It is so quiet here. I haven't heard the word grandma since yesterday morning. The boys are home and I am cleaning, doing paperwork, soap orders, gardening and getting ready for 2 more grands arriving tomorrow. Williams grandson's Will and Harvey will be coming to spend the week. Harvey is only 8 months old so this will be his first time staying and enjoying the homestead.
On a different topic, I have had quite a few questions on my photos. How I add words, do fades, etc. Its very very easy. Just go to picnik and join for free. You can do so many things with your photos and its easy step by step instructions. Believe me if I can do it anyone can. Now its back to chores and enjoying the quiet.

Enjoy the quiet! I know it's nice to have the kids with you, but I know it must be tiring too! Have a good time on your "day off!"

Hey Peggy. I know you are missing the boys right about now and vice-versa.
Have fun with the next arrivals. The picnik site sounds interesting. Can't wait to check it out.
Have a good weekend.

Enjoy the quiet , it'll soon be over when the little one arrives , but I'm sure you'll enjoy the noise.
My Grands are eight months too and quite a handful. Looking forward to seeing and hearing about the adventures with the little one.

It seems so wrong when we don't hear the word Grandma, doesn't it. I'm glad the boys are home safe and sound and that more grands are arriving for you to care for. An 8 month old will keep you busy, for sure.

Take care and enjoy the kids. They grow up far too fast.

By the way, I love your new look.

Enjoy that peace and quiet while it lasts! Activity is a nice diversion around here, but I find myself dreaming of peaceful boring days pretty fast. :)

Take it easy,

Thanks for coming by. Yes it was busy,but fun. i wanted to tell you I let mom use my lotion I bought from you an she loved it. I will order some for her Christmas. I also wanted to ask if you ha considered making a baby smell soap? My Jayden has very allergic and tender skin. I think this would be good. If you do let me know so I can get some of that too.
