A day filled with frustration, a scary day beyond belief.

No way I can possibly answer each one of you but your words and prayers have literally kept us sane today. Jacks blockage appears to be 100 percent at least that's what the cat scans show...We have had 4.

He needs an MRI but cannot have one because he had a back surgery 20 something years ago and has a bone stimulator in his stomach that I had even forgotten about....

Well today it was VERY IMPORTANT because an MRI is better for a vascular surgeon to see if it is 95, 96, 97 or whatever blockages....Every point matters...Like life or death matters maybe...

You can imagine I am bawling my eyes out as I type.. This has been my man for 41 years. And then up pops a message a minute ago from a kid who is now a man that we love like our son...He  lives in Washington D.C. and is a Marine.   He is the BEST of the BEST. He loves Coach so much...and this is what he said to me when I explained to him our situation and that Jack was so calm.

So I will just quote Mike 

Ms. Teresa,
 "The back thing tends to complicate matters. Well, Coach ought to have a pretty good line on knowing WHO is in control. He's been face down in a hotel room for hours waiting on help. This is probably pretty easy.

So I am going to sleep a few hours on that... Please keep praying.

It is 4 AM and I may not have a reader left. 

My blogging has been so sporadic that I would certainly understand that.  Many of you are my Facebook friends so you already know this.  But in my book, there is NO SUCH THING as too much prayer. 

Jack had a stroke today. 

I am just getting home from the hospital for a few hours.  We think it was a minor one but has had several episodes in the last few months. I say episodes as we are not sure what has happened.  There will be some tests tomorrow checking his carotid artery and some other things.  

Maybe we just need a new med.  That's my prayer.  He had been doing so good.  

On this same day I found out one of my tree customers of 15 years died its been one horrible day.  I am still shaking.  

So I ask that you pray and I will update tomorrow night....I promise....

Amanda's family was at the beach last week so I will share a few pictures that bring a smile to my face.

Another day where I was reminded that LIFE CAN CHANGE IN A MOMENT  

Sunday, May 26, 2013



I am still a BLOGGER, just a very BAD one.  So many days I have sat down at the computer ready to share my current life, only to have writers block.  I have so many posts in my head, in my heart, just not typed out.   

This has been the YEAR of CHANGE in our lives.  With Amanda and Micah and the boys moving to Katy, life has been anything but normal. 

And I love NORMAL.  It is no secret to anyone that I HATE CHANGE. 

This change equaled none I had ever faced.  I have failed miserably at this test.  MISERABLY.  I have never experienced physical pain that compared to the heart pain I have had this year. 

Parker and Jack were as much a part of our family on a daily basis as Jack and I are.  And then they were gone.  Five hours away and neither like to talk on the phone.  Just imagine me on my knees praying "God, please give them a love for the phone."  Instead I would hear in the background, "Is it Grammy?"  Meaning neither wanted to have to talk.      SIGH!! then CRY! 

Parker and his Beautiful Mom

Jack and his Mom

We did get to visit in May and see Parker, who by the way will be 14 on Monday, be inducted into the National Honor Society

Wow, it took my breath away.  Fourteen years ago his teenage Mom committed herself to raise a little baby and she has done an amazing job.  

Parker and Jack (his POP) on his induction night.  Two National Honor Society Members. 

Jack is still Jack.  So many of you have emailed me and said you miss Jack stories.  I promise some soon. 

Tonight please focus on CREW.  So many of you have grown to love him through this blog.  Tuesday is his BIG SURGERY.   

Strong and READY

He is SO Precious

Instead of me explaining the surgery, I am going to use Maries words to me this week.   

They will  be reimplanting his ureters through his bladder and repairing his bladder neck. He will have stints coming out of his belly through his bladder into his kidneys. Its risky at his age. Also its risky because his quality of life rides on it. If it works to keep him from renal failure, its successful. If his kidney/bladder infections, kidneys and blood pressure decline, its unsuccessful. If unsuccessful, they will pull his ureters to the skin and create a new type of exstrophy. At around 5 years old they would build a bigger bladder. That means he would have to cath himself everyday, and I would until he could. So its really stressful. We a dreading this surgery so much more than the previous ones, besides the first. We were told to plan to stay at least a week. So who knows really. We've been told lots of things that don't ever happen. It will be a long surgery.  But we are trying to stay positive the best we can. Hope your doing well!
All my love...

