Great News to all QMBers. SinCityPat has just announced that sweet Gotrocks and our dear Charles will be welcoming us back to Wichita Falls next May, 2009 for the QMB II Reunion.
I am so excited, especially for those who wanted to come last year and couldn't, and always for everyone to get to spend time with Queen Gotrocks.
This years event will strictly be a reunion, no birthdays, etc. Just time for all of us to be together, laugh, have fun, visit, all the things we just never have enough time to do.
I know Pat will arrange another fantastic event for us. This past one was the best event I have ever attended, truly. There was such a special feeling in that hotel - I can't wait to experience it all over again.
For more information, go to the QMB Forums, under Posted Calendar Events, talk about them here. Her thread is SAVE THE DATE - QMB REUNION II.
I can't wait and hope to see you all there next May.

I talked to Jet,and she was getting calls like crazy. She had also talked to Tootles and they were all ok too. Great news on those two sisters. Now we can hope for more good news.

I am soooo excited - another fun gathering to anticipate!
For a while now, Tex and I have been talking and grumbling about all the fun Jet and the Tennessee Tea Trampers have. We finally decided WE wanted to have that much fun with special Sisters, just like they do.
So, taaadaaaaa, the Texas Tea Trampers will have their first official gathering on Valentine's Day (how appropriate, getting together with sisters we already love from the QMB) at the Chocolate Angel Tea Room. Now, what better place to begin this voyage into sweet sisterhood and pure indulgent fun, than in a tea room named The Chocolate Angel!
So let the good times roll, and the laughs, chocolate, and wonderful friendships and memories to come.
Hugs to all,
Sparkling Rose, Sparky

Wow, after all of the goings on, it is like having jet lag!
We FINALLY got to Austin to see our son, DDIL, and grandsons - on Saturday. Talk about keeping Christmas going. We had our gift exchange Sunday morning, before church. Papaw and Mimi hit the top spot with our choices this year. Both boys declared our gifts as their favorites and then proved it by playing with only what we gave them for the whole time we were there. We got the oldest a game disc for his new Nintendo DS and he declared it "his coolest one". Since Sam, the youngest, hadn't gotten anything like the Nintendo, we decided to get him the Leapster version and a "Cars" disc. We thought that if Michael had his to play with while riding in the car, Sam needed something similar to play with also. What we didn't know is that one of the neighbor hood kids had gotten one from Santa, and Sam had just loved it.
So, when he opened his gifts he was elated that Mimi and Papaw had gotten him just what he wanted but hadn't asked Santa for...yeah! Success in the gift department for both.
We had a wonderful but tiring time. I miss those hugs and kisses, rubbing those little backs and just watching them, but I am also glad to be off the air mattress and back in my own bed, lol. This cold front was coming in, and my old bones were griping big time.
When we made one stop to stretch and take care of other needs, I found my first little Webkinz, and now I am hooked. I promised to keep it under control, at least until I get Christmas and taxes paid, but they are awfully cute. I got a white terrier puppy this time so my next one has to be a frog - Michael collects stuffed dogs, Sam loves frogs.
Yesterday, our oldest son came for dinner and we had our black-eyed peas. He isn't crazy about them usually, and will just eat the one bite I insist on for tradition. However, last night, he said they were really good and ate a fairly large amount. Shock almost knocked me out of my chair!
I hope all of you had a great holiday and as much fun as I did. Now, I think I am going to take a nap. All of the fun has worn me out, lol.
Hugs to all,
