We Interrupt Our Weekly Updates

With Who Wears it Best Wednesday

Formerly Known as Twinning Tuesday

So at my birthday picnic two set of "twins" attended. Flo picked out one set, Grace and Peni! Lanie and Lea was the other. Check out their photo shoots.

Grace and Peni

Both are wearing Kirsten's baking outfit minus the "wooden" shoes.

Lanie and Lea

Here the girls chose Addy's summer plaid. They did wear the boots.

So who wore each outfit best? Or which is your favorite pair?

Thank you for stopping by!  Much love to all!

Weekly Update #6

Kirsten's Birthday

An Historic Event 😄

Whatcha doin'?
Sitting and watching the sunset. What's up?
I, we have an idea for Kirsten's birthday.
Cool. spill.
I'm sitting.
So we think we should to an historic picnic.
That is a great idea. 
Oh, yes! 
That is lovely.
Hey, before it gets too dark we need a trip to the magic wardrobe.
Let's go!
What's the magic wardrobe?
It's a place we look for ideas when we want to go back in time. (giggles)
I think we have enough outfits.
Well, Addy is close; the styles for girls did not change that much.
What's happening?
Searching the wardrobe for what to wear to Kirsten's birthday picnic.
Cool. Hey, I'll go as Singing Bird.
Are you sure?
Um, yeah.
Then we have one extra pioneer outfit.
[Time passes as everyone gets dressed and sets up the picnic.]
Hey, what's going on here?!
Wow! This is great!
Quick, go change!
I'll be right back!
[Runs into the house to change into and hurries back]
Princess gets the throne!
Okay, I can't sit anymore.  How did anyone sit for visitations in these hoops?!
To my sister, I wish you nothing but the best on your birthday!

Hear, hear!
(side note: we know huzzah is not 1800s speak, but we like it.)

Weekly update #5

What a Week

Opening Note
After much consideration I must speak.  I grew up learning that God is love.  That God created all.  I learned about Jesus and the good shepherd and the great commandment.  My heart is with the good shepherd who left the 99 to help the one.  My heart is with my neighbors.  What does that mean?  It means I believe in love and equality for all and where there is inequality there must be change.  It means Black Lives Matter.  It means that I may never understand or be able to walk in your shoes, but I am here to listen and to learn and to love. I also support the good police officers out there; yes, you can do both.  With regards to the riots, please think of times in your own life when you get extremely frustrated.  Do you sit there calmly?  Do you blow up and lash out?  Depending on the situation I can be known to do both, so...

As I know this is a very conflicted topic right now, I remind you that I moderate comments and anything disrespectful or hateful will not appear on this page. This is a page of love and love only.  If this opening note compels you to un-follow my blog, well, I'm sorry to hear that. I thank you for the time we spent together and wish you the best.

Monday June 1 National Say Something Kind Day
I can't believe you are drinking lemonade during national Iced Tea Month.
Hey, I have tea too. 
Iced tea in a real tea cup?
Sure why not.  You know it is National Say Something Kind Day, right?
(giggles) Yeah, I do. Not fishing for compliments are we?
Nope not at all. (giggles)
It was nice for Peni to share her tablet with you.
Yes, it's a great little device, she said we can all use long as she isn't already. (giggles)
Would you like some lemonade? It's the good kind.
Sure, thank you!

Tuesday June 2 Birthday Celebrations
Woo hoo!  Today is Opa Hans' birthday.
Grace and Peni made his favorite cake.
Very tasty!
Angel food cake.
We didn't have any strawberries though.
Hope you had a great day, Opa Hans!

Hey, what other days are coming up?
Hmm, national egg day, national hug your cat day, national doughnut day...
I like those!

Wednesday June 3 National Egg Day
So today is National Egg Day. We decided to decorate a few for this special occasion. What do you think?
My favorite is the green one.  
However, I love scrambled eggs for breakfast. Really any time of day is perfect for scrambled eggs.  What is your favorite way to eat eggs?

Thursday June 4 National Hug Your Cat Day
You know we are embracing this day.  (giggles)
Especially after our dear Cheri crossed over to Rainbow Bridge last week. We're hugging the others a bit tighter.
So true. 
Do you hug your cat regularly?  We do, so they don't mind it at all.
Unless we choose a time when they don't want to be hugged. (laughing)
True, then it is a very quick hug.

Friday June 5 National Doughnut Day
Hi!  Did you know the first Friday in June is National Doughnut Day?  
Yep.  Doughnuts have been around a really long time.  During World War I the Salvation Army headed to the front to serve a bit of home to the soldiers.  They originally thought about cake and pie, but the facilities weren't that equipped.  they decided on the doughnut! And the Doughnut Girls rose in fame.
My favorite is the chocolate frosted.  What's your favorite?

Saturday June 6
Well, we're not sure what Saturday was, but we took advantage of the great weather to do laundry and other things.  Hope you had a nice week!  See you again soon.

Much love and warmest wishes!
