It's Almost Over ... Too Quickly

Hi Sweet Friends

First I'd like to thank each of you
Who visited my home office/creative space
Through Blogland
It was so much fun getting everything ready
And having a clean craft room
I appreciate your visits and kind comments

What has happened to summer
Although it is still hotter than H...
Here in the desert southwest
I cannot believe that school starts for some
of our kiddos on Monday
And most of the rest of them on August 1st
It seems like they just got out for the summer
I want time to slow down

Speaking of time slowing down
My 3 K's are getting so big
And their personalities are surely visible in this photo
I'm having trouble believing that
My little K~Bug just turned 12
Next year she'll be a teenager
How can I be that old???

Her family had a sweet party for her last weekend
Her Golden 12 on the 12th
She was so appreciative and happy
To have so many come celebrate her

Her cousins and a few of her girlfriends came to
Help Celebrate as well
I feel like we were just having her baby shower
Not too long ago

I forgot to take photos when the cousins were
Together swimming at my house on Thursday
So I made them pose for photos afterward
You can tell they just LOVE when nana/aunt Cindy
Gets the camera out - LOL

I kind of forced my niece to take a selfie with me
Not sure why
My hair is WAY too long
No make up on  - After swimming for 2 hours
And I've gained so much weight back
However, life is life
We are cute and have too much fun being silly
So who cares about the rest

Well, It's still hot in Phoenix ~ 113 today
But as I mentioned on Instagram the other day
When it was 115
Each day that passes brings us one day closer to fall
Which starts about mid November here - *wink*

Have a Happy Day
Blessings from Arizona


  1. AZ is too hot for me. Now in rehab recovering from surgery.

  2. I know it is hot hot hot but with the pool I am sure that is a great way to cool off on these hot days. When we are all freezing you will be loving that AZ weather for sure.
    Love all your sweet pics of the girls. Beautiful family.

  3. Your girls are so sweet. Isn't it hard to realize that they are growing up so fast? It happens so suddenly. Stay cool in that awful heat. So glad you have the pool to cool off in.

    Have a good week.


  4. Looks like a very happy crowd for your K-Bugs celebration! Even when those kiddos and other family members aren't crazy about having a photo taken, just do it will always cherish those memories! I can't believe how quickly time goes by and never more evident than when you are looking at your Grands.

    It does seem crazy that summer is going by so quickly. School starts here in Gilbert on Monday, but I think our Scottsdale Grands start the first week in August. I'm not sure when the California Grands start, but they are moving into their cute little bungalow this coming Friday....hope it cools down in LA as their little house has no air-conditioning!

    I am trying not to complain about our heat, but it has been so very oppressive! I'm thinking it's about time to go stroll the Fall aisles at Hobby Lobby and pretend it's somewhere close to Fall temps!
    Hugs, Carol

  5. Hi Cindy, happy times making special memories with family. The girls are adorable. Yes, the season is flying by and soon the kids will all be back in school. I think they go back in early August here too.
    Enjoy the pool and stay cool. That's where I'm heading too.
    Love your header!!
    Have a great new week ahead. Blessings, xo

  6. Happy Sunday to you Cindy, You've been quite busy! Love seeing all your grands-they are so cute. Your niece resembles you; both so pretty. Hope you have a good week.

  7. That is entirely too early for school to be starting up again. Poor kids! I like your selfie.

  8. I think you look great! I tell ya, I'm not near as vain as I used to be when I was young. And you know what? I like it that way! Life is too short to worry about how you look all the time. It's more about how you feel. Looks like you were having a good time with all the kids. School starts back here next Thursday. Weird to be on a Thursday, huh? I will not complain about the heat here since it's hotter where you are. I wouldn't want you to laugh at me. Ha!


Hi Friend, I read and cherish every single comment you leave! You bring Joy to my heart! Blessings, Cindy
