Hello everyone!

I thought I should update my blog since I haven't been on in awhile. That seems to be the story of my life. I have been visiting my family out in Oklahoma since July 2 and here it is Aug 28th. Where has the time gone. I came out to be with my sister during some health issues she was having. Let me say that they were pretty scary for our family. I am thankful to say that although she did have to have a few surgeries she is going to be fine. I am very thankful. My niece was in a terrible car wreck yesterday, totaled her car. A man driving a pickup pulled out in front of her, he didn't see her. She slammed on her brakes and slid sideways 69 feet. I am just thankful she just has bumps and bruises!!!

My daughter Nickie and grandson Jasper are on there way as I type this to come and visit family here, her plane will be landing in about 3 hours. I am really excited to see both of them. It is very hard to be away from my kids and grandkids when out here. I love all of my family, but do miss my other family. I really really miss my husband, and am thankful that he understands that my family needed me this summer and he told me you need to go. It was really hard because while I have been out here, he was hospitalized with problems with his heart. He did not want me to come home. My kids were there, there was nothing I could do, that is what I kept telling myself. I still felt guilty. He is home know, recovering. Patiently waiting for my return at the end of Sept.

I have had a very good time out here in Oklahoma with my family, even though I came out to be with my sister for health reasons. I have gotten to see a lot of my family. I have been here for the birth of one of my great-nephews birth, went to great-nieces birthday parties, great-nephews birthday parties, I got to see my step sister and her family from Texas who I don't get to see very often since I live in California. I have seen alot of family and still have a month to go.

Proud New Grandmother

It has been quit awhile since I have been on my blog. I haven't been crafting at all. I have moved three times in the last year. We are finally in a house that we are gonna be in until we finally decide to move back home to Oklahoma, whenever that is.
I am posting pics of my 2 new grandchildren, my granddaughter is now 2 months old and her name is Annamarie Leslie, her middle name is my first name so my first name sake, my grandson was born on March 8th and weighed 6lbs 2oz and was 17 1/2 inches long. His name is Jasper Ean Derrick Adams and I helped deliver him. He came so fast that it was just the OB nurse and myself there, he was born 33 minutes after we arrived at the hospital, good thing I am a nurse. Love having babies again. Jasper and his Momma live with us for now. We found out about a week ago that our son and his wife are expecting and our 15th grandchild is due October 3rd, and is there first child.
I am in the process of painting the interior of our house, unpacking boxes, and trying to find all my stamping and card making supplies. I am hoping to have all of my crafting stuff found this week. I haven't done any since last summer and am missing it so much!
 I hope you enjoy the pictures.
My Mom is coming out from Oklahoma next week to spend 2 1/2 weeks with us and see her great grandchildren.

Current Goings On!

I am sharing a picture of what my Secret Sister sent me for my July package. I am in a group of ladies who belong to Splitcoast Stampers. We exchange names and then send secret packages for 3 months to our SS's, then on the third month we reveal who we are. It is such a fun thing to do. I am still in Oklahoma visiting  my family. My granddaughter Lexie came with me, she is 14 and hasn't been out here since she was 8, so she in enjoying seeing family again. My Mom and I took Lexie to a book signing in Tulsa the other day, she is an avid reader and loves author P.C. Cast & Kristen Cast, series, A House of Night Novel, I have included a picture of Lexie with them. I purchased their new book which she had autographed along with one of her older ones. I also had a book autographed for my daughter Nickie and my niece Megan.  Lexie sure did have fun.  The hot weather is terrible, we have had triple digits for over 3 weeks from 101-110 you add the humidity to that and it is pretty miserable. I haven't been making any cards due to my M.S., which I am sure is due to the heat. Thanks for stopping by!

A Beautiful Saturday

I enjoyed a great Saturday with the Grandkids. We went to Austin's baseball game, then I took Gregg home to go to bed as he had worked night ship but stayed up to go to the 9am game. Lexie and I took John to the park and had a great time, then we went to Hometown Buffet for a late lunch. John calls icees cold freezes and he loves them. He is always saying that is what he wants to drink, they have those at the buffet we go to.
Anyway, hope you enjoy the pictures of the grandkids.
