Welcome to the Petal Pushers!
This will be a monthly swap. Everyone is invited to join. I'm not adding alot of rules and regulations to this group, I want this to be a fun swap that people will want to join in and enjoy themselves. If you sign up in any given swap , you're considered a member. Now with that said, I'm not putting a number on how many swaps you have to be in, its your choice. Life happens and we can't always be involved. Alot of us girls have been around a good while and know each other but we welcome new people. I do ask that you understand, if you're new and your swap partner for that particular month does not know you, you are REQUIRED to send your box first. And we all know that we need to post when received. Very important, your partner is patiently waiting to hear from you. You should use delivery confirmation when sending, it could save your bedonkadonk! (Anyone that doesn't know what that means, email me, I'll be happy to explain! lol) I will ask for the ones that want to be more involved to host a month, just let me know what month you'd prefer. That will take alittle of the load off of me and make it lots more fun having different ideas than my little brain can come up with. When you sign up I will send out a small questionaire, not to worry, I don't need your great grand-mothers maiden name! lol (JK) Just a little info about your likes/dislikes to help your swap partners. I figured alot of you girls are already committed to Sept swaps so lets start this off in October! If I think of anything else I'll add it later, but I'm just trying to keep it simple for all of us. Hope it sounds good to you girls.
If anyone has any other ideas please email me, always open to suggestions.

Ok, for now, this is our October Halloween Spooky swap! I'll be hosting and please if you want to send plants try send something with a halloween themed name. One year I received a daylily named 'Witches Brew' and loved it! Other than that send what you want, but if you're sending decorations, etc, we want our partner to receive in time to display for the big night. You can alway just use a fall theme, but hate to pass on a holiday! Thought we may use the fall theme for Thanksgiving, but that up to whom ever wants to host, and if no one else can, I will, no problem.

Ok, lets get this party started!

RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Sassy I would love to continue to be part of the group, butttttt, since we have very few little ones that come around for holloween I don't decorate for it any longer. I think living in a small small town people take their children to the bigger cities for more goodies. So with that in mind I will pass for the holloween swap if that is acceptable.

LIFE IS GOOD,
Annie

Thanks Jeanne. I'll try really hard not to drive ya'll nuts with baby pics but it won't be easy. lol

Welcome to you and Anita. Glad to have you both and not to worry about passing for this month just stop in and chat when you have a chance.

RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Sassy-McKenzie is such a babe.

So, I get a surprise gift for signing up first.....Love surprises.

My DD is laid up with a broken foot. Did anyone's mother ever tell you to wear clean underwear just in case you got sick and had to go to the hospital????? When my DD fell she crawled to the phone and called me when she couldn't get a hold of her DH. I called an ambulance....... My DD was none to happy about that because she lives on the 2nd floor and her door was locked also she was wearing a ripped up tee shirt and no bra... Need I say more?

Were are the rest of this group?

I am going to take a pass on the October Swap-but don't count me out! I will be back! I have committed to hosting the Make New Friends Halloween Swap and having never hosted a swap before, I want to give that one my full attention.


 o
RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Hello Sassy and everyone!
One of the reasons I joined GW was to swap seeds. It covers two of my four hobbies: Gardening and mailing. I've just got this thing for the snail mail.
I would love to be a part of this. It'll be nice to swap for something other than seeds.
I really am looking forward to getting to know this wonderful big group!
Count me in!

Ahhh, dear Sassy, thank you for the warm welcome! Something is wrong when life gets too busy for your online friends. Does Kenzie ever NOT smile????? And Tracy, what a beautiful little blondie! She could have been mine! I wonder what she was saying when this pic was taken, eh? Is she your little helper in the flower garden? Is that an orange coneflower I spy?

Weather here has been strange. Have had 2 frosts-last week-end and was walking around in jeans and 2 sweatshirts. Now the temps are back in the 80's again and back to shorts, etc. Temps inside the school building are hot, hot, hot! With all of those darling little sweaty bodies. But they are just all as precious as can be. Gosh, I do love working with this age now. After 28 years with middle schoolers who'd a thunk it!

