Double trouble!  Patrick is 3 and still not talking, he is very smart, just no language at all.  :(  Owen who is Patricks Nephew (Yep that is correct) is 4 and jabbers like a jay bird.  Owen is staying with his Nana and Poppy for awhile until his Mom can get her life back on track.  He just worms his way right into yur heart and wiggles around until there is room for him in there too.  It is so hard to believe he was so tiny when he was born.  Patrick gets along very well with him, and they both are very well behaved around me.  I think they are driving Momma/Nana nuts though.

 Tim had a rare day off, so we went up to see him and Patrick and Misite on Christmas day.  It was a really good visit, and Patrick gave me a big smooch!  I love being a grammy!

 I planted this camellia bush 22 years ago when I bought the house.  I left it alone and it just would not grow.  It would stay green and looked very healthy, but no buds or blooms for all that time.  This year, I looked out the window and VOILA!  tons of blooms on the Camellia Bush!  I danced a jig in the back yard, and I am sure the neighbors think I am a bit off.  I do not care,  MY CAMELIA BLOOMED!!!!
Addie is almost 1 year old now.  She will be on March 15, and This year has flown by!  She was just a cute fuzzy little puppy when I brought her home.  now she is a full grown Australian Sheppard, with long hair and tons of energy! 

One of my very first blogger friends commented on the last post, and it just about blew me away!  I have not heard from here in years, and thought the worst had happened, but it hadnt!  Hopefully she will stay in touch.  I am not sure she wants everyone to know, so I will keep her secret until she says I can blab.  I was just about ready to hop in the car and drive out to see her.  Just knock on her door and yell SURPRISE!

I'm always glad when you post, Mary Lou. Patrick is so cute; I wouldn't worry too much about his not talking, it just takes longer for some kids and like you say, he is very intelligent. That little Owen is cute also. I hope his mom can get her life back together.

Did you get the shot in January, and did it help. I hope so.

I think I read somewhere that Einstien was a very late talker. If the person is who I think it is please give them my love too! There are so many who have disappeared. I've been trying to find Michelle in South Africa on Facebook. You wouldn't believe how many people have the same name!

It's great to read how you're getting along
