The Third One (Pumpkin) Said, "I am ready for some fun."

Goodbye Summer.........hello Fall.
  I am just beginning to start decorating.  I am thinking I might as well decorate for Halloween since I will be gone for several days coming soon.  This is the pumpkin fairy garden I did last year.  The Fall banner was a swap gift from last year.
I love the colors for fall.  This year I am liking more of the neutral colors.  Now for a little of what my life is like.
 The other day I had the two little guys that I Nanny for.  We were returning from B.'s pre-school and I stopped at a road side market.  The nice man there came to my car and helped me get what I needed.  The boys sat patiently in the car.  The little one not only wanted to be able to see me but touch me.  The guy helping us kept saying how cute they were.  They were cute sitting in my bug.  Earlier that day, I sneaked into the bathroom.  As soon as I shut the door all I heard was, "Nanny, Nanny, Where are you."  Here they came.  They thought it was fun to jump in the shower while I was in there.  When I went home that day they crawled into my car and wouldn't get out.  Love those little guys (3 and 2).
Yesterday I had an early birthday lunch with my friend.  Carolyn.  She is the sweetest person ever.  It is interesting about when I met her.  When my cousin, Jo, was dying in the hospital, I was supposed to start a different schedule at the school SACC program.  I was to move to the intermediate school.  I stated there my first day back.  I hadn't met Caroline until then.  Imagine my surprise when I saw her.  She looks so much like Jo.  I'm not the only one that thinks so either.  She is really funny and sometimes  her laugh makes me think of Jo.  She always wears pink when she is going to see me.......she knows how I love pink.  When she sees me she says, "Hello there little cutie."  That makes me laugh.  Caroline gave me a card that says "Hi cutie." It sings a little song about cute.  I can't believe she found that card.  She also tucked in a gift card to Disney....yippee and bought my lunch at Olive Garden.  I only worked one school year at this SACC program.  You know the saying, 'When God closes a door, he opens a window."  I don't think it was chance that we met.  We take turns having each other and our hubbys for dinner.  They are big dog lovers as well as us. They have BIG dogs.  One is a wolf dog.  (Just a side friend that I am going on the cruise with and who I will be staying with before and after the trip lives in the town where Jo was in the hospital.  I am thinking of visiting the hospital while I am there.)
I thought you might want to see Baby O.  The baby I nanny for.  She is now 7 months old and trying to walk.  Not kidding either.  This baby never stops.  She is scary as she crashes a lot.  She lost almost all of her pretty black hair .  It grew back really fast.  This is the new hair.  She is impossible to take a picture of her because she is always moving.  Remember back in May, I had my sister in law take pictures because her mom said the same thing.
I think in this picture she was about to eat the camera. 
 WELL, I am now grounded.  Mr. Cozy said no more babysitting or shopping until my trip.  My side/back are better but if I move quickly I have this lightening bolt pain.  Caroline and I did a tiny bit of shopping yesterday.  Target and T J .  It was too much.  I'm not a shopper.....although I am loving NOMORERACK.COM (not in caps though.)  If you join give them my name (Debby Messner) and I will get credit.  I have gotten amazing deals through them.  Check it out.  It is addicting.
So, off to do some fall decorating since I am grounded.  Hope your week has gone well and you have a wonderful week-end.

It's not chance. I don't believe in coincidences, just God-incidences.

I hope your back gets better quick and you enjoy your cruise. How nice that will be!

Debbie-You know for a fact that was Jo asking God to send that new friend to you! Those kids sound adorable and that little sweetie is getting big fast. Hope your back is better so that you can enjoy your trip without being in pain.

I had to laugh about them following you into the bathroom. I remember those days well. Sometimes SweetCheeks still does that-she will stand outside and talk non-stop while I am in there- lol xo Diana

It looks like you are in high demands. Nice having old friends around. Coincidence... umm, I don't know. I hope that you take care of yourself and rest a bit before your trip.
That little kid is some cute.

I think that you & Carolyn meeting was no coincidence. How lucky for you to have her as a friend.

Rest up & I hope your back is better soon.

Isn't it amazing how you are always taking care of everyone, but!!! Hummm?? taking care of yourself??? You best take Mr. Cozy's advise and slow down a bit so you have a fantastic trip!!!

Debby, I can understand you being grounded because you want to be able to go on your trip. I keep praying that your back gets better. Your little ones that you baby sit are so precious. They grow up so very fast. Have a wonderful weekend and just rest. Many Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Love your fall wagon. You need to take care of yourself. Your trip will be amazing. Darling pictures of Baby O. She looks precious.

I agree, God knows when we need a friend and always us one. You'll have to explain what the "Nanny ing" is about. Is it sort of like a foster grand parent? I think it's wonderful. Take care, and have a fabulous vacation. Hugs, Edna B.
