"Please Nanny,  can I get up now?  How come adults want so many  pictures, anyway?  I know you want a picture of my bald head.  That came from Daddy.  He was 4 when he finally got hair.  Beside, who cares, I don't have to shampoo or comb my hair.  That sure saves me time for others things that I can get into.  I know,  you aren't through yet but please hurry.   I mean how long can a little boy sit still, anyway!  Whew!  finally finished!"

That was in April.   He was 2 November 7.  We saw Caden Thanksgiving day and he has blond hair and curls.  He is a love bug.  I hope we can see them Christmas.   I don't know why I am posting  grand children pictures now.  Guess they are on my mind.  He is Tessa Rose's little brother.
She is in the previous post.    Well, all I can say is I am a proud great grand parent.  Guess you know that by now.

  1. Here she is practicing her poses for when she gets older.  I just know she will enter a beauty pageant and win!  Ha!  Aren't we grand parents proud?  This is our great grand daughter, Tessa Rose. We get to see her about one time a year.  We saw her and her little brother Thanksgiving Day.  He is 2 yrs. old.  I will post a picture of him when I get a good picture. 

Guess she is thinking Hollywood in this pose.  I hope and pray not.  At this age they are so innocent.  It is not too early to pray that she will live for the Lord and not get into all that mess of the world.  
Forgive me, but I just had to show off a little bit!

Oh, by the way, she looks like the Sanchez!   Now, I really am showing off!

 Sending you greetings from our house to yours this Thanksgiving  Day.  I know a day is set aside but really every day should be Thanksgiving.  We surely have had many blessings  this pass  year.  Even in the times of trials and testings, God is good.  In the time of  sickness this year  ( seems like this has been my year for that)
but the Lord touches and if He doesn't see fit,  God is still good.

We wake up every day thanking the Lord for life ~ both physical and spiritually.   We have a home the Lord has given us, clothes on our back, shoes on our feet  ~  we could go on and on.  God just pours out His blessings and keeps pouring!     God is so good to us and we feel   so unworthy.  I don't know why He is so good to us but I do praise Him for  He is worthy to be praised.

As we sit down with family and friends, or maybe you are by yourself  ~  think of  God's blessings  and how good He is.   Have a blessed day!

53 Wedding Anniversary

Yesterday was our 53rd Wedding Anniversary.  God has been so good to us.  We know that He is the reason
that our marriage has been such a good one.  I can't believe it has been 56 years since I first met Silas.  We were Sophomores in high school.  His Dad was a pastor in Shreveport, about 300miles away.  I had gone with my pastor and his family to a church convention.  They were starting a new church and worshiped in an old theater building.  I had no idea he would be my husband then.  He said he knew when he first met me that I would be his wife one day.  Do you believe in love at first sight?   Guess I was a little more conscious.  Anyway, almost 3 years later we were married at my home church in Ponchatoula.   I have never regretted that day! 

I could go on and tell you all the good things and bad things we went through but I will just say that I am so thankful for the 53 years the Lord has given us and look forward to many more.

I put this on the KJV Blog over a week ago.  Thought I would post it here.

Do you have trouble remembering things?  I don't mean a major memory lose.  For example, if I am working in one room and need something in the laundry room I head out to get it.  By the time I walk through the living room and dining room to get to the laundry room ~ I have forgotten what I came after.  Guess what?  I have to go all the way back to the original room and it suddenly dawns upon me what I need.  So ~ I say the word out loud of what I needed in the first place and it sticks in my mind.  I go after it. This time I remembered.   Do you think it had anything with me saying the word out loud?

My husband and I were lying in the bed one morning this week.  Somehow we started talking about our favorite verses.  Many of you know that Psalms 37:4 is mine.  "Delight thyself also in the Lord and he shall give you the desires of  thine heart."  He said right behind me,  "Commit thy way into the Lord, trust also in him and he shall bring it to pass." ( Seems those are his favorite, also.)  Then we started quoting Scripture that we had memorized as young people.  Verses and chapters like:  Psalm 1, 121, 23 and others.  John 14 and I don't know how many we ended up with.

I am so glad that  we remembered those verses that are stored in the memory banks of our mind.  When we need them the Lord brings them to our attention.  I don't have to run to the Bible and find what the verse really says.  (It is not like things I hunt for in my house.  Running here and there to find what I am looking for.)   It's right there for me to draw on.

It is important  to teach our children the Scripture.  It is something that will be with them the rest of our life.

Crazy Post!

 It is a beautiful day here in the LA.  Suppose to get to 35 tonight.  Usually when the forecast puts that out it is changed into the upper 30's.  I have been waiting for the fire place to be burning.  Although we might have a chilly morning ~ before the day is half over we are back in the 70's.  Too hot for fireplace heat.  So I guess I wait.  Most of our leaves have not fallen yet.  I like to watch them fall.  Brings back memories of  a big pile of leaves  that Dad raked and we children running and jumping in.  That was many years ago.

I have been trying to  make tote bags out of old jeans.  I have two finished.  They turned out real cute.  I want to make them for the great grand daughters.  I plan on filling them with hair stuff, maybe socks, bath supplies that smell good.  They like that, especially if something makes bubbles.  For some crazy reason ~ I like bubbles, also.
(Not the chewing gum kind)  Do any of you that are a little older remember the crazy little song?  I only remember  four lines of it.
Does your chewing gum lose it's favor
On the bed post over night
When your Mama tells you to spit it out
Do you swallow it in spite?
If any of you remember it ~ let's finish it.   Do any of you remember lines of songs you heard as a kid?
Let's see how many we can get. 
I remember a commercial on the radio.  It was advertising  Real Kill,the bug getter.  Do any of you remember that?
Mama, mama, come quick, quick
Bugs are in the kitchen sink.
Oh, my dear, what shall we do
Too kill these bugs and others, too.

Mama, mama, Get Real Kill.
All right,my dear, I Will.
Mama, mama, get Real Kill,
All right,my dear I WILL.
Oh, and I can't forget IT'S YANKEE DOODLE TIME.

We have just finished our first quarter of home schooling.  It went by pretty fast.  Only three quarters to go for the 10th grade.
Seems like I am roaming all over on this post.  But just have to tell you one more crazy little song.  This must have been my husbands favorite.  He was in the first grade.  Christmas time was approaching. The teacher ask if anyone wanted to sing a little song.  He raised his hand.  This was his song.
Super Suds, Super Suds
A'int no soap like Super Suds. 
 Made me wonder if they needed washing powder.  Which  reminds me.  I made  my first batch of Home Made   Detergent. Am doing my first load of laundry with it.  Sure is cheaper than buying the liquid.  I did like my sister in law does.  I made it more concentrated by not adding as much water.  Hey, Ya'll!  that might be a good Christmas gift.  Maybe Silas' song was not too far off.  LOL.

Since I have been to China and back I'll go for now.  Let me hear from you out there in blog land.  I don't have my list of MY Blog Friends up.  I put it up  twice and it disappears.  But I do have you under My Favorites.
So don't think I don't want to hear  from you.  I do!
