"We love you Miss Hannigan"

Last night I was getting ready to go to an engagement party. It was a fancy and glittery party so I was making my makeup dark. It definitely wasn't as bold as the stunning "Cleopatra" eyes that I saw there, but for my normal near-naked eyes it was something different.

John was watching me. Hair clipped up, eye shadow on, red shimmery dress in place. He said, "You look like that lady in Annie."

"You mean Miss Hannigan??!!" I half laughed and half shuttered.

"Yeah," he said.

"What about Cinderella?" I said, trying to get him to rethink the matter! Cracked me up!

Carol Burnett kind of reminded me of my mom, so I took comfort in that. Well, sort of.

9 years old already!

Can't believe that the little buddy is already 9!
He requested coconut cream pie. Smart boy! I hadn't made them for years so was surprised at how easy my recipe was. We'll be making this one again!
There are a group of teachers here for 2 weeks doing seminars for kindergarten teachers in our city. They are doing a fantastic job. We were happy that they could celebrate with us!

May the God of hope bless you, JP, and fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may abound in hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Thankful for another year

The end of May brought a pumpkin pie, some homemade cards, and a grateful heart.
