Back Home!

I am home again! Thank you to all that prayed for my dad! He still can use lots more prayer, his road to recovery is long, and he is getting a bed sore on his heel also!

My trip had some great points! Spending quality time with my mom! (spending time with my dad too but it was not really quality in his condition, and well you know what men are like when they are sick!!!)

Just watching the hummingbirds with my mom was a joy!

We took apart the old nasty photo albums and worked on getting the photos into "Acid Free" albums and I took some old photos and worked on the computer correcting and enhancing them. When my aunt saw them she suddenly produced some old old family photos and I really got to enhance some! I scrap a few so far but can't wait to scrap them now that I am home and have all my supplies!!!

I also took mom shopping to get a supply of groceries built up in the cupboards and the freezer. We went to sams and she used the electric wheelchair just so she did not tire out so easy! It was fun! Glad my uncle could stay with my dad for us to do it! Just tasting the samples with her was fun! While we were out we went to the dollar store and she bought frames for the photos I restored and enlarged. I altered them for my mom and she loved them!

I got to see my grandson, son and dil who live down in S.C. twice while I was there and that was great too! THey live about 2 hours from me! Britton my middle grandson (8 days older then my youngest grandson is a sweetie!) He called my mom and me, grandma and grandma! LOL

The first Saturday the came down my niece and her boys came over, and my nephew and niece in law and their boys came over also so I got to see and enjoy more family!

It was great to see My grandson with my parents too~ So many children never know their great grandparents!

It was a joy to come home and be greeted with load of kisses from my other two grandsons, Jason and Noah! I most defiantly felt missed! OH of course hubby had some kisses in there too! The boys were insistent that I rode in the back seat with them right in the middle!

I'm happy you're home safe and sound Susie. It sounds like you had a wonderful time with family. I will continue to pray for your father's healing.

I actually had you linked up to tag and changed it because I wasn't sure if you were home or not yet. ;) When you get back from camping feel free to play along!!
