Grandbaby Items

My first grandbaby is due 5 weeks from yesterday, and I am not ready. I had so many projects and I am behind schedule. This is finished though. I bought the pre-smocked dress off ebay, and I did the smocking. I think it is so sweet. I have a pleater and am very capable of doing it all myself, but why. It is so much easier to buy already pleated and sewn togther. Cuts the time in half. I am supposed to be finishing the valance in the babies room today, but they did not do the measurements, so that project gets completed Saturday. Went to a friends early this morning before she went to work and had coffee. It was so nice. The weather is somewhat cool here, almost feels like fall is in the air.

Had our first pee wee football game Tuesday and it was great! I had forgotten how little boys think they are so tough. I really believe they play as if they were in the NFL. We won and yesterday my little one was in the paper making a tackle. Boy, I don't know who was the proudest, Daddy, Grandaddy, Big Brother or the little man himself. Lots of testosterone floating around here yesterday!!! Although Big Sister was the one who saw the picture first and started calling everyone!! One of the girls at works mom delivers papers and they brought me one to work so I could see it early instead of waiting til I got home.

Time Out Thursday!!!!!

This is on the wall in our office at work. Don't say I have ever seen it put better-----------

Never regret a day in your life.

Good days give you happiness,

Bad days give you experiences.

Both are essential to life, always continue the journey.

Happiness keeps you sweet.

Trials keep you strong.

Sorrow keeps you human.

Failure keeps you humble.

Success keeps you glowing

But, only GOD keeps you going.

I continue to ask for your prayers for my friend and her family. The surgery was not a success, as a matter of fact, the findings are terrible. The blockage was a large pancreatic tumor pressing on the bile duct. In trying to remove it, they ran into unexpected complications and a tremendous loss of blood which ended the removal process. She is resting but having a good amount of pain. They plan to release her home in 4-5 days. The time frame is uncertain. The doctor only said live each day from now on to the fullest you can. They are in shock, but at peace because they know this is in God's hands and it is His plan being fulfilled. Please ask for comfort for this kind and sweet lady and strength for her children. Ya'll take care now. Be happy, healthy, and safe. Hug your loved ones. Smile and laugh!! God bless ya'll!!!!


  1. Happy news of a first grandchild...your life is about to double with joy!

    Sympathy for your friend's condition.

  2. Your smocked gown is lovely. I smocked lots of my children's clothes when they were small. Now I am working on a smocked gown for myself. Loved your poem. Both my husband and I enjoyed it this morning during breakfast. Have a blessed day!
