Kids Say the Darndest Things

So, my DD and her family went to his family's cabin on a lake for the weekend. Today I did email about what Ashley did while they were there. It was too cute not to share.

Email from DD:

Subject: forgot to mention a cute "Ashley" this weekend

BTW: I forgot to tell U: The kids & I were out in the yard at the cabin... they were pulling itty bitty branches off the trees. Ashley was then rubbing htem all over the trunks of the trees. She started crying, and when I asked what was wrong: she said "I tickle the trees, Mommy! And... THEY DON"T LAUGH!!!"

Ha HA HA HAAAAAAAA! :) She actually was upset that the trees didn't laugh at her tickles!!!! Funny too funny! Seriously, she cried REAL TEARS over that one! You gotta love it~

I did love it! Can you just imagine? Now I know better than to waste my time tickling trees!

I recently joined Facebook. Oh my goodness! What a wonderful way to find old friends. I am back in touch with so many people; and not only my friends, but the kids' friend and relatives. WOW!

I might post more later, but I just HAD to share this one.

Missing in Action

I cannot believe how long it has been since my last post. Shame on me!!!!!!! Part of my excuse is that I have had a heck of a time logging in, but now I have that fixed. Also, I have been out and about quite a bit more, so less time to blog. Darn!

Okay, let's see, what has happened since I last checked in? I finally started volunteering! I worked at two small concerts at the theater venue at our high school. One was the Dave Bennett Sextet. They did a tribute to Benny Goodman that had the place jumping. Sitting still was not an option. Needless to say...loved it!! The second was the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet; a group of classical guitarists who were wonderful. They performed some amazing pieces and were accompanied in the second half of their performance by a flamenco dance. Really neat! What made it even more interesting was that the dancer is from Japan. She was terrific!

On May 2 our oldest grandaughter made her first Communion. She was so beautiful in her white dress and veil! I will post a photo in this entry, but you probably will already have seen it since they always post at the top for me. LOL!

Our two youngest celebrate their birthdays this month...2 and 3! My poor daughter is being run ragged by her 2 year old son. Danny is non-stop motion right now! They spent three days here this past week and I sleep for 4 hours after they left on Sunday morning. Whew!
