I received a text today from my daughter, Deb.  It read:

"I forgot to tell you, Girlie and Nick got all ready to paint last night. While I was laying on the couch (sick as a dog), they both walked in with their paint smocks on that you made for them. I wanted to cry.

They were soooooo sweet.  It crushed me that I couldn't paint with them. So, Nick and Girlie took their garbage BAG smocks off and Nick neatly rolled them back up and put them on my desk.
So, so sweet. "

The kiddies are waiting for Nana to arrive on May 11th so we can paint and make another new journal.
I'm excited and can't wait to spend time with them.  Details later.....

We're up this early
for rhyme and reason,
We've changed the clocks
to match the season.

For that hour of sun
everyone's been craving,
We all sprang forward
for daylight saving!

Soft and Squishy Treat

"I want muffallows, please."
Children love muffallows.  They're so soft and squishy and good!
Who doesn't love muffallows!
They're great in hot chocolate, a fun treat for Girlie and Nick and sometimes even mom and dad.

Girlie calls MARSHMALLOWS...."muffallows"!

Who Doesn't Want It!

"Somebody's gonna get dessert!"
...says Girlie every night after dinner.  She's a very serious eater, a no nonsense kind of girl.  For a 2 1/2 year old she is the best little eater I've ever seen.  She settles in to her meal and as soon as she's finished, she let's everyone know; 

"Somebody's gonna get dessert!"

Just toooooo sweet!  I could just eat her up!
