Get Smart With Art








  Ginger Bread boys and girls, was the theme for the day, and these children did a great job!!!!!
This was pretty much the highlight of a very rough week.
 Not for me but for many people I care about...
I have not had a week of such bad news ,ever that I can remember...
So hopefully, that is all the bad news for this year,and we can move on through the holidays on a little better note....
I have been working on a fun holiday project and that is helping ...
It is back to work for me today, so that is going to keep me busy too!!!
 I am so Thankful that Amy has had good news ,and that Wy's blood pressure is down and bit ,so I have had some good news this week that I am very Thankful for ....
I do have many,many things for which to be Thankful... this week just threw me off the track a bit.....
Now onward and upward we go...
Happy Saturday to all,  and be careful out there....

Christmas Is Coming






It is the very first year we have ever had outdoor lights...
Thank You Amy for doing that for us.....
I am so thrilled to be able to be a part of the night lights in our new neighborhood however small....
The tree is now up , with the stocking Aidan made us last year, and even Bob Ross represented... Yeah!!!!
Color me a happy camper!!!!!
Okay, so my first baking attempt did not go as planned, hopefully I will get better at it, as the season goes along.....Please!!!!
I love Amy's new chicken, and so do the two girls, that are looking up, so adoringly at him....{ Great Front Porch Aim !!!!}
It is the earliest I have ever gotten this much finished,but it is back to work at the end of the week ,after many days off,so feeling the need to use the time wisely....
Now enough babble, on with the rest of this beautiful day...
Wishing all the best day !!!!

Craziest Year Yet




It has been one thing after another in this year of 2016..
I realize I have had the best life of anyone else I know and I thank god for taking such good care of me and my family for all these years....
Now What the heck is with 2016???????
I know I have no right to complain, But.....
For instance this is the first time in my 66 years that so many health issues have come up at once with my family and myself....W.T.F.
Hopefully we are all on the mend, so there's that at least....
and there is only a month and a bit left to this year...so there's that....
I have never before wish a time in my life to move on, but am definitely doing that this year...
 I know I am not being a very good sport but, Come On.....
 Here's to hoping that the next one will be
clear sailing again....

I was able to get one pre-paint ready for work next week.....
We had fun yesterday...
 I helped a co-worker do some face painting...
Thank You Alex for asking me to be a part of this fun evening!!!
It was non-stop straight through from 5-8 with no breaks, but everyone had so much fun...
So glad I got to be a part of this Friday night Fall Festival....
It has been a very busy time around here and that is a good thing...
 We do better when busy and the time moves so much faster..
Good and bad,that.....

November is here



                    Sara was a Ninja and Aidan was a Knight..For Halloween

Amy is recovering slowly, an infection has shown up on her right side that we are giving a second antibiotic and keeping a close eye on...
Her little monster is trying to help with his healing hugs medicine....
so nice to have Jenn and Aidan here to visit and help....
Halloween went well and was fun to watch a little one enjoy,even though he is far from home...
He and Sara had loads of fun and they each got a bucket of candy too....
Last night we celebrated Grandpa Wy's birthday..
Dinner was yummy and the chocolate cake was mini, but a big hit....
Grandpa Wy gets some birthday love....


                         Get Smart With Art

Yesterday was a busy day...
we also had the" Get Smart With Art" class and had a great time making
"Me And My Shadow"
Starting with an armature made with gold pipe cleaners ,
The children wrapped them in foil, taped them to a paper plate ,placed them in front of a small lamp and traced the shadow to color in...
The results are so cute, and so much fun to do....
Way to start a new month, busy, busy, busy....
My tail feathers are dragging a bit but, happy to have everyone together for a bit....
Being able to spend good times with family is the best.....
I wish everyone a very nice weekend....
