Blondie (Aka Jane) spoiling little Addison!

One of the great joys of blogging has been getting to make and meet new friends!  I have been so lucky in that department.  I have met Karen, Marty, Jamie, Ceekay, Linda, Sherry and more while visiting my son in Arizona. I met the fun Keetha and her sister Pam this past spring while they were visiting Eau Claire.  And  this summer I got to meet Chari @ Happy to Design and her hubby Russ.  And last December, hubby and I got to spend a whole weekend in Galena, Illinois with Jane ( Blondie's Journal) and her husband Al. 

It was a picture postcard perfect weekend in this historic little town.  If you would like to read more about our get together click here.
And we have tentative plans to get together again in December!  Oh I can't wait!

I almost cried when this beautiful package was waiting at my door last weekend.   And inside?  Three absolutely gorgeous outfits for little Addison!  See the one above!  It is the softest pink with a matching blanket!  I love, love, love it!

And look at this sassy number!  Don't you just love it!  My daughter Katie was in awe!  She doesn't totally get this blogging thing, she is a face book gal.   But she is amazed at the generosity of my friends!

And my personal favorite!  Just look at this beautiful little dress with matching satin panties!  It is the most beautiful shade of rose, and I just can't wait for Addison to wear it!  And when she does I will post the pics!
They are all 3-6 months so by Christmas I bet she will be wearing them!
I picture little lacy tights, black patent leather shoes and a hair bow with this number!
Thank-you Jane and Al!  Addison, Katie and I are all in awe of your generosity!
Now I feel like crying again. But before I do..............

I took this pic of my niece Chloe (18 months) meeting her cousin Addison this past weekend.
Isn't that just so precious!  Chloe is my sister Susie's youngest.  So actually Chloe and Addison are first cousins once removed. However, I just call them little cousins!
Take Care,


  1. I've only had the pleasure of meeting one blogger when I just popped in on her at the post office she worked on our way back from Texas. It's was a joy in at time I wasn't feelin' much joy.

    I'm just blown away by the love and generosity of the friends in Blogland. I am in awe of all the wonderful 'love gifts' that have been sent to sweet little Angel.

    Those are the most precious little outfits, I do see we have a baby fashionista in the making. What an adorable kissin' cousin picture you captured. I see little Addison is never gonna lack any attention or love.

    God bless you sweetie and have a super day!!!

  2. Those are two of the cutest children I have ever seen, Cindy! Just gorgeous, both of them!

    And the clothes that Janie sent you are precious! She is such a sweetie, and I keep hoping that one day I will get to meet her and you both! I agree with your comment that blogging friends are just the best!

    I know what you mean about meeting bloggers. I have had so much fun "meeting" new people through blogging yet I have never had the chance to actually "meet" them for real, I wish at some point I could because I feel like they are as much a part of my life as my family.
    Hugs dear girl!

  34. Oh Cindy, those outfits are just precious. What a thoughtful gift. The picture of Chloe and Addison is so sweet, just two perfect little girls. Enjoy, this is so much fun. Hugs, Marty
