Time to Share a little About Me....

or....a little more about me!

You may have already seen part of this post earlier this week which is the 2nd half.  I decided that since I don't cook, bake or anything like that, I would just share one of the things that I love in the fall.....my home.  Not to say that I don't love it all year (it has it's moments in the winter time), but living in the country on a beautiful hillside is what this time of year is all about....Color...

My home....after a very messy divorce, I met my husband Bill and we built this home together....well...
he did MOST of the building......but, I did too!  We are going on our 5th year.


Our view on a beautiful fall day....This is why I want to work from home when I retire!


It's just the two of us and our three dogs.  You might imagine that the dogs love living here too!


A VERY long driveway!


The first leg of my trip to work.... Not so bad right now...
give it a month or so and it will be a tad bit slippery!

And here is the re-run....

I'd like to introduce our newest addition to the family......Little Baby Ben.  I have three grown children, Charles, 25 (wife Erika), Ben, 23 (wife Tiffany) and Theresa, 20.  My sons have given me the wonderful gift of grandchildren.  My oldest grandchild Lacey is 3.  She is a blast!  I have so much fun with her.  I'm looking forward to Chloe and Benny to get a little older so that I can spend time taking them out on our little excursions...

Here is Little Benny (Born 2 weeks ago)....


Mom (Tiffany - on bed rest- she's better now!)


My Son Ben (Dad)


Me (Nonnie)


Bill (my husband- also known as Poppie Beeeel)

Little Lacey...


And lastly, Little Chloe...


 Charles, Erika and kids
And this is my baby Theresa holding Benny....the time goes by very quickly...
