Emily Waters is coming this Saturday. I can’t wait!
Congratulations to …
Tamara, who posted on January 12 at 1:34 p.m.
She’ll be getting some very happy mail to put away in her very cute studio.
Seriously, click here and scroll all the way down. Tamara has pictures of her scrap space posted on her blog, and I guarantee you’ll be inspired!
By the way, Ann Mabee and Nancy Lee were also correct (just not fast enough!)
As hard as I try, the weekends just get away from me — sorry for the wait on the winner.
So, Sunday morning, Taft comes downstairs completely dressed for church (shirt, tie, belt — he even had his brown socks & shoes on!) and we had a conversation that went something like this …
Taft: Am I the only one that knows what day it is?
Mom: No, honey — we all know it’s church day, but you rock because you got dressed — thanks for getting dressed all by yourself!!
Taft: Mom, I know it’s Sunday, but is it January 13th?
Taft: Oh, phew, we didn’t miss it.
Mom: Miss what?
Taft: Purple bunny’s birthday. He was born on January 13th. We have got to make cupcakes and plan his party right now.
[this is all news to me, btw -- I was completely unaware that we celebrated birthdays for our stuff animals]
Mom: Wow — I’m so glad you remembered. Can we make the cupcakes after church?
Taft: No. I’d better get started now.
and he did. He got the cake mix and insisted that we get the "cake dough" done so we could bake them as soon as we got home — and we did. And he iced them and put sprinkles on them and rounded up quite a collection of candles and other goodies. At one point in the early afternoon he said to me, "Mom, I don’t think we are paying enough attention to purple bunny — it is his birthday."
life is good.
