HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO SWEET LITTLE MAGGIE!
Maggie's birthday brings to mind a customer that I have had for many years that has a DS child. I have watched that beautiful little girl grow into a wonderful teenager. I don't know if she remembers me from year to year, but she seems to. She sits with me as her mother looks at and chooses a costume for her to try on. She confides in me her innermost thoughts and feelings. Her honesty and joy just overwhelms me. She has brought a new understanding to me of DS children and I find myself looking forward to seeing her every Halloween and listening to what the past year has brought to her.

Costume Lady said...

NILLA...Jasmin just gets cuter and cuter. So glad you are able to have her in your life. What a special little girl she is.

movin said...

A VERY GOOD SATURDAY MORNING TO YOU ALL.

Looks like a day for smiles.

MITS said...

thanks, Wanda good to know, we are still in the learning process...but little Maggie has taught us a lot....yes, Nilla, Molly will be 1 year old on October 1st....funny she watched Maggie crawl and is crawling just like her....but she is much stronger than Maggie was at this age...

Costume Lady said...

A Good Morning to you too, Jim. Yes we do smile a lot when we are together on here!

paula eagleholic said...

Have a nice afternoon, Mits. Birthday parties are always fun!

MITS said...

I will pass it along to her, Paula:)

Mema Jo said...

GOod Morning - Great weather we're having. I am going for Burgers on the grill this evening for granddaughter's b-day party! Don't tell anyone that I have a 30 yr old granddaughter! I love her!

The pictures you share, Mits, of Maggie and Molly are 2 beautiful little girls! I'll be looking forward to Maggie's b-day pics! I hope they let her stick her finger in the cake! ((hugs))

MITS said...

I hope so too, Jo, Maggie is not into sweets, but Molly is:)

MITS said...

Happy Birthday to Maggie and Jo's "old" granddaughter!!
Heading out to finally start painting deck rails!! Hope no showers pop up. Suppose Mei will do something while I'm too busy to watch!! Good day to all.

Mema Jo said...

Wow there were some late nighters and some early monrningers on the other blog.
T-Bird - you've been getting all the eagle fixes. Love how you did Buddy's pic on the avatar.
Paula - love the juvie pic on your avatar. I forgot to mention that the other day.

Off to get some brunch!

Costume Lady said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO JO'S GRANDAUGHTER. Jo, you have birthdays quite often in your family. How wonderful to have such a big and wonderful family.

carolinabeachmom said...

Finally got computer to get back on line, and I am seeing about everyone's children and grandchildren coming for picnics and having birthdays. How wonderful.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MAGGIE AND TO JO'S "OLDER" GRANDCHILD. Hey Jo, I only have one son, just getting married. I'll probably be deceased before I have my first grandchild.
:)

So you all keep coming with all the reports of your grand children and pics for all of us to enjoy.

MITS said...

if he is anything like my "only son", Candy he will have them soon, I'm surprised mine aren't pregnant again.

carolinabeachmom said...

LYNN I wish I could get inspired to paint our porch rocking chairs, and my hubby needs to reseal our steps. Can't seem to get our motors going tho.

carolinabeachmom said...

Turned on the Olympics this am and our ladies vollyball team is playing Japan. It was one set each when I left.

Did I see on here earlier where the Redskins have a football game on here today? Where has the summer gone?

MITS said...

redskins and buffalo tonight...son has tickets, don't know if he and f-i-l will go after bd party...ravens played new england the other night, won, but not looking for a good year...jmho

carolinabeachmom said...

Helen, I guess one can always home. Father time keeps ticking on. You just have a wonderful time at Maggie's birthday party today and give us some running details so we can all share in it with you. :)

MITS said...

will do, Candy

carolinabeachmom said...

Oh well, you have to go with the ups and downs. I am anxious for the Carolina Tar Heals to start their football games also, and we are usually hit or miss. I still get up for each game tho.

The Revens might just surprise you all. Time will tell. Hang in there.

Oh before I forget, I have to yell "Go Eeeeeeeeerrrssss" for Norma, even tho she hasn't been seen lately. I root for them until and if they play the Tar Heals. :)

carolinabeachmom said...

See, I called them the Revens because they are revving up to hae a super year MITS! :)

MITS said...

Norma has been away so long, probably does not remember how to turn puter on:)

carolinabeachmom said...

