.....T. toys,toys,toys, it looks like a toybox threw up in my house. LOL. there's toys in places that I didn't know toys would fit! (the VCR for example)LOL. I had forgotten how many toys it takes to make a baby happy. With a 30 second attention span, it takes alot.

....I. inquisitive. ie: gee, i wonder what's behind the doggies eyelids while he's sleeping? gee, I wonder what's behind his lips while doggie is sleeping? gee, I wonder what's inside doggies ears while he's sleeping? let's see, maybe I can tickle inside doggies ears while he's sleeping. Let's see, can I count how many teeth doggy has while he's sleeping?

....R. run. ie: how many times can I run around the doggy before he jumps up to chase me? How fast can i run from gramma as soon as she takes my diaper off for bath? (maybe grampa will save me)

....E. entertainment. This little girl has provided me with endless hours of entertainment. It is just pure joy watching all the fun new things she discovers. It's really funny to watch her shreik with joy and greet every male that walks through the door with a very loud "DAADDDEEEEEEEEE" LOL! grampa, great pappa, uncles, doesn't matter, they're all Daddddeeeeeeeee. LOLOL.

....D. delighted. How I feel about watching my grand daughter for the week.

now, put it all together and it spells how I am after just 2 days. and I only have 3 more to go! LOL.......

thank goodness for disney movies. she loves 'em and it gives me about 10 minutes of peace. She'll actually sit for 10 minutes to watch some of it.

I'm partied out

3 parties in one weekend. Whew! I'm pooped. I've been cleaning and cooking for a week. Friday the kids came in from out of town. Saturday was hubby's 60th birthday. He didn't want a party. He just wanted a small backyard BBQ with our kids. ....riiight..... Soon it was, "honey, did you invite @#%#?". two days later, "honey, did you invite %#$#^?" and it continued until I had 30 people coming. now, I have a tiny house so we had 3 canopies set up in the back yard. The day started with a fun surprise for hubby, he went out to walk the dog at 6am and was greeted with this:

he was quite tickled. He loves deer. We had to take all kinds of pictures of the deer and him with the deer. it was too funny. Everyone showed up for the party and we had a blast. Of course, right in the middle of the party we got hit with a fast but furious rain storm. Everyone dove into the house except me. I was at the grill cooking so I got soaked to my undies. I didn't mind thought because it was one of those really warm refreshing summer rains. It stopped after about 15 minutes so everyone came back out, we dried off all the furniture and went right back to having fun. It was a wonderful relaxing day. After everyone had left and I had the mess all cleaned up I got to work making a cake for the next day.

The next day I went to a 'Hitty Goes to Las Vegas Party'. I have my little grand daughter for the week so she went too. We both had a really fun time. She's only 18 months but very well trained and socialized so she was just as pleasant as could be. That was with 10 wonderful ladies and we shared party favors and exchanged a gift for Hitty.

Grand daughter and I left that party at 5 to run home, pick up Grampa, grandson, and a cake and go to the next party. That was a birthday party for my mother. I made her favorite cake-a made from scratch coconut cake. My dad was put in charge of getting one candle (a number 6-I already had one number 6 so we just needed the second one) and he got the ice cream. We all had a good time (a much smaller gathering of just 20-LOL!). Got home, gave baby a bath put her down and collapsed! LOL.

Mea Culpa and the missing camera

Mea Culpa Mea Culpa Mea Culpa, this goes to my BFF for being so slack and not updating my blog. I've had another month of insanity so this went by the wayside. She (ever so politely) pointed out my slackness (and then threatened to remove me from her favorites! LOL) GASP!!! I could NEVER let that happen so here I am.


Now, the missing camera. Day 5. It has got to be in my house somewhere. I saw it last weekend. Could my feeble mind remember where? no. was it in the case where it should be? yes. why is it so hard to find a black camera case with a pink camera? because it is. It was put away. it's that simple. I put it away. why? because that's what you're supposed to do. No. you leave it out so you trip over it or move it every time you want to do something. that way you can find it.
This has distinct shades of Gramma written all over it. She used to put stuff away 'for safe keeping' only to not find it for YEARS. LOL. OMG I'm turning into my grandmother.....