BTW, Tracy, great pics of the carrots. I've grown those kind before, and they are a HOOT!!!

Better sign out pretty soon as there is lightning and thunder going on in the distance. MORE rain. Sigh. Mary Ellen


 o
RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Thank you! I love my little Emma! Mellen, she probably does look more like anyone other than her daddy and I! We are both have dark hair and eyes! Don't know how we ended up with 4 blondies and only 1 brunette out of our bunch!

Emma was saying "I watie De flowies!" She always does because she is so excited to help! And yes Ma'am that would be my Autumn Sunset Echinacea that you spy with your little eye! I had 2 but traded one for a Multi Blue Clematis that I was drooling over. I recently picked up a sunrise one as well. I saved a few seeds from the sunset so far and am hoping for a few more before the season is done. I pinched the carrots off of photobucket, they cracked me up, so I had to throw them at my bunny friend! LOL!

Oh, yicky, you are stuck in a classroom with stinky preteens after gym class! I bow before you, you are superwoman! I have a friend who teaches 5th graders. Her first year back to teaching was eye watering with all of those boys on hot summer days. She finally sent home a letter requesting that the parents introduce the children to deodorant.


 o
RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

OK, since I am new to this, can you tell me exactly how it works?
What is the deadline- is this deadline when things have to be in the mail by or when the item is recieved by?

Do I give you my name and address and then you give me the name and address of whomever I'm sending to?

Do we have the same person every time?

Is this a package of gifts (preferred) or just one item?

RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Thanks Deb, my daughter isn't healing well she may have to have surgery on the foot. After she recovered from the embarrassment of her attire she was glad I called an ambulance.

Over Labor Day week-end we visited with my sister and her hubby at their dairy farm. Here are a few pics I took.

RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Mellen, lol, not much, we're very lucky as Kenzie is an all around happy, peaceful baby. This definitely has been a weird year, weather wise......

Monica, I will assign partners and try to have it posted on the 1st of Oct. I hate to put deadlines, life gets busy, but would be nice if everyone has their box by the last week of Oct. for sure. We don't want this running into our next month. I will be sending out a questionaire I'm working on, I want everyone to fill it out and send it back to me, but keep a copy for yourself, its up to you to send to your partner for a particular month. You can also check out they're want lists on their gw page. No you will not have the same person each time. It will be a package of gifts, not that you need to go spend alot of money. When we can we also send plants, but we're coming up on that time now that not all can send or receive plants.

Glad you're still in Nancy, not counting you in for Oct. I completely understand girl.

Mariann, me too! Deb, I almost have a panick attack if the doorbell rings and not got my bra on! lol Lets just say they stand there till I have it on before that door gets opened. lol Mariann, Sure hope she doesn't have to have surgery. Sure are some cute calves! I love babies of any kind!

Carol congrats on your niece's job on broadway! I know she'll love that!

Thanks Moonphase! You're welcome to join when you can, no worries!

I'll try to get this questionaire out shortly, just gotta get all you girls emails lined up.

Have a good nite!

My DD spent a few days with us. Still using crutches. She is getting Xrayed this evening. Her DH is bringing her over tomorrow morning and she'll be staying until Monday. We are taking her to the Dr's to see how she is doing.

Weather has been great here and the leaves are starting to fall from the Silver Maple.

Have a great week end everyone.......

RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Mariann..there's nothing like it in the world! Hoping its soon for you if thats what you and they want! I just can't describe it! Hoping your daughter gets good reports from the tests. Jerry was flying to the other house one weekend and had weather come in sooner than the weather center told him and he had to make an emergency landing right at dark, he managed to walk away, but with 2 broken ankles, literally, he walked 2 miles trying to find a place for emergency personel to reach him, which I believe is what finished fracturing his ankles. (He landed on a dirt road of a deer range.) Anyway...... Wishing her the best:) Thanks God for cell phones! Yes, normally he never has service in that area of going to the house. Wow, makes you appreciate the wonders of life:)

Nutbunny, I bet if I shaved you lol, you wouldn't be as big as my foot! But there again I do have a big foot! lol

HeHe!!!

 o
RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Sassy, that sounds absolutely terrible! I was cringing reading all that poor Jerry went through to get help. Thank goodness he wasn't hurt worse. Don't shave the poor bunny, she would look like one of those hairless cats. Yuck!

