Today we….

-sat in the big, brown rocker and ate strawberry yogurt while watching Curious George


-went to the bookstore in search of books about the beach…..and we found three!
-ate hamburgers with your daddy
-watered your seedlings and talked about how they are growing so big
-lay on our tummies on your bedroom floor and read your new beach books
-said prayers before naptime
-sang in the car all the way to Lulu’s house


-use scissors to cut up paper and glued them to other paper
-lay in the big bed, watched the wind blowing the leaves on the trees and fed each other pretzels like a mama and baby bird
-ate hot dogs at the baseball game
-yelled and cheered when they scored and made good plays at the game
-giggled as you knocked off your GrandBob’s hat and glasses because you were so excited about the game
-laughed as you tried to swing yourself while we were walking down the sidewalk
-gave kisses and hugs as we said goodnight when you got into your mommy and daddy’s car

Today, I said thank you to God for your sweet little soul.

Time to Catch UP

I went to visit my parents for a few days. Just me. No daughter. No granddaughter. Just a plain ‘ole selfish me-visit. Enjoyed good company, good weather and good food! The first pictures are at my aunt’s house on the lake.

This Little Piggie…..



I am participating in another iheartfaces challenge! This one is about DESSERTS! This past Saturday we took our granddaughter, Mady, to Nashville to see her Aunt Beanie in an outdoor concert. Before the concert they made these yummy-licious cupcakes. They were so cute (and delicious)!

lulu learns a lesson

The other day I went into the green room (just a room in our house that is green and houses Mady’s bed, toys and my computer) to wake Mady from her nap. It is difficult to catch her while she is still sleeping but I was able to accomplish it this time. I saw that she had her favorite octopus over her head (his name is Oswald). I quietly grabbed my camera and got a quick shot before she woke up. THAT’S when I noticed something amiss. It sort of looked as though she may have had a leaky diaper of the brown variety (if you know what I mean). But as I kept looking, I saw the culprit. Yes. The culprit was markers. These markers!

I tried to think. Where did those come from? They weren’t in her bed. They weren’t beside her bed. I always do a quick scan of the room before nap time. How did those lovely markers appear? Oh yea…..her crayon box was in the rocking chair. Oops! So, I woke her up and she immediately said, “I colored.” Oh yes, you certainly did my little cupcake girl. I asked her what she colored and she promptly replied, “I made leg decorations.” What else can you do but smile and of course, take pictures of her “leg decorations.” Enjoy her creation!

Notice the belly button decoration and the coloring pages that have NO color on them!

She didn’t forget any area of her body (except her face).

Now, look at the following two pictures and her precious face! She was so proud!

And finally, I have to show you the next one because of ALL the detail….notice the multiple pacys in one hand and Oswald in the other. So adorable, so Madyson!

She may have colored on her body and got a little on the bed, but she didn’t touch the wall at all! And of course, they were washable markers and she actually got to christen my new kitchen sink. She loved that!!
