Happy Birthday OMA
Today is my mother in laws birthday and OMA we wish you the very best.
Have I told you all how blessed I am to have the in-laws that I do. They are both incredible people!

We hope you are feeling better after your little stumble down the stairs. Nothing broken thank goodness ~ just bruises and soreness.


Remember I told you Terry took her painting test to become a One Stroke Certified Painting Instructor? Well, as a thank you for me being her teacher she sent me these gorgeous roses! Thanks Terry.

The ladies at the frame shop at HL made this for the hometown heros! There is a parade going right through downtown Warner Robins on Saturday to celebrate their Little League Baseball victory! Congratulations WRALL!

It was an exciting game to watch and we all cheered when our hometown team WON the CHAMPIONSHIP!

Monday paint classes

I had two paint classes Monday. We paintd this landscape that we decided to call Summer Landscape.

Here are some pictures from the morning crew~





She won the drawing and took home the project piece I painted in class! Two times in a row now!

Lisa ~ Lisa won the project piece drawing in the evening class and took home the piece I painted.

Meeting with the builder today. Have prayed for days now for OPEN MINDEDNESS! I was disappointed to find that the house I really LOVE is no longer on the on the market. It has been in the family for 7 generations and although a contract was put on the house it was withdrawn because the family freaked at the prospect of it leaving the family - completely understand but am sad that it isn't an option any longer. Have a wonderful DAY!

Don't worry about the house....the fact that it is no longer on the market means it just isnt meant to be yours. There are bigger and better things on the horizon for you, I am sure! Can't wait to see what that might be. Love the landscape and thought the class did a great job getting that done in a two hour class. Congrats to the WR Little League...we even watched from up here!

Good morning Sunshine...I absolutely agree with terry on this one...when it's the right place it'll throw itself at you, that seems to be the way of things. Happy birthday to your OMA, she's a keeper, she is! The paintings are lovely. Now, for my news...you've been TAGGED, so for the info on it, you have to drop in and see me. The rules and all are there, just cut and paste them, it's what I did. I'm lazy. Again, don't worry, the house of your dreams is just a dream away.

Happy Birthday, OMA!

Terri and Bob said...

I agree with Terry, not meant to be... but better things out there for you!

Happy Birthday OMA....
I love the landscape you and the others did for your class...

and I agree with Terry about the house wasn't meant to be but I am sure something even better is in store for you...

Happy Birthday to OMA! I feel like I know her along with the rest of the family through your blog. I dearly love my mother-in-law and am so happy when I see someone else with such a blessing. Sandy, the house sounded gorgeous but apparently God has other plans for you and your family. Just trust Him! The paintings are so pretty. I can't wait to try it. Boy, you really caught on to the LL Baseball after I told you about it on Saturday. I dedicated my post yesterday to them. Steph, Ashley and Brandon and I went to the LL field and waitied for over 2 hours to greet them. They had a police escort all of the way from Atlanta to the LL field. It was awesome! Hope you have a good week and I can't wait for the update on the house situation. Hugs ~ Kim

Again ladies great stuff! SANDY isn't she the cutest! happy birthday dear one! I am glad you all had a super time! She looks fantastic...must be something in the water down south...lol!

Kari said...

Thanks for the add! I still find it hard to believe that I'm putting anything out there that anyone else would want to see or read. And yet, I'm so NOSEY when it comes to peeking into everyone else's lives. lol
Hope you can find a Brighton store near you. Evidently, I'm the last person in America to actually hear of the "Brighton" label. I had no idea they made belts and purses and jewelry and sunglasses and reading glasses and watches...I just thought their perfume sounded pretty interesting. I have really got to get more "with it". lol

Angela said...

I'm glad that your mother in law is alright. :) She certainly looks happy! Please wish her a happy birthday for me!
It is absolutely wonderful that you show pictures of those that were in your class. They all look so happy and their work is outstanding!
Great post!
