Friday Pretties!


I am linking again to Joyce at I love pretty things.
I had thought up a post and I was going to get out
my antique dishes and show you some of the dishes
I collect.
But...
My daughter had to go to the doctor for her pre-natal
visit and I kept the kids. I did find out she is due
on April 9th which is awesome.
I found out watching a 18 month old and a 3 year old
is a bunch of work. Good work, but lots of running.
They helped me unload the dishwasher, and gather
eggs. They made a fort and ate lots of gold fish crackers.


Then at dinner they kept us laughing with their chatter.
Our oldest grandson told stories on his self at dinner and we
tired so hard not to laugh. I looked up and once again I had
six around my dinner table.

After dinner we watched Rescuers Down Under because it is
Gran-pa's or P aqua favorite Disney movie.

Now they are asleep. So I could get on the computer. I am once reminded
again how much work being a full time, on the call day or night
mommy is and how fast it goes by and you know I never noticed
until now with babies in my lap, why did I never sit and hold
my own and watch movies with them, was all the stuff I did so
important?

One of my sons made my grandson a small sword out of foil. My grandson was
so happy you would have thought it was made of silver. I wish that
I could keep all of the snapshots I took today that are in my brain
in the forefront so I would never forget.
The smell of sleepy babies, and the feel of their little warm bodies
as they relax and get ready for bed. I found out something
I don't need to be skinny, yep, it dawned on me. Round
and soft is a much better shape for a grandma. :) Just
thought you should know.


I keep trying to get pictures of the water on flowers.
So that is why I keep showing these kinds of pictures.
I am obsessed with moisture so that is what I keep trying
to get.
Have a lovely Friday!

Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, for His wonderful works to the children of men!

(Psalm. 107:6)

  1. oh, Kim. I am like you...I LOVE to have the grandchildren around. Doesn't happen as much as I would like, of course. Love the photos of the flowers with the moisture on them.

  5. What a sweet post! There is something so special about snuggling with a little one...especially in the winter when they have on their warm pjs. I remember those blanket sleepers...now that was some serious cuddling! :-) So glad you had a fun day!

  7. Oh I couldn't agree more. There is nothing like a day with the grands. I saw mine yesterday for a couple of hours too. And the six year old curled up on my lap (plenty round here, haha) and showed off how well he is reading now. He was soo excited to "show me"...Time does go soo fast as it seems like just yesterday he was a baby with a rattle. I watched these 3 last year while their mama was working for a while and I VERY QUICKLY remembered just what was involved with all of that. This grandma over here is glad to stick to "grandmaing" haha...Have a wonderful week-end. BLESSINGS

  9. Kim, what you said about having the grand kids around is true. When my twin grand sons were just learning to walk they were standing in front of my just cleaned patio glass door. They both put their little hands on the glass to steady themselves as they were looking out and left four perfect hand prints on the glass. Then they went home with their mom and little sister. I looked at those little finger prints on my door and felt that they were too precious to remove and left them there for a long time. It's was the only thing they could give me or leave me of themselves and I cherished it so much. It's in the little things like that, that I could see how precious we are in the eyes of God. I love your post. JB

  10. Kim, you were wondering how to post photos that were on their side to show up the right way on your blog. If you check my post yesterday about In Flanders Fields, I got a mini tutorial from an Anonymous reader and I turned my photos the right way. JB

  11. Oh I just love this, my heart just jumps for joy..even the comment on your size for a grandmother. My daughter-in-law text the other night was well..."get ready because God has promised me a lot of children!" I can't wait!
    Congratulations on grand baby in April...out the eight of us we have three in April.
    Look forward to your dishes, but enjoyed this post!

  12. Sweet! PW is kind of what I was going for (only I don't want it to look just like hers, I need my own style...) Yeah, I've been playing around with coding for the past few days. It's still not what I want exactly, but it's getting closer.

  13. what a precious time with your sweet grands. i love
    how you tell a story, so straight forward but with a
    little lyrical note, here and there.

    i can remember my kids saying, "mom please watch
    this with us." sometimes i did but always had so
    much to do. what was so important about the work?

    love,
    lea

  14. Thanks for watching them! It was an overly-long doctor's visit, too.

    So, I'm curious. What sorts of stories did my son tell on himself? :-)
