Weekend Update

What a perfect weekend!

The peonies are starting to bloom! Peonies were my Mom's favorite and they are mine too. I only wish they lasted longer! I was able to cut a couple from my yard with many more blooms just waiting to open a bit more! Love their beautiful look and wonderful scent!

Miss Maddy and I spent some time on the weekend taking Miss Muffy for walks! She (Muffy, I mean) is scheduled for her summer short haircut later this week!

Maddy and I also spent some time Saturday getting pedicures and shopping . . . shopping for baby boy blue!

Yes, Philip and Catherine had their baby on Thursday evening very late. He weighed in at 8 lb., 13 oz. and looks so much like Philip did when he was a baby. They named him Walter Eugene and will be calling him Walt. We met the little bundle of joy yesterday. He is so precious! We are so thankful that little Walt, his Mom Catherine, Dad Philip, big sister Janie (and Monty, the dog) are all doing so great.

I absolutely LOVE the babies name. It is very stately! So glad all is well with mom and baby.

Can't wait to see Miss Muffy's new cut. Master Kingsley also got his new cut in time fore the cottage.

Have a good week my friend.


PS. I love peonies also! I have one bush out the front. But your are right they don't last long but I guess that's what make them special.

Congratulations on little Walt. What a sweetie. Your weekend was definitely an exciting and special one. Our peonies are still a few weeks out. Our plants came with us to this house from my former grandparents yard. I have special memories of them too.

Be sure to take lots of pictures of Miss Muffy's summer make-over.

Your little boy blue is so precious and I have to say that although you don't look old enough to be a grandma, you certainly are glowing and I can tell you are enjoying evey moment!

I can't believe how much Maddy is growing and changing..... she is beautiful Janet.

As for Miss Muffy....I hope she loves her new do. We just got Rudy shaved for the summer and he is as happy as a clam:)
