping to post again before the wedding but if not I will do so afterwards...hopefully...I will have Colton that Sunday evening after the wedding until Friday evening.
Have a Wonderful New Year!

Sleep Over

Little Miss Hayden came over Saturday night to spend the night with her Grams. We had the most wonderful time....BUT....she definitely has her morning and night hours turned around.
This is her at 2 in the morning all wide awake and big eyed.
She had been up from 10:30 that evening until 4 in the morning...she didn't want to sleep...she wanted to eat or look we did as she pleased as much as I tried to get her to sleep... she is the Princess so she got her royal way.
She eats a lot...I guess she's trying to make up for how small she was at birth....she surely is growing.
All I know is that she's a sweetie pie.
Oh...and I did tell her mom and dad that she needs to sleep a little better through the night before she can have another Gram and Hayden sleep over. Not sure if that will hold true or not but we'll see.

The Hussle and Bussle of the Holidays

Hoping that your done with your holiday shopping or soon will be...I thought I was done or really close to it when I decided to sit down and wrap all I had gotten just to discover I was a lot more short than I had could I of over looked on of my children....I just couldn't understand it.

Usually by this time I'm all done with my shopping while those last minute shoppers are out searching for the perfect I spent my afternoon shopping. Now I'm close to being 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 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.

Happy Holidays!

Pregnancy News!

And it's NOT me!

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 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 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's a lot of fun...I do love the grand-babies.

So...that's my news of the week...Enjoy!

Snow in Houston

We had some snow in our area yesterday. We got snow for about 30 minutes and that was it...the North East side of Houston got anywhere from 1-3 inches they say. I know when watching the news last night it was still snowing and on the ground and on cars where here at my house it had stopped a few hours prior. Still it was kind of neat.
During the day it had been really cold. I was out doing some Christmas shopping and was all bundled up in coat and gloves. It was a nice it seemed a little more like Christmas time.
It also made shopping a little more fun and not such a chore.
Anything is possible!

Mr. Colton

Here is Mr. Colton all bundled up....we have had some cold weather lately. This picture was taken in my yard...I have some lighted deer and some of them their heads move back and forth...well, Colton is fascinated with that... all he keeps saying is deer turning...deer turning...over and over...The child like mind of a 2 year old.

Miss Hayden

This is Miss Hayden taken on December 8...3 weeks old...she is really starting to grow...she's so funny trying to lift herself up already...she's gonna be a go getter that's for sure.
