This is what we woke up to today! The trees are all coated in ice then topped with a layer of SNOW! It is beautiful to see! We lost a tree, came down over the driveway. Poppa has to get the chain saw out! BEAUTIFUL WINTER! Now this is snow you kids in Mississippi. Hope it sticks around for y'all to see when you get here!

November had Nanna and Poppa heading to Mississippi. We stopped on the way to say goodbye to Jaron and Landon's Nanny Bensinger who passed away just before Thanksgiving. We got to visit Ron and Janene's new house which will be ready for occupancy sometime in Feb. Then Nanna and Poppa got in the car and drove and drove and drove and drove until we ended up at Jo and George's house in Mississippi. We will spend Thanksgiving with Abby, Alex and Grace and then will drive home just in time for everyone to come to our house for Christmas. Whew! Nanna is tired already, just thinking about it.

In June, we went to Mississippi to Jo and George's. Everyone came down to help celebrate Poppa's 60th birthday! We usually get together in June or July at Nanna and Poppa's house to celebrate all the birthdays but we did it in Mississippi this year. On May 31st George turned 38years old and that started the multiple celebrations. Next was Abby who was 9 on June 13th, then Uncle Ron was 33 on June 16th and Poppa was 60 on the 17th. Nanna and Poppa had their 39th anniversary on June 21st and Vincent was 4 on the 27th! WHEW! That's a lot of celebrations! We have a short break and Anthony turned 36 on July 11th. Here are some of the photos from the gang at Mississippi.

Just got home from a weekend with Ron and Janene's boys. Mommy and Daddy went to New York City to a Mets game. They stayed over night and Poppa and Nanna got to stay with Jaron and Landon. We had great fun! Poppa did some painting repair work and installed a new ceiling fan in the rec room while Nanna played with her boys.
and finally, Landon took this picture of Nanna in her jammies at our pajama party. Can't wait to do it again! This weekend it is off to Chicago and Ant and Ang's gang.
This is the Fantasy Cruise ship we sailed on! It was HUGE!
This is inside the ship. She was about 8 or 9 decks high..
this is the stateroom I shared with Irene.
And this is our family at our dinner seating on ship!
While on the cruise we visited 2 ports in Mexico.Cozamel and Progresso. We toured the Myan ruins and the kids got to swim with dolphins! Check out the pics below!
It was about 102 degrees out when we toured the ruins but it was spectacular to see.
I loved my cruise. Thanks Jo for asking me! When are we going again?

More on politics! What is this political mess? Are there no honest people in the world anymore. I am turning into a REAL CYNIC! Can't seem to believe anyone anymore. Does anyone care about the state of our economy? What will it take to wake everyone up? Our country is slowly being bought out from under us. Soon we will no longer be the USofA but will be some foreign state's colony! I for one an GREATLY CONCERNED! Don't have any idea how I can change the course we are on. All I can do at this point is HOPE AND PRAY. WHAT DO YOU THINK?

What is it that is causing such a hubbub? What is exciting so many who in years past have been so apathetic. I can almost feel that my personal vote can make a difference and I haven't felt that way in YEARS. I am not committed to any candidate yet but I am narrowing the field just as these primaries have narrowed the field.
Before all this started, I was quite disillusioned. I wasn't even sure I was going to vote. I believe that our nation is sitting on the brink of a very dangerous precipice and that if we do not change course drastically, we are headed for disaster. Our economy is dangerously wounded! It needs major surgery now or we will collapse from within. Perhaps that is our "enemies" goal. Doesn't anyone in our government see the DANGER in our present course? I for one am scared for our nation's future. With John McCain I fear more of "business as usual",Barack Obama promises change but can he produce it if he gets elected, and Hillary promises everything but no one likes her. She seems qualified but she alienates so many people that I'm not sure she is the person our nation needs right now. Obama is well liked and seems to have the ability to work with
people from all sides of the track but does he have what it takes to run our nation? It is a real dilemma. WHO IS BEST TO STRAIGHTEN OUT THIS MESS WE SEEM TO BE IN?
This is a look and one of my newest paintings. It is an 8x10 done in acrylics on stretched canvas with a wrap-around edge.
