SWIMMING FUN

Cheria chattering about... 3 Comments »

Madison’s Aunt Amy gave her a swimming pool as part of her 3rd birthday gift and Madison certainly has enjoyed it.  Today after I got home from work I watched Madison playing and just had to grab the camera and snap some pictures and these are 3 of the best ones.

The first picture shows Madison when she first got into the pool and as you can see,  the water was just a bit chilly, but in the next 2 pictures she had gotten use to the water and was having a great time.  She sure is a cutie and wanted GranGran to get in with her, but I had to tell her that it is a ‘kiddie pool’, not a GranGran size pool.  Maybe one of these days we can put in a pool that we can all enjoy. 

Love you Madison and have a great childhood.

SLEEPING ???

A few days ago I left Madison sitting on the couch watching TV while I was cleaning in the kitchen and when I went back to check on her she had disappeared.  I felt sure that she was in the office with Papaw Rick, but nope, she wasn’t there.  Finally, after hearing a giggle I found her at the end of the hallway which leads to our bedrooms, sitting in the corner playing with her doll.  I ran to grab the camera and when I came back to take a picture I found her laying on the blanket and if I had not known better, I would have thought that she was sound asleep.  Nope…she was playing ‘possum’.  She is sooooo adoreable and a great little actress.  Just so happens the door she is laying in front of is the bedroom where she sleeps as does her sissy Olivia and Aunt Amy when they sleep over.  Love ya Madison!!

MS SKITTLES

As seen in the previous writing, Olivia has spruced up her hair and Madison calls her either “Rainbow” or “Skittles”.  Olivia really loves her new coloring and the rest of use like to tease her about it.  I figure she is a teen-ager for a short while, so let her have a few things that are out of the ordinary.

The first time Rick saw her hair he told her that she looked like she had been standing in a ‘paint store’ underneath a ladder and the paint cans had fallen on her.  She just made one of those “you’re crazy’ looks and went on her way.

No matter what color the hair I will always love and be proud of Olivia and probably continue teasing her as long as I live.

SISTERLY LOVE

As a 15 year old Olivia has become just a bit picky about who she lets hug and give her kisses, but Madison loves to give and receive them still (most of the time).   As you can see, Olivia still loves getting hugs and kisses from her sissy as much as Madison loves to give them.

A couple of days ago Olivia decided to have her hair spruced up a bit and she has now acquired the nickname of “Rainbow” or “Skittles” which she seems to be enjoying, and Madison is quick to correct anyone who says she has red hair…it is STRAWBERRY BLONDE.

Those two girls are so very precious and I never realized I could love any kids as much as I do my daughters Amy and Tami until Olivia and Madison came along.  I thank God every day for letting me be Mom to two great girls and GranGran to two fantastic granddaughters.  And Papaw Rick is just as proud of all of them.

MRS. HELTON HAVING FUN

Mrs. Gay Helton is one of our most precious friends, along with her son Teddy and his wife Phyllis.  From the time we first met them we felt as if they were family and Rick and I thank God for sending us such great folks into our lives.  The three of them live the true meaning of what a christian should be.

Unfortunately Mrs Helton had a very serious fall and broke her hip a few weeks ago, so she isn’t getting around very well right now.  We pray for her quick recovery and when she is up and about again I’m certain she will be out doing the things she loves most.  While visiting her this past Saturday, Phyllis asked if we had seen the picture of her wearing a wig and when we  hadn’t she emailed the above picture.  I loved it so much that I just had to get her permission to use it here.  This was taken recently at the Bristol Mall before a “Pickin’ Porch” show and it shows just the type of lady Mrs Helton is…full of fun as well as a serious lady.

The next picture shows Mrs Helton just as you see her everyday when she is not being funny and all this from a lady that has been on this earth over 90 years. And the third picture is Teddy and Phyllis, who always have a smile on their faces (I won’t tell their ages).

We love you and your family and hope you get to feeling better real soon…and thanks to the three of you for being such great friends.
