"Someone" cheated.....

So today is Donut Day.....that is the day PopPa D, the Sea Bee and Jase meet at the local Donut Shop for morning coffee and ....you got it...donuts. 

If you remember I gave the boys matching shirts for Easter......they all promised to wear them when they met today.  There was even money mentioned!  If  you didn't show up in the shirt you had to pay the others $10 each......so I sent my camera along so Richard could have someone take the Trio's picture......

The story was "They were busy so only pictures at the actual Donut Shop were of the Sea Bee and Jase....

.....but that didn't stop the camera!!



......and  you might have noticed that "Someone" cheated
and covered his shirt just a tad.......

Wonderful Day!




Today has been a quiet celebration of Easter...

I had the morning to play in the kitchen baking and cooking for my family.  Richard came home just intime to do the dishes.........gotta love a man with good timing.   Later the Sea Bee, Angela and Jase came over and brought smiles.....

Jase had been on his 'egg  hunt' that morning with Mom and Dad.......Angela said that he just hadn't quiet got the hang of it......found a egg.....that's enough! The Basket that Angela found was just perfect for the 'boys'.....


 So instead of more hunting I had a bag of treats...........Angela got her favorite cookies....with PINK icing.......(yes,I am still thinkin' PINK really hard).......then Jase got into the bag......
there was a marshmellow chick on a stick......but it was tossed when he found .......

.....hurry MOM.........

KEYS!!!! 
(Hunker and Cricket didn't see what was so interesting)

a little more digging and we found a shirt.......not just any shirt.....but Sponge Bob .......and there were matching ones for Daddy and PopPa D!!!





Poppa D didn't seem as excited......and Daddy's was immediately put up "to wear on Donut Day"....


There was still just a little more in the bag......Cheetos!

After this we had dinner then more time to play! 
 ..................
Jase decided that the rugs needed to me moved..


which is more fun than you can imagine.......


Hope your Easter was just as fun.

Look who I saw today!

Most of you will remember "the Twins"......well......Angela had them over for a visit today......and I was invited to join......


They aren't the 'babies' I remember.....instead they are 'little people' with their own distinct personalities now....


Jase seemed to have fun.....and learning to share as well.


I am glad I got to visit with them....even if only for a short time....
I wasn't sure how it would feel to see them again......
....but I am happy I did.
I have seen that they are growing......loved......cared for.......and still happy .......
and that was more than enough for me.

Such a nice day....

And since it was such a 'lazy' day.....we went over to visit with the kids and Jase......(notice how the parents tend to fade once there is a Grandchild around?)  But rumor had it there was a 'new car' in the family!!!
Jeffery has this on his blog but it is just too cute not to share again......

And it seems someone has learned a new step or two and a few new words as well......

Don't you agree this is a great way to spend an afternoon?

Blessed

Have been thinking about how blessed I am.....

I met and married a wonderful man that lets me be myself
.....and he still loves me......

I am a Mom
...I have two wonderful boys that have turned in to men I am proud of...

I have two children that love someone
......and they love them back.....

I was gifted with 3 more when I married
..(hate the words 'Step-Mother')..
....and I am just as proud of them as if they were my own.....

I am a Mother-in-Law to wonderful young women
....and hope they think of me as their friend....
(I never want to be one of "those" type of MILs)

I have grandchildren
....some born from family genes....
....some gifts that came with my husband....
....each one has a special place in my heart....

I am a Great-GramMa......
...of two beautiful little girls...
(and not many can say that at 57)

I have friends
... I can pour my heart out to...
...with joy or sadness...
...and know they will always be there to listen...

I may think I have health issues
...but manage to get up and see the sun shinning every morning........

I may think I have money issues
....but manage to have what is needed...

I know that there are and will be ups and downs in my life..
...that feelings will be hurt..
...that arguments will happen.....
that it will seem there are more bumps on my life's road than I can handle...
....but someday I will look back at them and smile
 knowing I made it through each one......

I have decisions that need to be made each and every day...
...and I hope that I think of my many blessings before I decide what road I will takw with them......

As for today while the sun is shining and birds are singing outside my window?

I will be happy to sit
and
Count my Blessings
