Return from Mars

A New Year has begun, and I am trying to get my act together, and once again touch base with all my friends in blogdom. So many of you have passed along greetings, hugs and best wishes through AC - thank you - that I thought I would pick up the torch.. ah...pen..ah...keyboard, and send hugs back to you too! Always nice to get a cyber hug and a hello huh?

What better way to get back in the groove than to post a pic or two of this most precious Grandbaby. Isn't she the cutest ever?

Mom had an appointment in the big city yesterday so I went along to do back seat duty with the Princess while mom drove. This little one does not like the car seat - AT ALL! She wants to wiggle and squiggle and squirm and MOVE. Buckles, belts, buttons and other gadgets on these new car seats really hamper this most active baby. After about ten minutes she is ready to howl - LET ME OUT OF HERE!

As you can tell from these most delightful pics - I did a good job at keeping her entertained for the journey there and back again. What fun grandparenting is. I am lovin' it.

Thanks again for all the hugs and hellos while I was letting my laptop gather dust. Here's hoping for a "dustless" new year. I will talk to you again soon.

It's nice to see you back. That is the cutest little outfit and from the smiles you were clearly keeping her well entertained.

Heather said...

What a surprise to see a post show up here! Welcome back! Don't stay away quite as long next time.

By the way - did you see the articles in Cahoots that Karla and I had published? I thought of you when I re-read mine, because you were quoted.

chrisb - Thanks, it is good to be back.

heather - glad you found the new post. No I hadn't seen the articles in Cahoots. I have a hard time finding the magazine in this little town, and Chapters gives me the run-a-round when I try to get them to call me when the latest issue comes out.

Anyway, AC informed me that it is now online. Must go have a look.

Welcome back, it's been too long. Your granddaughter is absolutely adorable and she looks smashing in that outfit.

I remember back seat duty, it was always an experience and always fun.

karla said...

CUPPA! How wonderful to hear, er, read from you! :)

You have been dearly missed.

And look at those pictures. That outfit is just too adorable.

Cuppa said...

Kila - she is isn't she?

Pam - yes, back seat duty is fun. I would rather do that than drive.

Karla - Hugs coming right back atcha!

Welcome back to Blogland.
I just assumed you were toooooo busy with cute grandchild to blog.
If I had a grandchild, I know I would be too busy.

Cuppa said...

Marm - looking for more from you too.

kgmom - Yep, the new little person in our lives had a lot to do with not having time or energy to write. Grandbabies are sooo much fun. I am lovin' this little one.

Hi Cuppa,

She is a cutie, for sure!

I met her already at anvilcloud's place. :)

Just thought I'd come over and say hello!