Mariann, I am sending good wishes to your DD. I hope she recovers quickly and no surgery will be needed.

Have a great night everyone!
Tracy


 o
RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Oh honey, he was hurt worse, just didn't want to bore some of these girls with the details again. lol Good thing he's not a heavy bleeder. Bad thing was he was 3 hours away from me. Anyway, he's just fine now and has been for over 3 years. We good! lol And yes, he has another airplane! I make him promise he'll get wherever he's flying before its going to get dark and we have lots more avenues of checking weather.

Have a good night girls, gotta hit the hay! Now Tracy don't let naughty things be running though your mind, lol,
I sickly tonight.

Ohhhh Nooooo, blow your nose on a kitty????? Poor baby!!! Actually, the other picture going through my head is inhaling a bunch of cat hair then hackin' up a furball. Sick minds think alike, eh?

Just kind of passing through here. I've been out for a haircut this morning and some shopping for the swap. After I do some clothes folding from hubby washing and drying them, I'm heading out to go visit my parents. They moved to a college town about 35 miles away from us last week-end. Sold their house of 50+ years that they had built, packed up, and moved. I am LOVING it! They're still in the process of unpacking, naturally, and I have been helping as I can. My parents are 76 and 81. Don't know if I could move at that age, but it's what they wanted to do.

Still having great weather here. Have been pulling some weeds out of the flower gardens so it isn't so bad to work in next spring. I still have a ton of coop plants to get in the ground--at least I have had them growing in pots--but now DH is helping a neighbor with fall harvest along with doing his regular job. Maybe when the first snow flies he'll get the tractor and disc out and make a spot for them. :P

Have a super week-end, everyone! Mary Ellen/Mellen


 o
RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Sassy-What a nightmare story about Jerry. Gives me the chills, the poor guy.

Who's got the runny nose???? Sassy do you have the sniffles?

My DD had Xrays yesterday. The radiologist compared this one with the first one. He told her that they both look the same with no healing taking place. She was in tears when she called me. My DH and I are taking her to the Dr on Monday so we'll see what he says. Did I mention she doesn't have Health Insurance? Her DH company doesn't cover families. How unfair is that?? I'd better not get started on that subject.

RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Mariann,

I am so sorry for your DD. That is terrible! I am going to keep praying for her. Tell her doctor that you have heard about the electronic bone stimulators, this may be an option for her before a surgerical procedure becomes necessary. My mom broke her foot over a year ago and it was not healing. She had to have surgery with pins and plates, etc. After surgery no new bone growth was appearing so they ordered the stimulator. It sits on the outside of the cast and sends electronic impulses to the bone causing new growth to appear. It definitely helped and now she is finally cast free, no cane, no more crutches. It took some time but now she is better.


 o
RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Sassy,
I scrolled up and saw that I posted and got mine and sent it to you back. I REALLY don't remember doing this LOL. I guss thats what happens when you've got twin babies. Please e-mail me and let me know whats up. I've got new e-mail too, if you already didn't know.

Tracy


 o
RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

How is everyone on this beautiful October 1st?

We took our DD to the Dr.'s today even though the Radiologist said that no healing was taken place her Dr. disagreed. He said that there was a small amount of healing and that hopefully it will be only another 6-8 weeks. Tracy thank you for suggesting the electronic bone stimulator. We did ask about it and he said that since she doesn't have Health Insurance it's probably not possible to get one. He also said that it was to soon for that type of treatment. If need be he will look into it in the future.

I don't know if anyone suffers from allergies but I'm all stuffed up.

RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Mariann,

If the need comes up, I will ask my mom for hers, she is through with it and it was completely paid for through Medicaid/social security. Say the word, I know she would happily have me send it along. That is great news that the doctor sees some improvement. I am happy for her, I will continue to offer my prayers in her recovery.

RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Hi girls, thanks for the well wishes hopefully this mess will get over soon. Jerry even stayed home from work today and he never does that. He camped out on one couch and me on the other. Julie had to leave work and come get the munchkin I was so sick. I'm scared to death I'm going to get her sick. I would feel horrible if I gave this cold to her. Oh well, it'll run its course and be over lol

Mariann well wishes for DD

RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Hello all! Sorry, I forgot to post last week! Thought I had but didn't see it. I still want to be in the petal pushers but will sit out this swap! Have some to catch up on in a couple others! Been sick with kidney infections alot and seeing dr. alot. Going to see rheumatologist later who is going to see if I have Lupus or not. But please send me the questionaire again as I still want to be part of the group! Melinda


 o
RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Tracy-You are a life saver girl. I called my DD with your offer. She was so grateful. Her Dr. is going to call her back. I'll send you an email. Hope you get email through the GW.

Sassy-Take care of your self. Feel better soon.

Melinda-So sorry you've been ill. Good luck with your Dr. appointment.

Mariann

RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

I'm so sorry everyone isn't doing so well. I'm doing great physically, but mentally, not so. It's a good thing we can't catch anything through the PC.

Sassy, as far as pics of my lil ones, I'll get them up.

As far as that questionnaire- I really don't remember what I typed in, so when you get to it, could your resend?

BTW- how do you guys put pics in these postings?

Here is a link that might be useful: My page with pics of babies


 o
RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Mariann,

My mom is bringing it over tomorrow and it will be on it's way to you by Thursday at the latest!!!!

Melinda,
I am sorry to hear that you have been feeling so sick, I hope it is not lupus! I have suffered only 1 kidney infection and that was last year, very painful. You are in my prayers.

Hotshott,
I place my pics in www.photobucket.com Then after they are loaded I click on the HTML code, copy it, paste it directly into the message box here on GW. Let me know if I didn't explain it well. Good luck!

Tracy

RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Tracy thanks hun and all of you for that matter, you know how a cold is.....just got to run its course and it'll go away, I'm just trying to not let it turn in to something else. And trying so hard not to get the baby sick, its hard on a Grammy not to get sugar!!! Its terrible to say this but I'm so glad Julie is off tommorrow, I don't know if I will get out of bed.

Melinda...not to worry, you're in the group if you want to be hun, you take care and get better! Any of you that didn't get the questionaire, just email me and I'll get it to you when I can.

Tracy what a sweetie you are to do that for Mariann's dd. You're awesome girlie!

Hotshot, not going thru post-partum are you? You talk to us girl if you need to! I try to keep checking in even if I don't feel like writing a book, lol. But the other girls can give you lots of advise, alot of them are Mommy's. I saw the babies on your site, how wonderful! Nothing better than babies and we all wish they'd stay those smootchable little things! But its fun watching them grow too. I know twins must be exhausting, talk to us when you need to sweetie! Even if in email. I'll re-send you your questionaire that you answered, lol. Not to worry.....life gets busy, its happens to us all:)

Ok, down to business......I hope you girls won't hold it against me for not including myself in our 1st new swap, but I can't imagine getting out shopping right now and we really need to have whatever we're sending this month out by the 15th! I don't usually like putting deadlines, but lets face it, if you're sending decorations you want your partner to be able to enjoy them for the holiday. And I'm taking the easy way out I guess and I apologize for that but the list of players, 1st one sends to the next and so on until the last sends to the 1st. Easiest way for me right now yes, sorry.

And hubby has a horrible cold/flu thing ...he took a half day off of work today, he felt so bad..nearly fell down some stairs, he got so dizzy & winded. He must be in pretty bad shape, cuz this is only the 2nd sick day he's taken in 10 years!

