Lets See....

I feel like i have nothing to post about, just been same ol here waiting for the snow to melt and spring clean up to begin.
almost there....

i did sell alot of my blue/white i brought back from Japan
 (did ask the kids if they wanted it...)
don't worry still have more for the kids to divide up someday,
i just don't have any sentimental value to some of this as i love love my
antique Japanese things and use them in my decorating, but these have 
been stored since moving to the states almost 20 yrs ago now, so anyway
glad they found a home where they will be enjoyed! the best part is
Daughter Angela is going to the cities for training and the gal will meet her there!
so no shipping other that the car ride involved sooo i dont have to worry about
breakage! that alone to me means it was ment to be!

 here are the latest grandbabe pictures!
Grandbabe #1 with Great-grandma...

Grandbabe #2 trying on clothes for Daddy and Tonyas Wedding this summer

Grandbabe #3 sleeping... 

Enjoy your day my Blogging Friends!             Jody
