We're back from Atlanta

We had a wonderful time in Atlanta! It just all goes too quickly. Here's Stella Grace - our oldest "Grandgirl" She's such a sweetie and has a sunny disposition. She loves to pose.

We were so glad that we were able to plan our trip around our son's performance in "Tent Meeting" -- it's a great play and making it's U.S. debut in Atlanta -- all you Atlanta theater goers -- this is the last week - loved the singing quartet - lots of old gospel music.

Stella and I got a chance to "create" in the kitchen. These are our "Easter Egg Chicks" - (or are they Easter owls) - anyway, they were fun -- we also made some jelly bean cookies.

We went out to eat several times - this was at a tavern near their apartment - I think it was "Mitchies" -- anyway, here's Stella and her Daddy waiting for lunch. We also had a great dinner at Fox's Bar-b-que.

This is a not good picture of our lovely daughter-in-law Megan - she's the best! She has her pretty pregnant "glow" expecting our 4th "Grandgirl" Molly!

I told you that Stella loves to pose - so she enjoyed having a fashion show with the goodies Nana brought. Here's her Easter Bunny jeans jumper.

Next selection for our fashion show was another bunny dress.

Here we are in our Easter dress and sweater.

Stella loves her "Easter - princess - ballet" dress the best!

Who's that cute bunny in the dark shades?

We also did some shopping at our favorite consignment shop "Finders Keepers" -- I found a few tops for our upcoming Florida trip in the clothing store, and some linen table things in the homegoods consignment store. We also went to Ross and I found this cute white birdie basket plate -- It goes so well with the birdie Salt and Pepper shakers we all have. I thought it would be great for Sweet and Low packets. How would you use it?


  1. Stella Grace is a cutie! I make those chick eggs also but (sigh) Beloved doesn't really appreciate the effort :) Somebody better loan me some grandbabies!

  2. Hi Martha! Wow is that granddaughter of yours a beauty! And what a lucky daughter-in-law to have such thoughtful "mom" like you! I'm glad you had a good trip to Atlanta.

  3. Welcome back! You must be bursting with pride!
    Granddaughters are just the sweetest and little Stella Grace is a doll. I know how you feel, I just sent a package of spring dresses up north to my three.I bet you were laughing so hard together when you made those owl eggs. Your family looks terrific!

    ample to tackle whatever you toss at it. For 2 hours they can climb the rock climbing wall, play
    basketball for prizes, play whiffle ball games, and eat pizza and celebrate in the
    courtyard cafe. Before you step into this mess that you may wish later you could just scrape off your shoes, ask yourself,
    would you fix this person up with your best friend or even a stranger.