Hello Carol!

Would you mind sending me an email with your address and give me some hints on your current likes and dislikes? I took a peak at your profile last night and have some good ideas but would like to know if there are any changes I should know about. Thanks so much. The emails through gw are coming through, but if you are having trouble I will post it on the forum.

So, about the DC?


 o
RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

I believe that we try to have a DC # for each package. It just makes it easier to track and figure out where something got sent in case it gets lost (and it's happened, believe it or not!!!) I've had one package that was SUPPOSED to go to MA, but it ended up in SD. Um..excuse me, but HOW did that happen?? The post office said it was misdirected. Hmm. I guess it was. :O)
So long answer to a short question. :O)
I'm good at that.


 o
RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Miss Tracy- Your box is going out in the morning. I'll have a DC# for you after I get back from the Post Office!!


 o
RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Hey girls

Whoever asked, yes, ALWAYS use delivery confirmation and post the # here when when its shipped/mailed. We need to do this to cover our butts at times:)

Well jeez, thought I was feeling a tiny bit better yesterday, woke up early this am freezing to death, took my temp and it was 102, so had to get my Mom to keep McKenzie. My God has that woman has been in pure heaven all day! lol I kept calling and checking on them, wouldn't be worried, but Mom had surgery on one knee and its hasn't healed well, and she desperately needs it on the other one but they won't do it till they get the first one fixed. Ok, I'm rambling, must be the drugs, sorry.

Glad you girls are keeping things going, thanks so much.
Back to bed for me:(

Becki "my" Love...I got your package in the mail today...you're DC # is 0306 3030 0003 4416 8247
Please let me know when you get it. I had to send it Slug Snail mail---it saved me a couple bucks that way. I've got to buy formula, diapers, wipes and baby food tomorrow...every penny counts.
I can't help but to spend the money on this though...letter/package sending is my passion (besides crafts and gardening)

RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Monica sounds lovely, take pics for us if you can. My little gbg McKenzie turned 7 months on the 21st of Sept. I haven't been able to keep her for about 5 or 6 days now and its just about to kill me! I miss her so bad:( I just can't seem to shake this cold/flu or the fever, everytime I think I feel a little better its right back (the fever) the next day. I'm just not used to feeling bad, I'll be glad when this is over. Enough of that, you enjoy your time there!

Okay so far I have these girls as shipped........

Mariann
Melissa
Tracy
Monica post dc when you can

Now the rest of you.....no need to get into a frinzy, you have 5 days left. And if it takes 6 you won't get scratched by the Sassycat, we just want everyone to be able to enjoy their halloween decorations.

I'm looking forward to seeing alittle more talk and alot more action in this thread!

Sass, it's frustrating, isn't it? I caught a flu this summer that wiped me for a whole week. I had not had anything like that since my 20's which was a "few", ahem, years ago. Anyway, it was really nasty. Have you been to the Dr., I don't remember?

Mary Ellen

RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Mellen, it sure is. Its alot harder to get over this mess when you're older, for sure. No I haven't been to a doc, but I may have to. Jerry was out of work all week and you'd have to know him.....that doesn't happen. Anyway he's better, and I thought I was too but here comes the fever again, so I don't know, I'm just tired of this. I'm used to feeling good and just a fun person, I sure don't feel fun right now. Even though I want to:)

Wow miss bunny, that does sound like a great box of goodies! Very nice!

Sassy, Darlin, I am going to yell at you a bit dear. If you have had a fever for more than 6 days then you absolutely need to go to the doctor. There is no playing around after that long. GO! That is an ORDER! I'm not playing. Besides, if you don't go, then Kenzie can't come over and play. Now, do I need to get the paddle?

OK ladies, sorry about that. I DID get the package sent out on Tuesday. I tried to post the DC at mom's but she has old school phone line and this page would just time out cause of all the pics.

