I had the privilege of keeping these three kids over the weekend. Their parents went out of town (actually out of state) and with having no family close to them....I got to play grandma.
These kids are some of the sweetest children you could ever want to be around. Their parents have raised them very well, very respectful, very loving, and very thankful. I can't tell you how many times they told us thank you for keeping them this weekend. That is heart touching.
Jayden is four years old and his little prayers would bring tears to your eyes and a smile to your heart. Isabella is a little momma to her baby brothers. She is very doting and very loving.

Go see Kim and find out who else is contributing to the funny bone humor today!
Talk to you all soon, I have a very busy day, weekend and maybe even busy week next week..
depending on the rain!!! The photo shoots are starting to come in!!! (thank you Lord for this blessing!)
One day, when a seamstress was sewing while sitting close to a river, her thimble fell into the river. When she cried out, the Lord appeared and asked, 'My dear child, why are you crying?'
The seamstress replied that her thimble had fallen into the water and that she needed it to help her husband in making a living for their family.
The Lord dipped His hand into the water and pulled up a golden thimble, set with sapphires. 'Is this your thimble?' the Lord asked The seamstress replied, 'No.'
The Lord again dipped into the river. He held out a golden thimble, studded with rubies. 'Is this your thimble?' the Lord asked.. Again, the seamstress replied, 'No.'
The Lord reached down again and came up with a leather thimble. 'Is this your thimble ?' the Lord asked. The seamstress replied, 'Yes.' The Lord was pleased with the woman's honesty and gave her all three thimbles to keep, and the seamstress went home happy.
Some years later, the seamstress was walking with her husband along the riverbank, and her husband fell into the river and disappeared under the water. When she cried out, the Lord again appeared and asked her, 'Why are you crying?'
'Oh Lord, my husband has fallen into the river!' The Lord went down into the water and came up with George Clooney. 'Is this your husband?' the Lord asked.
'Yes,' cried the seamstress. The Lord was furious. 'You lied! That is an untruth!'
The seamstress replied, 'Oh, forgive me, my Lord. It is a misunderstanding. You see, if I had said 'no' to George Clooney, you would have come up with Brad Pitt. Then if I said 'no' to him, you would have come up with my husband. Had I then said 'yes,' you would have given me all three.
Lord, I'm not in the best of health and would not be able to take care of all three husbands, so THAT'S why I said 'yes' to George Clooney. And so the Lord let her keep him.
The moral of this story is: Whenever a woman lies, it's for a good and honorable reason, and in the best interest of others. That's our story, and we're sticking to it.

These two characters kept a close eye on us. He had my back.
And with these two on the loose good thing someone was watching
my back. You never can tell who you can trust!
The food was not all that good. Dad and Scott had Chicken Fried Steak and it was pretty good.
Mom and I had soup, she Mexican Taco soup and me, potato soup. I could not eat either soup. They were too spicy and I don't even like black pepper. Mom could not eat the Taco soup, I could not eat the potato soup so we traded. Oh gosh, her Taco soup was even worse. So I told them I could not eat it. Well leave it to Scott to eat it. But he could not eat the potato soup. Forget it, we just left (after paying of course!)and stopped at the Amish cafe down the road and bought $20.00 worth of homemade fudge....all kinds of fudge, lots and lots of wonderful, melt in your mouth, richer than rich, delicious fudge. Then we had to stop and McDonalds to get a diet coke...go figure. We had a really good day.
My parents are in their mid-70's so I find it very important to spend time with them when I can. I will treasure today. Sometimes my days can be difficult, sometimes mom and I are like water and oil. But today .....WONDERFUL.

I met Justin and his family last Dec when I did their
family Christmas cards.
They liked them enough to come back for Sr. Pics.
Pretty Water Lake is about 2 mile from my house as the road drives.
Probably about 1/2 mile as the crow flies. It is a cool spot.
Downtown Sapulpa in the alley.
Justin was willing to do just about anything we asked.
He even tried out the railroad tracks for me.
