Slumber Party :)

Last night we had four of the grandchildren over for a slumber party.
They are getting to an age
where they really enjoy each other and play so well together.
We spent some quality time at the park
went for ice cream.
Always a great way to get everyone in a good mood...ha..ha!
Seeing 3 five year olds asleep in a big bed is so precious!!!
They played Wii games,
played army
The sad part is
that don't really need you anymore to entertain them.
They are growing up!

The boys playing duets :D

Tearing my heart out!

Today I was watching part of the Casey Cindy was on the stand! It was all I could do to hold the tears back! Knowing how important your grandchildren are to you.......the heart wrenching testimony brought me to my knees! I can not imagine a more devastating situation.....OMG....and she has to relive every sorted detail! I don't think I can watch anymore:(

ASAP for AUTISM! My new venture!

I have started a new venture......stemming from my love of this little girl and the need she has for a better life with Autism!
Margo, as most of you know, is 8 yrs. old and Autistic. I would give anything to make her world easier and better.
This new project could help many families with an Autistic child.
I am going to provide

(A Safe After-school Program for Autism).

In the summer the public schools in our area only
provide schooling for disabled children until noon!
What I have in mind is a program that will fill the afternoons for these children
while providing peace of mind for their working parents.
I have applied for the 503c non-profit tax status and several grants offered by the govt. and Pepsi Cola!
I have a program set up providing ABA, speech, occupational and physical therapy.
Autistic children will learn while having fun on field trips,
arts & crafts
possibly horseback riding.
I will keep you updated if this interests you:D
The blog is located here!

Some catching up!

In no particular order......we have been able to spend a lot of time lately with the kids and these are some of the shots I have taken in the last week or so! Milly is now taking gymnastics, Margo is still doing exceptionally well with her horseback training and the twins spent almost a week with us while Mommy and daddy attended to some out of town business:D All in all it has been a fabulous time!

Pure Joy..........

Although many Austic children don't want to be touched and are not affectionate.......not the case with my precious Margo! She has her moments, but most of the time is very happy and loving! When she grabs my face and puts her nose to mine with a big grin.....I melt!!!!! Each of our grandchildren are special for MANY different reasons.....and all are loving....but when a child that is not supposed to react that way due to her disability kisses you it puts goose bumps on your arms:D

2010 Memories............

This year has been chocked full of memories of all my peeps growing and maturing:D What fun retirement has allowed me! I get to be a part of their lives on a more constant level! Milly and Margo now live within a couple of miles and I am able to see them at a moments that! The twins are taking part in many things that I can be a part of.......watching mostly...LOL. Hunter, Chase and Milly have been taking Tai Quando and Margo has been taking horseback riding and gymnastics. The twins are also involved in gymnastics and Milly will be starting mid January. Maddie has been in for visits every few months as well as us heading up to K.C. Soon there will be another in K.C.......come August....YEA! The kids are what my world revolves some ways it makes me feel like a mom again......something I always loved being:D Can't wait to see what these little ones bring to 2011!
