Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

A Busy Week

This little guy spent lots of time with Mimi and Grandpa last week while his
mommy and daddy spent time with his baby sister.
We decided to put him to work.

While sister hung out in the NICU just relaxing and
growing stronger everyday.  (She's doing great!  Thanks for all your prayers!)

Betsy had an appointment with the groomer over at the Paw Spa.
Why yes, we do know she needs braces!

Mimi had an appointment with this torture diagnostic equipment.

We're more that 200% of our annual rainfall through the month of May.
We've broken all kinds of rain records this month which I do
believe the flowers love since they seem to be happily growing.

And so is the lawn.

And guess what we woke up to on Memorial Day?

Snow!  Can you believe it?
We're hoping for a little spring weather before the
heat of summer sets in.

So :) to hear that Margaret Ann is progressing nicely.
I laughed out loud at that first picture...I love how little kidlets love to "help" you with chores...then when they're 10 or 12they're nowhere to be found.
Snow? Seriously?
So sorry to hear that one!

That diagnostic appointment isn't fun, but I'm glad it's available.

Your grandkids are beautiful!

It's good to finally have some sun!
