Christy's Chocolate Covered Pretzels .:)

 These Chocolate covered pretzels are AWESOME. I LOVE this time of year when Christy gets the
urge to bake and create as she is doing it.:)

         Some of these have caramel inside of them or drizzled on them.Then added nuts, sprinkles and white icing drizzles too..mmmm..


I keep forgetting to take pics of her cookies. Chocolate chip, peanut butter, sugar, and oatmeal raisin.

I really like the pretzels though ...because I can enjoy a little sweetness without all the sugar that is added to the cookie dough.:)

Thanks for stopping in!

Hugs,

Chelsea growing fast.:)


Thought I would post a couple more pics of our baby girl.:) She is growing sooo fast and requiring more and more attention these days.:)

 Christy has been baking cookies and dipping pretzels in chocolate and then adding sprinkles etc. mmmm She plans on making more this afternoon when she gets off of work.

 I have been trying to fit Christmas shopping into my schedule. :) I hope to have more to show and tell you in the near future.:) Jim is off of work today..so here we go again for more Christmas shopping!!! :)

I'll BE BACK!! ...LOL

Hugs,

Georgia State Fair 9-26-14 - Kenny Rogers in Concert! :)



 This place was PACKED!! By the time the concert started, there was standing room only.:) We had to sit in the back seating area. Jim got our seats 45 minutes before the time of the concert. It was really nice to see and hear him...well...what we could see and hear from that distance.LOL Jim was saying that he wondered how old Kenny was now and the lady in front of me told him that she had looked it up and he was 76. He had his wife and kids come onto the stage towards the end and his kids sang a song for us. :) This pic of Kenny was from wayyyy back in the back. I complained to Jim that I couldn't get a good pic and he told me..that it was a great one from that distance.:)

 This is the background pic I used for my layout of Kenny. You may click on it and then right click and *save as* if you would like to have it. :)



                 This is the ride that I took the background pic from. :) No..I didn't ride it.LOL
By the time the concert was over, we could hardly move for the amount of people. This was nothing compared to how crowded it was when it turned dark.:) We left with my feet dragging.LOL


Thanks for stopping in. I know it's been a little while since I posted. Huge hugs!!

More pics of Chelsea.:)

 Say hey to our Chelsea girl!! :) She is about 4 1/2 months old now. Christy has her strapped into the doggy seat belt,getting ready for their trek up the mountain trails.Chelsea is getting bigger and bigger by the minute. She is going to be a fairly big dog when she finally gets through growing. We read that Alaskan Malamutes aren't fully grown until they are two years old.YIKES! :)Christy wanted a dog she could take on walks with her. Chelsea doesn't tire easily..so she will be perfect for the job.:)

                                                                 Awww...so CUTE!

                                          In the dog run section of one of our local parks.:)

                                                            Her stamp of approval?LOL

 They put a skate park in the park recently. This was the first time I had seen it. It looks like it could be fun ..and also scary.That there is concrete!! :)
                     She really LOVED the dog run! She is growing up sooo fast! She's already gotten most of her adult teeth in.:)



                                           This is Chelsea's Mom with some of her puppies. Christy told me that the  staff was always holding the pups when they got a free minute.:) 

  I know it has been a while since I have posted to my blog. This little girl requires a LOT of attention and when she finally takes her nap..I try to get as much done around the house as possible.:) Fortunately..she sleeps all night in our room and only gets me up when she needs to go out early in the mornings. Oh..and Facebook, keeping up with my family and friends also keeps me busy. Funny thing..they hardly EVER came to this blog to see what I was up to.:) I have learned so much more about my family and friends,their likes and dislikes and what is happening on a daily basis  since joining Facebook.

  A while back I posted about my brother,Tom...after his surgery for  Cochlear Implants so he can hear better. He is doing GREAT! Enjoying being able to hear the birds sing etc. He loves it so much that my older brother who has worn hearing aides since he was in high school is going to have the procedure done for himself soon. He's already been tested and passed the test for the surgery. Just a few more details to be taken care of. Please pray all goes well for him and the surgery will be successful!! Thank you!

Huge hugs,
Valinda

Doggy album with Chelsea!








For those of you who have been with me on my blog for the past few years, you will remember my Doggy Album I created for our beloved Freedom. I decided to use the album for our new addition to our family....Chelsea! Doesn't she look SWEET in these pics? :)

 Chelsea requires a lot of attention these days. She was nine weeks old last Thursday and I can hardly believe tomorrow she will be ten weeks old. Growing up sooo fast too! She has already taken up a warm space in each of our hearts.
 I don't get many visitors to my blog anymore..but for my faithful friends who DO come to see me..I am most grateful! I LOVE  YOU and your visits too! Thank you! :)
