The Awe of Twins Bond

My nephew and his wife just had twins and I am in awe at this picture.  I have twin grandsons but I have never seen a picture quite like this one.  They are only 3 weeks old and spent the first two weeks in the hospital because they were premies.  And although they slept in their own beds in the hospital, if they try to separate them now they twitch and cry.  Put them together and they fall fast asleep.

This picture seems to say "Hi Bro, You are my Best Friend"  Love this picture!  I just can't get over the eye contact, the fact that he is touching his arm and the smile on his face!  Wow the bond of twins!

Trying to Catch Up

I am so late on posting everything!  My back is giving me havoc so I am trying to catch up tonight on everything.
First I promised to post a pic of the surprises that Barb and Laura got in their giveaway package so here is what they got.  Thanks Barb for sending the pic.LOL  I made them some flower seed pillows and flower seed pack pokes.

Next I got my Annies from   Darlene at Three D Designs and they are soooooo adorable!!!  The picture does not do them justice!    I wanted to wait and post the pics after I  displayed them in my house but at the rate I'm going with my back I don't know when that will be.(frown)  Darlene is so talented!  I don't know if you can tell from the pics but Annie's dress has little stars in it to match her pinafore!  I love my Annies!  Every time I walk by them, they make me smile. Thanks Darlene!!!  You can visit with Darlene on her blog at http://threedstyleinflorida.blogspot.com/   and she has her dolls for sale at http://www.etsy.com/shop/ThreeDStyle?ref=seller_info

Then I got my pillow tucks from Brenda's giveaway and I love them!!  Thanks Brenda!!!!  They are so adorable and I know exactly where I am going to put each and everyone of them.  I love them but I really LOVE the American Flag pillow!

Last but not least.  I entered a Christmas in July swap on Ravenwood Whimzies Blog http://www.ravenwoodwhimzies.blogspot.com/  and my swap partner was  Amy from http://bumblebeelanecottage.blogspot.com/  And I got my package last week and it was loaded with Christmas Goodies!!   I got a Gingerbread doll that was wrapped in an adorable sack with Believe in Angels stenciled on it and a rope tied around it that has a heart and tree on it, a heart with Christmas ribbon around it with a santa and  Christmas tree tucked inside, a little notebook, which I need to remind me, two snowmen candle tarts and an adorable cross stitched stocking ornament!  Amy is so talented and I love everything!  Thanks Amy!!!

I'm Not As Young As I Once Was!

Well I found out last week that I am not as young as I once was!LOL
I have always said that I would never, ever grow up!!  I have always swore that when I can't see life through a child's eyes, I don't want to be here!   And I haven't mentally!LOL  But somehow my body hasn't cooperated with my mind.ROFLMBO
I have always canned and put food in the freezer.  I used to put up 30 dozen ears of corn cut off in one day! Nothing to it!  Well I put up 25 dozen week before last and half of that was on the cob, and wound up in bed on a heat pad for a week!!  My back hurt, my right arm went numb and I couldn't bend my fingers and my left arm and shoulder hurt so bad I wanted to scream!!!!!  I hurt so bad that I couldn't figure out where to put the heat pad first.LOLOLOL!  They really need to come out with a body heat pad!!
And I still have to put up beets, apples and tomato juice!
So I figured it out.  I'm not as young as I once was!!  Old age stinks, even when it's just your body!!LOL
