Seriously.... It's Fall????

I know it's Fall....
I know cause it's November.

I know it's Fall....
I know cause the leaves on my tree(s) are changing colors.

I know it's Fall....
I know cause Halloween has passed
and Thanksgiving is in 5 days.

By these things I know it's Fall....
then I ask...
Why is it so warm and humid outside!!!!

There...I shared my thought for the day....enjoy your fall day...though here it reminds me of the month of May or even June.

Disney On Ice

This past Sunday I took the grand-babies to see Disney On Ice.....something I had planned for the last couple of months.I bought tickets that were front row side center...I figured being that close up they would be occupied and not distracted by anyone around us.
It was a good call.
I knew Colton would be fine and figured Hayden would be as well but was a little unsure with Tayler and Liam but thought they would be fine because of the others.
They were good.
 During intermission...Jenn timed it just right....before intermission she went and got pizza for everyone (it was dinner time) so the kids were able to eat while there was a 15 minute break.
The grand-babies were very much catered too and they should be.
They ate, they laughed...they had fun.
These hats came with their cotton candy as they should have since cotton candy was $10 a bag
They all loved Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck
as well as Minnie and Goofy....can't wait for that Disney World trip.
Off to Neverland
Captain Hook....all the kids got swords with Peter Pan on it
Getting close to the were excited to see all the characters at once and loved the music as they danced.
Above Tayler and Liam and Hayden below....they loved their view
Colton and Liam
And Disney On Ice comes to an end...I left the house with $800 cash and I think I came home with $120...t-shirts...hats...swords (2 kinds)...lemonade in a souvenir cup..bottled animals....

I would do it all again to spend sometime with my kids and grand-babies and see their happy little faces.

A Whirlwind Never Ending

Wow....Life is crazy busy..I so need to find a balance.
Who would of thought at my age I would not have that down by now.

Weekend before last we did The SugarPlum market where we set up a booth and sold items from our store. It's a lot of work,especially when you have a store and your trying to get ready for the holidays and for your 1 year birthday of being in business....

But some how we pulled it off! and it was a success.

During that weekend my oldest grandson Colton turned's a belated shout out on this blog but I did call my baby to sing him the birthday song and the day after his birthday I took him out for a birthday lunch with his family. We went to Texas Roadhouse where they put him on a saddle and did a birthday shout out. Colton is shy and doesn't like people looking at him as you can see in this picture but he was a trooper.

Then Colton and I headed out on our own to a trip to Toys R Us so he could pick out his own birthday presents...something I think I might start doing when the kids get to be that age...we had a lot of fun.
Then we headed to Sweet Tooth
where we had ice cream and then he was able to pick out bags of different candies.
Sweet tooth is a ice cream candy love it.

We had a wonderful Colton and Muggy Day celebrating his special day.

Happy Birthday Colton,,,,Muggy Loves You!

Happy "Late" Halloween

Finally found my memory'd like to share some Halloween pictures of the Grand-babies

Break Time

I'm way behind on my blog posting but hoping to catch up today as I have decided to not go to the store since I have SOOOO much to do in my own home.

But I did want to share with you that back October 21st I took off for the weekend and headed to Lake Charles with Stacy, Albert, Fonda and Jim for some well needed R&R.

We got in Friday night...gambled a little and had a late dinner or maybe it was breakfast.
The next day we had lunch and Albert and Jim headed out for golf while us girls hung out at the lazy river with our special cups.

....after what was all day at the lazy river we cleaned up for dinner. After dinner we hit the casino where not long after it was time for me to hit the sack...after all I started my day pretty early with my special cup and I couldn't go anymore.

The next day I got what I wanted...a day in bed did feel good though....I did manage to get dressed around 4..met up with everyone where we had a few dinks, headed out to dinner and then I went back to the room for someTV time and more relaxing in the bed.

Just what I needed but now I think I need another relaxing moment...that may not be until Grandma's trip in Februay.
