I Can't Leave!!

Dear Ones, I just can't leave you and blogland! I have decided I'll just post when I post and hopefully you'll still come visit me. I just care for you all so much and you all have become such a big part of my life. So...for now I'll share with you what has been going on around here.
Mr. Precious and I took Sybbie and we were in our little town's yearly parade. That's me taking a snap of my family standing on the side of the street taking a picture of us!

 Of course we are loving spending time with our super hero grand children!
 I just wanted to show you Carter's hair and how it's grown. Hard to believe she was bald till she was two!
My little pun'kins.

Oh, we finally got carpet for our stairs. That was going to be the first thing we were going to do when we bought this house, but somehow it took three years! :) I have to tell you, when we went to pick out the carpet I was just drawn to this pattern and said, "This is it!" So we came home and I remembered that this was the same carpet we had picked out for our stairs in our Galveston home! Ha ha! Oh, well, I love it and it's a lot easier on my tootsies than the wooden steps.

 Then we traveled to Maryland to attend the Confederate Memorial Day in Baltimore. My sister in law is in many ancestry groups and she emceed this nice event and Mr. Precious spoke and represented one of his groups.

 Sybbie attended a car show in Saratoga. I always think of that song by Carly Simon "You're So Vain" when we go to Saratoga.
 Sybbie got a new trunk that sits behind the rumble seat.
She is a beauty. In case you have just met Sybbiie, she is a 1930 Model A Ford. We're members of the Adirondack A Model Club so we gather and do fun things with other folks who own these old cars. 

 This past week was the end of school programs and we attended Campies and Carters. Campie was so funny. As his little group stood up front to sing their songs, he would look over at his teacher and say - I know all the songs! Then he'd ask - can we go home now? He's a hoot!
Carter's program was almost like a production. The theme was "Friends". They sang and recited what they had written about what it means to be a friend. Carter has a singing part. I tried taking some snaps but there were too many mommy and daddy heads, not to mention cameras, in the way! But she sang so sweetly.

Then I can't leave you without showing you our little baby Willow. She is doing so well and growing like a weed. We're working on potty training and she's doing good!
 She loves me so much that I have become her chew toy! I ank anked her! Even bought some of the bitter apple spray for my hands and arms so she won't bite. She's getting better but I look pretty ragged right now.
But just look at that little face! Is she not darling or what? She has really brought back a doggy joy to our hearts. 
I'm still stitching too but I haven't framed any of my pieces. I just keep stitching, one after the other! I know, I'm a bit crazy. The weather has been so crazy. It's been in the 50s and we would turn on our fireplace in the mornings and at night and it's rained for almost a month! Finally today it got up to about 75' and hopefully our summer is here now. I know this was a long post and if you've stayed with me - thank you.
Hope you're all doing well and your summer is off to a good start!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

You're So Vain

You walked into the party
Like you were walking on a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf, it was apricot
You had one eye on the mirror
And watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed that they'd be your partner
They'd be your partner, and

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain,
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you?
Don't you?

Oh, you had me several years ago
When I was still naive
Well, you said that we made such a pretty pair
And that you would never leave
But you gave away the things you loved
And one of them was me
I had some dreams, they were clouds in my coffee
Clouds in my coffee, and

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain, you're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you?
Don't you?

Well I hear you went to Saratoga
And your horse, naturally, won
Then you flew your Learjet up to Nova Scotia
To see the total eclipse of the sun
Well, you're where you should be all the time
And when you're not, you're with some underworld spy
Or the wife of a close friend,
Wife of a close friend, and

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain, you're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you?
Don't you?

~ sung by Carly Simon
