And they did. (The cookies burning I mean.)
Good thing I keep my camera in my pocket!

Our little Cami is now 7, and is sweet as ever.
Last week I got to pick her up from school, arriving a bit early,
so her teachers invited me to join them in circle time.
One of Cam's teachers asked me if my first name really is Honey.
As I was explaining the origin of Grandma Honey,
the other teachers gathered around to hear.
They were interested in me, because they were all so interested in Cami.
They love her!
The best part of Cami's school is the pure unconditional love the teachers have for these very special children.
I was fighting the tears just watching and being in their presence.

I've never seen a baby walk like this, have you?
And then, all in the same evening, she got the hang of real walking!
I don't know which was more fun...watching Violet, or watching the excitement of her parents!

Never have I seen this in the 13 years I have known him.
One of our kids gave us a theater gift card for Christmas...
so he seemed very happy to have money left on the card for popcorn!
And I just thought he didn't like popcorn.
I didn't realize it was because he's just
The truth is, he has a very hard time spending money on himself.

I don't think so.
I was just sitting at our kitchen table writing a birthday card to McKay when suddenly I heard a huge roaring noise. It sounded like a humungous truck had suddenly landed in our backyard.
Then all went silent. I looked out the window to see this.
I mean really, how does a tree just decide to jump out of its spot?
It wasn't all that windy outside. A little, the wind chimes were breezing. But not enough to make a tree suddenly uproot and fling across our pool fence.
Every week of my birthday, for the past 16 years, this tree would bloom these gorgeous purple flowers all over. Just my birthday week and maybe a few days after that, and then they would be gone.
I am quite happy I was not out there with our grandkids at the time.
They had just left 30 minutes before.

4. We found these at Costco over the weekend.
It is so rare for them to carry the organic peaches.
Don't these look wonderful!

Then the floods came.
Well not really, but the leaky dishwasher that caused all this damage....
That caused us to live in a hotel with our visiting family for 5 days.
A unique Christmas breakfast hotel-style.
and bedspreads and just make do,
until I could make a decision on what floor to put in.
And here is our finished product...
Hopefully it won't stay this way.
Because that means I am not alone.
And I usually do.

in one big swoop of my hand,
and I will save them for another time.