I've noticed that she hasn't been on for awhile. She had company, so maybe she went back with them for a few. I hope she is ok She is sooooo sweet.

MITS said...

still think it will be a putt-putt year.....am anxious to see the NFL's new rules about drunk and obnoxious people in the stands...if they throw them out the stadiums will be MT, which is fine with me....especially the opposing teams visitors who are always looking for a fight, and that goes for the Raven fans who visit stadiums too. These people take away from the fun of the game

MITS said...

off to get out of the PJ CLUB:) BBL.

carolinabeachmom said...

Alcohol has a way for spoiling life in general if overdone. Maybe they shouldn't be able to sell it at the games or bring it in themselves. You are right, there will always be someone who is just had enough in him and be ready to start things getting nasty.

carolinabeachmom said...

Checking my email.

MITS said...

MEI, is honking:)

Mema Jo said...

Watching the little lonely Hobby chick in the nest as the winds roar all around him. Nest looks pretty secure. He is starting to get his darker feathers. He is just rockin' and rollin' with the weather!

There is also a chick in the Finny 2008 nest.. I think it is a chick - it is resting and I can't see the feathers too well. It is early evening there.

Mema Jo said...

She is flat out and down!
I couldn't get any pic on Cam 2. I'm
Just viewing Cam 1 - Mei's cam....

MITS said...

ya know, that chick always seems to be in the nest...wondering if it has some sort of problem??

Mema Jo said...

I need to do some things before we leave around 3:30.
Will pop in before then ...
I have Mei's cam up & running but my hopes aren't very high for getting a
new cub! :(

MITS said...

cam 2 looks like Tian, at least that is his den

MITS said...

he is right by the cam room, they had to put blinds there, otherwise he was always bugging the cam people

MITS said...

ok he went outside again

MITS said...

yes Jo, today I am in a not optimistic mood, but have not received any urine repots since the 6th....

Lolly said...

Hi all! Been a long time since I have been on. Had a great time at the beach! The weather was perfect and no one got a sunburn. We had a great house, new and luxurious! We had a golf cart to go to the beach, no lugging buckets etc! We built beautiful sand castles. I have decided that happiness is building sand castles with your own grown children and grandchildren. More fun!

Going back to the beach in Sept., but this time taking our trailer and meeting my sister and her hubby in their RV. Never can get enough of beach walking!

School starts in two weeks. So, I have a lot of babysitting in the next couple of weeks. Laurel, our daughter will be getting her classroom ready and has in-service. Week after next we are having "Camp Grandmommy & Grandaddy". We are planning great activities!

Still no baby panda or new info?

Hope all are well....busy time here!

NatureNut said...

Good Eagle PM to Everyone. See everybody's busy or Blogger is eating Comments!!
Haven't been on--had to stay home from work Fri. w/bum tooth. Of course my dentist was on vacation!!!Referral # had no dentists at work & girls said "go to hosp"!!!!In late PM was able to see our periodontist (gum) dentist.He took x-ray--said it has to come out. :>(( Got antibiotics and painkiller Naproxen. I'm afraid to take it--can make your stomach bleed says warnings! So next week when reg. dentist is back, I'm supposed to go and lose Mr. Wiggley! Boo Hoo! Enough of that!
Happy B'Day to the little & big Granddaughters!!!!

NatureNut said...

HELLO, Lolly!!! Good to hear from you! Guess you weathered tropical storm! We were talking about you & wondering if you had to leave!
Sounds like a great trip & you get to go back!!!!!

BBL

magpie said...

Good Afternoon and Day to Everyone:
I was up very late (4 o'clock) so just slept in 'cause I have to work midnight tonight....I have to fess up: It was not I, but Megan that saw the early morning Eagles with the other gals...I think when T-Bird signs on, the Eagles must know it, because soon after, Voila! We have visitors....
- - -

Happy Day to the Birthday Girls today, and all their families!

xo xo

magpie said...

Love the new avatars that keep showing up: Big Buddy, and Candy's eagles....and the others...
such fun !

I have been watching Finney's Nest a lot, and cannot tell if it is the same chick or the two are taking turns, but they sure are in that nest a lot! Tribute to the lost one, maybe...I saw a bird perched in a tree nearby the nest early (early our time) this morning, while the chick was still in the nest, wasn't sure what it was, maybe, a parent or the other chick, that's what I'm hoping...

xoxox

magpie said...

