It's An Epidemic, You Know........


In World News according to Paige, all baby dolls & stuffed animals in the United States of America, have the flu...........

I received strict instructions from Paige this morning as she was leaving for preschool: "Mama, if you hear any pretend calls for Mommy, Mommy, you need to get up and check on my babies."  



......sweet Pluto.....



...beautiful Daisy, she was the 1st "baby" to come down with the flu last night...so she got the "best bed" in Paige's bookcase.......



......even Donald Duck isn't immune from this sickness.......:(

I think I should be able to hold down Paige's Hospital until she gets home in three hours.....(I love my little girl and her imagination!)

57 + 12 = Grammy's Age..........




.........that's right people, Grammy is 69 today!  .......don't tell her I told you, okay?



.........this year Grammy's birthday is so close to Easter, we were able to get an Easter Egg Cake for her birthday cake.........pretty, no?  and sooooo Y-U-M-M-O!



..........Paige especially loved the orange sugar flower......and I am sure her dentist will love her if she gets a cavity ;)

Happy 69th Birthday Grammy.........We Love You VERY, VERY much!

Butter.........


......this is what I found on my dining room table earlier this week:

1.  baby doll with "bare bottom"

2. pretend stick of butter placed on "bare bottom"



When I asked Paige what was the story with the bare bottomed, butter-wearing baby doll on my dining room table, she said, "Oh, Mama, her "tush" hurts and her doctor said to put a stick of butter on it for 6 weeks and it will be fine......."

Life is so not boring in my house......:)

A Blast From My Past.........


........So, Grammy & Pop Pop came over for a visit today, and Pop was carrying a Target bag, and in it was Smurfette's Mushroom House For......ME!

I loved Smurfs when I was little and haven't really given them much thought in recent years until today, and you know what people?  I L-O-V-E them!.............




.......Well, Grammy asked Pop Pop to take her back to Target where she bought me the COMPLETE Smurf Village........and you know what?!

My kiddo loves them as much as I do!  Long live Smurfs :)

Three Years Ago Today........



.......not only was our paperwork "officially" logged-in in China for Lily's adoption.......but this little "wonder" met her "forever family" (a.k.a. my sister's family) on the other side of the world........

video

......it's funny how waiting THREE long years for our adoption feels like FOREVER, but having my niece as part of our family, it just doesn't seem long enough........I can't remember our family without her!

this video was taken during her last visit to Orlando when she fell in love with Paige's "jewels" and Cheetah Girls guitar........the kid's got talent, no?

Happy April FOOL'S Day!

Jack is off today, which is usually a good thing. I like having Jack around me, he is funny...........


But.......


.........Today is April Fool's Day and Jack is good at getting me! I trust him too much......and he uses that against me on day's like today!


........it's 6:47am, I guess I could go running into the bedroom and start hooting & hollering, the CCAA referred our LID date!!!!!!!!!!! --wonder if that would get me the same reaction when I told him I was pregnant with Paige - "YOU'RE PREGNANT!?!?" oh that was good, I'll never forget the look on his face that day.......


I think I will lay low today with Lola, she has the right idea.......








..........and Paige has learned the art of snoozing from Lola & Mama!


Happy April Fool's Day my friends, and don't let yourself get fooled!
