I have really been an absent blogger lately. Work has really been taking a lot out of me for the past few weeks. Friday I was able to get someone in the office to help me with one of my major problems but get this. Even he couldn't figure out how to make it work. He is supposed to make some phone calls and hopefully get back to me Monday. Meanwhile I have had to make the best of it manually which sucks. But, the job must get done.
I have had an excellent weekend though. Saturday, I dropped Steph at her boyfriend's house and headed out to do some much needed Christmas shopping. I was gone 5 hours! For a gal who does not like to shop this was a big deal. I got a lot accomplished also.
I picked up KFC for me and Joe for dinner. We managed to get the gifts out of the way before Steph got home. Today, Beth, Abby and Leah came out to visit. It was so wonderful. Leah is almost 4 months old and smiling like crazy. Abby was needing some special attention today too. I could just tell the way she was testing her Mom. So I paid a lot of attention to her. She rewarded me by being such a precious child I could hardly stand it. Of course I had my camera handy and got some good pics. Here, I'll share them with you.
Then it was time to get online to see Amy and her family in Ohio.
Look...you can see Amy, Emmeline, Mia, Aubrella and Jeremy

Now if this isn't enough to make a Grandmother proud, I don't know what is!
It's days like this that make me realize just how lucky I am. I have such a wonderful husband. Such a wonderful life. And I am so blessed to have great kids who have given me grandbabies galore! And that's just the start. One of these days Stephanie will have some kids of her own and I get to love them and spoil them. Ryan will someday find the right girl and hopefully will have some kids. There is so much yet to come. Some days I need to remember to stop and remember that. God has blessed me and my family and to tell you the truth I could not be happier. I mean that.....really.
