Catching up

Whew, What a hot hot summer! Finally have my computer set up where it is cool. Have worked on my crazy quilting but no pics yet, maybe tommorow. I have recently been working on my dollhouse and have accomplished quite a bit. Am in the middle of doing the wiring right now. It was already wired but was having so much trouble keeping the work that was already done on it, working, decided to start over. Walked in the other day and this is what I found!

Yes, the dollhouse is upside down. I decided it was easier to wallpaper the ceilings with it upside down, and did some of the walls too! Our grandson, who we call Peanut, is growing like a weed. He is 5 months old now and laughing and starting to grab his toys and bottle. Just too cute for words! Here is a pic from 4months.

Here are a few more pics of some cute happenings around our place. My baby Maggie is growing and is the subject of all kinds of cute pics. She loves Lucky, my daughter's cat and we caught a pic of them sleeping together. She also loves to sleep in Dad's lap. The next pic is of our nightly visitor to the outside cat's food bowl. The last pic is of my sunflowers, that tall one is 9' 6" tall.

A Little About Me

Hi and Welcome! I am 50 years old, married with 2 girls Andrea and Crystal, and 3 grandchildren. A girl, Jesi who is 13 that we are raising and a boy, Christian, who is 6 and, lives with Mom. Andrew James or Peanut is 6months old and brother to Jesi. We live in a house built in 1897 that is not in the best of shape but we are working on it and we love it. It is a 2 story colonial style with big columns and a big wrap around front porch. We also have 6 cats, of which only part of are allowed in the house, and 5 dogs. A Momma dog and 4 puppies. She had 9, we gave one away, then they all came down with parvo. I lost 4 but was able to save 4. A heartrending experience but was just glad to be able to save any. No help from the vet as they want so much money but found some homeopathic remedies that actually worked. I also have a 7 month old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that is my baby. She goes everywhere with me, sleeps under the covers with me, and is just the cutest thing ever.
