The day we have been waiting is here...

January 20, 2015  Happy Birthday Miss Penelope Lee Saint! Weight 8 pounds 1 ounce
and 20 inches in length.  Happy parents of Ondrea (my daughter) and Andrew Saint.

Proud grandmothers: ME and Lisa! Since Penelope did not come on or near her due day Lisa, bless her heart, changed her return flight twice. The joys of living out of state. NOT!


 
 
Two day stay in the hospital everyone is so happy to be home!

Sooner then later I will catch up....

Ollie is hanging around well after Christmas! He demanded to be around for the                       birth of my grand daughter...

The bag you see here was from my wonderful tatting friend Zarina ZA from Malaya.
Carrying my tatting supplies: Thread and holder, beads, thread cutter, small light. If I need if for my project...its in here!
Just perfect to take along my tatting needs! She knew I collected Monopoly games and since I DID NOT have one from Malaya, she found one and sent one to me! Took 2 and a half months to get it....well worth it! *smile*.


                                         Now I just need a  few friends to play!



A little something I crochet for Miss Penelope Lee. A baby size afghan and a turban to match.
 
                                        January 13th and rockin' that bump!


Meet Pearl. She is my roommate. Having fun catching bugs on the tablet! LOL

You tell me....

 
 
....how does one pick from over 200 flavors of milk shake and or malts?!!?
I finally decided on Dark Chocolate  ice cream with Carmel and Sea Salt. Yes, it was awesome!
                                              




 A girls day out......in the town of Roseville. I just love the graphics on the wall in the 'wine section'.

Ondrea and me!

                                                   

 This was a 'new to me' day. Spent a lovely afternoon at Rocklin-Disc-Golf-Course. Fun, fun, fun! Here is the 'starting' spot. Toss, then go find the disk and try one again to get the disk to the as close as you can to the 'hole',  more then likely not the correct term...






 

                                
Love the disk bag cart!














 Time to grill! I could not believe the awesome weather.....


 
Jalapeno poppers and grilled chicken! Perfect ending to a perfect week-end...
while patiently waiting for Miss Penelope to make her grand depute into our world

Finding a 'trail'....

This was fun, but because I get so turned around I didn't get to finish the trail. Always another day to see if I can complete it.

                                    A peek of the city...

And this is why, my friends I am in Northern Calafornia...to be with my lovely baby girl AKA soon to be momma!

        Tatting booties for Miss Penelope Lee in Princess Cinderella Blue.

Day 2 of walking January 1, 2015

 

 
This time I went in the opposite direction. Saw some really cool things like the creek in the above pic. Even found a KMart...that happens to be closing. 70% off...I was kind to my body by not shopping because that would have been a 3 mile walk with plastic bags.

Walking back to the apartments I watched this awesome sunset...I would have taken more pics but I had to step it up a bit...soon it was going to be dark

Now its time to start my walks....

 
                                December 31st: What? Push a button!?!?!?! Talk about wastin' time when I have to stop and wait for these silly things.

 
 
                                             Bike lane!?!?!?!  OMG Do I dare...*smile*
                                               See the mountain in the background?

 
  Ahhhhhh, but look at that view. Snowcapped mountains in the background.  For me, this was a very calming, breathtaking moment when I turned back and saw this. A great 6 mile walk.

Bags are packed...

Here is Miss Penelope Lee's choice of wardrobe. She is going to pick and decide which goes best with 'skin tone'. You know how us ladies can change our mind at any given time. Well, mom's preparing for that. LOL


 
Had a grand day at Crocker Art Museum in downtown Sacramento. A great day to also tour old town. Later that evening we stayed for a Christmas light show, telling a story about the town.



                                                  An awesome night.


Baby daddy Andrew had his birthday the day before. My daughter Ondrea went out and took to his a office a box of pastry's for him and the staff~ Lovely jester.  
Her birthday is the next day and has always loved ice cream cake. So look what we found....a zebra cake! Her favorite all the way around!

                       AND Andrew even cooked her birthday too!! What a guy!

Let me tell you...

...about the last part of December. What you see is the plane heading towards the Sacrament, California airport. Lovely flying in at night.

I am here for 5.5 weeks to await the birth of  my new grand daughter. This is my youngest daughters first baby, so you know I just had to be here!

                                    A northern California sunset, just beautiful.
 
Here we are Christmas day at Hidden Falls on a 3 mile hike.

                                                 Soon to be dad, Andrew.


                                                 Yes, that's 'baby momma'.
