I Truly Feel Blessed To Have So Many Friends!!!

WOW, look what my sweet friend passed on to me last week!!!  Not just 1 but 2 blog awards!!  Thank you so much Aaron from Scrapinlils Creative Side.  She is such a sweetie and she doesn't do just one thing, she does it all...  Go check out her bog and see what I mean, you won't be disappointed.   I feel a little bad about just now getting this posted , but it's been a wild and crazy weekend..  I have been playing Grandma most all weekend and just luvin' it...  Friday I spent all day with DD Amanda and sweet little Zach..  He turned 3 weeks old and weighs in at 9 lbs., and is 21 inches long....  Wow, talk about growing right before your eyes!!!  He was soooo sweet.....  And Grandma just couldn't hold him enough...  For the most part he's doing pretty good at night, just had a couple of really rough ones so far...  But he also has had some good ones...  So, all in all, I think they are going to keep him!!!!!! lol...
Saturday I did some much needed things around the house,  inside and out. 
And then Sunday from noon till around 8:30 PM I had the other little ones over...  DS Levi brought over Savannah and Colten, while DDIL went in to work to try and get caught up while it was quiet.  Savannah, being 5,  does very well, but little Colten, at 20 months, well, he's all boy and loves to climb on everything, and he thinks he's just a big as Savannah, so, poor baby has so many bumps and bruises on his little head it's not funny...  And I don't think the little guy ever walks, he's at a full run the whole time....  Anyway, I love being a Grandma and I looooove my little grand babies.. So if I have to put my scrapping on the back burner every now and then, so be it...  But I'm here now... So, again, I want to thank  Aaron for thinking of me.  Now I must pass this on to more of my blogging friends..  So in no particular order here goes:

Congrats on your new blog awards! You certainly earned them! Your weekend sounds delightful! Although I love scrapping and it's creative therapy, my grandbabies would come first with me too! I'm anxious to see some more pix of Zach, so hope you post some soon! Grandma ... ain't it wonderful!

Fern - so sweet of you to pass this one to me. I have been sort of MIA in blog land. My FIL was diagnosed a week ago with terminal cancer and most of my nights have been at the hospital. Even though I am divorced I remain in contact with my in laws. Sadly tonight he has taken a turn for the worse, now it is in God's hands. Hope to have time later to post this on my blog.
Thanks :) debbie
