Yesterday I blogged about how worried I am about my husband's health. That is still a BIG concern for me. But yesterday via FaceBook I found out that my son Scott and his girlfriend Liz had decided that they were getting married and set a date. I love Liz. Both of my boys have done very well finding wonderful women to settle down with. And that dear ol' mom can get along with, lol. The tentative date right now is March 26, 2011. At least they gave me more notice than Wade and Diana. The plus is that Liz's family also loves Scott. They know his whole situation with the law and still they love him. As a matter of fact, he is going to be in Liz's Mom's wedding this weekend. We are very happy to welcome Liz into our family.
Here's Liz and Scott trying to be Santa & Mrs. C. Aren't they just cute?
Here they are just before St. Patty's day! They were going to the Strawberry Festival.

This is what I got...been dying to try it.....Joe's Classic Steam Pot. It has Alaskan Snow Crab legs, Dungeness Crab legs, shrimp, potoes, an ear of corn and a smoked sausage. Yeah I don't get the whole sausage thing either. Hut got the fried fisherman's platter which had fried cod, shrimp and scallops, hushpuppies and french fries.
Here I am waiting to dive in. I'm trying to supress a yawn, which is why I have that look on my face.Getting to the good stuff. This had to be the best seafood I have ever eaten. I can't wait to go back.I thought this was funny. They had suitcases covered in crabs hanging all over the ceiling. Some were small, others large. Of course this one was a "large case of crabs".
Since we were so close to the grandbabies we decided to pay a visit. Here's sweet Layla. This seems to be her pose lately.
And here's my chubby baby Rossi. She looks just like here daddy. He was a chubbo just like she is. And if you put baby pictures side by side, they could be twins. She is so precious.

Me and Hut before heading out. We clean up pretty darn good if I do say so myself.
I can't believe we'd fetch $1,000 award. Now don't any of you get it in your pretty little head to turn us in.
Who is that purty little blonde with my husband in the hoosecow? Why it's Gwinnell, Sheriff Judd's right hand "man". Very awesome lady.
Sheriff Grady Judd with me and Hut. He is one of the greatest people and a no nonsense sheriff. We all just LOVE him!
Hut receiving his certificate from Sheriff Judd. And yest that's a real covered wagon!
Here's the whole "gradutating class".

This is the one I've started for Layla. Nice bright colors and she loves pink.
Here I have four sections of popcorn pattern finished.
A close up of the pattern. It's basically knitting a row, purling a row and then on the tenth row, dropping every 10th stitch and picking up the pink to make the pattern puff out ( I guess like popcorn?).
If Diana see this sees going to be surprised. I had originally picked out the baby pastels for Rossi. Mainly because I couldn't find any other colored yarn that I liked. Well I shopped at a different Walmart the other day and they had this color. I fell in love with it. I am putting purple in between.
As you can see, I am just starting Rossi's. I plan on doing some on Layla's and then some on Rossi's. I want to try to finish them together.
This picture has nothing to do with my Love Project. I just love this picture. My husband dancing with me on the streets of Old Town, Kissimmee, Florida, to "You've Lost That Loving Feeling". Believe me I haven't lost that feeling.

This is Skylee...she just turned 2. She is one of the happiest little girls I've ever known. She sure don't get it from her daddy's side of the family, lol.
Here's Tyler. He just turned one. He's almost as big as his sister already. Such a cutie. And happy! They are both waiting on "chicky and fries" from McDonald's.
Here's Layla Sue pretending to be shy for the camera. You all know she is NOT the least bit shy.
My beautiful daughter in law Diana and precious Rossi Jean. I got to hold Rossi almost all the way through Church. She is such a good baby.
We had lunch at Sonny's on Easter Sunday. Thes guys and gals were in the parking lot as we were leaving. Hopefully no one had duck for Easter dinner.
As we were driving around the other day I saw this Azalea bush...it was all light pink flowers except for the one branch in the middle. It was hot pink!
Most of you know that the place I work is really beautiful and has lots of wild animals that I occasionally get pictures of. I worked a double last Thursday and decided to take some pictures of the flowers. These are pansies that they have planted. It's hard to tell but they are purple, yellow and white.
A close up of the purple ones with water drops on them.
A few months ago we had icicles hanging off the orange trees. Doesn't this tree look like it has snow on it? Believe it or not, the orange trees have fruit AND blossoms on them. It is so pretty and they smell so darn good. I love the way orange blossoms smell. Too bad Yankee Candles discontinued that scent. It was one of my favs.
I love this picture of the oranges hidden among the blossoms.
Another shot of the fruit with the blossoms. The pictures really don't do them justice.
Even though there is no fruit on this tree...I loved the blossoms on it. Today I parked by this tree and the blossoms are gone. I'm glad I took this picture.

I am hoping to keep my "old" friends back in my life. Computers can be a wonderful thing sometimes and it sure was for me this time.

I did call him, and for the next 45 minutes and 3 seconds couldn't get a word in edgewise. Not really, I did get a few good licks in there but not many, lol. We have worked out most of the issues, enough that we can be civil to each other at family events. So am I crazy for even talking to this man again? Probably but I really don't want to have the kids and grandkids walking on pins and needles or be afraid to talk about the other parent/grandparent. So I think that yes, I'm crazy......but it's all for a good cause! All comments and lashings welcome.
