Well, here I sit. I bet you people thought you must have heard the last of me, huh? It’s been a while! I headed out of town on Monday to go and visit Mither and Pop. Along with my entire immediate family! John and both girls plus The Boyfriend for bonus!
The reason I never posted to tell you dear people that I was jumping ship was because this trip was SUPPOSED to be a secret and a huge surprise for Nana. She knew Kes and Keelan and The Boyfriend were going to visit with her, but had no idea that I had made arrangements for H to be taken care of by my SIL and John had vacation and all the planets aligned just right and we were all going to go and be there together for the first time in years.
Sadly, I can’t seem to keep a secret, Kessa slipped up and her nana suspected that maybe John and I were going to come, too. So, when I blew it and practically spelled it out for her when I accidently gave up a clue, she figured it out. This was just a couple of days before we left and I was embarassed to tell the kids, because I had threatened them with certain death if they let her know and FOR ONCE they were actually scared of me I had expressed such a strong desire to keep it a secret and cautioned them…strongly, to keep it to themselves.
So Mither was in the know when we got there. Oh well.
We had a ball and did all sorts of things. Not to mention we got to go and see the “new” house that’s in town and Mither and Pop have decided they want to buy. The place they live now is so wonderful it’s hard to describe, truely a paradise, yet, it’s sooo much too much for them to have to take care of anymore. The house is gi-normous and the acerage is too.
Time to downsize. So this needs to be sold. Please take a sec and click the “button” in the middle and look at all 10 shots of their place. Tip of the iceberg.
What I’m trying to point out here is that while they are needing to downsize… BAD, it must also be a truly wonderful house. Or as Kessa and Keelan are fond of saying, “Nana-licious”. I’m not sure, as it’s a fairly new word and Webster’s doesn’t know about it yet, but it may be spelled Nanalicious. I will be talking with their people any day about the next updated version of that particular dictionary.
Moving right along…
Enter the new house that Mither and Pop have their hearts set on: here. Yes, go ahead and look at all the pics of it and tell me… Even though the bizarre realtor seemed to be fixated on the bathrooms and the outside(?), the inside is indeed wonderful. We broke into it took our own tour, twice and took a million pictures. I WILL be posting some of those in a future postypoo. They are still not even off of my camera.
Now, nobody is to dare consider buying this particular house… (Sush! I can too dictate this!) But if you would like to buy Mither and Pop’s present house, I am sure they would be delighted and the “new” house is just right in town and I could come and visit you when I go and see them! And I would, too!
Well people, this is enough for today. I have to get these pictures downloaded and catch up on some blogs! I am sorry I haven’t been reading, but I was visiting!
I’ll post again, soon! Free toes, everybody!

I loved all 10 pics of the old homestead and the ones of the new house too. I am a victorian kind of gal and love the new house. Let me know if they buy it so I can come hang out on that porch!

Welcome back! And wait … I thought they wanted to DOWNSIZE?! Here that means people move into a 2 bedroom condo. But ohhhh yes, you are in Texas. I can see how a Victorian MANSION would be downsizing ; )
I like nanalicious. I might even start using it today!

So that second one must technically be smaller… but I’m blinded by the HUGENESS of it. Okay, so there isn’t the pond and the acres of land… okay. Wouldn’t that be wonderful if one of your readers bought the old house? Kind of a “keep it in the family” sort of thing.
