2013 January 6 Sunday

MasonWow, I have realized more with each passing day, how very fast time flies!!! I am still such a blessed woman. My first 2 grandangels will turn 4 this year!!! Not possible! My first grandangel boy is going to be 6 months old in less than three weeks! Mason came into our lives July 25, 2012. He is absolutely adorable. My holidays were fabulous because of family! We had our first snow on Christmas this year, beautiful, but kept several from being able to make it to Christmas at my sister’s house! Having Mother and Daddy out here with us was fabulous! James and I had 6 Christmas’ to do and we did! The only thing terribly hurtful, is, that James lost his job Thanksgiving week. The company he worked for was definitely not a nice one. They will suffer the loss. As we have a new year, I am praying to God that he opens a wonderful opportunity up for James. He so deserves a good job. Only 8 weeks and 1 day and our second grandangel boy will be arriving! Brady is due to arrive March 4, 2013. I am loading up on blessings with these precious grandangels. My new year’s resolution is to shed 25 pounds, write more on my blog, and do some sewing! Hopefully I will be able to accomplish these things. After all of the baking for Christmas I did, we still have some goodies left. I will do much better on the “diet” after that is gone. Cowboys disappointed again at the end of the season! Jerry says it is going to be VERY uncomfortable around Valley Ranch….right! James and I just realized Fancie is 11 1/2 years old, that doesn’t seem possible either! She is such a sweet little dog! James trained her and she is very good! He has kept the cover off the pool this winter and since he is home right now (no job), he is diligently keeping it perfect and I know he is proud of it. We will have our 3rd annual Norman Oasis Opening, which I am planning for June 1st! Only about 20 weeks away, and that will fly! I love summertime, best of all the seasons! Talk to you again soon……………….love, Gigi!

Sunday morning- July 8th 2012

Hello everyone!!!  2weeks and 5 days til my first little boy grandangel is due to arrive.  My Babydoll goes back for her checkup tomorrow.  I am so anxious for my wonderful daughter, Lana to be blessed with a child!  I have no doubt she and Brian will be GREAT parents!  Lana has loved the role of ‘Mother” all her life and now, she gets to live that role! The summer of July 2012 has been fast and furious!  Started on May 12, 2012. That was our “opening season at the Norman Oasis! Of course, it was a bit early for the water, so we only had a couple of the children actually swim!  Fun time was had by all! Then we celebrated Mother’s Day on the same day so everyone would get to see all the Mom’s! Since that weekend, just about every weekend, we have been blowin’ and goin’! Now, we are waiting on Mason Kieth to arrive! Baby Showers, July 4th, birthdays, Father’s Day, but, the BIG one is Mason! Can’t wait to start loving on him!!! I believe: “being a grandparent is like….opening presents FOREVER”!!!!!  Stay tuned for more to come, love……………..Gigi

Exactly 4 weeks!!!

Well, I can’t begin to tell you how very excited I am to know my Babydoll Lana, is giving birth to our 1st Grandson!!! He is due 4 weeks from today!  Most everyone doesn’t think she will go that long.  Bless her heart, she has done soooo good!  She and Brian sure have his room fixed up adorable.  His name will be Mason Kieth! Yes, that is the way Kieth will be spelled!  Brian’s mother spelled his name that way, so, Mason will have his middle name after his Daddy!!! Love it! I am soooo excited!!! Last weekend was our precious Kaela’s 3rd birthday party!  She is just adorable!  James, Kylie and I spent the night with Lana and Brian, had such a great time!  Brought our other little adorable Kylie home with us and we swam 6 hours!  This weekend we are going down to my handsome brother, Ben’s for their (Mary Beth & Ben) annual 4th of July Celebration!  Can’t wait, always have a blast!!! Love……………………Gigi

Yipppeee, Lana and Brian are presenting us with Mason Keith Hamblin in July!!!!!  I’m soooo excited to have a little grandson!!!  Yesterday, James and I met Lana at the Range Rover dealership and ate breakfast at Denny’s and then shopped at Babies R Us! Had a blast! Then at lunch at Buca Di Beppo Italian and it was delish!!!!  Took Lana back to get her car and she went back home.  We went and visited with Cliff, Kristin, and Kylie! Enjoyed seeing them all, but of course, Kylie was the show stopper!  However, their big ol’ white cat, Meester, ran a close second.  He climbed up on the back of the recliner, and proceeded to throw up run into my purse that was sitting on the floor!!!  Thank goodness, and Kristin’s quick action, not much damage!!!  Guess I won’t put my purse on the floor next time!!! hahahaha  James and I just finished watching Nascar race and Dale Jr. lead quite a few laps!!!  Definitely a Jr. fan!!!  I am very excited about a new grandson on the way and summer coming!!! Love…………………Gigi

Christmas Holidays

Mother and DaddyWhew, the anticipation of Christmas has passed now.  Christmas was fabulous!  Everyone in the family was at our house for the Christmas Day Dinner!  (except Taylor and Cynthia).  I have the week off and I am working  just as hard as a turk!!!!  Not even going to start taking down the Christmas decorations, I think I deserve being able to look at them with no stress of schedule!!!!  Kaela and Kylie looked so precious on Christmas dressed alike in their little Christmas dresses that Nana and Pop gave them!!!  Mother and Daddy (and Shane) were here from the 20th till the 26th.  The weather hasn’t been bad, just cold enough to have the fireplace going!!!  I baked about 14 different sweets this year!  It was a wonderful Christmas!  Kept Kylie yesterday and sure enjoyed having her.  James was off too, so we had fun the whole day!  Love………………..Gigi

Summer Is Over

swimming poolWOW, what a summer!!!  We put our pool in and love, love, love it!!!!  So thankful to have had the opportunity to have family and friends all summer long! Perfect weather all  summer for swimming, thank you Lord!  We were in it every single day!!! Came home from work each evening and jumped in swimming suit and then right in the pool!  How refreshing!   It has been a wonderful summer!!!  Daddy got a severe infection in his right hand under the tendons (not sure at all how it happened), had to have surgery and been in the Tyler ETMC for 15 days! Mother has been with him every minute.  They should be going home on Monday or Tuesday.  They are soooooo ready!  Kylie and Kaela are just chattering up a storm now and growing so fast!!!  Precious dolls!  Went to Joe’s Crab Shack and Main Event for Lana’s 30th (and Brian’s 31st) and had an absolute blast!  Bowled, Glo-Golf, and Laser Tag (which was my favorite)!!!!  Where has this year already gone?  Just can’t believe Gigi is already Christmas shopping!!!  ……..Love….Gigi
