Great granddaughter Layla just turned three last week. Her mom made her this ice cream cake for her birthday party. She is blowing out the candles.
Look how happy she is once the candles were blown out. Love that sweet face. She has on her new Rapunzel dress that her grandma Lizzy bought her. She is at that age where she wants to be a princess everyday.
Here she is in new PJ's with her new dolls. Tangled Rapunzel and Ariel little mermaid. Beautiful Layla came into our lives right before my brother Mark passed away from a stroke. Three years now. I miss Mark and wish he could have known Layla.
Yesterday afternoon, Ted picked up all the twigs and sticks from our whole yard. I was so happy he did this. He has one of those grabber devises and used it to load up the wheelbarrow.
Now come a calm day we can burn all these twigs. It made a big pile.
Monday evening's sunset. So pretty. I love all the colors.
I want to tell all of you about my dentist visit. I went yesterday to the endodonist . He took another x-ray. Probed around some. Said he did not see anything that needed attention. Then he tells me in depth about sensitivity. This may help some of you. I had that sinus infection and he thinks it was lingering somewhat. Dr. Aslin said , "if you have a reaction to heat or cold and it doesn't last longer than a minute, it's most often just plain sensitivity. But if the pain last longer or happens for absolutely no reason, it means something is wrong."
I was happy to not have any work done and I only had to pay two dollars and fifty cents , may share with my insurance. I prayed in the waiting room, in the chair and if my legs had not been jelly when I left that office, I could have done a happy dance.
Hoping all of you are having a good week. XO
Happy Birthday sweet Layla. Oh, how fun that she loves Aerial. My girls did too when they were little. Ted sure is working hard outside gathering all those twigs. The yard looks so nice. So glad to hear that all went well at the dentist office. I think you have the prettiest sunsets where you live, Susie. They are a treat to see.ReplyDelete
Sheri, One day Liz said she heard Layla and her mommy coming in the back door. Layla yells "Hi Gigi, It's me Ariel " She had decided to changed her own name to the little mermaid's name. So funny and sweet. Sheri, I am thrilled to be done with the dentist for another 6 months. Blessings to you and yours, love you, xoxo, SusieDelete
oh I hate to think of you so frightened,, thats so sad,, worrying about dental work is not nice at all. Your yard is lovely, I love that fire pit!! Layla, what a pretty name for such a pretty girl,, she's at such a great age,, dressing up is the best fun!!ReplyDelete
Thank you Laurie, I just hate being such a chicken , going to the dentist. I can't seem to help myself. I always pray to be strong. LOL We only burn yard debris in the fire pit. I do love my g.granddaugher's name it's Layla Rose. She so smart and fun. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Those are sweet photos of precious Layla's third birthday. I am glad to know that about sensitivity because I have that and it does come and go quickly.ReplyDelete
Karen, I hope you use sensodine toothpaste , it truly helps. I think I am having my sensitivity from that sinus infection . It just seems to come and go. Oh yes, little Layla was so sweet with her dolls. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Happy birthday to Layla! Glad things went well at the dentist office Susie!ReplyDelete
Thank you Pilar. I am so thankful to be done at the dentist for another 6 months. I go twice a year for cleaning and exams. Layla was so sweet at her party and loved her dolls. Makes me miss my girls being little. LOL. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh Susie, Layla is so flipping adorable...you are truly blessed!!! Now as for picking up sticks and twigs, I've been keeping up with that each morning just for something to do...LOL! In fact, a good friend recovering from open heart surgery needed a hand so I scooted over there to pick up too!...:)JPReplyDelete
JP, I do count my family as my greatest blessing. That was so sweet of you to help your friend with yard clean up. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Happy Birthday to your sweet Layla!!! She is adorable!ReplyDelete
Picking up twigs is a good thing to do. We use them for kindling out fireplace and in the outdoor fire pit.
Praise God you had a good report from the dentist!!! Now you can rest easy!!
I'm so sorry about you losing your brother. I can't imagine losing ours - so we must love our siblings while we can. My sisters and I will be cooking and serving after the funeral for a dear family friend's son who passed away Monday. He was just a young man.....