We made a deal that she has permission ANYTIME to vent to me late at night or anytime for that matter....It's is so hard on her and a 24-7 job, plus three other small children ...this was one message just so that you know she is struggling....

His blood pressure is still hard to control, and they fear a stroke. His kidney disease is irreversible so there's nothing they can do for that. He is pretty miserable but still tries to play and smile, which breaks my heart. He's such a good boy, I wish I could be better for him.  I have a hard to showing my weaknesses. I'm just so far past that point I've cried to strangers lately. I love you.

This next week please ask God to give Marie strength, energy, peace, and assurance that he has Crew in his hands.  I cannot imagine handing him off to the doctors Tuesday morning.  If you get a chance send her a short note.

One more thing...I know some of you are wondering...I have been getting email...Am I still juicing? 
I have not missed a day in 18 weeks.  Even that blows my mind. 
But the good news is Jack is too. The last three weeks were filled with cardiac and pulmonary tests (just check-ups) !  His numbers were so improved that even his doctors were a little shocked. Really shocked.  His EF was up 12 points. All his breathing tests were in the doctors words, remarkably BETTER.  All I am going to say is THE ONLY THING we have done DIFFERENT is JUICE.  

I have so many other things to share.  Ashley Adams needs prayer.  One of my ELVES has a little two year old girl, Casyn Claire,  that has been diagnosed with 
Familial Mediterranean Fever.  It was confirmed at Texas Children's Hospital this week. Please pray for her.  It's an ugly disease that little is known about. 

One of my dearest friends has just started blogging...
PLEASE go and VISIT HER.  Christi has the gift of writing.  She has three posts up and they are ALL THREE GOOD.  Tell her you are my friend.  She writes nice and neat and I write all over the place in every color. 

If you have not bought Amy Grant's new CD, it is worth every dime.

        then check out below   MY HEART



Many times over my blogging years I have come to you and ask for prayer for ASHLEY.  She has never needed more than right now. 

This is a blogger that lives close to me and I have had a chance to meet. Trish is amazing Mom.   

I am not going to try and retype all her she said tonight.  Please read it here.   

I am hoping to get an update on Crew soon...He seems to be thriving. He got his helmet and now they are just waiting for upcoming surgery. 

Many have emailed me about the juicing.  I have not missed a day in almost 12 weeks.  It has become a life style change.  My taste buds have changed.  Not sure on the weight loss but plus 20.  I am only weighing once a month.  My husband weighed 201 this last week and that's the least he has weighed since before college football days...and that was a LONG TIME AGO. 
Also don't forget to go by and visit my friend who is a new blogger...Martha  She is so full of wisdom and I think a little discouraged about blogging...I want her to stay.  She is a jewel.  Tell you what, you go by and leave her an encouraging message and then email me at and I will send you a mini card package.

This morning Jack woke up so sick.  Amanda took him to the doctor and he has the FLU.  He looks so sad.   I am sad I am not there to HUG him...So now we all start on Tamiflu.  Considering we slept with him both nights he was here and I probably kissed him 1,000 times, I would imagine I am exposed.  Please pray for Pop (Jack) too that he does not get it. He sure does not need anything else now. 

I thought the flu was coming to an end.  Guess I was wrong.  He is running fever and looks so pitiful.    I just talked to Amanda and he has not been out of the bed all day.   For a FIVE year old that is BIG.

Pray that Amanda stays well.  She has so many things on her plate this week.  Parker is having some foot surgery and then next week his wisdom teeth out.  When it rains it POURS...and its literally pouring here in Shreveport now.  We are under a tornado  watch.

Thanks for praying.....and if you have not seen SAFE HAVEN, go see it...It is great. 


What a glorious weekend....I had planned to post before now, but had some taxes to work on.  Friday brought my Houston kids home for a long weekend.  Amanda and Micah had some things to do, so Parker went to his Dad's and we had JACK all to ourselves for 2 days.   HEAVEN.  We did whatever Jack wanted , whenever he wanted it.  I don't think a smile left my face.  And even though 2 Jacks', Happy and me in one bed is too many, I found myself staring at that sweet boy most of the night.  He owns my heart. 


Sunday we met up with Greg and his boys for a Chucky Cheese run and then a great meal...We missed Dana who had a previous commitment..

Micah had a date with the golf course so it was Amanda and Greg and the boys.  All of us celebrating  how much better Jack looked than the Sunday two weeks previous.  God is Good. 