Mmmmmmmm Grilled chow - pork chops, burgers....sure makes my tomato sandwiches seem a little uninspired....though in the summer I can live on tomato sandwiches with great pleasure...

Good Day to All, time to get ready for afternoon church, then nap time...Catch ya' all later on...

xoxox

magpie said...

Lolly: We are happy that your vacation was not spoiled by bad weather....good to "see" you again...we were worried about it...

paula eagleholic said...

Magpie - I loooooove tomato sandwiches too...on homemade bread w/ mayo and salt and pepper.

Mema Jo said...

Well we are ready to take off out of here. Hedgie I didn't want you to know that I was coming to Hedgesville for the b-day party!!
I was afraid you would ask me to stop by and help paint with you! lol
Next time when it is just for a visit I promise I'll stop. I will give you a Hoop & a Holler as I pass

Lolly said...

You all are too kind to be worried about us at the beach. Galveston just ended up with rain and no surge!

We did just fine...thanks for thinking of us!

paula eagleholic said...

Taking a quick break before the troops arrive...

Osprey at CT

How ya doing Nilla?

Happy Birthday to Jo's Granddaughter too!

Nature - hope the tooth gets better.

Hedgie- are ya done yet? :)

paula eagleholic said...

CT - big hunk of marsh grass in the nest now...

Hedgie said...

Yes, Paula...done for today!! Got the biggest part done (8 posts and about 40 feet of double rails!). Still have the balcony to do and the "small" deck (maybe 10 feet) plus railings on staircase. Argh...I'm beat! Hands cramping.
Hey, Jo, I wouldn't have made you work!!! Hope everyone is enjoying their parties.
Nilla, Margy goes to the beautiful (new) Catholic Church out on 9 East. Is it St. James? I think...
I see Mei is still keeping us waiting!

Hedgie said...

Game time! GO SKINS!!!!!!!!!

sunny said...

Hey Gang! Guess who I saw today?

sunny said...

So anyway, we're kayaking on the Potomac, just below NCTC, and this very large bird, dark brown with a white head and white tail, flies out of the trees right in front of us. It wasn't 10 feet over the water. Can I just say "AWESOME"?

carolinabeachmom said...

Wow SUNNY, you are one lucky duck. It must have been awsome.

carolinabeachmom said...

Hey LOLLY So good to see you back and in one piece. Everyone was concerned for your welfare with that storm coming your way. Glad to see you had a great time.

carolinabeachmom said...

Now I have to decide....Redskins game or the Olympics. Which, which, BBL

magpie said...

Hi Nilla - Hedgie has it right, Saint James Catholic on Rt 9E - very beautiful church, lots of wonderful people...Our priest, Father Brian, is the son of a Baptist Minister from North Carolina, he not only converted to Catholicism, he became a priest! It makes for some funny sermons...

- - -
New wildflower out up here: New York Ironweed ! Tall, and deep dark purple flowers - it's a beauty, but you know what it means....fall is approaching..

Good Night all, Panda nap time for me then off to the salt mines at midnight.

xoxo

NillaWafer said...

Well im back from playing canasta and other games that makes me say bad things to the computor..lol Mie is laying on her back in the corner with her arm over her eyes.. I dont know where that church is sorry...Yup fall is coming i have crickets in the house and here at work.. I wont kill them good luck ya know...But sweep them out the door with abroom..lol Thought i should let ya know im a die hard Redskin fan since 1962 .. Paula is too and few others... Watching mens gymnastics too...

NillaWafer said...

Team USA is hot hot hot tonight!!!!

NillaWafer said...

Man did ya see that 217 Alexander Artimoff (SP) just amazing!!!! the extentsion of his body and he just whizzzzzzed so fast

Hedgie said...

Halftime....Nilla, how did you do the split avatar? Nice!
I've got ya' beat, kiddo...I was born a Skins fan!! My dad was a bigtime fan...he and mom were at that horrible game in the early 40's where I think the Bears clobbered us 60-something to 0!!
St. James is on the east side of CharlesTown...between the bypass and the river. You must drive out there, Nilla...it's amazing. They must be so proud of it.
Missed saying g'night to Margy! Hope you have a quiet shift.

Hedgie said...

Sunny, so glad you got to see one of our adults!!! That made for a perfect day, didn't it?

