New Friends, Favorite Photo and The Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog! I missed the first week,so want to introduce myself.
If you are a new visitor, I live in Shreveport, Louisiana.



My blog documents my family and especially my adventures as a Grandmother. You will find lots of Disney posts, as we make lots of grandparent trips. We have a son and a daughter and 4 awesome grandsons. We are Disney addicts...well maybe I am. We love traveling with the grandkids...



I own a gift basket business, but the major part of my business is Holiday Tree Decorating..I (along with my elves) decorate 60-70 houses in 2 months. This is only my fifth month to blog, so this will be my first holiday season. I hope to share lots of tree tips and pictures with you.

Other addictions besides grandkids and Disney are FOOTBALL, FOOTBALL, and more FOOTBALL, coffee, diet coke (really trying to drop this one),Beth Moore Bible Studies, Dancing With The Stars, and reading blogs.I am looking forward to meeting lots of new friends. Now for my Favorite PHOTO in the last months.... read my most recent posts to understand why this is so special!

Awwwww, what a beautiful photo! I can't imagine that moment. Hopefully it'll be a while before I experience it though. Although my oldest is 19, he'd better not DARE anytime soon. I'll kill him! =0)
