Under the Tuscan Sun

I am a little late watching movies. This one came out several years ago and I am just now watching it. I loved it! Beautiful scenery.

I love this dress she is wearing in this scene.

Beautiful home, after remodel!

Makes me want to take a vacation! Even if it's only in a movie!

2010 Christmas picture

It was hard to get a good Christmas picture. Nicky wasn't feeling good and was running a fever. His nose was running and he had chapped red lips. Poor little guy!
I love my grand kids! I am so thankful to be their grandma!

Or this one you can add your picture to different photos like coins, stamps, Christmas ornaments and even Mt. Rushmore! There is lots to choose from. So cool!

The most wonderful time of the year

I can't believe it is almost Thanksgiving. I have been missing in the blog world! And I don't even have a good excuse why? Before I know it Christmas is going to be here and I haven't even got my shopping done. Or my Christmas letter and cards sent. I need to turn in to superwoman so I can get it all done. Is everyone ready for Christmas? Is it just me who is so far behind this year?

My History

I did this college through Walgreen's to honor my parents and grandparents. The largest photo is my mom and dad when they first started dating! They were so cute! My parents posing by their car looking like "Bonnie & Clyde" The other photos are my grandparents the McKee's and Powers! I never met my grandma McKee but I wish I had everyone said she was so sweet!
These are the people who made me who I am!

When life was simple!

When I was visiting my parents, my Mom gave me this picture of me when I was 8. I remember this time so well. Life was so simple back then. In so many ways I miss that. But then you grow up and things get complicated. But there is no way I would want to do it all again. I am happy with my life just like it is. The good, the bad and all the rest!

"The boy who came back from Heaven"

I just finished reading "The boy who came back from heaven" it is a true story about a little boy who was seriously injured in a car accident. What God is doing in Alex Malarkey's life is amazing. I had not heard his story before this book. If you have not heard about Alex check out his families website at
I loved this book!

Mini Me

My mom was fixing corn for dinner one night while I was in NM and she found this corn with a mini me attached. We had never seen one like this before, have you?

Knee Update~

Knee update: I got to see my x-rays yesterday. My Dr. did an amazing job! I didn't have a normal total knee replacement because my RA had destroyed my joint so bad, my doctor said my bones were like butter, there was nothing to attached the new joint too so he had to put a bar up in the bone to stabilize the joint. It works great and I am so thankful I can walk normal again! Dr. Cercek is the best!

I got home last night. I had a great visit with my parents in NM. Dad had a great week and his dialysis went well. But today he had a set-back with a infection, so he is now back in the hospital. I am wishing I was there again! Please keep my dad in prayer!

I haven't left on my trip yet. I am hoping on Tuesday. My sister is in town home shopping and I am going to go back with her. It has been over a year since I have seen my dad and with his recent health issues I need/want to spend as much time with him as possible.
This last week I had my youngest grandson Nicholas with me a few days. I am trying to get back in the swing of things since my surgery. It has now been over a month since my knee was replaced. I am doing good but had a bit of a set-back this last couple of days. Looks like I have a little infection setting in Doc called me in some strong antibiotics. Monday I go see him, hope all will be better so I can go on my trip. :)
I took this picture of Nicky one morning. He was still tired and a bit grumpy in his pj's. I couldn't resist taking his picture. He is trying to say "Grandma" now it sounds more like gamo, so cute and priceless!
Life is good~

Autumn ~ my favorite time of the year

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. Even though the calendar says it is autumn it is not here in my home town yet! This past week we have been having record breaking temperatures. On Sunday we had a high of 111. Today was better our high was only 97. I know Autumn will be here soon. I am looking forward to it! It has been a long hot summer.

My dad made the hard life saving decision to go on dialysis this last week. He is doing good but is still very weak. Please continue to pray for him and my mom who is so tired every day going to the hospital but keeps on going.
As for Me, I am doing good. My leg still feels like it's not my leg! lol I hear this is normal. I can't wait until all the healing is done and I am as good as new!
this picture above was taken in 2008 on one of my visits to NM. When I get well enough I want to go see my dad! I miss him!
