What a great day!


This morning I was getting my kids old toys and clothes packed up to take to Winnipeg for my nieces and nephew when I got a phone call from 2 of my darling nieces. Brianna is 3 1/2 and Aliyah is 22 months. Brianna was phoning to invite me over for supper ("we haf fre fries and kicken") and Aliyah was watching her favourite movie "Annie" and wanted to sing the song "Gum Gog"(Dumb Dog) to me. Then my sister sent me this photo. I miss them sooooo terribly much. I haven't seen them for a year and I am so excited to get to spend a couple of weeks with them. Outside of my own kids, there are no kids that can put a smile on my face like these two little girls. They are so excited that we are coming to visit. The countdown has already started in our house. Only 18 more sleeps until we go to Winnipeg

And then to make things even better my Scraptivity kit came today. I can't wait to start playing with it. Between that and the 3 cjs I am working on, life is pretty busy this week.

I want to leave you with this thought today! I really liked it and wanted to pass it on:

God has put something noble and good into every heart His hand has created. Mark Twain
