Mail for Fancy...

I saw a smile on Fancy's face tonight that completed my day so perfectly!
Thank you "Kummi Daddi"... Fancy loves you and misses you too much....

Chances are...

...if the house is quiet, the kids are on the front porch watching the road construction.
...if Fancy is in her bedroom she will be changing, and chances are... they are probably not her own clothes!!
...if Baby is quiet, she is digging in the pantry cupboard.
...if Tyke is building with his train set, Baby will be in there destroying it.
...if Baby is wearing undies today, she will forget they are on and so will Mama.
...if the neighbor kids come home, my kids will be outside within a minute.
...if the phone rings, we will all race to it hoping it is Daddy.
...if the house stays cool today it is because the kids played in today and Mama is making dinner in the crackpot instead of the oven.
...if Grandma calls she will be wondering how much sewing I have gotten done today. {grin}
...if Tyke gets his job done before being asked at least 4 times, it's because he wants a piece of pie.
...if you come over today, you will find me in my studio.
Now it's your turn to play... and chances are...if you go HERE you can play to! {grin}

He's my little man...

This little man loves to snorkel... really, even in the bathtub!
LOVES rocks... collects them too. This is some mica he found at the river. Grandma has gotten him into rocks.... she even gave him her old rock polisher!
I think it's safe to say that every boy LOVES to explore...
And catch things like big water spiders crawdad.

Some of us saw him!!

Where were we?? We FINALLY got to see Dad...
and his home, (for a short while) and his school (only part of it) and the city. Here are a couple pictures of what he is up to!
This is where he spends most of his time...
At this campus here... (we even finally managed to turn Tyke into a Husky fan!)
After the tour of the campus... sorry I didn't get more pictures, but I was driving!
And as you can see, Dad doesn't take near as nice pictures...
But, as I was saying, after the tour we went to the U Village and had a fun, short but lovely, reunion with Dad. We made wishes in the fountain... Mom needed a new purse (her straps were literally about to fall off!)... and of course we ate at Mango Red (who could pass up the BEST frozen yogurt!)
Definitely not Baby, and so we had to fill her needs!
But, being that Grandma and Grandpa could not fit us all in their car, and that was our ride to see Dad, we were the lucky ones who got to go....

We were away....

Had to take this picture while at an outdoor shopping center while we were away for the last couple of days... can you guess where we were???

Every evening at dinner, we all say something we are thankful for...
Baby always goes first, because she demands it! Tonight this is what Baby said... "Baby first, i thank you for ummm... broccoli!"
And yes, she really LOVES her broccoli!!

Sunday afternoon...

1 boy...
3 girls...

Goodnight Daddy...

It is hot in here.. about 82 degrees now, cooler than it was. I don't know why Fancy insists on sleeping in flannel pajamas? Maybe so she doesn't need covers??
Baby had her thinking cap on and sleeping in nothing but her diaper... but will she ever fall asleep? Air conditioner is working now, but it is taking awhile to cool off.

Fancy is one who wears her emotions on her sleeve.
