It just dawned on me that after all the posts about hubby's oral surgeries, I never showed a picture of him smiling with his new smile. So that's what I'm doing here......meet my hubby, aka Bumpa, with his beautiful smile! If you click on the photo I believe it shows a larger image in a new window where you can see his smile better. Anyway this is the love of my life...I know, kinda corny but that's what he is.
I've not posted here in almost a week and decided I better come up with something so people didn't worry about me. It's just that I haven't been feeling very creative and I think you must all get bored reading about the daily happenings in my life so I started some spring cleaning instead of posting. So when spring finally arrives, if it ever does (and I have some doubts) I will be ready to spend some time outdoors sitting in my lawn chairs watching the birds or reading; after the gardening is done, of course!
Our little Amber called last night and she will be turning 12 on March 17th and asked if she could have her birthday party here. When I asked her what kind of a party she wanted to have, she said a sleep over and "my mom won't let me have it here 'cause we don't have enough room!" I then asked how many girls she wanted to have over and when she told me only three, I told her of course she can have her party here. This isn't the normal thing for grandparents to do, but Amber lived with us for the first 5 years of her life and we were her legal guardians; and when a child lives in your house and you are the primary care giver 24/7 they become almost like your own children. Not that we love her any more than we love any of the other 13 grandchildren, but the love is of a different nature, if that makes any sense. She and we feel like this is her home too, and she will always have a place here if she wants or needs it.
