Oh Happy Day!!

 Our grandson, Bubba, came home this afternoon!
 The doctors decided to postpone surgery on his kneecap as they think it will heal on its own since he can't put any pressure on that leg anyway. They figured most of his pain is coming from the rods and screws put in his leg. I appreciate your continued thoughts and prayers.

 Today was Grandparent's Day at Shelby's pre-school. (My granddaughter that is 4.) My husband and I were both able to attend. She was so excited, and her main focus was getting to eat those too tempting donuts over on the table next to where we were sitting. 
 Since everyone there knows our Shelby, they put 2 doughnuts on her plate. The little toot ate those and also 1/4 of a cinnamon roll. 
 Let's just say she had plenty of energy for the rest of the morning!
  From there my husband left to go and get Bubba, and I took Shelby to Hancock's. She had everyone in there cracking up as she never stopped talking, and they could all hear everything she said.
  We went up and down the fabric isles, and she spied some Ariel fabric. She pulled it down, and said that was what she wanted. I asked her if she had any money. She said, "No, but you do!" Can we say "rotten"?
  Then she found the Strawberry Shortcake fabric, and insisted on that also. It is so funny how she knows exactly what she wants and never asked for any other fabric.
  However, she did make the statement that she wished she could buy all of the fabric in the store, but she knew she couldn't. LOL That's a Mimi's girl for sure!
 This is Shelby wearing the poodle print outfit I made her. Her kitty just happened to match the outfit. She loved telling everyone that Mimi made it, and she also told them that I could make all kinds of stuff. I was laughing so hard!
Let's just say it was a fun and happy day! The first one this week!

You deserve a fun happy day! How funny about that little one knowing which fabric she wanted. You may as well make what they want or else they won't wear it! The pink outfit is really cute.
Now say the magic words. Post comment post!

So glad Bubba came home! It's amazing how quickly the young can heal! Still praying for him.

The lovelies used to love going to fabric stores with their Mimi (my mom)...what am I saying? They still do! LOL

What a wonderful upbeat post, Shirley! I'm so glad you had some laughs & lots of smiles & that Bubba is home now. Prayers continue for him & the whole family.

Wouldn't it be fun if we could get my sweet Caroline & Shelby together? They's BOTH talk non-stop & keep us in stitches.

I'm sorry I wasn't here for is wonderful God is always there for us.
Even though Bubba is home, I will pray for the challenges he will have to face as he recovers fully.
I read back all I have missed....I am elated you were able to meet DeeDee. She is a precious lady.
I LOVE LoVe THE CLOTHES YOU HAVE SEWN FOR SHELBY...SHE WILL BE HER GRANDMA'S SEAMSTRESS ONE DAY....maybe you'll pick material of Little Mermaid...ha...ha...ha
My Uncle Monte went on to heaven at 0500 today. He was one of my dad's brothers. My daddy is the baby of 5 children...and he is 77 so Uncle Monte has to be 78. He has been on dialysis for 15 years because the military gave him the wrong medicine and it destroyed his kidneys'... within a month he was in kidney failure. Very sad. It will be a full military burial.
He has 2 daughters and a son.
Many prayers for you all
