"Hugga"'s Memories

I sure hope you want to see pictures of my little J-Luv, because I've got LOTS of them!
First, let me explain "Hugga".  When Jackson was born and I was officially a "Grandma" - due to blended families, I was one of three of Jackson's grandma's.  So as not to confuse the little tyke, I decided that I wanted him to call me "Gigi".  All was well, until Jackson's recent visit.
We tried and tried to get J-Luv to call me "Gigi".  Nope...didn't happen.  Then, we tried and tried to get him to call me "grandma".  Nope...didn't happen.  J-Luv decided that I was "Hugga".  Every time he wanted to be with me, he would always say "Hugga".  I LOVE giving and receiving hugs, so "Hugga" works well for me.  I'm pretty sure that one day,  he'll call me "Gigi"...but if I always remain his "Hugga", I'll be a happy camper!  On the other hand, Grandpa was immediately "Bampa".  We had a WONDERFUL two weeks being hands-on Hugga and Bampa!

The "King" of the Castle
(Okay, so this is the little guy in front of Cinderella's Castle at Disney, but he was definitely the king of OUR castle!)     :)

My beautiful little beach boy! He LOVED playing in the world's largest sandbox!
He loved trying out new parks!
(and though he didn't say it, I'm pretty sure he enjoyed being "hugga's" little "fashionista"- who says boys don't like to rock plaid?!)  LOL
 Oh, how he loved the parks!  :)

Checking out fishing poles w/ Bampa

Bampa and Hugga "might" have endulged him w/ a little slide of his own.

He was so stinkin' cute w/ Pluto and Minnie.  He LOVED visiting them!

Every cute lil Disney Visitor needs their own "ears"

Mimicking Snow White...I swear, this wasn't staged!  :)

Okay, okay...enough pictures for one blog post.  Don't worry, I have LOTS more that I'll be sharing in the days/weeks/months/years to come.  Suffice it to say that J-luv had Bampa and Hugga wrapped tightly around his heart.  We feel so blessed that we had the time to spoil enjoy him so much.  He won't ever remember our visit together, but we'll NEVER forget it!!!!
Hugs and Grace,

No stitching, No stash

I'm very happy to say that this month I didn't spend a single cent on stash.  Now, if you would ask me if I had spent "more than a single cent" on my little baby-love Jackson,  I would be a hot mess.  Lol.
Because of  our wonderful visit, I've had neither time for stitching nor stashing.  I have lots and Lots and LOTS of pictures to post soon.  Now that my favorite little family is back at their home safe and sound, I have a bit more time to stitch.  I'll have an up-date pic on that as well.  In addition, our own not-so-little guy received some Whoo-hoo news in regards to being admitted to his college of choice AND in receiving a scholarship to said college.  It's been a wonderful month around here - one to remember and treasure forever!!!

Grandma Paws

I am just one big 'ole giddy Grandma this week!!!  The little guy pictured above is coming to spend a week with his "GiGi"!  His mama and daddy (my son) are going on a cruise (to celebrate surviving the little guys' first year) so Grandma and Grandpa and the not-so-little Uncle are going to be watching this cutie while they're away.

I swear, I feel like I have hours and minutes counted until I get "mama paws" on my son and his wife and "grandma paws" on my little J-bug.  It's been a while since we've had a little one around here, so we're hoping we remember the basics.  (we already have the head-over-heels love for Jackson part down pat!)

We have some fun adventures planned for Jackson and have built in lots of time for running and chasing.  I wouldn't mind some cuddle & snuggle time, but I'm not sure this busy little just-turned-one is going to go along with that.  :)

No matter what, I am just so thankful to have this time with all my sweeties.  The fun starts Thursday...I just have to be really patient for a few more days (hours and minutes!)   :)

Hugs and Grace,
