The fun of a "Guess"

(Paige, Grace, Amy, Kaylee, Haylee Kate, Stashia, Debbie, Gentry)
We've got an abundance of girls in our family.
Yes, we also have some handsome guys in our family, but with the exception of two, it seems that a guy must marry into our mix to find a place among the girls.

Lil' Mama is pregnant with #3.
So what's your guess?
Will we continue with our string of Granddolls or will we add a "boy child" to the mix?  

What's your guess?

*It will be July before we know Gender.

The Naughty Pig

Knotty Pig BBQ, 
a Tulsa tradition.

Not being one to forego tradition
Mister and I became the "Naughty Pig"
on our weekend trip to Tulsa, when we indulged.
Is there anything better than a  BBQ Bologna Sandwich?


Strangest thing.  When we lived in Louisiana none of our friends  had ever heard of BBQ Bologna, let alone eaten any. 

So tell me,
Which state do you live in?
Have you ever eaten a BBQ Bologna Sandwich?
Can you find them where you live?

Variety is the Spice, and we're Spicy!

Such a variety of things happening during May.  We made another drive to Tulsa on Saturday to celebrate a brand new teenager, our youngest Tulsa granddoll.

Happy 13th Birthday, Grace!!
We began by eating dessert first!
Gave her the choice of The Cheesecake Factory, a local ice cream shop, or a yogurt shop she frequents.  Yogurt was her choice - chocolate with candy toppings..

Then we spent the afternoon shopping with her for clothes & makeup, before a stop at a HUGE video/game/arcade "The Main Event".  We finished the afternoon up with dinner at the place of her choosing, a restaurant along the river.  She ordered sushi (BLECH!) and ate every bite!...How well I remember the day she was born - I digress.

This is sooo very random, but I have the need to share.  I've tried making my own Taco/Chili Seasoning Mix before but haven't found quite the right combination UNTIL last week.  Today I doubled the recipe and filled two containers with the mixture.  Bring on the Tacos, Chili, and even brown beans.  Love this stuff!  Found the recipe on Pinterest.  You may already make your own.  I'm often late to the party with things like this, but in case you're interested here is the recipe:

6 T chili powder
4 t ground cumin
3 t. paprika
2 t. garlic powder
2 t onion powder
1 t black pepper
1/4 t cayenne pepper

Mix together and store in an air tight container.  Use 2 T with 1 lb of meat. I put my mixture in an old spice container but a baggie would work just fine.

When we bought this house last year we knew we wanted/needed to update the guest bathroom.  It's so frightening hiring a contractor when you're new to the area, but I think I'm about 24 hrs away from signing on the dotted line.  Wish me luck.  Yes, there will be before & after photos and I sure hope they're of the happy variety.

Expecting guests next weekend.
Going back to Tulsa for yet another graduation.
Then, HK will be spending next week with us.
Stay tuned!

Sometimes life brings little surprises.

Sometimes life brings big surprises.

Then sometimes life brings
BIG honkin', knock-you-on-your-butt

It's true!
(Would HK and Lady GaGa lie?)

Little MaMa and Mr. Hubby
will be presenting us with a new grandbaby
for Christmas!

I admit I had to sit down when I got this surprise news.  Little Mama's health is quite fragile and tho this wasn't in their original plans, God has seen fit to bless them with yet another sweet baby, and who are we to not be thrilled with such a precious gift?!  Soooo, yet again, Bloggy friends, we are off and running with a very high-risk pregnancy.  

I'm lovin' me some Ephesians 3:20
"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us...

Grandbaby #6!

Mama's Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up...

"Mama's don't let your babies grow up..."
Don't let them do it 'cause this is what will happen.

Your adorable, chubby cheeked, ballerina

Congratulations sweet Kaylee.
Class of 2016

I love you!
So proud to be your YaYa.
Ok. Can someone hand me a Kleenex?

I've got it!

I've got a bad case of it, "Flower Envy".
I recently took a walk through Woodward Park in Tulsa.  A feast for the eyes.  What is it about flowers that make women swoon? I dream of lush, big gardens that I can enjoy every time I step out my door, then I'm reminded that most things, including flowers, begin as "babies".

My "babies".
First Spring in this house.
Dreaming is free and unlimited.

Got any "babies" at your house?