          Some snapshots from the weekend....

Parker and Austin are not in love with pictures right now!!
This is Day 37 on my Juicing Journey.   Would you believe both my kids have decided to JUICE. They have both bought juicers and are starting this week.  I CRAVE juice and that Blew Their Minds.   Now Jack is loving it and I know we are taking a giant step in GETTING HEALTHY.  My juicing buddies cholesterol dropped 50 points in 30 days.  She just got the results yesterday.
We are heading to Houston next week for a work and pleasure.  The trip we were going to take before Jack got sick.  I am so looking forward to it.  Parker is having his wisdom teeth out while we are there.  I am praying he has no complications. 
A few good posts that you might enjoy reading........
Have a Great Week!!

Wednesday, February 13, 2013


I am posting this as I got some HATE comments from bloggers for talking about the juicing and not giving you enough information....Of course they did not sign them......but it was a I am posting a letter my ELF buddy and I sent to some friends here that wanted some INFORMATION.  

This is our story...

So many of you have emailed Terri and me about juicing. This is going to be my story and Terri may add a few things. She is busy getting ready for the Junior League show. I am almost scared to tell you what I know because if you know me well, you will find this very hard to believe.

After tree season and take down, Terri and I had both been battling upper respiratory infections, feeling generally YUK, no energy, and both needed to drop some weight...AND get our blood pressure down. I think we both realized we are not 30 anymore and just because we can work 12 hours a day our bodies were beginning to rebel.

So on a Sunday, a month ago, she told me she was going on a fruit and vegetable juice fast. (Number 1) I don't like fruits and vegetables, hardly know an apple from an orange and sure did not know what kale was (number 2) At church when they would ask people to raise their hands if they would commit to fast for someone sick, I would slip out to the bathroom, as I did not want to lie, I could not FAST. (just being honest) But she said "please do it with me" and "let's get healthy"!

So she started on a Sunday and I started on a Monday four weeks ago. I told one person. Mainly because I figured I would be off by Wednesday. My first questions were "do I have to give up coffee and diet coke"? She said just do what you can, she was going to drink 1 cup of coffee ....So that was my plan. Let me insert I have had a Diet Coke everyday for the last 25 or 30 years. Not 4 or 5 but at least one. And coffee was just a given. So there was no plans to give that up.

This is absolutely essential...GET A GOOD JUICER....I tried the cheap one and you will not juice long. I got the one the website we refer to often, suggested. But there are other good ones. Terri has a Sharper Image. Breville is the brand on the Reboot with Joe website and the one I bought from Best Buy. They have several models to pick from.

The produce part of the grocery store was only something I passed as on my way to cheese and crackers. I doubt Terri had ever seen me eat a vegetable other than a baked potato and we are together a lot. I really doubt if she has ever seen me eat a piece of fruit. She has seen me drink a lot of coffee, eat a lot of chicken salad, bread, cheese, crackers, potato soup, drink a lot of energy drinks, get the picture...So no one is more surprised this worked for me than her. (Insert by Terri - yes, it's a miracle)

I started off saying I would do it three days and take a day off and then three more days..and that is what I did. The fourth day I went to one of my favorite places and ate my favorite meal and called her from the parking lot and told her I could only eat half my food and it was just OK....I needed some juice. I thought that must be a fluke so I juiced for three more days and then went to my second favorite place, Cush's for my much loved chicken salad. I ate two bites of half a sandwich. Now I am scared. What if I don't like food anymore? Then I just decided to juice and see how long I could....I would eat some nuts thru the day..but I was not interested in an apple...I wanted, no I craved juice. Now please don't laugh...You all know I don't cook, but it was so therapeutic to chop the fruit and vegetables. My fridge looked like the Farmers Market...I would call Terri from the grocery store talking low and ask her what a certain thing looked like. And ginger root..."Terri, Where is it in the store?" and then I saw it....and it was so ugly.

