The many cute faces of my youngest granddaughter

Her rag doll that I had made for her from Bright Eyes. I made the M as well.
Her beautiful bedspread. It was purchased after the letters were made.
It matches the letters perfectly......yep, her name is Mabel.
Happy Memorial Day
She has great big eyes but when she smiles they disappear.
Unless she smiles like this.
Or when she eats oreo cookies.
What a cute bathing beauty she is.
All of these pictures were her making faces at me. She looks a little pale because she applied her own sun block.

We just think she is adorable. She kinda looks like Drew Barrymore when she was in ET. She has a squeaky Minnie Mouse voice and talks up a storm. I miss that little face. She is coming to Ohio in a few weeks for a visit. We will share her with her other relatives.
Baby Jacob (Vim out on a Wim) had his surgery. He is on a heart/lung machine and has a 40% chance. Pray hard for this little guy.
My kids aren't close to the forest fires right now. They can smell the smoke and see it off in the distance. When we were in the mountains we saw all the dead trees. So many from the beetles. Just a fire waiting to happen.
I have had a horrible sore throat. Just won't go away. I went to the doctor yesterday and started antibiotics..........but they need to work quickly. I have two scopes scheduled for Thursday. I haven't been able to eat the last few days. Tomorrow I will be on clear liquids and have to do the drink prep thingie. I am hoping to get some protein in today. Swallowing hurts. Before drinking the nasty stuff I have to have 8 ounces of liquids every hour for 8 hours. Goodness. Then after the yucky drink before the test another liter of the yuck. The prep part has changes since my last one 6 years ago. I have the upper endoscopy often......the last one was three years ago. Anxious to see if there has been some healing since I went gluten free 2 years ago.
The dogs started barking and in my jammies I looked out.......a lady walking up to the door with pamphlets, a young man in the driveway and then all of a sudden another man waving. Geez. The last one is someone that is going to help us get the yard under control. He had a roof man with him. Motioned to the lady "no" and the other young guy......I don't know what happened to him. Glad there was one person I knew. So I got dressed and straighted up the house a little. Hoping the next two days go really fast.
Again pray for Jacob.....thanks.

I love Mabel and her room. Mabel was my Daddy's mother's name so I love it. What a cutie pie!

Hope you get over being sick. I hate being sick and I bet you do too.

I'll pray for the little baby even more.

Mabel's sure a cutie! Love the rag doll and that bedspread looks so good with the letters!

Bright and pretty bedroom.
Yes, Mom is up to date on her pneumonia shot..it may be a allergy related type as she gets it in the spring/summer time.
Hope your tests go well...don't sound fun at all!

Hi Debby, Hope all goes well for you and that you're feeling better fast. I love Mabel, the name and the sweetheart. I hope your family stays safe and that they are a ble to bring those devastating fires in Colorado under control. God bless Jacob and family. love, penny

Shirley said...

Hi Debbi, Your granddaughter is such a cutie. She is probably just a little spoiled like all grandchildren. It is our job to spoil them. I hope you get to feeling better. If you are having an upper scope will they do it with your throat being sore. It is not fun. My allergies have been so bad this year. I wondered about your family. We have family in Colorado Springs and Loveland. Praying for your little Jacob and I will keep you in my thoughts that everything goes well. Take care. Hugs from Your Missouri Friend.

E said...

There is a lot of cuteness here! You sure have some sweet grandchildren :) I will be thinking of you and hope all goes well with your procedures and tests and get to feeling better soon. Hugs, Elaine

NanaDiana said...

That Mabel is just a darling little girl. She is adorable. You can tell that she is just full of personality!

I will be praying for you for your tests. It is always hard to have to have any kind of tests done..and sometimes the prep work is worse than the actual test.

I am praying for Jacob. xo Diana

Mabel! How cute is she. I agree, and I think I've said it before, you really do have extra cute grandkids. She DOES look like a little Drew Berrymore. Lucky girl!
I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well Debby. I hope that changes soon.
Erica :)

Heather said...

What a cute little granddaughter! Hope your throat feels better, Debby! Let us know how the tests go!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

She really is precious and I just love that Raggedy Ann doll you made! It is adorable! Did you make any others? I hope you feel better soon. I had a bad cold that lasted about 2 weeks...it sure drags you down! Take care!

vivian said...

Your Mabel is darling!!! And so is her room!! Hope you feel better!!


LBP said...

Your little Mabel is the cutest ever!!! Hope your throat is feeling better. My sister has Celiac's disease and has to eat gluten free. It is very hard for me to cook for her and I have to watch labels very carefully. I am always very surprised what has wheat in it. Like salad dressing!



Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Dearest Debby your Mabel is absolutely gorgeous. Just like her grandmother.
Hope by now your throat is well and you feel so much better.
Sorry your having to drink that yucky nasty stuff. It is horrible.
Take care sweet friend
Love ya
