What could be better?

What could be better?

Little girl laughter, playing games, hugs, playing dolls and little girl tea parties, party preparations, the anticipation of a birthday and picking out a new bike! Adorable baby laughter and giggles, army crawling, finding invisible crumbs on the floors, playing with dogs ears and tails, more giggles and funny noises, snuggles, and squiggles. What could be better than weekends with our granddaughters!

Hugs, and laughter. Gathering together for meals filled with incredible Mediterranean, Thai, and home cooked Mexican food, topped off by home baked incredible pop cakes, and chocolate chip/lemon/orange pound cake. Birthday party prep and shopping, dog walks, beer tastings, more laughter, gathering together for the big birthday party, church outreach and 168 palm crosses made for Palm Sunday, more laughter, more beer tastings, relaxing, chilling, movies, more laughter and just enjoying being together. What more could be better than weekends with our 2 sons and daughter-in-loves (my new name for our daughter-in-laws).

We are blessed and our hearts are filled.

And We Have Liftoff!

And We Have Liftoff!

NASA we have had a successful launch at the launch pad birthday! The mission was filled with experimental planet cake pops surrounding Saturn, Galactic Punch, NASA banners, terrestrial tacos with all the fixings, Martian margaritas, a new two-wheel terrain vehicle and a bunch of giggling, new scientists.  The older scientists in the crowd had a blast getting the launch prepared and also enjoyed tons of laughter and hugs from the newest 7 y.o. scientist.  Mission complete!
