24, he can’t be!

that’s right, my son is 24 today.  I can’t believe it.  Where did the time go?  Seems like only yesterday I was singing “You are my sunshine” to him, and he was asking me “Mommy settle me down” (rubbing his back before going to sleep).  Oh how I cherish those memories.   Q Happy Birthday Derek!!! d

K…let’s see what have I been up to since I last posted.  The two biggest things were I was out of town for a family reunion and still working on getting the basement prepped for carpeting, coming on Wednesday. 

Hubby’s family had a reunion in Livonia Mi over the weekend, so we traveled about 8 hours to attend.  We had a wonderful time, visiting with his family and relatives he hadn’t seen in a few years.  On the way up we stopped in Amish country in Ohio.  We had a blast, the only problem is we didn’t have enough time to see much, so I’m sure another trip will be in the future. However we did hit a few antique shops while in the area. And Sunday on our trip home, we stopped at three more.  I will have to say we did pretty good on this trip.  We didn’t fill the truck up.  B   Although I did find some of the glassware that I have been searching for.  I  have been collecting some snack plates, some for any occassions and some with snowflakes for the winter months, and found both that I was looking for.  SCORE!

I think we have finally got all the floors prepped and the furniture moved out of the basement for the carpet layers tomorrow.  I’m so excited about getting this new carpet.  It is going to give the area a whole new feel and look.  Woohoo.  I’m not going to want to put anything back in the basement.  I share a few before pictures here if you missed them.  I will try to snap some new ones once we have things back in place.

well I really should scoot, just wanted to keep you up to date what is going on with me.  I need to get around to visit with you all.  Bare with me. 

1 Samuel 16:7“But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”

  2. Hi Cindy,
    Wow, Jason was 24 when I met him and he'll turn 39 on Thursday! Happy birthday to your 'not so baby' boy :) It's super hot here, I'm taking Kristen to the pool in a few minutes. Have a super week.

  3. Hi Cindy;

    Boy you've been busy! Happy Birthday to your Derek. I was saying the same thing 2 weeks ago about my son. Only he had turned 45 on July 15th. I still can't believe it! LOL! After all I'm only 39 (yeah, right!!)

    I used to go to PA a lot to the Amish countryside with my sister and love it. So beautiful and clean farm lands. Never been to the Ohio Amish countryside.

    Your family reunion sounded like a great time. I always enjoy family get togethers.

    Have a lovely evening my friend. Hugs
