I have been married to my childhood sweetheart for 42 wonderful years. I have been blessed with one daughter who is grown and gone! She and her hubby have blessed us with a precious grandchild, Darbee Rae. She is eight years old and the sunshine in our days. I have always been a stay at home maid, cook, doctor, babysitter, taxi, wife, mother, and grandmother. I enjoy crafting. My interests include primitives, vintage and colonial styles. I love decorating my home. I enjoy traveling with my hubby and friends, reading, and trying different recipes. I am a Christian and enjoy activities within my church. I hope you enjoy reading about my daily adventures in crafting, shopping, and enjoying life thru the eyes of my darling grand daughter.

Posting for Nana

Hi everybody, I'm sure if you follow Nana's blog you know me already cause Nana puts pictures of me on here all the time.  This is Darbee Rae and today I am having a Darbee and Nana Date.  See school starts back on Monday and today Mommy had to be there early because all the kiddos she is going to teach get to come and meet her today.  So I am staying with Nana.  I wanted to go tell the kids how great my Mommy is and how lucky they were to have her as their teacher but she said I couldn't . Mommy has taught me so much everybody says.  They say I am so smart to be 3 years old but I don't know how smart I am suppose to be.

This morning started early.  So if you are wondering why Nana didn't stop by and comment on your blogs, well I am the reason.  I just love playing on her computer and since on Monday I will be going to "my school" (daycare) I guess Nana decided to spoil me a bit today.  So instead of her having her morning coffee and talking to you, this is what she let me do.

I love playing games on PBS Kids.org. and since I know all my letters Nana and me had fun playing alphabet games for a long time.  Of course Nana wanted some snuggle time and I gave it to her so we were both happy.  You know us kids learn early what Nana's want from us  and sometimes it's to our advantage. Maybe that's why she let me play on the computer sooo long ?  I want to think so.

I thought we were just going to play and shop all day, but Nana had other plans.  Off we went upstairs to her craft room.  Now I was thinking OH NO, I am just a kid.  What am I going to do up there? I guess she is already hoping I will take after her and love to craft.  She put me to work right away.

Stuffing a Christmas pillow.  That was hard for my little hands, trying to hold open that little space and then put that white stuff in.  I tried but then I had another idea.

Bet Nana is glad it didn't show up too good in the picture, but that stuffing fills a shirt out pretty good.  Yep, I looked like I was blessed.  I danced around a had a good time with all that padding ammm,,,, where it counts.  Made Nana laugh a lot too.

We were having so much fun and Nana looked at the clock and told me we had to go make the bed and get dressed for our trip to town for lunch and shopping.

I am a good helper.  Nana's bed is so tall, she let me get on it to put ALL those pillows in the right place.  I love snuggling in her bed, but come bedtime I always go home.  I  don't think I am big enough to spend the night yet.  She wants me to so bad.  I told her when I was eight I would.  Will that be a long time?  Don't tell Nana but I sure hope so..

This lap desk was heavy.  I 'm glad I don't have to move all the pillows and this heavy thing before I go to bed at night.  FINALLY..... we were ready to go.

I've had a rough time lately keeping up with my purse. So today I just brought my bilfolder and am going to let Nana keep it for me so I will not loose my money.

She was so sweet to me and gave me a choice where we would meet Papa for lunch.  Can you believe I turned down McDonald's and Burger King?  I wanted to go to Stevie B's and eat pizza and pasta.  Yea, that's what I told Nana.  I knew what I really wanted.

There is a story behind me eating ice cream.  When I was a tiny baby I could not have milk or milk products.  I am okay now with a little, but who can eat a little ice cream?  Mommy is always so picky but I knew my Nana and Papa would  let me eat all I wanted!!  And they did.  Boy was it good. But that's our secret.  We are not going to tell Mommy.  Sure hope it don't make me sick tonight.  If it does poor Nana.

Papa even took me to the game room and let me play a few games.  I think I made a great choice.  Who needs McDonald's every time?   And you know another reason why I had so much fun at Stevie B's?

I made a new friend.  And you know what?  He was so cute and nice to me.  Sure hope my Daddy don't see this picture.  He thinks I am tooo little to talk to boys!!

After lunch we went to Walmart and boy was that a mistake.  Everybody was buying school supplies and it was too crowded.  I couldn't find a toy so we just left.  Went by to visit Nanny at the nursing home and Mommy met us there. 

Just wanted to tell you all of this so you would know why my Nana was a busy Nana today.  I had so much fun spending the day with her and I hope I made her a little happy too.  I think I did cause she gave me lots of hugs and kisses and she smiled a lot. 

Oh and before I go, She wouldn't want me to tell you , but I saw a really cute prinitive (I can't say primitive too good)  item in the craft room, and she has almost made  100 post.  Wonder if it's gonna be for another giveaway?  So don't leave Nana and come on back and visit.  I know my Nana and she is always full of surprises. 

.  Hope if you are a Nana or a Grandma, or whatever your little kids call you , you hug them and tell them you love them like my Nana tells me.  Bye everybody.
Darbee Rae

    Tell Nana thanks for letting you post today.

  13. Well, Miss Darbee Rae, I'd say you ARE one smart 3 year old! You blog just as good as your Nana any ol' day!! So glad you filled in for her - we so enjoy your Nana too - and she makes our days almost as fun as she makes yours....and spoils us almost as much too! I don't have any grandbabies - maybe some day (not too soon though)....but I have a grandfurbaby...we call him The Snow Dog because he's the kind they use to pull sleds in the snow. He doesn't like shopping or playing on the computer much though. Glad you had a fun day with Nana - and hope you treasure it in your heart for always....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
