I have been trying for days now to post pictures and for some odd reason I just cannot do it. I have found that I can upload them from photo bucket so if I want to share pics i guess that I am going to have to do it that way...Makes it so much harder. I have looked all over blogger trying to find an answer to my dilemna. Why do i get to have this fun thing happen to me? Oh well..such is our life!!


We had a good day here. We took my dad and mother to the Mighty 8th Museum which is located right up 95 from us in Pooler!! I knew that Dad would love it since he was in WWII. We are trying to think of fun things that they both would like to do while here in Georgia!! We have been downtown, to the beach, to the TEA ROOM, the movies and well just about any place that I can think of. I have a lot of good pictures but will have to figure how how to share them with ya'll.


L to R:
Becky (our daughter); JJ (Friend of Becky); Julie (our daughter); Me;
Katie--15- (granddaughter); Madison --10-- (granddaughter) and Emily-17- (granddaughter)

Our daughter, Julie and her family were here this past week. We had 10 people here in the house..6 slept inside and 4 out in our motor home. So glad for that motor home and its extra room!! We went downtown, shopping, the beach and just had a good time. We had enough to eat too. We made things that fed a lot of people!! Sometimes taking turns at the table. I gave my big dining room table to Julie and her family at Christmas time!! So we have a small kitchen table. We used card tables, TV trays and just about anything to eat on. But we had a good time. Our poor cat, Annie, kind of hid the whole week. She would come out in the evenings or in the mornings when things would quiet down...then scurry back to her many hiding places when the noise level would rise!!

We have been to movies...I really recommend seeing, "UP"...that is really a cute cute movie. I just loved it. We also saw, "Night at the Museum at the Smithsonian". I have so many that I would love to see but well you know you cannot see them all!! My love of movies!! Smile!!

Georgia has really got a lot of rain lately!! So unusual for us to get this much rain. The flowers and plants are pretty happy here....

Remember to pray for Jane's hubby this week as he goes into the hospital. Some of you may know Jane from Cozy Corner. She is a good friend and a fellow blogger so remember to pray for her hubby Warren this week..His surgery is this week on the 10th!!

I am so behind reading everyone's blogs..shame on me. It has been a very busy summer this year for me. I am still working part time at Curves and still go there 3 times a week. My knee has finally decided to be normal again after that surgery. It took about 10 weeks for things to straighten up. I did have an injection of more cortisone last week and also an injection into my heel for my plantar fasciatis. Whatever it worked!! YES

Take care and stop by...even though I have been so lazy in visiting you!!

Thought for the day: "Friendship is like wetting your pants, Everyone can see it."

Great pictures, enjoyed them sweetie.

Deanna said...

Sounds like a wonderful time! I really miss family get togethers! I really enjoy spending time with yours here on the blog. Glad your knee if finally getting back to normal!

Linda said...

Glad to hear you knee is doing better.

I'm not having trouble uploading pictures, but blogger froze on me and wouldn't save my post. Had to get off the Internet and go back in and edit my post. I'm trying to get back into blogging.

Hi Sandy, your past week with family sure was a busy and fun look so relaxed on the beach.

The tea room luncheon looked like everyone was enjoying themselves!!

I am ready for Wednesday. Dr. Miller uses the space above Dr. Hoffman's office for her eye surgeries.

I am having a problem with adding a new background on my blog.It shows a view of it and then it disappears..what is wrong with that???

Time for me to cook dinner.. talk later. Hugs, Barb

I've had trouble uploading photos through Blogger, too, Sandy. So I've decided to use Picasa which I had on my computer, it's pretty easy so is no trouble. I don't know why Blogger is playing up but it seems others have had problems, too.

I love that photo of you relaxing at the beach. I can't wait for summer. I'm not a fan of the cold weather at all and it's pretty cold at the moment with a southerly wind to chill things down.

There you are sitting on that beach while it is trying to snow here Mmmmmm! no flip flops in sight here just boots my friend.

Sandy, I love your new header and background!!!

Since you're busy having such a fun time with family, then we forgive you for not being able to post or visit much! hehe I've been MIA as well lately, when the weather is nice out, I can't stand being stuck in the house so the computer stays shut off!! This week it's raining and cold so I'm now doing some long overdo visits:-)

I wish I could have joined you on the beach...looks so relaxing! Much too cold here yet for the beach but hopefully Mother Nature will realize that we deserve some nice hot weather here too! lol

Look at all those smiling faces around the table at the Tea Room...beautiful! I can well imagine how busy it was in your house with 10 people but isn't it amazing how we can manage anyway?! I remember a few years ago, I had 14 people here for a week and it was chaos but oh what fun we had:-)

Are you sure you haven't run out of picture upload limit for Blogger? I ran out of space last year and had to buy more space. xoxo

It looks like everyone was having a really fabulous time! I SO wish I was sitting on that beach with you! IF we get there this year it will just be for a day... we've got no plans for a beach "vacation" this year.

Your Mom and Dad look so happy!

Here is an idea for large family dinning. Get a sheet of plywood. put eye hooks on the under edge. Set it on top of your table and take rope to tie it on to the table tight. Then use a flat bed sheet for a table cloth. Make a nice table for entertaining guests

Hey I haven't run away, but like you we have been having some long overdue family time. Your mom and dad look like they are having a fabulous time. I miss you but have you prayed up. When is your family reunion in Illinois? said...

It looks like you are having the best time ever!! What fun you are having! Your Mom and Dad are so cute!! Love and hugs Grams
