Happy Birthday, Catie Bug!

 So. . . . what I want to know is . . . . when did we get to this place?
I know . . . . you're not 21 in the picture, but that's ok.  It's ~ you.
It will always be you.

I love you Catie Bug!

Happy Birthday, Alicia Lou!

Just when I thought you couldn't get any more gorgeous, you go and do this!
I love the new look.  I love you. 

Happy Birthday, Little Lady!


PS ~ I un-ashamedly snagged this from FB

Happy Birthday, Rease!

You're 11 today!  Where, may I ask, has the time gone?  One minute you are a
squirmy little bundle and the next you are almost all grown up!
I love you, Reasy Peasy!

Happy Birthday!

Some things. . . .

. . . . are better off left alone.  Waffle Blocks being one of them.  I can't begin to tell you the countless hours Ben played with these things.  Every child during that time and after him has been smitten with "Waffle Block Fever" ~ cousins, nieces, nephews, grandies, friends of the kiddos.  And rightly so. The imaginations that have come to life with these things is worth their weight in gold.  Twenty-some odd years of imagination in my household alone.  Ahhh. . . . the planning, the building, the final product, the fun of starting over. . . . the memories.

Pay no mind to Gumby.  He's just here for support.

Tractors, barns, and animals, oh my!

So, left or right? 

Hmm. . . . lets see now.  How should this go?

Baby Girl has found a new pastime.

The road in the town goes 'round-n-'round. . .

The girls were occupied the whole time I scrubbed my ancient tub (can I say dynamite would make me happy?).  They are thinking of them as I "speak".  The question of the day is:  "Mom-mom, are you going to clean anymore today?"    By George, I think I've found a sitter!

You can't buy them any longer. As a matter of fact, I don't think they were on the market that long when they first came out. What a pity. I don't even think I've seen them at yard sales. My sister had/has pastel Waffle Blocks. Want them. I'm so very glad that I held on to Ben's. They will belong to his young-uns one day. And they will be smitten. And so it shall be that the "Waffle Block Fever" will continue.  And my heart will sing.

So. . . . .

. . . . . I have had the busiest two weeks ever.  I have so much to chat about.  I'm sure that when I get to that point where I can actually sit down and write I may never leave the keyboard.  I may as well pack non-perishables now for the journey.  It will be wordy with picture overload.  So much.  So very much.
