I've been Tagged!

Well I have actually been tagged twice, the wonderfully talented Lindsey of "Crotchetdlane " tagged me a while back and Katarina "likeflowersandbutterflies " who makes the most gorgeous little designs I have ever seen tagged me yesterday, so I thought I should get busy and play the game!

So here are the Rules:
1.Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
Okay here we go!

1. I was a youth Director for about 15 yrs. I really loved my crazy job! Who wouldn't
love taking trips and doing Lock-in's with 25 - 35 screaming crazy hormonal teenagers!

2. I went from teaching teenagers to teaching Toddlers! Really there is not much difference though!

3.I love "QUIET " I love complete silence! I love to curl up with a
good book in complete silence! Must be because of all the noise I endured with the
toddlers and teens!

4. After almost 28 years I am hopelessly in love with my husband!
I still melt when I look into those baby blue eyes!

5. I am totally addicted to fabric! Which is why when I visited a fabric
outlet Monday I came home with this!

6. I went to a very small High School. The graduating class was 12!
7. I may have to break the rules because I am not sure if i have 7 cyber buddies who have not been tagged!
I am tagging
1. Katie mytoottoot
2. Aimee
3. Jamie
5. Jenn I would tag you if you would get your blog finished! LOL

It's Good being a Mimi!

I love being a Mimi and I love keeping my grandchildren. I had the pleasure of
keeping three of them yesterday and I was in Mimi Heaven! Now I will be honest
I love the idea of my grandchildren begging their parents to come to Mimi's House!
Here are a couple of my favorite Mimi stories:
when Andrew was about two his mom was taking a shower and had the house all secured (or so she thought she did) As she was drying off she heard "I Go To Mimi's House" Well like a good mom she wrapped her towel around her to check on Andrew, just in time to find him heading out the door repeating "I go to Mimi's House."
Needless to say Aimee gave all her neighbors quite a show chasing a determined toddler before he got to the road!
Now my oldest granddaughter Chelsea also knows how to play her "Mimi" A few years ago I get a phone call from her declaring "Mimi could you come over and bring me a Sprite, There is nothing to drink here" Of course I get in my car and head over with drinks in tow, much to Aimee's surprise!
And then we have Abi who at 3 asked her mom "Can I just go live with Mimi since she loves me so much"
Well Nathan can not speak yet but I am hoping that in about a year he will badger his mom as much as the others do to stay with Mimi!
There is nothing as wonderful as snuggling up with my sweet grand babies! yes it is GOOD to be a Mimi!
Just so you know Pop thinks they are great
too,yes I do share!

Chels is growing up to be a Doll!

These blue eyes are going to melt some hearts some day!

Abi watched Nathan for me yesterday while I
did some cooking! She did a great job!

Look What nathan can do! I can not
believe he is already 5 mths old!
