Need a Smile??

There is no way......


No matter how hard you try....

That you can look at all of these smiles.....

and not smile yourself!


Smiling IS contagious!!!!









Ella picked this dandelion for me as she often picks flowers she finds. On the way home from the park, she asked me why it was closing up. I had to explain that flowers can not live very long once they have been picked from the ground.


As soon as we pulled up, she jumped out of the van and replanted it....I just didn't have the heart to tell will not make a difference. Maybe when she is 5? : )

VERY contagious!!! I was smiling the entire time...and then the little flower brought tears to my eyes. That Ella...what a sweetie!!! Sophie's hair is getting so long! I have to stop and figure out who is who! :) It sure looks like a fun time at the park. Lauren would have loved to been there. She has been asking me all day to go to the GRAYground. Have a great day!
