Summer Sale/ Lemonade Stand/ Shed Wonders!

 My sis Penny and I had our 2nd yearly shabby sale.. One reason I decided to stick it out with the
high 90's and one day 108 was for my granddaughter Londyn's Lemonade Stand. I had it custom
built for her and promised she could have it during my sale. She was so tickled about it. I added the
baskets and  the open closed sign. I need to find some more fake lemons and limes and I think it will
be finished. There is a cute cash drawer in the back. It also has wheels which makes it great for moving around.
 For two days straight we worked in the hot sheds, pricing and staging. So much work as we were not
very organized this year. Last year I made cute stamped tags and had a lot more furniture. As I look at what we had I think we had some really cute stuff. Some of it actually made its way back in the shed as I just couldn't part with it.

 My friend Heidi scored these treasures above. I love seeing each persons wants and how we were
able to accommodate so many.
 The items above were some I just couldn't part with. How cute would this rusty pail be with some fall mums in it.

When we bought this house a couple years ago one of the reasons was these sheds. I wanted to start a business and even named it The Shabby Hoot! It has a door that connects the two where I could stock one side and restock the other through the doors. They were never completely finished and my hope this year is to get electricity to them. As much as I would love to do that I am just not sure at this time this is the direction I am going in. I think I will get the one with the windows finished and make it my very own shabby space. Clean it up a little and have flowers next year in the window etc. While I have many years to go and sound like my mother I think when I am retired this would be a great hobby for me. To buy and sale at my leisure. At the moment I will enjoy the shed being empty. Who am I kidding my trunk was full and already unloaded into it. Enjoying the rest of the summer. Blessings Pam

Harlow Jaine Arrives!

 Meet Miss Harlow Jaine born July 13th 7:39 2016 6lbs 10 ozs 20"L Head 13" chest 121/2! She is our second granddaughter. Our daughter Jordan is doing well. While she labored for almost 24 hrs she was quite the trooper. Harlow's name was my fathers name. He spelled it Harlo. She added a w at the end.  My dads middle name was Jerald so its neat that she kept the H and the J! She didnt progress much and stayed at a 1 for a month. They decided to induce as Jordan battled continued migranes without relief. During the labor process she didnt progess either. We joked that baby Harlow taking after my dad was being stubborn as he was lol. Londyn her big sister will be 7 1/2 on the 30th of this month wanted to be involved. She was a trooper too. Jordan went to the hospital around 7:00 am on the Tuesday the 12th. I took Londyn up around 11:00 we didnt leave until 4:45 am when we decided we should all get some rest. They were trying several things and even discussed C-section. Getting to bed at 5:30 am and receiving a call around 7:30 am that she was at a 7 and we needed to get to hospital 15 to 20 mins away. Pampa, Londyn and I ran as fast as we could. I called my sis Penny Edwards and at that moment she reminded me God had a plan and it was going to be what it was. Such a comfort. I text Jordan and said go for it. We missed it by 15 to 20 mins. She went from a 7 to a 9 with in mins or seconds. Dr Lee who delivered Londyn said you know better. Londyn was born so fast.

 I am so proud of my daughter and my family. God does have a plan for each min and second. It all worked out the way it was suppose too! We are so blessed. We have enjoyed several days and nights with Londyn. She is super excited without a ounce of jealousy, she is going to be a great big sister. It is so surreal to me. Two granddaughters. God is good and I am beyond grateful and blessed.

Harlow has some Jaundice and was suppose to be released today, however her parents opted to have it nipped in the butt today so will stay one more night. That means we get another night with Londyn its a win win for us. Welcome baby Harlow...

Baby Shower! 6 Weeks to go!!!

 It all started with a few weeks of mind prep and than details towards the end. It came together nicely with only a few minutes of sprinkles. I was so happy with the outcome and the out pour of love for my daughter and new granddaughter due July 16th.

 Having searched pinterest for days I came up with some really cute ideas. Followed through and was
pretty impressed with myself. I had a great co host in my sons girlfriend Jessica. She made so much food from scratch. I wish I would of taken photo's. I was to busy visiting but was thankful to have invited my friend/photographer Michelle who captured several pictures.

My daughter's fiances mother supplied the cake and the decorator. Thanks for that Carol!

 While gammy(me) supplied the coming home outfit Pampa had a custom shirt made for Londyn. It was a huge hit.

 My sis Penny came and helped and I couldn't of done it without her. She was sure to make sure I sat and enjoyed the gift opening and a plate of food along with several others.

I am so very blessed for all who came and supported Jordan in the arrival of the new baby girl. I cant wait to meet her. God is good. Blessings Pam

Easter/Spring Photo's

 Easter 2016, its amazing what Iphones can do now with pictures. My daughter Jordan
took some pics of the kids on the Easter weekend. I love all these photos and want to
turn them into some blk/wht canvases for my wall.

 She loves her older brother Tison so much. He is 9 and she is 7 with a sister on the way
in July.

 I absolutely adore this picture above of her laughing. She always has a smile on her face,
and is such a happy girl.
She got a trim and side bangs and was just so happy. She makes me so happy. I am
starting to plan the baby shower for her baby sister due in July. Time is flying by. Hope
you all had a Happy Easter. Blessings Pam