MITS said...

just stopping by to say,GOODNIGHT EVERYONE, Had a great time at the BD party, and Maggie had a good time too., didn't want any cake, but did share with everyone, by flinging it in your direction...thought I would see a cub when I got home, but no :(

MITS said...

SUNNY, what luck:)

Mema Jo said...

Blogger cop would not allow me entry!

I have returned from Wild & Wonderful West Virginia
Enjoyed the b-day cook out and cake!

I hollered at Rustic Tavern Rd around 7:30 - did you hear me Lynn.

Hedgie said...

Yea, Skins!

Hedgie said...

Jo, I thought I heard something!!!!LOL. Glad you had a good time!

Mema Jo said...

Great day for you SUNNY!

Just got to see Michael Phelps win his first gold! Missed the gymnastics!

Everyone gone....house has finally quieted down. Had a great evening!

Sunny - did you go w/ the Potomac River paddlers? How awesome that you got to see Libe or Belle!

paula eagleholic said...

Kewl, So Skins Won! Didn't get to watch it...

sunny said...

Paula, no we didn't go with the group. I joined their Yahoo group, but I don't think we could keep up with them on a paddle. They're a lot more hard-core than we are!

sunny said...

I wish I'd had my camera out, but I couldn't take my eyes off him/her, just too cool!

T-Bird said...

good night Mema Jo-don't let the bed bugs bite-see ya in the morning light!

T-Bird said...

magpie-hope all went well with the grandson. Good night fine friends.

paula eagleholic said...

Sunny - I think they do 5 miles up and 5 back from that last email I got...I joined the group too. Would love to go kayaking...but should take a lesson first! Been a long time!

magpie said...

Michael Phelps grew up in Frostburg....go Marylanders!

Sounds like it was a great Birthday Day for Mema and Mits and families...enjoyed all the tales...

Sunny - you rule today! Being that close to one of our Eagle Family

G'night everyone, sorry I missed you T-Bird...Hedgie...and most everyone else.

movin said...

GOOD NIGHT, EVERYONE!!


C(°?°)3

Jim

Hedgie said...

Y-a-w-n....fell asleep on sofa whilst (I bet that's a Chrissy word!) catching the news. Sorry I didn't say goodnight! Thelma...still have not seen FedEx field...and there's talk about another new stadium! Would love to catch a game with you.
Glad everyone had such a great Sat. What does Sunday hold in store?? Maybe a butter stick?? Later, gators!

T-Bird said...

hedgie-love to have a butta stick, she is craddling right now as she falls over head first :) to go back to sleep in her bamboo

T-Bird said...

no eagles have there been to my eyes this morning- :) No one ever said I was a poet. Heck, no one ever said I could even spell and my mom was a teacher-bless her soul. Hope everyone's Sunday is made good.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good Sunday morning everyone! Watching Mei. She is still having those behaviors. We want a baby, Mei!!!!!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I guess everyone is still in bed??

Mei Xiang has 2 balls in the birthing den with her. Now she is going out into the open den. She went there a minute ago and made a poopy. Now she is sitting there with a pieece of bamboo and just broke it in two.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

They just stuck a piece of bamboo through the window of her door, she pulled it the rest of the way in and dragged it into the birthing den. That is all she needs, more bamboo in there.

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING SHARON...AND EVERYONE

What, no baby panda?? I was so hoping to have a new addition to the zoo.
It was good to hear from Sunny last evening and soooo glad she got to see one of our beauties. That must have been spectacular!

Costume Lady said...

The Blogger Cop is awake this morning!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning, all you beautiful people. Did you know that today is officially lazy day?

MITS said...

GOOE SUNDAY MORNING EVERYONE

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

It said in the paper today to don't even THINK about cleaning house today. So, I am going to follow that idea, sounds like a good one. Veg and do absolutely nothing, sounds so good!! My poor husband is at Downard Hydraulics slaving away, bless his heart. So, I will be lazy enough for both of us.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I dreamed last night we had a baby panda this morning!

MITS said...

looks like Mei has replenished the bamboo in her birthing den, they had cleaned it out yesterday....not hearing a peep from the zoo, which is kinda unusual.

Mema Jo said...

Good Sunday Morning to everyone out there is EagleLand.I am off to Mass Talk with you later

MITS said...

FINNEYS' nest is MT

New Thread is up!
