Friday Five

1. A Happy Boy

Katy captured this picture of Baylor on the trampoline enjoying a spring afternoon.  Those blue eyes just get Nana every time. He will be turning 8 soon. Thanks to all of you who pray for our sweet spectrum boy.

2. Bai Water

My friend,Sharon, who lives up the street shared some of this water with me this week. It is pretty good and a change from soda.

3. A Jane Austen cross stitch chart

He is a gentleman and I am a gentleman's daughter, So far we are equals. I love Pride and Prejudice so I could not resist this sampler from Plum Street featuring Elizabeth Bennett and Mr Darcy. I ordered this chart from Kitten and Teresa sent along a pretty card and the keys I ordered to embellish a future project. I think I may frame the card and put it next o my stitching spot.

4. A Sweet Grandson

I am truly blessed in the grandson department. Saturday afternoon, Landon came by our house to share two Krispy Kremes with Nana and Grandpa. He had earned a half dozen by getting A's on his report card and he gifted us with two! We were touched by his kindness.

5. A Future Trip

This summer Marvin and I are joining Amelia and Todd for a trip to Louisiana to stat at the house featured in Steel Magnolias. If I could spell the name of the town I would add it but believe me it is pronounced nothing like it is spelled there in lies the problem. Grandpa and I are staying in the Ouiser Room.  We had hoped to take a girls trip with Kendall but the establishment does not allow guests under the age of 17. So the adults are going!

And to add another favorite thing...happy birthday to my middle sister, Kristi. I won't say how old she is but she is younger than me by a little bit!!

Baylor's blue eyes are captivating for sure. Never tried the water but bet it is refreshing. How sweet that Landon brought you the donuts...sweets for the sweet! What fun it will be to stay in the Steel Magnolias house...cant wait to hear about it.

I can't wait to hear about the stay in the Steel Magnolias house. That Baylor is precious and Landon has a heart of golfer his grandparents. Love your new keys. I actually have an old key like that belonged to my grandma.
I should think of something special to do with it.

You are so lucky, Arlene. Steel Magnolias is one of my favorite movies!! Have a great weekend.

What a sweet picture of Baylor! Such a cute guy and I do remember him in my prayers, Arlene.

The offer still stands...any time the Grimms want to give Landon up he is always welcome here in WV. :) He has such a kind and loving nature and it is evident in his countenance.

Oh...what fun you are going to have this summer!

I'm a bit jealous of that trip!

I had no idea that the Steel Magnolia house was open for guests. That should be so interesting. Oh my gosh, those doughnuts!! We have doughnuts for special treats around here, too, so I think it's great that your grandson earned those. How thoughtful he is to share!
