This would be the most perfect room
for my little prince and princess
when they stay overnight. They aren't dog beds are they?!?

red sox and the sandbox

My brother and sister-in-law gave
Red Sox tickets to their nieces and
their husbands/boyfriend for Christmas this year.
(I love this pic of my girls with "Wally!")
Thanks to Darnell McDonald, the Red Sox rookie,
for making the night at the ballgame SO memorable!
The Sox snapped a 5 game losing streak and won 7-6. :)

While they were at the game, Grampie and I had charge of the two munchkins. :)

We had such a good time,
it's hard to decide
who enjoyed themselves more!

All I know is, neither of our two
sweet darlins'
wanted to leave.
and I just can't get enough of their
sweet hugs and kisses!

My last little chick flew the nest on Sunday.

she's not just a waitress

I have lots of Easter pics to share later,
but I thought I'd put in a plug
for my first-born (of three) daughter's
new blog.
She's a great writer with
a HUGE sense of humor
Oh, no, she's not just a waitress!
Have yourself a cuppa java
and take a look!

he lives!

He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.
Matthew 28:6aI serve a risen Savior, he's in the world today;
I know that he is living whatever men may say;
I see his hand of mercy; I hear his voice of cheer,
And just the time I need him, he's always near.
Rejoice, rejoice, O Christian,
Lift up your voice and sing.
Eternal hallelujahs to Jesus Christ the king!
The hope of all who seek him,
The help of all who find,
None other is so loving, so good and kind.

He lives, he lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me
Along life's narrow way.
He lives, he lives, salvation to impart!
You ask my how I know he lives?
He lives within my heart.
