Some of Grandpa Den's Vegetable Beef Soup! (I make it---he eats it.)
Her little feet were moving to the music.
She knew Mommy and sister were getting closer.
Never without her jewelry.
I taught a lesson last Sunday about journals. So naturally I got mine all out to review over the past week. Here are some of my favorite quotes. Obviously they are all my favorites or I wouldn't have put them in my journal.
I snagged this off a friend's blog about 4 months ago and we have made it several times so far.
It's one of our favorite regulars now. My daughter in law makes this for her family, too.
I should have known.
After all, I raised 4 boys.
I know how they are.
So it didn't surprise me one day about 3 weeks ago when I hard a loud thump against our garage door while I was in the kitchen making dinner. I recognized that sound so I went outside to find the culprit. Two boys who were familiar to me, stood in our cu de sac with a bat and ball. I asked the boys if their ball hit my garage door. One of them said, "Yes" but as I walked up towards them, they took off running.
I didn't mean to scare them away. I wasn't angry at all. I just wanted to ask them to try to be a little more careful since I was trying to prevent dents in our garage. But they didn't give me a chance.
Then I saw their teenage sister walk towards me. She apologized for them. I told her at least they were honest and admitted to it. I said I just wanted them to be a little more careful. She said, "I know, they should, but uh, they are boys." She was right, they are boys and I know boys, and I love boys. I told her I raised 4 and they also played ball in this very cul-de-sac.
The phone rang a few hours after we got home from the twins' birthday party Monday evening. It was about 11pm and I had just finished making Den's lunch for the next day. He had given me a new IPOD for my birthday, so then I decided to download some 60s music for my grandchildren to dance to next time they would be over, when I heard the phone.
An 11pm phone call is usually bad news so I braced myself.
When I heard McKay's voice I immediately asked if he was okay. He's use to me. He said he was calling with some good news. I said, "Oh no."
I don't know why I said that.
He told me that he proposed to McKenna and they are ENGAGED!
