A Smile All The Way From Heaven

~ a smile and a twinkle of the eye, melted even the hardest heart every time ~

A Smartly Dressed Package

An angel at Christmas!

Twinkle lights.

A smartly dressed cat.

And a smartly dressed package. Two boys who love their Mom went in on a present and this is how they wrapped it. My heart sings!

Grandma Is All Around Us

In the simplest ways, Grandma is all around us.

Cookie Jar.
Pin Cushion.
Collector Spoon.

Love them, love her.

Rakes make the best snow fight weapon!

We got snow over the weekend. Two snow days from school. Oregon shuts down when we get snow. The first night, Nathan and McKenna were outside trying to build a slushy snowman. I took the rake out front to "shovel" the front drive by the car. The kids thought I wouldn't notice them sneaking up behind me, snow in hand. Quickly I turned the rake backwards and in one swift motion sprayed them with snow from the rake. It was GLORIOUS! They were SOAKED! That'll teach them to try to sneak up on Mom!
