She's SOOO Punny!

My mom had traffic court this morning (I don't think the Grannie Nannie has ever sped before) so Annie had to go to work with GranDennis -

GranDennis said "Annie you are going to be my secretary"
Annie said "Grannie I going to be GranDennis' secatary - how much does he pay?"

I just don't know where she get this stuff -
By the way - GranDennis says he pays well - IN CANDY (that's gold to the baby!)

Happy Birthday Dear Reeser!

It was The Reeser's Birthday yesterday, wow how time flies! I can't believe she's already a year old - She is soooo cute and has the funnest little personality. When we got there she walked right over pulled on my leg and said "uh" - That's Reeser for "pick me up!" She had LOTS and LOTS of fun - Annie had a BLAST - She had been missing all of her priends and I must say the cake was YUMMY - We are just sooo blessed by that sweet little Reeser - it is ALL I can do not to walk out with her and never look back!!! Happy Birthday Sweet Reeser!!!!

First Day of School

Annie had her first day of school (it's her 4th first day - Mother's Morning out, Daycare, Flowertown last year and now her school school 3k-8th) I was sad to miss it but I don't think it started off with a bang - there was some confusion - Nickname chaos - Everything at school says Annie, mom called her Annabelle (THAT caused some confusion) She was sent to the other class and back but Annie was fine (GRANNIE was NOT) - so here are pictures from the afternoon when things are back on track!!!!

Thirteen GADGETS I can't live without!

1. My Hiptop Cell Phone - I can email, text and check my blog - Leslie and I are ALWAYS in touch - we would be LOST without it!

2.My DVR - Keeping up with my shows is a MUST and with a busy schedule like mine there is no way to watch everything when it comes on - and you can FAST FORWARD through commercials!

3.My MP3 Player - that is the ONLY way I roll on the treadmill!

4. My BRA - It is definitely a gadget for sure! I don't know how it does it but it holds these suckers in place and keeps them perky - it's function not fashion!

5.My CAMERA - I take that thing with me EVERYWHERE I go - thank goodness - cause I do catch some great shots and some funny stuff! AND it records so I can watch Annie anytime!

6. My Keyless remote entry to my car - I don't know how we lived before but my battery is dying and I am MORE than willing to pay the 200 bucks not to have to unlock my own door!

7. My Febreze Noticables - when you have a stinky dog and a small house these are a MUST - now when people come to visit I don't have to light a candle or spray!

8. My computer - without which I wouldn't be able to work - google or BLOG - I don't know what I would do all day without it!

9. My REFRIGERATOR! - I mean come on - It holds the chocolate milk, frappucinos, left overs from Les and Sugar and ALL the great meals from Our Daily Bread

10. My alarm system - One click of the pad and safe sleep is moments away!

11. LUNESTA - Well it may not be a gadget but it's something I can't live without! Or SLEEP without but isn't that the same!

12. - It is my FAVORITE! I love that there is a slide on my screensaver so I don't have to choose just one picture!

13. My YMCA card - I love sliding it through and hearing "Have a nice workout" ha - REALLY??? but then I see the smiling faces of Sugar, Claire and Buffie

Mountain Trip Monday

So as most of you know my life is a LITTLE nutty this month - Annie is living the Fabulous Life of...Annie! She has been staying at the lake most of the time and this weekend made a trip to the mountains (wow it's good to be her!) I was sorry to have missed it but thrilled the Grannie Nannie has gotten so good with the camera - She said Annie kept saying "tank you oh tank you - I wove da mountains" So here are a few pictures of her and GranDennis and her new friend Kyla - who she LOVED!

The right place the right time?

So I have always thought my life was just a LITTLE kookier than others - but NOW I have proof - this is a picture I TOOK at the gas station in town!!!
