First of all on Friday I got to go to my grandson Jeffie's school where he was to recieve Citizen of the month. I was soo happy for him. He is a VERY shy, introverted little boy and he is just the sweetest little thing you could ever know (is my "grandmaness" showing? haha) How I love him. He didn't know he was receiving this as I am not sure they could have gotten him out the door that morning..."I would'nt EVER want to go up on that stage Grandma" he has told me more than one time, lol...You know, he is NOTHING like his daddy. For some reason ALL of my kids were super extroverted and didn't like it unless they were the center of attention, so Jeffie is a rarity to me....Anyway, here are a couple of pics of him getting his award. He was quite embarrassed for sure, and yet I think secretly pleased....
Is he just the cutest thing you ever saw??
Pretend you don't notice this pic is blurry...haha I had to be quick and Cody still turned his head. He isn't any less shy than his brother
Also I wanted to show you my cedar chest that belonged to my great grandmother that I recently had refinished by my brother. How I love how it came out.
I had the perfect corner in my bedroom where I put this. After
Christmas I am going to get a piece of a quilt she made as well and I am going to have it finished and drape it over one side of this chest to display. I am quite excited.
And then on Sat. I went to my oldest son's house to celebrate my grand daughter Lindsey's 10th birthday which is the day after Christmas. It is easier to celebrate a little early as everyone is kind of partied out otherwise, haha. Dec. 26th is a rough day to have a birthday...The girls all had a fun night and I was really glad I got to go...Here are some pics from that..
I GOT one of him this time, haha...Sweet little Cody
The girls all painted and decorated picture frames before we went to dinner at a 50's diner...Then we took a pic of them all while we were there and they put it in their frames and took them home as a keepsake...such a cute idea

My grand daughter Annabel...haven't had pic of her in a while...she is getting soo big, and she gets those braces off in 6 weeks. YAY!!

On Sunday evening we got to travel down to San Diego with a blogging friend, Kristi and her sweet family. My dil Larissa joined us and I was soo glad to let them all meet. I just knew Kristi & Larissa would click, and I was right. = ) We had dinner and then went to church to hear my son teach. What a wonderful time we had. I am soo glad you could come Kristi. Hopefully we can do it again soon. Your girls are soo sweet, and such little dolls.
Hopefully in the next day or so I will get around to posting some pictures of our home decked out for the first time for Christmas. Tomorrow I will spend the day with my mom and I am soo looking forward to that. She wants to do some baking, so we will see what we get done. This was something my daughter Mel and I did every year with her so I will miss her for sure. But I am glad I can still do this with my mom. Hope everyone is enjoying this season as much as I am....JOY TO THE WORLD!! Let earth receive her King...
