The grandkids here to celebrate Grandpa's birthday!
Jessica, Lexi and Krew playing with bubbles.
I cooked more in the last week than I have in months!
Lynsey enjoying the benefits of cosmetologist baby sister.
Going from short hair...

To long hair.

In the last 6 weeks I've had to re-certify in

Neonatal Rescusitation
Advanced Trauma Life Support
Advanced Cardiac Life Support.

Keely came for the local high school graduation to support some young ladies that she's known for years. We did lunch with Lynsey and Kimmie.
What is she doing?
Licking Doritios.
They were stale and she didn't want to eat them.
Strange child.

Nate was home for a week.
Working in the oil fields has been tough for this little family.
They LOVE when he's home.
Krew and Kendrix can't get enough of daddy.
Had Lexi last weekend. We went to the Farmers Market and I bought her Cotton Candy.
And I let her eat the whole thing. Cuz Lynsey was picking her up to take her home. It's awesome being grandma! The End

"First "

Love the pictures. I agree..that is amazing to go from short hair to long instantly. Just like you, I give my granddaughter sugary treats when I know that she will be going home soon. That's the fun of being a grandma! :)

Sounds like you have been very busy at work. You need a little R & R.

I feel like I need some extensions.

Your grands are beautiful blessings! I especially love that last photo. Sounds like a whirlwind time for you; hope you get a chance to prop your feet up for a while.

That short to long hair is amazing:) Looks like it's gonna be a fun summer for the family!

Connie said...

It looks like you are surrounded by lots of love. I think it is perfectly fine to load up grandchildren on sugar and send them home, it only seems fair to me. TeeHee!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

So much going on in your world. So glad for all the visitors. Lovely pictures. Gee, maybe I could lick some Doritos but not eat them on my low carb diet :)

Julia said...

Thanks for sharing your week with us. There'a lot of fun things going on in your life. Thank goodness for families who keep us grounded. Upgrading medical skills must be an on going thing.

Don't forget to take time just for you. JB

wendy said...

Lynsey looks a lot like you. Soooo, she got hair extensions???
Such cute pictures. I am glad you fulfilled your grandma duties and loaded her up on sugar before sending her home(tee.hee)
Must have been fun to connect with the gals.
I am glad you are RE-CERTIFIED.
Next time we have a crises....I'll be calling you.

Saimi said...

If pictures are worth a thousand words then sista this post has tons to say!! Oh My things have been hopping around your place!

Queenie Jeannie said...

Great photos of a fun and busy week!!! I know you enjoyed every minute with them all!!!

g.suzie said...

I love Lynsey's new look. . .she is a knock out!
Very busy week in review Ms Tauna!
Your 'Grands' are growing up very fast, whoa
grandkids don't grow up so fast!
Where is the 'hairdresser' working?


StitchinByTheLake said...

First of all, and most important, how in the world did she do that hair thing? And instead of making it long can you just add more hair for those of us with aging, thin hair inherited from our mothers. :( If they're making bubbles it must be summer! I've done that cotton candy thing....payback I call it. blessings, marlene

just call me jo said...

Good times! Looks like weather in the "burg" was pleasant. Happy days are wonderful.

gigi said...

Gosh, that was a loaded post! Life sure is crazy busy these days for all of us. You have such a beautiful family. Long never looked so good :) Wow what a difference. Maybe we should all give that a try. Your back yard is so green and beautiful! So glad you are having great weather, you deserve it!
Come see me soon. Loves!

tammy said...

Maybe I should try licking all my food instead of ingesting it.

How fun to go from short to long hair!!

Love all the pics. I have a quite a few years to go, but I'm kinda getting excited at the thought of grandkids one day.

WhisperingWriter said...

Cute pictures.

I love cotton candy!

renee @ Singing With Birds said...

Such cute, cute kids, BIG and little! I'm so glad you have been keeping busy. Ready for a Boise break yet? It looks like you need one!

Emmy said...

She must have really wanted some Doritios- too funny

momto8blog said...

Sherrie said...

Love the cotton candy thing! Paybacks for your children! Love it! Love this post. So glad to see your cute grandchildren.

Thanks for always making such nice comments on my blog! I appreciate you!

Connie said...

You were one busy Nurse, Mom and Grandma! Isn't it fun to have family at home! (Isn't it fun when they leave?) Did I say that out loud?

Amazing hair!

mCat said...

What a fun post filled with fun things.

If I come visit, can I get cotton candy too? Grandkids and spoiling them are the best thing to ever happen in life.

jules said...

I love her hair. I would love to do that. I don't know if any salons around here even do that....

lifeinredshoes said...

Isn't being a Grandma the best? We get them all liquered up on sugar and then turn 'em loose!
We know families that are doing the same thing, working in the oil fields, and it is hard.
Your yard looks great, and the kids look happy. Must be doing something right :)

Julie Harward said...

LOL Wat to go doing the grandma thing, send them home happy! I love doing that too! Looks like you have had a ton of gathering times, Happy Birthday to your hubbie too! You have a beautiful family! :D

Butterbean Row said...

Thanks for sharing the pictures of your beautiful family! You are one busy woman! and I didn't know that you are a NICU nurse. My next door neighbor is one and she teaches the classes that you said you had to take to re-certify.
That is funny that you let your granddaughter eat that whole sugary treat and then send her home. Bet Mama and Daddy were none too happy. LOL
Thanks for visiting me.


Grandma Yellow Hair said...

No silly not the waist but that is not a bad idea.

Grand kids are the best thing in the world and I love seeing yours.
