I'm in Kansas and Having a Blast!!!

I've been back home in Kansas since 12/29/09 after a 37 hour bus ride with Ezie, Mallory, Jace and my oldest grandaughter, Sabrina. The kids were so good on the bus! I was truely amazed with how good they were. We've been busy helping out my mom and visiting my wonderful siblings since we got here.

I LOVE being around my sisters again!!!! I will post some pictures when I get home on the 15th. As of last night I got to see all of my siblings, 4 sisters and 2 brothers. My little brother had a surprise announcement....they're having a baby!!! Yay for Danny and Deborah!

I also became Nana to 2 more grandbabies on 1/3/10. Leigha is 4lbs. 13ozs. and Liam is 5 lbs. 6oz.'s. This make 11 grandkids now.....8 of them being under 2 /12 years of age. Congratulations to Jeremy and Amanda!!!!!

I have to go help my mom now. I miss everyone so much......but I'm having the best time! I am so happy and so glad to be back home. It would be perfect if Earl was here...I do miss him terribly!

Have a wonderful weekend!!! We're celebrating my older brother, Mike's, 50th Birthday, a Christmas with my siblings and a baby shower for my niece. Busy, Busy, Busy and so glad to be a part of it all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
