I'm getting my first haircut, and Aunt Holly is giving it to me. She is a good hair cutter!!
I got to play with her water bottle too.

I was being really good and mommy was holding me.

Look at me I'm so handsome.

What a perfect way to end a beautiful haircut. We love each other so much!!!

What a Wonderful Weekend

Look at me and all these toys. What do I play with first?

I can get into GinGin's cabinet and make a mess, because it is a mess anyway.
These are my Great-Granmothers, Gran and Nanny.

GinGin made me some sugar cookies. I really like those cookies with icing.

I can walk if GinGin holds my hands. I might be walking by myself at Christmas.

I like to play peek-a-boo now. See me lookin for ya?

Shani and Wes, Holly and her girlfriend Kasey, Kenny's Mom (Betty) and my Mom and Dad came to have lunch yesterday. We had such a wonderful time. We had quesadillas, and cheese-filled bacon wrapped jalepenos.
I so wanted to give wes his Christmas presents to play with, but I resisted a little. I gave him the smallest one and he did have fun playing with it. He left it here and I will wrap it and he probably won't even remember it.
We had a wonderful visit. I wish we could do it more often.

Secret Santa Yippee!!!

Oh, Boy!! Went to the mailbox and found my Secret Santa Gift. Oh, what fun!!! Inside the special gift bag, were so many goodies. Beautiful candles, delicious chocolate, precious soap and darling bookmarks, a cute as a button big button of
Wes that I put on immediately, and the cutest Secret Santa Gift Tag.
OH, I love it all, can't wait to sit around this holiday season and read and use my magnetic bookmarks. I at a piece of chocolate right off and it was delicious.
THANKS SO MUCH, whoever you are. MERRY CHRISTMAS!! I'm mailing my gift today, I's had a hard time finding the right box.

Little Peyton Payne is doing very well so far

If you have checked the caring bridge wesite about Peyton, you know that she is doing better everyday and they are past the 72 hour mark. Her little chest may be sewn up on Sunday and if it is and everything continues as is, she will be off the ventilator and should go home in about 10 days or 2 weeks.

I just cannot imagine going through that with that precious baby. I am thankful this Thanksgiving for the medical technology and doctors that perform these jobs today. My daughter Shani told me her heart was the size of a strawberry. OMG, how are they able to do the wonderful things they do. A week old baby on a ventilator and a pacemaker. Thank you Lord for all the wonderful medical miracles performed by excellent surgeons. Praise God!!! Thanks to everyone in blog-land for you prayers. Keep up the good work.

Please add this family to your prayers, and church prayer chains

Our son-in-law Jack works for this couple and they just had a baby last week. She is a precious baby girl and she will be having open heart surgery. It was scheduled for this morning, but has had to be moved due to the fact that two scrub nurses had to call in sick. The doctor did not want to perform this critical surgery without those nurses, so it was moved to tomorrow. Please keep this family in you prayers. I do not know that I would be able to go through this type of problem with a newborn baby. It is hard enough when they are so tiny and helpless. It really makes me realize how lucky I was with both of my pregnancies.
I know that they will appreciate all of your prayers!!! Thanks.

Please checkout her story and mom's journal

Thankful Thursday

I feel so inspired to participate in this type of blog, and the inspiration comes from so many of you fellow bloggers. I have been so busy with school that I have not taken the time to look around. Now, I realize how much it improves my attitude when reading some of your blogs. So here goes, today I am thankful for the wonderful hugs that I receive as a teacher. It is such a wonderful feeling to have a little elementary child come up and give you a hug. They are really in need of hugs and so are their teachers.

My fellow teachers and I in the elementary school had the privilege of participating in McDonald's, McTeacher Night during a three hour time teachers greet, sell trays of cookies, and help a little behind the counter. A portion of the sales during this time are given to our school. This is a great fund raiser and will help the teachers purchase some necessary supplies for their classroom.

Also, it was a lot of fun for all who came to eat and socialize. I think it went very well. It will be interesting to see how the fund raiser turns out.

I am thankful for all of my precious students. They are a challenge at times, but a true joy. I am also thankful for their parents and their support.

God Bless them all!!!!

