Lights, camera, action.

Sometimes little girls can be difficult.
Just because I thought that having them stand in front of my sunflowers would make a fantastic photo, doesn't mean that they agreed.

Sometimes, you are just better off to take the easy shot.

My granddaughters stayed overnight, and they popped out of bed at 7am.
So, Mimi just kept to her schedule.

There's a little girl in that pile of blankets, with a stuffed whale.
And two cats in attendance.
What's up with that?
This one said that she didn't NEED a nap, that was 5 minutes ago.

That bear is Raoul.
I am afraid I was forced to tell a small tale.
She wanted something to take to bed with her. I offered her the bunny, but she said she wanted something that her mother had when she was little.
So I picked up the bear, and said, 'oh, like this little guy'.
I told her that not only did Mommy have this bear when she was little, but she named him Raoul, and she bit the end of his toe off.
Her eyes got big, she clutched Raoul, and went straight to sleep.
Aren't I awful? I had to call my daughter and tell her, so she wouldn't give me up.
And the poor little bunny found a new home over the bed.

Now I have a complaint.
Seems women have it all.
Well, almost.
We can't have these, now can we?

Twinkletoes, by Sketchers. The little gems on the toes light up when you walk.

I would buy a pair right now, if I could.

And these.
Hello Kitty underwear.

Heart be still.

So women of the world......tell me. Why can't we have them.
Cool sneakers that light up, and Hello Kitty underwear.
I asked my granddaughters.
"Why do you have all the fun?"
Ava said.
"Because we are the kids."
It is quiet at my house, the kids have gone home. Eddie is on the sofa next to me, once more my only baby.

Think "Bedazzler"....they won't "lite up" when you walk, but they'll twinkle in the sunlight!

Fun times with the grandchildren here! Cool sneakers, too. I called Santa Claus one time because my youngest was trying my patience. I got through the elf receptionist and then some other elf secretaries until I finally got the big man on the phone. He talked to my son and told him to be a good boy for his mother. And it worked!
It was my father all along.

I miss him!

Yes, I want to know why I can't have fun sneakers too. I want ones with animal faces. But nooooo, only small kids sizes.
Lovely pictures and that's some bear story. :)

Your blog makes me smile all day long. Now when I see my underware, I am gonna think of Hello Kitty... when I tie on my shoes, I am gonna want lights!

See what you do to me????

Since I can't have fun underwear like I did when I was a kid, I decided to buy white ones and tie-dye them!!! Now I have the funnest undies of them all! HA! I'd show you, but you're too far away.
