Banjo Boy turns 21! Yes 21!

Good beautiful February 23rd evening folks.  It's been a while and I was missing blogging.  I've been a little sad today, my baby turned 21 years old.  As I worked and it would cross my mind, I would almost take a deep breath and gasp a little.  Hey, it might sound silly but I just can't believe it.

In a lot of ways Banjo Boy is a carbon copy of his daddy Builder Man.  In a lot of ways they are opposites.  May he bring as much joy to the rest of my life as he has for the past 21 years.

Poor Poor Baby Dolls

Poor poor Baby (Beebee), she talks if her tummy is pressed so she has to stay in the car and can't go in church.  Poor poor Lollipop (Oeepop) she gets drug around by her pigtail through the dirt and grass, but she can go into church with us because she doesn't talk.   

It's probably not so bad being a 2 1/2 years old's favorite dolls.  You might get drug around by your hair, but it's out of love.

Just A Few Pics To Share

The Miniature Cowgirl is growing way too fast.  Holidays are coming and going way too fast.  Do you feel like everything is spinning and spinning faster and faster? 

We've had beautiful weather here lately in between some rain.  Nothing too cold and frosty so far and here we are heading way too fast towards the end of January. 

That's why Valentine's Day is already on my mind.  Of course the fact that it's all in our faces in every store we walk in doesn't help.

This darling 2 1/2 year old child from God has my heart.   Her favorite things are horses (real and My Little Pony), Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Doc McStuffins, playing dolls with Nana (me), and food.  She could live off of bread and fruit snacks if we would let her.  She loves going to Sunday School and church with Nana and our weekly grocery shopping trips.  Her and I are just about bestest friends.

Play-Doh playin' CoWgirL

Who knows, she may grow up to create great sculptures and become famous and rich.  But we won't get ahead of ourselves, she's basically just learning to roll snakes.

It makes for a great activity on a yucky rainy day when the slide, swing, and trampoline are wet.

Final Prepping

Final to do lists, final buys, final prepping.  I want to be able to relax when I get home sweet home Monday from grocery shopping since I don't have to work again until after Christmas. 

I enjoy sitting down and making out my cards listening to Christmas music. 

When I'm home for the day, I love the lights out, Scentsy fragrances filling our little home, and Christmas movies or music.  I can't wait to bake my Red Velvet cake, bake sugar cookies with the Miniature Cowgirl, and sip on hot cocoa.  Well to be honest, probably more coffee sipping than hot cocoa sipping.

Naughty or Nice

The Miniature Cowgirl is trying so hard to be less naughty these days and more nice.

Of course, she's always an angel in my eyes.  

And as you can see in the above picture,  it's time to put the camera down and let her go play.

I Just Want To Sit and Sip CoFFee

I love to be able to stop, breath, and enjoy.  I just worked six days in a row, I didn't mind it because I knew my employer was short handed and needed me.  And they did appreciate it so much.  But now, the next few days are all mine.  Mine to stop, breath, and enjoy.

I am not even ready for Christmas.  I am way behind schedule and the running around trying to meet a deadline is my least favorite part of this whole beautiful celebration.  I am not a shopper so if I could just sit here at home and sip my hot coffee or cocoa I'd be just fine with whatever sweet sappy Christmas movie was currently on.  

Rufus Jack and my sweet Builder Man both really missed me last week when I was working every day.  It's pretty nice to know you're not taken for granted and those that normally depend on you miss you when you're gone.  

Are you ready for Christmas yet?  Are you like me, you'd rather be able to just sit and cherish the wonder of this beautiful day we celebrate our Jesus Christ and just relax relax relax?
