Well girls....the snow has arrived to my mountain top...this is my driveway this is Sunny California ??? well not where I live no laying on the beach for me here girls !!! Today is also a great day for birthdays in my family...My oldest daughter Barbra is 49 today...don't tell her I gave her age away tho..but I so remember that great day back in 1959 as I was scared and only 15 years old..and had not a clue as to how to be a Mama...Seems like I had just packed away my "Tiny Tears" doll and now I had one with real Tears and messy diapers (before pampers) to play with for the rest of my life...and this one I couldn't just thrown in my toy box when I got tired of playing with it...OH for the "Tiny Tears" days when I wanted to sleep and she wanted to eat every 2 hours...and I would be trying to feed her and falling asleep on the job!!! and we won't even get into all those diapers...that had to be rinsed out and washed every day and hung on the clothes line to dry...I called it "White sails in the wind" just waiting to dry so I could fold them all...nowadays new Mama's have not a clue about washing diapers making formula from scratch. sterilizing all those baby bottles...and rinsing out poo diapers.. Which brings me to the other great birthday today... My Great Grand daughter Kyra Shea...finally decided at 12;49 am that it was time for her to made her appearance into our world YAHOO!!! she weight in at 6 lbs 12 ozs and is 20 1/2 inches long...She and her mama Heather are doing great and she is already nursing like a little Pig...My daughter Gina (grandma) has pictures on her cell phone and promised to send them to me when she gets off work today...and she better or I'll put Coal in her Christmas stocking this year...and Yes I still make Christmas stockings for my girls...talk about being spoiled rotten..that's still the one thing they still love from Mom at Christmas...I'll be in a nursing home still doing this for my girls... I bet Heather will have those Pamper thing with Kyra.. Hope all of you have a great and blessed day as for me its been great so far...what a Christmas present God has given me !!!

THE BEST AND MOST BEAUTIFUL THING'S IN LIFE...CANNOT BE SEEN OR TOUCHED...BUT FELTED IN THE HEART !!! HELEN KELLER CA. 1928
Dear Mama, God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be.
So his put his arms around you and whispered "Come to me"
We grateful eyes I watched you pass away, Althought I loved you dearly I could not make you stay.
A Golden heart stopped beating hard working hands at rest.
God broke my heart to prove to me he only takes the best.
My Mama ~ 5/2/07. I miss your Lo♥e every day Mama!!
