Easter Weekend

What a wonderful weekend it has been!! My brother and 2 nieces came down from Virginia. We went to the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher on Saturday. Hazel and her cousin Kaylee had a great time. We got to see lots of neat fish and other sea creatures. We also took the girls down to the beach. Kaylee has only seen the beach a few times since they live in the mountains so she was begging to go. Here are some pictures on the beach.

We really did have a wonderful Saturday together!! Of course we had to dye eggs and cook supper too!!

Sorry for all the pictures but they are all so good it was tough to choose!!

Here are a few pics from Easter Sunday!

WOW!! I haven't posted a thing since December 3rd! I better get my butt on the ball!! I have pics from this weekend to post, maybe I'll get around to that tomorrow!

My Thanksgiving!

Well Thanksgiving was a lovely time for my family. I had mentioned in my last post that we do a pig pickin and wanted to share a few pictures if I may. This year our piggy had his head still attached!! It's really gross looking but too funny not to share!

Poor, poor piggy!!! I have one last picture and this one is pure cute!! This is my cousins dog. This poor dog is deaf and dumb!!! But isn't she precious!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! I'm really looking forward to it this year. I just love spending time with my aunt and mama in the kitchen. My family doesn't have a traditional Thanksgiving meal, no turkey and dressing! We have a pig pickin!!! Now you really know I'm a southern gal!!! It's always a special treat that my family looks forward to each year. The turkey will be happy to know I'm not eating them this year!

Mr. Turkey, you don't have to hide from us!!!

Writer's Workshop

Thanks to Mama Kat for doing this every week!!! I chose the "I thought I saw...." prompt. I'm writing about the first thing that popped in my head when I read the phrase.

I thought I saw a puddy tat!!!!!!! I did I did!!! I love me some Tweety and Slyvester!!!! They were my favorite as a child. I still have my talking Tweety! It was the one where you pulled the string and it talked!
I had Tweety everything!! I even had a Tweety birthday cake one year! It was always interesting to see what sort of trouble Tweety and Slyvester would get into. Although it was mostly Slyvester getting in trouble!

What a wonderful childhood memory!! Just one more picture for fun!! Tweety in gangsta paradise!!!! I must say I've never seen a gangsta Tweety!! :)

Trip to Virginia!

Last weekend we took at trip to the mountains of Virginia. My brother lives in Bedford so we went up there to spend the weekend. I must say I've never seen such beautiful colors during the fall.

We also took the trip to experience the birth of my 2nd great neice! That's right I said great neice. There is a pretty big age difference between my brother and I, so he's a grandpa!! I actually have 2 great nephews also. No, all these babies didn't come from one woman, I have 3 neices. The oldest has the 2 boys, the middle neice has 1 girl, and the baby of the bunch now has a bouncing baby girl!!! :) I know you want to see her so without further adew, here is Desiree Star Penn!!!

This is my big brother in the picture holding her!! She is precious!!! And here is the proud Aunt Lissa!!

This picture was taken on the Blue Ridge Parkway on my birthday!!! This was one of the most beautiful views I've ever seen. But I haven't been to many places!!!