Well, anyway...here is the DC... 0306 3030 0003 4416 8247

Becki, I wanna say I'm sorry ahead of time...I didn't realize we were to send so many things. I'll make it up to you though. ;)

Well, I'm currently preparing a huge sale at my parents storage units for the weekend. My mom's got the girls tonight so I can get a good nights rest...YIPPY!

I am SO exhausted. I just also made a floral arrangement with fowers made of cantelope, honeydew and watermelon for my step mother's friend in the hospital. It looks really nice. I forgot my digi cam for the trip so I'll borrow someone else's tomorrow and take a pic of it.

Thankyou Ed I love it all. Deb your box will go out first of week, gotta go to the store to buy that pumpkin poop. I worked long hrs last two days didn't let my dog out she used the cats litter box. (on a side note). hugs carol

Carol,

I am glad you got the box safe and sound. Did you get the note inside? I hope it didn't get lost in the packaging. There was a book in there too. Ed is my husband, I use his post office online account for mailing sometimes, so it was really me. The Superstition Iris is in honor of the month and in celebration of Halloween. I didn't think you were dark. Sorry if I offended you dear, no slight intended.

Oh, dear Tracy, you have to get to know Carol and her crazy humor! She is just being silly. Nothing else. Honestly! She has a wonderfully weird, cracked up sense of humor. The more you get to know her, the more you love her. She has a heart of gold. I think you took offense, but please, please don't.

Carol, I'm gonna sic your own dog on you. Bark, bark!!! You have a smart dog if she'll do her duty in the cat litter. I'm impressed.

Carol and Mellen,

HOW RUDE!!! REGARDLESS of crazy humor or being silly HOW FREAKING RUDE!!! Not only was she mean she did the major NO NO of online swaping, there was no need for you, Carol, regardless of your sense of humor, to post a thank you like that. First of all WHY IN HADES did you have to post her hubbys name (first and last) when you knew good and well who the box came from? The last name is most definately the worst thing to do anyways! I am sorry but Sassy if you condone this kind of stuff then I would be shocked. As far as a dark person, no Carol you are not a dark person, you are a not nice person and Mellen if you think this was one bit funny then you are not nice either. People just don't do that and ya know what? sic the dog on me cause records will show. Yes this is bad.

RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

Mellen, Thank you for trying to explain veeja's humor to me. I don't really see it very well.

Carol, I am sorry if you were disappointed with your box, I packed it carefully with you in mind. I shopped for a few specials for you because of your candle making interests. Along with a book of the special relationships that ladies have with their dogs. A very nice book that details ladies throughout history and their best friends. I am sorry if dark colors do not suit you. The Black Hero, Blushing Beauty and Angelique tulips that I sent along with the Moonlight Masquerade Daylily and the Superstition Iris are being shared between myself and the 3 groups that I traded with this month. The sentiment that I had was that it would be so nice to share a small part of each other in each of our gardens. I am saddened and I am offended, truly offended that you posted my husbands name on this thread. That is inexcusable to me. There is a very good reason that we use GWID's, and that is to protect our privacy. If I had wished my personal information to be online I would have posted it myself.

This has been a very negative experience for me. I am sorry to say. I had hoped to develop positive relationships with the people in this group. I will not be back.

Hello everyone, I just remembered that I forgot to post HotShott's DC#. But when I looked it up on the PO site, I see that it was delivered yesterday. With that in mind, Monica, I forgot to include a card inside the box. So the swap box with the return address from Mary Ellen is from the Petal Pushers group. Hope you are getting along okay and things in your life settle down for you soon. Take care, Mary Ellen

Mary Ellen,
I have yet to return home from NY... :( so sad that my hubby is now home from his business trip and I am still up here hard at work. Even MORE sad that I can't open the box from you.
On that note, I can't wait to have that box as well as several different seed swap envelopes waiting for me. Having mail and packages other than bills is like getting a Christmas Stocking from Santa as a child.
I'm sorry that several of you have had thus far a negative expirience with this very first swap. :( This is my first Round Robin Exchange Expirience and have only joined this one and The Celebrations One.

