I know some of my viewers will be intersted in this.

Visiting with the in-laws recently. My sister-in-law and brother-in-law had  a few family over to mark the occasion of their new home..
While I did not mark the occasion with pictures of the outside of the beautiful house, I do have inside shots of people posing. Though I think candid shots are the best, I have none.

House owner Judy and her daughter Amanda.

Amanda's 3 kids sitting at the kitchen island.

My other two sister-in-laws who are from out of town and out of state visiting for the occassion.

They built a log cabin and are in the process of being completely moved in by Christmas.
Which means we will probably have a family Christmas day there. But not on The Christmas Day. Thats how it usually is. A Christmas at this side of the family. A Christmas at his side of the family. A Christmas with best friends. A church family Christmas. An office Christmas.

This is getting me in the spirit of  Christmas!

Spending time with my new babies and trying to help the new mommas out I had spare time to walk the dog.

That threw in a little exercise for me.

We are all happy!

Dollar Haul

I needed a shopping fix. I needed a few items. I could probably really do without them. But I talked myself into stopping at Family Dollar after work.

Items bought for under $10.00 total:

1 - bag of Halloween fruit chewy candy. For my self , not to give out to trick or treaters because we never have any ghosts or goblins to visit. So it's just treat for myself. $2.00

3 - 5x7 picture frames. For my lovely new babies pictures. See the one baby picture already in the frame. I have this thing about symmetry. Where everything has to be alike. Like all first new grandbabies pictures in the same exact frame. Granted I only have 2 new babies now. But I bought 3 frames exactly alike. It's a long story but that's how I do things. So at $2.00 each = 6 bucks.

1 - cute change purse. In my elementary life we carried change purses to keep our change in for recess vending machines . Now in my adult life, if you are ever behind me in the checkout line you may see me digging in the bottom of my purse for exact change. Well, no more. All my change will now go into this little doggie change purse for quick access . Price $1

Then today a co-worker gave me a new "For Each New Day 2013 Planner", which fits in perfect with my new plan to follow Bobbie's 40 shades of pink organizing idea from day 7 of 31 days of October organizing. This Cost me nothing.

It was all cheap. It was a few quick things to pick up. And still have dollars in my purse.

Even pet relatives can share when made too.

Poochie and Molly sharing a tiny empty space on the back seat on the way back home. Molly spent a few days with us while her parents brought home their new baby .

If these two were people, Poochie would be Molly's aunt. But of course they are not people (but don't tell them that).

Poochie on the left, solid black Molly on the right.

Baby's Here

My new baby arrived . She is absolutely precious.

Brooklyn Ann Donaldson. Oct 4, 2012. 6 lbs 9 oz. 19 1/4 in. My second grandbaby in 10 weeks . It is absolutely wonderful.

For a shower

In the TuTu business for a little girl on the way. They were quick, easy, and fun to make.

So with my instructions via video and supplies, my sisters (here and here) took on the making of tutus for a baby shower.

I was quite impressed I might add. They did a fantastic job on the tutus , having never ever made one before until this time and had probably never ever even thought of ever making one.

One tutu, of green pink and white, to go around the cake.

One to spare  of pink and white, which we didn't need for shower decor, but will look awful cute when she turns one.

And two tutus, of all pink, attached to two onzies with a little personalization .

Really really really cute.
