What Joy...What Fun!

Eden trying to hide out from all the holiday hoopla

I am sitting here this morning in silence...ahhh what a treasured moment LOL. Quiet is not what our house hold has been of late =)  Meg is out for the morning dropping Eden off at preschool, and doing a little shopping.  They moved in with us I think it was Nov 7th, so we are going on week four.  This weekend is the scheduled move into their new home if all the inspection stuff goes well this week.  It has been so great bonding with our precious little grand-babies.  They wake up first thing in the morning and cry Nana, Pappa Danny...it is so cute.  I am especially glad to have connected more with baby Avey.  She loves getting cuddles and giving them. We retreat into my bedroom every once in awhile and watch Little Bear together while she sits on my lap.  Ahhh...

Meg and I have gotten into a routine around here and things are going fairly smoothly...but let me tell you about Thanksgiving.  A holiday I will never forget...

Let's start in the great room, my son Josh and grand puppy Frances were residing here

Moving on to the study...which my sister Chris dubbed "The French Room" with it's sliding french doors.  

Her lovely accommodations include a double high blow up bed =)  And do notice the birdcage...yes we had her bird with Josh's birddog Frances in the house...Glory to God in the highest nothing tragic happened!
Upstairs loft...lots of overflow 

First bedroom occupied by Meg, husband and baby Avey
Bonus room/Art Studio occupied by Eden and Jenna Dear

What a mess to put on the World Wide Net  :>)

I think my favorite part during the whole week was looking over at my sister every once in awhile and we would both burst out laughing hysterically...what joy...what fun!

Blogger is being ridiculous and won't let me up load from my computer, says my picasso account is full...so I guess I will continue the saga later =)

Knee Deep in Fun!

This is what my table won't look like this year...hehehe

"I hope that you're still knee-deep in fun because you've not be heard from in eight days! :D Sounds wonderful to me...it's wonderful to have extended lengths of time to be together. "

A sweet comment from Vee, wondering if I am still having fun.  So I thought I would get in a quick response and update for all.  We are going on I think week three of Babies in the House.  Auntie Christina (my sister) and Uncle Pat pulled into town today.  They are now residing in the "French Room" as Chris has dubbed it.  My husband's study on the main floor with french sliding doors.  They have a brand new queen size blow up mattress on the floor for beddy time.  Puddin Toes can't figure out why they have their own special room =)  P.T. and baby sis are in the two up stairs bedrooms with mom and dad.  Jenna dear is flying in Tuesday night.  I have a rolling single bed under the upstairs daybed that will be her sleeping quarter in the loft.  On Wednesday Josh is coming with doggy Frances.  Josh will have his own new blow up bed in the great room on the main floor since he goes to bed the latest, and I guess Frances will be in the laundry room.  Our house is a mear 2400 sq. ft. But we are all cramming in here.  Don't worry though I plan on taking video and pictures of all The Rutherford Family Camp Granada experiences.  LOL

Am I still knee deep in fun....oh my YES!  As long as we all keep laughing about it.  I have doled out Thanksgiving for everyone to make something.  Jenna started whining about a pot luck Thanksgiving and then saw everyone else jumping in and  finally gave in under pressure and decided to make her Grandmother's deviled eggs.   I think I have 15 for Thanksgiving dinner.  I am breaking many a Rutherford tradition here, but what the heck I might even go all the way  and buy paper plates...nice ones of coarse =}

Meg and Ty are in a whirlwind as the last but hectic and final details of their house are underway.  I was out all day planting...I am their landscape designer/worker bee.  I had some great helpers, but my body is protesting =/  Seriously this is a season that will never come our way again, and I am catching every hug and kiss, every squeeze and love that I can hold on to and treasure for many years to come.  I even quit cooking and cleaning, and threw Costco pizza at everyone tonight. You have no idea how far I have come  =)))))

Oh we are still in the middle of pool hoopla...first bad thing happened today...I do need some prayer and help from God on this one.  The pipes and mechanical stuff are smack dab in the middle of my walk way instead of up against the house where I thought they were putting it.  Contractor is saying he can't make it work any other way...yikes I need a solution by tomorrow !!!!

If I don't get back on here till then...everyone of you dear folks have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!!!!

Babies in the House!

We have got babies in the house. Meg, Ty and babies are moved in for the next two weeks till their house is completed. But no worries Nana has a few tricks up her sleeve for lots of fun an entertainment =) BABIES R US 

         Meg's house in progress
The girls are so sweet. Lots of fun memories are being made.  Dan and I are constantly cracking up at our 3 year old grand daughter's expressions and comments. She is such a little communicator. Little Avey on the other hand is full of cuddles and love.  They are keeping us busy, but they couldn't be any more charming  Pray our energy keeps up with all the fun!

Our pool in progress

I guess you could say we are in a construction zone!
