I so hope I get my ROBOT back today! Mine blew out on Christmas Eve and poor Crystal had to open Lincare to let me get some tanks and let me borrow this portable! This one is made for transporting people and has no holder. I am not wanting to have this next week when I keep the babies, It won't be easy to carry Ames as I carry this! I have a strap so I can put on my shoulder but it is bulky although very light.

Some pictures of the snow Monday, it didn't last long.

A few of my favorite things

These are 3 of my favorite gifts this year. I always enjoy the VWs I get from Twila and Keith, my Mom gives me wonderful gifts like this statue and the CUTE Gamecock Gnome from Gina.
I took my last chemo today, will start Cellcept end of month, it is another strong medicine with a lot of side effects but I made it through 12 chemos without much... just gaining 20 lbs which Dr H says not to worry about.
It snowed yesterday but didn't last, took a few bird pictures I will post later.

Well Christmas is over, Today was a nice quiet day at my MIL's, It was just my family and my niece, Noel and her new husband, Dylan. Noel lived with us when she was in elementary school and I love her so! My SIL went to Kentucky :0)!!! Since both the boys are in Army and my other niece is in some trouble it was a nice peaceful NO DRAMA time!
It was nice with my family, we rented the lodge which was smart, I had some stress because my portable air tank blew a seal and Crystal had to come get me a tank to borrow and it didn't have a holder and didn't last as long so I am having to use the heavy tank and I forgot the stocking and my camera and didn't get to visit with my Grandmother, that all started to get to me but I remembered it's all about a Baby and sharing time with family while I can.
Les will be out of work awhile, he has a cane to use and has a lot of pain and trouble getting around. I have to get disability paper filled out, I don't know if he is going to take me to my last chemo or if I will just go myself. Gina is working.
Jeremy is on the phone now, he just posted a video for me to watch so I will go do that.
Merry Christmas all!

I have to say this is the most "UNChristmasy" holiday ever! Had to call ambulance for Les Monday night and the ER was a terror! He is still in hospital with a pinched nerve in his spine, Might get to come home tomorrow. The stress hit me this morning, I have so much I need to do... have not wrapped gifts, House was a mess and still have calendars to do!
Charli was a good girl in the Christmas play though and I only have a couple calendars left, got most of my cleaning done, Les usually does most of it because I do not have the breath to do it but he had spent most of his day off helping his Mom do her Christmas shopping so I had to. I hate that he didn't get to see the play even though it was boring.

I am so glad Gina got the 'crafty gene'! She , Trey and Charli made a gingerbread house, complete with the family on the back!
Very busy trying to get the church calendars done! Four down, eight to go!

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

These are pages from Kevin'd Book at church, His is the first I have finished, I used Raspberry Roads JAVA JOE Kit so it would have a masculine feel to it. His Mom wanted pictures of his friends at church, I know he will be tickled when he get it!

Dear Santa

Working on calendars for church, I have 12 to do, this one is Tommy's, he has a toy drive and right now has over 2000 toys in a warehouse to help kids in need, I thought it would be very nice to give him Christmas all year! These are top page, bottom has calendar. I used Cathy K's wonderful Dear Santa to do these as the fun colors are fun for all year!

I made $70 at our Craft Show today, I had really hoped to do much better and raise more money for church, I don't know how much yet as I had that in a donation box and didn't open it. The fellowship was great though and I enjoyed spending time with my friends!
Bad weather is heading this way, the cold is so hard for me to breathe but we are having a memorial service for Papa Hurst tomorrow.

Wednesday, December 8, 2010

I have to speak at church December 26 on the subject "What did you give Jesus for Christmas?" I have a couple of ideas floating in my head and will share but what would you say?

Tuesday, December 7, 2010

I have so got to spend some time at home and get stuff done!! Today I kept the kids all day then ate at Gina's (Les cooked) so it was 8:00 when we got home! I have the beads to finish the last few things before the craft show Saturday! I keep them here tomorrow, I ran out of air today but Les brought my back up. I still can't do any crafting while they are here, I spend most time holding Ames and Charli has to be paid attention to. She says, "I'm talking to you, Meme!"
I still have a dozen calendars to make!

Sunday, December 5, 2010

Thirty years ago Les and I had a small wedding, today we went to Greenville and made a Bumble for Charli and Puppy for Seth. Then we spent time at Harbor Freight, A.C. Moore and ate Chinese at Ni Hao. It was nice, we always have a great time just going by ourselves.

Saturday, December 4, 2010

I am behind in putting pictures to my computer, will have to edit, I guess.
took Gina and the kids with us to Connie Maxwell Christmas Lights, Charli really loved the horse and buggy ride! This is her 3rd year but Gina had never ridden before. Tomorrow Les is taking his Mom and I am going with the kids to Hollywild. We have a group going, should be fun!

Another GREAT Blog!

Les can talk today BUT gout in hand and it is swollen. Had so much fun playing with kids today, Charli is so funny! She sings Crazy on You by Heart, now WHO could have taught her that song?

Monday, November 29, 2010

Les had to go to the doctor today, he has a sinus infection and inflamed vocal cords. It was also my chemo day, one more and I will be done! I had to call the insurance company to see if they would approve Cellcept, the next drug I have to take, If I get it at the pharmacy I will have to pay $150 a month but I can get 90 days for $55 mail order, that's not a hard decision, LOL!

