    by , 03-26-2012 at 02:43 PM (Rhonda's Retreat)
    Daymon is the blonde twin and he is the one that fell off his bike and had to stay in the hospital over night recently. As you can see he is just fine again. You can see his pic in the post below this one.

    the boys will be 9 this next November. I can't believe how fast time flies and how much they grow up over night!

    My mom has been working on an autobiography of her life for her grands and great grands. Devon the dark haired twin asked her if she would write down ...
  2. Colton Leo

    Colton and his big brothers Daymon and Devon came to stay with Grandma Rhonda and Papa this weekend. Cousin Rachel came too.

    Colton has been bopping around here having fun! He had a good time outside yesterday too but he tried to outrun Grandma! LOL Not a pretty sight to see Grandma run!!

    He's 15 mos now and climbing on and off things. Which is a stage I don't really like. We have a concrete floor and I constantly worry that they will fall and hit their heads until they ...

    Here are the hotpads I just made last week. I used to make about a dozen of them every 2 to 3 weeks for the local gift shop. But she closed so now I make them for friends and need to make some for my online store.

  5. More Pictures of my Little Ones

    by , 03-05-2012 at 08:12 PM (Rhonda's Retreat)
    Well we have now put 600 miles on our new van so I guess I am getting used to it! LOL It has a running board that hits my shin every time I get in or out of it. It is so annoying! The last van I kept hitting my head on the door frame and this one gets my leg! If I remember to step over getting in I do ok and I have figured out if I scoot forward and put my rt foot on the running board I can get over the running board without hitting my leg but I forget more often than not! Grrrr

  6. DGS Spent the Night in Hospital

    by , 02-27-2012 at 03:38 PM (Rhonda's Retreat)
    My DGS Daymon is 8 and loves to ride his bike. But yesterday he caught the guide wire on a pole in their yard and it flipped him into the grass hitting his head. He limped into the house and while his mom was cleaning the scratches on his hand he was asking What Happened? How did those scratches get there? He was very vague and not quite sure what was going on. So they took him to the hospital and they kept him overnight for observation. He was still vague and unsure of where he was etc on the ...
  7. Our New Van

    by , 02-22-2012 at 01:50 PM (Rhonda's Retreat)
    It has taken me some time to come to terms with this new van. I went into the dealership just to look and possibly to trade our 2001 town and country in on a 2006 van. But we walked out with a brand new 2012 Dodge Caravan. I was just not ready for that I guess! LOL I have had to make do all my life and as my dad and my DH were mechanics driving mechanic's specials was the type of cars or vans we drove.

    A little over 2 yrs ago we got our first ever car payment. At least first one in ...

    Had to share our bedtime routine with you all tonight. This weekend I have Daymon 8 and Devon 8(twins) and Colton their little brother 13mos and Rachel almost 10.

    We always get them ready for bed and then I sit with them and we sing songs and talk and tell stories and they wind down for bed. Then I sing Silent Night a few times as they drift off.

    I have two couches that sit facing each other with a couple of feet between. Then I have the full size air mattress up ...
