The card on the right was sent to us by our friends in Massachusetts. We get to see them a few times a year. They have two kids: Tori is 10 and Ryan is 7.
The swirly designs on the left are from Anne and so is the cattail.
I'm such a terrible photoprapher! The lighting was horrible and it entered my head but I didn't do anything about it. Duh! I should have had the light behind me instead of behind her. I'll learn...really, I will!
Kylie is two years and 3 months old. She loves to sing and has a whole bunch of songs that she knows. She's always asking me to sing and as soon as we finish one, she says, "How about 'Twinkle, Twinkle' or 'Itsy Bitsy Spider'" etc. I wish I could carry a tune! Luckily, she doesn't know that, yet!
I bought these dolls for my daughter Erin about 25 years ago. When Kylie comes up to visit, I let her play with them.
I told her that the green doll was named Erin but the next time she visited, she couldn't remember and called her Shaun, which is her father's name. And so the doll remained until the last time she was here. She decided on new names for both of them. The green doll is now Scott and the curly-headed one is Andrew.
She cracks me up!
Grampa bought special juice pops for Kylie. They're only about 2 inches long and perfect for a little one. She's constantly bugging him for one.
I'm always excited to find interesting envelopes in the mailbox. This one is from about 7 years ago.
I've finished 7th Heaven and really enjoyed it as I do most of James Patterson's books. This is his latest in the Women's Murder Club series.
Now, I'm reading Nineteen Minutes (I must be on a number kick!) by Jodi Picoult, another author I love. Her writing is so poetic! This one is a Columbine-influenced novel and looks at all sides of the situation. Excellent and scary! It's set in NH around Hanover. Too close to home!
There's something about the one-syllable month of March after those long 3 and 4-syllable months that just lifts my spirits!
As you can see, my friend Anne beat me to the Marjorie Kinnen Rawlings stamp. She even sent the explanation of who she was.
I love that clown because it reminds me of the time she and I went to the Ringling Museum and had such a great time walking around the grounds and the buildings and having lunch. My goodness, that was 15 years ago! Seems like yesterday!
I like the background for this page. It's cheap Walmart metallic acrylic paint. It was very easy to write on with a Sharpie.
I've saved all the letters from my friend in an old steamer trunk in the cellar and I've been digging around in it for stamps. These are from about 6 years ago.
