That’s what is going on around our house today and for the week ahead!!! We are anticipating the arrival of Gunner Blake!!! So the news is that he will definitely be here on August 161th if he doesn’t come on his own before then.  So we are all gearing up for our newest member of our family!!

I can’t wait to see Tuff being a sweet big brother (at least we hope he is a sweet big brother) and loving on his little brother!! I think he will do great since he is pretty loving when it comes to Ada.  But that doesn’t mean he will love being a big brother once he figures out that Gunner is here to stay!! ha!

I never thought in a million years that I would have 6 grandbabies within a 2 1/2 year period.  Wow I am feeling old!!   I love all of my grandbabies and I am so thankful that I get the privilege of keeping them everyday!! At least until they have a voice and can more or less tell about their day in a daycare/preschool setting.  I hear so many horror stories about daycare abuse and I know not all daycares are this way but if I can stay home and help my kids a little (financial and peace of mind) then I am thankful that I can do that.

I haven’t blogged in a week or so but it’s been pretty busy around here also.  I have painted Victoria’s bathroom and I have to say I love love the color.  I went with Natural Linen by Martha Stewart and I had it mixed with Glidden paint.  Then I painted my little laundry room and used Sherwin Williams Rice Grain.  I am not too sure about this color but I am thinking it’s because of the lack of lighting in this room.  No window equals no natural lightSad smile So I am going to proceed with this color for my kitchen and dining room unless I have a last minute changing of the mind!! 

I did pick out a creamy white color for my cabinets but haven’t had it mixed yet.  It is called Country Cloud by Valspar I think.  The sample card came from Wal-Mart.  It was really hard to find a creamy white that didn’t have a yellow/pink/green tint to it.   Maybe I will step it up a bit and post some before and after pictures!!

On top of the painting we have had a sick little Butter Bean on our hands.  Ada has had a respiratory infection since Tuesday night.  Poor thing has been running a almost constant fever since then.  Doctor said she would probably run a fever for 3 – 5 days.  She has really been down the last few days.  I hate to see my grandbabies sick that’s for sure.  She is starting to walk so I am sure I will definitely have my hands full when she is in full walking mode.  She also has that “I’m the princess attitude”.  Ha!

Our little Harrison is really growing up to be a little man.  He has been so so good for us the last few weeks.  He has definitely outgrown his picking on Tuff and now Tuff has taken on his role.  Oh me!! But Harrison has been such a sweet and loving little man and he is talking so much more!!

Victoria started 8th grade this year and she is so excited about this year!! Her first day went great and she can’t wait to see what this year has in store for her.  My baby is growing up too fast!

And as for the hubby, he is still working a lot, helping me with the grandbabies, and just being the glue that holds our family together.  He’s pretty special and I sometimes take him for granted!!  But am thankful for him each everyday.  I would be lost without him!!

Hope all of you are doing great and have a great week!!
