{If You're Happy And You Know It Clap Your Hands}

Do you remember singing that song as a child or singing it to your children and maybe now even your grandchildren? Have you ever woke up singing? I know that sounds crazy but I woke up this morning with that cute little song on my lips. AND all I can say about that is that it must have been from GOD HIMSELF because I was late getting to bed and it was raining when I awoke this morning and I wasn't thinking HAPPY! LOL!


Remember the chair makeover I shared by simply giving it a fresh coat of paint? I loved how the blue just popped and grandgirl looks adorable sitting in the cute blue chair.



Her birthday is in two weeks but we snapped a few pictures of her prior to her birthday and we celebrated with a family party yesterday afternoon. We have lots of birthdays going on right now.

She already has a little farmer tan going on. This child starts turning brown as soon as she gets a little sun. She looked like the Coppertone baby last summer.
I managed to snap some really cute pictures and will share some more next week. For some reason her mama thinks she needs to be the first one to share pictures so guess I will wait! LOL!


 My niece made her cake and it turned out adorable.


She had so much fun at her little party. Us GROWN kids did too! 


We had a weekend of soccer, basketball and soft ball with the grands. Love watching the kids play ball but with my crew growing in numbers I am finding that we have to pick and choose and take turns. But, I am so glad that they do what they love and love what they do. Besides, it keeps them active.
 

We managed to make a trip to purchase lighting for the kitchen. That is now marked off my list. Now to have time to install them......I will have to show you a picture after we install them. Girls, I am checking things off my list slowly but surely for my "Kitchen Makeover".

  
I did get my family beach trip booked for summer and that is very exciting! Oh I will be going to the beach before summer but at least my 7 days with the family has been booked. Thank you Jesus for all things and that includes the beach because I am ready to lay in a lawn chair and read a good book! That is if this Florida weather will cooperate!

I do hope you all have a great week. 
"This is the day that the Lord has made, let us be glad and rejoice in it". Psalm 118:24

  1. That is the cutest picture ever of that little granddaughter Cindy. The blue chair worked perfect. Cute pictures of y'all with the grandchildren. I know they enjoyed you being there. I am glad you can mark another thing off of your list. Oh I am longing to go to the beach but this crazy weather has got to change. Happy week to you Cindy.

    1. Thank you. She is a cutie. Has our families heart for sure. I love the beach. Marty used to dislike beach. But after first year of going with the family he loves to go too. Mainly to relax and rest. I am wanting to dig my toes in the sand. However, our weather has got to change a little before heading to the beach.

  3. Oh my goodness, Cindy, your grandgirl is just too precious for words!! I know she had a fun party with everyone. I also loved seeing you with the bigger kids at their games. I'm looking forward to seeing the new lighting and your kitchen makeover. You'll be Happy and You Know It, when it's all done!

  6. I have woke up with a song on my lips, too! I went straight to church and sang it as a special! That grandgirl of yours is so so so cute, Cindy! She reminds me of our oldest granddaughter when she was that age. She knew how to pose and look cute, just like your little one! The cake is adorable...and you and your husband are such a blessing the way you go to watch your grands play ball. xx

  9. Yes! I wake up with songs on my lips all the time. That's why I only listen to uplifting songs in my truck....what goes in comes out! You are one busy grandma....looks like lots of fun. I had to giggle a little that you planned your vacation at the beach... my thinking is that all Floridians go to the beach all the time!

    1. Lol! Ann marie to be honest it se ms we don’t go enough to the beach. A friend told me recently it seemed we would rather go out of state than visit some of the places in our own state that we’ve never seen . There’s so much in Florida to do where i live. But we do enjoy our family beach trips .

  15. Your newly repainted chair is the perfect backdrop for the birthday girl! She’s such a cutie!! I wonder where you will put the chair? Did you mention a spot in your kitchen? You certainly are staying busy. Checking off the kitchen to-do list is exciting, I can’t wait to see more! Good to hear you’re making travel plans, we have been, too. Our 30th anniversary is this year and we are working on a big trip. I think planning trips is almost as much fun as going on them, don’t you?

    By the way, our “special news” true, the date is late September!! Have a great week, Cindy!

  16. Your little pumpkin looks adorable in your new "blue" chair. I need to buy some spray paint and change some things.
    Your life is so full with all your kids and grandkids. I don't know how you get so many projects done and blog too!
    Thinking about a beach trip sounds great right now. The weather was down right cold yesterday and still cool today. So unusual to be so cold this late.
    Have a wonderful Easter.💐🐇💐

But when you work, thought I only work PT, family life, church life and well, life....we do good to do what we do I reckon. Girl, on my days off I work harder than I would have at work and some days I think....I can't get any thing done. LOL! Hope to show more next week. I love spray paint!

  29. Cindy,
    Me again!! Thanks so much for stopping by!! I have always known that we would not be able to stay in our home as we got older. The steps both to get into our house and the ones inside our house are going to be the death of me. I am tired of constantly putting money into our house. My sons live in an apartment complex where thie heat and water are included in their rent along with all their appliances. They have 24 hours mantenance and if something breaks, it is fixed almost immediately and they do not have to pay for it!! Plus they do not have to pay taxes either!! That souns pretty good to me!! I am looking at 10 years down the road because it will take me 10 years to downsize....
    Happy Easter!!
    Hugs,
    Deb