I listed a website below that answers all the questions you could possible have and we have referred to it often. Then I would be messaging Terri with a new discovery. We have been walking several miles a couple of times of week and all we talk about is how we feel different...Not THIN, but less THICK. or "What if we have not lost a pound"? or the best one was "look at my bra....its missing two oranges", then "I could move my bra over two notches"! I had this one friend that saw me once a week and every Monday she would say "You have lost weight"! Then my clothes were getting lose..Here is the clincher. I was never hungry...well maybe a few times and my stomach never growled and I was putting more fruits and vegetables in my body than they had had in 25 years. Energy was back. I really felt and feel like I had been "rebooted"! And no you do not stay in the bathroom all day, but I have peed my brains out. Terri was a little more rigid than me but she kept telling me to do it my way...That's what I would tell you. In 30 days, I had 7 meals...Besides that I juiced all day. I could not get enough. After two weeks I went to an already scheduled doctors app. He was so impressed that he took me off 1 blood pressure med...High blood pressure runs in my family, especially in women. Last night I took mine and it was 115/72. And guess what...I have not had nor wanted one DIET COKE. They are in the fridge, I just do not want one.

Last week Jack was in the hospital for 4 days....Stress and Panic...What would I do...I should have never worried ..Terri juiced for me everyday and either put it in my fridge or brought it to the hospital. That's a friend...We had not been at the ER an hour when here she came with two full jars of juice and I was never so glad to see her.

About Thurs of last week I realized I had not had a cup of coffee all week...Hospital coffee is so gross...and when I got home I just would wake up wanting juice. Strange and I cannot explain it.

I love making up recipes...The things my fridge is filled with and what I have juiced so far are celery, carrots, kale, ginger root, kale, pineapple, grapes, blueberries, strawberries, pears, tons of cucumbers,parsley. every kind of apple, every kind of orange, tangerines, honeydew melons, peaches, spinach, kiwi, blackberries, cabbage, purple lettuce, raspberries, lemons, limes, and mangos. I probably have left some out. ALWAYS OVER CRUSHED ICE.

If you watch this movie below on Netflix you will really consider this....

During this time neither of us had weighed...We were just going by what we weighed at our last doctors app (my doctor did not make me weigh when I had just started the juice) so for both of us it had been six months...For me I knew I had gained even more. I had gradually put on 25 pounds in 2 years. Jacks stroke 2 years ago and then when Amanda's family moved to Katy last July , I probably gained 15 pounds in a few weeks just so depressed I could not function. I had no motivation..I was doing good to get up everyday. I met Mr. Depression like I had never known. To be really honest I saw a counselor for the first time in my life. So every part of my body needed a REBOOT.

It has now been a month for both of us. Terri went to the doctor yesterday and had lost 14 pounds. I woke up this morning and decided it was time to at least look at the scales. I much prefer going by my clothes...but was happy to see I had lost 11.5 pounds.
I don't call this a diet. For the first time ever I am not afraid to go out of town, to go out to eat, to go to a birthday party, (that was always my thought on diets) because the juice will be there as soon as I get home. Jack even loves it and drinks a big glass every night.

Terri knows a lot more of the technical stuff about why this is working. We will be glad to answer any questions or ask Terri's daughter in law, as Olga has been juicing for a year. She is also 35 years younger than us and weighs 120. Olga lost about 40 lbs. and still juices and eats healthy to maintain her weight.
The web sites below have taught me everything I know plus you can also get a juice recipe in your email everyday. We have also found out that a lot of people have been juicing for a long time. This is not new.

I keep thinking I am going to wake up and crave food again. In the last month all I have really craved is juice..Me drinking kale and celery makes even me laugh.

Now a word from Terri

I never imagined juicing would be for Teresa, but I must say I'm thrilled she jumped on board with me. And she hates veggies - that is before she started juicing.

Juicing on any level whether a fast, just for breakfast or any meal will give you so many wonderful benefits. The reason for the suggested fast is to allow your intestinal tract to rest from digesting solid food and to detox. Juice absorbs into your cells within 15 minutes whereas food after being cooked, chewed and digesting does not give you the same powerful nutritional benefit. The other reason to juice is you can't possible consume the volume of raw foods to get as much as you would by juicing them.

I suggest watching "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" by Joe Cross. You can watch it on Netflix, or go to this website for more info on it.
Another great film is "Hungry for Change" also on Netflix. You will be shocked to find out what our processed foods and animal products do to our health.
Watch "Food Matters".
Another great book and film is "Forks Over Knives" how to eat a more plant based diet for health.

For me I was inspired to juice and eat healthy because I watched these documentaries and read as much as I could get my hands on. Once I understood the science of food and how it affects my body I knew I had to change.

