What's been goin' on!!!!

It's been a while since I've posted anything...we've been very very busy! I am watching little grandy kids two days a week and working my 30 hour weekends as well as homeschooling. The girls are a BIG help with the little ones! This picture was taken on Easter...Dylan goes to kindergarten but I did have him on Spring Break and it was just a JOY! Brody is now 3 months old and sooo skinny...oops...did I say skinny?? He's kind of chunky and so precious and smiley! Seraphina is 17 months old and so very precious! She's learning new things every day and one of my favorite things is to see her walk up to me and with the tiniest little voice, say, "hi." Melts my heart!!
My hubby installed these antique windows...two of them...about a year ago but I just wanted to share them with you! I love them!

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Our bedroom is fairly clean and neat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It has only taken 3 years to get things organized enough to share a picture with you! I just love our bed...we bought it at a good discount...I can't remember the manufacturer, for some reason, I keep thinking it is Lane but that doesn't sound right, either. We bought it at Direct Buy...by the way, I have my own opinions about Direct Buy...I'm SURE they wouldn't put ME on a commercial for them.....'nuff said.

My hubby installed the blinds in our bathroom two nights ago and I just love them! We had been having a "makeshift" curtain looped over a curtain rod and then I lined up pretty linen napkins to make a "valence" but I like this soooo much better! It was an expense that we didn't want to do but since we are considering selling our house, it seems like we need to invest a little bit of money to update it a bit.
My girlies and I are off to see a movie and maybe get something to eat...they have helped me soooo very much lately that it is time to just have a good time together!
Have a happy day!
Blessings to you all!


  1. Beth... your "grandy kids" are so adorable♥ I'm looking forward to having a few "grandy kids" of my own some day! And your bedroom is beautiful! I love your bed and the deep color of the walls is so restful. You have such a pretty house☺

  2. What a precious Easter picture of your grandy kids. I love you bed. I've always wanted a four poster bed so I could drape those pretty victorian curtains over it. Someday!!!

  3. Beth, your grandbabies are so cute! Nothing like grandbabies. I love your bed. I would love one just like it. Maybe someday. Winona

  4. AWWW...thanks ladies! I DO love our bed...it was the only thing new that we bought when we got married...everything else was mostly Roger's.
    I ADORE the grandkids!!!! (Their parents aren't too bad, either!) We're getting the latest model of grandsons in the late Spring! His daddy is a policeman and his Mommy is gorgeous and wonderful!! It will be so neat to have Brody and Liam grow up together! My son Aaron and my sister's son Ryan were just three weeks apart so that was fun!

  5. Loved all the pictures. Cute grandkids. Beautiful windows. (Can you take them to the new house with you? And by the way, what is happening with the new house idea?) Love the picture frames on your bedroom walls, and I'm on my way over right now to come relax in your bathtub.

    Don't worry; I'll bring my own towel. I'm a great tub guest. I know all the proper ettiquette. (I just can't spell it.)

  6. Missy...I asked about the windows and Roger said that we would most likely get different old windows if we ever are able to "downsize." I looked at a new neighborhood last week to see how much a new small ranch with vinyl siding would cost if we built one with a basement...it is near $170,000!!!!! That is a LOT of money in a subdivision with postage stamp size lots so I don't think that is an option.
    I'm not sure what we are going to do yet. We are asking for God to lead and hopefully we can get into a less expensive house with lower heating bills!! God is concerned about our welfare...I just need to trust HIM!
