Recently Miss Dub1, pictured above, was watching "Annie" with her family. She made the following observation (and I quote ...)
"Those orphans think life with parents makes life perfect. That's pretty naive."
Yeah ... she turned FIVE less than two months ago.
(and shaking) all summer long, but in less than a week she will be in her new home (in the Great Northwest.)
Yeah ... that would be kind of bad, huh?
L'il Mr. Gee can fly. (See here for a picture of Miss Dub1 flying. It must be genetic.) Mr. Gee really likes to bowl. And to smile.
I hope you enjoyed this spattering of shopping, glowing, baking and flying. You've got to admit, that is pretty darned random.
Since I am celebrating my Nannyhood, let's see what the others have to say:
Miss Dub2: "Yes, I am a lovely fairy princess who just happens to indulge in the occasional marker for a snack."
Sigh. I sure do love being a Nanny.**
* These two top pictures are of Lake Michigan, taken from a beach in Wisconsin.
** "Nanny" is what they have named me. I am related to them and have not been hired to take care of them ... although I would do it in a heartbeat for free.
*** While I was gone ... I won another GiveAway!! I know it seems to be unfair that I apparently have a gift for this sort of thing. Just accept it. This particular bit of unexpected bounty is a beautiful coral necklace from Isola Bella. Check out her work. It's yummy.
And here we have L'il Gee striking a "this is how big my pregnant belly is" pose. For now (and for the next 6 weeks) this is the best kind of bonding I am going to see between L'il Gee and his L'il Sis.
They both make me just a L'il Teary-Eyed. How about you?
And if it's new summer swimwear you're looking for ... Miss Dub2 models this dashing little number with flair ... all while demonstrating summer meal ideas.
Hope your summer is going swimmingly.
More light in the Family Room.Bedroom.
Oh ... I just found this picture on my other camera when I downloaded it. If that isn't the lightest, brightest bit of sunshine you've ever seen, then I don't know what is.
Dub Girls were here, they picked out this scrumptious bunny for me. It's no surprise that she is dressed in pink. That is Miss Dub1's all-time favorite color. Consequently, this is my all-time favorite bunny.
I wish you a sunny and spectacular Easter weekend. That is indeed what has been ordered for my neck of the woods.
So ... you need to know a couple of things:
#1) It is pretty hard to get anything done around here what with the beauty and entertaining skillz of these three girlies.
#2) Contrary to popular belief, summer has not arrived in AZ-town. The water that these guys are frolicking in is pretty much free-eezing. You must understand that they are from CHI-town and have not felt the sun on their extremities for quite some time. I am personally hoping that they get over this need to "dip" before someone does a swan dive.
But come to think of it, life has been sunnier since they arrived.
Last week, while at my friend Renee's house, she helped me make a cover that fits snuggly over a composition book (I bought one with graph paper.) I had admired hers and she stepped up so I could have my own. After I got home, I decided to embellish the front and put pockets on the inside (to be seen in another post.)
"W's", The Dubs. Inside were these precious gifts from Miss Dub1 and Miss Dub2. Their mother helped them pick out the lovely hankerchief, above (I am told they are from Anthropologie) and the engraved mirror in the embellished case, seen below.
Miss Dub1 insisted that it have an "N" on it ... for "Nanny". Miss Dub 2 tried to second the opinion, but mostly she just slobbered a lot and grinned, so ... "N" it was.
I think I have a new favorite letter.
Do you blame me?
