Snippets ...

Life has been something around here lately. Here are the things I want to remember:






  • Early Friday morning, I am awakened to the sound of Maddie yelling, "IT'S PARTY TIME!" (don't ask me why) I walk in to see her and this is what I find: The picture really doesn't do it justice, because it's cropped. Because the hat was the only thing she was wearing. That's right folks, evidently "party time" means wearing a princess hat and going starkers everywhere else. Must have been some party ...


  • Uncle Danny was here!!!!! They stopped by en route to London. The girls LOVE IT when they get to see Uncle Danny. I love to see him, too, but he's kind of a goober.


  • We drove by our beloved Optimist Park today and it was gone! The trees were gone and all of the old, scary, someone's-going-to-get-tetanus-or-worse playground equipment had disappeared! In it's place was a bunch of tilled up dirt. Sophie says, "oh good. Now they are going to plant some seeds and grow some good playgrounds." Let's hope so.


  • Speaking of Sophie pants, she had her big debut singing "Tomorrow" with the Horizon alumni kids. (Each year they do an alumni concert to benefit a CRA family dealing with grief or illness. It began 3 years ago when my mom was diagnosed. It's always big fun, like a reunion, only better because it's more than one class that comes back.) She did good! Of course I didn't get any photos of this because my camera was being pre-menstrual. Maybe someone else did and I can get one of those.


  • Got to see Andria! I just love her.

Maddie and Chandler Grace would really get their party on together. She too, loves to take off her shirt and shorts and diaper. Every mother's dream, right?!
Oh, and everyone should have a goober uncle-we have one of those, too!

WHAT! Our playdate park is gone? What are they doing? Putting up a parking lot?! I swear I hate construction and concrete taking over every tree and living thing!There goes more of our ozone! Aside from my rant- I love your posts! And I love that all the members of your family have Dan in their name... Danna, Daniel, Dannika, Danielle, Dan Folgelburg
