Justin got another deer yesterday afternoon. This one is a seven-point and weighed 180 pounds!

Black hole and grandkids

Remember the 'black hole' I mentioned in my last post? Well, I entered it while searching for a video game in my grandson Gavin's bedroom! Gavin has ADHD and we are never surprised at what we find in his room. Anyway, I found the 'Lint Lizard' that I thought I had misplaced!

What was he doing with this? He even asked me what it was after we found it!!! I also found an ankle support that I thought I had lost! Anybody else have this problem in their home? Sometimes all you can do is laugh cause crying and screaming doesn't help!
Della and Maxel came for a visit yesterday. Della kept us laughing while Maxel kept us smiling.

 Dancing to the TV...........


 Blue tongue from her sucker..................

 Grandma and Maxel..........notice the spit-up on my shoulder!
 Grandma, Maxel, and Della.............chocolate face from eating M&Ms!

Love those babies! I'm going to be a great-grandma twice next year! My oldest granddaughter, Ashton, is due in March and her sister, Kayla, is due in May! Lord, help me and their mother, Janet!
