Grandma’s 7 Things



Roughly a year ago my grandma huhn pulled me into her bedroom to tell me something's she wanted her grandchildren to know. 

(told in no particular order, just how I remembered them)


1.  It’s okay to eat some expired food, just smell it first before you eat it.

2.  Don’t spoil your children, but make sure they have everything they need.

3.  Always have frozen cookies in your freezer, you never know when you’ll have company.

4.  Darn your socks & sew on buttons that fall off before you buy new.

5. Find a hobby you can make some side money on.

6.  When you commit to something, always do/give your best.

7.  A man would prefer a home cooked meal over going out to eat. 

Goodbye Grandma Huhn

On Saturday morning we lost my second grandmother in 3 months. I got the call @ 6:53 am Saturday morning -- I was in a great mood because I was 30 minutes away leaving for a girls getaway weekend. But, that was quickly changed. I lost it when my Boppa called. This death was so different than my Grandma Rhoads death where she had been "gone" for so long before she passed away. I had the experience to live with my grandparents twice. The first time I lived with them was a year before I married Ryan & most recently the last year and a half in our successful endeavor to become debt free.

There are so many things I want to write about her but I'm hoping to do that tomorrow. For right now here is her obit.

Arlene Huhn, 78, of Nevada, passed away Saturday, October 8, 2011, at Rolling Green Village in Nevada following a long battle with Parkinsons Disease.

Arlene was born January 6, 1933, in Nevada to Isaac "Ike" and Myrtle (Cook) Tudor. She graduated from Fernald High School in 1951, and married her childhood sweetheart, James Daniel Huhn, March 15, 1953. Arlene was a 40 year member of the Central Presbyterian Church, most recently attending Family of Faith Church.

Arlene loved good music and influenced many young people teaching piano lessons. She also enjoyed singing, playing the piano and organ, woodworking, sewing, knitting and gardening. In her younger years, she was active in sports being a stand-out forward and softball pitcher. In addition, she was a 4-H leader for over 20 years. Arlene was a devoted wife and mother, and loved to spend time with her grandchildren and great-grandchild.

Those left to cherish her memory include, her husband of 58 years, Dan of Nevada; her son, Keith (Marce) of Nevada; her daughter, Holly (Dan) Page of Lawrence, KS; her twin sister, Darlene Adkins of Elkhart, IN; her sister-in-law, Thelma Tudor of MN; seven grandchildren, Ashley (Ryan), Carly, Haley, Riley, Kyle, Kirby and Brian; one great-grandson, Tucker; along with many other relatives and friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents; one brother, Earl Tudor; and one brother-in-law, George Adkins.

Memorial services will be held 11 a.m. Thursday, October 13, 2011, at Central Presbyterian Church in Nevada. Visitation will be 5:30-8 p.m. on Wednesday evening at Bacon Funeral Home in Nevada.

Memorial contributions may be made to Family of Faith Church, Parkinson's Foundation or the Rolling Green Resident Activity Fund.

Bacon Funeral Home and Crematory in Nevada is handling arrangements.

It's A...


...and that's about all we know or can guess at this point. I had another appointment yesterday & the heartbeat was right at 150. At this point in the pregnancy with Tucker we had a good indication it was a boy because of the lower heartbeat. (he was around 135ish.) We are leaning more towards a girl (at this point anyway) Either way, boy or girl it'll be loved! I am a week away from being in the 3rd trimester! YIKES!! IT HAS GONE SO STINKING FAST this time. I am definitely starting to get to the uncomfortable, slow-moving stage but am feeling great! According to this website I follow baby H will be here in roughly 97 days!
(Lord willing) Well, that's it for this baby update! As of today, we're thinking GIRL--but this is subject to change at ANY POINT :-)

whoo are you Tuesday

Here are this week's questions!
1. Do you sleep with the tv or music on?
No, I am a FIRM believer there should not be a TV in the bedroom. period. I'm old fashioned like that! :-)
2. What is your favorite technology device that you own?
my blackberry.
3. Do you shop the ads for groceries?
oh yeah. I love Wednesdays when the advertiser comes, Sundays when the Sunday paper is out & two favorite websites I check daily for deals www.hip2save.com or www.mojosavings.com
4. What are you favorite pair of shoes? no, not really. I'm a rare girl who doesn't really care about shoes. In fact, I'm sure Ryan owns more shoes than I do!
5. Have you done any fun fall activities yet?
does buying a small sack of candy corn count? I have my fall decorations out I hope to get put up today or tomorrow. Hope to hit up the pumpkin patch next weekend.
