Say Cheeeeeese


Pardon me

While I show off my precious grandbabies

Maddie, Lil Guy and Coral Lynn
Miss Emma and her big brother Ty
Cameron is as precious as can be and such a good baby!
Being a gramma is the bestest!


Last week was the worst week of my life!
I was sooooo sick!
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday I could not get out of bed, I slept for 3 days, I didn't even have the strength to lift my head.
Thursday hubby came in and I was hunched over looking pretty bad, he felt my arm and said I was in fire!
He proceeded to wrap ice cold cloths all over my body while I complained the whole time.
My fever finally broke and we rushed to the doctor.
I got a shot of antibiotics and a script and by sunday I was back to normal!
Well as normal as I can be! te-hee
I never want to go thru that ever again!
I think my immune system is outta wack..... it seems like whenever I get with crowds of people I catch some virus or something!
Any suggestions for building my immune system?

I have missed you all so much!
I hope you are having a great week!

P.S. thank you for the emails and bloggy love while I was in bed!

Michael Jackson...we will miss you

Its a very sad day here at Cherry Cottage.
We are mourning the loss of a great man, a super star,
Michael Jackson!
We are 3 generation MJ fans.
It started with me..... taping every poster and snippet of The Jackson Five from the teen beat and tiger magazines all over my bedroom walls in the 70s.
I remember my friends and I swinging on the swings singing their songs as loud as we could!
Then in the 90s our oldest daughter started her love for MJ...
she still has the MJ doll santa bought her one christmas morning!
Our youngest daughter continued the MJ love and started collecting all of his Vinyls and cds.
When the news of his death reached our cottage tears were shed but when her best friend called it turned into a cry fest!
They have both been in love with Michael since they were in middle school and to this day wore his pins and listened to his music!
We will miss you Michael......
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family and children!

I hope you find simple things in your life that make you smile today!
God Bless,
