BACK TO BAKING FRIDAY AND UNDATED PICS FOR JANUARY

Up to meet g-daughter on this cold Friday morning. As I got her settled and snuggled back down on the couch to wait for daylight and hopefully a little warmer temps I gazed out the window and prayerfully thanked my Heavenly Father for the life He has allowed me. I looked at g-daughter sleeping soundly as her swing slowly swayed from side to side and thought "there's no one on this earth more fortunate than I am right now" !!
I hurried through chores this morning as a brisk cutting cold wind made spending time outside pretty chilly today.
After breakfast I baked 3 caramel, 1 chocolate and 1 coconut cake for market tomorrow. It seems it has been a long time since I baked anything after taking last week off in the snow storm.
G-daughter calmly watched my activity from her perch in her little seat on the table.
After lunch we headed out to explore the estate sale that we used to go to regularly. I didn't find much ,only a set of salad bowls and a little nic nac holder to match all the blue willow in the sunroom.
We came home to another bottle then went to pick up g-son from school as his mom had a meeting this afternoon.
He was really hungry so we came home by way of Sonic and he had grilled cheese, fries, mozzerella sticks and slushy for his after school snack !!!
Mom came after the kids just as hubbie came in from work.
She bought g-daughter a new kind of teething ring and she loves chewing on it !!!
Hubbie and I did the chores then had supper.  I iced cakes tonight for a different kind of evening than I have had in a couple weeks.
Another winter storm was named today as Kayla gets wound up dropping snow in the western states before heading across the country. She is supposed to bring rain to our area only about mid week .
Since tomorrow is the last day of this month I need to get one more decade picture post on here of the undated old photographs I have.
These first two are of my mom's sister Hattie Holmes. Although she passed away when I was only 5 years old I still have such fond memories of her that I classify her as my favorite aunt.

 In this one Aunt Hattie is flanked by two uncles,Dill Laughter on the left and Larkin Ruff on right with his wife Lonnie Ruff standing.
 Larkin and Lonnie Ruff .
Love these old photos and am so thankful that aunt Hattie was a photo bug and made a lot of pictures back then.
Thankful for the blessings of today and striving to glorify God's name in all that I do.
God Bless and Good Night.

That grandbaby is GORGEOUS....

It's warm here this weekend (60) ---but the wind makes it feel cooler... Hard to know how to dress on days like this.

The picture of your aunt (2nd picture) made me think of you. Your face is similar to hers....

Have a great day.. Rain is coming here the next couple of days.

Hugs,
Betsy
