I'm back to blogging again. A big thank you & hugs to my son for getting my lap top running again. It's so nice to have a techie in the family. It all started when he was in kindergarten. One day he told his dad that he had played with the "pewter" at school.
I want to thank everyone for the prayers & positive thoughts concerning my RA diagnosis. Those prayers are helping. I'm feeling better with each passing day. Apparently the meds are finally kicking in.
We enjoyed a fun afternoon of family time yesterday.
Emma helped me set the table for Sunday dinner. She's so eager to learn to do new things.
After dinner we baked St. Patrick's Day cupcakes.
The kiddos enjoyed helping Nana & Mommy add ingredients to the cake mix. It was exciting to see the batter turn green after the food coloring was added. Adding green sprinkles to the icing was super fun.
They really enjoyed eating their cupcakes.
Emma's favorite part was the icing.
Ethan gobbled up his entire cupcake in a flash.
We've already made plans to decorate Nana & Papaw's house for Easter & bake Easter cupcakes.
Hello, everyone! I have blogged very little since the new year began. The reason has been a simple one. I just haven't felt like it. After weeks of doctor visits & testing, I have found out I have rheumatoid arthritis. Every night is a painful, sleepless challenge. I'm waiting to see if the medication will kick in & ease the pain.
I'm ready for spring & warmer days filled with sunshine.
My neighbors, John & Deborah gave me these beautiful spring flowers the other day.
Thank you guys for putting a smile on my face!
My sisters recently visited for 2 weeks. Their presence lifted my spirits & challenged me to keep going no matter how I feel. They cooked for us, shopped with me, & helped me do a lot of organizing of closets & drawers. We love organizing & purging. When we work together we are a force to be reckoned with! We took many car loads to Goodwill. I love the feeling of having everything in order. Thank you Susan & Mary for pampering me & showering me with so many unbelievable gifts.
This is the spring mantel that my sisters help me create.
New items from Hobby Lobby are the candlesticks, green boxwood balls, green bird & the picture frame.
We found the bird to the left of the frame at our favorite junkin' place, River City Trading, in Jenks.