Our friend Ronny Holder passes away around noon yesterday. How sad to lose a loved one on a holiday! Since Dad died on Father's Day it hasn't been the same, I can only imagine Thanksgiving! Charli loved him, he drove the train at Emerald Farms and would ask her, "you ready to ride the train?"
I will post pictures from yesterday later, my MIL is coming to get me so I can get my bloodwork done and we are going to Hancock. I slept until 9:00, this is the first time in over 20 years I did no Black Friday shopping. I finally decided to use the cart at Wal-Mart because my oxygen drops so no crowds for me!

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

We have had several people in church with problems... we lost Papa Hearst, Ronny who drives the train at Emerald Farms had a stroke Sunday and is now at Hospice, I picked this picture of Charli riding the train, she likes Mr Ronny!
Then Carolynn's Mom Florence is in hospital with double pneumonia. I am sure this is going to be a rough Thanksgiving for them all but I pray they will get through by using their faith!

Monday, November 22, 2010

Had fun putting up my tree with Charli yesterday! We also make candy pretzels and she made candle canes with chenille stems and beads. We also took her to see a couple of Christmas lights and when she got home Trey and Gina had her yard all decorated! She ws so excited! It was a perfect day!

Friday, November 19, 2010

Found some great jewelry tutorials!
I am going to watch her videos!!! Love the crocheted necklace!

Thursday, November 18, 2010

Charli wore her Princess dress when she came over today, I love her imagination!
I have 9 crafters so far for my Craft Show! I need to count the tables at church and see if I can add 1 more or not. That really is good since I got it approved last night! There will be FUDGE, gift baskets, hair bows, jewelry, lighted wine bottles and bricks, birdhouses, painted gourds and items and my heating pads. We are also having baked goods. I also am getting an ad free on the radio thanks to Les who knows the guy!

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Had an enjoyable time with my Angels today! Charli played with her Ply dough over and hour! She kept saying we were making a 'craft' She also told me that we were a PAMPIRE, she love vampires and says Drac-U-A leaving out the 'L'. That replaces the Pirates from the summer, LOL!
She is also in love with James from Big Time Rush.

Monday, November 15, 2010

Goodness it's chilly today! It has been so unseasonably warm then today it's cool. Les is heating me some soup from the freezer and that should help. I am about to go to the Dr. for my check up and xrays in a few minutes. Starting tomorrow will be keeping the kids again ;D because Gina is starting back to working 5 days

Sunday, November 14, 2010

Lately every time I go to Gina's Charli says, "did you see my Pumpkin, Meme?" I assure her I have so I thought I would post a picture :D
This year I have started watching USC football and really enjoying it! They are #1 in the SEC and last night they crushed Florida 36 to 14. I was babysitting and since Les doesn't watch I went in Gina's room and Ames ate and slept and Charli cuddled up beside me (She says go, GameCOPS) It was nice, Les played hide and seek with her and turned on ICarly but she is Meme's girl!

Thursday, November 11, 2010

Charli went to see the play Dracula with her Mommy, Uncle Ty and Taylor and so today she wanted to draw the picture from the program. She likes to watch scary things just like her Mommy, she calls them silly scary.
She was very good today while I kept them, Ames gave me some nice pictures, smiling.
We took her to see The Men of Distinction uptown. They were very good playing a mix of music from shag to Sinatra. Charli loved it all and had a fun time playing with a little boy.

Susan Terry gave me this machine and I am so thrilled about it! I will really be happy to learn to use the embroidery part! I might even learn to like sewing with this!

Tuesday, November 9, 2010

Today was so beautiful we went to the Shoals to let Charli feed the ducks, she had a terrific time! I love to picnic there, we used to go when the kids wee young.
Also we ate supper with then and Charli sang me songs she made up about roses, pumpkins and monsters, she is so funny and has a great imagination!

Monday, November 8, 2010

This is my 650th post! Had a fun day today, Les & I ate lunch with Kathie, Janette Knight, Gina and the kids. We also rekeyed Kathie's house. I started a scarf with some gorgeous yarn I got at Hancock and will be done with it tomorrow.

Sunday, November 7, 2010

I ended up selling 5 sets of my heating pad/covers, 1 taggie blanket and several earrings for a total of $155 sales so that's not too bad! I am going to do more shows in the next weeks hopefully with my sisters. I have warned people what heating pads I don't sell will be Christmas gifts, LOL!
Went with the kids to see Megamind and Red, at the Drive-in, had a ball, Charli sat with us until she got sleepy, she spend some time putting change in speaker cover, I told Les we would have punished our kids but thought it was funny with her! She stopped when I asked her too and tried to get it out but said her fingers were too fat, LOL! She also spilled M&Ms on floor but Les will just have to vaccuum! <3>

Friday, November 5, 2010

My MIL helped me at my booth today (she is sitting) she sold 2 scarves, I did better with 3 heating pad sets, 1 jewelry set and 5 pairs of earrings. Several didn't sell anything so I did pretty well. I pray we will have lots more luck tomorrow!
Charli wanted to come to my house but I stayed almost all day there, I told her I would see her tomorrow. She is so imaginative! When I kept her yesterday she said the boys from Big Time Rush, Carlos and James, she told them to sit beside us and she 'cooked' them a meal. She then said she wanted to marry James and when I did the 'Here comes the bride' music she started to prance around, she really makes me so happy! I think she likes them over Justin =0)