Linda, I have told Ted we need to bundle those sticks for kindling.:) Linda, you know I just feel something is still wrong with my teeth. They have never been this sensitive before. But two dentist have said nothing is wrong. I hope and pray they are right. Sorry about the passing of your friend's child. So horrible. Blessings, xoxo,love, SusieDelete
Hi Susie, Sorry I haven't gotten around lately-been so busy. Your granddaughter is so very cute. Glad you have a nice pile of sticks for a fire. Have a great week!ReplyDelete
Noreen, I have missed you...I will be at your site today reading what I have missed. Hope you and yours did well thru the winter months. Spring is so close...we could still have crazy weather, but pray not. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
So glad the dentist visit went so well! Your granddaughter is a sweetheart!ReplyDelete
Thank you Linda. Layla is a clever and funny little girl. I just wish I could have more time with her. Oh so happy , no dental work needed. :):) Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
I'm very glad you got a good report at the dentist too. Try not to worry and not to dance too fast! haha! Love your cute pics today. They make us all smile! Hugs!ReplyDelete
Diane, I was so relieved, no dental needed. :) Layla looked so happy to have blown out her three candles. LOL. Bless you my friend, xoxo, SusieDelete
Happy birthday to your sweetie pie and I'm so glad to hear the good news. it's not often we gte good news when going to the dentist or doctor. Happy March my sweet friend. xoxoReplyDelete
Thank you Susie. It so fun to see little children smiling and enjoying others. I think Layla was thrilled in her new princess dress. Oh yes, indeed, I was so relieved from the dentist saying nothing needed work...I felt myself almost get weak. :) Blessings to you dear friend. Hope all is going well. Robins are singing here today. xoxo,love, SusieDelete
Happy birthday to beautiful Layla. Aren't they just the best? Hugs and blessings, CindyReplyDelete
Cindy, Children make us feel so good seeing them healthy and happy. I am blessed and want to wish you blessings too. xoxo, SusieDelete
The little princess is so adorable.ReplyDelete
So so glad you don't have to do dental work. My legs turn to jelly just seeing the word DENTIST...I am such a big sissy.
BJ, Honestly , I can take a lot of pain...but when it comes to the dentist, I just freak thinking about the pain. Oh our Layla had a great birthday and she was so happy and good. Blessings to you and yours, love, xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh my, what a precious little girl! And wow, what a delicious looking cake :)ReplyDelete
I know what you mean about dentists....I'm not a fan!
Happy weekend to you! Hugs
Stephanie , Layla's young mommy makes those ice cream cakes for b-days and they so good. Layla was enjoying lowing out the candles, that sweet girl. I have learned many of my blog friends are not in love with going to the dentist either. LOL. I just get too worked up. Thank you for the good wishes. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Big cake for such a little girl..she's a sweetie..Those sticks would blow away here today..50 MPH winds.glad there was good news at the dentist..Have a good weekend..ReplyDelete
Missy, Those ice cream cakes that Layla's mommy makes are delicious. We had some very scary winds last week. I was in fear of losing roof shingles. Missy, I honestly was so relieved when the dentist said it was lingering sensitivity. Even though that not fun, it beats drilling and filling. :) Blessings.Hope your weekend is nice too, xoxo, SusieDelete
Great info on the dental stuff. Glad your check up was not bad news and just sensitivity. Layla is so cute with her dolls. Happy Birthday to her. Sorry you are missing your sweet brother but I know he sees all that is going on with you and your family. That cake looks so yummy. Happy Friday.
Have a great weekend.
Kris, I just have a real fear of dental work. It's me, not the dentist. Both dentists are gentle and kind. Our little Layla being three makes me know I am not getting enough time with her. My brother Mark would have teased and tormented Layla...he loved kids and always would tease them about anything. But loved making kids laugh. I remember my brother with love. I remember when he was a skinny kid with a butch haircut. :) Blessings for a fun filled weekend. xoxo, SusieDelete
Well as I write this wind is blowing the rain at about 50 mph. Mmmm ice cream cake! Very cute little girl!ReplyDelete
Kepp taking those pictures!
Boston Boy, I think you better tie down anything you do not want to lose to the winds. MY gosh the weather report is scary for the west coast and the east coast. Spring is less than 3 weeks away. Hang in there. Be safe. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
It's like the wind never stops blowing here. A belated happy birthday wish for sweet Layla. I bet she loved that cake. I'm glad you got the good info from your dentist.ReplyDelete
And I hope you are doing all right. I have missed you the past couple of days.Delete
Dr. Aslin....dreamy. Reminds me of Kevin Bacon. If you ever have to go again, take me with you for moral support (snicker snicker) He's the one that did my root canal.ReplyDelete
Layla is beautiful! Great looking cake and a cute doll. Glad you got thru the dental appt. You always share the prettiest sky photos. xoReplyDelete
