I just want to share a few pics of the beautiful foliage on our trip to Tennessee. This is the best time of the year to go. The sky was beautiful and the air was crisp. Gorgeous!!!! Of coarse, the tourist were crazy in Pigeon Forge. I am going to try to post later, but today is halloween.

I had a truly awesome birthday. It started like I told you with my sissy and neice earlier in the week. Then my bestest friend in the world, Kim brought us lunch, (taco bell salad) Yummo! She brought me a cute card about not being able to hear. Can you imagine? It had a hobby lobby gift card! Yay! Then my other two friends at work brought me another cute card about not being able to see, hmmmph! It had a gift card from my favorite place to eat, olive garden, yummo. The kids at school made me nice cards and made me brownies. But it didn't stop there my sweet husband got me a real cute cake and we had pizza for dinner. He got me the cutest little cat diamond necklace. I am gonna try to find a picture of it. It is adorable. Then for the weekend, I am going to tennessee with my sissy and neice. What more could a girl ask for? Diamonds, chocolate cake, food! YUMMO!

It took me a few days, but I finally figured out how to get my music on my blog! Yay. Kimmie, I put a couple of songs on for you! Not by Cher, but it is on there. I will add to it now that it is on there. Val, I couldn't get it to work like you said, it kept saying it had an error. But I got it and that's what counts.

My husband really is hot, but this was only a costume he got to wear to his halloween party with his biker friends. This is so funny b/c it is so not Rick. When he said he was going to this party, it surprised me. Then when he said he was getting a costume to wear, it floored me. You see, I am the one in the family who don't know a stranger. Rick is so out of place among a room of strangers. He just joined this motorcycle group a few months back. It is the local chapter of HOGGS. That is something to do with Harley????? He said everyone in the club is really nice, he just don't know anybody yet. Anyway here he is checking it out. We laughed so hard b/c it was hilarious when it started to blow up and when he tried to sit down. I love that man!

Isn't he cute???

                                                     He has a new job!
Flexing the old muscles!

Now I don't want to brag, but my husband has got to be one of the hottest around. This is why I love him sooooo. He has been working out lately and it really shows! Sandy, I thought you might get a kick out of seeing your brother lookin so fine. I am so glad that your coming home for Thanksgiving. We miss you! I have a lot of new scrapbooking things to share with you. Plus, I will give you the chick stamp that I am sure Fergie carried off.
                                                                The back isn't shabby either!

This is our "Granny Box". Caroline, Kim and I wanted to send granny a little something for her birthday. We found some really pretty material and Kim got some real pretty quilt pieces. We also included some thread b/c Val said granny loves it. And of coarse, you have to put some chocolate in it. Caroline had gotten this box and she brought it to put everything in it. Isn't it pretty?? Do you think granny is going to get spoiled? Naw, she is too sweet for that.

I figured while I was at it, I might as well continue. I not only have a picture of my quilt but some other pics. I love my quilt and apparently Fergie does too. I had to move her a couple of times and she kept coming back, so I took the pic with her in it. My quilt goes from being on my bed to covering me up at night. I love my granny quilt!

Also my new camera, love, love, love it!

Since I apparently don't know how to post pictures right, here is Brianna.............................

Well, my sister gave me her aquarium a few months back. She had two little, yes I said little frogs in it and a few fish. Well, for some reason these frogs that are not suppose to get too big are growing like a weed and they are eating everything I put in there. I think I will call them little piggies. None of us can believe how they have grown, they are like quadrupaled in size. I wish I had a before pic, but all I have is the now. I will keep you updated. That is if they don't get out and eat the family! I also I wanted to show off my cute little Brianna. We took them to Coney Island a few weekends ago. I hate to brag , but I will. I must have some of the cutest grandkids on the planet. These shots are her "striking a pose" Do you think she's a ham? This is my shy one. (really)

My sister, Caroline and my sweet niece, Lindsey came over today and brought presents. Caroline bought me a new camera b/c mine is trying to bite the dust. I can only see half a screen. Anyway it is purple, my favorite color and it is little and too cute. I will post pics tomorrow(hopefully) and I will post my other wondeful gift. If you know anything about cardmaking or scrapping, it is an amazing gift. If you don't know anything about them, it is still an amazing gift. It is a cuddle bug. You can emboss and cut shapes on card stock. It is amazing. We have went to a couple of classes and they were so much fun.Lindsey will never know what this means to me. She is so sweet. I love, love, love,love my gifts. Did I say how much I love them. After the opening of the presents, we went granny birthday shopping. Caroline wanted to get in on the action b/c she got one of grannies quilts and she has been following Val's blog. Anyway, we were at walmart getting fabric and things and you know me and my big mouth. We (really it was all me) started talking to the sweet lady helping us. I told her how we were getting fabric for a special lady's birthday. Well, needless to say by the time we left, she had Val's blog address. She talked like she had some quilting fabric squares she just might need to send granny. Any way, we had a wonderful fun filled day. On the way home, we decided we are taking a road trip to Tennessee next weekend. We will go on saturday and go to The Dixie Stampede show and then come home on sunday. As Mackenzie(Caroline's granddaughter) like to yell ...............ROAD TRIP!!!

Well, I finally figured out how to put my Granny button on. And best of all, I got my Granny quilts today. I love them. If my camera works tomorrow, I will post pics of them. One of them is for my sissy, so I will let her choose first. It doesn't matter to me b/c I love them both. This weekend is going to be a good time to stay in and clean on my house. Lord knows it could use it. Tomorrow is sweetest day, which is normally no big deal, but both of my sisters have been going thru some roughs times, so I think I am going to buy them each a dozen roses! No, I am not rich but Krogers has them on sale this week for $14.99 for 2 dozen.

Ok, so Marissa did not have that swine flu! But they told David and Heather to watch her real close b/c it could turn into it. She did finally break her fever last night and has not had one today. I will post more later,but I did want to update everyone.

My first born grandchild is sick. Now all you grandma's know how much you love ALL your grandkids, but you know that feeling of it being your first. Anyhoo, Marissa has been running a temp for a few days. Her parents couldn't keep it down. So, today they took her to the hospital and they are pretty sure she has the H1N1 flu. So, I need everyone to say a little extra prayer for her tonight. She is quarinteaned(?????) up in her room and has to wear a mask if she comes out of it. She also has 2 ear infections, so they had to do a culture b/c the original test was giving a false/negative reading. So, the hospital will call tomorrow with the results for sure. But none the less, she sounds horrible and she really is sick. As I was sitting here blogging about my baby, my other baby (the real baby), Matty called. He is about 18 months old and he is too stinkin cute. He calls me "Mamma D". Well, that's all I got for now. Let me go get in my P.J. so I can ready for my sleepness, restless night. You know how we say we aren't going to worry until there is something to worry about. Yea, right! This is a picture of Marissa with her great, great, great Aunt Minnie, Matty is just Matty!

Well, I am trying something new, not sure if it is going to work. I was looking at my old post and realized I love sharing my grandkids and family, even my animals. So I am going to try to be more faithful with this one. We shall see!