I recommend you spend at least a week preparing to juice. Watch the videos, read the blogs, shop for your juicer and supplies (no food yet). You will be more successful if you are prepared. Most every question you will have is there.

Besides your juicer you will need glass canning jars or glass containers to store your juice. DO NOT USE PLASTIC. A citrus peeler is helpful. It works best to begin juicing when you have a couple of days to spend on it maybe a weekend. I'm preparing juice every other day making enough to last. You will find what works best for you. Juice can last about 48 hours or longer in the refrigerator.

Juice the rainbow - vary your recipes, but keep the ratio 80% veg to 20% fruit. There are thousands of recipes.
So now you just have to do it. Get ready for healthy results - lower blood pressure, reduced cholesterol, stable blood sugar, glowing skin, more energy, a great sense of clarity and well being.

I am just a Random blogger. 
I think in  Random. 
I speak in Random.                   
So I blog in Random. 

First off, today is my boys birthday.  He is too OLD, which makes me a lot older.  And yet I remember vividly everything that happened on that day 39 years ago.  How does that work?  I can't remember a phone number five seconds.  Greg and his family spent the weekend in Katy with Amanda and her family.  I was so sad not to be there, but here are a few snapshots. 



Parker and Austin at Dave and Busters


I got permission to show you this next picture. I think I told you Parker has his first girlfriend. But none of us had seen her. This has been going on for several months and we were all wanting to see her. Last week I get a text of the two of them....She is a doll..I am hoping to meet her soon.


I am so proud of Greg and the man he has become.  He is the hardest worker, most loving husband, SUPER DAD, most fun Uncle, biggest giver, (you cannot out give this boy), and he loves his Mom and Dad. 

Moving on!  Jack is home from the hospital after a 4 day stay.  It turned out that he just needed a little medicine tune up.  He gave us a huge scare.  It has been 28 months since his stroke so I guess one hospital stay is not bad.  He had an upper respiratory infection along with some other things. I am so glad to have him home.  There is something about the hospital that just wears you out. 

A little update on the JUICING.  I got so many emails about it, wanting to know more.  I am almost afraid to talk about it.  Today is a month.  I don't want to say to much,
BUT IT IS WORKING!!!!!  I feel better, my clothes are loose, my rings are falling off, people that don't know what I am doing are staring to say, "You have lost weight"!  I have moved my bra snap over two notches, but I HAVE NOT WEIGHED.  My blood pressure has been so low...I have been taking it every night, just because I cannot believe it.  The last two nights its been 115/76.  So I know I am doing something good for my body.  And for the first time ever I am not "scared of the diet"!  I am not afraid of going off, going out of town, eating out..IT has just become a new way of life.  I CRAVE the JUICE.  I have not had a diet coke since I have been on it and had no desire.  Now I am juicing all through the day and eating a meal of whatever sounds good.  I just don't have the appetite to eat very much.  I don't understand it.  I have not wanted sweets at all.  And that is so not me.. 
So its a mystery.  My stomach has never growled and I am not hungry.  Some of you may no more about juicing and can explain it to me. 

An update on Crew...He is better but continues to fight one infection after another.  So keep him on your prayer list.  His sweet Mom stays exhausted. 

If you are one of those waiting on a card box, they are coming soon. 
They are packed and ready to mail.  I just cannot seem to get to the Post Office.

happy valentine day to all my blog friends
with love,

In my last post we were leaving for Houston for little Jack's  birthday party.  That never happened. 

Friday morning Jack became sick with what he thought was just upper respiratory infection.  He had stayed well all thru flu season.  To make a long story short he went to a Quick Care, his chest Xray looked OK and they gave him steroids and an antibiotic. 

Saturday morning we had planned to get up and leave if he felt better.  He felt much worse, but still did not want to go to the ER.  He hates the hospital.  He continued to get worse all day and I was getting more scared. 

He could not breath and was getting weaker by the hour.  He was adamant about not calling the ambulance...So Greg came and took him to the ER but by this time he could barely walk and was dehydrated and looked horrible.  Every breath was a struggle.  

He was CRITICAL when we arrived at the ER.  The next XRay showed congestive heart failure and a COPD flare-up complicated by the upper respiratory infection.  So today has been horrible. 

They admitted him and started him  on IV Lasix and cortisone.  By late tonight I think he is stable and looking much better.  Please be in prayer for him.  He is our rock....I am really too tired to connect two words together but knew my sweet blog friends would pray.  I will keep you posted....Teresa

one picture from Jacks party.......


