Ok, I need some fast brainstorming. I need some phrases to go before I end my poem PRICELESS.
Like, I could say Paying for Christmas this year was spendy. another cute sentence, then another, then my grandkids are the last of the poem. Sarah, your good at this...help me. Anybody??? Pam!?

More babies?

Yes, there are more babies being born in the Crapo family. Our only son, Jared and his wife Becky had their 2nd girl today at 1:30 PM. Becky did an amazing job and Jared was so good to sit still and not get in the way. ha-ha. Blair and I now have 8 grandkids. It's really an exciting time in our lives. It's payback time for us, so our kids will know what we went through, when we had them. You would think I had given birth today, I'm so tired, but I was just a proud mother and grandmother. It wears me out. Going to bed.... nighty, night.

Turkey Coma

I swear the food we eat on Thanksgiving is to die for. Why do we take days to get it all ready and minutes to devour it? Kelsey, Joe and Chance came over for leftovers. Brittany cut Chance's hair today and boy is he handsome. I asked him if he was going to see Grammy, Pappa, and JuJu. He said Livy to Nanna. Such a smart,polite kid. Here is a pic of his new do.

Happy Turkey Day

Happy Thanksgiving to you all. Whoever said "Grandkids are your reward for not killing your kids" was right. We've got almost 8 grandkids. Kelsey called me and said Chance pooped in the potty. I laughed and told her I'll bet she never thought she'd get excited over her child doing the #2. I'm grateful for sleep when it comes. They used to call my mom Snotty Lottie when she was young, because her nose always ran. They should call me Auntsy Ann because I can't stop fidgeting and thinking of stupid projects to do in the middle of the night. Yes, they are stupid when it's 1:30 in the am and I want to go in and start the quilt I put on today or start decorating for Thanksgiving. Maybe I'll do both. I'm thankful for family, friends, and the Lord, who has such great wisdom in all things.

Stop the Insanity!

Ok, this is bad. I may have to delete my blog. It's worse than my obsession with changing the color of my walls constantly. It's worse than my continually moving furniture, changing clothes umpteen(alot) times a day because they don't feel or look right. Now, I think of everyone elses blogs and how cute they are or the color or content of mine doesn't look right. So if you happen to look at my blog and it's changed, then you will know I'm in the insanity mode. I've been like this all my life. I can't sleep, so I'll get up and rearrange furniture. Blair is blown away when he gets up and his bed has been moved in the middle of the night. He is a sound sleeper. Before I was married, Mom broke her little toe when she got up in the night, and forgot I had moved the living room around. She stubbed her toe on the leg of a chair I had moved. Our baby grand piano is a piece of cake to move. Insane for now...but working on it, I'll leave my blog like it is.. I don't know, maybe the font should be a differernt color. Ok, ok the font is fine......for now.

Well it happened! Blair and I made it to see Jen and Brandon's twins born on election day. Something good came out of the day in spite of the election. Reese(girl ) was 5lbs 12 ozs and Deacon(boy) was 4lbs14 ozs. Everyone is doing fine and that brings our grandchildren total to 7. In about 3 weeks we will welcome a little girl to Becky and Jareds family. Oh what joy we are experiencing.
