Play day

Piper came to spend the day while her parents went to Ikea.

She jabbers all the time and says several words.

Her favorite word OUTSIDE and then being taken outside to play.
 Walking up the hill.  Isn't she too little for this?
 Riding in Olivia's little car. That Cabbage Patch Dolly was her mommy's.

A 2 1/2 hour nap.

Another Southern Snow Day

2 weeks ago it snowed and I was stuck in traffic with hubby for over 4 hours. We were in Chattanooga and it took us over 3 hours to go 2 miles. So I passed on a trip to Chattanoogga today. The roads are better today because it is warmer. Looks like it is supposed to bring ice later today. I hope Atlanta roads will be better than 2 weeks ago.

And no we don't have snow measured in feet. But this one is a wet snow that stuck to the trees. So I was happy sitting here eating breakfast and watching the birds at the bird feeders and reading issues of some of my favorite magazines.

Now to get off here and do some sewing on a quilt for the little one.

Yes it is cold here, too.

I have to admit the cold isn't my favorite time of year.
If we could just  have a tiny bit of snow to look at I might like it better.
But it keeps missing us. 
So I sit here and look at the bare trees and dreary skies until a flash or red catches my eye.
Watching the birds at the feeders is one of my favorite parts of winter.
Hubby had dr. appointments the other day. 
In between we met our daughter and the youngest grand. 
She had a little playtime at the mall playground.
Crawling everywhere.

You want to take my picture again?

Who cares if she's taking my picture again I have to figure this out.

Happy New Year

I've been trying to make new posts with pictures and for some reason just can't. I'm hoping this one will work.

We had a great Christmas but somehow it was just here and gone way too fast.

I had 3 little girls here for New Year's Eve. It seems to be a tradition for them.
This was at lunch on New Year's Eve.  My two grands.

New Year's Eve. My granddaughter and two great nieces.

Yesterday I got to spend the afternoon playing with this little one while her mommy and daddy took her big sister to a movie. She was in such a sweet, playful mood.

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

I started decorating the day after Thanksgiving. But also got sick with a cold on Thanksgiving. What timing.
Anyway when I got up this morning I decided cold or not I was going to accomplish something. So I cleared all the boxes that were left in the den added some ornaments to both trees and took some pictures.

(I have tried numerous times to upload pictures to this post and it just won't).

Picture posting success at last so adding pictures of trees and decorations.

This is a wreath I decorated with some burlap geo mesh.
New tree in the den. I finally got one of the pre-lit trees. It was so easy to put up.

The tree in the den has my angel ornaments, silver, gold and copper colors. 

The tree in the den.

The "living room" tree. This tree has ornaments I've collected over the past 43 years. There is one on there that was one of the first ornaments my husband and I ever bought for a tree.

Some of my favorite ornaments are my Coca Cola. 
I've even found a few Pepsi ornaments.

A day at the Pumpkin Farm

I love fall. The leaves are just beginning to turn.
Saturday we went to the Pumpkin Farm. It was a beautiful day to be outside.
We had pumpkin spice funnel cakes.
Went on a hay ride to the pumpkin patch.
And pet the little farm animals.

There is nothing like a nap on Nannie's couch when you aren't feeling good.
Her mommy and baby sister took naps, too.
