    Classy Chick JbyJill says:

    Debbi thanks for asking aabout the house. We have a sales agreement with a couple. They are getting a V-A loan….which I understand is a million hoops to jump through. The V-A didn’t agree with some of the Sales Agreement and said we didn’t to change it some. Our attorney advised us to not sign or change anything at this time. It is really frustrating because the couple really want the house….their and attorney agrees with our attorney!! I’m not sure how it is all going to shake out. The frustrating part is we took down the sales sign (as part of our agreement) and we are loosing prime time to try and market the house! Oh what to do??????

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Debbi, I can’t wait to see a photo of your entire (newly expanded!) family!!! :D

    Say, Hobby Lobby has a great collection of frames and often has them on sale for 50% off……just a thought…..

    Debbi, CONGRAGULATIONS on your new grandson Max, he is sooo adorable, what a gorgeous Pick for him, love the beautiful blues, greens and browns, the pics are wonderful, thanks much for sharing!!! 8)

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Debbi, I forgot to ask if Max resembles your son or his wife or a combo of both! Also, I am sooooo impressed with all of Max’s dark hair! Our daughter Suzanne (now 31) had peach fuzz and then very light hair for the first year plus. The good news is that she now has long, thick hair — she actually has to get it “thinned” when they trim it!!! 8O

  24. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    We used to joke that we should have paid the doctor more money and got the “deluxe baby model” — the one that came with hair and was already potty-trained!!! ROTFLOL

  25. Debbi aka Sparkle Chick
    Debbi aka Sparkle Chick says:

    Thank you Sandra & Joyce for your kind comments on sweet baby Max and the fresh pic!

    Jill, I agree…what to do? I believe you have been in the new house for a while and that this sale is ever so important to you & Chris. I hope & pray that it moves through quickly, efficiently and that in the end, everyone is happy.

    Lynn, I think Max looks like both son & daughter-in-law so far. My son thinks Max’s eyes are Asian but I see a combo of both of them. Max definitely has Alicia’s mouth and Robert’s nose. He has a lot of hair, which our son did at birth.

    Our son made a stunning video of Max’s first week….brings us to tears every time we see it…it’s just so lovely, set to music. A treasure! It’s actually online at a site called vimeo.com

    Wouldn’t that have been handy to have a birth…a potty trained baby! :) I was a peachfuzz baby like your Suzanne! And now my hair is SO thick too!

    While we don’t have a Hobby Lobby here, we do have a Michael’s and AC Moore which always have the frames on sale. Would love to do a large frame collage on my empty kitchen wall!

    I don’t know how I missed this wonderful pick, and even more wonderful news, back in July, but in the spirit of “Better-late-than-never”, Congratulations on your beautiful baby grandson! He’s totally adorable! Thanks so much for sharing his pics with all of us.
    I have determined that the reason we are called “Grandparents” is because it’s truly “GRAND” to be one! :D :D :D

  33. Debbi aka Sparkle Chick
    Debbi aka Sparkle Chick says:

    Deb, thank you so much! I like that! The reason we are called Grandparents is because it’s so GRAND! Oh,it truly is!
    My son just sent us new pictures a few minutes ago and I they are incredible!
    Oh, how I wish we were closer so I could give our little guy grandma kisses!

    Debbi, what a fantastic picture of Max!!! He is just the cutest baby! Thanks for sharing him with us! :D I know he’ll enjoy his first Christmas! :D

  38. Debbi aka Sparkle Chick
    Debbi aka Sparkle Chick says:

    Thanks Lynn, we think he’s the cutest baby ever, but I do think we are a bit biased!
    I crocheted that little Santa hat for him. It was so much fun (and easy) to do.

  39. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    His little Santa hat is too cute! Will you be together on Christmas? :)

  40. Debbi aka Sparkle Chick
    Debbi aka Sparkle Chick says:

    No, not this year. We’ll do a Skype call though (or Facetime).
    I am going out for a week in January. I can’t wait! We saw Max in person in late October; he was 4 1/2 months old then. He’ll be 7 1/2 months when I see him late in late January.
    How about you? Get to be with Suzann, Dave & the grandgirls for Christmas?
    I hope so!

  41. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Yes, we’re going down to Bloomington (about 2 hrs south of us) tomorrow and staying through Sat. night. We just can’t wait! Jenna is now 5, Kaitlyn just turned 3, and Aubrey is 21 mos. — such fun ages, but then, aren’t they all?!?!?! :D

    So glad you are going to see Max soon, Debbi — you’ll have a wonderful time with him!!! :D

  42. Debbi aka Sparkle Chick
    Debbi aka Sparkle Chick says:

    That’s wonderful that you are going to be with the girls for Christmas! I bet Jenna & Kaitlyn are at such wonderful ages for Santa! I imagine Aubrey will have a blast too! Have fun and enjoy every minute!
    Have a safe trip!
