The angels are rejoicing today....

My sweet Grandma Betty lost her battle with cancer this afternoon. She beat breast cancer & stayed cancer free for 10 years but then it came back & she wasn't able to beat it this time. She was living in her home, with a little assistance, up until a week ago so this seems very sudden to me. I could not have asked for anything more from a grandma. She was very nice to everyone all of the time. I remember when Gavan & I got married he said that he had never know anyone as nice as her. She was a widow for about 40 years & I never knew her to be sad about it. Of course she missed my Grandpa but she made the best of what she was dealt & truly enjoyed her life to the fullest. She had 4 children, 10 grandchildren & 3 great-grandchildren with one more on the way & she absolutely loved each of us with her entire heart....there was no doubt. I will miss her a ton but I know I'll see her again one day!

My Grandma with Rosson last Memorial Day....his name was her mother's maiden name.
And Jaylen with her on Memorial Day last year too.

Grandma, I will miss you dearly but love you forever.

The less laundry, the better.....

I'm all about doing less laundry so if this is how my kids want to run around all spring & summer then I'm totally okay with it! Jaylen strips down pretty much everyday after we get home from school or errands or whatever & now I guess Rosson is following suit. She's my "hotbox" as I like to call her & constantly wants to be naked! We got the sprinklers out today & they had a blast in them. I see many, many more sprinkler days in our future.
By the way, this chair was mine as a kid & they both LOVE sitting in it. It is starting to come apart a bit & has puzzle pieces stuffed down inside it but it's a great chair cause it doesn't tip over easily. Rosson is quickly becoming obsessed with Toy Story so he will get his blanket, sit in this chair & point at the tv for me to turn on a Toy Story movie. It's pretty cute & he just squeals in delight when the movie comes on!
