Grandsons and Awards!

After church today, my daughter and son in law took me out to lunch. They said it is a thanks for agreeing to stay 2 more months. Heh! heh! Actually I am going home this coming Saturday.

And since I am going home soon, I wanted to post my grandsons again. This way I can always go to my blog and see their pictures. I sure am going to miss them after I leave.
B's smile is always so cute. And hasn't the baby grown since he was born 2 weeks and 4 days ago? They sure grow fast.

I took B to the library for storytime while his mom was still recuperating
from childbirth pains. He really had a lot of fun and I was enjoying just watching him. He was very attentive and of course, he had to be right in front of the reader.

Mom and baby.

Big brother and baby

I wanna tickle those cute feet!

Now, it's award time. This
Kreativ Award is long overdue. Debby of Just Breathe presented it to me last January. I am sorry I just got to post it, Debby. I might be late but I never forget and I want to thank you again for thinking of me when you passed it along. You should all visit Debby at She is one of the sweetest bloggers that I have ever met and seeing her cute dog, Skye alone will make it worth stopping by there.

To blog is to create so I believe everybody out in Blogland is creative so please grab this award if you read this and you blog.
Today I got this Beautiful Blogger award from 2 beautiful ladies, Debbie of and Kim of http://sawwysouthernstyle, You really ought to visit these 2 ladies' blogs and like me, I know you will drool over their beautiful homes. Kim and Debbie, better cover the areas that you don't want to get wet, lol! And thank you so much for these awards. I appreciate you thinking of me.

With this award, I am supposed to list 7 things that you do not know about me yet. Hmmmmm, you might know everything about me already by now cause sometimes, I talk too much. But let me try.

1. I am retired but I used to work as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist, also known as a Medical Technologist, for so many years

2. I married my boss, (both second marriage for us) and he tells everyone that I am his boss now, lol

3. Unlike baking, I don't enjoy cooking that much but I cook everyday. But I actually enjoy cooking when I have company coming.

4. I was born and grew up in the Philippines and immigrated to the US when I was 21.

5. I got my Bachelors degree from the oldest Catholic university in the Philippines when I was 19 years old.

6. I enjoy decorating so much that our house decor and furniture arrangement (except for the ones too heavy for me to push) never stay the same

7. I cut my own hair, not too often cause I keep it long most of the time.

Last but not the least is "I love Your Blog Award" I received from Maria of http://personalizedsketchesandsentiments,

I encourage you to visit Maria, meet her lovely family and see her beautiful sketches. I have never met anyone more talented. She takes special orders too and she custom makes them to your liking.
The rule here is to pass it to 7 bloggers whose blogs I love. I have a difficult time choosing only 7 because I love all the blogs I visit so I want to pass this along to everyone I follow. Please come and grab it!

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.

How cute the grandkids are and how nice you got to help out with them so Mom could rest.

When my Daughter had her first baby she wanted me to go to her home and help her for a few days....I loved it and it gave her time to rest up and get used to a new baby.

Hi C, I just can not get over how gorgeous your grandsons are but look at the gene pool they come from!! They are just precious and you are right about the oldest ones smile, now that is a smile that would melt anyone's heart, I know he would get anything he would want if he were mine, Kathysue

I love the red and white tablescape that you did at her fresh...I love red and white and am loving it more and more over the years, and the pics of Tampa were fun to see.

P.S. That is so wonderful that you have a fireplace at the kitchen table...I know the hubby's love to watch tv while eating supper, mine always does too. Great spot for your tv, and I love those little houses on each side of the mantel...those are adorable!
