Happy May!

Happy May! I wanted to pop in and share a few pictures from my month of April which seemed to fly by quickly. As I am trying to catch up with my blogging friends today I realized it had been a month since I last posted. My mercy! But, I am so busy doing this thing we call life here on earth and enjoying every moment that I can. With my immediate family of 14 there is never a dull moment y'all!   We had three family birthdays in April. My SIL David, granddaughter Adalynn and oldest granddaughter Raygen.  Our favorite grandson Conner (only grandson) carried his girl to the prom. We had to snap at least one picture with Mom and Nana! Two of my elementary school friends and I get together at least once every 4-5 weeks so we went to breakfast and then to  Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens. We always have so much fun.  The gardens are so beautiful that I couldn't even attempt to snap all the pictures I wanted. There are so many beautiful paintings to look at this but this was one of

{Happy Resurrection Day}

I hope that you all have enjoyed this beautiful Easter Sunday. He is risen!

I wanted to end the month of March in sharing a few of my favorite photos from the month. 

Celebrated my favorite grandsons birthday. Conner is 18 now! 

Our beautiful Mallory Grace all decked out for the prom.

The youngest grands (sisters) were flower girls in their uncle's wedding. The oldest one was in her element of dress up. The younger one, not so much. THAT HAIR BAND ITCHED HER HEAD she said! 

I purchased a new pair of wedges that I love. I am always skeptical about ordering shoes or clothing but read the reviews on Amazon and went for it. Love the color and the style. 

The youngest grand loves to take selfies and play with the filters. 

Marty colored Easter eggs. He always colors at least a dozen every year. He always says he's doing it for the grands but I know he does it because of the inner child in him! LOL!

I went with the little ones to Disney on Ice and we had the best time. I think I enjoyed it more than they inner child was showing as I watched such talent. 

My hearts....

Happy Easter to you all and I pray that April brings you many wonderful blessings. 

I will close with this TRUE statement.

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  12. What a precious family you have - had to laugh at the youngest not liking her itchy hair band! They are beautiful darlings! Always fun to go out and have fun! Love all the special pictures with your grands - you are such a special grandma! Your Easter pictures were beautiful! Much love to you dear friend, keeping you always in my prayers!

  13. Your post has so much to offer a reader, Cindy. But these photos do my heart so good! Your family is beautiful. I can think forever on that last quote, too! God bless you and yours.

  14. Sorry I missed this one when it was first posted. It's been a crazy month and I am still playing catch up. I loved seeing your beautiful grandchildren...I can't get over your grandson so grown up and TALL and handsome! And that Mallory in her prom dress...she's just beautiful!! Oh, don't they grow up way too fast??? The littles are so sweet in their pretty wedding dresses...they are adorable little girls as you well know. Love seeing the whole group of you together. Love the colored Easter eggs too! I haven't done that in a while, but I agree, the "inner child" would love to have some colored Easter eggs again. I may have to do that next year! I enjoyed seeing you looking refreshed and hopefully you are feeling much better these days? Praying for you and hoping all is well. God bless you all real good!

  15. I'm just catching up on your blog today. Glad you had a joyful March with the family. Can't believe it's been almost a month since Easter. Where did April go?!?

    1. Thanks Margie for stopping by. April is almost gone!

So glad you stopped by to visit.

Hiding the Ugly Hot Water Heater

 I shared that I wanted to hide my ugly hot water heater in my laundry room with you a few weeks ago. It just stuck out like a sore thumb. But after all it is a hot water heater right? So my man took a piece of wood (not real wood) but it worked and built a frame for me. So now to see if it would fit and it did. I painted it white and did not like the texture it had even after two coats of white. (rule of get what you pay for and the wood was cheap) But I wasn't going to let it whip me!  Found some contact paper at Walmart in the gray and white. Covered the front with the contact paper and loved the look. The top was covered with a piece of painted wood as well and worked perfect to place this on top... And this.... Added a clothes basket in the corner and here was the top.... Yep, no longer an eye sore to me! Went perfect with my gray walls and gray and white floor. Remember the wood tray I bought at a yard


Don't you just love sunflowers? When I think about sunflowers I think of two things. My motherinlove who loved sunflowers and Fall. I came across a devotional written by Julia Bettencourt on sunflowers and thought it so appropriate for today as I wanted to share my sunflowers with you. Here's a few lessons we can learn from the sunflower.    Sunflowers Track The Sun.   Most plants are attracted to light but the flowering head of the sunflower actually tracks the sun following it's path and moving toward where it is in the sky all during the day. I read somewhere that sunflowers track the sun when they are in bud stage. Isn't that how it usually goes for us as Christians? When we first come to know the Lord, we get excited about knowing all about Him and living for Him, but after awhile we sometimes grow a little preoccupied with other things and get our eyes off of the Lord.   Wouldn't it be great if as a Christian we'd track th

{Happy 46th Wedding Anniversary To Us}

  Happy October everyone! I wanted to pop in today and share a few pictures. Marty and I celebrated our 46th wedding anniversary on September 23.  Oh it seems so long ago that we said "I Do". We started dating when I was 16. Married at 18 and began a family at 20. Needless to say we have surely grown up together. Praise the Lord that we are growing "Older" together.  We decided since it had been about 8-9 years since we had been to Savannah, Ga. that we would take a weekend there and just enjoy a scenic luncheon cruise.  We enjoyed walking River street and sightseeing, shopping and eating of course! It was a nice get away and perfect for us as we are simply two imperfect people that fit perfectly together.  I did spot Santa while in Savannah though! YES, I love Christmas so I had to stop at several Christmas shops! We've had outings that have kept us quite busy and we have surely been blessed to be able to attend our grands functions and our little outings toget
