Golf

Jeffery said he wanted to "take up golf".......so perfect opportunity for Richard to have a day on the greens as well.  They have been out a time or two but Friday it was the range for practice.  Jase stayed with me and after a bit we hit the road.....Jase in the stroller and I was the motor.  We walked up to the golf course and found this.......



........of course by the time we got there this was Jase's opinion of the game of golf.....
but after the quick nap he was ready to play........or talk on my phone.........

all in all.........I think it was a good day........

Weekends are nice....

Weekends are always nice when you can have family......This past weekend was just that......

My youngest is having a HUGE birthday on the 26th.......and we celebrated just a little early so everyone could be together.  Pizza and football was requested.....but a little entertainment from Jase was included.

love those KALs

A new KAL (Knit ALong for those that don't know) is about to begin....I have my yarn and needles ready....just waiting for the first of the clues!

only 98 days to go.....

I know I am not ready.....wonder if anyone else is?

So many things have been happening since I last updated......some sad....others happy....but certainly all was 'just life'.

Our Jase has learned to crawl....and cut a couple of teeth...so he is now keeping Mom and Dad on their toes! and he seems to have gotten interested with the computer as well.....

I have been knitting....some say 24 hours a day but I know that I do take breaks. Seems 'test knitting' has really caught my attention. Not sure if it is the chance to do something new before it is "out there" or just a new experience....either way some wonderful patterns have passed through my yarn.

being a GramMa can be fun....

Things have been a bit down for us the last few weeks.....the Twins have gone to live with their Father and his Wife. We will miss them. I am so thankful for the things they taught my children while we were blessed with their care. We are all better because of them.

But.....since the Twins arrivived the Sea Bee and Angela had their hands full.....so full they missed the fun of fixing up a nursery for Jasen's arrival. Well.....this had to be fixed!! So the last few days while Jase took his Parents on his first vacation....I moved in and worked a little love.

Richard and I went over and between the two of us we arranged the things that the kids had gathered and had a ball....

I am 57........I am 57......

Somehow when you are young you never think that you will ever be 57....but it happens...I proud to say that I have finally got there!

Tuesday I drove into Austin and met with Nikki and Vicki for lunch .... we laughed....giggled...and discussed all that needed discussing.......so that was a little icing on my cake because I try and celebrate the whole month ...

Yesterday the Sea Bee, Angela and family invited Richard and I to their home for lunch/dinner and the Kid and his Alissa were to come later for my B'day and cake..........well.............seems some people can keep secrets around here........

because while sitting there holding babies (Nick in my lap....Nya using me as a brace for standing) in walked my Nancy, her hubby Bill and look who was right behind them........

neither let one thing slip the other day.....must have been hard...even when they told me bye..........

wasn't long and the Kid and Alissa showed (she took off work for her MIL-to-be!!) so all were present and what fun we had.....



....we held babies......ate ham, potato salad (thank you Nikki) green bean casserole (thank you Vicki) tossed salad and birthday cake..........a few had more cake than some.......but everyone I think enjoyed themselves..........who cares.....I did and it was my birthday!!!



I got gift cards..... set of the Hiya Hiya interchangeable and if that wasn't enough a case to keep them in and a case from my new 'gadget'......Richard gave me a MP3 player ......think I am too old??? I wanted it to hold pictures to carry with me.....has anyone noticed that no one has snapshots in their purses anymore???......well.....now I have a place to put some (has a larger screen so I don't need glasses to see the pictures) along with downloading books to listen to while knitting in the car or around.......and he got me silver ear buds with bling on the ends!!! I will be shiny.........

then there were the boys........my kids are famous for giving me ..........."interesting"........ya that's a good word......interesting gifts........well they haven't changed much.......

the Sea Bee gave me a pistol and the Kid the accessories.......when I opened the box I hadn't a clue what it was .....then the Sea Bee says......."It is big enough to knock something down but small enough to fit in your knitting bag"...........honest!! ask Vicki or Nikki.........

the day was full of surprises and fun and most of all baby kisses.........

.......almost forgot......when we came home.....this was in the drive.......

my fault really ......I use to take the boys with me when I did this to an Uncle I loved dearly......for several years he hadn't a clue who was doing it!!

Jasen???

Jasen doesn't have to do much of anything.........
















.... just look cute.....

not to forget Nick.....

video
Nick isn't quiet into the crawling as his sis......but he can make some noise...he just needs to learn to keep an eye on Niya
video
......and he does try the standing thing......just not sure what to do with it yet.......

a Niya sort of day.......

                            
Niya is crawling one handed all around now
                             ......and she seems to love following Hunker around......
 
She has also been pulling up on just about everything.....and if she doesn't think about it
well..........


......she thought about it........
