Lots of words Wednesday!!

Cielo at House in the Roses is hosting a garden party this Saturday, the first day of summer. My garden is pitiful at best but I do have a few potted plants with some shade impatients that I can share. I wish I had some roses to share photos of like alot of you guys do. I love seeing your photos of your roses. You have to go and visit Cielo because a visit to her blog is like going to your favorite Bed and Breakfast. Go here to read all about the garden party.
Okay, now on to Brenda's Photo Challenge. Joni from Just Joni is the hostess this time and she has picked the theme of orange. Go over to Joni's and play along with us. She has a link on her sidebar of everyone who is playing along. I am working on adding a link on my sidebar also so you can just click and see everyone's great photos. The next challenge is on June 28th so you have plenty of time to play along. Most of these gals are new blogging friends to me except my good buddy Donna but everyone of them have been so sweet and encouraging and I love making new blogging friends. I also like to see how creative everyone is in choosing their photos. So check out both of these fun things going on in blogville.
Okay, on to grandbabies. LOL Do I post too much about my grandbabies?? Oh well, I just can't help myself. I thought this photo was so cute. My little old kitty Cleo decided to take a nap with Sydney on our bed. Cleo has decided that this little one is okay. She can't pull on Cleo's tail like Maddie does. Maddie loves Cleo and thinks it is so funny to pull her tail as she walks past her. Cleo is not amused. LOL So to make up for it, every afternoon it is Maddie's job to give Cleo her treats. Maddie takes great pride in this job and throws all the treats on the floor for Cleo and then claps for herself because of doing a great job. LOL Poor Cleo, once the queen of the house and now banished to a servant.

And I love this photo. Maddie and Papa went swimming in the pool the other day and look at her face. It's just plain joy. I am having a baby shower at our house this weekend for my nephew and his girlfriend so I am OCDing over the house and preparation. I'm in charge of the desserts and party favors and decorations and his Mom is taking care of the food and beverages. I had this idea of filling up small baby bottles with pink candy(it's a girl) but am having trouble finding what I want. Do I stress myself out or what? Anyway that's what's going on around here, busy, busy time of year but summer is my favorite time. Have a great Wednesday!
