Spending time with my girls/Bloggy question

I just love spending time with these girls.  I asked them to sit in front of the fireplace so I could take a picture of them for my Christmas cards.  They were surprised that they could stay in their jammies.  They sat down and wrapped their arms around each other.  And they giggled........alot.  They are 9 and 6 and couldn't be any closer.  They play together very well, even when they have friends over.  Recently they started sleeping in the same room in twin beds.   They have their own rooms but love sleeping in the same one. Makes me wish I would have had a sister.  Hope is a mom to Goose.  She keeps her in line for sure.  She even packs Goose's lunch for her.  Hope has no energy (like her Grammy)  Goose never stops.  Hope looks like her daddy and Goose looks like her mommy.  I watched them overnight this week-end.  They are so good.  Hope wasn't feeling well so it was a quiet evening for sure.  But in the morning there was Frisbees throwing, scooter and bike riding and hula hooping.
I
On a not so good note.....the buzzards are back.  Look closely at the trees.  Those are buzzards.  They sun themselves during the day and then hang out in the pine trees at night.  Our next door neighbor bangs a pan every night.  They don't like the noise.  Another neighbor let off a firecracker last night.  At least we have help now.....it used to be us alone.  My husband"s car has already been covered in yuck.  Hope we can convince them to go away this year.

QUESTION:  I AM HAVING PROBLEMS BRINGING UP MY READING LIST.  SOMEDAYS I HAVE TO CLICK ON SEVERAL DIFFERENT THINGS AND IT FINALLY COMES UP.  TODAY NOTHING IS WORKING.  GRRRRR.

SIGN UP FOR MY CUP OF KINDNESS SWAP.  YOU CAN PROBABLY DO THIS WITHOUT LEAVING YOUR HOME.  EASY, INEXPENSIVE, AND FUN.  LET ME KNOW YOUR STYLE, EMAIL ADDRESS AND WHAT KIND OF WARM DRINK YOU LOVE.

Hope we all have a good week.  Last week was stressful with the election and the time change.  Holidays will be here soon.  Can't wait to see your decorations and hear how you celebrate and prepare.

Debby, it's a blessing that the girls are so close, they are so cute and always smiling for the camera.

Christmas is just around the corner again and this will make nice Christmas cards.

Oh ...the buzzards are back, poor you... I'm glad that you are not singled out this year. if everyone make it unpleasant for them they might get the message. I hope that they go away.

Debby, I liked the statement..You need a cozy blanket :):) Those girls are so cute. Oh no not those nasty buzzards again. I do not like starlings...so I know I would not like the buzzards. Good luck with running them off. Smiles, Susie

They are so cute, Debby! They have the sweetest smiles. Oh no, not the buzzards! I've been so busy getting ready for the holiday market I'm doing. It is this Sunday and I'm looking forward to relaxing a bit afterward before getting ready for the holidays. Two days after the market, my son arrives back in Ohio for Thanksgiving. So, maybe I'll have two days to relax!

Hello Debby!
My those granddaughters are just so pretty! I love the jammy picture! Isn't it a blessing to see siblings just love each other like that?
I don't get any buzzards like that around here! But we do get some predatory birds, maybe a big fake owl would scare them off? I know they are popular around here.
Bless you,
Susie

Me too Debby, I always wanted a sister, and I have 4 brothers I might be willing to trade;-). Your littles are so sweet, and you are so very sweet to them. Children make the house all cozy, and the fireplace surely helps! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving my friend. I am grateful for you! Love, Penny

We saw a bunch of buzzards today, too. We have a lot of new birds of every sort in our feeders...hope the buzzards to come to visit! lol

Poppy said...

Hi Debby,

Your two little granddaughters are the cutest! How wonderful it must be to spend time with your children's children; so comforting.

Sorry to hear about those buzzards, what bother! But, the sound of your little lovelies' laughter should be consoling enough!
