Family visiting

My mom came today to spend a few days with us. She lives about an hour from us and she'll be here until early next week. Mom, Madison (our youngest granddaughter) and I are going to drive to Little Rock tomorrow morning to pick up our oldest granddaughter, Kimberleigh. She's coming to stay with us for a few days as well and she and Madison are barely able to contain themselves! Those two are more like sisters than cousins. While we're down in the central part of the state, I promised Madison that I'd take her shopping for school clothes. She is so excited to start Kindergarten this year and she just got her room/teacher assignment this week. She'll also be taking jazz dance class this year in addition to ballet and tap. This child is only 5 years old and she has more on her schedule than I do! LOL

I'm hoping that I can get some pictures of my WIP's up sometime this coming week. I'll also have to post some pics of the girls doing their things, whatever that may be.

My First Post

Ok, so I am now doing something that I thought I'd never do...joining the world of blogging. Am I crazy? Well, I guess that would depend on who you ask, but that's never stopped me before.

Well, where do I start? I'm sure it won't matter too much, considering that no one other than my wonderful mom and perhaps my equally wonderful mother-in-law will be reading this. When I read other people's blogs their lives seem so interesting. I'll just say right off the bat that my life isn't interesting. I am a stay-at-home wife, step-mom and Grammy. I have the best husband in the world, 3 grown step-kids that I love and get along with and ("my" girls) 2 granddaughters that mean the world to me. I guess we'll just have to wait and see how interesting this will be in the long run. If nothing else, then my mom and MIL can see what I've been up to in quilting class.