Thursday, January 31, 2013


I am leaving town to celebrate my sweet Jacks 5th birthday....then we are spending some days with the kids next week.

I am even getting to go to Beth Moore's Tuesday night Bible Study in Houston....I have always wanted to!  Plus a few more FUN things.  

And then there is the SUPER BOWL which I have a love/hate relationship with...A great game, but the end of the SEASON.    

BUT I just had to put out a prayer request for Crew.....I am just sending the message Marie just sent me.....

Marie Morris-White
He just stopped a really strong antibiotics yesterday and yesterday afternoon he started running a fever, and vomiting. So this went on until this morning at the Dr. They don't know where the vomiting is coming from but he has a worse ear infection then before! So it could be a kidney infection. He tested negative for flu. So started extremely strong antibiotics and anti vomiting medicine. He is completely lethargic and has slept all day with high fevers
    So please send up a prayer for him......
      Now a few snapshots of the BIRTHDAY BOY and a couple of cute ones of GRAY!

      JACK and ELLA
      GRAY the COWBOY
      I will have some great pictures after a SUPER HERO party.   And for the record I am still juicing and IT IS WORKING....Better get packed...

      Have a great weekend.

      Monday, January 21, 2013


      That is probably the worst title I have ever had for a post since I began blogging!!!

      FIRST OFF the Winner of the Card box is Janet at Gray Cardigan!    

      I am finally finished taking down trees, well all but mine....

      I have so many cute pictures....but for some reason for two weeks blogger will not let me load pictures...

      ANYONE ELSE having trouble? or SUGGESTIONS for what I might me at  I am so frustrated fooling with it.  I will send you a box of cards if someone can give me some tips.  I have
      never had a problem before. 

      So excited that two brothers are going to meet in the SUPER BOWL.  Neither were my original teams, but I think it will be a great game...The play off games were so good.

      Even though I have not blogged recently I have been reading blogs and so enjoyed catching up. 

      Of course I have been pinning... and have just a few pins....almost 100,000!  It is such a relaxing thing to me. 

      I spent most of December sick with bronchitis.  I took mega meds. A couple of weeks ago Terri, my ELF, and I were both looking for ways to get healthier and did some study on juicing..

      For the past 7 days I have been on a juice fast (she is on her 9th day) and I am not hungry.  Never in my life have I had cravings just leave. I have not been hungry and have had more energy than in months.  I have had one meal in  seven days. If you knew me well, you would know that is a miracle.  So I am encouraged I may have found something to get some fruits and vegetables in my body in mass.  
      I hesitated about even blogging about it, but I know so many people juicing in some form or another, that  I decided it might be something you have some tips on.

      My doctor even took me off a blood pressure pill today and we are going to relook at it in three months.

      In a week we celebrate Jack's 5th birthday.  I still miss the kids everyday.  I guess I always will.  He is having a SUPER HERO PARTY at the cutest place in HOUSTON. 


      Have a great week!!

      Friday, January 4, 2013


      I don't get to do much fun in December so after keeping the boys a week, before I start taking houses down,  we brought the boiys home to Katy yesterday....Micah suggested we take a three day trip to San Antonio.

      I got on Priceline and got a 4/5 Star Hotel on the  River walk for a GREAT price.  So this morning in a dreary rain we drove a few hours and have been having fun all afternoon and night...Nothing like a little GET AWAY with family.   

      Parker got to bring a friend so he was a HAPPY CAMPER and the RIVER WALK Center had a DISNEY STORE, so JACK is now A VERY HAPPY CAMPER AND I am 135.00 poorer...but of the joy in saying whatever you want.  That's what Grammy is for. 

      Amanda and I got chair massages and then shopped all the sales.  I still love to pamper my girl, though her husband does a REALLY good job. 

      We found a great little Mexican restaurant...super good. Now we are back in our rooms and Jack, Micah and Amanda are having a drink at the bar and watching A&M  play. I am catching up on blogs .....and much more the bed watching the game.   The boys are in the next room playing XBOX..

      Tomorrow we have a full day planned and maybe a Cinderella ride in the the beautiful decorated carriages.  Perfect weather. 

      For some reason blogger will not let me add pictures tonight....Maybe tomorrow......

      I am so trying to get back in the groove of blogging....

      Tomorrow  I will announce winner of card box.