Veeja11,
Just to be sure that you have not been misunderstood- are you not familiar with "internet protocal (SP?)"? FYI- It is very dangerous to be posting personal information on the internet; not just on this site, but any. To post the personal information of someone else- especially without their permission is practically spitting in their face. These days it is very easy to get SS #'s, bank account info, etc..with just a first and last name of an individual. I REALLY hope you have learned your lesson. Personally, (I'm sure you're an adult and I don't have to tell you), I really think you should apologize.
Few of us seem very upset in these last few posts- Just please lets all keep in mind that reading what someone wrote does not always protray how they feel. Tone of voice cannot be read.
Well, I just had to get all that out cause I felt this thread REALLY going in a negative direction. I really hope "The Petal Pushers" don't fall apart and can stick together for a bit.
On a lighter note-
Sassy- so glad to hear you're feeling better. Give your Kenzie BIG hugs and kisses from my Kenzie too...they're just about the same age. My McKenzie has just started rocking on her hands and knees. It is sooooo cute! I'll post pics as soon as I can. Mom's been busy making them clothes out of fleece since the weather has gotten so cold up here.
I was freezing my bunz off at my sale 8am this morning....
Well,
TTFN!!!
-Monica

*DON'T WORRY, BE HAPPY*

Monica,
Please accept my apology for expressing that this has been a negative experience for me. I only meant to refer to the latter part of this thread. I loved seeing your children. They are beautiful. I think you are a warm and fun loving person and it is my pleasure to have gotten to know you a bit. I have also enjoyed visiting with everyone else here for the most part as well. I fear I was too general in my response with my feelings showing a bit too much. I am generally a fun loving person. I like everyone to get along and don't particularly care for antics that are demeaning or inflammatory in nature. I am happy to know you and many of these other fine ladies.

Tracy

Tracy-Please don't leave this group. It's to bad that we can't just delete Carol's post. I for one will miss you and your generous and kind nature. Not forgetting your wonderful sense of humor.

Carol-You have been a member of the GW long enough to know how highly inappropriate it is to post someones last name. Also, if you took the time to read though the posts here you would see that it was Tracy who sent you the box.

RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

I've taken my time to think on this and wanted so much to handle this the right way, but Carol what you did was just plain wrong and not acceptable. I will not be including you in any more Petal Pushers swaps. With that said, I'm telling each and every one of you, from this time on, if you have a problem with a post made by a fellow member, you better bring it to my attention in email and not post on a PP board or you'll be gone too.

I will not put up with this from grown women! This is why I came into PP, to get away from that mess. We won't have it here! Before that happens, I'll walk away from PP and GW both.

Tracy we don't won't to lose you, you're a very kind and giving person and thats what this group needs more of.

Tommorrow's the 15th, hope the rest of you girls have boxes ready to go. Have a nice Sunday evening girls.

Sassy

Monica

Our little Kenzie's are doing the same things! My Kenzie is rockin' on hands and legs too and she can sit up by herself, until she sees something she wants then flop, lol.
I let her sit in front of me on my bed and she'll sit there a good while somethings. Oh what joy in my life!
And you lucky thing, you have 2! Can't wait for more pics! I'll try to get some posted soon too.

Sassy

Ladies,

Thank you to all of you for your support on this issue. I really appreciate your thoughtfulness. You are all kind and generous and I would love to stay.

Sassy, I will in future let you know if there is an issue that I think requires your intervention.

All my Best,
Tracy

RE: NEW: The Petal Pushers are back!

I've been avoiding this thread all weekend........BUT. (and I"ve got a big one!) :O)

Thank you, Sassy for handling the matter very directly & quickly. It is appreciated by all the members of the PP, I am sure. I, for one, appreciate the firm hand - no crap - stance you've taken. :O) You go girl. (lol)

Tracy- I am glad to hear that you are staying. Please don't ever let ONE person keep you from enjoying the rest of the great ladies in this group (and on GW). You are one of the BEST!!
