Grandma Cleyone and Grandma Vickie come and visit and play while I run errands and finish household organization projects. Thank heaven for Grandmas. . .I am lucky my kids have such great ones! I miss mine dearly.

I found this poem, my mother would sing it to us whenever we would go to my Dad's parents house in Eugene. . . it was a great old farm.

Over the river and through the woods
To grandmother;s house we go;
The horse knows the way
To carry the sleigh,
Through the white and drifted snow.

Over the river and through the woods,
Oh, how the wind doth blow!
It stings the toes
And bites the nose
As over the ground we go.

Over the river and through the woods,
Now grandmother's house I spy!
Hurrah for the fun! Is the pudding done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!

We love to color but most times. . . chewing on crayons becomes the theme! :)

Silly girls in the tub :)

Getting Clean . . .part of the morning routine.
I liked this poem. . . .
Always Finish
If a task is once begun
Never Leave it till it's done.
Be the Labor great or small,
Do it well or not at all.

Walking on Sunshine on Wednesdays!

Walking On Wednesdays!!

So Miss Sabra really likes to push her sister around in her walker, so Grandma's (Vickie and Cleyone) bought her the cutest baby stroller. She was pushing that thing around like crazy today as well as helping her sister cruise around too.

The next picture is of Paula (Odette's Physical therapist) doing some "container play" before they started the grand tour of walking all over the living room!
Paula visits us on Wednesdays quite typically. . . we have had illnesses and she has been out of town so this is the first visit in 3 weeks! So happy to have her back!

This picture is from a previous day walking around. . . because I was videoing the walking, the camera died! Isn't that typical ? But, oh yeah we have so much fun in these parts :)!!

So here is the cutest video of Odette talking :)Sabra has been doing a very funny sniff and of course she would not do it for the camera but she definitely gurgled and cooed alot. . .. very precious. Little things are the very sweetest.
I like this poem alot.
Little Things
by Julia Fletcher Carney
Little drops of water,
Little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean
And the pleasant land. . .
Little deeds of kindness,
Little words of love,
Help to make earth happy
Like the heaven above.
