My Green Thumb

I grew these myself!  I love having fresh flowers in my home but I really can't grow a thing.  Everything I plant dies but these came up this year without my doing anything.  I tried to grow them last year but they were pathetic.  Who knew that they need a year to get going?  This gives me hope and I've bought some seeds to plant next spring.  Maybe next year I'll have fresh cut flowers all summer long.

Hunger Games

I'm starting the book "Hunger Games" tonight.  I've heard so much about it and how good it is that I have to read it.  I hope it's as good as everyone says.  I love to read and I'm always looking for great reads especially when they are part of a series.  I'll let you know what I think.

Connor Turns 21

My baby turns 21 years old today.  What a milestone for both of us.  He says he doesn't feel any different but he's very excited to be "legal".  He keeps saying that he's old enough to drink now and I say "No you aren't".  He says "Yes I am".  I say "NO!" and he says "YES I AM!....................but I won't!"  I love this stage of my life and I'm excited to see what adulthood holds for him.

Kid Quotes

The mother of one of our cute little 3 year preschool girls told me that this weekend they were in line at Target shopping.  They got behind an elderly lady who was very frail and thin and leaning on a younger woman to walk.  Her daughter asked very loudly "Mom, is she DEAD?"  It reminded me of one Thanksgiving several years ago when my youngest son was about 8 or 9 years old.  We were talking about everyone's age and he asked my mom (his grandma) how old she was.  When she told him he said very seriously "Wow, you must be almost dead."  We have never forgotten that and still tell mom that she is "almost dead"!

Kid Quotes

My daughter just called me and told me that my 6 year old grandson plays "America's Got Talent" with her.  He jumps around and does flips and then says "Am I going to Vegas?"  She says "Yes" and he cheers and yells "YES!!!!!!!!!!".  I wish I could see him do it.