Halloween !! Such a blast with a little one

We hadn't seen Wes in a couple of weeks so we decided to go over and spend the weekend with Shani and Jack to see Wes TRICK OR TREAT!! Of course he doesn't know about this yet, but he is always so good with whatever we take him to do. He is just the most precious little bundle of joy!! His mommy and daddy are so good and caring with him. They love him dearly. They are so patient and it makes him that way also. A friend of mine from school, brought me the cutest hand me down costume of a paint horse. So of course we had to make sure that Wes got to be the paint horse on his first Halloween. He can't eat any of the candy, so Gin-Gin and mama got to eat the candy. In Corsicana the merchants on the main street all give out candy and pictures are taken of the children in costume.

Giggling Baby

WES is giggling a lot now. Shani called last week and all I could hear was Wes giggling. That is the best sound EVER!!! She said that Jack was roping the dummy and he roped it a couple of times, and then he missed and Wes just started giggling that funny little giggle and then everytime Jack threw the rope Wes would just giggle. We went to see them on Saturday and one of Jack's friend was outside roping and Shani stopped beside him and Wes started to laugh at him, when he threw the rope. He is just so much fun.

Barrel Race in Waco, and I GOT TO BABYSIT

I got to see Wes several times this past week. It was so fun. We went to his house on Wednesday night. I got to help Shani give hime a bath and here we are right after his bath.

Then on Friday afternoon, I took half a day off to go to the barrel race in Waco and keep him while his momma ran barrels.

Saturday Holly and I went to Antique Alley in Cleburne. We had a great time finding good garage sale junk. We found Holly some good bargains, like new driving moccs and a brand new with tags old navy purse, and several other things. We really had a good time just being together and we left there and headed to Waco to help keep Wes during the barrel race again. We had a wonderful time playing with Wes, looking at all the really cute cowgirl goodies they had for sale there and spending some time with Shani and her good friend Kaci. They both had really good barrel runs!!!
Aunt Holly loves her some Wes, too.

Wes' mommy loves him, so very much!!!

Beauty Shop Snake--OMG

I was so excited to go see Sherrill, my darling cosmetologist yesterday. She is so cute and I really like the way she does my hair. Of course I have to have 3 hours worth of work, because I need dark color on my roots and then I have a highlight and lowlight. Next, comes the cut and then the Chi iron, finally an eyebrow wax and lip wax. Well, I think I am finally looking better now and covering up that gray for another 3-4 weeks.

I'm finally done after all that and since it's pretty late Sherrill has locked the door and has to come to the door with me and let me out. Thank God for that!!! As she unlocks the door and I step out, she starts to scream, I'm thinking OMG what the hell is she screaming at and as I look down I see a 3-4 foot long snake slitthering between my feet and around hers. I see this slithering thing goin so damn fast, right inside the beauty shop!!! Of course we jump out the door and now we are on the outside and the snake is on the inside. We look at each other, shiver and scream again. Then we start to laugh. I'm like what the heck are we going to do now, I can call KB and he can come over and get it for us. She said, well I can call the the owner's husband and I'm sure he will come. So we both get on our phones and the owner's husband is on his way.

KB just says, "Oh WOW, just open the doors and shoo is out the door." I'm like "Yeah, right". I'm not going back in there with that snake.

Well, since the owner's husband is coming, the owner calls the police, because she doesn't know if it is poisonous or not. Sherrill and I sneak back in beside the snake hoping it stays along the wall. We get by him and Sherrill gets a broom and gets on top of a chair. I'm like if you start trying to move him and he heads my way, I'm going to have a freakin' heart attack. So I get behind the desk on top of a chair. Sherrill moves the broom toward the snake and he starts to wind around like he is going to strike, then he finally turn and starts looking toward the door. She just calmly keeps the broom pushing him out slowly. He gets close to the door and goes up the wall first. The he finally goes out the door but gets behind the door and starts up the wall. So I'm dang sure not going out the door. Now the policeman shows up with his expertise. He tells Sherrill to throw him the broom. He starts after him and says, "dang he is a fast one." The snake starts around the side of the building and the cop never sees him again.

OH, Yeah, while we are on the chairs and the snake is heading to the door, I told Sherrill get your phone and take a picture, or no one will ever believe this happened to us. So this you see at the top of the post is the snake as he was trying to go up the wall before heading out the door.

GinGin's Second Grade

Surfing to Second. My class bulletin board is a beach fun theme. My kids got to design and decorate their own surfboards.

Students can sit and read beside the pool or palm tree during special reading time.

We work in groups on many projects.

Here's our first science project of observing bean seeds and then planting to see the parts of plants.
